PROMOTED FROM THE RANKS. Thirteen commissions in line battalions and foul in the Royal Artillery have been conferred, and ara notified in the London Gazette. Most of these pro- m otions from the ranks affect Colonials, who have fought so splendidly and endured hardships so herocially in South Africa. Only one more C.I.V., Private Sydney K. H. Little, is added by Lord Roberts to the list of army officers, and he receives a vacant second lieutenancy in the Connaught Rangers. On the nomination of the Governor of Western Australia similar rank in the Manchester Regiment, on augmentation, is conferred on Corporal Cecil Edwin Northcott and Private Stanley M. Perkins, who have served with that Colony's contingent; while the Governor of Victoria has selected Private Harold E. Elliott, of the Imperial Australian Regi- ment, for a subaltern's vacancy in Princess Char- lotte of Wales's (Royal Berkshire) Regiment. The Governor of Cape Colony has nominated no less than eight members of the Cape Police, the Cape Mounted Rifles, Brabant's Horse, and the Rhodesian, Protectorate Regiment for commissions in the regi- ments stated after the candidates' names: Private Graham Agnew, the Northumberland Fusiliers. Corporal Claude Gibney Davies, the Royal War- wickshire Regiment. Corporal E. H. A. Hodgson, the South Wales Borderers. Trooper John Colloryan Michell, the Worcester- shire Regiment. Trooper Cornwallis Charles Wyndham Maude, the Worcestershire Regiment. Trooper Louis Horsford D'Oyly Moule, the East Lancashire Regiment. Lieutenant John Charles Field Richards, the Hampshire Regiment. Trooper Bertie Harry Waters Taylor, Princess Charlotte of Wales's (Royal Berkshire Regiment). Trooper Aylmer Willoughby Wallace, the King's Own (Yorkshire Light Infantry). The members of the Victorian Bushman Force, Trooper Alexander T. King and Private Evelyn Ffronch, have also been promoted to be second lieu- tenants in the Royal Artillery, as also has Mr. George M. A. Gregory, a University candidate. Another University officer is Mr. Thomas G. Cun- ningham, who has been serving as a private in the 7th Middlesex Volunteer Rifle Corps, and has now gained a commission in the Royal Garrison Artil- lery.
