THE SICK AND WOUNDED IN SOUTH AFRICA. WITH a desire to look at the matter in a judicial spirit, and with the utmost sympathy for the gallant soldiers who have been exposed to the hardships of war, it is nevertheless a little difficult to derive such clear ideas as one would wish from the debate on Mr Burdett-Coutt's allegations concerning the treatment of the sick and wounded in South Africa. It must, of course, be recognised that the hon. gentleman preferred his com- plaint in the utmost good faith, that he be- lieved honestly every word he wrote and said, but a great deal depends upon the way in which he looked at the matter. Sir Howard Vincent was of the opinion that Mr Burdett-Coutts had seen everything in South Africa "through the very darkest spectacles." Again, Mr Burdett-Coutts' allegations may be capable of confirmation right up to the hilt, but on the occasion of the debate in the House of Commons it can scarcely be said that there was as much corroboration forth- coming as would have enabled one of Her Majesty's judges to say the case was proved. It is noteworthy that all authorities hesitate to attach the blame to any particular individual or department. Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman said he thought blame was due somewhere, but he declined altogether, with the knowledge before him, to apportion it." Mr Burdett-Coutts did not lay the blame on any individual, and said his own personal opinion was that the fault lay not here, but in South Africa. Others blamed the Govern- ment, but there was a general indisposition to fasten censure upon any particular source. So far there is not much evidence to go upon, and anything like a complete judgment must be suspended until we have the result of the official inquiry which is to be made with regard to the whole subject of these allegations. The difficulty of forming a final opinion on the debajte was increased by the position in which the Government were placed of having to prove a negative. This is a task which is always difficult, and frequently impossible, but still it was clear, from the remarks I with which Mr. Wyndham opened the discussion, what the defence is. To a certain and lamentable extent," said Mr Wyndham, "it was true that our wounded and our sick at Bloemfontein had in this campaign, as in other campaigns, been exposed to terrible hardships, the full extent of which was not perhaps altogether gauged by those who had not seen war; but at the same time the hardships were'inevitable, and everything possible had been done to meet the circum- stances of the case." The question at issue is, therefore, this-were there in any consider- able degree hardships which might have been avoided 1 It is very certain that many things happened which are to be regretted, but all the, evidence which is forthcoming is conflict- ing on the point as to whether they could have -been prevented by reasonable care. Some of the sick and wounded say that they were treated with exceptional care, and others that their condition was pretty much as described by Mr Burdett-Coutts. Sir H. Campbell-Bannerman remarked that for one man who died from wounds, two died from disease, but that is pretty much the case with all wars. As Sir William Howard Russell said Heaven lets loose all its plagues on those who shed men's blood, even in the holiest cause." Fever, dysentery, sunstroke, and other evils, generally including the dreaded cholera, follow in the train of armies, and cause more deaths than the bullets and shells of the enemy. Such plagues are inseparable from war. Whatever may be the foundation of Mr Burdett-Coutts' complaint, he has proved that which we knew already, that war is a frightful evil in any circum- stances.
THE FORWARD MOVEMENT IN THE BARRY DISTRICT. We have pitched our tent at last at Barry Docks, states the last issue of The Torch with reference to the Forward Movement. We are sure you will rejoice at this, for you know how our late devoted general treasurer desired it, and most of you know how such a place must stand in need of a work like ours. There is a population of some 32,000 in the Barry district—17,000 of whom live in Barry Dock alone. This population is fearfully mixed, and many of the wildest spirits of this and other lands have found their way into it. This the late Mr Edward Davies, Llandinam, knew well; and as this marvellous development was the result of the enterprising spirit of his renowned father and friends, he naturally felt responsible to God for its moral and religious welfare as well as for its commercial success. The appeal made to me by that good friend has often haunted me in the night watches, and I have fancied before now that I could hear him say from the battlements of Heaven—" Remember Barry Dock Remember that precious souls are perishing there. Haste to their rescue." At last, that desire has been partly realised, for we have secured an excellent evange- list and temporary hall for the work, and that chiefly through the good office of our friend, Mr John Cory, J.P. Things are now looking bright and promising there, and we hope the day is not far off when a memorial hall shall be erected there in loving memory of one of the greatest friends the movement ever had. There cannot be a better place to erect such a monument of his beautiful memory than Barry Dock. Our young Barry Dock Centre has already branched out to Barry Island. Through the kind- ness of Mr Henry Radcliffe we have secured an iron building to hold some 120 persons, and we are looking forward to the day when that young and promising branch will develop into a good centre. There is need of other centres in the fast-growing Barry district, and we hope through the mercy of God, to plant some of them before the evil has demoralised the young to the level of some neglected localities we know. If God's people are not alive to the salvation of the people the devil and his emissaries are alive to their damnation.

MIlS. GEUNDTS JOTTINGS The German Army dogs, according to the Regiment," are so trained that when they find a dead body they set up a prolonged howling. If no one comes, they take the dead man's cap Or some small article, and with this in their teeth go on a hunt for their trainer, whom they lead to the spot. If the man is wounded, he gives hiS cap to the dog, and the same object is accomplished. Verily, a dog is man's most faithful friend. It has been brought to my notice that the of a certain hotel in this district complain of thS remarks I made last week anent a meritorious action performed by them in behalf of the poor waifs and strays. I am sorry, but it is seldoo that the fair and gentle sex take umbrage wheØ their praiseworthy efforts are duly acknowledge in a suitable way. The Barry District Glee Society intend giving a grand open air concert at Friar's Point, Bartl Island, next Saturday week, admission Is, previouS to proceeding to Paris. I am exceedingly gratified to chronicle tbS further success of Mr Alcwyn Jones, son of )It John Jones, 153, Holton-road, Barry Docks. )It Jones is a student at St. David's College, Lampetetr and at the recent examination he headed the list I in classics, securing the prize offered for tbil subject. Mr Jones is not yet twenty years of age, and his several successes hitherto are in thetJI.
