Situation in S. Africa. —■ ■ ■ ■ TELEGRAM TO SIR HERCULES I ROBINSON. Position of the Chartered Company. I PRESIDENT KRUGER AND MR CECIL RHODES. PKKTORIA, Monday.—The following telegram "fcs sent to-day by the State Secretary to Sir Hercules Robinson, High Commissioner The Newspapers during the last few days state that her Majesty's Government still shows partiality towards the directors of the British South Africa Company, especially towards Mr Rhodes, This Government does not believe the correctness of these statements. In their opinion the Chartered Company, as at present oontrolled, is a source of danger to the whole of South Africa. The tocursion into this Republic has been made by officers and troops carrying arms belonging to that company, and the special prohibition of er Majesty's Government was not able tO hold them back, notwithstanding that the Chartered Company had taken upon itseif the International obligations of Great Britain. The Position of the persons who knew beforehand of *he plan of incursion and who supported it is. as -8 See, defended by the statement that they acted Ù1 this way in the interests and tor the extension Imperialism in South Africa. This Govern. ment does not believe that the end ought to iustifyfhe means, and is convinced that her Majesty's Government does not desire to bo served by such criminal actions. hose who defend and uphold the incursion, and. on the other hand, those who pressed for a Senerous treatment of the rebels who are at present in gaol, do not realise what injury and mischief they are causing by adopting such an Wtitude. In the course of an interview with Reuber's 4ent this evening. President Krugor declared hat hI!! astonishment at the official defence of Mr Oecil Rhodos and the British South Africa Company in last Friday's debate in the House of Commons was unbounded, and he only Wished be had been present so as to be able to floor personally the arguments ased by somo of the speakers. The intrigues Sieged to exist between the Republic and Ger- Inany were nothing but bubbles. The Republic, _dded the President, wanted to be friends with 611. but the recent plot was indefensible, and those who engineered it must be punished. There I would be no rest for South Africa till this was I done. 8REAT BRITAIN AND THE TRANSVAAL. I Reeling in Cape Colony; Sympathy with I Mr Rhodes. CAM TOWN, Monday Night.—Mr Chamber- fein's recent speech in Parliament, in which he Patd a. tribute to the services rendered by Mr Rhodes to the Empire, has caused lively satisfac- tion here.

He had complained mncb of late of the attitude adopted towards him by his superiors. In the Cape House of Assembly uotioe was given bo-day of an intezition to question the Govern- ment as to whether telegrams despatched within the limits of Cape Colony were supplied to the Executive of the Transvaal in order to facilitate the prosecution of the Reform leaders.
