5 Mr. Webster Dayis' Book 5
THI S- work-is the outcome of a visit to the Transvaal, made by Mr. &
J Webster Davis while he was Assistant Secretary of the Interior,
J under Mr. McKinloy's first administration, and as the result of &
tf which ho broke his relations with the Republican party and af- &
'J filiated himself with the opposition. The author vehemently ar- &
' raigns tho British government for the Transvaal war. Whether &
J the reader agrees with the author or not, he will be interested in &
fl his presentation of tho Boer side of the case. Milton said that &
J truth could not suffer so long as she was left free to combat error. &
John Bull's Crime,
Assaults on Republics
"Striko, but hear," ia a familiar saying. Nd one knows his own side
of the case until he also knows the other side.
For all these reasons, no matter what opinion the reader may
have formed of the South African war, he will be the gainer from'
a reading of this book.
The illustrations are worth alone more than the price of the
work. They were all taken on the spot, either by Mr. Davis or
by some of his friends, and they certainly form a unique collection
of South African pictures. They are in all styles, from "grave to
gay, from lively to severe," and they have been faithfully .and
exquisitely reproduced in half-tone. Cloth, large octavo (6x9), 400
pages altogether, printed on coated paper, beautifully illustrated
by over eighty full-page half-tones, attractively bburid. Two dol
lars; carriage prepaid.
