The London Dally Chronicle lias pub

Schrelner, who advocates peace over

'I am convinced that if the two re

the Transvaal would grant a five year
retrospective franchise, tho burghers
would retire to tlielrown countries and
the war would cease immediately."
These views, coming from n kins
man of W. I'. Schrelner, the Capo
premier, will probably excite much
comment. Mr. Conwright-Sohroluer
points out that tlie Dutch outnumber
the English colonists, and that if local
self-government continue to exist it
