Best to Avert War.
Declares Chamberlain Was Cecil
Rhodes' Accomplice In the Jameson
Raid , and That Mllner Acted aa
Tool of Colonial Secretary.
London , Oct. 30. It is understood
that the "Krugor Memoirs , " of which
a first installment of extracts has al
ready been published in the Times ,
glvo a narrative of the ex-president's
career , but do not go deeply into pollt
leal or diplomatic aspects , or advise
the Boers as to the best policy to bo
pursued after Mr Kruger's death. A
striking feature of the memoirs Is a
revelation of the Jealousies which ex
isted before the war between inhabi
tants of the Transvaal and the Orange
Free State and the Cap Colony Boers ,
which prevented anything llko a satis
factory mutual understanding. Mr.
Kruger takes pains to explain that ho
did his best to smooth matters over
and prevent the war but the Boers'
inborn nnt.pathy to foreign Interfer
ence proved to bo too strong for him.
Mr. Kruger declares that Colonial
Secretary Chamberlain was undoubt
edly the late Cecil Rhodes' accom
plice in the Jameson raid , and that
Mr. Chamberlain appointed Lord Mil
ncr British high commissioner of
South Africa with the direct intention
of driving matters to extremes.
"This tool of Mr Chamberlain , " saya
) Mr. Kruger , "carried out his mission
faithfully and turned South Africa
Into a wilderness. "
British policy in general , the former
president sums up. in the following
sentence : "Lies , treachery , intrigues ,
and secret investigations against the
governments of the republics , these
have always been the distinguishing
marks of English politics. "
Mr. Krugor closes his memoirs with
those words : "I am convinced that
the lord will not forsake his people ,
oven although it often appears so , and
I acquiesce in the will of the lord ,
Icnowlnjj ho will not allow an afflicted
people to perish. "
