LONDON. Feb. It. This metropolis be
stowed Its highest distinction on Joseph
Chamberlain, tbe colonial aecrelary, today,
when, at Oulld hall. It conferred on him th
freedom of the city In a gold casket. Mr.
Chamberlain accompanied her husband and
they war greeted oa their arrival with a
fanfare of trumpet. Mr. and Mra. Cham
berlain were conducted to th library, where
they were received by the lord mayor. Sir
Joseph C. Dlmadale, and the lady mayoress.
The hall wss crowded, among those present
being Mr. Cbamberlaln's political colleague
and adherenta, who duly applauded the be
stowal of tha ctty'a freedom. Tbe addreia
In connection with th preaentatlon con
gratulated Mr. Chamberlain on tbe services
be bed rendered to tbe empire during the
last twenty-five year, dwelling specially
on the way he baa welded tbe colonlea to
gether. In replying Mr. Chamberlain disclaimed
any intention of making political capital
out of th occasion, but he aald he thought
he might. In behalf .of th government,
make an appeal for national support. Tbe
government bad two great national objects
la view to establish beyond question Brit
ish authority in South Africa nd to main
tain tbe unity of tb empire. Both object
were Involved in the South African war.
The war would alway be memorable, be
cause It had called out a greater military
effort than ever before asked from Oreat
Britain, and because It had shown to friend
and foe the potential strength and Inex
haustible resource 'of the empire. He
had not thought It necessary to stoop to
meet the Imputations of national greed,
lust or personal ambition and motlvea sug
gested by tbe Insignificant minority, alnee
the war bad the approval of alster nation
acroaa tb seas.
Eneplr Wa at Stake.
In regard to tb Immediate cause of th
war, aald Mr. Chamberlain, It waa not only
Impossible for a great nation to allow It
subjects to be humiliated, or oppressed. Its
engagements broken, and black racee op
pressed, but the very existence of the em
pire was Involved and the government was
pledged to continue It until the danger from
which they had escaped was forever
After a reference to "Shallow observer
abroad, who foretold Great Britain' down
fall," Mr. Chamberlain concluded with a
greet, glowing tribute to tbe colonlea, who,
throughout th war, he aald, had demon
atratad their determination to ahare tho
obligation a well a tb privilege of th
empire. It waa a long step toward
th .consolidation, which was now
within a measure of practical ' accom
plishment. He did not envy the states
man who would ba willing to eompromlsu
ths issue for which th empire fought. The
nation wa not vindictive to it cnemle.
If they surrendered today they would be
welcomed ss friends tomorrow. The ex
pulsion of thoae who caused the war waa
only a meaaure of elf-preaervatlon. Simi
larly, immunity for treaaon waa not hu
manity, but waa cruelty to tbe loyaliata
and to tbe Boer who now. In thousands,
recognising th futility of th struggle,
were aiding Crest Britain to end' the. war.
In .justice to those who fad died, and as
security for ths survivors, tbe Boers must
be made to rscognli tbat they ar de.

During th business seeeloo It wa da-
elded that a full length Stuart picture ot
Washington b placed in tbe children's da-
partmlnt of the Public library on February
12. Regarding th placing of a statue In
th children' department the women unan-
Imoualy voted 1100 for that purpoae. It
wa at first considered wisest to raise the
amount by th contribution of f 1 by aaoh
member, wntcn would be mor tnan sum-
cient, but th woman finally decided to
