• Lord Selborne's Welcome. Per Press Association — By Rkctnc Telegraph.—Copyright. Capetown, May 17. Lord Selborne was cordially welcomed. In replying to the Mayor of Capetown he created a most favourable impression, saying he drew encouragement from the example of his predecessors. He declared he remembered the far-seeing imagination of Jan Van Riebeeck, the founder of CapeI town, and Cecil Rhodes, the sagacious statesmanship of President Brand, and I Lord Milner's indomitable courage. With | the help of men truly desiring tbe peace, I prosperity, and progress of South Africa, he would not shirk the share in their common task which the Sovereign entrusted to him. General Louis Botha addressed a meeting of fifteen hundred members of the Het Volk at Johannesburg. He declared that the Boers would show Lord Selborne that they loved order, and would co-operate with him.
