STATEMENT BY POUTSMA.

LONDON, February 25. . I'outsma states that he was deported because. he would .have won General .Smuts's seat, Pretoria East, at the gpaeral election. He denies that he attempted to form a Labour Republic. The passengers by the Umgeni state that the deported men were very cheer- ■ ful on the voyage. The captain treated them with the utmost courtesy. They had the best of food, and entered heartily into dock games. They frequently sang militant songs, marching the decks until late at night. They appeared to be well ,_ supplied with

money. The "Daily Chronicle" says that the landing of the deported men was badly stage-managed. Anything impressive was-drowned in the farco or tke rush of eminent Labour loaders to Oravesend. It was_ not dignified of ft® deported men to' strike a heroic attitude and then climb down in order ■-im partake of the' fatted calves. It was an unrehearsed absurdity, but nevertheless the problem is serious.
