Ho represented the irregular forces at King Edward's Coronation, and then returned to South Africa.; where he joined the police. He afterwards worked in the mines for five years. He holds the Royal Humane Society's award for rescuing a comrade from drowning in a swollen river. He was more than once arrested in the July strike., ft wife and four children sold up the home, and were living with friends. Before his deportation he asked to be sent to Australia, and intends to press General Botha to send him there.
Possibly others of those deported will go there if not regarded as ixndesirables. ■ \.
