NOTES ON THE WAR.

[By as Ex-member of the Intelligence

Branch, South Afbica.]

LORD METHUEN'S PROTEST.

Lord Methuen's protest to the Commandant of the enemy a forces, at Belmont, against the use of the dum dam bullets, and the employment of the white flag as a decoy, comes none too soon, bub it will have little effect on the future use of either by the Boers. Unless retribution shall be meted out to all parties of the enemy that may be captured after the commission of an. offence of the nature complained at, protests are of Httle use in such cases, when; dealing with such people, for although the Orange Free State ana the Transvaal have both subscribed to the terms of the Geneva. Convention, the troops of both are prepared to fire on the Geneva liag at any time, .if there is a possibility of 'hitting a rooi ' battjee (British soldier), consequently, it is as useless io protest to the Boers as it would be to a North American Indian, or as it was to the mutineers of Indda in. 1857, but notify the Boer that after the war. they will be tielu responsible for every act of treachery committed by their commandos, and complaints will be unnecessary in future.
