LORD KITCHENER'S MESSAGE TO SOUTH AFRICA.
As the result of,tho visit of Colonel Sir Aubrey Woolls-Sampson and Major Pickburn, who have just concluded a special mission to England in regard to South African participation in tho war, Lord Kitchener (says 'South Africa') has sent the following telegram to General Botha as a message to all South Africans: Woolls-Sampson has asked me what ho can do to help the cause and the Empire, and how South Africans can do most. I said that in my view every man in the Union ought to go at onco for the Germans in South-west Africa, and sec that matter through properly. After this is completed I will see that those who have fought there—Afrikander and Briton—3hall bo represented here if the war is still in progress, and I hope that all will serve the Empire loyally. If you care to publish this expression of my opinion as being likely in. any way to help you—and that is its only object—please do so. On my advice, Woolls-Sampson is going back to South, i A|rfc& fit pacg,—iEaxeppMEß*
