failed and slowly the truth is becoming known It is boldly asserted in well informed circles that Lord Milner was guilty of i bare-faced misrule and that corruption! under Kruger was amateurish compared j with the epidemic by the former lordj high commander It is rumored that a Dr Rowan a Victorian medical practitioner who has recently returned from Johannesburg te! Melbourne is preparing a long statement I in which Lord-Milner' s methods are not! only condemned but-exposed So far as can be learned from those whom he has taken into his confidence Dr Rowan intends to furnish proof that hundreds of men and firms who had come to South i Africa intending to do honest business have been driven out by the governor's policy which feIlowing the lines indi- cated by Lord Milner has been one of i intimitlation oppression and extortion I There is no doubt that the matter will t ultimately be considered by parliament Lord Milner's resignation was by no means a voluntary act but he wi- forced out by the collapse of his stupendous statements of selfish aggrandizement On account of the growth of its wholesale business THE OK SWKETS has found it necessary to discontinue either its wholesale or retail department To the necessity of this step many of our customers can testify who from day to day have called and found us out of the goods they wanted We have trefore decided to discontinue the whedesale department and to give our entire time and attention toa bigger variety of better goods for those who call at the store Come in and look over our goods before purchasing n o f Original ALLEGRETTI Famous A LAUNCH SINKS BEAFMOXT TEX Oct 15— A smaiL launch belonging to the French Market!
