OREGON CITY COURIER-HERALD. rrPKl'AKY 2, 1000.
The English Side.
S a constant reader and supporter
of the Courier-Herald, I have
read its pro-Boer sentiments
with feelings of disappointment. Only
withia the last three issues we find the
Boers represented as he upholders of
sacred liberty and freedom and England
as waging war in defiance of liberty and
jiatice. ICiiji'aiid is charged with re
cruiting her armies of criminal, vaya
boida and hinalinB, bv starving the
cuildreti ct the poor, and concluding in
yonr last issue with an abominable quo
tation from George's Weekly, Bt only to
adorn the pat-ee of the most abandoned
anarchist paper of the land, but as you
quid) without adverse comment, and aa
sileuce gives consent, it thus receives
the tacit approval of the Courier
It is no' agreeable for Britifh sympa
thizers to be told that "the hand of des
tiny is against the cause of Johnny
Bull ;" that "England hasn't a fiiend on
eirthj" that ''repudiation is the light
the average w.tinn sees;" "all seem to
realize that with the fall of Great Britain
will come the wiping out of debts;
"nothing will please the nations better
than to see England whipped to a stand
still and wiped off the face of the earth,"
etc., ad lib. . '
SupposelTie people of Hawaii in a few
years decide they have had enough of
America, organize a rebellion and tell
us to get. Would we get? Did we get
o it of the South when told to trek in
1861? No; but Britain did. She en
tered the Transvaal at the solicitation of
the Boers, loaned them money to pay up
their debis ($5,000,000), over half of
which is still owing, fought off the Kaf
firs and Zulus for them, and in a few
years, when all danger was over, Kruger
raised a rebellion and told them to trek,
and Gladstone, in the interests of peace,
restored them to independence, subject
to suzerainty, the conditions of which
"vere settled by a commission in 1884.
How the Transvaal has abused the
privilege thus granted is known to all
intelligent readers. She has proved
herself incapable of self government by
denying its concomitants state rights
and a fair franchise. England's blood
and treasure have been constantly in.
voked In adjusting grievances thus cre
ated by the most tvrannical oligaichy of
modern times, which appeals to the
sentiment of ignorant citizens only
through its falsely assumed appellation
of a republic.
We have generally considered a man
dishonest who did notexhaustall human
means of paying his debts, aud as there
is no difference in principle between
paying debts in Europe and debts at
Lome, you are really advocating that
your creditors should leave you in the
The fact that as a nation we are pay
ing all our bonded indebtedness in a
currency two and one-half times as dear
as the currency iu which it was con
tracted, is no fault of the British, but of
our so-called experts who have manipu
lated our finances in the interest of the
creditor class. To denounce the British
as usurous grabbers while we deliber
ately more than double our own indebt
edness to them by our fiscal pol icy is
childishness indeed; but to pray for
their downfall that we may repudiate
our indbtedness to them is a disgrace to
respectable journalism and the people
who patronize the journal. There is
only one influence or power that could
thus subordinate a naturally honest peo
ple into enduring the promulgation of
such ' dishonorable and . detestable
Macchivellisin, and they will not long
stand it. To this power the British do
not truckle and have consequently
earned its eternal hatred. A power
which wains its emoluments and influ
ence through keeping its voters as far
as possible in ignorance aud superstition
and then working on tluir fears to ob
tain their wealth, which is largely used
to subsidize the press.
Though the Boers have always treated
the Catholics with the greatett con
tutnely, yet Kruger's acumen fw cog
nizant of its power in this country, and
he presented the pupa in 1831 with a
$2,003,0 )0 diamond, which U no doubt
the reason for all the abuse an J bpprobri-
ora of a vitiated press being heaped on a
sister nation that hat shown to ui a
special and helpful friendship in our for
eign relations and difficulties. No doubj;
Kruger was led to expect more than
bluster probably a civil war in Ireland
that should leave the British witb their
hanls full at hone; but this has failed,
and the abuse and bluster will recoil on
its promoters. While thiutanlt of
British sympathizers would stand with
the reform element to correct the great
financial blunders of the century along
lines th it ara honorable an 1 truttwo
thy, yet we must raise our voice against
truckling to a hierarchy that is a puuti
cal factor, sells its support to the highest
bidder, knows nothing of principle or
honor, but pnstitutes its moat sacred
offices to coercing in a Iherents into a
harmonious unit for a political-cull.
In the interests of many of your read
ers who thiuk tint former grudge
against am-i-nt Britain as a kingly
power shiuld give place to a friendly
feeling, if not a grateful feeling, for re
cent acts of courtesy shown t at in
timet of difficult; aai perplexity by a
modern, full-franchised Britain, I would
appeal to you for a more dignified and
truthful presentation of this subject.
