TJnlQue Is the career of General Henry Ronald Maclver, now in Chicago,
and who, says the Chicago Tribune, la planning the organization of an army
of Americans to fight in the British ranks against the Boers. Maclver has
fought under 14 flags.' HIa "sword has been drawn in Europe, North Amer
ica, Central America, South. Arrierica and Asia. He has. fought scores of
duels, and has undergorte all kinds of peril by sea and land. Today he is as
hearty -and vigorous as ever, and a score of scars are the only traces of his
many narrow escapes from death.
Maclver was a mere, .boy when he began to fight with 'his sword. His first
duty was as an ensign In' India, at the time of the Sepoy rebellion. During
the latter days of Italy's struggles for independence he served as a lieuten
ant under Garibaldi. For four years he fought in the Confederate army,
holding the rank of jnajor when it disbanded. When Maximilian was shot,
Maclver was a colonel in the Mexican emperor's army. During the war
of Brazil and Argentina against Paraguay, Maclver served as a colonel un
der the flags of first one and then the other of the allies. One of the Cretan
revolutions found him in command of the cavalry of that island, which did
good service against the Turks. 'His sword was drawn as lieutenant-colonel
in Greece against the urigands on the frontier, who harassed the young
kingdom. The revolution before the last in Cuba found him in command o
the Cuban cavalry. He was enrolled in Egxpt as colonel and inspector-gen-eral
of cavalry, when the khedlve looked for w(ar with Turkey. The last days
of the Franco -Prussian war found him fighting under theflag of Napoleon
III. When Don Carlos attempted to seize the throne of Spain by force, Mac
lver commanded one of his regiments of cavalry. The Bosnians and Herze
govinlans" rnade use of his sword in their revolution against Turkey in the
Russo-Turkish war, and finally he became major-general and chief of the
Servian cavalry under King Milan and Queen Natalie,
No one would imagine from his appearance that so young a looking man
could have taken part in ,so many battles. . His hair has been turned gray by
his life of adventure, but he is as active and energetic as a boy, and looks
every inch a soldier, with his tall, erect form, broad shoulders, closely
cropped hair and military mustache and Imperial. The scars of wounds tell
the story of his many battles, for wherever he fought he was in the thick of
It A saber cut has left its mark on his scalp. Nearly every part of his per
son contains bullet wounds. Portions of several of his ribs are missing, and
a scar in his mouth and another in the back, of his neck mark the course of
General Maciver was born in American waters off the "Virginia coast, and
of American parents. When he was 11 years old h was sent to his Uncle,
Donald Graham, in Scotland. This uncle was a retired general officer, who
drilled him severely and taught him the rudiments of military education.
It was intended that when old enough he should secure an appointment to
West Point but when the time came Maclver was anxious to see real fighting
at once, and friends of his family succeeded In securing him an appointment
as ensign in the East India service of the Sepoys. This was at the time of
the mutiny, ana the ydung man was an eye-witness of many of the frightful
atrocities committed by the natives.
