CAPPE TOWN. June 27. (Special.)
A native deputation is leaving today
- for England to present a series of
grievances to the Imperial Government.
' The deputation includes the Rev. Dr.
Dube, a highly educated Zulu, who
studied for a number of years in
American universities; the. Rev. Dr.
Rabusana, .' late member of the Cape
Provincial Council, and representatives
of the Free State and the Transvaal.
On being: asked why they thought it
necessary to appeal to the Imperial
- factor, they said that there is very
grave dissatisfaction with tne manage
ment of native affairs by the Union
Government of South Africa. The land
. act has brought matters to a head.
This measure is not yet fully opera
tive, but the farmers are taking ad
vantage of it to injure the natives.
Thousands of native squatters, .more
. particularly in Pvatal, are receiving no
tice to quit, and have nowhere to go.
Many have sold their stock at ruinous
prices, and from tenant farmers have
sunk to the position of laborers, earn
ing 2.50 to- 13.75 monthly, with a few
mealies thrown in.
Natives Are Badly Treated.
The deputation bitterly complains
that the present unfortunate situation
might have been foreseen if the gov
ernment had been in better touch with
native opinion. The Native Affairs De
partment is doing its best to mitigate
' the hardship, but the fact remains that
the natives are driven off lands re.
served for future European occupation
. before other lands have been ear.
marked for exclusively native occupa
tion. The deputation will request the Im
perial Government to exercise Its right
and veto the native land bill. That,
however, is only one phase of the mis
sion of the deputation, which repre
sents an immense body of natives.
They Intend laying other grievances
before the Imperial Government,
notably the alleged failure of the
Union authorities to make an adequate
Inquiry Into tbe killing of two natives
by the defense force during tha Janu
ary disturbances, and the circum
stances connected with the recent
emeute at Jagersfontein mine. .Their
object la to convince tbe Imperial Gov
ernment that tbe latter has no right,
having due regard to native interests,
to hand over the protectorates of Basu
toland, Bechuanaland and Swaziland
to the Union Government, at all events
wftbout exacting the most rigorous
Cape Town Surprised at Act,
The dispatch of this deputation to
England comes as a surprise to the
public here, who have heard' practi
cally nothing of these grievances. The
action now being taken serves as a re
minder, that the time is probably not
far distant when the colored people
auJ natives wil) begin actively to agi
tate. Speaking in the House of Assembly,
Mr. JJeyler, one of the Natal members,
said that the natives and colored folk
were beginning to think they ought to
exist for themselves. Denied the fran
chise, they would resort to direct
action, organizing themselves into in
dustrial combinations. Mr. Meyler pro
tested that he was not putting such
Ideas into the natives' heads. From
his intercourse with their leaders he
was convinced that the ideas were
there already. This speech has caused
some sensation among the members.

the keenest competition is taking place

A prominent importer said recently
that the position was exceedingly ser
