STRIVING TO PROVOKE
WAR WITH ENGLAND
The Outrageous Course of Nationalist and
Jew-Eaiting Press of France.
Boers Exhorted to Sboot Straight and Wipe Out the English officers-Frenchmen
Advised to Join the Boers and Drive
England Ont of Africa-.
NEW YORK. Nov. S. The Tribune"
Pari correspondent wrltx
The Anglophobia epi.lemlc raging in
the French press la dally becoming
The Nationalists, Jew baltlnf. and
clerical press the same papers that
constituted themselves champions of
the general staff during the Dreyfus
affair are straining every nerve so as
to steer public opinion as to arrive at
,war with England.
In reading the Patrle and the Croix,
one might suppose that France and
England were already at war. The
editorial language and epithets are now
more violent than anything that ap
peared in either the American or Span
ish newspapers during the Spanish war
and probably exo?ed In malignity and
abuse all past achievements of the
French press in criticising the conduct
of a nation with which France Is at
Too much weight should not be at
tached to their frantic ravings, hut It
is impossible to gnage correctly the
trend of national feeling hi France
without taking- Into consideration the
stormy elements 'vhich are constantly
at work and which like the Boutgan
ism of the last decade, adroitly enlist
and concentrate all the floating units
of discontent. One or two passages
taken at random from the Patrle may
enable observing Americans to form
an Idea of the forsign policy the Na
tionalists are urging upon the govern
ment. Help the Boers and avenge Fashoda
is the advice given by H. Millevoye,
who declares that: "The British for
eign office has deliberately falnified all
the dispatches from the seat of war
where, in spite of all official accounts,
matters are going very badly for Eng
land. Thousands of Frenchmen are burning
to Join the Boers and fight againot
England. We don't care at present to
furnish further details, because we
still have hopes that we may be able
to send to the South African Boe-is
more substantial aid than mere good
wishes. Ah! brave Boers, don't wane
your cartridges. Aim carefully and
hit the officers. England should be
made to suffer and expiate.
British hatred has never yet missed
an opportunity to strike at French
Vregfts. Examples of such Brltlfh bru
tality abound ev.Tyhere. An English
man dreswed In a suit of smart velvet
and knickerbockers was taken In 1ST")
near Boug'-val, where he used to amuse
himself hy killing our outposts with
shots fri.ni his Snyder carbin:-. In Tu
nis and Madagascar hardy British ad
venturers and officers of Queen Victoria
made up shooting pa:'t.-s on purpose
to kill Frenchmen. The hour of retal
iation has arrived. The shooting sea
son when Fie.nchm.-n may kill Eng-'
lishmen is now op'-n. Notice is hereby
givn to amateurs. Is n"t this ppe.-l a
mo3t tempting one? j
Charles Laurent, In a leading article
in the Matin, intimates 'hat the bat-',
ties of Glencoe and Eland's Laagto arej
In reality vk'.ori-s for the Boers. M. j
Laurent writes: j
' In spite of illusions and notwith- J
standing the mercenary enthusiasm of j
the stock exchange and the bourse, the
present campaign marks the rnd of
England. By this, I do not mean that
thre will be war In the county of
Kent, or that an Invading army will
encamp In Hyde Park and levy taxes
on the city merchants. But it is the
emd of greater England. British arms
can never subjugate the Transvaal.
The courage of the Boers to conta
gious. It will spread to Ireland, to In
dia, to Australia. Justice will finally
triumph on the other side of the equa-
tor, and the reign of Queen Victoria
will terminate in the bleeding fog bank
of defeat. '
Insultinc caricatures and cuts of
Queen Victoria appear In the boule
vard newspapers, accompanied by 11
belous and Indecent legends. The Pa
trie publishes almost every day ex
tracts from allegjd conversations with
Mr. Chamberlain, who Is represented
as declaring that "it Is the policy of
the British cabinet to suppress the
Dutch In Souta Africa and afterward
the French In Canada and Mauritus.'
In the same issue the Patrle an
nounces the Im poling mobilization of
the BrVttan leet as a threat to France
and Russia. The Petri also publishes
a series of articles on political economy,
with the object of showing that Brit
ish supremacy In South Africa will
mean the "ruin of all commerce and
industry except that of the gold mines
which will henceforth become British
The Petit Journal and the Croix, with
its herd of subsidiary Croix throughout
the provinc's, are also preaching a
crusade against England, and Ignore
facts with the same complacency that
they did during the Dreyfus campaign.
M. MilV?voye, Judet and Drumont made
up their minds thit the outbreak of
hostilities would be marked with vic
tories of the Boers. News of the bat
tles of Gleticoe and Eland's Laagto has
not altered the preconcleved notions of
these stormy petrels of France.
The violence of the Irrepressible na
tionalist press causes no little uneasi
ness at the Qual d'Orsay, and also
among Frenchmen of evenly balanced
minds, who fear lest retribution may
come In a shape which may affect the
exhibition of 1900 and Injure the pock
ets of French tradesmen. M. Yves
Guiot has the course to point out In
the Slecle that there are two sides to
the Transvaal question, and that John
Bull is. after all, France's best cus
tomer. The Figaro Is beginning to take
the same grounds.

Instructions were seot several days
ago to General Brooke, comnuuidliig

advisability of withdrawing troops.

DR. LEYDS AGAIN.

at a Price to Astound the World.
PARIS, Nov. 9. The morning papers
have long accounts of an Interview
with Dr. Leyds, the special representa
tive In Europe of the Transvaal gov
ernment, who argues that the Trans
vaal has everything to gain by re
maining Independent, and that her
mining laws are the rmxrt liberal in
the world and prevent capitalists from
In course of his remarks, Dr. Ledys
repeats President Kruger's assertion
that If the republics must eventual!)
belong to England, the latter will pay
a pries for them which will astound
The war, to which the Transvaal has
been forced, Dr. Leyds asserts, has
demonatrated to the whole world the
courags and chivalry of this little peo
pie, which even their enemies do not
hesitate to recognize.
