During the past few days we have talked exclusively on Men's and Boys' Clothing, and an exceptionally fino lino of

San Francisco Call.
The schooner Vine returned to port
yesterday, after an absence of six
months in Siberia and Japan. The
greater part of the time she was on the
Amoor river, only stopping at Hako
date on the way home to secure a car
go of sulphur.
The Vine left here in April last for
Nlcolaefskl with a general cargo and
had a good run across the Pacific. She
as detained some time on the Amoor
river discharging her cargo, and then
went to Hakodate in ballast to load
eulphur for San Francisco.

something like Port Townsend." said
Captain Small yesterday. "There are

Is covered with low forest clad moun

This Is no 'fish story', as I am telling

It Is usual, I know, for military men
to sneer at the generalship, or want
of It, which, as they allege, was respon.
slble for the Majuba disaster these
critics are wise after the event. It Is
forgotten that the Boers met other of
ficers than" General Colly at Bronkhorst
Spruit In a number of fight about
Pretoria, Potehentrjom and other vil
lages, and that In no case were our
men and military leaders able to stand
up to the enemy. At Durban, In Natal,
in 1S48, we got the worst of it, as we
did at Doornkop, where English officers
of the ordinary type commanded. The
only military success which English
olflcers can claim In a good many en
counters with-the Boers is the battle
of Eoomplaats, fought in 1848 between
artillery and flintlock guns. It Is,
therefore; nonsense to take, refuge be
hind the lack of generalship of our lead
era. If such factors as courage and
leadership do not come Into the con
troversy, except to a very limited ex
tent, in what direction must we look
for the explanation of our defeats?
At Lang's Nek the action began by
our guns dropping a few shells into the
Boer lines, and, is admitted by the
