Mr. Reddy said that the manager of the factory
had approached the pressers, and asked them to stand
by the firm in the present difficulty. The men had
been told that if they continued to work their wages
would be raised if any loss occurred to them owing
to the irregularity of employment brought about by

inevitiable sequel. He has had to go. As he
would not resign his command voluntarily, he
has been superseded. I have just seen a colonial
officer who shares the opinion of the Agent-
General for Natal that Buller was the man who
" saved South Africa " and who has been down
to Aldershot to see for himself how things were
going on. He brings back the report that
everybody is " mad " at what has occurred except
the General himself. It is curious to note, by the
way, how many colonials there are who have seen
service in South Africa who either from personal
experience or from what they have learnt from
others have come to share in that sentiment
which enabled Buller, even in the blackest days
during the campaign, to keep his hold on the
affections of the men serving under him. I
remember seeing a letter written to a well-known
Australian here by his son not so very long after
the Spion Kop disaster in which he spoke of
Buller as a " superb " leader of men. How-
ever, this widespread feeling has not sufficed to
save him from the effects of his own indiscretion
and Lord Roberts's ideas as to discipline. Still,
it is doubtful whether we have heard the last of
this deplorable business yet. Sir Redvers Buller's
friends hint broadly that they can if they will
throw some fresh light on the supposed intrigues
which led to his dismissal, and if the General does
not act himself they intend to act for him. We
shall see.
