§ SIR STAFFORD NORTHCOTE
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether any result has yet been obtained from the communications addressed to the President of the Orange Free State with reference to the murder of Dr. Barber, and what course the Government are pursuing in order to obtain compensation for that gentleman's family?
§ SIR CHARLES W. DILKE
The documents referred to were laid on the Table yesterday. A telegram was sent to Sir Hercules Robinson yesterday, desiring him to urge upon the Boer leaders that compensation should be given to the orphan children of Dr. Barber.
