§ MR. MARKHAM
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies will he say if before or since the war Kaffirs have been employed as overseers in the Transvaal gold mines.
§ MR. LYTTELTON
My information is that Kaffirs have not been overseers in the Transvaal mines either before or after the war. But I find in the Blue-books some expressions which lead me to infer that on some occasions, at any rate. Kaffirs have held positions involving some authority over their fellows.
