Excerpt from The Empire Review, 1906, Vol. 12 The Ministerial statement on the new Constitutions promised by the Liberal Government to the Transvaal and Orange River Colony may be expected at any moment. Indeed, I have reason to believe that the Prime Minister intends, if possible, to make his pronouncement before the month of July closes. That it will be framed on the Report of the Ridgeway Commission is by no means certain, but as the Commission was sent out to Obtain information for the Government it may be assumed that the Cabinet will very carefully consider what the Commissioners have to say. In that lies the hope of the British party in South Africa. It is no part Of my purpose to try and anticipate, even if I were in a position to do so, the terms of the Ministerial statement, but it must be patent to all that on the decision of the Cabinet rests the future prosperity or decadence of the new Colonies, while the consequences of their judgment involve the still more vital question of British supremacy in South Africa. It will be remembered, although a certain class of people seem to have forgotten the fact, it was to secure this supremacy that the blood of the Empire was shed without stint and the treasury of the Motherland pledged to a payment Of In these circumstances is it surprising that the conclusions of His Majesty's Ministers are being awaited with intense anxiety both by Britons at home and by those of our race domiciled in the King's Dominions oversea?
