How Did Canada Get Into the Boer War?

...For decades before 1899, the Dutch settlers of South Africa (known as Boers or Afrikaners) had fought for an independent homeland. The British colonial officials in the Cape Colony and the Natal struggled mightily to subdue the Boers, but had to settle for a policy of mutual forbearance.

All this changed when gold (the oil of the 19th century) was discovered in South Africa in 1886 ... The British put increasing pressure on the Afrikaners until war broke out in October 1899.

As fighting started in South Africa, the British turned to their colonies for aid ... Sir Wilfred Laurier, the popular Liberal prime minister of Canada, faced a dilemma ... His anti-war sentiments echoed those of his French Canadian compatriots, many of whom regarded the war as an unnecessary imperialist adventure and sympathized with the nationalist aspirations of the Afrikaners. In 1900, students in Montreal clashed with police in a violent anti-British riot.

In English Canada, sympathies ran strongly the other way. Such Canadian militarists as Montreal Star publisher Hugh Graham argued that Britain was our largest trading partner and closest ally, therefore deserving of our support. Abandoning Britain in its moment of need would be an act of gross disloyalty, according to the pro-Empire press.

Torn between English and French Canada, surrounded by the din of loud voices for and against the war, Laurier hit upon a master stroke. On October 18, 1899, Laurier announced that "in view of the well-known desire of a great many Canadians who are ready to take service" on behalf of the Empire, he would support the creation of a volunteer force. The Canadian government would equip and transport any volunteers eager to fight the Boers, but once in South Africa, they would be the responsibility of the British government.

Laurier also encouraged private individuals to help defer the costs of the Canadian unit. This request was taken up by Lord Strathcona, the High Commissioner in London, who paid out of his own pocket for a unit of mounted rifles.

In all, more than 7,000 Canadians signed up as volunteers to fight in the Boer War. Fighting under British commanders, they served with great distinction and won praise from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes and a chronicler of the war. "Smith-Dorrien's Nineteenth Brigade, comprising the Shropshires, the Cornwalls, the Gordons and the Canadians, [was] probably the very finest brigade in the whole army," Doyle wrote...

The Great Boer War, by Arthur Conan Doyle, was published in 1902 by Smith, Elder & Company, London, England, and went through at least sixteen editions. The complete text is available online at numerous sites, some of which are linked below. In the Preface to the First Edition, Doyle wrote: "This book was begun in England and continued on board a steamer [steam ship], but the greater part was written in a hospital tent in the intervals during the epidemic at Bloemfontein..."

Comment by J. Walker McSpadden, Project Gutenberg's e-text editor:
It may come as a surprise that the creator of Sherlock Holmes wrote a history of the Boer War. The then 40-year-old novelist wanted to see the war first hand as a soldier, but the Victorian army balked at having the popular author wielding a pen in its ranks. The army did accept him as a doctor and Doyle was knighted in 1902 for his work with a field hospital in Bloemfontein. Doyle's vivid description of the battles are probably thanks to the eye-witness accounts he got from his patients. This, the best book on the Boer War I've encountered, is a long out of print lost classic that I stumbled across in a Cape Town second-hand bookstore.

The Brock memorial
Brockville and District Historical Society, Ontario
Daughters of the Empire have ordered a handsome bust of
General Brock From Mr. Hamilton McCarthy, a famous sculptor.
After seven years of unceasing efforts upon the part of all the
members, General Brock Chapter, Daughters of the Empire, has
at last found itself in the gratifying position of being able to give the
order for the erection of a handsome memorial fountain in Brockville
of Sir Isaac Brock, after whom the town is named. The order has
been given to Mr. Hamilton McCarthy, R.C.A., of Ottawa, the eminent
Canadian sculptor, and the memorial will consist of a fountain made
of marble and granite surmounted by a bronze bust of General
Brock. It is expected that the monument will be placed on Court
House Square at the head of Court House Avenue, and that the
unveiling of the statue will take place next October upon the 100th
anniversary of the heroic death of General Brock at Queenston
Heights.

Sir John Macdonald in Bronze
Excellent Likeness of Canada's Old Premier
Cast in a New York Foundry
A bronze statue of heroic size, to be placed in a public
square of Toronto, Canada, was exhibited yesterday by
the Henri-Bonnard Bronze Company, at the foundry in
West Sixteenth Street... It is a likeness of the late
Premier of Canada, Sir John Macdonald K.C.B...
He was known to many in Washington, New York, and
Boston, and such of his friends who called yesterday
expressed themselves satisfied with the likeness.
The sculptor is a young artist of Toronto,
Hamilton MacCarthy, who passed several years
in Paris studying sculpture... The statue as a whole is
very creditable to Mr. MacCarthy, and will be sure
to win him other orders in Canada...

Henry-Bonnard Bronze Company
New York

So well can Senator W.A. Clark of Montana keep a secret that it was
not until yesterday that the news got out that for nearly four years
he has been the principal stockholder and practical owner of the
Henry-Bonnard Bronze Company of this city, which is the foremost
concern of its kind in this country and one of the foremost in the world...
The foundry has become one of his pet hobbies, and at present his
ambition is to make the undertaking the finest and biggest in the world.
The Henry-Bonnard Company is the only concern anywhere capable of
molding a life-size statue in a single piece, and, within a very short time,
another step will be taken that will place the company still further ahead
of its European rivals.  Preparations are now going on in the foundry for
the molding of a equestrian statue in a single piece – the first venture of
its kind ever attempted...

The Henry-Bonnard Company was formed in 1872 by two Frenchmen,
P.A. Bonnard and E. Henry, who began very modestly in a small house
in Wooster Street.  Its first chance came when William H. Vanderbilt
planned his Fifth Avenue residence with a view to making it the finest
in the country at that time.  Christian Herter of Herter Brothers started
Henry and Bonnard in a new place in Mercer Street, and furnished
capital, which enabled them not only to do the work for the Vanderbilt
mansion, but also to undertake the molding of the first statues ever
made in this country.  Until then the sculptors had to send their
models to Europe to have them molded.  The first American-made
statue was that of Gen. Bolivar, raised by the Venezuelan Government
at Caracas.  It was finished in 1881.

A couple of years later the company undertook to mold the statue of
George Washington now standing in front of the Sub-Treasury in this
city, and to do it in three pieces, an undertaking which at the time was
regarded as revolutionary in its kind. Success followed the experiment,
and when the doors for the Trinity Church were to be cast in bronze
the foundry was able to turn out each door whole.

Then came the final achievement when, in the middle nineties, the
statue of Henry Ward Beecher, now facing the Brooklyn Court House,
was cast in a single mold. The first attempt was a failure, but when
tried again the venture proved successful. Up to this time no European
foundry has been able to follow the example set by the American foundry.

In 1881 the company was reorganized, among the principal stockholders
being such men as ex-Gov. R.C. McCormick of Arizona, the late
Secretary of the Treasury William Windom of Minnesota, ex-Treasurer
of the United States James Gilfillan, and Henry Newton of this city...
The history of the company since that time is remarkable.  In this city
alone are to be found statues by the score that have come out of its
foundry.  Others, by the hundreds, have been spread all over the country,
while a not insignificant number have passed over to Europe...
The company has long had a widespread reputation on account of the
excellency of the patina or finish which it is able to give to its work...

Plans for a new, modern foundry are now about to be materialized,
and will involve a removal of the company to Mount Vernon.
The work on the new building will be under way inside of a month,
and will be ready before the end of the year...

...Many celebrated pieces of bronze have been turned out by the
Bonnard Company, which was the first to undertake the casting
of statuary.  It turned out the Farragut Statue, which stands in
Madison Square; the statue of Gen. Sherman, in Central Park;
the Nathan Hale Statue, and many others equally important.

— The New York Times, 18 March 1906





...The Henry & Bonnard Bronze Manufacturing Company, which
has just completed the Washington statue for Wall Street, was
established in New York City in February last, with a capital of
$200,000 divided into 100,000 shares.

Casting the Lee Statue

Knots of workmen in checked jean blouses, who talked in French,
hovered around a roaring furnace in which a mass of metal seethed,
in the works of the Henry & Bonnard Bronze Manufacturing Comapny,
at Nos. 237 and 239 Mercer Street, yesterday.  In the middle of the hot
and smoky room was a huge flask containing a mold of the chest of the
statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee.  It was one of the seven main parts of the
statue that was to be cast.  There were other molds for other sections of
the statue in different parts of the room, but they were not ready for the
bronze to be poured into them...

A charcoal fire was built in an iron box on the top of the mold of sand,
and a stout Frenchman, with an odd cap on his head, the foreman of
the shop, urged the flames with a bellows in order to heat the passages
which the metal was to follow.  He looked into the dazzling mass in the
furnace once in a while to see how near ready it was to be run into the
mold.  The other workmen wound clothes about their hands and arms
to keep the burning bronze from coming in contact with the flesh.
At last the plate was taken off the furnace, and at the word of the stout
Frenchman an iron chain, to which a pair of tongs was attached, was
lowered into the roaring flames.  They gripped a crucible and drew it
up with its load of bubbling bronze, which threw off heat, smoke, and
sparks.  The metal had reached a temperature of 1,800°, and was
almost white.  The accumulation on the top was blown off and the
metal poured into a huge iron pot, heated almost red hot, which hung
on a heavy chain at the end of a ponderous derrick.  Four other
crucibles were drawn out in the same way and their contents poured
into the pot.  The derrick creaked and groaned as the metal, weighing
over a ton, was hauled up to the top of the flask, about eight feet
from the ground.  The stalwart Frenchman gave the signal and the pot
was tipped up.  A stream of dazzling metal ran out into a wide orifice
in the mold and went hissing and crackling through the interstices.
Smoke and bright sheets of flame shot out through the vent holes.
There was a sharp report and some of the metal spurted out through
a hole in the bottom and squirmed, sputtering like a golden serpent
through the sand on the floor.  Mr. E. Henry, the manager, said the
casting was uninjured and would come out all right...

The monument will be paid for by the Lee Monument Association
of New Orleans, and is to be given to the city...
