Sub-Inspectors, Messrs. Tilly, Moony, Kennan, | remains Chief of East Pondoland.
FINGOLAND, IDUTYWA RESERVE, AND NOMAN'S LAND, as explained in Part 1 of this Article, were annexed to the Cape in October, 1879.
In 1877 THE GCALEKAS, a tribe residing beyond the Kei, under Kreli, one of the leaders of the great Kaffir war of 1850-53, defied the authority of the British Government, and even invaded what is now British territory. They were, however, defeated by the Colonial forces under the immediate leadership of Colonel C. D. Griffith, C.M.G., then Commandant o the Frontier Armed and Mounted Police. Their territory was overrun, and Kreli deposed, and his country taken as British, by a Proclamation of Sir Bartle Frere dated the 5th of October, 1877, and confirmed by Lord Carnarvon in a despatch dated the 14th of November, 1877.
In 1875-76 THE TEMBUS, OF TEMBULAND proper, gave themselves over to the Government, and in 1878 the Bomvanas did the same.
While giving effect to the desire of these tribes to come under the Cape Government, it was also arranged to include in the same scheme of incorporation the conquered province of Gcalekaland, and a settlement of native British subjects called the Emigrant Tembus.
They are governed by officials paid by the Cape Government, and under its supervision.
The above-named territories, viz., Tembuland, Emigrant Tembuland, Bomvanaland, and Gcalekaland, were formally proclaimed British territory in November, 1881, and Sir Hercules Robinson appointed Governor thereof. In 1885 they were annexed to the Cape Colony.
Under a Proclamation of Sir Bartle Frere, dated the 4th September, 1878, UMQUIKELA, for breach of treaty arrangements, has ceased to be recognized as paramount chief of the Pondos, and the sovereignty of the port and estuary of St. John's River has been vested in Her Majesty's Government. A Resident has also been appointed to represent the Government with Umquikela, who

WEST PONDOLAND is under the Chief Umquilisol now independent of his uncle Umquikela. A small strip of his territory at the mouth of the St. John's River was acquired by the Cape Government for 1,000l.
These various Transkeian Territories are now re-grouped, under three Chief Magistrates, each with several subordinate magistrates, in the following manner, viz. :
Griqualand East comprising Nomansland (late Adam Kok's Country), the Gatberg, and St. John's Territory, all under one Chief Magistrate, Mr. W. E. Stanford, and eight subordinate magis
Tembuland, comprising Tembuland proper, Bomvanaland, and Emigrant Tembuland, all under one Chief Magistrate, Major Elliot, C.M.G., and seven subordinate magistrates. Major Elliot has also charge of the relations of the Government with Pondoland West.
Transkei, comprising Fingoland, the Idutywa Reserve, and the country of the ex-chief Kreli (Gcalekaland), all under oue Chief Magistrate, Captain M. S. Blyth, C.M.G., and six subordinate magi
Each of the three Chief Magistrates above-mentioned receives a salary of 1,000l. per annum. The revenue and expenditure of these territories for 1884 were:
