Senator W.

The Transvaal ultimatum, which  is signed by F. W. Reitz, secretary  of state for the South African republic, concluded as follows:  "Her Majesty's unlawful intervention in the internal affairs of  this republic, in conflict with the  London convention of i88-|, by the  extraordinary strengthening of her  troops in the neighborhood of the  borders of this republic, has caused  an unsettled condition of things to  arise, to which this government feels  obliged, in the interest of this re-  pubic and of South Africa, to make  an end as soon as possible, aud this  government feels called upon and  obliged to press earnestly and with  emphasis for the immediate termination of this state of things, and to  request Her Majesty's government  to give assurances upon the following four demands:  "First���That all points of mutual  agreed   upon   by  and Her Majest} 's goi-einmeiit  Second���That all. tioops 011 the  borders of this republic shall be instantly withdrawn -    ,    '  ",rii"rd���That all reinforcements  of troops   which - have   ai rived, in"  Eolith   Africa  since June   1, 1S99,  ;hail be removed noni South,Africa'  within   a   reasonable   time   to   be  "igjeed upon  with this government;  m kli il asiiirance and  pjit "of this goV-  ���nimeni that no attack 1100:1 or lios-  ' 'against  a.i\    portion. 0/ tne  ���o^ess'ons" of ���the   British go\er,i-  ���'iient shall be made by this republic  during further  negotiations   witni.i  .the period of time to be subieqnent-  ly agreed 111011 between the governments.

PRESS    COMMENT.  The Loudon Daily Chronicle is  compelled to admit that the Boer  ultimatum, unhappily worded as it  is, makes war unavoidable  Editorial articles in other papers  generally express pity for Kruger's  precipitancy, which places the Taans-  vaal technically in the wrong.  Tlie London Daily Mail savs:  "The Boers have doffed the mask  and declared war, which their deluded supporters in England had  considered so impossible. In the  end the Boers and their supporters  will receive the punishment which  their insane attempt to perpetuate  on an almost barbaric system their  government iu the nineteenth century most throughly deserves."  The . London Daily Telegraph  says: "President Kruger has  slammed the door iii the face of  Great Britain with all the violence  of infuriated folly. He appears to  have celebrated his birthday iu a  manner which will bring his republic clattering down upon his  head."  The London Times says editorially: "It is the Transvaal, not  we, who snap the last frail thread  of negotiations. They have declared war upon the British empire,' and they must feel her arm  and pay the penalty of their aggression.

The changes are  summarized:  "1 The Chief Justice has been.  ^ dismissed for refusing to accept the  subordination of the High Court of  Justice to the resolutions of the  Volksraad. and the direct interference of the government iu the administration of j ustice.  "2. An act has been passed enabling the President lo expel anyone he mav wish.  It is'usual for military men to  sneer at the generalship, or want of  it, which, as they allege,.was responsible for, the Majuba disaster, says  the African Review. These critics  are,wise after the event. Il is for-  forgotten .that the Boers met other  [officers than Gen. Collev at  Broul  fights  oom, and  other villages, and that in 110 case  were our men and military leaders  able to stand up to the enemy. At  Durban, in Natal, in 1848, we got  the worst of it, 'as we did at Doorn-  kop, where English officers of the  ordinary type commanded. The  only military success which English officers can claim in a good  many encounters with the Boers is  the battle of Booinplaats, fought in  1848 between artillery and flintlock  guns.  Al Laing's Neck the action began by our guns dropping a few  shells into rthe Boer lines, and, as  .admitted by the Boers theaiselve,  the small loss they suffered from  this fire���Gen. Joubert was nearly  hit by a splinter of a shell���induced  them to think seriously of abandoning the position.

Result, 190 killed aud  wounded on the British side, against  24 Boers killed aud wounded. At  Ingogo, fought a few days afterwards, a force of about 300 men and  and two guns were stopped on a  small plateau, and, after an action  lasting all day, our men, with the  two guns, were withdrawn during  the night, leaving dead and wounded  on the ground.

Vancouver   A<*ked    to   Guarantee  the Bonds.  The  Vancomer  World   dealing  with the Oswald scheme for  faster  transportation in the northern trade  between Vancouver and Skagway,  says:  "The matter is one ^ which  is  unquestionably of vast interest  to  the commercial and shipping prosperity of Vancouver  and therefore  is entitled* to every consideration at  the hands of our citizens.    Briefly  told, Mr. Oswald's proposition is to  place upon the route between  Vancouver and Skaway, and other lead-  irg northern ports, a faster line of  steamers than  obtains  at  present.  He  states  that the  vessels which  will be put upon the route will cover  the distance between Vancouver and  Skagway in 48 hours at most, and  that the service will be a tri-weekly  one.    His intention  is   that   there  shall be a vessel leaving Vancouver  on alternate days, and the same at  Skagway, and that Vancouvershall  be  the  home  port,  making it the  point of departure and direct arrival  for the  northern  trade  to be transacted by that line.    This, as our  readers  can  well understand, is a  great consideration.    We  are  credibly informed by an official that of  the  traffic  which   passes   over the  White Pass Railway between Skagway and Lake Bennett, 40 percent,  hails from Vancouver,   36 per cent,  from Victoria, and 24 percent, from  Seattle.    There -is no reason whatever  why   Vancouver   should  not  control at least Co per cent, of the  traffic,   and with a direct line  of  tiffs.  'McGillivray v.

OF  THE  DYEA   AWAKES.  E. K. Woosler came up from  Dyea to Bennett last week and talking with a Sun man he said Dyea is  awakening from its long sleep by  the prospect of having railroad connection with Bennett. The property holders are so confident of a  Dyea revival that they have gone  to the extent of electing officers to  guide the town to its glorious future and prophesied greatness and  importance. The men elected wei e:  D. W. Small, mayor; J. Von  Haslocker,' clerk; A. J. Walker,  George Teal, Fred Stotko. J. Andrews and Dr. Julius Heubner,  councilmen. Mr. Wooster says he  saw with his own eyes 15 men at  work under Foreman Kinney at  the foot of Broadway aud twice that  number at the Scales laying out a  winter camp at the sight of the  proposed tunnel.
