Much    lias     been     mado  clear   to   us   since   then,   and     nothing  more so than  that the Transvaal government never intended from the outset   to   grant   any   real   reforms,   fully  believed in the ability of the Boers to  drive   the   British   into   thc*   sea,   and  purposed  setting  up  a  Dutch  federation   ir.

As* to  the two republics, Sir Sidney seen only  ono   course  open   to  the  Hrltlsh   government,   namely,   to   annex   them   to  Jler Majesty's  possessions,  and,   after  a transitional period of seltlemeii-t by  martial   law,   confer   upon   them   such  autonomy   as   other    IJritisli    colonics  enjoy.      A  more   dillicult question,  In  Sir   Sidney's   opinion.   Is   that,   of   the  just   and   equitable   treatment   ot   thu  Queeii-s  subjects  in    Natal  and   Capo  Colony   who   have   remained   loyal   to  the.

To  llio  latu-r   Sir   Sidney   is   not   disposed   to  extend much consideration:  "The  true  medium between  extreme-  severity and  weak Indulgence may at  times  be hard   lo find,  but in the interests of order and good government  the   perpetrators   of  outrages   against  reference   the rules of civilized warfare ought not  to go unpunished, any more than sufferers  for   loyalty   should   go   without  duo   compensation.

All Uay armed Hours have  been leaving Pretoria, soins east. The  greater pari of the railway rolling  slock has been removed.

Possibly Lord lloberts may have  been able to cut the railway before a  Cull retreat was effected. That I're-  loria -would be defended was apparently given out after the council uf  war with a view to misleading the  Jtoers.  Lydenburjr, the district inlo which  the provisions originally intended for  Pretoria, have been diverted, and  where a cartridge factory has been  erected, and reserve supplies of all  sons are stored, is a volcanic region  uf fertile valleys, enclosed by great  ramparts of precipitous rocks penetrated by narrow winding passes. There  are herds ot cattle m the valleys, and  there is much native, labor available  for fortifications.  The Boeis used both heavy and  light artillery at Pretoria. "What is  supposed to have been the last turn  out of Pretoria arrived at Lorenzo  .Marquez Sunday evening. The passengers included a number of foreign  volunteers, who wero leaving the  Moors, and also tho wives aud children of volunteers destitute ot" clothing.  What the Boer olllcials could not take.  , ihe natives ami townspeople did.  Probably the most important Boer  army is at Laing's _Xek, where both  .-.ides are passive. General llundle  and General Branbant have withdrawn   a   Utile  southward.  General Baden Powell has extended  martial law to the Maricc- and North  l.ichtenburg district. Shots were exr  changed between Boer and British-  patrols IS miles west of Mafeking on  May 2S. Part ot the forces lately at  Pretoria are reported to have gont--  ���������westward to meet General Baden-  Powell and to maEe arsiiow of nolding  me country throagti which he and  General  Hunter  are moving.  A despatch to the Daily Telegraph  from Newcastle, d^ted Tuesday, describes the Boera there aa an unorganized mob without flour, meat or  sugar. Their surrender Is only a  question of lime.

Tlie result, of the elections throughout the province is the complete  defeat of the Martin government. Out  of his _2 cniididal.es only seven were  returned, throe of them being members  of his enbinut.. The government candidates returned are: Martin and  Gilmoiir in Vancouver.

Tho * general result will  probably lix him solid in the P. P. The  Provincial Party has thus scored  three, Kidd. Mimroo and Green. In  North Nanaimo, Mcfnnes, llio victorious candidate, will now hardly  consider it worth while to take (iff his  Independent'mask*, in order to openly  follow Mr. Martin's fallen fortunes.  Including the three provincial party  candidates nieiiiioned the balance of  thc candidates returned are straight,  opposition" of various denoiiiiiiiitions.  Thu defeats of .Mackintosh, Cotton find  Wilson has however robbed the  various sections of the leaders; leaving  Mr. Turner and Mr. Kberts the; two  most prominent tneu on the opposition side. The lieutenant-governor  can hardly avoid calling on one or the  other of these two of his former  advisers. It is quite certain, however,';  that, the former members of the  Turner cabinet cannot muster a sudi  cient following in the house to carry on  the government without making such  concessions to lhe Consei vaiivus as  will secure, their adhesion. Because  Martin is wiped off the board it does  not follow Mint all ihe ideas wnich  Martin cribbed from thu platform of  progressive Conservatives havu gone  over with him.  Black Bear  XV. 11.
