sident Krugor. Great aud most
unusual interest wub taken in tho
proceedings in view of tlfe recent
disclosures made by the publica
tion of the ciphor lol;gianis ox
changed botweon Cecil Rhodes,
thou premier of Capo Colony, and
others who took a more or less
important part in tho Jameson
raid in tho territory of tho Uoor
Tho town was crowded with
Boors, many of whom had riddon
hundreds of miles in- ordor to bo
present when the volksraad reas
sembled, as its present session is
looked upon as being ono of tho
most important in tho history of
tho littlo republic.

to bear upon members of tho ex
ecutive council in tho hopo of
oringing noouc mo muiguuon, u
not tho ontiro commutation of tho
sentences of tho leaders of tho
Johannesburg reform committee.
But it is useless to deny that tho
publication of tho series of in
criminating telegrams has put a
decided damper upon tho efforts
of tho Boors to lesson tho punish
ment of tho prisoners, but it is
said much mny depend upon tho
action of tho British govornmont
towards Cecil llhodos, Alfred
Beit, tho diroutor of tho British
South Africa Company, who took
an important part in organizing
tho raid, and towards tho company
itself, to say nothing of tho pun
ishment which mny bo meted out
to Dr. Jameson nnd his immediato
John Hays Hammond, tho con
victed American ongineor, will,
howovor, bo moro loniontly doalt
with than his follow prisonors, in
view of tho fact that ho was op
posed to actual rebellion against
tho Transvaal authorities.
Tho president, in his speech
said, in brief, that tho rocont
ovonts, "duo to malovolonco nnd
selfish objects," had Boriously in
terrupted tho right nnd peaco of
tho South African ropublic, add
ing: "It has been my wish to pro
mote tho dovolopmont nnd pros
perity of tho republic iu tho most
poacenblo maimer possible, so I
am firmly convinced that it is
your sincere wish to cooperate
with jno in this polioy, and that
you expect, with tho fullest con
fidence, that this session of tho
volksraad will contribute in no
Bmall mannor to tho restoration
of peaco in this state, in ordor
that, through our united co-operation,
our country may flourish
and prosper for tho benefit of all."
Tho proBidont than touched up
on tho foroigu relations of tho
South African republic, tho most
dolicata nnd eagorly anticipated
portion of tho speech, saying:
"In spito of past troubles, tho
republic continues to maintain
friendly rotations with foroign
Thon tho subject was signi-
hcimtly dropped, and tho presi
dent turned to tho South African
republic, and its sistor ropublic,
tho Orango Freo State, remark
ing "1 hopo that a mooting botwoon
representatives of tho Orango
Freo Stato and representatives of
tho South African lopublio will
shoj'tly bo hold, and plans for a
olosor union between tho two
conntrioH, will bo discussed,"
This uttoranco of President
Krugor was taken as confirming
the report that negotiations have
for sumo timd boon on fobt for an
alliance, offonsivo and defensive,
botweeu tho South Afrir nn repub
lic and tho Orrtngo I'reo Mato,
looking to resisting any attempt
upon tho part of Great Britnin to

of either country.

Sixty-Ninth Day, May 18th.
In tho Sonato this morning
Minister Damon introduced his
bill admitting grapo wines of loss
than 18 per cont nlcoholic strength
freo of duty for five yoars. Ho
said the bill had been introduced
with tho consent of tho Executivo
Council. The present duty of
wines under 21 per cont is 15 cents
per gallon and the roveiiuo thero
from during tho last year was
S20,000. Ho calculated that tho
rovenuo from wines running bo
twoon 18 to 21 per cont of alcohol
would still produce 85000 or pos
sibly SG000. This would mako
tho total loss of rovenuo about
$15000 which ho thought tho coun
try could woll afford considering
tho bonefits which would accrue
in the decreased amount of
spirits used. With cheap good
wines thoro would bo a matorial
decreaso in tho consumption of
spiiits. Ho thought that any
thing which tended to substitute
tho use of spirits by a pure and
healthy wino Was a movo in tho
right direction. It was really an
nid to tomporanco, besides creat
ing an additional market for tho
California growers aud provouU
ing any further complaints from
that Bourco. Tho Minister showed
by carefully propared statistics
that tho consumption of spirits in
tho country was decreasing rapid
