nothing moro than what tho Transvaal
Government offered prior to the Issu

propositions as merely a ruse tor tho
Boci8 to gain time, and did not con
sider that President Krugcr was yet
ready to consider tho sweeping de
mands which Great Britain would
make Is reimbursement for the loss of
llfo nnd great expenditure.

migrants landed nt Honolulu from tho

financier said this morning. "What
ever they may say of tho Immigrants
arriving by that steamer It is certain
there wcro and havo been no plague
