They do casji business and mark every article in

You ought to try the spot cash plan in your buying

Tho Transvaal Republic does not
propose to let Cecil Rhodes and British
capital exploit that country.
Tho Republic refused to grant u dyna
mite monopoly to tho British, reserving
tho right to manufacture, import, ex
port or deal In high explosives to citi
zens of tho Republic.
No one can become a citizen but by
being a native or a seventeen-year resi
dent. Tho present llritisli government re
quested that President Paul Krueger an

Tho reply of President Krueger was
that ho know best what was for tho
good of-hts own people, and ho declined
That is the situation up to Sunday,
when tho further progress of tho situa
tion is revealed by tho Associated Press.
Tho demand of tho British, as ropro
seated by Rhodes of tho South African
company is tho battlo of the ages tho
demand of organized capital to be per
mitted to develop tho vuluablu mines
and resources of tho Transvaal Republic
for tho benefit of tho owners of foieigu
capital instead of tho people of that Re
public. Sunday Cable Repoits.
Wlion tho secretary of state for the
colonies, Joseph Chamoorlain, hi tho
house of commons Thursday, summed
up tho result of tho Bloomfontcin confer,
once by declaring that "a new situation
lias beeii created," ho used a pregnant
phrase, open, apparently, to a variety of
interpretations, but in reality open only
to one. Tho politicians who have closely
followed tho nffalrs of tho Transvaal und
Mr. Chamlcrla!n's attitude with respect
to them are fully satislied Unit tho co
louial K'cretary plainly meant to declare
that, by means of those opening nogotln.
tions, in which the British high commis.
slouer, Sir Alfred Milner, had exhausted
every diplomatic resource to effect a
reasonable tettlenieiit of tho matters in
dispute, it had been proved definitely
that President Krueger was irreconcil
able, and that all hope of an arrange,
meiit by suggestion or diplomatic pros
sure was henceforth vain.
Tho British are especially oxasjieratod
because they feel they have been
trilled with, and tho question on every
body's lips is "What noxt?" Mr.
Chamborlin is not tho man to ho di
verted from his course. Ho has pub
licly anil deliberately espoused tho
cause of the outlanders, and his noxt
step will be u domaiid.
It maybe stated as certain that this
contingency has boon fully forseou for
months past. rrosh troops and lurgo
quantities of munitions of war have
gone to South Africa by every stoainer.
The troops have boon described as re
liefs, but those they wore supposed to
relievo have remained in South Africa.
A steamer which sailed in May took
600 of thowj reliefs, and paBkongors who
had previously secured accommodations
had to yiold their places to the officers

It is estimated that the Transvaal
eould muster a fighting force of from
10,000 to 18,000 man, while the British
troojwi there already number 11,000 men,
commanded by the veteran, Major-General
Sir William Francis Butler, who
has been in command of the troops in
South Africa since 1803. His wife was
HHzalxith Thompson, the well-known
artist. He served in Canada in 1870,
during the Zulu war In 1878-9, in Egypt

porting the proposals ef Sir Alfral Sift
ner, the British high commissioner, a
resolution was adopted declaring that
"no settlement will bo satisfactory which
does not provide for tho recognition of
equal political rights to all."
President Krueger's proposals wore roil
sidered wholly inadequate to satisfy the
just demand of tho unenfranchised,
while Sir Alfred Milner's were Indorsed
as tho irreducible minimum acceptable.

London, June 10. It is not improba
bio the crisis in tho Transvaal will bo
hastened by some untoward Incident at
Johannesburg, J. B. Robinson, tho
South African uiillloiiair and mine-
owner, received a telegram today from
his agent nl Johannesburg, saying the
situation there Is most serious.
Tho concensus of opinion among prom
inent iiitlauders and South African cap
italists in London is that tho British
govurnment is in a tight fix ; that it
cinnot retreat from its position, and
that if President Kruegor does
not recede, war is inovittiblo.
Regarding tho suggestion that tho
United States be asked to mediate be
tween! the Transvaal and Great Britain,
United States Ambassador Olioato says:
"While ovorygood American would
welcomo the possibility of helping a so
lution of tho present situation, wo hav6
not been approached, uud I personally
know nothing of tlita proposed media
