FRENCH ULTIMATUM TO SIAM.

French minister resident, has handed
his ultimatum to Prince Devr.wongse,
Siamese minuter of foreign affairs. He
announces that In. case France's de
mand was refused, he at once would
leave Bangkok. A blockade of the
Siamese coast, he added, would be de
clared at once- The opinion is general
here that Slam will pay in full the in
demnity demanded by France. It Is
doubtful, however, If the French claims
to territory will be allowed, as much
depends on the response of Great
Britain to the effort Slam Is making to
gain moral or material support.

ain will have a voice.

the provinces that Burmahi ceded to
Slam on condition that It. never be
ceded to any other power, and 50,000
miles of northeastern S'am, Into which
foreigners have neven advanced. In
fact, France demands the dismember
