London, April 13, 4 50 a. m.—In a
roundabout way London hears that
Lord Roberts, when wiring to the
Prinoe of Wales at Copenhagen con-
gratulations npon his escape from as-
sasBination, added two or three hopeful
sentences, portending an early advance
with wide reaching combinations.
Quiet assn ranees are passed around
among military men that Roberts is
wnploying his great army effectively,
and adventurous Boer commandoes are
likely to be enmeshed.
These scraps of news—a detail here
and another there—have reached Eng-
land tonight over comparatively idle
cables, but they do not illuminate the
The Colonials at Wepener still hold
off the Boers. Lord-Methnen has worked
eastward until he is within 80 miles of
Kroonstad. Boer scouts have gone
aTonnd Ladysmith and have appeared
atDewdrop and other places on Boiler’s
flanks and rear. Officers of Bailer’s ir
regular horse estimate the Boers in
Natal at 18,000, bnt these figures are
probably excessive, 10,000 being regard-
®d here as the outside number.
After General Hart’s brigade leaves
him, Buller will still have close upon
36.000 men. It is generally assumed
this brigade is going to join Roberts,
bnt its destination is unknown.
It is calculated Lord Roberts now
has 214,000 effective troops, with 12,000
more afloat or nnder orders.
ON TO SMITHFIELD.
Capetown, April 12—The Bloem-
fontein correspondent of the Cape Ar-
“Olivier’s oommando is moving in
(the direction of Smithfield.
“Five different laagers were located
between Bethany and Kaffir river, lying
parallel to the railway, twelve miles
FOREIGN LEGION IN PRETORIA.
London, April 12—A dispatch to the
Daily Mail from Lourenzo Marquez,
dated Thursday, says:
"It is reported from Pretoria that a
Boer oommando is moving through
Basutoland. This is said to be a clever
■ruse to draw the British away from

It appears General Brabant himself is

LEAVES OF ABSENCE.
Pretoria, April 12—The Free State
Gazette publishes orders to the effect
that no person oommandered for aotive
servioe has the right to send a substi-
tute without the consent of the Land-
drost. In reference to leaves of ab-
sence the Gazette says 10 per cent of
each command can be relieved by bal-
lot for periods of twelve days. This is
intended to meet the wishes of burgh
ers desiring to plant crops.
Advices from Karee siding say the
Boers are busily entrenching their po-
sition at East Brandfort rnnuing par-
allel with the railroad while still
strongly holding the waterworks.
THE GAME A WAITING ONE
Bloemfontein. April 12—According
to information reoeived (here the Boer
activity eastward of the railroad and in
proximity to the border is largely doe
to the faot that Presidents Kruger and
Steyn found the burghers declaring
they were unwilling to remain with
their commands unless aotively em-
ployed, as they are convinced the Brit
ish game is a waiting one. It is be-
lieved the Boer movement was origin-
ally designed to oblige Roberts to
weaken his foroe at Bloemfontein in
order to protect the railroad, when the
Boers would have attempted to recap-
ture the capital. Bat the burghers are
evidently ignorant of the enormous
foroe Roberta has at his disposal.
Pretoria, April 12—A heavy can-
nonade was heard this mornin in the
direction of Bnltfontein, situated mid-
way between Windbnrg and Boshof,
Advices from Boer headquarters, in
Natal, say after a bombardment, the
British are retiring in the direction of
Ladysmith and the Federals are going
to their old position.
Advices from Wepener, where the
British force is surrounded, say the
battle continues favorable to the Feder
als. About 1,500 British troops are said
to be there.
