ROBERTS IS IN COMMAND

London, April 21. The government's
reason for publishing Lord Roberts'
Splon Kop dispatches was explained
last evening at Hull by Walter llume
Long, president of the board of agri
culture, who said that the country was
entitled to receive all the information
the government could give. "The gov
ernment Is told," continued Long, "that
having published the dispatches it is
bound to deal Immediately with the
generals affected but. In following
such a course, the government might
have to dismiss every general the mo
ment he made a mistake. Had such
a policy been pursued in the past
many most glorious deeds would not
have been performed.
"The government used its discretion
in publishing the dispatches. From
the beginning of the campaign her
majesty's ministers have not swerved
from the rule of leaving the conduct
of the operations to the discretion and
judgment of the commander-in-chief."

here, dated Elandslaagte, April 19:

The receipts of milk are exceptionally
large for this season of the year, when

At present there are three milk
