London military experts look on thi

LONDON , Jan. 8. ( New York Worlc
Cablegram. ) AH London that wai
awake stopped up until the small hours
anxiously awaiting further news fron
Ladysmith and the editors in charge
of all the morning newspapers postpon
ed going to press until the last momenl
in the hope of more definite news o !
the situation and the fear that Whit
had been forced to surrender or Lady
smith's defense had been carried bj
Groups assembled early in the even
ing at the war office , but gloomily de
parted for the clubs later when it was
seen that there was little hope of fur
ther definite news. Persons about the
tickers in the evening were universally
despondent They could not under
stand the paucity of Buller's telegram.
They mourned , commented en Buller's
failure to distract attention by his re
connaissance , and White's report that
he was hard pressed. French's disas
ter only added to the dismay of the
civilian experts. Those who discussed
it could not understand his report that
all was as usual , followed by the report
of the commander that lines of commu
nication had been severed and that
seventy British had been taken prison
ers , including ten officers.
A dozen times in the war office corri
dors and about tickers this remark
was heard : "What if Ladvsmith has
fallen ? What then ? "
* The jingo answer was : "We must
fight on. "
The reply to this was : "Well , if
you fisht on. as you have fought , the
whole British army , volunteers and mi
litia , must be started to South Africa. "
I saw several correspondents of con
tinental newspapers. All agreed"that if
Ladysmith had surrendered or was
captured the Boers would then be in
the finest possible position to play the
magnanimous role with Great Britain ,
and that Leyds could go with the greatest -
est assurance to any one of the great
powers and solicit intervention to stop
the slaughter of British troops and
negotiate for peace. Foreign diplo
mats suggest that in that event the
Boers might not only insist on the in
dependence of the two republics , but
demand and secure a seaport on the
2ast coast of Africa.

Publications Being Made by England to
WASHINGTON , Jan. 8. The state
ment published today credited to the
London Spectator , regarding Germany
and the Monroe doctrine , caused some
comment in diplomatic circles here
today. Officials of the Gc.-man embas
sy say that they lament the appear
ance of such statements and declare
they are published with a view of cre
ating a distrust of Germany's real at
titude toward the American nation.
Ambassador von Holleben , when
shown the article referred to , declared
that it was without foundation from
start to finish. He should not have
paid any heed to it , except for the fact ,
that his attention had been called tci
the matter by a representative of the
press. He hopes , he says , that no
serious attention will be given to pub
lications of the character stated , but' '
that they will be treated with con
tempt by fair-minded people.

A prominent official of the German
foreign office who was interviewed this
evening by the correspondent of the
Associated Press said tha : Great Brit

The correspondent asked what po
sition Germany takes regarding Eng
land's right to search German ships
on the high seas. The official ansv.'ered
that nothing could be divulged at this
stage ; but he pointed rut that the
Bundersrath was sailing ior a Portu
guese port. On being asked what Ger
many would do should it turn out
that the Bundersrath was carrying
contraband of war , he gave a non
committal reply , but gave the intima
tion that such a discovery would seri
ously damage Germany's case.
Referring to the rumor that the
Swiss commission had decided to
award damages to 'Great Britain in
the Delagoa Bay arbitration the for
eign official intimated that such a de
cision might not mean that England
would secure Delagoa bay. Inasmuch
as France might advance to Portugal
the money to pay the award and thus
England might be shut off with no
choice but to accept the situation.

earliest reports regarding the ship
