London Jan 11 During tho inter
lutlo of apparent military inactivity
nud oflloial fcoerecy Lord Roberts and
Lord Kitchener huvo arrived at tho scat
of war It is assumed that thoir clear
vision supported by 10000 fresh men
who arc duo to nrrivo in South Africa
within 30 days will altor tho situation
nuil that tho fourth month of tho cam
paign will witness tho beginning of
victories for tho British arms
They aro not however oxpected to
produco doilnito results for somo days
but their mere presence will rcstoio the
shaken confidence of tho men at tho
front in their generals Lord Roberts
finds 1120000 men on tho defensive or
watching tor an opening Lord Moth
ucnt health according to tho Diily
Mail has broken down and tho Held
marshal may relievo him Possibly
somo others will bo relioved of import
ant commands There is certainly
plenty of rank in evidence in Sqnh
Africa In addition to tho field n
hhal thero aro two full generals four
lieutenant generals and 12 or 14 major
generals Thoroiyan uueas suspicion
that whon tho Ladysmith casualties aro
announced they will bo disheartening
and will partly destroy tho patriotic
glow produced by General Whites
victory Tho list of victims of dis
ease issued by the war office gives 23
deaths from enteric fover and dysentery
in Ladysmith in four days revealing
the fact that tho besieged aro existing
amid bad sanitary conditions
Tho Standard summarizes the general
situation thus Well the campaign
has lasted three months Wo have
something like 120000 troops in South
Africa With this huge army distrib
uted over tho country wo aro powerless
to relieve three garrisons from invest
ment Wo have still to seo large por
tions of both colonics in tho hands of
tho enemy Wo have drivou tho in
vaders back at no single point Wo are
actually farther from tho hostilo fron
tiers than wo wero on tho day that tho
ultimatum wus delivered Tho work
which ministers believed could be ef
fectually performed by 25000 men lias
not boon done has not oven boon begun
by four or five times that number Can
any one fail to admit that this is evi
dence of a gravo miscalculation of f orcos
and facts
Tho Times in an editorial criticising
nt great length tho governments con
duct of tho war alludes to tho stupid
and perversa mistakes that havo been
mado and demands that tho practico of
tho non revelation of facts bo aban
doned It insists strongly upon know
ing the truth and tho wholo truth
about tho situation and finds fault
with Mr BalfourB defense piecemeal
Given lloor Losses nt raclynnltli but No
Mention of ItrltUlt
London Jan 11 Tho wnr office an
nounces that the list of British casual
ties at Ladybmith last Saturday has not
yet been received Tho following dis
patch dated at Frero Oainp Jan 10
noon has been received from Gonoril
Bullor A Transvaal telegram gives
the enemys loss at Ladysmith on Sat
urday as four killed and 15 wounded
and this after it is admitted they had
endnred a withering flro from six
masked batteries and been dofeated at
all points Natives hero assort that tho
Boer loss in ono commando nlnno was
150 killed and wagonloads of wounded
Tho heaviest loss is said to havo been
among the Froo Staters who wero
forced by tho Transvaalers into tho
most dangerous places
This curious dispatch is all the war
office issued last night It makos not
tho slightest mention of tho position or
doings of tho British forces It may bo
Interpreted to mean that Ladysmith is
bafe but it is more likely intended to
proparo the Britihh public for a terrible
list of casualties
Only Usual Shelling Occurs
London Jan 11 Tho Daily Mail has
the following dispatch dated Jan 8
from Frere camp With tho exception
of the usual shelling of tho Boer posi
tions by tho naval guns tho British
force remains inactive Eight Boer
camps wero teen today by a patrol along
tho Tngoln in a westerly direction All

British roconnoitcred near Colonso on
Wrdncdny tho Boers hurried from
Springfield This supports tho bolief
that Colenso was weakened to attack

from its special coi respondent at From
Camp I hear on good authority that
PioMdent ICrugor sont word to tho Boor
headquarters asking why Ladysmith
had nut boon attacked and that tho re
ply was Wo should loso too many
His answer to this oxcuso was tho
suggestion that tho Free Staters might
bo put in the forefront This hint was
taken and the uttaek delivered Piesi
dent Krugors udvico was so far good
that tho Free Staters behaved better
than the Transvaalers havo done At all
ovents they managed to soizo a hill
Later in the day the Transvaalers re
tired beforo General Whites counter
attack amid tho jeeisof the Froo Slaters
who actually stuck to their position
until they were bayonetted m tho ditch
After this affair it is almost certain
that the allies will quarrel
