Small Chance of Cornering Hoers
London April 20 It is now appar
ent that the chances of Lord Roberts
catching tho retreating Boers is very
slender Tho Boers havo everywhere
retired at the first pressure of tho Brit
ish advance and tho hopo that General
Ruudle would bo able to induce them
to remain at Dowetsdorp until they had
been forced to fight has been disap
No attempt was mado to pursue the
commandoes retiring from Wepener
Everything now depends upon the pro
gress of General Frenchs cavalry brig
ades but they aro entering a very diffi
cult hilly and practically unknown
Tho cavalry have already had a long
march over heavy and sandy roads and
nothing is known regarding the condi
tion of tho horses In any case it is a
raco between the foderals and the forces
of General French and General Hamil
ton The slowness of the British in
fantry and previous ability of the Boers
to move rapidly with guns and baggage
over their own country lead to a belief
that Lord Roberts enveloping opera
tions will fail and will have to be re
peated further north At tho most ho
will perhaps capture somo Boer guns
uud baggage and harry the retreating
Considerable results have been at
tained in tho relief of Wepener and tho
clearing of tho southeast corner of tho
Free State but the Boer army what
ever its strength has still to bo dealt
Besides tho casualties among tho men
the Boer bombardment of Colonel Dal
getys pobition wrought great havoo
umoug tho cattlo uud horses Tho gar
rison could havo held out for another
fortnight but it is in no condition to
render much assistance in pursuing the
Boers There is little news from other
quarters The inhabitants of Mafeking
ore now on a daily ration of two pints
of soup and two quarts of skilly
A dispatch from Dowetsdorp dated
