London, Feb. 28, 2:40 p. m. General
Hullcr's account of the trpmcndoiiB re
sistance ho Is encountering In his ef
forts to reach Ladysmlth has brought
public Interest with n snnrp turn from
complnccnt contemplation of Lord,
Roberts' victory to a realization of the
serious conditions still existing In Na
tal. Though General 13ullcr's lengthy
dispatch Is construed ns n victory
bravely won, tho commander of the
forces In Natnl has so often reported
similar victories without achieving his
main objective that tho public has
learned to contain Its Jubilation until
Ladysmlth Is nctunuy rclloveu, while
tho long list of casualties Invariably
following any npparent gain by Gen
eral nuller Is nlways waited with
dread and anxiety, which temporarily
rob his partial success of Us acclaim.
However, It Is tho generally accepted
belief that General Duller Is deter
mined to reach General Whlto this
time, and though tho stages are dlsap
polntlngly slow, tho nation consider
ately nwnlts news ot tho relief of those
8,000 besieged troops.
General Ilullcrs ropoit shows there
Is urgent need of Lord Hobert3 exert
ing every effort to still further draw
off tho Iloers from Natnl to tho Free

likely doing so by marching on

certain by the military critics hero.
With tho additional COO Doers reported
pi.soners nt Kimbcrlcy, It seems that
tho number of men captured by Lord
Roberts nearly reaches 5,000.

group of horsemen then npproached.
On General Prcttyman's right rode an
elderly man clad In a rough short over
coat, n wide-brimmed hat, ordinary
tweed trousers nnd brown shoes. It
was the redoubtable Cronje. His face
was burned almost black and his curly
beard was tinged with gray.
Lord Roberts wnlkcd to nnd fro In
front of tho cart until tho Doer general
arrived, when tho Drltlsh com'mander
advanced gravely and kindly saluted
tho Doer commander. Cronjo's face
wnsnlisolutely Impassive, exhibiting no
sign of his Inner feelings.
Lord Roberts was surrounded by his
stnff when Gonernl I'rettyman, nd
