for several days past.
It is now accepted as tho first prin
ciple by tho Hrltlsh commandeis that
their troops, to bo successful, must bo
overwhelmingly superior In numbers
to tho enemy. It Is obvious, therefore,
that Lord Roberts has no men to pnro

although the total ot tho British troops
in South Africa amounts to zuu.uuu,
