throui;Ii Caie Town and Diirlian, that
i?ronJe has surrendered, but they are not

Office haj not received anything to back up
Tlie re Is news under Thurxlay's date from
which, though not oHtclal. hs
considered truMworthy. On that dy the
Peers wtie still holdir out. Their laager

mitted by circumstances to act on tho de
fensive, it is dlrl.cult to believe that any J
attempt at relief could be successful. Such,
at anv rate, is the opinion of tho t-st mili
tary experta here.
As to ihu Natal situation, rumor has
b.en v. ry busy. A series of rei-orts h-ive
come through Cap Town and Durban that
Ladysmlth Is relieved, but no credence- Is
given the stories. It is now nearly a week
since Ginerul Puller reported thjt He was
confronted by only a weak rear guard, yet
he appears to have made very little prog
ress since the a;ture of Hlangwana
Mountain and the occupation of Fort Wyllc.
which pl.-.ced In his possession a strong
point (Vupru! on each side of the river.
in- pazzltng feature of the situation is
found in the reirt that tue p.-rs still
have big guns on Bolwana Mountain.
though It is not clear wheth'.r tlw reiioubt-
able "Long Tom" is si 111 In position there.
It was stated two day- ago that their Wg
guns had ren itmovt-l on Monday infor-
n.atlon which more than auyihlngtlse gave
rise to the ret-in un.1 convinced ecrybody
that tho sbgi- of Undysmlth was alout to
