London, Oct. 24. "So news yet re

The parliamentary secretary of the
war ollicc, Mr. George Wyndhani,
made a statement in the house o f com
mons, saying: "Lord Wolieley sums
up the position in Xatal as follows:
i 'In tho battle ot Elandslaagte, Oct.
21, two guns were captured from the
Boers, who lost heavily.
" 'A large column or the enemy ap

ered in tho wounded and medical at
tendants left at Dundee.
" 'General White was in possession
at Ladysmith and is being reinforced
" 'Tlie enemy appears to be in large
numerical -superiority.' "
The Pretoria dispatch giving the re
port of General Joubert to the govern
ment evidently refers to the lirst battle
at Glencoe, and the reasons why Coni
mandaut Erasmus failed to come to the
assistance of Commandant Meyer can
not be fathomed. Had he done so, the
British victory might have been still
more dearly bought. Probably Com
mandant Jleyer opened attack without
waiting for the others. If so, the
Boers suffered badly because of his
It appears certain, however, that the
brilliant victory at Elandslaagte was
productive of no effect for tho relief of
Gkucoe and tho very reticence and
brevity of Lord Wolseley's communica
tion are only too ominous. It seems to
be worded to prepare the public for bad
news an 1 it is only too likely that Gen
eral Yule has been compelled to aban
don the wounded and the prisoners at
Dnndee, because his force is too weak
to hold the four and a half miles separ
ating Dundee irom Glencoe.
Probably General Yule believes he
can better protect Dundee trom an
enemy advancing from the northwest
by concentrating all his available
strength at Gleucee, wliere there are
now ;;,500 men and three batteries. In
the meantime eitorts will be made to
reopen the railway and to get reinforce
ments from Luilysmith.
It is expected that Commandant Eras
mus has by this time joined Command
ant General Joubert and that their
combined colu.i'iis amouuts to ome
10,000 or 11,000 men, while the Free
State Beer?, now threatening Lady
smith from the east, and a column re
rs. ported to be coming through Zululand
must also be reckoned with.
In short. General Sir Gtorge Stewart
White has been unable to follow up his
successes and is obliged to remain at
Ladymith without being able to re
store railway communication, which is
probably broken at other points besides
Thus the enemy, although their orig
inal plan, which i. supposed to have
been Colonel Schiel's, failed, may fairly
be credited with having isolated Gen
eral Yule's brigade ml divided the
British forces in Natal. General Yule
may find himself m a tight place, need
ing all his experience in Indian and
Burmese lighting to extricate himself.
A private message from Ladysmith
says that a messenger who has just ar
rived there from Pretoria says' the
women there were weeping and wail
ing on the market place. Three trains
have been dispatched from Klerksdorp
to fetch the wounded from Muf eking.
It is estimated there are 700 killed and
wounded, audit is stated at Pretoria
that the British casualties are only 18.

Buchtel College Team.
At a meeting of the students oi
Buchtel college Monday night it was
decided to organize a foot ball team.
The organization was perfected by
electing Hugh Price captain and B.
M. Kobinson manager. A schedule
will at once be arranged. Several
good games will be played on the
Buchtel college grounds. Practice
was commenced Tuesday afternoon.
The candidates for positions on the
team are numerous. Among the
players who will try for the team are
Rockwell. Eves, Robinson, Price.
Hardy, Herndon, Smith, Ross,
Myers, Sharp, G: Brown, S. Brown
audTraschel. It is believed that a
winning-eleven can be organized. If
the team can hold its own the bal
ance of the year it will probably be
put on a stronger basis next year.
Several years ago Buchtel was near
tho top in athletics.- The public look
upon foot ball as a college sport. It
will be far better for the game in
Akron to have a fii"6t class college
team'than an athletic club.
