SILENCE THAT IS OMINOUS
With Reference to Krnger's Reply to
Chamberlain War Preparations.
London, Oct. 2. It is said the
question of the meeting of the cabinet
tomorrow depends largely on devel
opments in tbe Transvaal. The re
markable absence of news from South
Africa this morning leads to the be
lief that there has bten widespread
cutting of the wires or extra censor
ship. Had the boers not determined
to light it out they would, it is
thought, have sent some temporizing
reply. All the hanging back seems to
be on Briton's side. The work of
mobilization of tbe army corps is ap
parently proceeding in a curiously
leisurely manner. It appears the
cilling out of the first-class army re-
ferves is a hoax.
An advertisement appeared this
morning announcing the formation of
a corps of gentlemen rough riders.
