LONDON, Nov. 10.?With the arrival w?
t Cape Town of the British transports ^r
oslin Castle and Moor, to be followed <]e
y a continuous succession of troop- mi
iden ships, the real campaign in South
frlca may be said to have commenced,
nd the fact that the first named ship th
as ordered to proceed to Durban, Na- by
al, forthwith, is said to Indicate at
fast a modification In the plan of ad- p|,
ance. kl
It seems that General Butter's first re
love will be to free General White, JjJ
ius somewhat departing from the ear- te>
er plan credited to him of advancing
irough the level country of the Orange
'ree State and southwestern Trans- m
aal. It has been apparent for some sl<
ays that the situation at Ladysmlth hc
suld not be Indefinitely prolonged, and J?
Is understood that Information has w]
cached the government to the effect fir
Hat the quiescence of the Boers will th
lortly be changed by the arrival of the
iege-traln from Pretoria, Into a deterilned
attempt to deliver a telling
trokc. This, It is added led General &
iuller to prepare a counter-strqko and
udeavor to push tho Boers back by a
Irect attack. Such an operation, if at>mpted
will necessarily entail great
cpendlture of life, as during the month ^
le Boers have occupied northern Natal 0(3
ley have fortified most of the passes ch
nd other positions suitable to their re
tyle of fighting. re
While the pigeon dispatch of General h?
fhlte shows the beleaguered garrison re
as holding Its own yesterday. It Is ce
?ared here that the silence regarding
rhat the British artillery wo* doing u'
1 reply to the Boer guns Indicates that
ne dread that General White Is short en
f long-range ammunition is not altoether
groundless. If this is tru\ the
ported further destruction of the c?
nilroad near^Colenso assumes greater Ca
nportance. In
One very serious passage ih General Jn'
White's metsage gives the first official cj
Dnflrmation of the statements of Boer at
reachery, which there has been a dls- J?
ositlon hitherto to discredit, but which pe
iust now be accepted as at least partly cv
rue. of

LONDON. Nov. 11, 4:30 n. m.?Comlotc
silence has again fallen upon afilrs
In South Africa. The British pub- ;
c must perforce be content with the be
rlef, stereotyped report which the to
ensor allows to filter through from Ni
ape Town. That this condition of tc;
lings Is no longer due to pressure of
ork or defective cables has been th
mply proved. The Eastern Telegraph fo
ompony reckons that the real delay 01
i transmission Is about two days. It th
i evident, therefore that the censor- ci
hip is responsible for the other two Cn
ays of delay which seems to befall all tic
