AGAINST IMPERIALISM London, May 9 Although the Brit ish expected considerable opposition at the difficult drift at Zand river the latest advices from Smaldeel, Orange Free State, indicate that the federals are not yet ready to make a determin ed attack to stem Lord Roberts' ad vance. The latter's front Indeed, is so wide and overwhelming In numbers that it Is difficult to see how the Boers can help being ousted out of Virginia siding as they were out of Smaldeel, even if they selected to give battle. The same considerations would prob ably affect the situation at Kroonstadt hence the belief that little real oppo sition will be encountered south of the Vaai. Repairs to the bridges over the Vet river and the Vaal are ex pected to retard the general march from Smaldeel and Fourteen Streams for three or four days, when General Buller will also be ready.
