From that point, however, in the event of a further advance, they would probably find British forces at Lady smith and Dundee capable of repelling their attack At Ladystnith the garrison, which has to guard against an onslaught from the Orange Free State has been rein forced bp the Gordon Highlanders and a strong contingent of the Iudian troops, and the authorities are now confident t»f their ability to deal out an unpleas ant surprise to the Boers iu the eveiu Gf an attempt to rush the position. At Dundee there are about 6,000 men. This force ought to be sufficient to stem a Boer advance by way of Zululand. and to maimain the line of cominunica 'tion with the base at Pietermaritzburg. itlie headquarters of General Sir George Stewart W..ite. O »the Bechuanaland border, the situation »eems to give the Boers a euiporary a Wantage. There is considerable anxiety in the districts of Vryberg and Mafeking, although it is hoped that the reintorcemeuts re cently dispatched there will be sufficient to protect the rich town of Kiniberley. The attitude which the Cape Colony ministry will adopt on actual outbreak of hostilities is much discussed here The disjiatches from Cape Town say that the cabinet will resign, while there are persistent rejorts in London that hir Alfred Milner, governor of Cape Colony, has already dismissed Mr. Will iam P. Sohreiner and his colleagues It is evideut that one or the other of these contingencies must occur, as tho governor and commander-in-chief must be in a position to carry out defensive measures without regard to possiblt obstruction on the part of any unsym pathetic cabinet. Continental Opinion With Ooera. Continental opinion, so far as can bo ascertained, remains largely anti Bntish. Popular sympathy with the Boers is being shown in various ways iu Germany where, however, official dom maintains an absolutely correct attitude. French opinion is well known. The boulevard papers are especially virulent iu their attacks upon Great Britain, since the ultimatum was announced, and they gleefully anticipate a long and difficult war. The lord mayor.Sir John Voce Moore, has summoned a public meeting for 2 o'clock Friday afternoon at the Guild hall. to express coutidence in the South African policy^»f the government. It is reported frotu Glasgow that the Allan line steamship Siberian has been chartered to take 1.000 men and officers from Montreal to South Africa. In dipping circles it is asserted that another half million tons of shipping will be required by the government, and the owners are finding it diftio^ to maintain their regular trade service. The foreign flice confirms then-port from Washington that (ireat Britain has asked the United States government to empower the United States consular authorities in the Transvaal to repre sent British interests there during lb# hostilities.
