LOUDON, Feb. 8.-2:37
no official news from General Buller's
headquarters and the only information
which has reached London in any way
supporting the reports that he has iv
crossed the Tugi la river is found in the
Asstx'iated Press dispatch announcing
Lord Dundonald's reconnaissance,which
is taken to indicate a prelude to renewed
activity. As the dispatch is three days
old and as Lord Dundonald found n
difficulty in crossing the river, it is nor
iin])ossil»le that General Buller may
have moved in the interim and public
anxiety is again concentrated
Dispatches from elsewhere in South
Africa merely tell of desultory sin 11
firing and the movements of patrols,
though Cape Town mentions a rumor
that General French has captured
Boers, where and when not being an
Militia llallot Art to lie Knforced.
Sensational rumors are current that
the militia ballot act will be put in force
Feb. 14, and that General Lord Roberts,
the commander-in-chief of the British
forces in South Africa, has cabled for
90,000 additional men, weich, it is
added, the government lias promised to
give him., sending ."iO/MX) militia and
volunteers and 40,000 militia reserve.
It is also said that the volunteers will
be mobollzed forthwith. It is even as
serted that the cabinet has specially
dealt with these matters.
The militia ballot act makes every un
married man lietween is and 30 years of

LONDON, Feb. 8.—Mr. Wyndhaiu's
remarkable declaration in the house of
commons that in a fortnight Great
Britain would have 180,000 regulars.
7,000 Canadians and Australians and
22,000 South African colonials in South
Africa, is received with wonderment.
Of this total of 213,000 troops and 2
guns all are there now with the excep
tion of 1S,(KK) afloat. Beyond compari
son this is the largest force Great Brit
ain has ever put in the field. At the
end of the Crimean war she had scraped
together about S0,XK) men. Wellington
at Waterloo had about 20,000.
Mr. Wyndham's speech was tlit
strongest defense the government
yet put forward as to what has leen
done and is being done. The general
opinion of the morning papers is that
Will Astonish the Country.
Roughly speaking SO,000 only nre at the
front, lo,ooo othurs have 1»een lost and
10,000 are shut up in Ladysmith. There
are nearly 100,MM) troops who have not
yet been in action, besides those at sea.
Why so many have not been engag'Hl is
due to lack of hind transports to convey
the supplies. It seems that the force of
these masses must destroy the equilib
rium which holds the British forces
stationary wherever they are in contact
with the Boer army. Lack of trans
portation and organization will not ex
plain adequately why, when generals at
the front need reinforcements, thevonly
get them in very small numIters.
Knowledge is slowly penetrating to
London that large garrisons mu^t be
