Over 200,000 British Soldiers to Fight
the Boers.
London, Feb. 2, 4:.10 a. m. Mr.
Wyndhara'a remarkablo declaration in
the house of commons that Great Britain
will have in a fortnight 180,000 regulars
In South Africa, 7000 Canadians and
Australians, and 20,000 South African
volunteers,, is received' with wonder
ment. Of this total of 213,000 troops,
with 452 guns, all are now there with
tbe exception of 18,000 that ate afloat.
Beyond comparison this is the largest
force Great Britain haa ever put into the
field. At the end of tbe Crimaen war
she had scraped together 80,000. Welling
ton, at Waterloo, had 25,000. Mr. Wyud
ham's speech was the strongest defense
the government has yet put forward as
to what has been done and is being done.
The general toneof the morning papers
is that his figures will astonish the coun
try. Roughly speaking, only 80,000 men
are at the front. Ten thonsand others
have been lost, and 10,000 are shut up at
Ladysmith. Excluding these thcrj are
70,000 troops who have not yet been in
action, in addition to those at sea.
Why so many effectives have not yet
been engaged is explained by the lack of
land transportation and the organization
of supplies, to which Lord Roberts is de
voting his experience and Lord Kitchener
his genius for details. It seems as though
the weight of these masses must destroy
