General Otis to devote more attention

The plans Involved no marked de

Intrusted the Immediate charge of all
expeditions to the subordinate gen

rely more upon Lawton, MacArthur,

sending forward the men and supplies
at such a rate as speedily to occupy
the entire country, at the same time
providing for the prompt establish
ment of competent civil government

Under this scheme, It Is not proposed
that any town shall b. abandoned

will together hold Mr. Chamberlain

but It withdraw -.he suzerainty ques

The concensus of opinion In London
Is that a close approach will be made'
to war and such a catastrophe will be
prevented In the end by the Interven
tion of the Cape ministers and the re
treat of Kruger who Is cautious enough
to keep a bridge open on his rear.
Mining operators, even millionaires
don't know which way affairs are going
and there is no business in the South
Africa market. Sir Alfred Buller will
command the British forces In the
event of war. '
Kruger's forces are ordinarily set
down as 20.000. A good many of his
warriors are dead men who are brought
to life when there Is an election but
those who are living shoot straight.
The queen's Influence will be great
