GREAT SUSPENSE EXISTS.
London Fears the Situation Is Very
LONDON, Oot. U. The war office
here has this morning been attempting
to explain the summary of the situation
in Natal, furnished by Field Marshal
Lord Wolseley to the house of com
mons yesterday. His statement is now
said to have created unnecessary alarm,
and It la asserted that what the official
note called General Yule's retirement
would be more accurately described as
"a change of position for tactical rea
sons," and that the alarm for the safety
of the wounded Is not Justified.
It is further explained that the
graphing t 9:45 p. in. yesterday says
"General Yule has performed a brllll- j
ant strategical movement. By a swift
march to t lie south, leaving Glencoe!
