Plausible Rumors of Heavy Fighting at
Ladysmith Brought by Natives.
SUSPICIOUS ABSENCE OF INFORMATION
It Is Feared That This Silence Betokens a Reverse for tbe English
' Troops for Tbere Would Be no Object In With
boldinff Favorable News.
LONDON, Nov. 10, 10 e. in.- The scanty nnd conflict-
ing news front, the scut of wnr, ami the fact that General
$ White lias not yet paid a word about alleged fighting around
js' IjtdyHinitli, are again jirodncing a feeling of gloom,
si It may he that General White haw sent news and that
!i General Huller luu thought lt to keep it to himself. . In
di'ed, this iH the version that is beginning to be believed, as it
held to be imjKif-Mblo that the news of heavy fighting
; brought by Kallirn in such circumstantial detail can be wholly
groundlcis. If this be ho, it is ominous, for there could be no
ground for concealing favorable news.
It cannot bo long, however,' before a change occurs,
General Uuller'a forces will wKn arrive at Durban and will
probably begin the advance for the relief of Ladysmith about
