WHITE IS A POOR
The English War Department Declares That it Gives Out All Im
portant News as Soon as it is Received Kimtcrly
Is the Weakest Point.
NEW YORK. Nov. 1J.-A dispatch to
the Tribune from London, says:
News from South Africa has been so
m-juger that suspicions were excited
that the war office was holding back
Important intelligence of an unfavora
e natur. There were Several long
bulletins yesterd ty.
I have th highest authority for
staling that the war ofllce is neither
misleading the public nor kevplng back
a lythng of serious report, nor revising
and curtailing bulletins. The dis-
patches from Cri.tioi riuiiri nd White ;
are published In the precise form in
which they are received and there Is no
ground for the suspicion that there is
bad news In reserve when the war
cilice has nothing to announce.
Ladysmith is the center of Interest
and anxiety, but the British command
er there Is not a good dispatch writer
and evidently finds it difficult to ex
preps his meaning clearly and forcibly.
On this account the bulletins from him
seem broken and disjointed and are
suspected without reason of being
roughly condensed at the war office.
General Buller is a clearer dispatcn
writer, as is proved by his second lucid
account of the skirmish at Belmont
givtn out last night.
Rumors that attempts had been
made by Dutch sympathizers wiih the
Bikers to tear up raitivay lines south of
Ie Aar and other districts in Cape
Cokny are not fully confirmed, but-
scrve to emphasize one of the chief
difficulties which will confront General
Buller when his army corps, rein-

the lin? line of communications from'
Cape Town and P"it E'.iz-ib-th, ;
through Jlsaftect-.d districts.
Boer raiders will be formidable
ttinugh without assistance from train
wrcckers In Cape Colony.
Thi.se who know Sir Alfr-d Miln-r's
F'ern, unllinching nature have ex
pected him make an example of the
earliest traitors in order to enforc- th
warnings of his pn..-lainati"ns, and
men cau?ht in the act of t.-ari.i up
rails tvotrld seen: capi'al subj s for
filr Alfred Miln-r is forc-d by c:: -cuin.-itances
to consult Premier Schr-I-ner,
tvhos information in f-K.ird to
th? Dutch colony has bn useful in
wt ways and embarrassing in o'.hets.
It is easier to keep the lm:-h in ('a;.--t.'oloiiy
'inlet with Mr. Sehr-iner in
power, but nior- dilfb-ult to r"iid--r
treason odious. Just a.; it wa.s embar
rassing to prevent the tra.n si-shipment
of arms and a;nmun-i.ir. to th Dutch
republics and t 1 promote enthusiasm
for enlistments in th- v ilunt -r army.
