The variation of thece Tlree TTleme
continue lo occupy the attention of
military rilera for the London preei.
Evidence is found of General Buller'sj
controlling mind in directing the Brit- j
ish campaign for the expulsion of the
Free Staters from Cape Colony and
the relief of Klmherly.
The defeat of Cronje's army would
rvk-aae forces of considerable strength
from operation remote from Natal and
open the wy for the concentration of
a Dutch army at Bloemfonu4n, whence
rclnforcemanta could be aant to the
Boer laagvrs betwean Colenao and' La
dysmlth. Premature action either at
Moddt-r river or on the southern fron
tier" of the Free Stat would tend 10
diminish the pressure now brought to
bear upon the enemy's camps around
Ladysmlth for withdrawal of a por
tion of these comma-. ala to the past
of the Drakensbury range.
These ar the beet explamtlons of
fered by military men in London clubs
for the continued Inaction of both Lord
Methuen and General Gatacre, and It
is always eusy to follow them up with
the reflection that time Is on the sj.dtf
of the British army, with lis superior
discipline and systematic arrangement
for supplies, and heavily against Ule
li regularly orsnlzed Dutch forces.

It is possible. In case the dec Won Is
