BOER waR NEWS. ¡: To-day's Wires from the Front. THEPEACERUMOURS ^Complete and Absolute Independence. MEETING OF BOERS FIGHTING IN THE FIELD. (PRESS ASSOCIATION WAR SPECIAL.) JOHANNESBURG, Wednesday. On Several occasions the belief has been fheld that at a meeting of the Boers in the 'field to discuss the question of surrender, SDelarey, from the Western Transvaal, Botha from the Eastern Transvaal, and ex-President j' Steyn from the north of the Orange River f Colony, all appeared and collected men for fthe purpose of the discussion. That the meeting had no result is said to have been j'due to the fact that there is absolutely no cohesion among the Boers in the field. Although Mr. Kruger may tentatively talk of terms, the Boers now in the field will not accept anything short of absolute indepen- dence. This they no longer expect, but from conversations which I have had with many Prisoners tkey are only continuing the struggle, to quote the words of one of the prominent prisoners, "in order to make the loss of independence ^expensive as possible tto the British." The Surrender Movement. (PRESS ASSOCIATION WAR SPECIAL.) STANDERTON, Tuesday. During the past month small parties of 1J3o-ers hare made repeated attempts to cross "the line, bus they have seldom been success- ful, as the line of blockhouses is complete. i The enemy most fight, surrender, or try to I bre^k north, but the Boers are disinclined to j leave their own districts. Although they j Quickly mobilise at a given point, they even- tually scatter to their own localities. Sur- rendered Boers state that a number of Botha's <anen are Natal rebels, who will not hear of i surrendering their Transvaal brethren, (although the latter are anxious to yield. Fifty thousand men attempted to come in the (other day, but only ten escaped the vigilance t'Of the Natal Boers. The 15th of this month is freely mentioned as the probable date of a > general surrender of the Transvaal Boers. Those surrendered declare that force will be tosed if necessary on the part of those "desirous of coming in, as they are tired of teing bustled about. f-— Mr. Bryan's Opinion. r'V' (REUTER'S TELEGRAM.) i'New York, Thursday.—Speaking at New- fcaven, Connecticut, yesterday. Mr. Bryan he believed that the valour of the Boers 'had cost Great Britain, so dearly that the (Republics all over the world would be safe.
