THE COMMAND OF THE ARMY. SEMI-OFFICIAL STATEMENT. In reference to the reports which have been circulated to the effect that Lord Wolseley's retirement from the Commander-in-Chiefship is due to sudden and special causes, the Press Association Bays: We are in a position to state that at the request of the Government his lordship consented some time ago to remain in office till the end of November, and that he is simply adhering to the date originally fixed upon. Lord Roberts is expected to be back in London somewhere about the end of December. In the interval between Friday and the date at which Lord Roberts assumes active duties as Com- mander-in-Chief Sir Evelyn Wood will command. He will not change either his quarters or his title, but by virtue of an Order in Council he will possess all the powers of Commander-in-Chief. Sir Evelyn would similarly become Acting Com- mander-in-Chief in the event of any prolonged absence of the actual holder of the post from duty, and his assumption of the command will not, therefore, be the subject of any official announcement.
