War Telegrams. ZD Renter's correspondent at Cape Town says There is a growing estrangement between the Dutch and British in Cape Colony, and an anti-British propaganda is creating general uu- rest. The Dutch and pro-Boer press is con- ducting an organised campaign of misrepre- sentation against the policy of Great Britain, dwelliug daily on the alleged barbarities of British generals and troops. These misrepre- sentations are inflamiug the Ducth sentiment, which at no time has been so hostile to Great Britain as at present.—Press Association War Special'. EDENBURG, Saturday. The centre of interest in Orange River Colony has been removed from the north to the country between the railway and Baautoland, south of a line drawn from Bloemfonteiu through Thaba Nchu to Ladybrand. Mr. Steyn accompanies De Wet. A strong fortified line has been established by the Boers between Ladybrand and Thaba Nchu, and is being continued westward. As a counter-move, two battalions of the Guards, Grenadiers, and 1st Coldstreams, are holding every drift on the Orange River from Aliwal North to Orange River Station. There is a crying need for more mounted men. In the absence of these De Wet's capture is hopeless. -Reuter's Special Service. Lord Roberts reports that the Dewetsdorp garrison, consisting of two guns 68th Field Battery, and detachments of the Gloucestershire Regiment, Highland Light Infantry, and Irish Rifles, about 400 in all, surrendered to the Boers ou November 23. Onr losses were fifteen killed and forty-two wounded. The enemy are said to have numbered 2,500. A column, 1,400 strong, despatched from Edenburg to relieve Dewets- dorp, failed to reach the town in time to effect relief. General Charles Knox joined this force on the 26th, and entered Dewetsdorp, which he found deserted, 75 sick and wounded being left in the town. On the 27th General Knox fought a successful action with Steyu and De Wet near Vaalbank, but no details have been received. The Welsh Yeomen have again been iu action, and added fresh laurels to their list.
