ALL CLASSES OF SOCIETY ENLISTING. MESSAGE FROM LORD KITCHENER. Capetown, Wednesday. The state of affairs in Cape Oolony is un- doubtedly serious. Although so far the Dutch hara shown noinclinttion to join the invaders in any number, it is believed the true reason for this abstention is chiefly lack of arms. In many places horses have been freely offered, and information sup- plied to the invaders. The gravity of the situation renders the early proclamation of martial law in the Capetown division pro- bable. The division does not include Cape- town itself. According to latest reports, the situation generally is as follows :—Kurunaan, if not now invested, probably will soon be. Griqualand West is full of small parties of the enemy, who are working south towards Prieska with the purpose of co-operating with or supporting Hertzog, whose advacce parties are in the neighbourhood of Fraser- burg. In the central portions of the colony the Boers have reached a point close to Graaff Reinet, where lately the Dutch population have given many demonstra tions of extreme sympathy with the enemy. In the east of the colony, the Boer advance guard is close to Maraisburg, about 25 miles to the north east of Cradock. The general opinion here is that the posi- tion is not properly appreciated in England. The Worcester Conference excited the Dutch throughout the colony, and many old resi- dents who a"Q by no m°ans alarmists, re- gard the rising of the Dutch ns quite likely, and are of opinion that to meet this strong reinforcements would be necessary.—Press Association War Special. Capetown, Thursday. The Imperial authorities are preparing for all contingencies, and steps have been taken to transfer the Boer prisoners from Green- point and Simonstown camps to transports. One camp has already been evacuated; while the belongings of prisoners at another camp have been packed. The British residents at Fauresmith and Jagersfontein are being conveyed into camp at Edinburg-road Station. The withdrawal of troops from such isolated villages to a central point enables the authorities to economise both force and tratisport,-IlrosEi Association War SpeciaL Carnarvon, Monday. The Boers, commanded by Hertzog,Wea- sels, Pretorius, and Niewwenhout, are con- tinuing their march on Fraserburg, and are reported to be at Spionberg. Looting continues, force being used in many instances. The Boer forces are foot- sore, and arc in great want of fodder, the country being very barren. Communication with Fraserburg is sus pended, and it is doubtful when it will be restored, since the Boers are travelling along the line- t n Colonels De Lisle and Thorneycroft are 1 continuing the chase, but their horses and mules'are very tired. The funeral of a Boer who was killed in action wag attended by many Dutch resi- dents, and seve al' wreaths were placed on the grave. Artillery has arrived here. The military authorities are collecting all remounts and grain obtainable. The Boers captured and destroyed the mails due here on December 30th.-Press Association War Special. Capetown, Thursday. I Martial law has been proclaimed in the districts of Fraserburg, Prince Albert Worcester, Ceres, and Sutberland.- Heuter: Carnarvon, Thursday. Farmers ara coming in here with reports IS to the manner in which the Boers have looted horses, forage, and stores. The tele- graph line has been badly damaged. At one place where tho Boers camped, they smashed 16 telegraph posts. The enemy travel in two columns, with flanking parties sweeping everything before them, bullying farmers, walking into houses, and clearing away everything eat- able. It 1:¡; reported that tiiO L, nave passed Spionberg, and are making for Fraserburg. Martial law is being enforced.
