The offi- cial statement reads: "Earl Kitchener, at the request of his colleagues, has left England for a short visit to the eastern theatre of war." "It is generally says the Post, "that Earl Kitchener's business will necessitate a stay so prolonged that it will be necessary to. fill his place at the War Office before long. It is true that he has not resigned, b.ut the importance of his rand makes it possible that his resign- ation is only delayed.

According to the Daily Earl Kitchener saw the King on Thursday night, as was announced yesterday, at the King's own request. The urging the government not to delay disclosure of actual facts, suggests that Lord Derby, ivlib is now in charge of -British recruiting, would make an excellent war minister.
