REVOLT LOCALISED.

Capetown, October 14. Colonel Moritz, the rebel, who, after the South African war, took ser-

vice with tbe Germans in the Herrei'O rebellion, but subsequently returned to the Union, apparently full of resentment at his treatment by the Germans at the outbreak of tbe war, has offered his services to General Botha, and they were accepted, as bis knowledge of German territory would be valuable. Maritz received £40,000 from the! Union Government to equip his north western corps in addition to considerable military material, and a ruacbine gun eection. The latest advice is tbat the Government is confident that the rebellion bas already been localised. Messages received from prominent supporters of General Hertzog assure tbe Government that tbey will draw the line at treason, and tbey place their services unreservedly at General Botha's disposal. Johannesburg, October 14Mr Creswell, one of the labour leaders, has been appointed a captain in the Rand Rifle Corps.
