I note by the press that Col. Labatt has retired on account of illness. Who succeeds him?
Major-General HUGHES: I have no
information on this subject, other than what is to be found in the newspapers. Col. Labatt has undergone a very serious operation, and, until he recovers from the effects of it, I presume some one else will be placed in command of his regiment. The information regarding his illness came by wire, and we have not as yet received any official information on the subject.
