KXT11ACTS ri:OM OKS. HOUDOS's 1IIAUV.
Last October the IMnhdi sent mi
autograph letter to General Gordon
exulting over the wreck of Colonel
Stewart's steamer and the murder of
that ofllccr and his companions, and
in proof of the knowledge that dis
aster had overtaken Stcwait, ho in
doised copies of documents found
on the steamer and an account how
ing the stale of the munitions and
supplies at Khartoum at tho time of
Stewart's departure. By the mes
senger who brought the letter Gen
eral Gordon sent back a defiant re
ply to the Mahdl. He said: "I do
not care how many men you killed,
or what success you gained. It
makes no difference to inc." After
more in tho same vein, ho concluded
with: "I do not care what forces
you have. I am made of iron and
intend to hold on here."
On Sept. 18th Gordon wrote:
"How many times have I written,
asking for rc-cnforccments, but my
letters hare never been answered.
Tho hearts of my gallant men aro
weary with this long waiting for as
sistance and failure to receive any
word of encouragement which would
lead them to expect help shortly.
While you cat, drink and rest in
good beds, we are always fighting."
In a letter written on Nov. 4th
Goneral Gordon declined to agree
with the home authorities that the
expedition under Lord Wolseley was
for the purpose of rescuing him, but
was, he says, designed to rescue the
garrison at Khartoum.
A letter written in December is as
follows: 'I have five steamers and
nine guns at Mctcmneh awaiting
your orders. I can hold out forty
days longer with case. After that
it will be difficult. The loss of Colo
nel Stewart is terrible. I told him
to give you all tha information pos
sible. He -had my journal from
January 3rd to September 10th.
I have sent out scores of mes
sages in all directions during the
last eight months. Do not send
private letters to me. The risk is
too great. Do not write me in
cipher. I have no key and it is no .
use, the Mahdi knows everything.
Take the road from Abullot to Me
temneh. I do not fear the Mahdi.
Both the Greek Consnl and the Aus
trian Consul are safe. The Mahdi
has captured a letter from the King
of Abyssinia to me. Your expedi
tion, as I understand, is for the re
lief of the garrison at Khartoum,
which I failed to accomplish. I de
cline to admit that it is for a rescue
for me personally."
A letter from General Gordon,
dated September 9th, contains the
following statement: "We have
sufficient money and provisions here
at Khartoum to last four months.
At the expiration qf that period we
shall be much embarrassed.
Hon many times havo we written
asking for re-enforcements and call
ing your serious attention to -the
Soudan, and no answer came?"
General Gordon also instructed
the messenger sent from Khartoum,
Decamber 14th, to deliver the fol
lowing message to Lord Wolseley :
"Don't scatter your troops. Bring
plenty troops. The enemy is
numerous. Wo still hold Omdur
raan. The Mahdi's lines are beyond
Muncho. The Mahdists one
month ago attacked Omdurman and
diiabled one of our steamers. We
disabled one of their guns. Fight
ing was renewed on the south side
three days later and the rebels were
again repulsed. Come quickly;
don't leave Berber in tho rear. Keep
, tho enemy in tho front. Don't let
the rumors of your approach
On August 24th, General Gordon
wrote to the English Naval Com
mander at Massowah: "We have
five months' provisions. I hope to
get more. Our country's role has
not been very noblo in Egypt or tho
A BUKOl'KAN WAlt C1.0UI).
JNo little uneasiness was reported
on Feb. 23rd as existing in English
Government circles because of the
remarkable number of Russians pour
ing into the Afghan capital, osten
, sibly as travelers. It is the belief
of the natives that tho alleged Rus
sian travelers arc military men, and
their visits arc connected with a
rumored scheme of Russia for llio
annexation of Afghanistan. At tho
saina date the Foreign Office iccclv
cd a communication from the Rus
sian Minister of Foreign Affairs,
stating that no advance of Russian
troops toward the Afghan frontier
has been authorized by the Govern
ment, and that the troops, will lie
withdrawn to the positions they held
before the Frontier Coinmision was
It was repotted that Bismarck is
supporting the pacific policy of Do
Gieis against the military paity of
Rii6iiia, who want war with England,
and that he has sent a protest to the
Czar against any aggressive move
ment on the part of Russia.
Feb. 27th, the Russian newspaper
Svct, the organ of General Komaroff,
asserted that there w'as a strong
paity at Herat who desired that
Russian protection be extended over
The Journal dc St. Petersburg on
tho same date said: It is to bo
hoped that Earl Dufferin, who is in
structed to confer with the Ameer of
Afghanistan, will give the latter
wise counsel. If England and
Russia are to regard Afghanistan as
a buffer to prevent friction the Amocr
must not make it a brand of discord.
The fact that the Ameer is to have
an interview with Earl Dufferin
shows that he is dependent on the
British policy, therefore the British
policy is the more responsible 'for
the acts of the Ameer. It is to be
hoped that the moderation and
prudence of the English Cabinet will
prevail in the settlement of the
frontier dispute, despito the clamor
raised by English politicians. The
Journal concludes its significant
article with the following now politi
cal epigram : The prestige endanger
ed on the Nile cannot be restored on
A cablegram to the New York
Times eay&: During the last few
days a sinister whisper has been
passed around that .the highest offi
cials regard war with Russia as a
certainty, and that not only the
summoning of the reserves meant
preparations for this, but that the
Guards, ostensibly bound for
Suakim, are really going to India,
and would land at Kurrachee, a
seaport town west of the mouth of
the Indus, and proceed thence by
the Scinde valley and Bolan pass
to Kandahar. ,
A Rome special from Massowah,
while admitting there is an under
standing with England for military
co-operation, declares that nothing
is yet really agreed upon. Russia
and France are backing the Sultan
of Turkey against Italy. The Porte's
preparations to mobilize the fleet
and send an expedition to Massowah
have been checked by a warning
from England that the Turkish fleet
would not be permitted to enter the
Suez Canal. Owing to the attitude
of Turkey, the Italian Government
holds in readiness for cmbarkment a
full corps d'armee.
Additional shocks of earthquake
have been felt in Granada, Lojcand
Albania, Spain. Many houses were
destroyed, and it is feared many
persons were killed.

from Japan to China, to negotiate
and settle the differences arising out
of the Corea affair of December.
