Boers Bayoneted During
B. W. JORDAN'S
Attack on Mafeking
London, Nov. 15. A dispatch to tho
Dally Mull from Mnfeklng.sent by wuy
f ill .rnlplo, because the runnors sent
Southward wcro uuablo to traverso tho
Boi. .'ma, gives an Interesting ac
count if the fighting during tho laBt
arte!: In October. The correspondent
Aucr tho falluro to rush tho town
General Cronjo had recourso to tho tac
tics employed during tho selgo of Pot
Chcfslroom In 1881, making nn advanco
to the town by n succession of trenches
In echelon. Such a movement bud been
anticipated by us for some time, and
for that reason thcro had been sent out
partus to worry the Boers Incessantly
by night attacks. Thcso tactics tho
Sncmy disliked, but ho contented htm
Belt t.lth a dally shell fire, which ex
pot. J lilm to little personal risk. Then
Colonel Undcn-I'owcll played his trump
card by sending out Kltz-Clarenco's
party to worry tho occupants of tren
dies. Tho Uttlo torco stole out silent
ly In tho darkness. No shot was fired,
and tho men, with fixed bayonets,
creeping ruthcr than walking along,
approached tho chief Doer position
BAr the raco course. Then, as they
closed In thero was a shrill screech.
It was Kltz-Clarenco's whistle and tho
Signal for onslaught.
A ringing cheer, which tho listeners
bMk in camp caught up, was tho only
reply as tho party dashed Into tho
trenches. There was a short strugglo,
the attacking forces catching and bay
oneting the Doers under tho tapaullns,
where they crouched, crying for mercy.
At least fifty bayonets got to work and
tho havoc wrought was terrible.
For Just a moment there was no sys
tematic return fire, but then n perfect
hailstorm of bullets poured In irom the
trenches to tho rear. Again Fltz-Clnr-ence's
whlstlo sounded. It meant
oeMO llrlng and scatter homoward."
The Drltlsh forces scattered, creeping
back under tho furious firo In tho dark
ness to tho appointed rendezvous,
where tho roll was called.
Oalonel Baden-Powell met and con
gratulated Captain FItz-Clarenco and
iila men upon their splendid work, say
ing that It was a heavy price to pay,
but tlmt tho Boers had to bo stopped
making rlllo trenches within range of
the town. Tho members of tho party
jre now tho envy and prldo of tho gar
rison. Even the Boer commander,
Ilotha, expressed admiration of tho nt-
tuck, and added that ho would take
Mafeking before long, for he meant to
do one thing or tho other quickly.
Sunday passed qultely, tho Volunteer
band i .aylng In tho woman's laager.
All Sunday night tho Boers poured a
rifle file Into tho town. It was still go
ing afUr dinner Sunday evening, when
Colonel Baden-Powell hoisted a red
lamp cu tho commonage, which was
tho scene of Captain FItz-CInrenco's
night attack. The ruso answered splen
didly. Tho moment tho light appeared
tho Been) opened flro and their fusllado
lasted tho whole night through.
Theio has been n tremendous waste
of an...unltlon. Indeed, It Is estimat
ed that 30,000 rounds of bal lcartrldgcs
woro wasted on tho occasion of tho
night attack on tho Boor trenches.
Double rations huvo been served out
to the men, who aro under shelter, so
as to be on tho safe sldo If tho Boers
should swoop tho town by n long rlllo
flr. 'ilio garrison Is hanging on fine
ly. Colonel Baden-Powell has the full
eat confidence In everybody, nnd especi
ally In the mutter of Implicit ohcdlcnco
to the order to hold tho flro until tho
Bocre cct to closo range.
The shelling continued nil Sunday nt
Inter rls. About 4 o'clock In tho after
noon ocr.ernl Cronjo sent In a Hag of
truce giving Mnfeklng's last chanco to
uurrr 'er nt tho clovonth hour. While
tho fi was receiving nttentlon tho
heavy bombardment continued.
The dispatch then describes General
CronJ 's great attack of Monday, tho
r f which havo already been ob-
f'-om Colonel Badcn-PowcU'B
r-l came," says tho corrcspon
'r 11 v hours' fighting. Tho
enemy retired, being heavily beaten for
all tlr so far as Mofoklng Is con
corne'.1 It was tho hottest day of tho
siege, &"d tho firing was terrific, the
BoerB vldently recognizing that tho
enly v.ay Into Mafeking, It any, was
by a Uopjo which was gallantly de
fended by Colonel Walford's men. The
Karris n la jubilant, whllo tho Boors
Imve bjnn hurled back In disorder on
their linger and will havo to content
thomv'.ves with a long-rango bora
Imrdrc nt until they aro strongly ro
enforcrd. "TUr. enemy lost heavily. For hours
after their lighting lino hod been roll
ed back two wagons went slowly, nlong
their positions, picking up tho dead
and wounded. Tho kopjo resembled a
shambles after tho fight. All tho men
wcro killed by bullets or shells. The
lookout tower was shot to pieces, whllo
even tho saddles of tho horses wcro
fearfully battered about. Tho wholo
placo was simply smashed up by tho
concentrated flro of soven guns and tho
"The Boers at first hold on to their
advance plucklly, but thoy could not
llvo when they camo to short range, tho
men being shot down nt 300 yards.
"Tho enemy la expected to draw off
early in order to defend Pretoria.
Thero Is still no news from tho south.

POOR SPANISH CHARTS.
Washington ,Nov. 19. An exami
nation of tho mall reports receiv
ed by tho department from tho
Asiatic station shows that a largo per
centage of tho American men-of-war
havo grounded slnco tho destruction' of
tho Spanish fleet In tho harbor of Ma
nila. It Is a matter of suprlso to offi
cials, In vlow of tho character of tho
charting dono by tho Spaniards, that
more American vessels havo not been
lost. Rear Admiral Bradford, chief of
tho Bureau of Equipment, proposes to
expedlto tho surveying of tho waters
of tho Philippines not only for tho
benefit of naval vessels but for tho
transports and merchant sorvlco as
well. Splendid tlmo Is being mado by
tho American men-of-war In their raco
to Manila. Tho armored cruiser Brook-
lyln, which left Port Towflk on Novem
ber 13 for Aden, arrived at tho latter
port today and Is coaling preparatory
to sailing for Colombo en routo to Ma
nila. Tho Brooklyn Is nvcraglng about 11
knots an hour. Tho cruiser New Or
leans left Port Said on November 15
for Aden, and considerable Interest Is
being taken by officials In tho speed sho
Is making. Tho Brooklyn left Hamp
ton Roads on October 1G for Manila
and tho New Orleans sailed from New
York flvo days later. Tho Brooklyn's
lead has been reduced two days.
