Cciin'.ry About Coleoso Fighting a Difficult
Field Losses of Boers Splendid
New York, Feb. 21. Tho World this
morning publishes tho following des
pntch from Winston Churchill, dated at
General Buller's headquarters, Chlev
clcy Camp, Monday night:
To understand tho scope and mean
ing of tho recent operations here It Is
necessary to study tho. map of tho en
virons of Colcnso. Tho shortest road
to Ladysmlth lies through Ladysmlth,
Pletcrs ana Nclthorp.
Advancing by this, an army secures
railway communication. Moreover the
water question presents llttlo difficul
ty. When General Duller determined to
break off tho attack on tho Boer posi
tions beyond Potgelter's Drift, ho fully
Intended to raako a fresh attempt and
ho preferred to run the risk and put
tho matter to a decisive test as near
Ladysmlth and as near railroad com
munication as possible, although this
road runs through a difficult country,
beginning with tho almost Impregnable
Colcnso position and further obstruct
ed by strong positions in tho rear of
Tho position spreads In a wide horso
shoo around Clilcveley. The western
naif lies on steep, often precipitous
bluffs and near Oroblorskloof, and
among tho low hills, kopjes and scrub
around Colcnso village.
Against this position part of tho at
tack of December 15 was directed.
General Duller has now decided to
try tho eastern half which lies on tho
south sldo of the Tugela river running
over Hlangwan Hill, along tho green
hills resting on high ridges of Monto
Chrlsto nnu beyond It Clngolo Kop.
Hussar Hill was seized by cavalry
and occupied by tho nrmy the 14th
(Wednesday.) On tho 15th (Thursday)
batteries were established on this po
sition nnd heavy slego and naval cuns
all well entrenched.
On tho ICtn (Friday) a snasmodlc
bombardment was kept up tho Doers
were well concealed and only renlicd
with long range cuns causing fow cas
On tho 17th (Saturday) Oencral Dul
ler attacked tho extreme Doer left on
Clngolo Kop with two divisions and
cavalry holuing their right and cen
ter with a rormldablo fire of slcgo and
fleld artillery. Action began at C
o'clock, the Infantry covered by tho
guns advanced through broken, scrub
by country across Gomba stream unon
Clngolo Kop, continually reaching out
to eastward to ilnu tho true Doer Hank.
Tho cavalry brigade under Lord Dun-
donnld mado a detour of ten miles and
climbed tho eastern end of Clngolo
Kop through tho dense Junglo upan
a. most precipitous slope, and arrived
at tho summit at 10 o'clock. After a
brief skirmish with tho Doer pickets
Major Gough's regiment gradually
cleared tho wholo ridge. Tho Queen's
Lancers, who now arrived on tho ox
trrmo right of tho Infantry attack sup
ported them In holalng tho hill which
they had been on. The Doers lost sov
cral killed and wounded. Ten horses
wero captured. Iho Doers retired un
der heavy tiro across tho Nek to Monto
Tho cavalry then crossing Clngolo
Kop reached out to tho Tugela river
and tho South African Light Horso ad
vanced on tho plain beyond tho rldgo
level with tho Infantry.
Tho Doers had now been driven from
Cinogol but still occupied Monto Chrls
to strongly. The Nek between was
commanded oy the fire of both comba
tants, tho road across It being avail
ablo to neither.
At right angles to Monto Chrlsto
rldgo runs a long spur to tho Tugolu
river. Tho Doer left was now turned
back along this and tho operations on
the 17th closed with cavalry facing in
fantry nnd holding tho rldgo.
During Saturday and Sunday General
miner began tho turning motement
on tho eastward around tho Doer right
resting on the high hills, Clngolo Kop
nnd Monto Chrlsto. Tho operations so
far aro entirely successful. Doth hills
wero captured without henvy loss. The
cavalry on tho extreme right 'indor
Lord Dundonald menaced the Bor
rear. Tho Doer losses in tho bom
bardment must have been consldar
able. I personally saw wounded drag
At last wo havo got on their Hank
and although fierce fighting ilos btforo

Admiral Dewey's Opinion.
Now York, i cb. !. Regarding tho
contention that tho United States
should not build tho Nicaragua canal
without erecting cxpcnslvo fortlflca-1
tlons, Admirai Dewey, In Washington,
last night said:
"Fortifications? Why, of course not
As I understand It, tho canal Is to bo
and should bo, a neutralized commer
cial pathway between the two great
oceans. To fortify It would simply re
sult In making It a battleground In
caso of war. Fortifications would bo
enormously expensive and ought not to
bo erected. Our fleets will bo a suffi
cient guarantee of the neutrality and
safety of the canal in timo of war as '
well as In peace."
GltCAr STOP IN HUUGCRY.!
Chicago, Feb. 18. MrsMary Arndt,
In spito of her 83 years, watched a
surgeon nt the County Hospital to
day amputate her light leg near tho
hip without giving any cWdeucc of
pain. Tho operation proved success
ful. Tho method by which tho opera
tion was performed was of great inter
est to Burgeons, nnd is said In pro
fessional circles to bo n great sten In
suigery In .vmerlca. Dr. Samuel Web
er, a member of tho advisory staff of
tho hospital, hau chargo of the opera
tion, which is said to be tho first of
Its nature pcrfuimed In America, and
tho second known to medical men, tho
llrst having been performed In Europe.
Dr. Weber mado a study of tho Initial
operation, and concluded that tho
method might be employed for tho am
putation of lower limbs of patients who
were unablo to withstand tho effects of
Tho method consists in tho deaden
ing of tho nerves in tho limbs by the
injection of cocalno in the vertebral
cavity, nbovo the point whero the
nerves controlling tho lower limbs
branch from tno spinal cord. The pa
tient had suffered a crancrcnous af
fection of tuo leg, and amputation be
came necessary to savo her life. She
was not in a condition to make sure
or an anesthetic being safe, and tho
surgeon declined to try the method
which had proved successful in a Dcr
Tho urug was injected Into tho pa
tient's vertebrae a short distance be
low tho waist line, and soon "alio an
nounced that she had lost all feeling
In her lower limbs, whllo she was fully
conscious t what was going on, nnd
had tho full use of all her faculties.
Tho limb was removed two Inches
below tho hip, nnd after tho effects of
tho drug had passed away tho woman
said Bhe felt well.
