London', Dec. 17. Tho Mngnllcsborg
affair Is thus described In a dispatch to
tho Standard from Heltfonteln: "The
scono of tho engagement was a horsu-shoe-shnped
depression. Tho North
umberlands occupied the center. GcM
eral Clements' innip was pltcheil 1000
'yards lower dawn ,at the eastern point
of tho horscskou and Colonel Lcgge's
camp was about 300 j;arJ distant.
"Ocncral Uelarty's 1D05 men, agalnat
whom Oeneral Clements had fought
repeated actions, wcro suddenly, un
known to General' Clements, reinforced
by 3000 from Warm Haths under Com
mandant IJoyers. At daybreak Colonel
Leggo's pickets descried what scemud
to be a fresh force uf British troops
thirty yards distant. Tho strangers
wero challenged. They replied with a
volley, revealing 400 Uoers In khaki.
Tho firing became heavy and the noiw
aroused Colonel Legge's troops, who
arrived Just In time to save the out
posts from capture. A furious engage
ment ensued. Artillery was brought
up and compelled tho IJoerB to retire.
Colonel Legge followed up tho with
drawal, but was Bhot dead by a bullet
through tho head.
Qeneral Clements and his staff soon
arrived. The staff Buffered severely,
but Ocneral.Clcmenta appeared to have
a charmed life. Wlillo mounted men
were driving the enemy back along a
slope covered thfckly with dead Uoerj.
a deafening rifle fire suddenly broke
out on tho plateau above. The sig
nallers hcllographed that tho North
umberlands wcro being attacked. Gen
eral Clements, convinced that they
would easily bold their own, disposed
the remainder qf his forces on tho
flanks and rear of. his two camps.
"At 4:30 a. m! a heliograph from tho
western peak announced that tho Doers
woro nbcufto overwhelm the Fusllecrn.
General Clcmcnts'wns unablo to send
adequate help, but dispatched Yeoman

lasted. According to Doer accounts,
many, even when resistance was hope
less, died fighting.
"General Clements, now left with 700
men, made superhuman efforts against
tho bullets of the Boers pouring over
the peaks nnd managed to Bavo his
guns and camp equipment. He retire!

confirmed the report of the death of

DM LAST AMI
LETTER ON CANAL TREATY
WRITTEN BEFORE DEATH
Shows Why Hay-Pouncefote Treaty
Should be Amended British Are
Chicago, Dec. 14. In regard to tab
controversy over tho meaning and Jus
tification of the so-called Davis amend
ment to the Hay-1'auncefoto treaty II.
II. Kohlsaat, editor of the Tlmcs-Hcr-ald,
today makes public a private let
ter ho received from the late Senator
Cushman K. Davis. The letter bears
dato "Committee on Foreign Relation!,
United States Senate, Washington, D.
C, March 12, 1900," and UJn part us
Tho amendment has this cbpeclal ad
vantage that It was phrased as nearly
as possible In tho language of tho tenth
article of the' treaty 'of Constantinople
Therefore this amendment, so adjusted
to the treaty of Constantinople puts
the British Government In tho position
whero It must either accept the prin
ciple of the treaty of Constantinople,
which Great Britain herself proposel,
or flatly say that the lines of that
treaty which are of advantago to Great
Britain shall stand in our treaty and
that the lines of that treaty which nro
to our advantage and may bo disad
vantageous to Oreat Britain shull be
obliterated from our treaty. If tin
committee, had framed their amend
ment on different lines, or In different
terms, Qrent Britain could have said
that wo nad departed from tho treaty of
Constantinople and Introduced new
principles. Sho would not have ben
correct In saying so, but sho would
havo said It. My own object was to
hold her aB closely as possible to her
The letter concludes as follows:
"Tho possessions of the United Btntes
as to Texas, aro less distant and, as In
California, not much further distant,
from tho ports of access of the Nica
ragua canal than aro the possessions
of Turkey nt the lower end of the Rel
Sea from the port of egress from the
Suez cana). Tho Idea, .that tho two sit
uations aro not Identical In principle,
so far ns the necessity of defense Is
concerned, Is simply preposterous.
"Article 1G of the treaty of Constan
tinople binds tho parties toask other
States which haVo not signed It to ac-
ccilo to It. This tho United States
could not do, because to do so would
bo a violation of Its policy as to Euro
pean complications, steadily adhered
to slnco Washington's farewell nddreu.
Article 8 and possibly somo other arti
cles In the treaty of Constantinople,
binds the signatory powers to watch
over the execution of tho treaty. To do
this would brine tho United 8tnt
within the concert of Europe as an ac
tive, participating and possibly ht
llgcrcnt power. Thnt which we cannot
do aB to Europe tho Hay-Paunccfoto
treaty Invites the European powers to
do ns to the western hemisphere, Intro
ducing them as parties in control undor
certain contingencies and nil In viola
tion of tho Monroe doctrine.
