THE DUTCH NOTE.
The text of the communication of the
Dutch minister In London to Lord Lans-
, downe Is as follows:
"In the opinion of the government of her
llajefty. the ijunn. the exceptional cir
cumstances In which one of the belligerent
parties in South Africa is jlaced prevent
it from communicating directly with the
other belligerent. It is said that one of the
belligerent parties a completely shut in
ami separated from the rest of the world
and that the IWr representatives In Ku
rope ar deprived of all means of com
municating with the general commanding
their forces. The difficulty thus arises that
the authorities who ought to negotiate for
the Doer side are divided into two sections,
which are deprived of all means of delib
erating together. It is evident that the
loer delegates in Kurope can do 'nothing
tecause they do not know the stnte of af
fairs. In Africa and that tb I'.oers In the
lie Id are obliged to abstain from taking
any steps because they are not cognizant
of the state of affairs In Europe. More
over, the de testes in Kurope are bound
by their letters of credence, which were
drawn up in March. Ii"", which bind them
fo strictly to the independence of the re
publics that they could not b permitted
to accept the re-establlshment of the status
quo ante bellum and entertain every mode
of settlinr disputes which were not laid
clown at the same time.
"These circumstances give rie to a ques
tion as to whether the offer of good officer
could not be usefully made by a neutral
public In ordfr to render at least possible
' negotiations which otheryise could not be
opened. For thU reason it would be Im
portant to ascertain whether it would le
agreeable to the lirltannlc government to
make use of the good( oflices of a neutral
power. If such good 'offices arc confined
to the task of placing in communication
negotiators to be appointed by the two
partks the Holland government might per
haps be considered ?s indicated for the per
formance of this task, seeing that the
liocr delegates are la Neth rland territory
end accredited to that government alone.
If hi.- Uritannie Majesty's government
nhould agree to this view the government
of her Majesty the Queen would have to
inquire of the Boer delegates whether, they
are willing to proceed to Africa and de
liberate with the Boer leaders on the spot,
returning to Europe after u stay of fixed
length say a fortnight armed with ade
quate, full powers providing for all
eventualities and authorizing them to con
clude a treaty of peace which should bind
absolutely both the Doers in Europe and
the Hocra In Africa.
"In the event of an affirmative reply It
would be necessary for his Britannic
Majesty's government to hand The Nether
lands government thrt. safe conducts per
mitting the Boer delegates to proceed free
ly to Africa, remain tXere ,freelytor the
tlmo agreed upon am. return freely to
Kurope. It would further -bcnecetäjary for
the British government to allow the use
of a telegraph code with a view of ap
pointing a place where the delegates could
m-et the Boer leaders. On their return
The Netherlands government could place
them In communication with the plenipoten
tiaries appointed for that purpose by his
Urltannlc Majesty's government and would
willingly undertake to place at the dis
p sal of these gentlemen the .accommoda
tion necessary for their meetings. The
Netherlands government would then con
sider their task at an end.
"It Is quite evident that negotiations thus
begun might lead to no result. But the
possibility of the contrary Is also not ex
cluded, and In this condition of affairs it
appears desirable to endeavor to open
negotiations In the hope that they may be
successful and face a difficulty which ex
ists for all belligerent parties of taking
the first step in this direction, and It .might
be useful that a third party Fhoul'd un
dertake the matter and serve as an inter
mediary." ViniVS OV MONTAGU AVI I ITC.
Door to Pence Negotiation Has Not
CHICAGO. Feb. 4. Montagu White, rep
resentative of the Boer republics In Amer
?ommentlng on the unfavorable action
of the British government, said: "The re
ply of Lord Lansdowne does not close the
door to peace negotiations but simply points
out that they should be concluded in South
Africa and not In Europe. It must, how
ever, be understood that as a condition
precedent to any effective negotiations tha
Boer authorities in Europe and the Boer
leaders In the field must be placed in com
munication with one another. President
Steyn will not be a party to a settlement
without the consent of President Kruger,
and vice versa. The offer of the delegates to
proceed to South Africa to confer there
and then return, involving a delay of at
least three months. Is convincing evidence
that the Boer situation i3 much better and
more hopeful than the news from British
pources would lead one to believe.
"With regard to the statement that the
plenipotentiaries have no letters of ere-,
donee later than March. 10, this does not
In the leist imply that their powers are
Invalid, for these remain In force until can
celed. They are in constant communication
with the leaders in the field that is, as
constant as the means of locomotion will
rermit, for the mails and cable are entirely
n British control. The refusal of the Brit
ish government to accept foreign interven
tion l wholly irrelevant to the question.
The Dutch government would not after the
lapse of two years and three months have
approached tho British government with
peace proposals unless the latter had first
signified Its consent. This is a well-established
principle In d'nlomacy. The action
cf the British govei.;ment is not a real
refusal, but on the contrary a very direct
encouragement to the friends of peace to
persevere in their efforts to bring about
an equitable settlement. The situation id
very hopeful, and 1 reiterate what I have
paid so often and what I ronvincedly be
lieve, that no country could use its moral
Influence in a more friendly and effective
way to. bring abcut an end of this terrible
.war than the United States of America."

DEATH DUE TO NEGLECT.
Christian Scientists Severely Ar
raigned by it Coroner's Jury.
NORTIIVILLE, Mich., Feb. 4.-Lyman
Hempstead, an old, citizen of this place,
died on Saturday, but owing to the fact
that he was a Christian scientist, the sig
nature of a doctor could not be obtained to
the death certificate. Judge Webster and
Prosecutor Hunt began an investigation,
resulting in the summoning of a coroner's
jury, which to-day rendered the following
"We find deceased came to his death as a
result of a complication of diseases, mostly
acute in form and character, and that his
end was untimely and miserable, owing to
his being denied the medical supervision
and treatment which was necessary.
"We find inhuman treatment accorded
said deceased was by a so-called sect of
Christian scientists, in disregard of all
basic and physicological laws."
