WEDNESDAY, FEB. 14, 1899.
The McKinley administration has
negotiated a treaty with Great Britain
by the terms of which this country is to
build a canal at Nicaragua, which will
probably cost 8150,000,000, and agree
not to fortify It, and in the event of
war with Great Britain, or any other
country, allow our enemy's war ships
to pass through the canal as freely as
our own. We trust that there is pa
triotism enough on the democratic side
of the senate to prevent the ratification
of thiB infamous agreement.
Ashtabula county, Ohio, enjoys the
unenviable distinction of being the
banner divorce county of the United
States. With a population not twice
and a half as large as that of Dela
ware county, it had no IBBS than 600
divorces in the five years from 1894 to
1898 inclusive. While there are nota
ble exceptions, the mass of divorces are
obtained by people who have no repu
tation to lose, and a yearly record ex
ceeding a hundred is a reproach to a
county like Ashtabula.

Moddcr River, Feb. 12.—General
Macdonald scored a distinct success at
Koodoosberg. His original orders
were to liold the drift and construct a
fort. The position, however, was ex
tremely difficult, along range of high
hills runuing northwest and terminat
ing close to the drift on the north bunk
of the river. As it was impossible to
hold tlie whole summit, General Mac
donald constructed sti'onjf works
across the center which were held by
the Seaforth Highlanders and three
companies of the Black Watch. While
the Highland Light in:'n itry held a
small kopje on the right, the Ninth
lancers patrolled the left toward the
river, General Mucdouuki's plan being
to repel attacks.
Things went quietly until Wednes
day, when the Boers advanced along
the ridge within 000 yards, mounting
two mountain 7-pounders which were
invisible from the plain. They also
held a smaller drift three miles to the
west. On receipt of this news Gen
eral Methuen dispatched a large force
of cavalry and two horse batteries un
der General Babington, with the pur
pose of surrounding the Boers. In
order to further this plan General Mac
donald adopted merely defensive tac
tics. It was not attempted to force
back the Boers' right which move
might have resulted in their general
retirement too soon.
Qeneral Babington left Modder river
at 11:30 in the morning and arrived
within two miles of Koodoosberg at
4:30 p. m., too late to attempt the turn
ing movement. The next morning it
was found that the Boers had fled from
the lower drift, but still remained on
the hill, which they also left' when
they perceived Babington's movements.
Early in the morning Babington vigor
ously shelled the retiring Boers. The
whole British force is now returning
to camp. This little affair reflects great
credit upon General Macdonakl's tac
tics and proves that the Highlanders
have thoroughly recovered their old go
and courage.

The Australians, who came In closest
contact with the enemy, sought cover
on a hill 9.0QQ yards from the camp.
The Boers thereupon took a position
preventing their retirement, and soon
approached to within 200 yards of
them and demanded their surrender.
The Australians replied by fixing their
bayonets and shouting defiance, while
three of them made a dash past the
enemy under a hot Are and took the
news to the commanding officer. They
declared that their comrades weresafe,
and were confident that they could
keep the Boers off until they would be
able to get away after dark, which
they eventually did.

Boers Making Renewed Preparations to
Shell Klinberley.
Modder River, Feb. 12.—Field Mar
shal Lord Itoberts. commander-in-chief
of the British forces in South Africa,
has arrived here and was enthusiastic
ally cheered upon his arrival. Early
in the day he visited the camp of the
Highland brigade and congratulated
Macdouald's troops upon their steady

F. O. Tait, the golfer, was shot
through the body while defending a
kopje. As he was hit he exclaimed:
"They have got me at last." He wag
previously wounded at the battle of
Magersfontein. He died as he was be
ing carried back to camp.
Apparently the Boers have brought
all their heavy guns from Mafeking,
for the purpose of shelling Kliuberley.
The silence of their guns on Magers
fontein ridge leads to the supposition
that they have retired their guns alto
gether and the fact that they have
blown up the railway beyond Merton
siding is regarded as evidence that
they prefer to destroy rather than to
defend the line. Though Boers still
man the trenches at. .Magersfontein,
their numbers apparently have been
reduced, the bulk of them having gone
to Kimberley or llankward.
