The Times correspondent gives a
graphic account and explanation of the
Hritish disaster at Nicholson's Nek,
where Carleton's column, consisting of
six i-onipanic-s of the Royal Irish Fusi
ieers, four and a half companies of the
Jioiici'-stershire regiment and No. 10
mountain battery, surrendered.
"Two hours before daybreak." says
this correspondent, "while the column
.was in an inclosed country, either a
shot was fired or a boulder rolled into
he buttery. The mules stampeded and
easily broke away from tin it- half
asleep drivers. They came back upon
h'Ur-esiershire regiment., the ad
vance party of whom shot into the
niass. bc-lievintr in the darkness that it
was an attack. This added t" the
chaos tile ranks were broken- by the
frenzied animals, and they dashed
•through the ranks of the- rear guard,
tarrying the lirst and second reserve
Ammunition animals with them. It be
came a hopeless panic. The animals,
wild with the shouting ami the'turmoil,
lore down the nullah Into.'the darltm-ss.
',iiui the last that was heard of them
was the. sound of arnmuni'tlon boxes
:utiii paniers as they wi-re splintered
itaainst 1 he boulders. 'I'he hubbub of
theKv- f'-w iniijUtes wa« sufficient, to
lui Viy'alarn'.ed the enemy. The oflicers
were forced to take advantage of the
first k'tpje, as Boer scouts were all
ground their., and the day was ushered
:V^?!with
desultory firing, it was a sorry
sittiatiini which they.-hrid chosen, ami
the'1 men were in a- sorry plight. Ali
'.heir reserve ammunition was gone,
and though they had saved• pieces of
ihi"- screw guns, they were n-.it able to
patch v.i' a single mounting. About !i
I'i-loek two strong parties of mounted
iloei's had crowned the hills and opened
a heavy tire at short rang'- right down
upon the plateau. The -men made a
plucky attempt t.o return this fire, but
it was impossible. They were under a
cross lire from two.directions, flank anil
rear. .The-two' companies of Olouoester
sh.ires holding the Si-lf^cbntair.t'd. ridge
vw.er-..- driV'in fn.ni,.their'shelter, and as

menced as a skirmish seemed about to
beconi'.- a buiehery. The grim fi'der was
pViSsed around. "O-faugh-a-baliaghs."
"fix.your bayonetSj,:and die like men!"
There was 'the-: clatter of steel, a mo

'Hiehl«"d«»rs, Mnnchemers and volun

Then the solitary figures under the
storw-s ho wed bow little the cover had

'•vire fences had imped'-d tin- advance.

Ion- biave fellow-stopped in deaih. cut

its foundation. Cm the sky-line- of the
tabloiand -th" d-ad lay thickest, this
being the- main spot where the attack
had been checked, but the white flag
was already there and strings-of coolies
were digging the trench which so often
is the soldier's, restjng
place.
"We rod'- back to the Boer position—
the little kopje upon which Schic-1 and
his twenty-three men. hud made their
:la?t stand. Th»- bodies of ihe fifteen
that had fallen of this little band
were grouped as death had taken them.
Some lay with beads sunken upon their
ritle stocks, fighting to the einl. Anoth
er had placed his hat upon a prominent
stone, five yards away, and had died
with his fingers prrssing a charge into
his magazine. Th were torn and
burned, wagons splintered ami over
turned, and food stuff, dead horses and
explosives lav in wrecked profusion.
"There remained nn doubt that our
shell fire had played upon the pos-ltlon
with great effect, and one could only
marv°l that the Moers had stood to
their guns so long. Rut. as one of the
wounded prisoners told me later tn ihe
day. there was no room to retreat, the
extended lines of the Manchester regi
ment overlapping the reverse of the
kopje, sweeping the northern footpath,
while the rain of shrapnel destroyed
every living thing on the western
slope."

trucks, was badly wrecked by the re

two men of the Dublin Fusileers and
the ninety-five men of the Durban
Might Tnfantry. to say nothing of five
blue jackets from the Tartar, were
thrown out. Capt. Haldane. of the
Gordon Highlanders, who commanded
the party, rallied his bruised and
shaken men and, amid a hail of bullets
from the Boers, began to clear the line,
while others were pouring deadly vol

off. The blue jackets, bravely com

two, if not three, well-almt-d shells at
the Doers, several hundreds ot whom
lined the hills. But just then a shot
from the enemy's three-pounder or lleld
gun knocked our pun and carriage into
the veldt and wounded several of the
seamen. Hut the men were not a whit
beaten.
The I'all Mall Cane tie's correspond

duct on this occasion as follows
"A party of volunteers, consisting
principally of plate-layers, etc.. led by
Winston Churchill. who behaved
throughout with most heroic courage,
succeeded In placing the rails. Air.
Churchill had previously nsisu-d
carrying in no less than twenty men,

accuracy of the enemy's file and of Mr.
Churchill's courage may be obtained by

FACTS~ABOUT GOLD PLANK.
Payne, llanna and Others IMsputc I
the statement of KornKcr.
Washington, Dec. yj.—Senator Kor.i
ker published some time ago a long ar
Iidc concerning the origin anil adop-.j
non of the gold plank at the national
republican convention of IS'.li*. 111 which,
he maintained that the plank was pti
pared by the committee 011 resolutions,
of which he was chairman, after mu.-b
discussion anil out of diverse materials.
11. H. Kolilsaat. editor of the Chicago
Tlnies-llerald. published an article in
reply in which he claimed the "gold 1
plank was trained by the fi lemls of
Governor Mclvinley at a confei».rH'
held I11 Mr. Hanna's 100111 at the Soulh
'ni Hotel four days before the meeting
of the convention, and therefoie long
before Mr. Koraker was elected oltliei
a member or chairman "f the commit
tee on resolutions. Mi. Kohlsaat
claimed, furthermore, that there were
present at this conference Mr. llanna,
Henry C. Payne, Senator Proctor. My
ron T. Hi-rrlck.e x-Governor Merriam, I
M. I-:. Stone and himself, and that tin?
gojd plank prepared by them was sub- I
mitted to various republican leaders
and also to the committee on resolu
t'ipns, by which it was adopted with
minor changes of phraseology, anil pre
sen ted to the convention. I
The following statements by Mr. 1
Payne, v. h'.ch are verified by Messrs.
llanna, M( rriain and Proctor, furnish
an important c,.ntribution *ty. the his
lory of the gflld plank:
The original draft of the so-called
"gold plank" was taken to St. Mollis by
Mr. llanna. it was the subject of e-.irn
est consideration at the hands of Mr.
Ilnnna. Myron T. 11. rrick and myself,
who were in St. Mollis some ten days
before, t'he meeting of the convention
and closely associated in guarding the
'Interests of Governor McKinley. After
'many Informal discussions the plank
was entrusted to me for the purpose of
drafting a substitute for the original,
and several substitutes were so drawn
and discussed. Soon Governor Merria.m,
Minnesota, and Senator Proctor, of
Vermont, joined this informal commit
tee of Governor Mr-Kinley's friends,
who wore endeavoring to phrase this
particular feature"!' the coming plat
form. Many changes were made in
phraseology and probably-'a dozen dif
ferent forms were discussed at the VH
j'ious meetings, until at the meeting on
Friday .morning 1 submitted the text of
the-goid plank, which- was substantial
ly the one finally adopted by the con
vention. At that meting Mr. Kohl
saat who had arrived in t. Mouis that
morning, was present, aivi was strenu
ously Insistent upon a plain, unequivo
cal "declaration for fhe gold standard
and his Insistence did much to end any
division of H-i-ntiment which have pre
viously obtained among the friends of
Governor McKinley as to the wisdom
of the course.
A copy of the resolution as thus
agreed upon was shown on Friday to
Hon. Joseph 11. Manly, of Maine, and
ernor W. Audrey Crane, of Massa
•hueetts, who were at the convention In
the interests of Speaker Reed, and it
was also submitted to Senator Modge,
Massachusetts, and Senator Piatt, of
Xew York, who ali gave it their un
qualified approval.
The resolution as agreed upon was
given to Myron T. Hwrick, of Cleve
land, who,telegraphed it in full to Can
ton for the approval of Governor .Mc
Kinley, which was soon obtained, and
.hen a. copy was given to Governor
Merriam, -Alio had been selected as a
member of the committee on resolu
tions, and he was authorized to say to
that committee that the resolution as I
presented by him had been drawn by
the immediate and responsible friends
Governor McKinley and approved by
him. and to ask that it lie adopted by
the committee

RAILWAY RUMBLES
About 3.000 miles of railway must tie
constructed to complete the line from
Cape to (,'airo.
There are 1.1.in miles of railway in Cu

British companies.
Twenty-live English railways paid in
wages to employees during the tlrst half
of 18!)0 £044.000 more than was paid iu
the same period in 1808, an increase of
0% per cent.
The BatiKnolles railway tunnel near
Paris is to be lighted by lines of ten can

placed a meter apart, and they are the
