New York, Feb. 22.?Mr. George W.
Van Sielen, American treasurer of the
fund for -the widows and orphans of the
Boers, has just received the following
" The Hague, 31st January. 1000.
Mr. Geo. W. Van Sielen, New York,
Sir:?I have no objection to reply to
your Question whether there is any
truth spread in England, pretending
that the Freestaters are abandoning
the Transvaalers and are giving up
lighting or intend lo do so.
These rumors are false.
On the contrary. The Jameson raid
had already brought the two Republics
together as it had shown the designs
of the present British administration
as regards the independence of the two
South African Republics. And now
this war is making one nation of the
two States and brothers of their burgh?
ers, who before were treating eacli oth?
er as cousins.
The Free State has done its very ut?
most to avert war, by Its inward poli?
cy, by its policy towards Great Britain
now and in the past, and by Its policy
with regard to our sister Republic.
We have not made war nor even taken
JiP. n. spiteful atlitiwln.:irur_Hia-lia*u?
tos had been armed against us In spile
of the treaties, nor after the British
took their country when we at lru?t
after fourteen years of struggle against
their never-ceasing raids, had subdued
them;no more after the appropriation
by England of our diamond fields, nor
when arbitration about Die rightful
ownership of them was refused by
England; nor on account of any of our
bitter grievances against England so
clearly explained by our Chief-Justice
de Villlers in the Nineteenth Century
of March, 1S97. For we desired peace.
We desired to cooperate with the Eng?
lish to the benefit of South Africa.
But It has proved of no avail. In?
dependence has been forced upon us.
when the Basiito's proved too power
fill for the British Colonial Govern?
ment who who first had made them
strong and now Hint we have made out
of a wilderness a flourishing civilized
progressing state, our lndnpendence is
at stake. For our Republican treaties
are only being considered of any valu ?
as far as they give rights to England
and a new institution of international
law Is being Invented, that of para
mountcy, which applied to Europe
would make Russia paramount over
The policy of the British administra?
tion has exasperated tnv people, the
most peaceful In the world. There was
and is no choice; my people have to
fipht or die. For our Independence is
dearer to US than our life.
How could we separate from our
Transvaal brothers now that all told
mo women and chlld-eh; boh state"
together haven't more souls than a
small t'.iitish town, who now have been
f .reo I to war by the latgost empire the
world has ever seen?
I We could not separate and we do not
want to.God would not continue his
i visible protection of our just cause
The Transvaal people are our brothers
and kinsmen, not only figuratively
speaking but also In reality. And we
have availed ourselves of the exper?
ience of past months and put right
whatever was hot In perfect shape in
the beginning of the war.
This was Is doing Just the reverse of

Description of tho Homo of Jefferson
The Chicngo Record publishes the
following sketch of Beauvoir, the Davis
Beauvolr. the once beautiful villa
washed by 'the waters of the gulf. Is
now dufl nnd deserted- It was to this
home that Mr. Davis came almost from
the doors of Fortress MorU-uc, and here,
with Iiis wife and daughter Winnie, ho
quietly worked away his life, although
his death occurred in New Orleans
.Here was his workshop in which, after
the war, all that ho wrote of tlie great
conflict, in which he was the mosl
prominent figure on the Southern side,
was written, and the evidence of the
wonderful amount of work which, with
the aid of his daughter, lie performed
is here hidden away in the great man?
sion to which the Jnnesville man car?
ries the keys.
Ueauvoir, comprising sixteen separate
buildings and 1,300 acres of land, for?
merly belonged to a Louisiana planter
-n.iun d I'.iuwn, who hailed from the Bi t
Black river country-. At the close of
the war and at the beginning of the
reconstruction era Brown had died, and
bis widow, fearful that the property
would be eontlscated, sold tlie properly,
land, houses and nil; to Mrs. Sarah
Dorsey for the consideration ot $S00
Mrs. Dorsey later on willed the entire
property to the once president of the
Confederacy, who, setting Ills fa^e tow?
ard his old home, found naught of
home to receive him. All of his MIs
: i sippl plantations were devastated by
tho ravages of war, lie accepted Mrs.
Dorsey's offer, and here, hid en away
from the world, he spent the remain?
der of h!s life.
Tho stately mansion which formed the
(iwolllng of the Davis family is a one
story stiu lure with great columns s p
portlng a canopy covering a gallery si
'/en feet wide and seventy feet long.
At each end of the main building Is a
small structure, one being a guesi room
and the other was used by Mr. Davis
and bis daughter as an ollire or libra?
ry in which the thousands of pises of
manuscript were turned out by the tire?
less worker who chose to end his days
as his own historian.

Nothing but bare floors and walla now
meet the gaze of the intruder. The
Sooks which filled the rough pine board

stood a massive desk where the de?

wooden floor, where the stains are seen
In this building Is still to ho seen
abundant evidence of the presence of a
woman. Miss Davis occupied apart?
ments of her own In which her own
bcoks were shelved. In n little alcove
over a fireplace she painted on the wall
two pretty little views of the Blue
Ridge mountains. Here, also, remains
the frame which once held a full-length
mirror, in which, it is said, the "Daugh?

the different rooms has been divided
among different members or close rela?
tives of the Davis family.

capacious wine cellar, which now con?
tains something over 100 dozen empty
bottles of all kinds. The door to this
cellar was and is now connected by wire
