From Early Inwu Until Lato at

says Lord Roberts MacDonakl fought
rear guard action with the enemy from
early morning until dark nine miles oul
sldo of Naaupoort in the Bethlehar
hills resulting In his effectually blockln
Naaupoort Nek to the Boer wagons.
Hunter reuorts that the enemy twlca
checked his advance by holding strong
positions on two Neks ono of which was
tnken btr re dark by the Scots the Royal

I asented. As a result of rflese opera

nsked undor a flag of truce this morn-
ing for about four dnys armstlce for
Hunter replied thp only terms he could
accept were unconditional surrender and
until theee. were complied with hostilities
would not cease. I expressed my approv-
al and told Hunter on no account en-
ter Into negotiations.
As I am writing a telegram has come
from Hunter saying Trlnsloo ha! written
a second lrttor expressing willingness to
hand over himself with his men rifles
ammunition and other fire nrms upon
condition that horses saddles and brldlos
and other possession s of the Burghers
be guaranteed them and they be free to
return to their homes.
I have replied that the surrender must
be absolutely tincondltional that all
horses rifles ammunition and other pos
sessions must be elvon up and that the
Burghers will be considered prisoners -f
war. T added that Prlnsloou's overture
will not be allowed In any way to Inter-
fere with Hunter's operations which must
bo continued until the enemy Is defeated
or has surrendered.
A later dispatch from General Roberts
dated Ju-y 21. confirms the surrender of
Prlnsloo. with 5.000 Boers.
HUNTER ACCEPTS PRINSLOO'S MEN
BLOEMf'OKTEIN JULY 30.-General
Hunter hav'ntr received a written un-
conditional 'Mrrendir of all the Boers In
Caledon valey attended to accept the
surrender. General Prlnsloo lately elect-
ed to th" ihicf command arlved and tried
to repudiate the unconditional surrender.
General lTunier however refused any
concessions except to allow the Boers to
keep ono rM'ns: horse.
About H n c'ock the troops were drawn
up In two lines on the hills and over
valley and the Boers rode In between
throwing down their rifles together with
a motelv collection of clothing blankets
and gel'' such as was found In General!
The Plcksb'irg commando was the firt
to lay down arms consisting of about 53
men. Then came the Ladybrand com-
mando with about 450 men fifteen horses
two guns and fifty wagons were given
up. General Prlnsloo and commandant
Crowther wero received by G neral Hun-
ter at his tent where they were well
treated and accorded every courtesy.
Many of the Boers have gone through
Naaupoort and will surrender to General
MacDonald. Others are stll arriving here
The Harrlsmlth and Verde comandoes
are yet at large as well as some Boers
who got out of the valley at night but
the prisoners ray that those outside will
surrender and this will practically end
the Free State army.
The Boers say they would not have sur-
rendertd had hey not been surrounded.
The prisoners have been placed in a laag-
er and will be keat there until all ar-
rive. WACO TEX. July 30. A mysterious
double tragedy occurred this morning
at the residence of M. J. Kingsbury.
The dead bodies of Duncan G. McLen-

brothers-in-law were found In the
room their throats be:ng cut from ear

Injured or bruised except about the
throat indicates that no struggle took
place and the general opinion is that
the two men were murdered.

While the yreat heart of the Amer-
ican people is being' stirred to its
depths by tales of suffering and star
vatiou among the famine-stricken na-
t ves of India one is apt to fort-ct
the general flow of sympathy Bueh
BtorieB excite the noble and even he
roic part our American missionaries
aro playing in this dark drama of fam-
ine and distress With tho pestilence
raging on every side and thousands
dying of disease and s arvation the
ml biouaries have bravely remained
at their posts in tho interior and
aiied by th ir wifes ond active help-
ers have fought back the famine with
the slender weapons at their diepcsal
but with a sublime faith tn Provi-
dence and in the prompt generosity
of the American people liow they
are succeeding in this hand to hand
to hand battle with death may be
gathered in part from the report of a
ineetlug of the inter-denominational
m'ssionary Cjmiuiie at Bombay In-
dia an account of which recently ap
pea ed in the Chr:6tian Herald. This
committee is composed of reprtsenta
t'ves of every protestant denomina-
tion now operating in the famine dis-
trict. Rev. It' A. Hume of the A. H
C F. M. is chairman and the Rev. E.
F. Frease of the Methodist miEb'on is
secretary. This committee was or-
ganized in India at the request of the
Chrisain Herald tD receive and dis-
tribute money contributed by its read-
ers and friends in America.
A f ter referring to general conditions
the report gots on to say; "There is
no disguising1 the fact that the dis-
tress is increasing acute and the mor-
tality from starvation is now terrible
ani rapidly becoming larger. Over
whole provinces the conditions are
worse than in 1897. In one section
eighty-seven persons in every 100 arc
likely to perish." Only thirteen per
sons left alive where a short time ago
there were a hundred. All the rest
slowiy and painfully starved to death.
And this Ib not in one particularly
afflicted village but throughout a
A n solution patsed by the committee
in April requires all missionaries re-
ceiving funds through the committee
lo use the money for the relief of the
famine sufferers and in no case to
apply it to the mission worn. It was
a so decided that in apportioning funds
te main consideration should be the
severity of the famine in the respective
a-eas attention being paid in each in-
stance to the work already inaugu-
rated in each area and the funds avail
able from other sources.
The Quito with its 200000 bushels
of corn sent to Bombay by the Chris-
t'an Herald on May lOtb chartered by
the United states government laden
with co n contributed by tho American
people has reached Its destination in
safety and al eady tie corn bas been
widely distributed among the starving
people. This corn is ground by the
native women in little hand mills so
f .imil.ar to us all in pictures of Oriental
i fe then ralqed with water and hiked
in little fiat cakes. Not exactly a
d.inty meal to oer fastidious taste but
one quart of c rn treated in this wav
will keep life in a mau or woman for
three days while a pint suffices for a
child during1 the name period of time.
Gilson Willets the wel' known news-
paper correspondent.writlngof famine
condit ons during his recent trip
throuiTh India say :
' I h&ve just returned from another
abd more extended tour of the famine
districts and with my own eyes have
verified tho worst stories I have heard
or read of the suffering and distress of
these starving people. Obildren wan-
dering about like chips adrift on the
sep people dying along tho roadside
from sbeer Jack of food jackals and
vultures feasting upon human flesh-
all these things are only too true.
"The land swarms with multita-
tllaous living skeletons. I have grown
accustomed to tho sight of stomachs
hrllowed out like basins. There Ib
nothing romantic in this form of suf-
fering for starvation in its visible
form Is simply only hideous.
"The dea'tb rate Is appalling de
spite the fact that the government is
doing its evel best to save human life.
The money raised and sent by Eng-
land is dting a lot of good but the
money thus sent is notyct sufficient to
cover the wide spread distress of the
mu titude of sins on tho part of the
nut vat in chrge Qf the rt lief works.
'It is a pleasure to a 'C however
that the funds tent hurc by the people
of America ami entrusted to American
missionaries reach tho sufferers in a
direct way and in s eh a way that
(le Aruerium dollars go farther and
do more good than thu same amount
in Engl'sh money.
' The tcentH I hove witnessed aro
heartrendering in the extreme and
surely they erve to omphufclze '.he fact
that the help of the American people
is Badly needed. The money sent
here from the United States through
the Chribtlan Herald Is doing-an unitiz-
ing amount of good. And btill more
money In needed for the rainy season
approaches and Heaven only knows
how these uuubcltercd sufrerers are
to be saved."
