All England Startled by the
News ofthe Disaster ,
The .Afghan "War Reopened
With all Ita Horrors.
Special Dispatch to The Bee
LONDON , July 28 noon. Lord
Hattington startled the houao this
moining by announcing that the gov
ernment had received new * from Can
dahar stating that an engagement had
taken place between the Afghani and
Gen. Burrowu" brigade , in which the
latter had been completely annihilat
ed. Lord Hartington further said tha
government was not yet in possession
of full details of tha disastrous engage
ment , but from what ii known of the
relative pcsition of the British and
Afxhan troops it la inferred that the
Afghans who are reported to have
were under command of Ayoub
Kahn , who is supcsed to have been
reinforced by the mutineers , con
sisting of the entire infantry of the
old Oabul regiment , who deserted
from Shero Alia command at Oanda-
har on Wednesday too 14th. At that
date Ayoub Kahn waa two marchei
distant fiom Candahar with his whole
regular force of the regiments of In
fantry , exclusive of the mutaineers ,
who are believed to have joined him
subsequently , three regiments of
civalry numbering 4,000 men and
400sabre3 and thiry Runs. In addition
to these ho had some irregulir cavalry
variously estimated from 1,600 to 3-
500 , Of these 1,000 under Shshagaas |
g.mrd. This force left Herat about
the 19th and marched directly toward
C indahar with the evident purpose
with the British garrison at that place
as soon as a favonblo opportunity oc
curred. Ayoub is known to have
plenty of ammunition. If this morn
ing's news ia confirmed by later news
it will explain the reticence of the
Siradcrs at Ilia late Durbar , when
implored by Gen. Dugfdd Stewart to
sink their differences and unite with
Abdur Rahman Khan , thonewameT ,
to pac'/y and unite the country under
the new administration. Ayoub is
merely the tool of those friendly to
Russian and ngainst English rule.
Notwithstanding the apparent friendli
ness of Eome of them , these Cabul
chiefs have been suspected for some
time of stimulating Ayoub Khan to
the desecrate enterprise of attacking
Gjndabar , and to gat up an enthusi
asm among his solilii rs lie made them
at Oandahar in case of success. The
doubtful state of affairs in southern
Afghanistan also explains why the
British representative at the late
Durbur at Cabul declined to go fur
ther than to recognize Abdur Rih-
man Khan as Ameer of Cabul and
not of Afghanistan , which had been
the title of his predecessors. It is
believed that In some way General
Burrows was enticed beyond the wallf
of tha Candahar fortifications and en
trapped into
It Ayoob's victory i < aa sweopini
as reported , it ia conceded that th
war in south Afghanistan is reopenei
in ell its horror. The evacuation o
the country by the British is indef
initely postponed and poiaibly th
