Mr. Slater doubted if he was entitled to take his seat at the last meeting, as it was questionable if that meeting was legal. Moreover, he was not formally declared elected. Mr. Douglas contendeid that the right time to raise such a point was after the reading of the minutes. Mr. Driflield considered that if the last meeting was not properly' an nounced Mr. Slater's contention was valid. Mr. Sligo thought the last meeting was illegal. Mr. Douglas said the action of mem bers at the last meeting could be made legal by now confirming the minutes. Mr. Gaff ney stated that before the last meeting he had consulted the Pre mier by wire, and from the reply was satisfied as to the legality of the meeting.

A SKETCH OF LIFE IN THE B.B.P. AT MAFEKING. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 9 January 1900
A SKIETCH OF LIFE IN THE B.B.P. AT MAFEKING. -4--- (By Rhodesian.) With two other Australians, I joined the B.B.P. (Bechuanaland Border Police) at Mafeking in June, 1896. In order to do this we had left Cape town on Monday night by the Johan nesburg mail at 9 p.m. The train consisted of two portions, one for Jo hannesburg, the other for Kimiberley and Mafeking (which was at that time the terminus), the two portions sepa rating at De: Aar. We were three days and four nights on the journey, which was absolutely uninteresting, ex cepting that our engine broke down between Vryburg and Mafeking, neces sitating some delay. We finally awvoke at daylight on Fridhay morning, the 9th February, just drawing across the Molopo River, preparatory to entering Mafeking station. When I first woke up I could hardly believe'that we were not drawing into Emerald station, Queensland, on the line from Rock hampton to the west. The Molopo is almost exactly similar to the creek crossed entering that place;...

NOTES ON THE CABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 9 January 1900
NOTES ON THE CABLES. (By Rhodesian.) No news is generally good news, so runs the old saw. It can hardly be said in *the case of Lord Methuen. Active operations on his side:, with the contingent results of gaining a signal victory over Cronje and relieving Kim berley and Mafeking, seem to be the most pressing need of.the hour. It is incomprehensible why the bulk, if not the whole, of Sir Charle os Warren's division did not go to reinforce Lord Methuen. The topographical condi tions surrounding the two places, Lady smith and Kimberley, would, one would have thought, have ensured the sending of the whole .of the cavalry to Lord Methuen. This general, with sufficient force, especially of horse artillery (or even naval guns and field batteries), to shift the Beers from their position, could, had he plenty of cavalry, fairly make mincemeat of them. At any rate, he would be able to so disintegrate them that the Free Staters and Boers would never join cause again. The Free Staters would not...
KIPLING'S JINGLE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 9 January 1900
KIPLING'S JINGLE. I have read 'our Kipling jingle In a philosophic mind; My thoughts they wander to the things That' Tbmmy left behind. The object of the poem is To ask those who are willing To drop a' coin in the tamlbourine Of not less thaw one shilling.. Rich and poor, high and low, Are all invited to pay, For the credit of Britannia, SWith a hip-hip-hip-hurray! Now, being absent-minded, I fail.to understand Why warfare should not be stamped out In our dear motherland If three large Empires did combine In one gigantic nation And settle warfare, lust, and greed By simple arbitration. Rich and poor, high and low, Are all invited to pay For Justice, Honour, and Tommy, With a hip-hip-hip-hurray! I have just felt in, my pocket, ,And I find that I have got Two sixpences (one shilling) Enough to make a shot. I send the same with many thanks For Rudyard Kipling's poem; I could not rest at night or day With this subscription owing. Rich and poor, high and low, Are all invited to pay For J...

OUR "TOMMY ATKINS" FUND. "HE'S AN ABSENT-MINDED BEGGAR." 2140 SHILLINGS RECEIVED. When' you've shouted "Rule Britannia"- when you've sung "God Save the Queen"- When you've finished killing Kruger with your mouth Will you kindly drop a shilling in my little tambourine For a gentleman in kharki ordered South?

STATEMER GJPNERAL. RELPASED AT ADEN. Jan. 8. The discovery of contraband of war on a German vessel in Delagoa Ba.y recently has induced the British autho rities to exercise a close scrutiny over suspected vessels. This caution led to the detention of a German vessel at Aden' by a British man-of-war. The steel screw steamer General, 2361 tons, of the German East African line, the vessel in question, was suspected of carrying contraband of war. She was compelled to discharge her cargo, and was thoroughly overhauled. The vessel has now been released.
