BATTLE OF MAGERSFONTEIN. BATTLEFIELD, North of Modd[?] River, Dec, 11. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 10 January 1900
(From Our Exchiinges.) BAJTTrLE OF MAGERSFONTEIN. BATMPLE33mLD, *North of Modd r River, Dec. 11, To-day's fight was certainly the hardest which has been fought dur ing Lord Methueii's advance. All the principal losses were borne by the Highlanders, who lost no less than thirty-seven oflicers killed, wounded, and missing. The Bier tactics wore admirable. They allowed the brigade to advanuco in the darkness close up to theirdtrenches before showing any sign of life. They then opened a terrible fire from their entrenchment, those on a high. bill in the vicinity adding their quota, while a cross lire from the right inflicted terrible damage on our men. The fact that they returned and hold a good position during the morning speaks well for the' courage, they dis played. THE GORDONS, Being held in reserve, did not sulfer at first, but gallantly worked their way to the front under a severo lire, and remained for a long time at a short distance fromn the front of the Boer trenches.

LATEST CABLES. UNANIMITY OF THE EMPIRE. WORTH MANY ARMY CORPS. LONDON, Jan. 9. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 10 January 1900
LATEST CABLES UNANIMITY OF THE EMPIRE. WORTH MANY ARMY CORPS. LONDON, Jan. 9. Right Hon. Arthur James Balfour (First Lord of the Treasury) addressed a large public meeting at Manchester last night on the Ministerial policy. Regarding the oft-repeated statement that Great Britain ought never to have allowed the Boers to secure so many arms, Mr. Balfour pleaded that the un fortunate Jamesoh raid prevented the Government insisting upon the stop page of the arming of the Boers. During the course of a powerful ad dress the First Lord referred to the cordial support given to their policy in South Africa. The unanimity of the Empire in the face of a war deliberately precipitated was worth, Mr. Balfour declared, many army corps. The Government had taken such steps as the information in its possession warranted, and earlier and vigorous preparations had been the cause of some divisioi and censure. Concluding his speech, Mir. Balfour said, amidst much enthufiasm, "the crisis spells the consol...
METHUEN'S ENERGY. ("M.A.P.") [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 10 January 1900
METHUEN'S ENERGY. ("M.A.P.") Lord Methuenas all the world knows, is a Guardsman, but one of the most modern type, who puts soldiering front and before everything, and stands roughing with the lightest of hearts. His Spartan resolve now to live on the ordinary rations and share the same life as his troops is just what might be expected in such a wiry, muscular, easily-satisfied person. But he is very hard to please in professional matters, and in the time, a year or two back, when he commanded the Home District, he gave his beloved Guards very little peace. Drills and exercises were kept up incessantly all the year round. In the early summer mornings the Guards, in white jackets, were to be seen practising the order of attack among the trees in Hyde Park. In the depths of winter they made long route marches, often in the dead of night. It was of Lord Methuen that the riddle was propounded, asking why her Majesty's Guards were like the early Christians? The answer was-"Because Paul pe...

Special attention is being given to drilling the members in the management of horses, and good pro gress is being made; but it is abund antly evident it will take weeks of. such drilling before the men as a body can be described as expert horsemen.

Surgeon-Major Robertson, medical officer at the camp, has had work pro vided for him, as two men were badly kicked by horses, and several others suffered minor ailments.
