"LADYSMITH SAFE." RECEPTION OF THE NEWS. MELBOURNE, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 10 January 1900
"LADYSMITH SAFE." RECEPTION OF THE NEWS. MELBOURNE, Tuesdhy. The tension felt on the Stock Ex change regarding the fate of Ladysmith was responsible for the exceedingly weak market during the morning. In deed, business was almost suspended, while members discussed the possibility of the truth. of the rumour that a re verse had beei sustained by the be ileaguered British force. During luncheon hour, however, a sudden out burst of cheering from a cluster of Veople assembled on the steps of the Stock Exchange conveyed the idea that definite news had come to hand, and that it was of a favourable nature. Im mediately a rush from all quarters set in towards the building, and the cheer ing became more prolonged when a clerk read a telegram from Adelaide stating a cablegram had been received announcing that Ladysmith was safe.

NOTES ON THE CABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 10 January 1900
NOTES ON THE CABLES. (By "Rhodesian.") What appears to my mind to be the best piece of information received since the beginning of the war is that from Sir George White, to the effect that the Boers have been repulsed in their assault on Ladysmith in all directions with great losses. If this has not been their last throw in this direction, it is very near it. The fighting appears to have been so thoroughly determined, lasting for 17 hours, and the repulse so decided, as to make it quite possible that the Boers may retreat altogether. Possibly the assault may be renewed, but to do so the attacking force must be reinforced. There appears to me to be no other place for reinforcements to cone from except Colenso and the surrounding -district. If there were 25,000 Boers assaulting Ladysmith, and also a large body at Colenso-so large in fact as to prevent Buller attacking with 33,000 men under his command it Is utterly impossible to believe that there are many more between Spring field an...
