NOTES ON THE CABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 11 January 1900
NOTES ON THE CABLES. (By Rhodesian.) The place of all others around which interest centres at the present moment is Ladysmith, and it is gratifying to learn, by heliographic message from Sir George White, that no anxiety is felt about being able to hold out. This message gives the idea that communi cations between that general and Sir Redvers Buller have resulted in the lat ter informing Sir George that he is un able to move until transport and artil lery reinforcements are received. Or it may be. in reply to, a question whether the garrison can hold out until Lord Roberts's arrival at Durban, which should be in about two or three days. It is curious that no intelli gence comes through of the .Boer move ments on withdrawing from Ladysmith, neither of the approximate losses on either side, These are points where the censorship of the press is needlessly used. What possible harm can even tuate by sending word of Boer move ments, and probable Boer losses at least, is dilficult to see, ...

Theoretically, the proper way to deal with the criminal is to put him out of the way of doing harm to his fellows-either by killing him or by shutting him up. Why should we set the habitual criminal free at the end of a few months or a few years after 'a given offence, when we know thnt - the first use he will make of his libsrty will be to commit some fresh outrage upon society?-J. F. Nisbet, in the "Human Machine." Germany, with an approximate population of 52,279,001, has at present over 1,300,000 sufferers from consumption, and, according to Professor Leyden's estimates, 170,000 die from the disease annually.

WESTERN MIINLNG. THE SALISBURY MINB. (From our own Correspondent.) The following particulars have been supplied "your own" regarding this property: -Work was discontinued .on December 23 to allow those engaged the opportunity of participating in the sea son's festivities.

It may be presumed from the course adopted that the gold contents of this formation, which is quartz, have been favourable. Five lodes or formations are stated to have been found on the sections, and as the. ground has been made for economical mining, little difficulty should be found in carrying on develop mental work without the assistance of pumping machinery for some consider- I able time. The work done on N. 5, or the big pyrites lode, has been by seve ral trenches or open cuts across the formation. Of these No. 1, which is south and adjoining...

PYENGANA-MATHINNA TRACK. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 11 January 1900
PYENGANA-MATHINNA TRACK. (To the Editor.) Sir,-This track having been thoroughly cleared and repaired, I think it only fair to our member, Mr. .T. G. Davies, who, I understand, ob tained a grant for this purpose, to men tion that the thanks of the whole community are due to him for enabling this charming bit of scenery to be easily accessible once more. I rode through on Sunday last, and certainly, never saw it so lovely before. It astonished and enchants all who see it, and we at this end are arranging for parties to take advantage of it during'the sum mer. We are still hoping that the Go vernment will eventually grant us the boon which we have so often asked, and which the requirements of. both dis tricts so greatly need, viz., a road to connect them. It will repay any who have the op portunity to travel many miles to visit the Columbia Falls, and take a peep at the surrounding district, which bhotography unfortunately altogether fails to depict.-Yours, etc., F.
