THE ELANDSLAAGTE BATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 1 December 1899

THE ELANDSLAMKTE BATTLE Tub Times' special writing of. the battle of Elandslaagte says : At four o'clock our first battery came into action between tbe Devons and Mac chestera. The enemy were nothing daunted, and returned the fire with vigor. Tlieir range was excellent, and though in the first place tbey only remained in action six minutes, they upset an ammunition waggon, and caused several casualties, especially to horses. Meantime crowds of the (ly ing enemy were seen leaving the field, and escaping ott the right ot oar advance. This retreat of mounted enemy was a ruse by which tbe Boers hoped to draw off part of the attack ing force, themselves galloping back to the position on the reverse of the hill. Our artillery, having now two batteries in action, began to pre pare for the infantry assault, bursting shrapnel all along the Boer position. Thunder clouds gathered behind the hill", and made an ominous back ground, against which the lurid light of bursting shells showed as if it...

MORUYA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 1 December 1899

MORUYA. (From our own Correspondent.) So my "copy" arrived too late last week. Perhaps the mailman having only two horsea had to leave it behind on account of the weighty matter, or was it too heavy for the. " tired" Moruya officials to get into the bag. Anyhow, it was posted in good time and should have reached you.. The occurrence is much to be regretted as the Chronicle was worth only about half usual price without my screed. A thorn in the side of some of - our Moruya people is the local sergeant. He and I are on the best of terms for he has not yet caught me ministering to the thirst after hours or having a quiet game of cards. And this re minds me that unless our Inspector removes the nomadic cows from oar streets, it will be " hornB" and not. " thorns" we'll get in our sides. Mr, Austin Ohapmau M.P.,. has secured the promise of a rise of Is per day in the wages of the men engaged on the .River Works. 'Tis an insig nificant amount, but our " Capting" was unable to seoure the c...

The tCUtff. Full details are now to band in con nection with the battle of Belmont, which took place on Thursday, the 23rd inst., and resulted in a brilliant British victory, after a tough struggle in which both'sideB fought with deter, mined bravery. On the eve of the battle, a detachment of the New South Wales Lancers, under Lieutenant Osborne, supported by a body of in. fantry, checked an advancing force of the enemy on a farm near Witteputs, a few miles south of Belmont No casualties are reported to have occurred, and the Boers retired to a strongly fortified position, which 'the prisoners since taken declare they considered im pregnable. It consisted cf three rocky ridges, well fortified And commanded by a number of kojjes.

MARTIAL LAW. What it Means. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 1 December 1899

MABTIAL LAW What it Means. When the exigencies of the position demand the proclamation of martial law, as it Is generally termed nowadays (although " mijitarylaw " is the more correct phrase), tiifa .effect, broadly, is to abrogate the ordinary law and to substitute for it military force, uncon trolled save by what, in the discretion of the commanding .officer, may be con. .sidered the necessity of the case. Its essential purpose is the maintenance of discipline, but it also includes the administrative government of the mili tary forces of the Empire, more es |racially in the matters of enlistment, service and billeting. Martial law, as it is now understood, applies sot only to military penohft, bat to the civil community. •' The persons directly subjeot to mili tary law are the office'ra.on the active list (including theUoyal Marines), the permanent BtafF of the Auxiliary (Vol unteer) Forces, and, in Great Britain, the officers of the Militia. These are subject to its provisions at...

ASSOCIATION CRICKET. Cobargo v. Bermagui. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 1 December 1899

ASSOCIATION CRICKET.. Cobargo v-.Bermagui. Contrary to popular expectation the Cobargo secoud grade eleven scored a win against) Bermagui last Saturday on the local wicket. The visiting team was composed principally of players who foriuerly belonged to the Dignam's club now defunct. Excepting for the inclusion of Staunton and G. Constable the home team was substantially the same as that defeated by the Dry River men on the previous Saturday. Cobargo batted first, and the bowling of Payne and E. O'Neill proved the most effective. For Cobargo Staunton pleased his &ide by securing the splen. did average of'7 for 18. Cobargo losing the toss were sent to the wickets, Roberts and O'Toole being entrusted with the opening of the innings, O'Toole opened well, and after hitting a fourer, attempted the same stroke with a different result. 1—7—7. Henry followed, and Roberts adding 3, was nest clean bowled, both wickets falling to Payne's fine bowling. 2—3—14. Campbell succeeded, and Hen...

IN THE KHALIFA'S CLUTCHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 1 December 1899

IN THE KHALIFA'S CLUTCHES Charles Neufeld writes :—My first spell in prison was one of four years. After cine months the rings and chains were removed from my neck, but the fetters I wore continuously—with the exception of thirteen days—during the whole of my captiviiy. Now, a day to day record of my experience is out of the question, besides being unnecessary —even were it possible to give them, I must, therefore, content myself with a general description of the life passed there, and an idea of the day's routine. When I reached Omdurman, the prison proper consisted of a common cell al ready mentioned (" Abou Hagna"— the house of stone), which was sur. rounded by a large zareba of thorn trees and branches, and standing about 6 feet high. There were thirty guar dians, each armed wiih a "kourbash" (rhinocerous-hide whip) with which to keep their charges in order. There were no sanitary arrangements—not even of tl:e most primitive description. All prisoners had to be fed by their frie...

" Evil to him who wit think*." THEY SAT: That those who declaim so loudly against the Lancers who are returning to their, billets couldn't be' dragged into service with a team of bullocks. That those who say that Britain is after territory and gold-mines are not likely to accept Lord Salisbury's declaration ''that Great Britain seeks no goldfields and no territory other than what she already holds in South Africa.'' That in view of the inclement weather the Victorian Baling "Club should be satis fied with their £10,000 profit on the Spring meeting. That if the British subjects (?) who so frequently make . ignorantly traitorous speeches with regard to the war were under German or Russian rule they would soon be shot or trained to Siberia; and' That these people do not appreciate (and many do not deserve) the priceless liberties they enjoy under the British flag; and That if they were granted permission to volunteer for Boer service the law of self preservation would i'nstanter assert...

The Chronicle. For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrongs that need resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that we can do. COBARGO, FRIDAY, DECEMBER, 1 '99 [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 1 December 1899

When wo hear people profess loyalty to th<j throne of England, and in the next breath proteBt against the action of Parliament in sending a handful of men to support tiieir British comrades In the war now raging in South Afiida, we don't kriow whether to doubt their sincerity or sanity—or bo'k. If this spirit of antagonism is not the result of direct hatred of Eng. land, then it must be the outcome of an astounding and lamentable igno rance of the successive events which have led np to the present war, or it amounts to a perverse and. wilful denial of the wrongs which have for longvyears been inflicted on our fellow British subjects'in the South' African Republic.. In any case, for these calumniators to prate about loyalty is the greatest mockery, and we would be loth to think that there wer...

SOME ASPECTS OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 8 December 1899

SOW ASPECTS OF DEATH. | Most of us have Jheard or read tlie story of the wan condemned to deatb, but allowed, as a special favor, to. cboose tbe method of shuffling' off the mortal coil, who, after due delibera tion, decided that-her would prefer to die of old age. . Yet -this (says- a writer .in- Household Words) perhaps" the easiest mode of exit is among the most uncommon. Rawly, indeed, is there seen a case of death from pure old age. Ia those who live longest some disease is "usually developed. But occasionally tbe body wears itself out, and without a malady or a pain, sinks by an almost imperceptible decay. Tbe organs dwindling toge ther, a p8i'fect harmony is. kept «p in the system. Digestion languishes, the blood diminishes, the heart beats slower. ' Drowsiness increases with the decline of vital force ; life passes into sleep, sleep into death. ."The rest is silence." The first symptom of approaching death with some is a: Etrong presentiment that they arc about to die. After...

Prudent, wise, and religious, as the defender of his king dom, he was the only one in tbe long line of British sovereigns to whom the writers of the present day gave the name of Great.

The British Flag in Africa. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 8 December 1899

The British Flag in Africa It is only a question of time when the British flag will fly overall Africa. In oar days we should see it dominate the whole of the Eastern slope; in those of our children's children it should con trol the continent from end to end Doubtless when this comes about the descendants of those seditious people who now condemn British operations against the Transvaal will flock to the new field of labor, and wrest from its soil as many plums as possible. In the meantime t'ie parents make a noise, and one effect of it is to deprive the greatest of our Colonial Empire buil ders of the credit due to his masterful genius. If we owe it to the detestable Little England party of the last half century the present conflict of races in Africa, we owe it no less to Cecil Rhodes the building of the South Africa Empire, which shall touch the dominions of the Khedive and give us a control from Capetown to Cairo. Be has been described as our unscrupulous Jingo, this lion-hearte...

CHAPTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 8 December 1899

CHAPTER. If Mrs. Everard fancied she could take up the thread of her life where it had been sundered by her marriage, she found herself mistaken. She had left her husband with no very definite idea as to what she would do, except that she would return to her cousin's house and live with her again as be fore. But, after a few days iu the quiet, dull BloDnisbury house with her placid, matter-of faot cousin for her sole companion, the forced calm that she had summoned to .her aid while leaving Hawksworth, left her sudden ly ; and a few days of silent misery and dull hopelessness so broke her down tbafc Evelyn felt she must, in sheer self-defence, take up some pursuit, un 'essshe meant to sink into a very leth argy of despair. There was another reason, too, and a strong one ; she had determined to touch no portion of the money her husband had said should etill be paid her. The bare thought of it made her cheeks flush wiih out-raged pride ; and her own income amounted to barely fifty pou...
