PLUCKY DEFENDERS. THE ENEMY'S PLEASANTRY. MAFEKING, Dec. 4. (Reuter's Special Service.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 11 January 1900
PLUCKY DEFENDERS. TH'PE ENEMLY'S PLEASANTRY. MAPEKING, Dec. 4. (Reuter's Special Service.) Since my last despatch of the 30th very little of importance has happened. On Saturday night the enemy fired a half-dozen parting volleys as a sort of finale before Sumday's truce. A' chemist named J. E. Wormes, working in his dispensary, was struck by a Mauser bullet, which penetrated the galvanised iron wall and wounded him in tho shoulder. The wound is not serious. The siege has now developed a new phase. Finding it somewhat costly in -human life to storm the enemy's trenches at the point of the bayonet, our outposts now reply to the enemy's gradual advancement in trenches by constant sapping and pushing forward of rifle pits to enfilade those of the enemy. Our advanced sharpshooters on the eastern side of the town are now within range of the enemy's 100 pounder, and cause the gun's crew con siderable uneasiness. Our extreme out lying trenches are within 400 yards of those of the enemy. The...

THE WAR SPIRIT AT WARATAH. WARATAH, Tuesday. Mr. J. A. Tilley, who enrolled at Ul verstone for South Africa, had been working on the Bischoff mine for the the last 12 or 18 months. He is every inch a soldier, and a steady, manly fellow as well, and much respected. He left here for Ulverstone, and as his acceptance was uncertain we gave him no send-off. However, his patriotism and courage are almost universally applauded, and should another contin gent be required a very large number of fine young men are anxious to follow his example. The war spirit is thoroughly roused,but our men want training, and now is the time to start a volunteer corps here and another at the Magnet mine. We have a quali fled oflicer in Mr. D. Jones, and also plenty of men ready. Will the com mandant take the matter up, and sup ply arms and ammunition?' If our men were put into training without delay they would be ready for the next call to the scene of war. Mr. Tilley has been sent by post to-diay a very pre...

LAST FIGHT WITH'1I THE MA III)i. WINGATE'S BRILLIANT VICTORY. (From the "Argus" Correspondent.) LONDON. Dec. 1.. Colonel Wingate's brilliant exploits In the very home of the Mabdist cult, t some 180 miles south of Khartouin,have , finally stamped out that gigantic and e cruel. imnposture. Mahdism is dead. 3 True, Osman Digna remains, for he escaped the crowning disaster to his creed with that "eel-like skill" which has characterised him from his earlier appearances in the field. In the ma jority of the campaigns in which this artful saint has taken part be has usually retired to pray at the precise moment when the fighting was hot test. His devotions began rather early in the final action of last week: for we are told that he le'it the battle field when the firing commenced. He has not since been heard of, but as he has no following there Is reason for hoping that he may yet he cap tured. The description of the clo-sing scene of the campaign is very simple. On Wednesday, the 22nd in...

INTERCOLONIAL. rASMANIAN PRESS ASSOCIATION-.. COPYRIGHT. FEDERAL BIFLE TEAM. MELBOURNE, We:inesday. There is not much likelihood of an Australian rifle team being sent to Eng land this year to compete in the Bisley matches. Before coming to anly de finite decision Mr. Melville, Minister of Defence, has decided to .ascertain the views of the other Governments. Both Queensland and South Australia have now ecpressed readiness to contribute their share towards £2000 on a popu lation basis, but Mr. Lyne, Premier of New South Wales, has questioned whether, under present circumstances, It would be advisable to send a team to England, and, furthermore, he thought if the colonies were tok contri bute on a population basis they should have representation in the team in the same proportion.
A TASMANIAN LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 11 January 1900
A TASMANIAN LETTER. FROM THE ORANGE RIVER. A coastal paper publishes the fol lowing letter from Private A. Ballan tyne, a Penguin volunteer, who forms one of the first Tasmanian contingent. The letter was dated Monday, Decem .her 4, at the military camp, Orange River, and in it the writer says: The Doers are close, several of their patrols having been seen by our sen tries and patrolling parties, but we are ready for them. Last night we slept in our clothes, as a surprise was expected; to-day also a descent on the camp is anticipated, if they suc ceed in evading the sentries. A party of us are going to the hills on sentry duty to-night, and are jubilant. It is very probable they will attempt to attack us; if so, they may look out. They are a treacherous race ; firing with one hand with the white flag in the other ; and firing on ambulance trains and parties, are common occu rances with them.; but we are getting too sharp for them now. Two Boer nurses walked up to two of our wounded ...

"When they. got close they got down and fired, and then we returned the compliment with a volley, four of them dropped, and the rest scampered off, we had another go at them, but they were a long way off.
