NOTES ON THE CABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900
NOTES ON THE CABLES. (By "Rhodesian.") There is grim irony in the item in to-day's cables that the Transvaalers are forcing the Free Slaters into the positions of danger, and that the heaviest loss is falling on them. This is not the first time nelws of the kind has been received, and, coupled with the fact that Cronje threatened to shoot the "Staters" if they did not stand firm, it would appear as if the war had only to continue a little longer for the two Republics to -be .alt each other's throat. There is a vast difference be tween accepting an invite to a picnic to Maritzburg at the expense of the British and being placed in the fore front of the battle with a Transvaal rifleman behind and one of White's Maxims in front.
