TROUBLE IN THE TRANSVAAL. AGITATION BY BRITISH RESIDENTS. PREPARING FOR A STRUGGLE. LONDON, December 30. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 3 January 1896
TROUBLE 1H THE TOMSVAAt AGITATION BY BRITISH RESIDENTS. PREPARING FOR A STRUGGLE. ..London, December 30; Serious trouble has broken out in the South African (Transvaal) Republic, arising out of the persistent refusal of the Boer Government to grant the franchise to British residents. The British residents in the South African Republic have formed themselves into ah orffanisafcinn naliflrl thn ' Transvaal National Union,' which has formulated a programme demanding the establishment of a ' true republic,' with a settled constitu tution, an equitable franchise, and the placing of the Dutch and British inhabit ants on a political equality. Many prominent British residents are using their influence -to restrain the leaders of the union. President Kruger has for some time past been quietly making preparations to deal with a rising. He has imported a number of Maxim guop, and has spent £250,000 in erecting fortifications at Pretoria, the capital, and Johannesburg, the chief town in the gol...

Only three bands took part in the band contest at Beechworth on Boxing Day, vis :— Ruther- gien, Chiltern, and Albury. To the great sur prise of the Albnry boys they were placed last on the list by the judge. It is said that one of the committee managing the sports was so dia flatisfied with the decisi3n that he tendered his resignation. Not only are the members of the band surprised at the result, but many persons here with any knowledge of music look npon the judge's verdict as nothing more than a j -ke. At the Yackaudandah sports meeting on the 26th ult., the Saeffield Handicap was won by H. Schn...
THE WAR CLOUD. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 3 January 1896
THE WAR CLOUD. Strange to say the American difficulty has materially improved Australian pros pects. It threatens to put an end to the unnatural stagnation which has so long prevai ed. Moneyed men, instead of embarking (heir ^apical in active in dustrial enterprise, have either been lending it at an lnntutesi nal rate of interest on gilt-edged securities — a prac tice by the way which has caused many securities to be acceptt-d as ' giitedged,' which are by no means sound — or they ha^e employed it in trucking for shared, especialy American railway shares, at constantly increasing prices On paper they were getting very rich, without having produced any; additional wealth, just as our Australian wi eacres a i'ew years ago thought they were gdtting rich by trucking allotments of land from oae to another. The war panic has equelched all this fictitious prosperity. It has bean like an iron rod of reality crushing ruthlessly the fairy tinted bubbles which had been blown by cupidity and se...

MAX O'RELL M AMERICAN RAILWAYS AND HOTELS. ? . — $, ? : ? The Americans, like the French, have no initiative and lack public spirit. The English are the only people who are served by their servants, let the servants be the ministers of the Crown, the directors of public companies, or mere railway porters. m _ _ . ? ! ? . ? i ? T_i ? Ti-.ll- . ? io every one wuuiu iiuuu joum \my_a a salary he says : ' Please to remember that you are the servant of the public.' When the English appoint a new official, high or low, it is a new servant that they add to their household. When the French and the Americans appoint a new official, it is a new master that they give to themselves to snub them and to bully them. For example, when the English railway com panies started running sleeping curs, the public said to them : ' We do not wish to be herded up together like hop-pickers; you will please have the cars divided at night into two parts by a curtain, so that our ladies may be spared the annoyanc...
