A LONG TRAMP. FROM DUNDEE TO FRERE. FRERE CAMP, Dec. 10. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900
A LONG TRAMP. FROM DUNDEE TO FRERE. BY INDIANS AND KAFFIRS. FRJERE CAMP, Dec. 10. Early this morning a large namber of Indians and Kailirs trooped into camp. They originally trekked from Dundee, and reached Elandslaagte in a distressed condition, having suffered severely through lack of food and hard ships, and were footaore and weary after continuous marching. They were ordered by Com'mandant Erasmus to leave for British territory, as he termed it. Amongst the Indians there were many women in delicate condition and little children of tender years. I con versed by means of an interpreter with a few of the unfortunates. One man told me that they had been on the march during the past three weeks, and were completely done up with: the fatigue and hardships they had under gone. They only had a small quantity of rice, and could not buy anything along the route as the stores were closed. Farmhouses had been looted, but here and there a few eggs were found in benneries and barns. The Kaili...

THE DUBLIN FUSILIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900
THE DUBLIN FUSILIEitRS. Mr. George Douglas, in the "Eng lish Illustrated Magazine," writes thus : To the Dublin Fusiliers, who stormed the Boer position in'the first great light at Glencoe, belongs the glory of establishing the British supre nmacy in India. They were a chief instrument in the hands of Clive; at Wandewaslh and Porto Novo they helped Coote to carry out the great de. signs of .Warren Hastings. Their name is written in,.ptters of blood on every page of our Indian history. It is more than two hundred years since the re giment was raised, but till 1871 it never saw the shores of England. All that ,time it was warring in the East. It had whipped the Dutch once and again ere the charge of Glencoe, but until the day of Glencoe it never fought outside the borders of Asia. Its badges are the Royal Tiger of Ben gal and the Indian Elephant. Round these are the great words, "Plassey," "Mysore," "Buxar,"and "The Carnatic." The long list of victories that glitters on its colours is...

HOBART-SYDNEY TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900
HOBART-SYDNEY TRADEf. The passenger traffic between Sydney and I-lobart has been very disappointing this season, more so, the shipping agents state, than for years past. The number of people travelling between these ports just now (says the "Mercury") does not warrant two steamers of the Oonah and Moura size being employed, hence it is very probable that the latter vessel, which was chartered by Messrs. Huddart, Parker, and Co., will be withdrawn from the service towards the end of January, and the s.s. Tambo will be put in the trade again.
