"HEAVY LOSSES." [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900
"HEAVY LOSSES." It seems to have become the habit of our papers when commenting on our little battles in the Transvaal to speak of our losses as being "very heavy." As a matter of fact the actual number of the killed and wounded at the affairs of Elandslaagte, Grasspan, etc., have been light, the' proportion of those placed hors de combat being about one-fortieth of the men engaged. Selecting a few great battles, with average slaughter, we find that the pro portion of killed and wounded to com batants, including both sides, was at Jena, one-sixth : Austerlitz, one seventh ; Solferino, one -eleventh ; Prague, one-eighth. At Woerth the Gcrmans, out of about 130,000. 1ost 10,000, or, say, one-thirteentll; but the French, out-numbered three to one, could not make such a stand as to constitute a fair average. ' At Vion_ ville, Mars-le-Tour, 10,000 fell on earh side, about one-eighth of those abso lutely engaged. At Grav'eltto, the German chief of staff put his ii'umliers at 180,000, his ...

SAUER'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900
SAUER'S ADVICE. The authorised versions of Mr. Saiuer's recent appeal to the men of Dordrecht to remain loyal are (says "Cape Times") singularly silent in re spect of one of the gems of the ora tion. Happily, a correspondcnt of the "East London. Dispawtch" supplies' the missing portion, and very interesting and instructive indeed are the sen tences. Mr. Sauer, in the course of his speech, read a telegram from Mr. Schreiner, and this is how he intro duced the message:-"You all know Mr. Schreiner. He- is one of our1 own na tion; he sympathises with you; he prays for you; and his whole thought is for your interests. Now he wires me this morning that the Republican forces have received two very severe de feats-one at Belmont and the other at Grass Pan. I implore you to consider to weigh this intelligence. Let me ap peal to you as sensible men. Any little help that you may give is but a drop in the ocean. There can he only one result. The English must and will win. For every British sold...

The despatches were conveyed through the Boer lines by an adventurous pressman under cover of darkness. TIT FOR TAT. a During the siege two 121/2-pounders a have been ,entrenched on the hlill known c in military circles as Helpmakaar Post, and they have dlone excellent service, exercising a salutary and repressive in- I Iluence upon the Beers who assembled at times in the ndighbourhood, of Lom bard's Nek. These 'two guns should become notable. They formed' part of "Dr. Jim's" artillery when he executed his raid. They were captured by the I Boers at. Doornkop. At Elandslaagte they were used against the Imperial troops, but not foair l:ong, .as they were taken by our men in that engage ment.

Upon the minutes being read, Mr. Talbot took exception to the wording of that portion wherein he was made to say that he did not approve of the contents of Mr. Forster's letter to the Chief Inspector of Rabbits.

CHAPLAINS FOR THE TROOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900
CHAPLAINS FOR THE TROOPS. Bishop Montgomery has been ap proached by a good many to know .what should be done for the spiritual inte rests of our soldiers in South Africa, and especially when their number is to be increased. At first (says the "Church News") the bishop offered to send a chaplain with the first contingent, but afterwards hesitated till the situation. was clearer. The Bishop has now written to the Archbishop of Capetown for information, but meanwhile the position seems to be as follows:-The English papers announce that up to the month of November eleven Church of England military chaplains had been ordered to South Africa. Further, that the Commander-in-Chief had been instructed to engalge as many more clergy as he though Tit from the ranks of the clergy of the dioceses in the Transvaal and the Orange Free.
