Simple-minded Kruger. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900
.Simple-minded Kruger. DR. LBYDS declares that Presi- dent Kruger wants peace but will never sacrifice the independence of the Boer Republics. Kruger also, the same reliable authority informs us, is willing to submit the whole dispute to arbitration. Taking these statements word for word, they are highly ridiculous assertions, but of "course their ob j ject is if possible to excite the ! active sympathy of other Euro-1 pean nations with the reckless and misguided Boer in his con- test with Britain. Kruger would have nothing to lose, and every- thing to gain by arbitration ; the certainty is that both Republics are to be annexed to the British Empire, and if the Imperial authorities, under the circum- stances, agreed to any compro- mise on that point they would strike a blow at their own prestige that would have a world-wide significance. There is no denying now, in the face of the facta which have come out that Kruger, Steyn, Hofmeyr, and probably Schreiner also, hoped that the issu...
PASSING NOTES. The Future of the Boer States. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900
PASSING NOTES. -? The Future of the Boer States. THE London Times foreshadows the future position of the two Boer Republics in South Africa. On the conclusion of the war they will be converted into Crown Colonies, and will subsequently be merged into one Federation with the other British Colonies in South Africa. It is not stated that this information is official, but it is clear that nothing else could be expected from the com- mencement Of the war Previ- ously, Britain claimed a suzerainty over the Transvaal, so that from that point of vie^r it would be nothing short bf ridiculous for any agreement .to be come to whicji left any doubt upon that matter. But the position, will be ¿bj|^^ the «Cr; ^^^^^^n^^^^^bôioSy aspired to throw off- the power of Britain from the whole of South Africa ; after a most severe and bloody war, the might of the Ampire compels the Boers to yield to their fate, it would be the height of absurdity to leave them ! anv shadow bf independence, j VfE^f^^t ^/^e...
Our Fighting Strength. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900
Our Fighting Strength. TSE Premier drew the long bow somewhat when he told the peo- ple of Hay that New South Wales could put 200,000 men in the field ; but he modified that state- ment when he said 90,000 were fully able to bear arms. Even this total is pretty tall iu a popu- lation of 1,300,000, men, women, and children, and if the unfor- tunate necessity ever arose there is no doubt that most Australians would shoulder a rifle just as most Boers are doing now. But Mr. Lyne was on safer ground when he said that all school-boys should be drilled, and receive military instruction, 6o that when they grow up it would not take much to lick them into shape, if the necessity arose. A certain proportion of them too "would, after leaving school, join some volunteer force, and thus be kept constantly in drill, and ever ready for the unfortunate moment should it arrive. We certainly do not want the. system in vogue in Germany \vhere"every man has to remain under arms, doing nothr ing else fo...
Albury's Cheek. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900
Albury's Cheek. THE Mayor of Albury recently wired to London that "the pro- posed Federal City " is overjoyed at the successes of British troops. This is very absurd; suppose every town in the colony who had any claim to that distinction ' were to do likewise, they would make themselves the laughing stock of everyone who bothered about reading the bumptious as-* surance. Besides, who ever pre; posed Albury as the Federal City, except the people of the town and certain interested Victorians ? j Her river just at present happens to be dry, so the least said about it the better, and now that the summer is about over, the rési- dents can talk for the next nine months about their glorious cli- mate, glibly explaining away the awkward truth about the height the thermometer rises to during the summer months. When the Federal site comes to W decided Carcoar or Molong will be a good bit closer to it than hot, dusty, drought-stricken Albury.

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900
CRICKET. : Oar cricket team has been greatly weakened by the loss of Cropper and Campbell ; the latter, however, is to retara shortly. In the new arrivals we have found a good wicket-keeper in Alpen, and a very fair bat in Gregg. The recreation ground is to be done up almost immediately, and we shall have a much better chance for practice than is the case at present. In the new ground there will be two practice pitches, one match wicket and two tennis coutts.

FROM OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900
TROM OUR EXCHANGES. The Queen's household consists of a little less the 10Q0 persons. In China to salute anyone by taking off one's hat is a deliberate insult The Queen has had altogether 127 pet dogs. At one time she had forty at once. At Maryborough (Victoria) the dead body of an old miner was found, part of the body having been eaten by dogs. The revenue of the colony up to Tues- day showed ait increse of £437,492 over the corresponding period of last year. The population of Western Australia at the end ol February waB 173,828 against 172,257 at the end of January. It takes, it is said, the tusks of 75,300 elephants a year to supply the worlds handles. One hundred years ago it was con- sidered a wonderful achievement for 10 nen to manufacture 48.000 pins a day. Now three men make 7,500,030 pins in the same time. Four hundred and thirty-five dollars (£87) was collected at a single recitation of the *' Abeent Minded Beggar," at Los Angeles (Cal.), the largest sum ever ob- tained at...

ORIGINAL POETRY. ,-:-* GENERAL WAUCHOPE (Magersfontein); Away where the burning sunlight gleams Afar in the dreary desert land, Calmly he sleeps from bullet and shell, - Sleeps he-the fearless chief of the band. Uncovered their heads, blinding their tears, Gathering round, they laid him to rest, " AU that was left" of that gallant Bri- gade, He, in God's home, the bravest and best. Over the desert-echoing fur Piped the wpirl notes ' Lochaber no more ; " Daring to calm, 'mid doublings and fears, Stoutest of heartB on Africa s shore. From the still form, fearless they gazed. Woe to the slayer, guard in? thc height, " Africa's L»ou," thinning for m ire, They, for their vengeance, justice, and right. Onward th&lt;y rush-jaws set like et^el. Grasping their rifles, onward they pour. God of the battle «till in lheir lead, While in their ears ' Lochaber no more." Far in the lend of the heather and bell Mourns she her hero-chief of that band ; Over the Highlands, mournful and'drear, ...
