NOTES ON THE CABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
NOTES ON THE CABLES. (By "Rhodesian.") It has always seemed a remarkable circumstance that the Boers should have made up their minds to cast aside their usual role and attack Ladysmith. The most probable reason seemed to be that they were beginning to feel the pressure slowly but surely applied by General Bullcr. Information received to-day from the "Standard" correspon dent shows that this was not the reason, but that the course was force.l on them by President Kruger. It wa. also from his fertile brain that the idea emanated of putting the Flee Staters to bear the brunt of the fighting; and as far as we can judge, right well the F'ree Staters did their w.rkl, ac uillly jeering the Transvaalers when they re tired, decliining to face a counter-attack. Without doubt the ighting must have been terrific. The "Daily Mail" corre spondent estimates that 20,000 Boers were engaae-].

The march and embarkation were ac complished without accident, though several saddles were emptied owing to some of the horses playing up. On the whole, 'however, the proceedings were excellently carried out, and the men heartily cheered as they rode thorough the streets to Port Melbourne. In making arrangements for shipping the horses Colonel Price insisted on walking them on board. Even though the pier was crowded with Iraflic and the vessel lay at the remoste end of it,all he asked for was that there should be no locomotives shunting about. He had his way, although it filled the pier master with. apprehension. It proved, however, to be the right course, for within two hours every one of the 300 mounts on board, and there was ...
