THE BATTLE OF MAGERSFONTEIN. A THRILLING SPECTACLE. DESPATCH FROM THE FIELD. The "Age" Special War Correspondent. BATTLE FIELD, NEAR MODDER RIVER, Monday, Dec. 11. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
T-IE BATTLE OF MAGERSFONTEIN. A THRI-ILLING SPECTAC~UL. DESPATCH .FROM THE FIELI)D. BY.F. W. WILKINSON, The "Age" Speclal War C'orrespon'dent. BATTLE FIELD, NEAR MODDER RIVER, Monday, Dec. 11. I reached here jist in the nick of time to see what will no doubt be one of the most interesting engagements of the campaign on this side. I crossed the new bridge over the river just as day dawned, and heard the roar of can non in the distance, abtout five miles away. I set oll in hot pursuit, follow ing the direction of the cannonade, and passed over the ground where the last, battle took place, seeing the trencheb where the Boers had been posted. Then I came up with an apparently inter minable string of mule wagons waiting orders to advance. They were in a perfect line, about two miles in length, with baggage and equipment for a whole army. Evidently, then, this was no mere reconnaissance in force. It was actually the advance of the relief column on Kimberley, but the way had to be cleared ...

FIGHT AT KIMBERLEY. SHARP ARTILLERY DUEL. ("Cape Times.") KIMBERLEY, Dec. 9. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
FIGHT AT KIMI'BIM RLEY. SHARP ARTILLERY DUEL. ("Cape Times.") KIMBERLEY, Dec. 9. (By Despatch Rider to Modder River.) Just before daybreak a strong patrol, under Major Chamier, of the Royal Ar tillery, with six guns of the Diamond fields Artillery, moved out in the direc tion .of Otto's Kopje to make. a de monstration against the enemy's forces at the intermediate pumping-station and Ka.mfer's dam. Our guns opened upon the latter position at 4.30, and speedily discovered the presence of the enemy's lield-guns, which fired from a well-sheltered position on debris heaps. Our artillery unlimbered in the open, and the duel went on with considerable vigour for over three hours. About 7.30 our guns planted several shots -right into the Boers' cordite gun, and same Cape I'olicemen, who were in a most advantageous position for seeing, are convinced that some serious damage was done either to the gun or to the men serving it. This afternoon the miniature duel was resumed under the same condi...
FEELING IN CAPE COLONY. CAPETOWN, Dec. 15. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
FEELING IN CA:PE COLONY. (From the "Age" special correspen dent.) CAPETOWN. Dec. 15. The military inaction which. prevailed fronm the date of the. battle of Modder Rivor (November 28) to December 10 was to the public hbcre quite inexplic able. General Buller had got to the Frere camp in Natal; General Methuen was in possession&lt; of Modder River within striking distance of Kimberley. General Gatacre was at Molteno close to the strongholl of the Boers at Storm berg, and General French' was at Arundel, a few miles only from Coles berg and the Free State border, hut no thing was done. It was rumoured that Generals Methuen, French., andl Gatacre were to make combined move ments on Norval's Pont, and had orders to rendezvous at Bloemfontein. Au other rumour was that a force had been detached from General Methuen s column, and was working round west of Kimiberley, but neither of ,these rumours was correct; but on Sunday last, hobwever, something totally uae' pocted did happen, th...

WAR IN SOUTH AFRICA. A PRESBYTERIAN DIVINE. ON A DAY OF HUMILIATION AND PRAYER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
WAR IN SOUTIf AFRICA. c-4--- A. PRESBYTERIAN DIVINE. ON A DAY OF HUMILIATION AND PRAYER. It was perhaps a not inappropriate ,close of the week (says the Capetown correspondent of the Sydney "Daily Telegraph), that the Dutch Reformed Church throughout the colony should be engaged in"HIIumiliation and Prayer" at the behest of the Moderator, who answers to the archbishop in the Eng lish Church. The principal preacher in the principal church, the Rev. J. G. Steytler, known locally as "The Pope," from his high and mighty attitude, re peated a many times previous offence, and made his address anti-British and Iro-Boer. He declared the war to be unrighteous and unjust on the part of the British, and expressed his intention to repeat this assertion at every avail able opportunity. On the other hand, a Presbyterian minister, the Rev. S. J. Hamilton, preaching at Stellenbosch, in this neighbourhood, has been telling his Dutch Reformed Church brethren some home truths. Here is the text of his ...
