The Bullet Proof Coat. SOME SMART SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 5 June 1894

The Bulled Proof Ooat. SOME SMART SHOOTING. The Berlin correspondent of. tho Daily JVeirs.says : — The Berlin police liavo as yet peri-istently refused to give Herr Dowe, the _ inventor of the ' bullet proof ' coat, ' permission to test bis invention on himselF — at least publicly.

Thieving Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 8 June 1894

Thieving Soldiers. The ruffians who stole the money which had been sent by King Loben gula with his offer of submission to Major Forbes have got off lightly with 14 years' penal servitude. These scoundrels should have been hanged for their crime. But for their action many hundreds of natives would have been saved from destruction, and Ma jor Wilson's column would never have ucyu anuiuiitti,cu. XLUpriOUiimUIJ o lur 14 years is no punishment for a crime whose consequences were so appalling. It led to the only British reverse sus tained in the war, and it compromised seriously the British name. Even when dealining with savages the lawa of nations should be observed by civilised powers, and the impression left upon the Matabele by the recep tion accorded to their overtures of peace must have been the reverse of complimentary to English faith and honor. In the eyes of the civilised world the affair is full of scandal, and throws discredit upon the character of British troops. It is only ...
