NOTES BY "ROWLOCK." [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
NOTES BY "ROWLOCK." c I desire to rectify several slight errors that crept into print last Satur- day. In my reference to the Open to All Pairs at Mersey regatta Messrs. Fox and Digney are credited with winning, &nbsp; instead of the brothers T. and A. Dig- ney. The name F. King in the win- ning Open to All Four crew should be F. Ring; and lastly the word "long" boat was erroneously inserted in place of "losing" boat in the report of &nbsp; Strahan regatta. I also have to add in connection with the last-named event that Messrs. J. F. Atkinson and R. Muldoon's protest against the win- &nbsp; ners of the Open to All Pairs, on the &nbsp; grounds of a foul, was upheld, and the &nbsp; prize awarded to this couple. A rumour has been afloat for the &nbsp; past two weeks to the effect that Bea- &nbsp; consfield regatta would be held on the &nbsp; 24th inst., instead of Easter Saturday, &nbsp; as heretofore. I placed lit...

The Parramatta correspondent of Sydney "Daily Telegraph" wsrites:--As showing how the Boers are misled' by the leaders as regards the ultimate result of the war, Sergeant Luke, now 'with the Lancers at the front, gives a good illustration in a letter he writes to his brother at Baulkham Hills. He says:-"Whilst escorting a Boer pri soner we got into conversation as to honw the war would end. The Boers had strong ideas on the question, and thought that success would be with the Boers' arms.. 'Why man,' said Ser geant Luke, 'you have no show what ever of winning.' 'Oh,' repilied the Boer, 'I don't know so much about that; our 'baas' tells us that 20,000 Britishers have been killed, and only 100 Boeers.' "

We rode with the troops to Arundel, andt here we heard there were Boers about, and the New Zealanders pusheu on across the big plain and pulled up under a steep hill. There. the men dis mounted and went up the hill to re cannoitre. The Carbineers went to one frank and the Mounted Infantry to another. My acquaintance and I de cided to follow the New Zealanders, and it was just as well we did, as in a few minutes there was a roar from a big hill about one and a half miles off, and a shell fell between the New Zealandera and the Mounted Infantry, and at last we knew we were face to face ...

THIE N.S.W. CONTINGEcNT. ENSEiLIN, Monday, Dec. 11. Last night's alarm was not followed up by the Boers, and after remaining in position for about a couple of hours the Australians returned to their tents, turning in fully dressed ready for action, and leaving strong pickets at exposed points. The Mounted Rifles remained out all night, and searched the whole country round for a radius of four or five miles. A party of Boers, estimated at from 30 to 50, crossed the railway north of us within a mile of the camp, apparently making east into the Free State, but so far as the enemy was concerned the night passed without further incident About 11 an invasion of another kind took place, in the arrival of the New South Wales infantry from Capetown. This contingent reached port on Wed nesday by the r teamer Aberdeen, and were received by Lieutenant Reid, of Tasmania, who was left at Capetown to meet and conduct them to the regi ment which it was ordered they should join, under Colonel Hoad, ...
NORTH-WESTERN FARMERS' ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 January 1900
NORTH-WESTERN FAR1MERS' ASSOCIA-. TION. The above report under date Saturday:-. Potatoes. - Market operations dre at present limited to local needs, ' and a small demand for West Coast. Ex.port trade is not likely to spring up until about the 26th inst., as just now potatoes are cheaper in, all Inter colonial markets than here; but early crops are rapidly being reduced, and we hope to see a fair demand for Tasmanians to wards the end of this month. Chaff.--Deliveries are small, and parcels of prime would sell readily if forwarded promptly. Inferior is plentiful and slow of sale. Wheat.--Market very quiet, and -quota tions nominal, pending prospects of new crop. Oats.-Market is firm for prime stout oats, which are becoming very scarce. Holders will do well to get their surplus forward before ne'w crop is threshed. Tartarians are quiet, and not in much de mand. Clean lines will, however, sell fafrly well. Algerians are in better request, and should be forwarded promptly. Dairy Produce...

THE FIRST CONTINGENT. Mr. W. J. Lambie, of the "Age," has forwarded a letter under date Belmont, December 9: AUSTRALIANS IN GOOD HEART. Captain Bruche, of Victcria, passec) through by train this morning. Colonel 1Umphelby, we hear, has been installed press censor at Ca.petown. The Canadian contingent arrived this morn ing, and camped here, being greeted with cheers from the Australians, which were reciprocated. They wear khaki helmets, and altogether closely resemble the Imperial troops, without distinctive features. They are a fine stamp of men. The Australians have rapidly re covered their elasticity, and are merry enough to-day. A novelty to them was the presence of many farm ostriches strolling about the camp. They could not keep their hands off the birds, which were soon stripped of the few feathers they had. The weather is be coming warmer, but cool nights bring welcome restoration, and the general health is good. Some of the Tasmanians seem to feel the heat most, this being t...
