When Captain Miles was appointed Miiister of Lands and Works it was expected that he would have endea voured to, reduce to order departments in. the Civil Service. which are in a chronic condition of muddle. The late A. T. Pillinger, with his characteristic good nature, was hardly the -man to tackle a *large order like this, and his health of late years unfitted him for the task. The ex-member for Glamor gan, had everything been au fait, pos sessed the .qualities, vhich his prede cessor lacked; but unfortunately they were combine...
NOTES ON THE CABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 16 January 1900
NOTES ON THE CABLES. (By Rhodesian.) The intelligence received by to-day's cable is meagre, that bearing the most interest being Sir Charles Warren's de parture from Frerc on Friday in an easterly 'direction. By yesterday's cables we received intelligence of the bridge which was thrown across the Tugela near Waterfall being carried away by floods, and it is probable that Sir Charles Warren's object is to at tack Mount Inhlawe, and catch the enemy before they are able to throw another bridge across the stream and re-establish communications with their forces to ;the norlth of Colenso. It will be remembered that yesterday I von-. tired the opinion that it was not im probable that General Buller, with his large force, would make. an attack on both flanks. The one might be a feint, .and it would depend on circum stances whether it was converted into a real attack or not. From the slighlt intelligence that we have receivel: it appears more probable that'Sir Charles ]TWarren's will be the...

Mr. Thomas Hilder was voted to the chair, and in taking his seat he explained that 'the meeting had been called for the purpose of talking over the best method of raising money towards the patriotic fund. After the subject had been well considered and a few suitable songs sung, Mr. Tyson was deputed collector for the district. A collection was also taken up in the hall, which was so warmly responded to that in a few minutes the amount of £24 2s was handed in to the treasurer (Mr. Hilder) for the, Lord Mayor's Mansion House fund. After the National Anthem had been sung the meeting broke up. Mr. and Mrs. T. Hilder, with their usual kind- ness, lent their piano for the occasion.

The two contingents have been kept constantly at work on outpost duty. Their reconnaissances have been pushed across the Orange Free State border, and with such excellent effect that the Free State Boers have aban- doned a considerable belt of' country within their own territory. Led by squadrons of the 9th and 12th Lancers, under Colonels Babington and Pilcher respectively, the Victorian Mounted Rifle Company (Captain.D. M'Leish), -Queenslanders (Lieutenant Colonel Percy H.

A PRIZE FOR THE COLONIALS. APPROPRIATED BY THE QUEENS- LANDERS. In their travels in the enemy's coun try the Queenslanders surprised a party of twelve Boers about to enjoy a well cooked repast. On the approach of the colonials the would-be diners, their servants, and cooks hurriedly left the farm and es caped. The Queenslanders of course appropriated the dinner. [In Saturday's issue it was stated that Lieutenant-Colonel Percy H. Ricardo and four of the Queensland troopers had been captured by the enemy. This has proved to be in correct, as the Queenslanders were en gaged in the above reconnaissance. The officer' captured by the Boers was Cap tain W. F. Ricardo, of the Royal Horse Guards (the Blues), which with the 1st and 2nd Life Guards formed the com posite regiment of the Household Bri gade, and was ,in action for the first time on the 7th inst. A successful re connaissance was carried out on that date on the enemy's right flank, and the Boers were forced to retire. The Guards, h...

BOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 17 January 1900
BOWLS. (By Leader.) The weather during the week has been all that bowlers could desire, and the attendance on the local greens has been unusually large. On Friday afternoon I noticed' Mr. Gibb, of Syd ney, having a game on the N.T.C.A. green. I am pleased to note that the players of both clubs have shaken themselves up a little this week, and got to work on the tournament games. On the N.T.C.A. green several matches have taken place every evening, and the greatest surprise of the lot was the defeat of D. Scott and Hobkirk at the hands of Unsworth and Rooke to the tune of 31-0. Scott awed five, but only scored three, so has still a bit to get to wipe the handicap off. Rooke was the only player of the four who showed any form at all, and fairly eclipsced any of his previous perf:r mances, his skipper having nothing to do but pit in a block or two. Ho.> kirk was not at his usual, and Pcott! well, the least I say of his play the better. The whole game was completed in 10 heads. Thi g...

He thinks it is In some other portion of the house; but among all the deeds and papers and plans relating to Penharva, we have found no clue.

But speaks always with regret and sad ness of voice, as though his heart was not with the intention. Yet what charm can there be here to keep a fine London gentleman content?
