THE TRANSPORT DIFFICULTY. A GREAT DELAY. LONDON, Jan. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
THE TRANSPORT DIFFICULTY. A GREAT DELAY. LONDON. Jan. 1. The great delay in providing trans- port equipments is hampering Generals Buller's and Methuen's mobility. It is asserted that sufficient wagons and mules to furnish the first army corps with two days' supplies from the base of operations will only be ready in the middle of January. The second line equipment, furnish- ing the first army corps with supplies for three days, has not been provided, unless it is obtainable locally. It is feared that there will be great difficulty in providing transport equip- ment for later divisions and volun- teers. In the opinion of the "Daily Mail" the reluctance of Sir Michael Hicks- Beach, the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer, to provide money before the declaration of war is responsible for the delay. Great Britain declines to purchase wagons in the United States, fearing that it would raise some international objections. Orders will, however, im- mediately be placed with various firms of coach...
LAUNCESTON PEOPLE APPRECIATE A GOOD THING. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
LAUNCESTON PEOPLE APPRECIATE A GOOD THING. Everybody has their hour of trouble, But people having any irritation of the skin Have many hours of trouble. Nothing so annoying, nothing so irritat- ing. It's a hard and trying position. Leave it alone and you can hardly bear the misery. Relief and cure have come at last. Launceston has put it to the test. Doans Ointment cures every form of skin irritation. People at home are learning that this is so. Mr. George Taylor, who carries on business as a general dealer at No. 3 Pat- terson-street, this city, informs us as follows:-"I used Doan's Ointment for, and I am very pleased to say that it com- pletely cured me of, irritating piles, a trouble I had suffered from for some con- siderable time. At times the irritation would be so great as to be almost un- bearable; for instance, when I became heated, or in warm weather. But Doan's Ointment, which I obtained at Messrs. Fairthorne and Son's, Chemists, St. John street, gave me instant relief, a...

ORANGE FREE STATE. POSITION OF THE PRESIDENT. Jan. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
ORANGE FREE STATE. POSITION OF THE PRESIDENT. Jan. 1. Herr Steyn's brother Matt, with 800 followers, has quitted the Boer com- mando, having previously reminded the President of the Orange Free State that he was authorised to intervene exclusively in the interest of peace. Matt now repudiates his brother's action in joining in the hostilities, and urged that there is a great danger of the Republic being confiscated by Great Britain if the Free Staters con- tinued to take part in the war.

A GERMAN MILITARY CRITIC ON THE CAMPAIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
A GERMAN MILITARY CRITIC w ON THE CAMPAIGN. &nbsp; "A German officer" writes to "The Times" from Berlin, on November 14, &nbsp; as follows:- &nbsp; "Aided by a thorough personal, &nbsp; knowledge of the military conditions &nbsp; existent in England, and that to an extent perhaps possessed by very few &nbsp; non-British oflicers, notwithstanding &nbsp; the latter's proneness to most exhaus- &nbsp; tive criticism, I am naturally following &nbsp; your military operations in the Trans- &nbsp; vaal with the greatest interest. So &nbsp; much the more as circumstances have, during the past few years, afforded me &nbsp; an accurate insight into the affairs of &nbsp; South Africa. Several points occur to &nbsp; me from a military side which I am &nbsp; persuaded are not sufficiently taken in- &nbsp; to account in England. I take it as &nbsp; granted that yo...
BOER POWDER AND SHOT. ENOUGH FOR A TEN YEARS' WAR. ("Daily Mail," Nov. 8.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
BOER POWDER AND SHOT. &nbsp; * at ENOUGH FOR A TEN YEARS' &nbsp; WAR. &nbsp; ("Daily Mail," Nov. 8.) &nbsp; Most of the ammunition used by the &nbsp; Boers is of German or French manu- &nbsp; facture. A comparatively very small &nbsp; quantity was made in England, and &nbsp; an equally small proportion was manu- &nbsp; factured at the Transvaal Government works, near Pretoria. A vast amount of mystery and se- crecy surrounded the Government pow- der factory, as it was called, and no one was allowed to visit it, or even is to approach within half a mile of the enclosed buildings, without a very extra &nbsp; special permit. The factory was entirely run by Ger- &nbsp; mans, and curiously enough the head thereof was a Mr. Kruger, who was &nbsp; always careful to assert that he was no relation whatsoever to the Presi- &nbsp; dent. This seems quite likely, as he &nbsp; was a ver...
RETURN OF THE REV. DR. FITCHETT. THE EMPIRE OF TO-DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
RETURN OF THE REV. DR. FITCHETT. THE EMPIRE OF TO-DAY. The Rev. W. H. Flitchett, LL.D.,has returned to Melbourne. Many cour- teous attentions were shown by literary men to Dr. Fitchett in London, and his views of men and things in the old world will (says the "Argus") be of interest to Australians generally. "London," Dr. Fitchett says, "was certainly very kind to me; but I am glad to tread Australian soil and breathe Australian air again. The new world lacks the scale and wealth of the old world, but it has many compensa- tions." What most impressed you in Eng- land? "The strength and warmth of Eng- lish sentiment towards the colonies generally, and towards Australia in particular. Australia is the youngest child of the Imperial household; it has given the motherland least trouble; and I am tempted to say we are the pet- not to say the spoilt child-of the Eng- lish-speaking household. There is dis cernible in. English sentiment towards the colonies, too, a certain strain of pride w...
The Examiner [PUBLISHED DAILY.] TUESDAY, JANUARY 2, 1900. TO CORRSPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
[PUBLISHED DAILY.] TUESDAY, JANUARY 2, 1900. TO CORRESPONDENTS. Correspondents and contributors will oblige by not addressing matter for publication to individual members of our staff. Letters containing press matter should be sent to the Editor, or, if for our special columns, to those in charge of them, as, for instance, "Flamingo," "Pakena," "Argus," etc. All business communications, including advertisements, should be addressed to the Business Manager. Among the correspondence which reached us by the late mail are some pamphlets issued by a body which as- sumes the title of the "Manchester Transvaal Committee." When we say that the bulk of them are reprints from the "Manchester Guardian" it will be readily understood that they are Pro- Boer in their tone; In fact, they put the case of the Boer as it appears to their sympathisers in the old country. It would, perhaps, be difficult to find a more striking illustration of the free- dom enjoyed under the British flag than the public...
OUR "TOMMY ATKINS" FUND. "HE'S AN ABSENT-MINDED BEGGAR." ILLUSTRATED PUBLICATION. TO-MORROW. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
OUR "TOMMY ATKINS" FUND. "HE'S AN ABSENT-MINDED BEGGAR." ILLUSTRATED PUBLICATION. TO-MORROW. The success which has attended the publication of Mr. Rudyard Kipling's patriotic poem in other places as a means of raising money for the Pa- triotic Fund has induced the proprie- tor of the "Examiner" to fall into line. The conditions laid down by the "Daily Mail," which purchased the manuscript for £250, were that news- papers who reproduced the poem should contribute five guineas to the fund. This has been done by all re- putable journals, and we are, by the outgoing mail, sending a cheque for the amount to the proprietors of the "Daily Mail." The poem will be reproduced by us TO-MORROW. It will be well printed on toned paper, and will be illustrated with a picture of the TASMANIAN CONTINGENT and vignettes of THE OFFICERS. It will also have portraits of "TOMMY ATKINS," &nbsp; "COOK'S SON," "DUKE'S SON," "SON OF A HUNDRED KINGS," and will form an interesting souvenir of the war. R...
CURRENT TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
CURRENT TOPICS Our Christmas Supplement.-That our Christmas supplements have ob- tained a widespread popularity is evi- dent from letters we are receiving from the other colonies. Here is a sample, from Christchurch:-"I had the plea- sure to receive a copy of your last Christmas number, and was delighted with it, it being undoubtedly the best publication that has come under my notice for Christmas 1898. Presuming you purpose continuing the issue this year, I will be glad of a copy, on re- ceipt of which I shall send you P.O. order for the amount, whatever it may be." Says the "Grafton Clarion":-"An art production.-The best thing we have seen in the form of a colonial Christmas newspaper production is un- doubtedly that which reached us the other day from the office of the Laun- ceston (Tasmanian) 'Examiner.' It is really excellent in every way, not only the illustrations but also the letter- press being most artistically produced on fine toned paper. It is full of views of the beaut...
THE ORIGIN OF THE NEWSPAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
THE ORIGIN OF THE NEWSPAPER. In the Leipzig "Daheim" Ernest Nie- mann has an interesting study of the origin of the newspaper, says the "New York Nation." The well-known "Acta Diurna," in Rome in the time of Caesar, has no historical connection whatever with latter-day newspaper- dom. Modern journalism is not of Roman, but chiefly of Germanic, origin. In fact, what are now newspapers are really only developments of a kind of circulating letters which, as early as the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, passed between business houses prin- cipally in the interests of trade. These "Zeitungen" or "Tidinge" were writ- ten, but not printed. In the greater centres of population were found men &nbsp; who made it their occupation to send out these reports, usually to business houses, but often also to political and other authorities. Of the famcus &nbsp; "Fugger Zeitung" 28 volumes are pre- served in the University Library at Heidelberg. These written circular letters, both ...

GENERAL CABLES. LONDON, Dec. 31. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900

Ben Haim, an Algerian Jew, has been sentenced to five years' imprisonment, and six others to shorter periods, for pillage in Paris on August 30 last.

LYDDITE AND SLEEPITE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
LYDDITE AND SLEEPITE. Some exaggerated stories are circu- lating in South Africa in regard to Boer inquisitiveness and the astonish- ing explosive power of Lyddite, two of which are worth reproducing. In the first instance, a farmer while visiting Capetown, made a few enquiries re- specting English methods of war and munitions. And it came to pass that he encountered an Englishman of old acquaintance with whom he conversed in the taal, a sort of broken English and kitchen Dutch, respecting the new shells to be employed for the Kruger crushing. " What is die Lyddite din- gus that they praat about so much?" asked the peaceful bucolic, "Well," replied the other, "it's a thing full of something fired from, a cannon, and when it drops on a kopje, and finds nobody there, it jumps on to another kopje, and so on until it finds a kopje with people, when it bursts with a big noise, and kills everybody dead." "Allemagtig," exclaimed the Boetian, "but we'll never be able to fight against that!"...
