Editorial Notes. BOER WELCOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 29 August 1902
Editorial Notes. BOER WELCOME. The recent deprecation by the 'Times ' of tlie enthusiasm dis played by the London crowds on the arrival of the Boer Generals from Southampton ?will readily commend itself to all right thinking people. For, while it is always proper to be wil ling to extend the right hand of fellowship to a van quished foe, it ill becomes the victors to be so effusive in their acclamations, more especially after such a grim spectacle as war. Such procedure would be quite in keeping, if the heroes were returning from a national game of cricket or football, but after such a grave experience, with all its unpleasant asssocia tions, the heartiness of the wel come could have with propieiy, been greatly curtailed, as 6uch conduct is likely to incite the Boer Generals to the belief that had they protracted the struggle a little longer the result might have been different, or possibly lead to the renewal of hostilities at a later period. There seems to be a growing opinion amo...

BREVITIES. On Monday morniglast a step-son of Mr. W. Phillips died of dropsy.

Mr. Hunter, enganged on the survey of the proposed Railway Eoute-Molong to Pe ak Hill, is s';iU hard at it. Owing to the difficult nature of the country through which ho is.passing, his pro gress is not very speedy. No patients are at present in the Peak Hill Hospital.

SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 29 August 1902
SOUTH AFRICA. Taking one consideration with another, like Gilbert's policeman, the outloolc at the seat of the late war appears to be anything but reassuring. For a short period after the declaration of peace the Boer and the Briton were uromers; iney lURsrcanugea courtesies, they shook each other by the hand, the Boer swore to be good and true and the Briton to welcome him as a sharer in the glories of the. Empire. But lately a change has come o'er the hap py spirit of this dream and, if we may judge from all reports, the demon of unrest is beginning to revive and the veneer of brotherhood to wear away, and *the foundation it exposes is a trifle cross-grained. Of course none of us were so sanguine as to expect a permanent and immediate bond be tween the two nations; but we did hope — most of us- ?- at least a par tial fogetfulness of the past straggle, a gradual blending of race, an advan cing unity of purpos a word, an improvement in all socia and material matters. Unfortunately, ...

Current Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 29 August 1902
Current Jottings.. (By Geas hofpeb.) Many people (this journal included) have lately taken great delight in say ing many unkind things about our Federal Prime Minister, who is at his 'Country's Call 'at home, re his re marks about the severity of the drought in New South Wales. Now, although the cable does not say so this assertion was evidentlv made over a ' bottle of fizz and a couple of smoking chickens, and taking into considera tion the horrid things the British masses may think if they thought his less fortunate brethren were living on rabbit's livers and compote of prickly pears, while he punished as- well as his dainty appetite would allow such sumptuous fare, surely it shows the diplomacy of your great Statesman to put it off with a wave of the hand, at least while he was among them. # * * The Woman's Franchise Bill has now become law. , Wnile this Bill is an admirable thing to be kept in the House, as it furnishes material for argument with the fair sex, neverthe less it i...
