SPORTING. CYCLING. LONGFORD CLUB. LONGFORD, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 January 1900
SPORTING, CYCLING &nbsp; LONGFORD CLUB. LONGFORD, Tuesday. The annual meeting of this club was held at the Queen's Arms Hotel on Satur- day evening, when there was only a mo- derate attendance. Mr. E Murnane, Jun., occupied the chair. The following report was read and adopted:-"The committee have now the honour to submit the annual report and balance-sheet. The past year, they are sorry to say, has not been a prosperous one, either financially or from a racing point of view. Very little interest has been taken in the affairs of the club, and several of the most Prominent members have been and are still away from the district. There being so few, one or two are very soon missed. The stopping of road racing caused the club to get to a very low ebb, as during the previous year several road races had been run. Much interest was taken in the events, and the men were kept more in- touch with each other. The membership list has fallen from 20 in 1898 to eight in 1890, which should ...

GOOD ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 January 1900
GOOD ADVICE. "'When you have a pain in the stomach take Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diarrhoea Remedy; it will soon ease the pain; I know it is good was the advice my brother gave me one day when calling at my house, and found me suffering from acute pains in the stomach and continual diarrhoea," says Henry Lankester, a well-known merchant at Simon's Town. "I promptly took his advice, and my faith in Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diarrhoea Remedy is now as strong as his. I always recommend it to my friends when they have need of such a remedy." Sold by all dealers. Large size, 3s, small is 6d. Hatton and Laws, wholesale agents, Launces- ton.*--1. The most dangerous of all games is one of bluff. When it is played by the individual gambler it leads him to risk his whole fortune upon the turn of the cards. When it is played by nations it means that they deliberately run the risk of having to choose between war and dishonour.-"Speaker."
IN PRAISE OF THE TASMANIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 January 1900
IN PRAISD OF THE TASMANIANS. A member of the South Australian contingent, writing from Orange River under date December 3, says:-"During the stay here it is quite likely that the Mounted Rifles will get some patrolling to do. This place is little better than a sandy desert. A veritable Gehenna heat prevails, and the high wind blows the sand in great clouds all over the place. Writing in my tent this blessed Sabbath afternoon the aids to composi- tion are showers of blinding sand and armies of the most persistent files I have ever met, huge ground spiders, and vari-coloured scorpions. 'Surely to Heaven the Soudan cannot be worse than this,' exclaims a perspiring Vic- torian officer as le looks in. I am. far too hot, tired, dirty, and parched with an unquenchable thirst, to, pallitate which there is nothing better than muddy water, to even faintly argue about it. It is a vile place, and I would not have a thousand square miles of it at a gift. The Mounted Rifles did not get into their...
THE SECOND. DIFFICULTY OF SELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 January 1900
THE SECOND. DIFFICULTY OF SELECTION. The work of selecting men for the second Tasmanian unit is still pro- ceeding, and several men who have been picked from the country com- panies have proceeded to Hobart for a few days' instruction, twelve volun- teers taking their departure for the capital by the express train yesterday. The full list of those selected will be made known to-day, but as far as can be ascertained none have been chosen from the Headquarters Company of the Second Battalion. The headquarters band will assemble at the railway station this evening and meet the northern members of the second unit for South Africa, and ac- company them to the barracks, where they will be located prior to their de- parture for the seat of war. The Com- mandant states that there is some difficulty in selecting the 45 men re- quired from the 125 volunteers, in con- sequence of many of the men being married and others not being efficient in musketry. Eight of the local men went into barracks...

SIEGE TRAIN. DESPATCHED TO THE FRONT. The last portion of the siege train has left Capetown for the front. HELMETS FOR THE COLONIALS. ORDERED BY THE AUTHORITIES. It is understood that in the recent engagement near Arundel some diffi- culty was experienced in recognising the colonials on account of their caps, and they had very nearly been fired upon in mistake for the enemy. They have now been ordered to use helmets in order to prevent similar mis- takes in future.
CAPTURE OF COLESBERG. A BRILLIANT MOVEMENT. Jan. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 January 1900
CAPTURE OF COLESBERG. A BRILLIANT MOVEMENT. Jan. 2. General French, after a rapid nocturnal advance, the infantry riding on wagons, found the enemy at dawn on Monday stretching for six miles along the hills around Colesberg. The infantry opened a feigned attack on the front, and 10 guns were soon in action, doing much execution, and silencing the enemy's pieces. In the meantime the cavalry and &nbsp; light artillery turned the right flank. Surprised and dismayed lest the re- treat would be cut off, the Boers fled eastwards, and General French occu- pied Colesberg. The New South Wales and New Zea- land troopers participated in the at- tack.
SCOUTS INTERCEPTED. RESISTED REPEATED ATTACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 January 1900
SCOUTS INTERCEPTED. RESISTED REPEATED ATTACKS. During the Dordrecht reconnaissance 40 of Montmorency's scouts were inter- cepted, and took refuge in a donga. A force of Boers, estimated at 800, surrounded the British and frequently attacked them, but the enemy was re- pulsed on each occasion. The scouts fought splendidly until 115 mounted infantry and four guns ap- peared on the scene. In the morning the Boers were in full retreat. Two of the scouts were wounded, and all their horses had been shot. The Boers lost eight killed and 30 wounded.
