SIEGE OF LADYSMITH. A SYNOPSIS OF EVENTS. HEAVY FIGHTING. MARITZBURG, Nov. 30. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
SIEGE OF LADYSMITH. A SYNOPSIS OF EVENTS. HEAVY FIGHTING. MARITZBURG, Nov. 30. One of the "Cape Times" special correspondents, shut up in Ladysmith, got safely through the Boer lines, reaching Estcourt last night. He says:--I left Ladysmith on Satur- day last. My journey was first north- ward through the Boer lines, which I passed on Sunday. I pushed on again at night south-east towards the junc- tion of Klip and Tugela Rivers. Con- tinuing, I met commandoes, and had many narrow escapes. I travelled from sunrise to sunset. On Tuesday I passed by Inklawe Mount, through hill and bush, and then- rested a few hours. On Tuesday night I crossed on to Weenen, and arrived, tired out, at Estcourt to-night. The Boers are moving northward. There have been none at Weenen since Sunday. The following is a synopsis of the siege: Wednesday, Nov. 1-The town was shelled freely by Boors, townspeople leaving in large numbers. Thursday, 2nd.-All communication cut off. The town shelled on every side. Mar...
THE BORDER DISTRICTS. OPEN SEDITION. 2300 REBELS JOIN THE ENEMY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
THE BORDER DISTRICTS. OPEN SEDITION. 2300 REBELS JOIN THE ENEMY. Yesterday morning (December 2) a representative of the "Cape Times" had an interesting conversation with Mr. John Cooke, a resident of Venterstad, who has just arrived in Capetown from that district, which he left under a permit on Monday week. Mr. Cooke states that Venterstad was occupied by a small force of about 25 Free Staters, who were received with open arms by the residents. The whole district rose practically to a man and went over to the Free Staters of their own free will, many of them without waiting to be commandeered. All the most influential farmers of the district offered their services (which were of course accepted), and constituted themselves a "commandeer- ing committee." Those loyal or more prudent British subjects who preferred to take no part in this open sedition were given seven days to clear out of the district. "God is our guide" was being said on every side, and the Boers and their rebel assi...

TASMANIA V. NEW SOUTH WALES. HOBART, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
TASMANIA V. NEW SOUTH WALES. HOBART, Saturday. The first match ever played in Tas- mania against an eleven fromn New South Wales was commenced to-day on the Upper Cricket Ground. The wea- ther was warm, with a strong nor'-west wind blowing, which made it somewhat hard for the bowlers trundling against the wind. The attendance was only small. The wicket was one of Curator Walker's billiard-board-like pitches-true as a hair, and as hard as flint--a thorough batsman's wicket, and a regular bowler killer: one, on which trundlers could get little work. The fielding of the visiting team was notable for its con- spicuous brilliancy, and an object les- son to the locals, which they could with advantage emulate. The bowl- ing was well handled by Newell, cap tain of the visitors, who changed his men with great persistency. The bats- men, however, were playing for keeps, and made the most of the excellent wicket provided. The veteran Burn was elected "skipper" of the islanders, and Newell perf...

AQUATICS. LONGFORD, Saturday. A meeting of the committee of the local regatta was held last evening, Mr. J. H. Robinson presiding. A state- ment of receipts and expenditure was submitted, showing, with a few pro- mised subscriptions yet to come in, a balance of about £5 on the right side after a number of accounts had been passed for payment. A discussion took place re the advisableness of altering the date of the regatta to March 17 (St. Patrick's Day), but ultimately the matter was allowed to stand over. It was also thought desirable to clean some of the reeds out of the South Esk River prior to the next carnival being held.
