SOME INCIDENTS OF THE BOER WAR OF 1881. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 26 August 1901

30ME IBCIDEHÏS OF THE . BOER WAR OF 1881. In view of the present crisis it may bot bo uninteresting (says tho 'London " Globo " military correspondent) to reoall some experiences of tho Boor War of 1881. At Eaing's Nok the Boors wero without artillery, bnt all mounted and veil armed, and amply supplied with ammunition. They numbered about 2,000, fought under excellent eovor, and; their fire was most effective. Sir George Oolley's force numbered 1,200 of all ranks, with nine guns ; onr main attaold was uphill, was fully exposed, and lignally failed with heavy loss. At the, action of the Ingogo wo occupied a small plateau, ronghJy triangular in shape; forming part of the main ridge with, which it was conncctcd by ncclis slightly lower than tho plateau wo hold.

THE POSTAL BILL AND SWEEP BUSINESS. The passing by the Federal Parliament oí clauses'55 and $6 of the Postal Bill interferes with the Tasmanian. sweep business. Some concern is expressed, however, (or " invest-1 menis" of many people who have already ¡ sent money in connection with the forthcom ing horseraces. The Postal Bill should become law in about three weeks at farthest. Inquiries were made of Senator Drake on the subject of the enforcement of the new law. What was mainly sought was an idea as to whether the law would be immediately en forced, or whether some notice would be given. The Postmistcr-Gcneral said that the government had not .yet considered the ques tion, which was hardly to be expected in view of the fact that the clauses were only agreed toon Thursday night. Hev could not antici pate the decision of the ministry on this matter, but he was certain of one thing—no warning would be given of the enforcement of the law by the government. It may be mentioned that notic...

Who Are the Poor? [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 26 August 1901

Who Are the Poor? (By Ohskkybk.) The old age pension which was designed to benefit the poor and needy, is to my way of thinking a first-class law, but at the present rate of going it is greatly overdone. In almost every issue of the paper we are confronted with a long list containing the names of those who have been, or are about to become recipients of the "state aid." Xow one would not think that in our midst we have so many who are, so to speak, in want of the bare necessaries of life ; or, if not why do tlley so appear in the eyes of the public ? Is it to gain the few shillings per week that rightly belong to the aged poor and iniirm ? The poor shall always be with us and that is the supreme reason why a more rigid investigation should be made before granting those pensions. None will oppose a bill that will tend to succour the iniirm and poor ; with no means of their own, or no relatives to assist them. ; But, on the other hand, to give to! those who are over a certain age, in ...
