SHORT STORIES. ACCUSED OF MURDER. BOERS' RUDE IDEAS OF JUSTICE. ("New York Sun.") [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
SHORT STORIES. ACCUSED OF MURDER. BOERS' RUDE IDEAS OF JUSTICE. ("New York Sun.") The man from South Africa was smoking in the club and moralising. "I suplose,"said he,"that when these lynchers set out to hang a man they usually get the right man, but it must sometimes happen that they get the wrong one-they are dreadfully im petuous. I have ,a great deal of per sonal sympathy for any man who is in danger of lynching." "Personal sympathy?" "Yes, downright fellow, feeling. I have always the fear that he is the wrong man, and lynching is too posi tive a proceeding altogether. He ought to have a chance-a choice of pills, one of which is poisoned, or some thing like that, if there is any doubt of course." - "Trial by ordeal? Do you believe in the ordeal style of trial yourself?" "I do," said the man from South -Africa, emphatically, "because I've seen it tested successfully." "Ands what had you done to be tried9?" "I had been keeping bad, company. One day I was trudging along the trek i...
MAFEKING. THE STORY OF THE SIEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
MAFEKING. THE STORY OF THE SIEGE. The following further extracts from the official log of the siege of Mafeking are forwarded by Reuter's Mafeking correspondent: On Wednesdaay evening, Oct. 25, the colonel commanding issued a general order ccngratullating the garrison on their steadiness under the heavy shell fire which took place upon that day, which resulted in the repelling of the enemy's attack, but regretted' that the Boers could not be induced to come within rifle range which would have increased the value of their repulse. He was glad indeed that the casualties on our side had been so slight, only one man having his leg broken by a frag ment of shell. He commented upon the rate at which the enemy were ex pending their ammunition, and ex pressed a belief that the relieving forces were not very far distant. That 1 day, too, we got news of the advance of Llewellyn and an armoured train from the north. Friday was again a comparatively quiet day. A quiet day we now under stand in ...

KIPLING'S JINGLE AND THE WAR. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
KIPLING'S JINGLE AiND THE WAR. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Herewith I beg to return the copy you sent me of Kipling's jingle. That, you will say, concerns the busi ness manager; but I will seize this opportunity and ease my mind with a few words concerning this miserable war. I ami a woman, an Englishwoman, and one who loves her country with a deep and true affection. - Love of country is a good' sentiment, but there is a higher and a nobler one-the love of h'onour, truth, justice, and that ",riglhteousne!ss that exalteth a nation." So, on behalf not only of myself, but of many of your readers, I will state that no amount of popular clamour, no skill in "the art of putting things," no plausibility of statement, no casuistry in argument, will shake our conviction that this is a most unrighteous war, a war of greed and grab. Of course we are called' "Little Englanders," that stupid parrot-cry which is supposed to take the place of argument and fair judgment; but I will use the words of nobl...
