TYPHOID FEVER. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
TYPHOID FEVER. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Now the "dog days" are upoa us, with the thermometer anywhere between 90deg. and 100deg. in the shade, and typhoid fever is very preva lent in the city and suburbs, too much attention canriot well be paid to the state of the local drainage. At Bryant street, Invermay: Howick-street, be tween Charles and St. John streets; Melbourne-street, Sandhill;' St. John street, from Cox's Hill to Howick street, I can positively assert the pre valence of the typhoid germ through defective surface drainage, having been in these places within the last ten days. At Hill-street, where there are several cases of typhoid, one of which termin ated fatally this morning, it is more than probable an open drain has caused the epidemic. Would it not be advis able to instruct the police to report all such defective drainage as the forego ing, so that typhoid may be prevented? Typhoid is far and away more fatal, and consequently more to be dreaded, than small-pox, yet were...

MODERN GUNS. LORD WOLSELEY'S OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
MODERN GUNS. LORD WOLSELEY'S' OPINION. Replying to the criticism of "The Times" on the failure of the War Office to secure the most modern guns, Field Marshal Viscount Wolseley, Com mander-in-Chief, has made a very im portant statement. Iord Wolseley declares that the British field guns are equal to any held by European Powers. The Boers, he adds, are using position guns. Later. The "Daily Mail" declares that the Government will shortly spend !£5,000,000 in artillery, with a view of making the field guns adaptable as position guns.
HEAT WAVE. AN AGREEABLE CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
IREAT WAVE. '' AN AGREEABLE CHANGE. 2" During yesterday morning and after noon very oppressive weather again prevailed, and the thermometer regis-' tered 146deg. in the sun and a fraction over 100 in the shade. Shortly after 5 o'clock the wind changed from north east to north-west, with very hard squalls from about west-north-west, raising one of the worst duststorms h ever experienced in the city. The dust G enveloped the streets like a fog, and p everywhere a door was open places C were smothered. The wind blew very t: strongly for a few minumites, and for a Ii couple of hours the weather was mucn c cooler. The breeze died away at 8 o'clock, and the atmosphere continued exceedingly sultry until shortly before 11 o'clock, when a heavy thunderstorm passed over the city and a most re freshing rain fell. The change was much needed, and will give relief to many. The thunder and lightning de- a layed telegraphic communication, and I our cable messages were very late in n reaching this o...
NOTES ON THE CABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
NOTEIS ON THE CABLES. (By Rhodesian.) The Australian contingent is coming in for some sharp active service. The New Zealanders and New South Welsh men participated In Major-General French's advance on Colesberg, and now we learn that the Victorians and Queenslanders were hotly engaged at Sunnyside, about 20 miles north-west of Belmont. The Orange Free State border runs close to the railway line in the 'vicinity of Belmont, and the Boer force would probably be some of those encamped at Jacobsdal. From this camp several raiding parties have been out with a view of destroying the railway line, and both those protecting the communications and also portion of Methuen's force have had sundry brushes with them. It is not unlikely that our Tasmanian lads participated in this skirmish. The cable that states a gymkhana, which is an Indian word for an outdoor sports meeting and entertainment, has been held on the Modder River would be understandable were it not for the additional words, "despi...

M'Leold and A. Rose, als:o of the Queensland contingent, killed. &nbsp; The following telegram has been &nbsp; received by the Lieut.-Governor from Sir Alfred Milner:-"Following casualties reported among Queensland mounted infantry yesterday near Belmont: Dangerously wounded, Lieutenant Adie; killed, Privates M'Leod, A.

LONDON TIN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
LONDON TIN IIARIuRET, The Mount Bischoff T.M. Company has received the following report from Messrs. French and Smith, London, dated December 1:--During the past fortnight prices of tin have fluctuated heavily, the extremes being £130 and £122. We estimate the turnover to have been about 6000 tons. The tin plate trade in the country is again active, and we may look for increased consnmption of tin in South Wales. But in America, owing to a slack demand in the canning trade, and in consequence of the high price of fuel many of the factories wilil be closed for the winter. It is estimated that the falling off in the consumption of tin will be 500 or 600 tons per month. In the East a large business has been done, and shipments this month are likely to be heavy. Shipments during November were:- Straits, 3020 tons; and Australian, 275 tons. London stock has increased to 5846 tons. Arrivals from Straits 1948 tons, Australia 161 tons. Australian tin is selling at the same price as Straits....

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. CHALMERS CHURCH, HOBART. HOBART, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH&gt; &nbsp; &nbsp; CHALMERS CHURCH, HOBART. HOBART, Wednesday. This evening the Presbytery of Hobart met at Chalmers Church, when the Rev. John S. Buntine was duly in ducted into the pastoral charge of the congregation, in succession to Rev. C. H. Talbot, who has removed to Syd- ney. The service was conducted by Revs. Dr. Scott, W. R. Cunningham, * and T. Burns Bannerman, of Swansea. Mr. Buntine comes with an excellent reputation as a young minister of ability and eloquence.

He was educated first at the Scotch C(ol lege, Melbourne, and then at Melbourr.e University. He studied theology at Ormond College, and after receiving a license from the Melbourne Presbytery was settled two years ago at Footscray, where his ministry was crowned with success.

THE COLESBERG VICTORY. ENEMY NUMBERED 4000. USED A BRITISH GUN. WITH WOOLWICH AMMUNITION. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
THE COLESBERG VICTORY. ENEMY NUMBERED 4000. USED A BRITISH GUN. WITH WOOLWICH AMMUNITION. It has been ascertained that the Boers who were so brilliantly routed at Colesberg by Major-General French numbered about 4000. They used a British 15-pounder gun, which was probably seized on the occasion of Major-General Sir William &nbsp; Gatacre's reverse at Stormberg, and Woolwich ammunition. One thousand of the Boers, with two guns, fled to Norval's Pont, on the Orange River. General French now controls the road and bridge to the Orange Free State.

COUNTRY NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.) CAVESIDE, Saturday. The funeral of the late Mr. D. Picket, who died at the advanced age of SS, took place yesterday, and being well kInown throughout this and surround ing districts, a very large number gathered too see his remains borne to their resting place. The service was conducted by the incumbent of St. Mark's, Deloraine. DERBY, Monday. Christmas passed off very pleasantly here, many of our miners having left for their homes in different parts of the colony. Most of the Derby folk journeyed to Pioneer race meeting on Boxing Day, where some very good rac ing was seeccn. Too much praise cannot be given to the secretary and general committee for the excellence of the pro gramme submitted, and the order of business met with general satisfaction. The committee this season charged the public for admission to the course, which I consider a necessary precau tion, for it will help the club in the future. On Wednesday the Derby Athletic Club...
A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY. BRISBANE, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900
A TERRIBLE TRAGEI)Y. BRISBANE, Wednesday. The Commissioner of Police has re ceived a telegram from the Goodiwindi polioe to the effect that on New Year's Day Mrs. Pfingst, aged 68 years, was found dead in her house. A medical examination revealed that deceased had been terribly assaulted and mutilated. Signs of a struggle on the verandah of the dwelling were found, as well as blood marks on the floor, and blood stained clothing partially washed. The body was buried yesterday, and the husband, Valentine Pfingst, arrested when he was leaving the cemetery.
WAR ROCKETS FOR THE BOERS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
WAR ROCKETS FOR THE BOERS. The good shooting made by the Powerful's brigade in Natal, at the battle of Ladysmith, is a matter for congratulation. The navy suffered a good deal at Majuba, and it holds pretty clear ideas about wiping out that affair. In the China fleet, from which the Powerful comes, they have had a good deal of practice with their shore guns, and no one is likely to allow that practice to he wasted. To the naval mind, however, there is nothing like rockets for the Boers. War rockets are terrifying things, and in the navy they are well skilled in the; use of them.-"The Engineer."
TO SHELL PRETORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
TO SHELL PRETORIA. The siege train to be mobilised for service in South Africa (says the Lon don "Daily Mail"), will be manned by 32 officers and 1104 non-commissioned officers and men. The armament will probably consist of 30 howitzers, with siege travelling carriages, weighing al together over 3000 tons. Shells of 11i1b., filled with a bursting charge of 191b. of lyddite, can be thrown from. the train into Pretoria at a range of 10,000 yards. The difficulty which the British are experiencing in conducting a war 5000 miles away from home (says the "Mili tary Review of Vienna") proves how impossible it would be for any Euro pean Power to make important raids on distant British colonies. England is secure as long as her naval supre macy is undisputed. Over 2,000,000 acres are devoted to the maintenance of deer in Scotland, where e000 stags are annually killed. The great diamond mines of Sbuth Africa have yielded in the last 20 years £275,000,000 worth of diamonds. EAT JONES' IXL JAMS...
