I feel that a greater reliance can be placed on my own flesh and blood than on that of the Boer, and more emphatically is that so as the war proceeds, when the barbarous, treacher ous acts are reported of that side who, though they have opportunities of civi lisation, are infinitely worse than the blacks whose country they stole.

IN ACCOUNT WITH MR. STEYN. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
IN ACCOUNT WITH MR. STEYN. Our bill for moral and material damagec against the Orange Free State will be a heavy one. Payment will, we hope and believe, be exacted promptly and remorse lessly to the uttermost farthing. A spe cial and burdensome tax on Doer farms, plus an indefinite spell of martial law, should be the Free Stators' penalty for their wanton aggression upon uc, who, in the past, have treated thenm so generously. -"Newcastle Daily Chronicle."

Mour, a musician, for an advertisement in A. J. Cox and Co.'s "Descriptive Tourists' Guide to Tas mania."

No evidence had bean brought forward of any intentional or wilful fraud on the part of the accused, and the Bench dismissed the case.
