BUSH RIDER AND SHOOTER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
BUSH RIDER AND SHOOTER. The class of men from whom it is proposedi by serveral wealthy Aus tralians to recruit a regiment of "irregular horse" for service in Soutlh Africa is well known to everyone acquainted with the Australian back country. As to his fitness for this par ticular arms of the service, the "Kanga roo Shooter" and "Bushman," gene rally, both as a plucky, daring rider and marvellously clever flying shot, leaves no possible room for doubt. These men, whose height would range from about 5ft. 8in. or 91n. to almost anything up to 7ft., have been in the saddle ever since they could "toddle," and in some cases even before tliat. Their lives have been spent in districts where food and water are often scarce, and they clearly understand how to( make the most or best of whatever: difficulty or predicament they may find themselves in. They are always in the pink of condition, and as hard as nails, without the faintest knowledge of the word "fear," but, at the same time, ard "br...

A TRUST ESTATE. SUPREME COURT JUDGMENT. HOBART, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
A TRUST ESTATE SUPREME ;COURT JUDGMENT. HOBART, Thursday. 1. Mr. Justice M'Intyre delivered judg- I ment in Chambers to-day in the mat ter of the trusts of the will and codicil 1 of Frank Allison, late of Streanshalh, t in Tasmania, deceased, and the Trus- I tees Act, 1898. His Honor said-One of the points submitted on the hearing of 1 this matter, and which has come be fore me for further consideration, is whether a sum amounting to £456 13s Sd was included in an assignment by way of mortgage from the late Natha niel Paul Allison to the Derwent and Tamar Insurance Company. The point of construction then argued was not decided by me, as upon the statements of facts presented I came to the con clusion that part of the above-men tiohed sum belonged to N. P. Allison's estate. It now appears from an alli davit filed on behalf of the trustees of Francis Allison's estate on December 20 last that a sum of £206 10s 2d, por tion of £156 13s Sd, has been ascer tained to be made up of various ...

GATTON MURDERS. PERSISTENT RUMOURS. BRISBANE, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
GATTON MURDERS. PERSISTENT RUMOURS. BRISBANE, Thursday. Persistent rumours are current to the effect that the police have, some clue as to the perpetrators of the terrible tragedy at Gatton on Boxing Day, 1898. These rumours no doubt are to a large extent attributable to the similarity be- tween that tragedy and the crime recently brought to light near Childers. The Commissioner of Police states there is no ground for such rumour, adding as a result of the enquiries the police are confident that there is no connec- tion between the two murders. As far as the Gatton crime is concerned he points out he never lost sight of the matter for an instant, Certain suspects had been closely watched, and the case was not by any means shelved. At the present time the police were engaged making investigations. The visit of the Kaiser to England is not unlikely to be the first step towards the union of Great Britain and the United States with the European Triple Alliance. "Hirlap," Budapest.
BRITON OR BOER? INTERVIEW WITH MR. GEORGE GRIFFITH. A CLEVER PROPHECY. THE REAL IDEA IN FIGHTING. OLD GERMAN AMMUNITION. BETRAYED BY THE GOOSE-STEP. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
BRITON OR BOER? INTERVIEW WITH MR. GEORGE GRIFFITH. A OLEVER PROPHECY. THE REAL IDEA IN FIGHTING. OLD GERMAN AMMUNITION. BETRAYED BY THE GOOSE-STEP. Few of the many books published during recent years on the South Afri can problem bear in a more interesting way on the present crisis in the Trans vaal than the little volume, "Briton or Boer?" by Mr. George Griffith. It was originally written as a serial story for "Pearson's Weekly," and to gather ma terial and educate himself for the work Mr. Griffith went to South Africa, and spent a good deal of time in the Trans vaal and Orange Free State. While there he probed some of the Innermost secrets of the Transvaal, and came into daily communication with the Boer leaders in the present war. The re markable feature about the book is its prophecy as to things which have since actually taken place. Though written three years eigo, it is in its essential features virtually a story of the conflict now raging between the Boers and the British. ...
HEROES SOUTH AFRICA HAS COST US. AND SOME WHO CAME BACK WITH GLORY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
HEROES SOUTH AFRICA HAS COST US. AND SOME WHO CAME BACK WITH GLORY. General Colley and 600 men were killed at Majuba Hill by the Boers In 1881. That was a distastrous day for the English troops, but to one, man it brought fame and a V.C. General Colley's object was to sur prise the Boer camp at Laing's Nek. On the night of February 26, 1881, his men, carrying three clays' provisions, marched out of the camp at Mount Prospect and reached the foot of Ma juba Hill at daybreak. "Once on the top of the hill-after leaving 200 men to keep up the com munication on a commanding point they could look down into the Boer entrenchments that scattered away to the Buffalo River, and from an eleva tion of 2500ft. could see our own camp four miles oif as the crow flies. "For an hour the troops lay down to rest, while some were helping the sailors haul up the Gatling gun, and soon after sunrise the enemy's mounted vedettes trotted out towards them, all unconscious of their presence up on the mountain...
