TRANSPORT UNSUITABLE. COMMUNICATION FROM CAPTAIN CAMERON. HOBART, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
TRANSPORT UNSUITABLE. COMMUNICATION FROM CAPTAIN CAMERON. HOBART, Saturday. Colonel Legge (the Commandant), under date 30th inst., has ad- dressed a letter to the Minis- ter of Defence covering the fol- lowing extract received to-day from Captain Cameron, who is in charge of the Tasmanian contingent: "Our transport is not suitable for this country. The wagons are to be used for ambulance in Cape Colony, as they would not last a week on service, and in place of them we are to have three vehicles drawn by 10 mules each. In the face of this statement I recommend that no horses and wagons be sent with the draft. The tents and utensils can be packed in a small tarpaulin, the blankets in bundles for use on board ship, and the men's kit-bags will be sent independently to the contingent." The Minister of Defence (Hon. G. Collins) has attached the following memo.:-"Order for horses and cart cancelled."

TASMANIAN UNIT. LOYALTY AT BEACONSFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
TASMANIAN UNIT. LOYALTY AT BEACONSFIELD. Our correspondent writes:-A meet- ing was held in the Victoria Hall on Friday night to decide what steps should be taken to give the men who have volunteered for South Africa a fitting send-off, Mr. T. E. Woodman (chairman of the Town Board) presid- ing. After a number of suggestions had been made, it was decided to give them a social on the eve of their de- parture for camp, the proceeds to be handed to those who go to the war. A committee consisting of Messrs. T. E. Woodman, J. W. Wyett, A. Douglas, jun., T. H. Walduck, F. R. Layton, W. Hutchins, R. Coningsby, L. Henn, and Dr. Joyce was formed for the purpose of carrying out the details, and they started work immediately and have already got matters well in hand.
A MEDICAL VOLUNTEER. QUEENSTOWN, Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
A MEDICAL VOLUNTEER. QUEENSTOWN, Sunday. Dr. T. E. Abbott has offered to accompany the Tasmanian unit am- medical officer. ZEEHAN, Sunday. As in other parts of Tasmania, the work of enrolling volunteers to pro- ceed to South Africa has caused a feeling of proper excitement in the ranks at Zeehan. Captain A. Morrisby received 15 offers in all, and from this number five have been accepted. They will probably proceed to Hobart on Wednesday next. Four are Privates Pegg, M'Guinness, Smallhorn, and Richardson, while the fifth, Con- stable Urquhart, of Deep Lead., was formerly a member of the Black Watch. Captain Morrisby is very proud that out of 10 men selected from Zeehan for the two Tasmanian units nine are from his own corps.
COUNTRY NEWS. AVOCA, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
COUNTRY NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT'.) AVOCA, Saturday. The Gaiety Company played here on Friday and Saturday, December 22 and 23, to good houses, and on Sunday evening they gave a sacred concert, which was well attended. On Boxing Night the Star Minstrel Troupe, from Campbell Town, per- formed here to a crammed house, many not being able to gain admittance. The Campbell Town Band performed on the sports ground, and the music was spoken of in very favourable term.; A ball wound up the day's proceedings, the visiting band kindly supplying the music. LATROBE, Friday. The Warden and Mr. H. Young; J.P., presided at the Police Court this morn- ing. Permits to sell in booths on the racecourse on New Year's Day were granted to Messrs. G Wilton and C. Fawkner; billiard table licenses for the year to Mesdames Granberg and Mor- rison and Mr. G. S. Russell; and stage coach licenses to Messrs. C. Crack (Longford) and J. Walters (Bishops- bourne).

PRETORIA AND ITS FORTIFICATIONS. ("Cape Argus.") [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
PRETORIA AND ITS FORTI- FICATIONS. ("Cape Argus.") President Kruger is anxious that the main body of his burghers should &nbsp; hastily return to Pretoria, in order to prepare for the last great stand and desperate resistance at the Boer capi- tal. For this coming mighiy defence enormous sums of money have been squandered, under the heading of "Special" and Secret Service Funds. For several years foreign engineers, with various credentials and recom- mendations, have come over from Europe to give their opinions as to the best mode of turning Pretoria into a fortified town, and to endeavour to make it impregnable; but the Execu- tive Council, in conjunction with the War Department, like many a sick man, seemed inordinately fond of many doctors, taking advice and trying to obtain a cure (or better a defence) from all and sundry, and have no doubt overdosed themselves by carrying out the portions of too many and varying sciences. To this must be added the jobbery and corruption...
NEW YEAR'S DAY. THE LAST OF THE OLD YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
NEW YEAR'S DAY. THE LAST OF THE OLD YEAR. The New Year was ushered in last night in a modified form of what con- stitutes the usual custom, for the event &nbsp; of 1900 fell upon a Sunday, and as &nbsp; such was more quietly observed than would have been the case had the celebration occurred on one of the other six days of the week. A band concert was given in the City Park, the band of the Second Battalion occupying the rotunda. The usual watchnight ser- &nbsp; vices were held and well attended, and whistles, steamer foghorns, etc., rang out their welcome to the dawning year, and a crowd of goodly proportions came out to add their quota to the &nbsp; notes of hopefulness and joy that con- stitutes the strain in which the coming of another twelvemonth is ever heralded. The night was pleasant a trifle close and warm, but still an agreeable respite from the intense heat that had prevailed during the day, and much, satisfaction was expressed at the prosp...

GOOD ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
GOOD ADVICE. "'When you have a pain in the stomach take Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diarrhoea Remedy; it will soon ease the pain; I know it is good' was the advice my brother gave me one day when calling at my house, and found me suffering from acute pains in the stomach and continual diarrhoea," says Henry Lankester, a well-known merchant at Simon's Town. "I promptly took his advice, and my faith in Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diarrhoea Remedy is now as strong as his. I always recommend it to my friends when they have need of such a remedy." Sold by all dealers. Large size, 3s, small 1s 6d. Hatton and Laws, wholesale agents, Launces- ton.*--1. Men exposed to the rigours of the Alaskan winter do not wear mous- taches. They wear full beards to pro- tect the throat and face, but keep the upper lips shaven. The moisture from the breath congeals so quickly that a moustache becomes embedded in a solid cake of ice, and the face is frozen in a short time,
OUR BOYS. ("Cape Times.") [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
OUR BOYS. ("Cape Times.") "Our casualties among oflicers were severe." How mnany pangs of sorrow; must these too frequent words create in the hearts of men and women at home, when the official lists of loss are posted at the War Office.. But outside the home circle of those who have fallen in the service of their country and Queen, a magazine writer reminds us that there are many who follow the course of a campaign with an almost equally painful interest. These are the boys of England's great public schools, where the vast proportion of our officers received their early educa- tion. Nowhere in the world outside the officer's own family is his career and fate more keenly watched than among his old schoolfellows; boyhood is the time of hero-worship, and one can fancy Smith minor devouring a newspaper amid a circle of silent com- panions, and telling in awe-struck tones of how Vernon, "he for whom I used to fag," had won some coveted distinction on the field, or, hit by the foeman's bu...
HELLAWELL'S RIDE.—DODGING SHRAPNEL. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
HELLAWELL'S RIDE.-DODGING SHRAPNEL. On Wednesday, October 25, Hella- well, of the "Cape Times " and "Daily Mail," returned after exciting adven- tures during his plucky ride to Kuru- man and back with despatches. During the morning the enemy continued his practice from the big gun, and our look-outs on the housetops and other coigns of vantage warned the men in the vicinity when and where to dodge the projectiles. Going on towards mid- day, the enemy concentrated his rifle fire upon one side of the town, and it was utterly impossible to reply in any way, for he was, out of the range of rifles, and pretty well of our artillery. At the same time he was approaching under cover of his shell fire, and it was impossible to abandon our loop- hole works for the more genial cover of the bomb-proof shelter. Thus we were kept dodging ignominiously, now under cover of the house to escape the attentions of the big gun, now crouch- ing in our sandbags to avoid the shrap- nel and segment which the...
