SOMETHING ABOUT THE BOERS. BY ONE WHO HAS LIVED WITH THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 January 1900

SOMETHING ABOUT THE BOERS. BY ONE WHO HAS LIVED WITH THEM. Mr. George, Lacy writes to "The Times": - Sir,-Thc-ra is so much misapprehen sion, generally amounting to positive ignorance, as to the standing and his tory, of the Doers in South Africa among the British public, and especi ally among some of those whose mis sion is supposed to be to inform us as to the facts-I allude to the press writers-that a few words from one who has had very special meang of knowledge may not be inopportune. No one not blinded by envy, hatred, malice, and all uncharitableness would dretm of taking his facts from Mr. Labouchere, Mr. Scott, or Mr. Stead, or even from Mr. Courtney or Sir Ed ward Clarke; nor could any one with the least knowledge of their ante cedants accord any weight to the opinions of Mr. F. C. Selons, who poses his few hunting comrades notoriously the best, and the only really enterprising men of their race-as examples of the whole; or of Mr. H. A. Bryden, whose actual experience has ...

THE POWERS IN THE FAR EAST. A GLANCE AT THEIR DIPLOMACY DR. G. E. MORRISON ON THE SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 January 1900

THE POWERS IN THE FAR EAST. A GLANCE AT THEIR DIPLOMACY DR. G. E. MORRISON ON THE SITUATION. Dr. G. E. Morrison, son of the late Dr. George Morrison, of Geelong, and cor respondent of "The Times" at Pekin, arrived in Melbourne on Wednesday morning by the French mail steamer Ville do la Ciotat. Dr. G. E. Morri son has had exceptional opportunities for watching the trend of events in the Far East. He has travelled ex tensively in Siam, China, and Japan, and has had a large personal experi ence of Oriental diplomatic methods. In the course of a conversation with a representative of the "Argus," Dr. G. E. Morrison touched first upon the great T'rans-Siberian railway of Rus sia, the first sod of which was cut at Vladivostock in May, 1891, and the total length of which will be about 4700 miles, the cost of construction being estimated at £55,000,000.

THE KAISER'S VISIT TO THE QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 January 1900

THE KAISER'S VI SIT TO THE QUEEN. (From "M.A.P.") The visit of the German Emperor and his family has been a big success. I hear from many quarters that the Emperor has charmed everybody by his geniality, his unaffectedness, and by his evidently keen enjoyment of his visit. As the years have passed the character of the Emperor has softened and mellowed. The strong self-asser tiveness, which was its distinguishing character in his youth, has been. trans formed into a strong, and, at times, fearless advocacy of his own views; but, when the sovereign has laid aside his duties, the man becomes genial, pleasant, ready to please, easy to be pleased. EFFECT ON THE QUEEN, This visit, meantime, has been eagerly welcomed by the entourage of the Court, in the hope that it would distract the Queen's thoughts from the habit of brooding over the list of killed and wounded. bince her accession the Queen has taken an especial pride in her soldiers, and many of the old habitues of the Court still tel...

COUNTRY NEWS.. (FROM OUR OWN CORflSOI'OiNDiNTS' , GLENGARRY, Friday. I und erstand that £22 was. taken at the feast and concert on Monday last an account of which appeared in your Thursday's issue. On. looking over this account I find that one name was inadvertently omitted, MiSs Ginn, who sang "Barney, take me home again." The concert seems to have given gene ral satisfaction, for I hear on all sides the opinion expressed that it surpassed those previously given on New Year's Night. PERTH, Saturday. A lecture on London, illustrated with lantern views, was delivered in the Victoria Hall on Friday by the Rev. J. R. Bradbury, Wesleyan minister.

A DISTINGUISHED METALLURGIST. THE CYANIDE PATENT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 January 1900

A DISTBINUISIiED RiET AL LUIRGIST. THE CYANIDE PATENT. Mr. J. S. MacArthur, one of the original patentees of the MacArthur Forrest cyanide process for tae extrac tion of gold from its ores, arrived in Melbourne from London on Friday. He is en route to the West Coast of Tas mania, where, in his capacity as a member of the London board of direc tors of the North Mount Lyell Com pany, he will thoroughly inspect that property, and in addition seize the op portunity of making himself acquainted with the resources pf the district. Mr. MacArthur spent the earlier years of his career on the Glasgow scientific staff of the Tharsis (Spain) copper mine, and only left that great company to conduct the investigations which re sulted in the successful employment of cyanide of potassium for the re covery of gold from its ores. In reply to a question put by an "Argus" re porter as to the object of his visit, he said: - "You. see,the North Mount Lyell mine has reached a very interesting stage in its...

Letters containing press matter should be sent to the Editor, or, if for our special columns, to those in charge of them, as, for instance, "Flamingo," "Pakeha," "Argus," etc. All business communications, including advertisements, should be addressed to the Business Manager. When the depression resulting from the financial panic was at its height a good deal of controversy took place on the question of the right or otherwise of the State to find work for the unem ployed. It is one of those questions which cannot be answered satisfac torily, for so much depends on the sur rounding circumstances. . When a national disaster, such as that which took place in 1892, occurs no one will contend that it was not the duty of the community as a whole to assist those who, from no fault of their own, were suddenly...

CORRESPONDENCE. LONGFORD WATER SUPPLY. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 January 1900

CORRESPONDENCL , LONGFORD WATER SUPPLY. (To the Editor.) Sir,-As Mr. M'Mahon's remarks in Thursday's issue may cause some mis understanding, please allow me to cor rect a few of his insinuations. In the first place, with regard to the diffi culties thrown in the way of the trust by nmembers as well as ratepayers, this was due chiefly to the determined man neor in which clause 55 of the Water 'Act has been ignored by him and his two supporters. Briefly; the clause is as follows:-"Before commencing any of the works, the trustees shall lay before the Governor-in-Council full de tails of the same for the purpose of expert investigation,and no works shall be undertaken until they are approved of by the Governor-in-Council, and no tice in writing of such approval re ceived by the trust." Now, in the plans sent down, the intake of the tur bine pump (which is the most impor tant item in the trouble) has been absent, 'in spite of all efforts to get it marked down according to the act.
