Stead’s review article concerned paying war reparations to the Transvaal and Free State and it asked for a judicial review to be held; see W.T. Stead "The Most Pressing Problem in South Africa Today" Review of Reviews vol 28 July 1904 pp.33-6. Stead had clearly sent the advance sheets (akin to proofs) of it for Schreiner to read.
