Power of Russia. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 10 July 1889
Power .of Russia The grand total of the forces Russia has to do her fighting when necessary, numbers 7,000,000 and this number could be largely added to, if needed. The armies of France number 4,000,000 men. The alliance of the remaining great powers of Europe against these two nations unites in one great body the troops of England, Italy, Germany, Austria and Turkey to the number of at least »,000,000. The 'peace' army of Russia comprises 600,000, and the total num ber of troops which France and- Russia can call at once together will number 8,000,000, with an almost unlimited field to draw from in the latter country. In estimating the available forces of Russia it, is cut down from 7,000,000 to 4,000,000, on account of tie difficulty of getting troops together in a short time ; but the feat remains that what ever nation bumps up against Russia will have a hard customer to tackle, and the most formidable of all European nations. Of the other nations, England can furnish 620,000 men,...
Royal Annuities. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 10 July 1889
Royal Annuities. The following telegram appears in.the last issue of the Daily Telegraph :— ' In the 'House of Commons today Mr. W. H. 'Smith, First Lord of the Treasury, moved ' for the appointment of a select committee to ' inquire into the general question of Par 'liaiueutary grants to members of the ' Eoyal family. The motion was supported 'by Mr. Gladstone and a seloction of his ' followers and was agreed to.' No doubt this motion was instigated by the number of Royal marriages on the tapis, and a probable increaso of Royal children to be provided for in the usual way, i'. e. out of the National Exchequer. Why there has not been a revo lution about these enormous grants to the host of Royal followers is inexplicable, but it is only in keeping with the blind conservatism of the Conservative party in England. We venture to predict that the outcome of the select committee will be, at least, to put some limit on the Eoyal Aunuity business.

Incorporation. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 10 July 1889
Incorporation. We have Jieard that during the past week Severn! townspeople discussed very enthusi astically the necessity of incorporating our town, and that in the course of a few days active steps will be taken in thiB direction. Any movement tending towards advancing Moruya (and incorporation would be a big step in this way) will, of course, have our hearty support in every way, aud we heartily hope that those who take the matter of In corporation in hand will be successful, and thus . remove a long-standing disgrace from our ancient town. We cannot see anything but the best results from Incorporation, and when our streets and paths are put into proper order, property owners will have reason to bless thn day that civic government was introduced into JHornya.

The Hon. James White. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 17 July 1889
The Hon. James White. 'Tis a thousand pities that the same amount of confideucu canuot be plated in the majority of horse owners as that reposed in the Hon. Jauics White. What a differeuco thorowouldbeinthe turf, to be sure, and how many thousands of pounds would fall into the pocket of their rightful owners, which under existing circumstances are ,i:..A.fart iWn nf-lipr null wroncr channels. The hon. gentleman has only to start, a horse, when it will be bound to sec a short price owing to the public being Batlsfbrt that they will get a straight run for their money. There isn't a horse in his stable, nor one that ever retired lioiti it, without bcinj? the pos sessor of a full mouth. This reminds us of a little story which we will repeat. A jockey was met by a friend, who observed that one of tha appendages on his watchchain was a horse's tooth. With amazement the friend remarked, ' ))ear roe, I never thought yon pulled them so hard as to pull their teeth out P— Referee.
