THE FAMINE IN CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

THE FAMINE IN CHINA. The Lord Mayor of London sent tbe follow ing letter to the Times : — ' The reports of the terrible famins in three districts of China have now been confirmed and amplified by further telegrams. It is im possible to fully estimate the amount of dis tress which exists, but the famine is. without doubt more widespread and disastrous than that of 1878. when over 13.000,000 people were said to have perished. This is enough to show how appalling it lain its magnitude. Follow ing so quickly the Yellow Biver disaster, it has etrained-JthB resources of the Chinese Government ^beyond their power, the expense of repairing the breach caused by the overflow having -alone involved an expenditure of two and a half millions sterling. It therefore appears to me that this is one of those occasions when it is my duty as Loid Mayor to call upon all to help in raising funds for those who cannot help themselves. I would make this appeal on the following grounds:— (1) The suffering is...
