THE EASTERN QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 4 February 1898
THE EASTERN QUESTION. The aspect of affaire in the Far Fast indicate they are in a very unsettled state, and war, with all its concomitant evils, faces ns once more. Warships from nearly all the Powers are being sent to China. The trouble seems to He in several Powers extorting concessions from China in the shape of ports, for their own exclusive use \ also trying to injure British commerce and influj ence in that direction, and Russia tryj ing to coerce China to reject Britain's loan proposals. Russia, France, and Germany seem to be acting concertedly in the matter, the latter urging Austria and Italy to follow her example, by sending warships to China. The old sore between England and Germany over the J&mieson episode in the Transvaal has not apparently healed up yet, ! hence her action in coinciding with Russia and France. Perhaps the great Jubilee celebrations, held last year, lias been an object lesson to some of the Powers, show ing the large number of possessions and ...

G. H. Reid and Sir John Forrest—got at loggerheads, and Bome very uncomplimentary remarks were exchanged, before the meeting adjourned. With the present sitting, there is an appearance of every effort being, made to formulate the basis upon which the Commouwealth of A astral ia shall be effected, and the question of ultimate cohesion of I these colonies into an indivisible whole, will be looked forward to with the wildest enthnsiasm by real ont-and-ont federationists. At the Sydney convention, it was hinted that as far as Western Australia was concerned, " the time was not yet" for her to be able to take a part in Federated Anstvalia, bat there will be a different opinion at the present meeting, a...

THE " TIMES " COMMENTS. FEESH LOAN PROPOSALS, j Loudon, January 31. I A report has been received from the far JSasfc confirming the annooaoemeat recently made that the British squadron at Port Arthur, are 1 leaving for Hong Kong. It is stated this is regarded locally as a sigu of weakness on the part o£ Great Britain. The " Times," in an article dealing with the situation in China, expresses a view that the opening of the port of Talienwnn to the cottimence of the world, will be unnecessary, if assurances are given that Port Arthur will be made a free port. France is reluctant to support Rusaia's menaces, if Talienwnn is opened to the world's commerce. China has suggested that the loan which she requires for the Japanese indemnity, should be taken half by Russia and half by Great Britain, on her own (China's) financial terms. As regards the other conditions, these shonid be adjustable by the two creditor couutries between themselves. A Renter's despatch has been received from Pekiu,...
