Peace or War? [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 May 1899
Peace or War I The Czar's Peace Con ference was to meet this month afc The Hague, which is the seat of the States General in Holland and the usual residence of the Court, though Amsterdam retains the nom inal title of capital of the Nether lands. The result of the conference will be eagerly awaited by those who long for the goal of universal peace. The friendly alliance just concluded between Great Britain and Russia has raised hopes in that direction. The latter possesses the greatest army in the world, the former the largest fleet, and as they have agreed to define their interests in a friendly way, the other nations are less likely to run the risk of incurring war.

THE GREAT RACE OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 May 1899
THE GREAT RACE OF THE FUTURE. QUESTION of considerable interest to every boy and girl to-day is this : Which is to be the great race of the future ? English I and American magazines lun e lately been devoting much space to specu lation on the subject. The leading races of to-day are the Anglo- Saxon, to which we belong ; the German race, including the Prussians, and other subjects of the Kaiser, to gether with the people of Austria ; the Slavs, includings the people of Russia, Hungry, and Poland ; and the Latins, the people of France, Italy, Spain, etc. Which of the four is to become the leading race of the coming age ? Not the Latins, we think, for the Anglo-Saxons have outstripped them on all hands ; Spain is humbled, Portugal has but little of her once great empire, and the influence of France and of Italy is, without doubt, on the wane. > We do not think the Germans will become the leading race, for though they probably have the most power I ful army to-day, they have not j u...

Wreck. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 May 1899
Wreck. On 10th May it be came known that the Loch Sloy, an iron ship of 1225 tons, had been wrecked on the morning of 24th April off the south coast of Kangaroo Island, South Australia. The ship was on a voyage from Glasgow to Melbourne, laden with gunpowder, bricks, iron goods, whisky, beer, drapery, and general goods, and was 108 days out when she struck. Of her crew of 28 and 6 passengers, only four reached land in an uninhabited part of the island. They endured terrible suffer- ings, wandering about in the bush without food. Mr. Kilpatrick, the passenger, remained near some water, and after a diligent search had been carried on for some days his dead body was ultimately found. One of the sailors reached a settler's house, and men started out to find the others. The other two sailors have thus been rescued.
