A FRENCH PROGNOSTICATION. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
A FRENCH PROGNOSTICATION. England's immense Empire may fall to pieces at any moment.

AFTER THE WAtR. It must be desirable that every opportunity should be taken to con vince the Government of the un doubted fact that the nation would 'bitterly resent being deprived of the legitimate fruits of victory.
