AS OTHERS SEE US. SYDNEY, July 3. (Received July 3,1889, at 1 p.m.)
The ‘ Sydney Morning Herald’ has a leading article on the condition of New Zealand. It says that the gratifying position the colony now holds is mainly due to the administration of the Atkinson Ministry, and it is very questionable whether the position would have been brought about had Sir Robert Stout continued in power, even had he reconstructed his Cabinet. While Sir Julius Vogel presided over the Treasury the present state of affairs would have been quite impossible. It goes on to say that the great increase of exports and the rapid advance of the colony’a securities show that public confidence within as well as outside of the colony has been restored. Looking at the situation from all points, the ‘ Herald]’ considers that Sir Harry Atkinson is pretty certain to remain in power until the expiry of this Parliament, and it further says : “It is best for New Zealand that it should be so.”
