Destructive Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 22 January 1885

Destructive Fire. A destructive fire occurred at the Pyramid Company's plantation, Mulgrave Biver, at 3 o'clock a.m., yesterday, the 21st instant. From particulars we have gathered from a gentleman who was on the spot and wit- nessed the accident, it appears that a stack of firewood placed in the boiler-boose, and .near to the furnaces, must have ignited, and caused the conflagration. It was first discovered by one of the Kanakas, who gave the alarm to Mr. Lon- don, the manager, who was quickly upon the [scene, and by his indefatigable energy and cool demeanour, prevented the flames spreading to the adjoining building, in which is erected the muí and machinery. The fire, however, destroyed the whole of the building containing the boilers, also the store-house attached to it, which contained a large supply of stores for the plantation, and_ all the connections of steam-pipes, Ac, between the boiler-house and the mill are totally destroyed. By the aid of buckets of water filled from t...

Imperial Federation. ' " (The ArsTBAiABiAX.) j The formation in the mother country of an " Imperial Federation League" is an event of no small importance ; not merely because, as the Times says, it "baa placed conapicuoualy upon record the growth and mavement of tho national conviction« on this question, but because it is the firat practical step toward» the "achievement of one of the ermüdest object» which can enlist the sympathies and inflame the patriotic ambition of English people in all parts of the world.

By good fortune, however, Dr. E. Matthew Owens took the lad under h¡3 care, and by...
