Six,-Having visited the beet-root iwmnfictaring districts with toe riew of obtaining information into ita growth, manufacture, &e., I now give those interested the result of my in- vestigation. First, with reference to the German sugar bounty. The excise duty is 80 pfennigs per 50 keilograms (1 cart)., equal to 16s per ton on beetroot delivered into the manufactories, all of which are under strict control of Customs. The duty rebated by Government on sugar exported is 9 marks (9s) per cwt on raw sugar, 11 marks per cwt on refined loaf, and 10 marks 30 pfennigs per cwt on other kinds of refined sugar. The basis of this rebate is the as- sumption that lljcwt beetroot are re- quired to produce lent of raw sugar, and this llicwt at 80 pfennigs equals the 9 marks per cwt rebated on ship- ment. The return» on loaf and other reined sugars are based in proportion as above. The calculation that...

Separation. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 29 January 1885

Separation. ExTCACT from pamphlet issued by the North- ern Separation League : (oOJCOLCnSD.) Geographically, the Northern Mail Ser- vice suits every port North of Cape Palmer- ston better than any other, and it is well known that the service is not looked upon with the same favour ia the Southern capital as it is in Northern Queenaland. Whatever may be the opinion of the Northern people on the subject, the fore- going figures will tend to snow our position at the present time. Whether we are ripe for separation or not, a careful comparison of the population, imports, exports, revenue, and expenditure, and the requirement* of the pastoral, agricultural, mining, commer- cial, and geaeral interest ia 18C0 and 18*1, should determine that question. We must bear ia mud that, without blam- ing either the patt or the present Govero weats for dhat would appear neglect, the colony has been growing so rapidly as to get beycad their control, and that they are pledg- ing oar credit virtually wit...
