The Cairns Post. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1885. Guaranteed 700 Copies Weekly. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 26 February 1885

ft\c 4fairn*¡ post. THTJBSDAY, ÏEBBUABY 2ö, 1885. Guaranteed 700 Copies Weekly. THE stat« of the money market in England is just now a subject of the greatest interest to Queenslauders, for ¡ thc progress of thc colony during thc I next few years depends almost entirely upon the response that may be made to our application to borrow. Our Parliament has passed a Loan-Bill for en millions, but are we likely to get it advanced ? that is the question. It is one that is extremely difficult to answer, as even the financial operations on the stock exchange find it im- possible to predict the rise or fall of the market for more than a few days in advance. During the last twelve months the Loudon money market lias been unusually favourable to colonial loans, and that under circumstances which a few years ago would hare made money difficult to obtain. During the past two ' or three years trade in England has been getting bad, until it is now all round worse than it ha 3 ever-been in thc memor...

The Affairs of New Guinea. (THE AUSTRALASIAN.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 26 February 1885

The Affairs of New Guinea. (THE ArsíB-iLAsiAX.) IF, a-i lias been stated, tbe questions arising out of the simultaneous annexa- tion of territory in New Guinea by Great Britain and Germany respec- tively are to be referred to a confer- ence, it will afford another striking proof of the imperative necessity which exists for placiiig the relations of the mother country with her colonies on an entirely different footing; for, in that conference, Australasia, whose interests will be most largely and vitally affected, will be wholly unrepre- sented. "We shall be bound to abide by the decisions arrived at, but we shall have had no voice whatever in influenc- ing or determining these decisions. The Imperial interests in New Guinea are relatively unimportant. But a great foreign power planting itself on that island, and establishing a naval station in its immediate vicinity, means very much to us. It means possible annoy- ance and probable danger. It means, in the event of a war between tha...

Correspondence. [We ilo not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our correspondente.] (To the Editor of the CAWXS POST.) SIB,-As a resident living near Abbott street I wish to point out to the Divisional Board, through the columns of your puper, the existing nuisances ot horses, goats, and pigs which are allowed to ramble the streets of Cairns at their own sweet will without let or hindrance. I notice you have frequently reminded the authorities of this nuisance, which has now existed for a long time. During the hot weather while the nights are so excessively sultry it is impossible to obtain any sleep in consequence of the noise created by the jingling of the bells placed on the horses. Now I do not think it is fair that the townspeople should be annoyed and in- convenienced by owners who allow their horses to run loose with bella around, the necks. Surely there is no necessity^ for town horse« to Have thia tippendale » bich keeps up a constant jingle through the night. T...
