The Cairns Post. THURSDAY, MARCH 20, 1884. Coercion. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 20 March 1884

Cairn* |îosi. THURSDAY, MARCH 20, ISS t. Coercion. AT the meeting held last week for the ostensible purpose of electing delegates to accompany à deputation to Brisbane, bnt ns was subsequently proved really as a manifesto on tho part of the followers of Mr. Griffith,.a motion was proposed by Mr. Kenny to- the effect "That thc CAIRNS POST does not represent the political opinions' of Cairns." The time was well chosen, or rather the meeting was well selected, for the purpose, ami being almost to a man adherents of the present Govern- ment, the motiou was carried. There ¡ was nothing in that proceeding to which exception could l e taken. The supporters of Mr. Griffith desired to renew their oath ,of fealty anil out- wardly exhibit their unchanged faith in his policy, and they thought the}' best could accomplish this by denouncing the journal that espoused the M'Jl wraith cause. But in thus legitimately making known their own views thev fell into two errors : firstly, in assuming that t...

A big brindle steer escaped from a herd that was being driven into a New York stock yard and ran into Central Park. At fir>t nobody took any notice of thc animal. Then several dirty-faced urchin» shouted, hooted and pelted ?tones at the «teer, which finallv com- menced to bellow, and then charged «bout the park with tail high in the air, nostril« dilated and head lowered. The tramps left their snug seats and fled for the street, while the nurses and their little charges fled in panie. Babies cried, women sercamcd, and the larger children clung to the skirts of their guardians. Inside of a minute the park was cleared from end to end, and the steer had full posessiou. lt nibbled at the flower beds and seemed to enjoy it. Then he gambolled and frisked about like a lamb.
