CABLE MESSAGES. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDETNS.) EURPOEAN NEWS. LONDON, April 18. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 23 April 1885

CABLE aSsAGlS~ I . -. ' {YSO^OVt OWX COKRESl'OXDKXTS.) ETJBOPEAN NEWS. Loxuox, April IS. Although nothing further definite has transpired to justify the growing conviction, prospects of peace are now increasing.

The Cairns Post. THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 1885. Guaranteed 700 Copies Weekly. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 23 April 1885

THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 1S85. Guaranteed Î00 Copies Weekly. "WUT does Russia -want, war with Eng- rana? Tlio oatoniiblo cmuo, m» »ll the world knows, is that the Afghan boundary is still undefined, though Russia herself was supposed to define it to her satisfaction years ago. lt is just as well to bear in mind that the Indian authorities arc quite as much to blame as .Russia herself is for post- poning this settlement, one Viceroy af ter another being too timid to discuss the merits of the debatable ground. Sir Peter Lumsden, with a small escort, was sent as special commissioner to meet the Eussian envoys at either Herat or Candahar, but strangely enough, the very person appointed to meet him did not put in an appear- ance until he found a pretext first of making war on the Afghans. "We refer to General Komoroff, who tells his .own story in that artless mauuer so charac- teristic . of his race. Russia, he pre- tends, did not seek to make war, her mission to that part of the world being ...

St. John's Church. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 23 April 1885

St. John's Church. THE usual Easter meeting was held on the Tuesday evening in Easter weet, but «wing to the small attendance it was decided, after some discussion, to adjourn the meeting until after evening service on the following Sunday. On both occasions the truth, so often stated that there are only two or three gentlemen in the town who take an active interest in matters pertaining to the public welfare, was amply illustrated. It should have been a meeting of the whole congrega- tion of St, John's Church, but only half-a dozen gentlemen remained behind after the -T»» takK» af ¿kw "rn íTiTí splEByaTj«fsT pally to : receive the report of the cfiwrefe wardens, and to elect officers for the present year.

Campaigning in the Desert. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 23 April 1885

Campaigning in thc Desert. THE following is a description of a desert maren, by the correspondent of thc DAILY NEWS: _ When the column and convoy under Sir Herbert Stewart's command left Korti, very few" men in it probably had any idea that anything more intolerable than the glare and heat of tropical sun- shine on desert sands would fall to their share. Officers of experience had tried to impress upon them the necessity of self-denial when thirst assai'ed them and the impossibility of securing more than a limited supply of water between their starting point and the wells of Gakdul. Laudable resolutions were no doubt formed by everybody, but these broke down lamentably under stress of a sultry march the second day, with the result that before a dozen miles had been covered many men had exhausted the contents of their water bottles. To make matters worse, a very large pro- portion of the uiusaks used for carry- ing a reserve supply had been pricked by mimosa thorns, and leaked so bad...

' Oar Hrisbane Letter. - (FBUM ODK OWN coBBE8P<n«nnrr.) j AVK have just received telegraphic news which seems to show that ilicre is very little chance of- avoiding war between Kiighmd and Russia,' as the forces of the latter power have entered Afghan territory, and attacked and defeated the Afghan forces whilst negotiations for peace were going on, and as Kiig- hmd had just publicly assured the Ameer of-her readiness to assist him in maintaining the independence of his country, and received pledges from him in return, she can scarcely draw back now and leave him and his people to their fate, even if it was not her own battle as well as their's that has to be fought, lt is to be feared, however, that not even this last proof of Russian treachery will open Mr. Gladstone's eyes to the value of his Russian friends professions, and we shall probably hear of their gaining other advantages, whilst the KngÜHh fon-cu aro kept buck by 'pretended negotiations for pence, lt is repor...
