The Cairns Post. THURSDAY, APRIL 30, 1885. Guaranteed 700 Copies Weekly. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 30 April 1885

-- THURSDAY, APRIL 30, 1885. Guaranteed 700 Copies Weekly. FOB some time back it has been felt by tenauts in occupation of dwelling houses in Cairns, that the rents charged seemed in some instances excessive, and far beyond the prices for which similar accommodation eau bs pro- cured in other northern towns. A few years aga house rent here was almost nominal, the supply of buildings being m excess of the demand, but since tlirt we have been steadily forging ahead, adding to our population, and from a variety of other causes property of all kinds lias been steadily rising in value. But house-building of the class re quired for people of small means has not kept pace with the demand, so that house-proprietors can now make their own terms. This is what happens every- where under the same circumstances, and no exception can be taken to it as a matter of business. ¡Still it presses heavily on the man of small means, who looks on the item of house rent as so much money swamped without any...

Colonel Sir Henry Wilmot, M J»., Sir Saul Samuel. (Agent-General for New Sooth Wales), Mr. Garrick (Agent General for Queensland), and others. The Chairman having proposed "The Queen and Empress," next proposed " Success to the Empire Club," a toast which he was certain would be re- ceived with the utmost enthusiasm. He took it that the toast meant a great deal more than was expressed in thc words, because it was accepted by not only the members of the club, bût by those who came aiid had intercourse with. them. . (Hear, hear.) There were many clubs of Loudon gentlemen, where meetings were held for the pur- pose of gaining information, but this was a club which had a peculiar signifi- cance, inasmuch as it drew together the Greater Britain, in which they were all interested, and, which opened" m...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE, April 27. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 30 April 1885

SOUTH AUSTRAXIA. A DELAI DK, April 27. Captain Helms, of thc steamer Men- muir, which has just arrived from a trip round to Sourabaya, Somoraug, Batavia, and Singapore, mentions that when he left Batavia on Histor Mon- day two Russian ironclads were in port. On arrival at Singapore on the Sth inst, he found that sis days pre-, viouslv* three other ltu»un men-of-war vioited there,- and left in urvmt kante, from Russia. So great was their hurry that though they had ordered a large quantity of provisions they »tarted without having time to take them aboard. Water is scarce in Singapore, no rain having fallen there for three months, and each ship was apportioned a certain quantity of water every day. The men-of-war. got a water boat along- side, and as the conductors of the supply were about to serve them at the sam« rate of supply as was arranged with tlic other vessels in harbour, thc Russians sent their own mon ashore and took every drop of water, some sixty tons altogether, then wei...

=1 Local Items. A monster conger eel, measuring over 20ft in lemrtb, and weighing -about 301b, was caught in the inlet on Friday. Those wlio have partaken of it declare it to have been delicious in flavour. The D'Arcy Pratt, brigantine, arrived here on Tuesday from Hogianka, New Zea- land, with a consignment of dressed and undressed timber, mouldings, ic. The cargo appears to have been selected with care, but the very fact of 140,000 odd feet of timber being thrown on the local market shows that not only are oar mill-owners behind the age in introducing appliances for saving" labour, but even come what may, our New Zealand neighbours seem to be prepared to compete with us not only in timber, but in other marketable goods of which .we. may hear by and by. . An adjourned meeting of the promoters of a Building Society was held on Tuesday evening. Mr. Hook occupying the chair. The attendance was only moderate, but a long and animated discussion took place on the question as to whether t...
