The Cairns Post. THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 1884. The Timber Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 27 March 1884
THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 18S-K The Timber Industry. lix dîscussiug the merita of the Cairns Hcrbcrtou route foi the proposed rail- way and exhibiting its many advantages over the route from Port Douglas thc timber industry has always held a prominent position, hut it is doubtful if thc extent of this trade has been fully realised, or the importance of its influence over the financial success of the railway properly understood. The primary object of the railway, however, apart from its monetary success, is to open up thc country and make available thc hidden wealth it contains, and to attain this end it must be taken by a route that will allow of the timber trade being conducted at a profit, which eau only be accomplished by the coast terminus being fixed at Cairns. The conclusion has not been arrived at by id/e assumption or unreasoning bias, but by careful calculations and practical investigations by cminently practipal men. The figures we shall adduee in support of our argument, that t...

The Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 27 March 1884
The Railway. TiiK opinions expressed by the Minister for Works to the deputations from Cairns and Port Douglas with regard to the probable route of thc railway will gladden many hearts in this dis- trict, and infuse new life and vigour into all who have cast in their lot with thc fortunes of Cairns. Mr. Miles in his interview with the deputations has given vent to expres- sions that aro equivalent to saying that the railway will be taken from Cairns to Herberton. He has not said so in so many words ; in fact, he has said he cannot at present give any definite in- formation on the subject, but lie has said that he shall abide by the decision of the surveyors,' and with the same breath informs us that that decision has been made in favour of Cairns. No more favourable replv, short of thc final decision of thc Government, could have been desired, lt says that the railway will be taken by the best route, and competent judges have declared that route to be between Cairns and Herberton.
