Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 11 June 1885

Our lfrisbaiic Letter. (('BOX OUE ÛWS COI£BESH>NI>EXT.) PEACE with Russia seems finally set- tled for the present, England consent- ing to thc appropriation by the Czar of as much of Afghanistan as he can com- fortably manage at the present time, and he requiring a year or two to push on his railways to the new frontier before he eau advance further with ad- vantage to himself, lu consequence of this the Government is already be- ginning to snub tho volunteers down here. The Hervice» of the "fortitude Valley 'Company - haro ju»t> been de- clined, and the Naval Brigade, who have been discharged from the Gay- undah, arc now writing, to the Press complaining that thev hare been dis- charged unpaid. It is no secret that our military officials do not like the volunteers. They wish the men to enter the defence force, so as to como under the stricter discipline of martial law, but the defence force is unpopular, and though volunteers are ready to come forward in all directions, re...

THE sudden advance in tin couieV very I opportune at this time, and will serre to revive the hopes oE claimholders in the "Wild River district, who liare had to contend against serious difficulties for the last three years. ïhe Loxoox Mixrxo JoncfAi of April ll, speaking of the tin market, says :--"Cornish, tin mining Las seen its best days, and for the past ten years has been maintain- ing an, uninterrupted and painful struggle for existence." Cornwall's ditti-ulty is our opportunity. That tin mining has been languishing in Herber- ton is too painfully apparent, foi though the minerals are proven to exist there in the greatest abundance there is no capital to unearth them. Capi- talists will not invest there, we fear, under existing circumstances, since thc pnce ot carnage admits of but too small a margin of profit to the in- vestor.

"La Gloire." (THE DAILY OBSERVER.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 11 June 1885

"La Gloire." (THE BAILY " OBSERVER.) I So thc Franco-Chinese war is over at last, and the French have gained neither money nor credit hy it. We way ex- pect to hear, however, that France will heal her wounded honour by turning her arms against Madagascar now, aird slaughtering a few thousand Hovas, who, being armed for the most part with spears only, can scarcely make much of a fight against breech-loaders. Leon told a story "of an Irishman who, being hound over to keep the peace towards ". all ' her Majesty's subjects," exclaimed, as he went out of court, "the Lord have mercy on the first foreigner I meet." The French people seem of late years to have been actu- ated by somewhat the same spirit. Crushed .by Germany, plundered of two of their richest provinces, audof an enormous money contribution;.and not to dariug again measure themselves with their conquerors in a war of re- venge, they looked round for some people on whom they might safely avenge the defeats they had sustained. ...

Herberton Mining Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 11 June 1885

Herberton Mittag Notes. . IT ia satisfactory to have to report a decided improvement in mining matters in this dis- trict during the pasfmontK" * This "can only be attributed to the increase in the price of metal. The low price of tin and the heavy charges for carriage to the coast are two ol the greatest disadvantages we have been labouring under. The permanency of the field continues to be satisfactorily proven every day, and appearances at the present point to a reaction from the dull time* setting in. All over the district the mines that have, done much to settle communities 1 in their immediate localities continue to make fresh developements, while new finds, conseqaent on the presence of these com- munities, are being made. At Irvinebank especially this is notice- able. The Albion and Barrossa daims are turning out good silver ore in large quan- tities, and the Great Southern promises tc be one of the most extensive, if not thc goods crushimr» have bees aeat im ? from thm dire...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE, June 13. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 18 June 1885

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE, June 13. A shocking tragedy occurred at Stanley-street, Xorth Adelaide, yester- day afternoon. A man named Alfred Lines went into a house occupied by a man and woman, who were living to- gether under the name of O'Connor. Lines immediately shot the woman in thc breast, killing her almost instantly. O'Connor ran into the house next door for protection, but Lines followed him and shot him dead in the front room, after which the murderer rushed out of the house and shot himself dead on the footpath. Very little is known of the parties. A letter was found on the body of Lines, addressed to Joseph Lines, Kooringa, which read as fol- lows :-" Adelaide, June 12.

Onr Brisbane Letter; " (FROM OUR OWN COUKESPÜNDENT.) SIE Thomas M'Iwraitb has returned from his Northern trip sooner than was expected, not having gone beyond Rockhampton. It is said, however, that he will visit Townsville before the meeting of Parliament. Parliament is to meet on the 7th of next month, aud the sanie-day that the notice was issued a GAZETTE came out withdrawing the late obnoxious timber regulations, and substituting others whieh are uiuclrniorc favourable to the timber-getters. Cf course it is said by the opponents or the Ministry that the meeting of Parliament caused them to make theso concessions which they had before refused to the deputations that waited on them. Mr. Miles has also attempted to conciliate the railway contractors by abolishing that iniquitous clause in the contracts which makes the Chief En- gineer sole judge of all disputes with- out any appeal from his decision. The clause which Mr. Miles proposes to substitute for it is, however, worse than th...

At Coolgarra an alluvial tin discovery has been reported, from which satisfactory results are being made. The Herberton alluvial is being worked with s^reat energy, and if the parties can snccessfally master the water they are sure of the tin.
