The Cairns Post. THURSDAY, JUNE 25. 1885. Guaranteed 700 Copies Weekly. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 25 June 1885

^% Cairns jîost. I THURSDAY, JUNE 25. 1885. Guaranteed 700 Copies Weekly. THE run ou agricultural land in" this district during thc last two years has beeu almost without precedent in the history of Sorthern Queensland, though it munt he confessed that a good num- ber of investments were entered into for purely speculative purposes. In ! spite of the ably written theories of the author of " Progress and Poverty," it is hard to convince men that it is more iniquitous to traffic in land than it is to buy and sell ordinary wares and chattels. Many of those who have acquired land under the old Act argued thus :-Those areas of rich, sugar lands must advance in price as the demand becomes greater, and the " unearned increment" will be a handsome addition to the original cost at some future time, especially if sugars continue to advance and cheap labour procurable.-It is. the unex- pected that more, frequently, occurs in tliis mutable world of ours, and instead of sugars advancing, it thre...

THE result of tte Government sale of town allotments which took place on Mondar vas a surprise even to those constant buyer* who hare become accustomed at each successive sale to a large advance on previous prices, the very spirited bidding and high prices realised being quite unexpected by all who were acquainted with the general dulness prevailing throughout the. colony, and the exceptional tightness of money in the local market. Still, that the prices obtainod were not inflated or run up beyond reason in the excitement of competition, has since been proved by subsequent dealings in thc lots then disposed of having; taken place at en- hanced prices. Small as the sale was, only ten allotments being catalogued, several bidders from distant parts of the colony were present, and succeeded in securing about half the lots offered, the rest being taken locally. Mr. B. T. Hartley, the Acting-land Commissioner, conducted the sale, which consisted of two and a half acres of land,...

He did not give any definite answer to this request, but it is clear that if farmers are to bc assisted in their business with public money other elastics will claim the same assistance, and of course the miners are just as well entitled to have crushiug" ma- chinery erected for them, and wheat growers to have public flour mills set up at their doors.
