Municipal Election. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 23 July 1885

Municipal Election. THE first election of councillors for the newly-formed borough of Cairns was held on Saturday last, and passed ot! most quietly, and without causing the slightest flutter of excitement. The singular absence of in- terest in so - most important an election proceeded: from the small number of rate- payers entitled to vote, owing to the list of voters being taken batu the Parliamentary electoral roll for the district, and only those registered under the qualification of house- holder or freeholder being entitled to vote at the first election ot aldermen for a new municipality. By this provision of the law only fifty-seven ont of over three hundred ratepayers were eligible to vote or offer themselves as candidates for the office of aldermen, so that from being a general elec- tion carried out by the whole body of rate- payers the election of Saturday became re- duced to an election by thirty-four rate- payers of nine of their number, and BO di- vested the proceedings...

Thc Üidepehdeiice which äti'me of the joints of the Ministerial tail had been threatening to dkßiäy in speeches mad« dUrihg the recess has vanished. As I foretold some means of squaring eaeh malcontent has been found, and they are all prepared to heep silent and rote according to order again. The Ministry, therefore, are enabled to ride the high horse, as Mr. Griffith did when in reply to comments on his action in employing Mr. Buckland, the member for Bulimba, as a paid member of the Polynesian Commission, he boldly ac- knowledged that he had characterised the payment of members for such ser- vices hg tie other tide as bribery and purchase of votes, but contended that he and his supporters were known to be so much more honest than their opponents t...

3Í% Cairns past TIIUBSDAY, JULY 23, 18S5. Guaranteed 700 Copies Weekly. . THE session of Parliament lias now fairly commenced, and it is evident that. the strength of parties iu the Legislative Assemhly remains unal- tered. However discontented some of the memlient- .ot - the "Ministerial .mn-, jority liave been, with the policy and administration of their "liaders, means have been found to recall them to their allegiance, and the Ministry .will have a majority during the present session, at any rate sufficient to carry their measures. Those measures aa enume- rated in the Governor's speech are not of the first importance, and if no at- tempt be made to shape one or two of them so aa to secure unfair advantage to the party in power, it is probable that the debates ou them will be moderate in tone, and that thc session will not be a protracted one. An amendment of the Land Act is promised to restore to selectors the privilege of selection before survey, which waa taken away from them...
