Our Neiglibonrs. [TOOK OUB OWX COBBESfOICDKNTd.] HEBBEETON. August 14. The catarrUal epidemic alluded to in my last is disappearing, having visited about five-sixths of the population. The weather has been fine all the week, yet cold at nights, there being a difference of nearly 40 degrees in the temperatures of noon and midnight. Mining matters continue couleur de rose notwithstanding that the quotation for tin has receded to JEW per ton. There is not a claim in the district being worked that is not satisfactory, and considerable activity prevails in all the westward centres. The alluvial hero is being attended by an in- creased number of men, and when the new company commences operations it »ill encourage plenty more. There is not the slightest doubt of its ultimate success, and the present desideratum is to accelerate operations. Election matters have no exciting effect here; there ig little heed taken about the second member for Cook or the first for Musgrave, and but for refere...

The Cairns Post. THURSDAY, AUGUST 20, 1885. Guaranteed 700 Copies Weekly. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 20 August 1885

$í% Çairmi ^lo.sí. THURSDAY. AUGUST 20. 18S3. Guaranteed 700 Copies Wèeklf. Since our last issue a considerable change has come over the prospects of the. coining election of a parliamentary representative. During that period Mr. ~R. A. Kingsford, the Opposition candidate, has felt the pulse of the electors of this part of the-Cook con- stituency, where he would have liad to look for his chief support, and has found it beat so feebly in bis favour that recognising discretion to be the better part of valour he has retired from the fray and left Sir Thomas M'llwraith to find another and more popular champion of his cause to woo afresh the too evidently waning love of this [erst» hile strongly attached elec- torate. Xo one has as yet been men- tioned as ready or willing to step into the shoes so lately vacated by Mr. Kingsford, nor do we think it will be an easy task to find a candidate dis- posed to-submit to the expense and undergo the severe toil of canvassing this vast and rugged e...
