FOOTBALL MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 3 September 1885
FOOTBALL MATCH This match took place on Saturday after- noon, and, as the previous cricket match, was well attended by onlookers. The weather, though doubtful in the morning, turned out be a football day," as if made for the &nbsp; &nbsp; players. The Townsville players was repre- sented by a very strong team, captained by Mr. F. Rendall, whilst the local men had only been practicing for a week previous, and had not on any previous occasion played together ; in consequence of this the chances of the local men seemed very small indeed, and the betting in favour of Townsville was 3, 4 and even 5 to 1. Play began at half past three, and on ends being tossed for, MacNamara, the Cairns captain, chose the northern goal. The ball being kicked off by Finlay, the Cairns backs for a few minutes had some little trouble defending the goal, until a mark to Reid, who quickly brought the ball into play, sending the oval by a series of little marks, made principally by D. Wall, Drap...

Cook Election. MB. LUMLEY HILL AT COOKTOWN. | (Bt Euctbic TxxxoRAraL) I Cooktown, August 31. I Mm. Lubxet-Uhj. addressed a large and I enthusiastic meeting in the Town Hall on Saturday night. He said he caine forward entirely in the interests of the electors, and was not himself anxious about being re- turned. He would, if returned, give Mr. | Griffith his entire support, excepting on the questions of payment of members .and the Land Act. He thought that members should be above a payment of two guineas per day. With regard to the Land Act, it waa baaed on Henry George's theory of non-alienation of the land which was quite Utopian and only fit for ideal men. The lan! should be settled easily without any vexatious or pro- hibitory conditions. The State had no r%ht to expect full value for the land any more than he, as a beef-grower, expected to receive full value for the beef he sold at two- pence, but he never begrudged the butcher his profit. This applied equally with the State in d...

. «I»«r läUTopeaii. X«tter. \ (moa oca own coauueoNDsirr.^ - London, July 10. The change of Ministry pi ogresses quietly, and to the present time, where members of the House of Commons have had to seek re- election on their acceptance of office, they have in each case been returned by a con- siderably larger Conservative majority than at first elected them. The Liberals are sur- prised at the quietude with which they have been allowed to vacate their offices, and the business-like manner in which their opponents have taken to the woik of the country. Mr. H. Fowler, M.P., at the National Liberal Club, on July 8, said that the Tories had taught the Liberals a lesson by the manner in which they had changed their policy with regard to Ireland, and that when the Liberals returned to power the privileged classes could not expect the forces of the Government to be employed in what was little better than real collecting. Yon see that this member will not allow it pos- sible that the Conserv...

Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 3 September 1885
Oar Brisbane Letter. (moa oun own coitnanruxncxT.) Tan Colonial Treasurer'« Bmnn.if.1 statement, which was delivered on Tuesday last, took eT?ry one by surprise. It was remarkable chiefly for the almost cynical candour with which the same Government that lest year introduced the new Land Act as a measure which would greatly increase the revenue, and which carried a belief that ita success would enable them this year to reduce taxation, now came forward acknowledging that the revenue to be derived from it is " an Un- known quantity." and that the necessity for increased taxation is "chiefly" due to its failure. Whilst upon tins subject of the Land Act, I may mention that at the monthly Land Court, held yesterday at Too- woomba, there was not a single application for land. This is th» first time since 1876 that such n thing has happened.
