LATEST BY WIRE. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] &nbsp; QUEENSLAND THORNBOROUGH, September 9. Mr. F. Gill addressed the electors here last night, Mr. Buls in the chair. Mr. Gill spoke strongly on the railway question, and decidedly against Macrossan's motion. He said that the best route having already been decided upon by competent engineers of un- doubted integrity, any farther delay would be ridiculous waste of time. He considered no comparison could be made between the ports-of Cairns amd Port Douglas, and if re- turned he would firmly support the Cairns route. A vote of confidence was unanimously carried. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; HERBERTON, September 7. &nbsp; Mr. Lumley-Hill addressed the electors &nbsp; here on Saturday night.

Another Northern City Forming. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 17 September 1885
Another Northern City Forming. IT is only a short time in the age of a boy that where Cairns now is was nothing but scrub. We remember .the time- it seems but a few months ago-when this now ascen- dant city was but a waste bit of land on the bank of a comparatively unknown inlet. In these few years a town has risen, which, for its position, general appearance, and sur- roundings, and it is the seaport of that vast country extending to the Gulf, bid3 fair to become the most importait town in Northern Queensland. Land which was scarce worth the buying has increased in value far beyond the dreams of the most sanguine of even three-year ago residents. All the adjuncts of civilisation on the most modern principles are fast becoming a part of ourselves, and no town of ita age can boast of the sub- stantial progress of Cairns. Kot only does the increased value of real estate apply to the Municipality itself, but beyond its con- fines we find country lands assuming values far beyond even an...

THE DEBATE. BRISBANE, September 16. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 17 September 1885
THE DEBATE. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; BRISBANE, September I6 &nbsp; The Hon. W. Miles, Minister for Works, moved, yesterday, in the Assembly, that the plans, &c, of the first section of the Cairns- Herberton railway, including the wharf line, be approved. In bringing forward his mo- tion Mr. Miles gave a short history of the fight which had taken place over the rival routes, and detailed the number of surveys that had been made, and which had led the engineers to adopt the Cairns route. He &nbsp; said that every consideration had been given to all that had been said in favour of the Port Douglas route, and that whenever they came to sift the reasons self interests were found to be at the bottom of them. The Government had come to the conclusion that the proper route was from Cairns, where the line would start from a good harbour, where the operations of a dredge for two or three months would enable the whole of the Royal navy...
