Another Northern City Forming. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 24 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, bids fair to become the most important 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 patt of ourselves, and no town of ita age can boast of the sub- stantial progress of Cairns. Not 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 ...

Our Neigliboin-s. [FEO!! Otrit OWN COEBESPOXDEXTS.] HEBBEBTON. September 18. THE Cook election, up this way, was about as dull an affair as it was possible to be ; not the slightest excitement or interest dis- played. There were only 2*.l Totes recorded here, and 83 at Watsonville. Thc welcome news anent the almost unanimous vote for the railway plans absorbed general atten- tion, and relieved the anxiety' of the com- munity generally. However, thanks to the House of Assembly, the claims of Herberton hai-e been recognised, and Cairns is defi- nitely to be the cc-partner ia. the railway speculation. Personally, there has never been a doubt upon my mind as to thc result from the beginning, and the event brings old memories to mind that there are those extant who years ago believed and advocated that the port of Cairns would assert it i superiority. The bar, I take it, ison accumu- lation of centuries upon centuries, and still large vessels have cleared it.' A month's dredging will hav...

They opposed the motion, but their own followers were so strongly against them that they did not venture to call for a divi- sion. I believe that further information has been obtained of the way in which the New Guinea Islanders were tutored bsforo giving their evidence before the Eoyal Commission, and this may perhaps come out if any in- ' quiry is made, which accounts for the very strenuous opposition of the Government to the appointment of this committee.
