Our brisbane Letter. i (TOO* OU» o WK coEBïdrtixnnrr.) j Dr/BINO tîie last weet the Pacific Islanders Act Amendaient Bill was introduced in the Législative Assembly.

AVHATETEB maj Le said in opposition ' to local politics and local politicians we Terr much fear that so long as separate interests demand more than ordinary attention, our safeguard against listlessness or systematic neg- lect ou the part of the Government i must be found in the election of repre- sentatives who thoroughly understand thc nature of our requirements. These may indeed be briefly and forcibly put so ns to make a creditable contribution to the proceedings of the House ; but Government being practically a matter of party, only such aa are behind the «cenes know how much an earnest intelligent representative can do for his district without being accused of log- rolling. The Additional Members Bill givers thc Xorth two more mem- bers, viz., one for Townsville and another for the new electorate of the Musgrave.

OUT XeIg1iboni*s. [PEOST OUR OWX C0BSESPOXDEKT8.] ' HEKBEKTON. . October £>. QEITE aa uneventful week, and by no means a pleasant one in a weather point of view, wind and dust prevailing, with hovering clouds unsuccessfully endeavouring to emit rain, which, by the way, is badly wanted all through the district, although to-day occa- sional showers have fallen. I regret to have to intimate that an old respected identity of Cairns, in the person of Hugh Harrison, joined the great majority on Friday night last, after a long and lingering illness, lie was buried on the following day, and the funeral cortege bespoke forcibly the respect in which he was held. Poor Harrison ! save and except the screaching fiddles and cracked banjos, whose sounds were glorified in the first tent settlement of Cairns which occupied the area between the seaboard and the Customs reserve where the sub-collector's residence is now erected, his bagpipes sounded the first music at that port, and right merrily w...

¡Tirio»'wa«a^Üírge r (Fathering on the race, coarse on Friday, Ute prevailing opinion amongst spectators and those more directly interested in the results being that, taken aa a whole, they were the best races witnessed here. We may have had a larger field and more excitement, bnt nothing so genuine or free from the suspicion of foul play. No whisper cf collusion, no attempt at hustling or selling a race was muttered, and the han- dicappers are complimented for their sound judgment, as thc several events prove. The Zeus made a trip up the Inlet early in the ' morning, setting down her full compliment ~ of . passengers at S »slow and Derhatn's kwheg. From that point to the course is only a few minâtes walking. A number of private vehicles and hired conveyances drove out to the ground, and altogether there must have been about 400 persons present at the starting ot the second race, a number of visitors having come from Herherten and other outlying districts. It ia an unaccountable cir...

The Marquis of Salisbury, addressing a mectinif at Newport hist night declared that it was impossible for Great Britain to inter- fere by force of anns in Bonmelia. The policy of the British Government he said wool.I be to uphold Turkish rule wherever compatible with the welfare of the different nationalities over which the Sultan claimed snz&lt;rainty. The dominant object of the lîritish policy would he to preserve the peace of Europe. The Premier, in a lengthy speech, advocated considerable reform in local government, and the introduction of greater facilities for transfer of land. The Government, he stated, would reject any proposal from the Irish party, which in any degree threatened thc integrity of the Em- pire. Closer union between the colonies and the mother country, he~ considered, would be th...

Local Items. ' Mr. A. Taylor killed a carpet snake measuring Mitt long on Sunday close to the township boundary. The snake season is now in, but no doubt this particular victim had a blameless history, as carpet snakes are known to be harmless, though they cannot escape the prejudice attached to the species. The Katoomba, which left the anchorage on Tuesday for Sydney and Melbourne, took . 614 bags tin ore and 77 toes of sogar, the Hap Wah consigning 32 tons and the j Pyramid plantation -15 tons. The weekly j intermediate boats will continue to run j regularly for some time without any break, there being a large quantity of sugar at thc difiereat plantations awaiting shipment. The Coomba, ketch, from Bundaberg, entered the Barron Biver cn Sunday with a complete sawmill plant, owned by Mr. Mar- tin, of Bundaberg, who has been engaged for years in the timber trade. The new sawmill is to be erected at Cochrane's, Lily Rink ; the entire concern to be worked by steam-power. The ketch Jen...

Correspondence. | [We «lo not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our correspondents.] WEEKLY HALF HOLIDAY. . (To the Editor of the CAIEXS POST.) OIE,-An attempt was made some short time ago to induce the business people of Cairns to close their places of business, one after- noon in the weet, to allow their assistants time for that recreation so much needed in a climate like ours. The attempt failed in consequence of one or two objecting, and consequently the young mea of Cairns are denied a privilege enjoyed by those of almost all, if not all, our coast and inland to.vnships. The recent sports hero suggest a. renewal of the agitation, and I earnestly bring the matter under the notice of em- ployers again, ia the hope that they will sec their way to grant the concession desired. The public will appreciate sucha course, and will not be inconvenienced in tho least, hut will rejoice to see a much needed reform, and cheerfully " shop" at other times. The employees will teri'...
