QUEENSLAND SUGAR CANE j INDUSTRY. In thc Federal Senate recently Sen- ator Pearce asked the Vice-Président of the Executive Council whether the Government had noticed tho action of the Queensland Legislative Council in rejecting provisions /'or extending Wages Boards to thc sugar-growing industry; also, whether the Govern- ment had noticed that the Johnstone River Sugar Plnnters' Association of Queensland had congratulated the Lc ,'gislative Counc¿l on the above ac- tion?

Sold! [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 3 December 1907

Sold! t The brie-à-brao mania as is well known, sometimes leads enthusiastic collectors into amusing pitfalls. A French connoisseur látel; entered a Paris .« curiosity shop," and saw a beautiful Dresden rase. Asking the price, ha was told £40, " and," said the dealer, " if I had the pair they would be worth £.200." M.A. offered £20, and came several days running to renew his proposal, but in vain. * One day a man came to M.A's. apartments to show him some old china plates, and induced him to visit his shop in thc Biitignolles. To his surprise and de-' light M.A. saw in an obscure corner of the shop a vase exactly similar to the coveted Dresden, and eagerly secured it for £48, with the assurance that tho pair, if forthcoming, would be worth £400. M.A. rushed off to tho first dealer, and offered him his own price for the vase. " Ah, sir," said ho, " you come too late. 1 sold it yesterday to a dealer at the Batignolles 1 "

It now bchovfcs the townspeople-^-or some enterpris- ing person or thc council-to sink a well in' the bed of the river, "whereb¿ go6d water can always be obtained. Owing .to the long dry stages on the Winton end of the Boulia road, car- riage has gone up '£4 per ton, and if the drought continues, they will bc lucky, if they avert a famine. But before that'should take place, thc ca- mel could bo called into requisition as a .beast of burden, as was the case' in the. last "old mah" drought."

SmPPJXO AT CAIRNS. Thc State shipping collections ferr .the month of November at thc port of Cairns amounted to £192 12s Sd. made up as follows:-Pilotage £119 2s Sd, (Gabo and Qlan Robert- son; Harbor rales, £50 4s Sd, and tonnage dues £14- 5s 4d. The latter represents our trade with the East, and- shows a great falling oil as corn- ered with the sanie month last year. When it is slated that 56 vfcs 'eels entered our channef during No- vember, with a tonnage of 43,883 - tons it will be seen at a glance that n- large number of vessels come and go andr never pay a fraction towards the up-kecp- of thc port.

The amount - collected in dues would not Wave been sufficient to have paid the pilot's month's salary, not to mention his crew and the oil* consumed in the lamps.
