The Ci*t foundation log was laid on the 13th nf February, and considering the large plant, one can say the work was done in record time. The Battery has been erected under the supervision of j Mr C. F. Mathea, who can be cnn I gratulated upon having completed such alargo job in ao short a time. There is but very little doubt that thia mill will be a boom ti the district.

From Our Point of View. BELLENDEN- The trial ,s"rve>' of *he KER permanent tramway line MlIT in connection with the MILL; Bellenden-Ker C. M. Co. is now approaching completion. The survey runs south from the mill site for about;eight mile;, to Babinda Creek, and to the north for a similar distance. This line will tap nearly the whole of the land which is likely to be put into the Company, but it is hardly likely that the Company will be able» to construct over 16 miles of perrhanient ; tramway 1 for' the first crushing. It is this doubt -which operates to keep back the planting of cane. Those farmers and owners of land whose properties are situated some miles away from the mill site naturally look towards those who are more favorably located, to show their bona fides, before going to the expense of putting their land under cane. For instance, the Sandeman Estate is within a mile and a-haif of; the mill site,; but soJ far no effort has apparently been made'by the'proprietors in th...

The Worter calls on the Labor Party to depose Mr Glassey as .leader, of the i' push," because he failed the other night in the House to consult his - colleagues before consenting to an adjournment of the debate on the Federa- tion Bill. The following telegram from Mr D. Butterworth, Charters Towers; to Mr Geo. Bardon, Cairns, was received yesterday : " Eighty-six Queens lost, last shot three be- hind seven Thursday." Naturally, the reader will want to know what "that' means."- It has been interpreted lliusly: "Eighty-six is the highest' score so far in the Queen's prize. I lost in the last shot, and am now second, be- ing three behind the first man. The seven hundred yards range will be shot on Thurs- day-" i ' The necessity for a new rifle range has been long apparent, as the present ate, is alto- gether unsuitable for the purpose.'"Now that theie is a talk of forming a branch of the Cairns Rifle .Club at the Mulgrave, would it not be aswell'to make an attempt to get a site for a r...
