TIIUBSDAY, APRIL lp, ¡m. The Town Wanes, THE prospect of carly railway com- munication with thc interior and the knowledge of the Taut resources it will open up, combined with the increased \ shipping facilities which will be de mandpd for th« purpose of exporting the producta bf the new industries, should be sufficient reason for directing serious attention to thc disposal of the wharf sites on tho Inlet and their acquisition by private ? individuals. During the past month three ot these eligible sites have been disposed of by the Government, and the rapidly in- creasing Talue of them is manifested by the great advance in the price paid for tfje jasj; over those sold only a few days previous. The revenue derived from ¿he sale of tbcsp leases goes into the general exchequer of thc colony, so that the town itself derives no benefit from ita favourite situation, but only contributes towards fch/s general revenue community: "Tho nnfajr>ncs*m*' ttns ar- rangement has been recognised ...

Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT[?]) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 10 April 1884

Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT ) CAIRNS has come in for A fair share of attention this week in Brisbane. On Friday last the Port Douglas deputa- tion waited on. Mr. Miles to urge the claims of that place to the Herberton railway, but they received very little encouragement, and the surveyors' re- ports published on Saturday afternoon gave the real idea as to where the line would go to on the coast. The deci- sion was as you have been advised far in favour of Cairns as the port ter- minus, and Mourilyan Harbour was not for a moment in it. The Port Douglas deputation by a course of action which does not do them much credit en- deavoured to show that the surveyor on the Cairns route, Mr. Monk, was     biassed on account of owning land at your township, and they also argued that as the surveyor engaged on the Port Douglas route was very voung and very inexperienced it was only fair that they should be granted a second survey. This the Minister...

The Cooktown-Maj tow u Railway. TURNING THE ÏIRST SOD. (Abridged from the COOKTOWN COURIER.) THE festivities in connection with tho turn- ing of the first sod of thc Cooktown-Maytown Kailway may be said to have commenced with the arrival of the Warrego about 7 p.m. on the 2nd instant, conveying the numerous visitors from the South which the open- hearted hospitality of th* Mayor and Alder- men had drawn to Cooktown to participate in the rejoicings. Unfortunately the tide would not admit of the Warrego steaming np ti the wharf, so the band -which was in at- tendance there had to embark and serenade the visitors from the deck of the Black Prince, which went out to the Warrego. Later on thu Warrego attempted to reach the wharf but grounded on a mud-bank, where she re-, niaiued fast, necessitating the-binding of her" passengers by means of the boats which was accomplished on the following morning. Tiie 3rd of April broke clear and fine, and thc ttivn presented a gay holiday appearance. ...
