A Cooktown Shark Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 11 March 1922

ACooktown Shark Story. The Coogee shark story was brought to light by means of contributors to the Press a crop of shark stories, and I> (writes C. J* J.) am tempt ed to add my quota to the general Information. The Incident came under my own observation and was recorded in my diary at the time. In the early days of Cooktown a couple of old "whalers" had estab lished a sort of boiling-down busi ness, at the foot of Grassy Hill, in a bight from which road material had been excavated, and in 1878 made a good return in catching sharks and boiling the livers for oil. They also treated the dugong brought from outside the same way.

The climate was the same. There was the same bustle, activity and energy among the people. The same species of flowers and trees grew in the same profusion. The acacia, tor Instance, was as pre valent and as adored in America as In Australia. But a tree more adored by the Americans was the gum tree, which they termed the eucalypt.

Tbe decision will probably arouse con siderable criticism. But it Ipoke a bigger drop on paper, than it will possibly work out in practice. Easter cuts well into next month. Not quite three weeks are avail able for sales. Therefore, though supplies will be about 80,000 bales less than during the last two months, the trade will be well occupied is handling the market supply arranged. The May and June allocations are only tentative. They may be increased later on.
