"MORNING POST." "Neither by fear nor by favor, but by Truth alone." Thursday Morning, August 5, 1897. LISSNER ON RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 5 August 1897

"MORNING POST." ¡ "Mitha- by fear nor by favor, but by j " . Truth alone* Thwday Kornlat. AifMt », 1887. :~"LISSNER ON RAILWAY'S. In our telegraphic columns will be found a report of a deputation of ten Members of Parliament who recently waited upon the Minister for Railways to ascertain the intentions of the Government as to the proposed Cairns railway extension from Mareeba to Atherton Included in that députa, tion was Mr I. Lissner, member for Cairns, who placed before the Govern- ment most, weighty reasons why the construction .of this extension should be carried out as soon as possible. So far, so good. Not only do we heartily agree, with all that Mr Lissner said in regard to this, matter, but we ¡would go further and assert that if jver a place in Queensland had stroj^claims to be connected by rail with the coast, it is Atherton. Up Herberton" way «lie people seem to have got hold of the entirely errone- ous idea that Cairns is unfavorable to the proposed extension, but in thi...

On resuming, tho Conference proceeded to deal with the motions, of notice had been previously given. Alderman Black moved the motion standing in his name as follows: " That this Conference having fully considered the provisions of the Local Authorities Bill of JS97, is of. the opinion that the elimination of the financial clauses dealing with thc question of endowment renders the measure of so little im- portance as to bc unworthy of occuppying thc attention of thc Assembly. This Conference therefore resolves to urge upon the members of the Assembly to absolutely reject the measure unless the desired and Financial proposals arc em- bodied in it." In doing so he said that in moving the resolution, it was perhaps not neces- sary to say moro than it was his intention tn bring to fruition the decisions of this and previous Conferences wi...

RESUMPTION OF DEBATE. Tlie discussion on Clause 350 was then resumed. Alderman Smythe: The argument against my motion is that if,-fi special rate has to be struck, no endowment will be received upon it. '' If rou will look at Clause SHS, you will find the folowing :-" All iuoneys received in respect of every separate or special rate levied under' this Act,' md of all moneys received' by tho Local Authority by wav of endowment upon such rates restively, etc." rhU, I jtako to mewTthat »ny special rate that is struck will receive the same endowment nf tm,. general rate, io ¿nat tlie argument, against lily nlCltlbn í.-uls tlirougi!.

Barron Meat Works. THE PAST SEASON'S WORK. A SUCCESSFUL VENTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 5 August 1897

Barron Meat Works. Tl IK PAST SEASON'S WORK. A SUCCESSFUL VENTURE. Thc following résumé of operations at thc Barron Meat Wortes, situated on the hank of thc Barron River at Biboohra, 35 miles along the railway linc from Cairns, will no doubt be read with interest, Mr T. P. Porter is thc Manager of the Works, which are now about completing their first season's active business. Operations for thc season will shut down about the middle of this month (August) and it may be fairly said that, in spite of many initial drawbacks, the new venture has not been altogether unsuccessful. The confusion which evidently pos- sessed, and in many cases still possesses thc public mind, between this company and that misguided speculation which, under thc name of thc " Mareeba Meat Export Co, Ltd.," never even managed lo get out of port, but, as one who has seen its site can testify, was "on thc rocks" before ever it was launched, has militated against the sale of the new Company's shares. Thc shortness...

For continuation of Local miMcf m ¡xige 7., "? ?'Continued from page 2. : _ Although the Rnssiao Government en ? deavoars to suppress with an iron hand all religious dissent from the orthodox belief of the Greek religion, there sre more than ten millions of people in the Empire who will not accept the teachings of that Church. A snooting party from the pearling steamer . Olive (says the " Torres Straits Pilot ",) made a good bagot game carly in the week at the Jardine River swamps. The party mustered three guns and bagged, seventy-three ducks, besides ten brace ot other game. Ducks and other water fowl frequent the swamps just now in great numbers, evidently a result of the scarcity of water inland. No less than seven different varieties of duck were shot by the party from thc "Olive." They also state that the water is very low, and, as conse- quence, the freshwater tish are easily speared. A fine specimen of the Barramundi jardinii, : weighing ten pounds was secured. Mr Michie, age...
