THUBSDAT,- MAY 29, ISSI. School of Arts. WE have frequently discussed in these columns the necessity for establishing a School of Arts, hilt unfortunately the question has not met with that con- sideration which so important a subject demands. There hare been several attempts on thp parj; pf a few pf ßup leading meii in the town, but from want of support from the general public their efforts - to establish_a School of Arts have signally failed. It is not difficult to look for a solution- While the .working classes, for whose benefit the institution would principally serve, dis- play such apathy it is not to be ex- pected a sueecss can he attained. Cairns is now justly considered as one of the most rising towns of ..North Queens- land, and as, such there should bc no difficulty, if proper spirit animate the citizens, to raise sufficient funds by suhseription, which v'ould he supple- mented, by the Government with like amount: A reserve is already made in a prominent position of the t...

Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 29 May 1884

Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) POLITICALLY I have just the same story to tell you as I told last week. Everything seems to have gone flat, and there is no profit to be gathered. Par- liament will meet on the 8th July, or   perhaps a week later; at least, so the   Premier informs the Acting-Leader of the Opposition. By that time we ex- pect to see Sir Thomas McIwraith back amongst us to take up the leadership of the Opposition, and make things gener- ally very lively for the Ministry. Gar- rick's successor as Postmaster-General has not yet been selected. I fancy Mein will be the man, if he can get the ap- proval of his partners to his accepting office. On Saturday last the Ministers had a run down the bay in the old Governmnent steamer Kate. It is said that during the trip the main principals of the new Land Bill were decided, and that the measure will be ready to be laid before the House early in next session.
