Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 19 June 1884
Our Brisbane Letter. (FKOX OUR OWH CORRIHP0XDÏST. ) THK successful floating of the loan re . ceutly placed on the London market is the cause'of much jubilation in circles favourable to the present Government. It is not tliat every colonist is riot glad to observe that our credit is still good, but those who have followed the Gov- ernment in their belief that by means of -borrowed money our publie works could ba carried on look upon the re- sult of the loan as a proof that they . were correct. It was never thought that the loan would be other than a success, but the Government fixed the minimum at £98, and this, it is con- tended, prevented a price higb.er.than . that obtained being forthcoming. The Government have not been slow to state their -reason for so fixing the minimum. They say that the Bank of England pointed' out the unsettled state of finance in London; and ad- vised them into the course they adopted. .If this be so it cannot be denied that , tho Government - acted . »i"«...

It is expected there will he great excitement over the election, but at this time it would he premature to speak of the chances of the separate applicants for the office.

Having beard so many different opinions expressed con- cerning these harbours, 1 would liku to express my opinion upon them from a mariners point of view, which is founded upon experience. 1 will first speak of .Mourilyan, it being to tho south of the others. 1 heard a lands- man, who I afterwards found was in- terested in Mourilyan, assert that there was sufficient anchorage in the harbour, for Ü.M. fleet to anchor and have swing- ing room. 1 beg most distinctly to say that would be impossible. There might be anchorage for five or six ships and have swinging room, hut more than six vessels could not possibly la}' tacre at the same time.

Correspondence. I We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our correspondents.] (To the Ediúor of the CAIRNS POST.) SIR,-There is a subject which I wish to bring under the notice of the Divisional Hoard through your valuable paper. It is the disgraceful aud dangerous condition of the road from Cairns to the Hap Wah plan- tation. There has been a large sum of money expended on this road some time ago, as well as lately, both of which have been entirely useless. At the time the first road was made, the money expended proved a complete waste, yet in the face of this, no other method was resorted to in making the present track, which is worse to-day than the previous road. I would like to inquire who it was that superintended the construc- tion of the present road, and why it was laid down in a manner which past experiences had proved to be entirely useless, and noth- ing less than a wilful waste of money? Perhaps some of the members of the Divi- sional Board will answer...

Wreck of the Fredrika Wilhelmina. THE BOATS CREW'S ATTACKED BY NATIVES. ONE BOAT'S CREW MISSING. WE have received the following ac- count of the wreck of the Fredrika Wilhelmina from Capt. Routch, who has arrived per the Ariel schooner :- &nbsp; Started from Mackay ou January 2 for the islands, and encountered con- trary winds for three months of the passage. Commenced recruiting upon arrival at Bouganville Island, and while arranging with the natives they acted very treacherously. A large party of them came down to the boats and pretended to recruit four boys, when they suddenly attacked the two crews simultaneously. The Govern- ment agent, Mr. W. Roe, was severely wounded with clubs and spears, and the boat steerer, a native boy, had his head nearly severed, from his body by a tomahawk ; the others of the boat's crew were more or less wounded. The crew of the other boat, under command of the mate, did not fare much better. The mate received an enormous gash in the back fro...

Unless we have intelligent and responsible members on I the Divisional Board, such-'as those I who will not only watch the interests j of their own sub-division, but will also take a broad and liberal view of that j which will improve and benefit the i whole district, we cannot expect any permanent or general, advancement to be made.
