$% &lt;Tairu> ¿lost. TUUESDAY, JULY 24, ISSU. Ax tbo preaent time there ia much di»- I cushion and .1 great diversity ot opinion respecting the clearing of the scrub trees from the streets of Cairns. Bi- sóme it is advocated that the shade afforded is much to be desired, and by othcrs that in the cauie of cleanliness and health the clearing of trees should be at once proceeded with. That there is much to be said on both sides cannot be denied, but for our own part we would much prefer cultivated shrubs and true shade trees to the wild growth of the bush foliage that now abounds in our streets, and which only serves to create insect life and vermin as well as a threatened danger in the shape of typhoid fever, produced by decaying leaves falling on the roofs of dwellings and so passing into the water used for drinking purposes, and this being the only means of water supply in Cairns at the present time demands the most serious consideration. The planting and cultivation of ...

Our Brisbane Letter. iFKOJl OUB OWÎt COBRSSFONDEST.) Pakliamest opened on Tuesday last with customary formality. The Gov- ernor's opening speech, which is sup- posed to review the principal events of the recess and give a brief outline of future policy, you ko doubt have to hand, so there is no need for me in this letter to occupy your space in re- peating it at length. One of the most important points brought out was that the Government are of opinion that " at present " it is desirable that the Agent-General should be a member of the Cabinet, and that Mr. Garrick, though in England, continues to be one of the Ministry. . It is also stated that a Bill will be introduced during the session to provide for an additional portfolio, and it is generally supposed that the office will be that of Minister for Public Instruction. The increase of work in connection with public busi- ness renders the increase of salaried Minister» very necessary,- and the crea- tion of-the office will -bo gene...
The New Land Bill. (Brisbane COURIER July 11th.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 24 July 1884
The New Land BUI. (Brisbane Couriek July llth.) Thk Land Bill was introduced by the Gov- ernment yesterday, and it may be of interest if we describe in a general way what we un- derstand to be the tenor of its provisions. It repeals, in the first place, all the laws in existence for the alienation of Crown lands, as well as those applying to'leases in the settled districts. The Pastoral Leases Act of 1809 is to remain in force, except in such, parts of the unsettled districts as are in- cluded in an area scheduled ; but the 5-lth section, which creates what has been known as the pre-emptive right, is repealed. Pro- vision is made for the substitution of the pre- sent Act for that of 1SC9, in parts of the colony not included in the schedule, by pro- clamation of the Governor-in-Cuuncil or on application by the squatters holding runs in it. Clauses are, of course, introduced guard- ing nil existäng rights and obligations, and no lessee is compelled to surrender his pre- sent lease unl...
