The Barron Bridge in Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 28 February 1884

The Barron Bridge in Parliament. Mr. Hamilton read a telegram to the Legis- lative Assembly on the 20th instant, stating that the Barron Bridge had been swept away by the flood, thus completely stopping all traffic between Cairns and Herberton, and asked the Government to take immediate steps to remedy the disaster. The Premier in reply premised to obtain further information respecting the disaster, and to take the necessary steps to remedy it. Mr. Hamilton mentioned the matter the following day, when Mr. Griffith denied having made any promise, notwithstanding that the Harvard report proved he did. He further stated that he had received no in- formation on the subject, and that at any rate it would be impossible to build bridges until the flood had subsided, and urged that the proper course was to lay the matter before the Minister for Works.

The Recent Gales. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 28 February 1884

The Recent Gales The severe weather experienced in Cairns last week appears to have visited Cooktown with even greater severity, and to have been the cause of much damage to property and suffering its residents. The Cooktown Courage? describes the scenes presented in Cook- town on Thursday as " a sight which it has not been the lot of any white man to have seen before." Footpaths were washed away, the torrents of   water overwhelming, and carrying cul-   verts and everything else before it ; the   telegraph line was lying all over the street near Armbrust's ; the verandah to the Queensland Hotel was tossed on   to the roof of the hotel ; and every   house more or less appeared as if it had been flooded. Of the damage done to the shipping in the harbour the same journal says :-   At about 1 a.m. on Thursday the   force of the current, due to the fresh in the river, caused the Corea, to part her...

It commenced raining steadily last night, and the rain is still continuing. There is every appearance of the wet season setting in, but there will be most disastrous consequences if such is not the case. The woman lost from Richmond has not yet been found, and it is supposed she is dead. WINTON. Feb. 23. No rain has yet fallen in the dis- trict.
