Sugar Production in the Wide [?]ay District.[?] [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 14 August 1884
Sugar Production in tlie Wide Vtmy lM«ti-fcrt. -. . AT a recent meeting of the Maryborough Farmers' ami Planters' Association, the Chairman said :-.* I regret that owing to the difficulty of procuring a regular supply of suitable labour, the future of the sugar industry is not so cheering as it was this time last year. Every year during the last four, the supply of Kanaka labour has been more and moro limited and expensive. The seasons, also, during that period, have not been so favourable for agriculture as those that usually prevail in the Wide Bay country. The present crop, owing to the bite drought, is very backward, and unless the rest of the winter continues mild, the output for the next crushing will be far below the usmd average. The average yield per acre for each of the hist four years was as follows : Year 1SS0-1 . 23J cwt. ., lfWl-2 . isl cwt. " 1S82-3 . 12 cwt.

Tba popular outery oii the Récidiviste question is no ex- ception to the rule, and the action of the Police Magistrate at Cooktown, in committing the three Frenchmen from C«!&lt;Mloi»m. to gaol for ^three. montlö, is Sn example of the sacrifice of equity to popular frenzy, and is only countcnanced by the people, because their judgment at the present time, is vitiated by the excitement engendered by discussion of the Récidiviste con- troversy with France. The case is a simple ono, and can be told in a few words. Four French time-expired convicts, leavo New Cale- donia in an open boat for Australia, and after experiencing great hardships at sea, laud on the coast of Queens- land,...
