Public Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 4 September 1884
Public Meeting. A PUBLIC meeting was held by requisition of the ratepayers on Monday night in the Queen's Old Bond, for the purpose of pro- testing against any further delay of the rail- way question, and to urge upon the Govern- ment to place the plans before Parliament without delay. The meeting was one of the largest and most unanimous ever held in Cairns, the attendance proving so great that many were unable to gain admittance to the building. It was also very representative of the whole district, Smithfield and Fresh- water being well represented, together with the Four Mile, Inlet, and Mulgrave. Mr. Swallow conveyed to the meeting, through the chairman, his regret at being unable to attend personally, but wished to record his full sympathy and support in furtherance of the object for which it was summoned. The chair was taken by the Chairman of the Divisional Board, who in opening the proceedings referred to the object of the meeting, and in support of it called atten- tion to...

THE weather darin:; the week has been most enjoyable both by day and night, the glass in the shade not baring registered above 75deg, while the minimum has been -Mkleg. However pleasant this description of weather may be a little rain would do a deal of good. Vegetation is assnming a pleasant hue aud the trees are budding, but there is stïl I an aspect of dryness of soil and withered grass that bids ill for general grazing purposes unless more rain falls. On Saturday evening last a second edition of Thursday's eutertainment was given, ow- ing to several holders of tickets for the first entertainment having being unable to pro- cure seats. The dramatic performance was repeated but the concert programme was changed.

Our Brisbane Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 4 September 1884
Onr Brisbane Letter. (FEOM OCH O WS CXJBRKSFOKDEXT.) J THE great creiit of the past week has been the aunual show of the National Agricultural and Industrial Associa- tion, which was duly opened on Wed- nesday by the Governor in ? persoiu The town has been crowded with thou- sands of country visitors to the show, aud the cab and bus proprietors have reaped a rich harvest. The good order which always prevails in thc dense crowd congregated in-thc exhibition »rounds is particularly remarkable, and «peaks well for the sobriety and re- spectability of our people. The show itself is, if anything, slightly inferior to former "exhibitions, but the drought is probably answerable for tins. In the building there is very much the same display of imported manufactures which there always has been. Outside there is not the same quantity of stock shown .as there was last year, but the quality of what there ¡dis excellent. The show of draught horses was particularly tine; the breed of this cla*s of...

ït\\t Cairn*. Jlost. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, ISSJ. THE issue of Surveyor Amos' report on thc re-survey of the'Port Douglas route, has once more advanced thc rail war question to thc position of thc most important topic of the day, and at the same time left thc Government free to proceed, if so disposed, with the "construction-of the line. Forthe past few months the case has been, in a legal sense, sub j ml ¡ce; precluding all efforts to advance it, and only ex- posing those who would push matters forward, to that ministerial eheeaux-Je frisw. presented in thc stereotyped re- ply of " awaiting professional re- port." Such, has been the position occupied by Cairns ginee the Minister for J.iuiils listened to tho interested assertions of the Port Douglas deputa- tion, and granted a re-survey of Mr. Monk's work on that route, and quietly and confidently has Cairns awaited there-7 suit of that re-survey. The confidence displayed, and the restraint manifested throughout. that tedious delay,...

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER ll, 1884. K ? ? . ~ ,0x several occasions it has been our pleasant duty to report the satisfactory progress being made towards thc estab- lishment of railway communication with Herberton, and aa each advance towards that conaummatioji has been made, to point out that notwithstanding the strenuous opposition of the adro cates of the rival routes, the inherent advantages possessed by thc Cairns line must ultimately triumph, and the final- decision : be giren in favour of " this port.
