BRISBANE has not a Millions Club, but it is now accustomed to the use of million in relation to its steadily advancing population. The total is substantially over the quarter-million, and another decade, or fifteen years, should see Brisbanes population over the half-million. With the largest areas of fertile land of any State, Queenslands capital has at its back the firmest agricultural and pastoral support.
