IS NAVAL EXPENDITURE UNREMUNERATIVE £20,000,000 IN WAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 February 1910
IS NAVAL EXPENDITURE - UNREMUNERATIVE 1 : £20,000,030 !M WAGES. It is urged by many (says 'Engineer- ing ') that naval expenditure is uiire muuerative, but wo fear that those who accept this dictum tako a some what restricted view of economics. A warship may not be directly remunera tive, in respect that it does not add to 'tho wealth of the nation ; biit the same might bo said' of such a oreak wator, for instance, as that which Sir William Matthews lias only recently completed to prevent the North - Sea from malting iriroacts upon the Tyne. Without this breakwater many of tho riverside industries cotild'~not_ba_ car ried on with continuity, nor could our shipping trade bo pros'ecutcd safely, 3d that, in great measure, such break waters are distinctly, although indi rectly, remunerative J and' so' with cur naval defcnce. Just as the North Sea itself may become turbulent, and, with out proper precautionary provision be ing niado, may rendot' industrial pur suits hazardous, if not unr...

SHORTAGE OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 February 1910
SHORTAGE OF WATER. The protracted dry spell which has been experienced in these quarters ,is now beginning to toll upon the water ?supply available in different parts of the district. Complaints are coming from many quarters that there is a very limited supply m tlio tanks, and m not a few instances tho carting of supplies has been commenced. A copious downpour 1 of rain at this juncture would be 'ex tremely welcome.
DISAPPOINTED EXCURSIONISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 February 1910
DISAPPOINTED EXCUR- ' SIONISTS. The 30 or 40 persons who left their comfortable beds in tho early hours of Saturday morning to join the steamer Huon, bent on visiting Hobart to witness tho opening proceedings of the groat Carnival, were destined to oncounter dis appointment. All wont merrily until tho stosmer reached a spot in the vicinity of Hospital Bay, where the mUd exhibited a fervent fancy for the stout littlo vessel, and clung to her with such violoncy that sho was unable to proceod further. An hour or more later the Excelsior, which was journeying to Hobart with a broken propeller, came slowly into sight, and with the aid of small boats the Huon passengers woro taken aboard her. They eventually rcachod Hobart safely, but as a result of the Excelsior's disablement it was only in time to see the termination of the day's rovelry in tho capital. What these unfortunate excursionists said when they discovered their plight, so far as can be ascertained, has not been re corded. ?
BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION. HOW OUR ELECTIONS WENT IN THE UNREGENERATE DAYS. "I VOTES FOR MR MOST". [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 February 1910
BRIBERY AND CORRUP, TION. HOW OUR ELECTIONS WENT IN THE UNREGENERATE DAYS. 'I VOTES FOR MR MO,ST.-'?. In days not very remote a seat in Parliament was only to be obtained through the influence 'of bribes in every shape and form. Direct bribery of the electorate seems first te have become an organised system under CharleB II., and from that period for many years arguments as. com pared with the more subtle in ducements of £'s. d. were poor political weapons tp wield. ? A candidate when canvassing his constituency was not over particular as to how he pro pounded his views on things in general. This easy and degrad ing state of things for both elec-' tors and candidates recalls one of the famous Dam O'ConnellW ^ppie^ A certain politician had asked a friend to accompany him on a ride to visit and canvass the farmer voters. They drew up their horses at the door of one farmhouse where stood a stout and sturdy yeoman waiting to be wooed. The candidate, with all the genial deference which i...
PAINFUL ACCIDENT AT RANELAGH. CASE-MAKER BADLY INJURED. A NARROW ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 February 1910
- PAINFUL ACCIDENT AT RANELAGH. . j . .urgiri. ? ? .? ? CASE-MAKER BADLY INJURED. HARROW ESCAPE. An accident, which might liave been attended with very serious results, occurred at Ranelagh on Friday last on the- Rookwood Estate. A man named .Brown, recently arrived from the West Coast, was employed by Mr Edward Harris at case-making. The work was comparatively new to him, and he had not been long engaged in it when the drawing-knife he was using slipped and found a resting place in his knee. It inflicted an ugly wound, and Brown, ap parently not being fully cog nisant of thg seriousness of his injury, was content to merely bind it as he would an ordinary cut. For the time-being bleeding ceased, but on Saturday morning upon his attempting to move it broke out again, and the injured man was in considerable danger of bleeding to death. Dr. Anderson was immediately summoned, and proceeding to Ranelagh ho successfully checked the bleeding and dressed the wound. Brown is now progress ing...
FEDERAL ELECTIONS. THE CAMPAIGN IN VICTORIA. A PROPHECY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 February 1910
FEDERAL ELECTIONS. THE CAMPAIGN IN VIC TORIA. A PROPHECY. . (From our Melbourne Correspon dent.) Politically, most of whatever work being done in Victoria is carried on, quietly, it being educational rather than oratori cal. And, it must be confessed, there is 'a marked absence of excitement. That is due mainly to the fact that 'in Victoria most people regard the result of the campaign as a foregone con clusion. It fell to my lot to attend a meeting of the Womens' Liberal Association, on Founda tion Day. I condoled with Miss Grace Watson on the hard work which lay before her. She did not deny that the work would be hard, but she declared that it would be a mere nothing a „n^ p,ar®d with the ' task perf°r£,ie5 at the last elections. The Fusion has made ? an end of the great difficulty, and, owing 'fco , . . -conspicuous failure of the strike leaders in New South ? Wales, Labor is likely to poll few, saZi® its thick and thin supp°r^ef 3* neutrals have been alienated. But whilst the Fu...
SPEECH AT 105. "COME AGAIN NEXT YEAR." [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 February 1910
SPEECH -AT 105. 'GOME AGAIN NEXT YEAR.' A .year' ago Mrs. Rebecca Clarke; then aged 104, presided at the annual New. Year's dinner at the Salvation Army Barracks at Wood Green, N., London, and iii her maiden speech pro mised -to eomo again, next year.' On January 6 tho wonderful old wo man, wno win DO lUti next June, ful filled her promise. She was wearing the silver' grey silk sliaw which she wore on her' wedding day eighty years ago, and is now oiio of her most trea sured possessions. With sight and' hearing almost unimpaired, a clear brain, and a natural gift for repartee, the Wood Green centenarian is as ac tive as many a woman of half her years. Sho complained,, however, last night that 'she couldn't run* about as sho used to.' Sho would like to have helped to servo the dinner. Before making her speech the old dame joined the Salvation Army's 260 poor guests in a substantial dinner of roast beef, vegetables, and plum pud ding — which Mrs. Clarke pronounced 'as -good as if I mad...
MRS LUAED'S MURDERER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 February 1910
MRS LUARD'S MURDERER.' .?AH who- read- those lines will remem ber that Mrs. Luard was found murder ed under most mysterious circumstan ces, and that up to tlie present tlie murderer .has never beeen discovered. Pool- General Luard was driven to his death by cruel accusations and hints. some folk saying outright that he had' murdered his wife, others hinting at it m unmistakablo terms. lho General and his wifo had always lived together as the best of friends, thero was absolutely 110 reason for sup posing him desirous of getbing rid : of Mrs. Luard, but on the contrary every reason for believing that ho was deeply attached to her. Such a cruel accusa tion as that of murdering Mrs. Luard '.vas cno-ugh to liavo sent any innocent man insane, and the General's mental sufferings must have been intense be fora he gave up tho contest with hard fate., .

VICTORIA'S FRUIT SUPPLY BIG HOME CONSUMPMION. STATE INTERFERENCE. OPINIONS OF DEALERS AND EXPERTS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 February 1910
VICTORIA'S FRUIT SUPPLY BIG HOME CONSUMPMiON. I I STATE = INTERFERENCE. OPINIONS OF DEALERS AND | . EXPERTS. (From our 'Melbourne Correspon dent.) A good many Huon readers will be surprised to hear that Victoria has far more acres under apples than lias Tasmania. The figures as given by the different statist's are, Victoria 20,000, Tas mania 16,500. Of course, when it comes to oxport victoria is nowhere. Her grpwers have an enormous market at their own doors, and, it must be remembered a very big part of the Victorian orchard area is infant. Still the figures are startling, and in the course of the next few years this State will enormously increase its export to London. Mr Turner, tlie fruit inspector, with whom I chatted over the matter a day or two ago, remarked that nine years ago Victoria sent away only oOOO cases, in 1908 sho got up to 180,000. Ho thinks that within five years she may be up to the half million. But on the other hand, ho is a great believer in Victoria's home ma...
A FOWL'S AGE. HOW TO TELL IT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 February 1910
A FOWL'S AGE. HOW TO TELL IT. Among the methods used by tho poultryman (says the 'Auckland Star') is examination of the feathor:?, th 3 shanks, the spurs, the head, and the comb. If the spurs of the main bird aro long, lieavy, and coarse, and «««!«« ~C j.1« _ ..i ? i_ _ i* , .mho sv/ttiws ui wie siuuui aro roiign siiicl uneven, the conclusion can bo 'safely ranched that the fowl is rather old. Co( kercls frequently have long spurs, but the spurs will be clear and free of roughness on tho surface, and the shanks will be smooth and clean. Tlio same evidence can ho psed for hens and pullets.. ' * ' Old liens will have longer toe-nails, the ends of which will ba worn or brokon off from scratching. The scales of the shank will be coarse and rou-di, and frequently have dirt beneath bhom, wlnle tho shanks and toes nf nnllr.^ aro usually fresh-looking and smooth.
