FRUIT EXPORT TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 20 April 1910
FRUIT EXPORT TRADE. It is an old and true axiom that ' it is an ill wind that blows nobody any good.' Its application to the cyclone which re cently swept over Fiji and caused great destruction to the banana plantations. One of the results of this disturbance is an interruption of several months in the banana trade with, the mainland States, .and unfortunately for those engaged in this industry it has occurred in the most profitable part of the season. The con sequence is that in the markets of the other States there must be a largely in creased demand for other varieties of j fruit, and thereforo the banana growers j loss is likely to prove the Tasmanian fruitgrowers' gain. It must naturally follow that larger supplies than usual of tho luscious Tasmanian apple will be required, and happily for the orcliardist of this State, at least, the likelihood of this increased demand has occurred at a time when it can ba simply coped with by reason of the prolific crop that will be yielded t...
WAS IT HALLEY'S COMET? Curious Sight at Franklin. Ball of Fire in the Sky. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 20 April 1910
WAS IT H ALLEY'S COMET? Curious Sight at Franklin. Ball of Fire in the Sky. .When leaving duty at a few minutes to 4 on Saturday morning the employees of the ' Huon Times' were attracted by the brilliant illumination of the heavens, caused, as it appeared, by- a flare from behind the hills to the east of Cradoc. Satisfied that it was too early for the appearance of ' Old Sol,' and that the. glare was too bright to bs caused by a bush lire in the hidden valley, they were left in a sea of wonderment. Tliey gazed intently on the curious scpne, engaging the while in wild speculation as to what could be the responsible cause. After waiting several minutes the mystery was solved. A gigantic ; star, magnificent in its brilliancy, peeped , over the hill tops, and gradually rose into full view amid all the grandeur associated with the sunrise; Every- few seconds it would sent forth a glaro which rendered it impossible for the human eye to be concentrated upon.. it. Tho' clear blue sky in whi...

HUON RIVER OBSTRUCTION. Steamer Excelsior Delayed. THE FRUITGROWERS' DANGER, [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 20 April 1910
HUON RIVER OBSl RUCTION. ? L_ ? ? ? ? ? Steamer Excelsior De- I layed. THE FRUITGROWERS' DANCER, The urgent necessity for immediate steps being taken to remove some of the obstructions that are so prevalent in the Huon River has once again been demon strated. On Saturday last the steamer Excelsior , made her usual early start from Franklin, in order to land the fruit shipped by her at .Hobart in good time for the ocean-going steamers, to which it was to be transhipsed. She made good progress until reaching Herriott's Point, but here she was destined to encounter aggravating delay. She became fast upon the bank that has silted up in the channel leading- to the jetty, as a result of which she was detained for some hours. Usually she gets away from this point at_about 8.30, but on -this occasion' for the reason 'stated, it was nearly eleven when she waB'^abfe to resume her pas sage, and even' then this was' only ren dered possible by a kind stroke of Providence. The tide' happened to r...
The Suevic Fruit. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 20 April 1910
The Suevic Fruit, Apparently ? the indefensible delay on the part of the Federal authorities in furnishing certain information concerning the fruit shipped by the Suevic has ex hausted the patience of even the -Tasmanian Government. This is suggested by the latest action taken by the Premier in the matter. . Following a suggestion maPe in the 'Huon Times'' some weeks he has cabled to. the Agent-General, advising him of the false,, reports that ?were pub lished in a certain section of the Australian Press concerning the shipment in question, and in structing him to publish in the English newspapers the actual figures showing the number of cases shipped and the percentage marked unsound. This, the Pre mier considers, is all that is required to prove the falsity of the assertions made. The object of this move is to prevent those buyers or consumers who might have heard of the slanders re ferred to being prejudiced against the Suevic fruit. This, as we have previously pointed out, is a;...
STREAM OF IMMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 20 April 1910
STREAM OF IMMIGRANTS. ' Though the system by which the State assists new settlers to defray the cost of their journey from the United Kingdom to Victoria is somewhat cumbersome (says the ' Age '), much better results' are being obtained from it now than was the case m the past, lor some time after it was first introduced the system remained little more than a dead letter. Practically nobody used it. Towards the end of last year, however, it began to show signs of vitality. .Every month it came more into favor, until now a regu lar stream of assisted immigrants is flowing to Victoria. So far this year just about 300 people have come to the State from the United Kingdom, on the reduced faTes provided by this system, and it is expected that for the rest of the* year the arrivals will . exceed 100 a taonth.

LADIES MATCH.. / ' FRANKLIN V. POMONA. In ideal Tennis weather a match between' two teams of ladies, representing the Franklin and Pomona clubs respectfully, eventuated at Shipwrights' Point on Monday afternoon. As in previous matches, the Franklin ladies proved too strong a com bination for their more youthful opponents, though be it said some of the sets were closely contested being, in two instances,- decided by the narrow margin qf a, few strokes In these sets, the Pomona ladies showed marked improve ment and promise of greater things in the near future. In several of the games good ex hibitions of tennis were given, though certain of the players, and particularly the visitors were somewhat bewildered by the extraordinary gyrations that the balls are wont to perform on a court possessing an uneven sur face. Owing to this fact it not infrequently happened that the court and not the players q.&wjeol the credit for the winning stroke. This precluded the effection em ploymen...
