THE BEST COUNTRY ON EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 April 1910
THE BEST COUNTRY ON EARTH. .This is the best country on earth to live in, in comfort, and not a bad one to die in either. A man does not noed much sense to accomplish' this, either. . He can . always earn money in Aus tralia, and he can always saVe some if he has but the necessary sense. It will be lound, in nine cases out of ten, that non success can be traced to the absence of such sense on the part of the individual concerned. Every man, if he is sufficiently, deter mined about it, may be even better off in the future than tye may be to-day. He will not need any Old-Age Pension. A Policy in the National . Mutnal Life Association will provide for his future, and will also protect his dependents in the meantime WITHOUT ANY ACTUAL I COST TO HIM. ; v They will tell you all ' about it at the Head Office in Maccuarie-street,. Hobart, if you write or eall. .The National Mutual is the most pro gressive and successful Life Office in Australia. ? ?

WHO SHOULD PROSECUTE ? [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 April 1910
WHO SHOULD PROSECUTE ? A new phase of the trouble over the Suevic fruit shipment has been 'brought out by correspond ence between the .Government arid Messrs H. Jones and Co. The firm named urge very strongly tnaD tne iuiiest enquiry should be made into the state ments circulated regarding the condition of the shipment, and if they are shown to be untrue that the person or persons responsible for their promulgation should be proceeded against for libel. We are entirely in accord with this opinion, it being one that we have expressed in these columns on more than one occasion pre viously. The Premier neither admits nor questions the ad visab.leness of this course being taken, but merely expresses the opinion that prosecution is a matter for the exporters, and not for the Government. With this we are not able to agree. The reports circulated are clearly a libel against' one of the staple industries of the State, and not against any par ticular individual. Therefore, it would appear th...
