The Suevic Fruit. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 30 April 1910
The Suevic Fruit. THE contention that the Govern ment should institute an action for libel against the person who was responsible, for the promul gation of certain misstatements concernink the condition of the fruit shipped to England by the Suevic last month, does not find favor with the Premier. It will be seen from an article published in another column that he is of the opinion that the Government could not successfully maintain an action, and holds that if pro ceedings are to be taken at all, the exporters, and not the State authorities, are the proper per sons to institute them. Sir Elliott Lewis has given this reply after very carefully considering the position, and doubtless it will be accepted as a legally sound one. But even though this be so, it should not deter very definite action being taken to vindicate the good name of our fruit in dustry. —The-reputation of this vitally important and growing industry has been unjustifiably maligned, an offence that is far too grave ...

POET CYGNET. NEWS OF THE WEEK. . . .'. From our own correspondent). A Vocal and Dramatic Recital was given by Mrs. Albert Bingham's concert party on Wednesday night, at Quigley's hall. There was a good attendance and the concert was an unqualified success. The audieece marked their appreciation of the programme submitted by frequent and vociferous applause, several of the performers., notably Mrs Binghams being enthusiastically encored. Skating is all the rage here at present, it having completely displaced dancing for the time being. The trouble however has been an insufficiency of floor space in the local halls, but to overcome this difficulty Mr A. P. Lucas has decided to enlarge his hall, giving it both increased width an4,length. When this improve ment is completed devotees of roller skating will be able to indulge in the healthful pastime fu greater comfort than ha-3 been possible hitherto. Miss Brighta Taylor is at present mv.'iy on a brief holiday. The friends of Mr A. J. Wa...

Coles, and driven by a young lady named Miss Finn? became frightened, and, without warn ing, careered wildly down Mainstreet When reaching a corner immediately past the Commercial Hotel the runaway steed swerved suddenly into the by way.

The cart cams into violent contact with the fence, and brought the pony to a halt. When 'the collision occurred the young lady was thrown over the fence, but for tunately escaped with a slight abrasion of the knee, though she was considerably affected- by shock.

The Suevic Fruit. — ? — ♦ ? The Proposed Libel Action Attitude of the Government. The Premier (Sir Elliott Lewis) has decided that it would be futile for the Government to in stitute an action for libel against the individual or individvals who were responsible for the promul gation of the libelous assertions circulated recently concerning the fruit shipped from Tasmania by the steamer Suevic. The statements .that form the subject of complaint were cabled from Hobart to certain mainland newspapers, and were published therein. Among other things, it was stated in the report that the fruit was 'absolutely rotten, badly infected with black spot ari'd bitter pit, and a disgrace to shippers.' Those who forwarded fruit in the vessel were not un naturally incensed at the circu lation of such, a, slander, knowing that there was absolutely nothing to warrant the use of such language. Further proof of its inaccuracy is given oy tne . re sults of the sale of the Suevic fruit, for, although no ...
