Broughton did not tnmk it well to. write to .Pedro, ana, as lie dicl not want Dolores to speak or her, or to dwell upon ner fate, tney did not talk about ner. Indeed, Dolores was now again too happy to be haunted by the memory of the fleeting glimpse of Pedro's daughter; for Broughton's wonted cheerfulness had been restored to him by Pickering's sharp tonic, and he and Dolores took up tneir life again in the old, and happy way; the ting ting of the guitar again noated out across the square, borne on tlie wings of...
CANE-CUTTERS FOR QUEENSLAND. RECRUITING IN THE HUON. THE MEN'S PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
CANE-GUTTERS FOR QUEENSLAND. RECRUITING IN THE HUON. THE MEN'S PROTECTION. -For some time past agents have been travelling through the Huon recruiting - men for the Queensland cane fields..- The prospect of earning from 10s to £1 a' day, six months permanent work, and a pas. sage to the Northern State at no cost to themselves, have been the attractions held out, and they have -induced a large number of: men in all parts of the district to sign on for this new field of labor. The proposition, as expounded by the agents in question, appears to be an alluring one for the average working man, but several rather contradictory telegrams have been received from Queensland by Mr J. Priest, of Franklin These strongly urge that the men should be advised not to ' sign on,' as there are . plenty of men already available in_ Queensland for the work, provided a proper, wage is offered. v The Tasmanian contingent is being offered 5s 6d per ton, and it is being asserted that a smart man can cut fro...
Fruit Inspection. NEW SOUTH WALES ACTION. PROTEST FROM TASMANIAN MINISTER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
Fruit Inspection. NEW SOUTH WALES - ACTION. PROTEST FROM TASMANIAN MINISTER. It will be remembered that some weeks ago the New South Wales Government announced that certificates forwarded with fruit shipped from Tasmania would not be accepted by them. This has drawn a protest from the Minister of xigtiuuiouie \xion. jx. xiean;, wnicn ne embodied in a communication addressed to the Minister of Agriculture in New South Wales (Mr Perry). In his letter Mr Hean pointed out that the present practice of dual inspection was being severely criticised in the State, as was also his agreeing to such a proposal at the conference of Ministers of Agri culture held in Sydney. He agreed to the proposal in the belief that Tasmanian certificates would be accepted by the other States as being of sufficient value to admit Tasmanian( fruit for distribution, * the importing State to retain the power of further inspection on their wharvos, if deemed necessary. He failed to recog nise the value of the Tasma...
LET JUSTICE BE DONE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
LET JUSTICE BE DONE. Sir, — I would respectfully ask permission to make a few remarks in your columns regarding the trouble recently stirred up in connection with the Cradoc State school. Let me first say that I have' no personal connections with the affair, there being no children of mine at the school, nor am I acquainted with the lady teacher wno nas been attacked. I am writing solely as a lover of jus tice. Now, Sir, the very grave charge which the members of a deputation, who waited on the Por Cygnet Council a day or two ago; were pleased to* make against this teacher, were fully reported in your columns, and I admit, rightly so. But it must be remembered that only one side of the case was given there, and in common fairness to the lady con cerned, her side of the story should be as fully stated. I for one, know nothing of the matter, beyond what was published in your last issue, but I am very anxious, as no do«bt many other citizens are, to hear the teacher's story, before I f...
CRADOC STATE SCHOOL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
CRADOC STATE SCHOOL. | TO THE EDITOR. . SIR, — Will you allow me space in your valuable paper for a few remarks concerning the action of the Education Department with regard to the removal of the teacher of the Cradoc State school. A petition was signed oy a mrge majority oithe parents 'who have children attending school, and was sent to the Minister of Education? .in which a number of serious charges were preferred against the teacher, and asking for' her re moval. .- The Minister simply told us that the teacher was to remain, but gave absolutely no reason for his decision. There has been, I believe, some in fluence at work, used by — shall I say, the opposition .party — some few persons who have no children toattendschool. Some of the child ren are now rowing some three miles across the river in order to attend school at Franklin, as the parents will not send them to the present teacher at Cradoc. Now, Sir, I ask you who should be considered most, those feWwhom I have mentioned, o...

It was furtherreported that Mr Norris said that on one occasion'the teacher was found in the school with her boots off playing with one of the children on the floor.

TWO GIANT LINERS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
TWO GIANT LINERS. Southampton Harbor Board decided ? last month to deepen Southampton channel from thirty-two to thirty-five feet, provided that the White Star Line contributed £2,000 a year for ten years in excess of their ordinary dues; and the ? South- Western Railway Company, who are owners of the docks, also assisted in the financial responsibilities. The dredging is rendered necessary by the fact that the Titanic and Olympic, the 45,000-ton Transatlantic liners now being constructed for the White Star, will make Southampton their home port when com (- pleted. The cost of the projected work is estimated at nearly £100,000.

DANISH BARQUE MISSING. NOT HEARD OF FOR 86 DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
DANISH BARQUE MISSING. ~ NOT HEARD OF FOR 86 DAYS. The whereabouts of the Danish barque Princesse Marie, which called off Sydney Heads in February last and was ordered on to South -Australia, is puzzling the minds of the shipping people in Sydney. When the vessel arrived off this port 6he originally came from Antofagasts (Chili). The captain asked for a chart of Streaky - iBay, her loading place in South Australia. Before, however, the tug returned with the chart the barque had been swept away south by the strong southerly current prevailing at the time. Captain Tadsen, of the German- Australian line, who was acting for the owners in Sydney, is unable to account for the vessel's dis - appearance. She is a very fine vessel, he explained, and one that should make a smart passage along the coast. So far, however, \he has no tidings of the missing - vessel. . The Princessa Marie was in ballast trim, and should in ordinary circum stances have easily made the run to South Australia in the...

Victoria s population is ^1,303,357, an increase of 32,183. New South Wales is more fortunate in having ' 1,621,577 in habitants, but less so-, in its increase of 30,004.

A Miraculous Escape. Coach Passenger's Perilous Experience. A Dangerous Road. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
A Miraculous. . Escape. . ? r ? y' : ' ' Coach Passenger's Peril , ous Experience. A Dangerous Road. Nobody who has passed over that por tion of the road between Franklin and Huonville, recently torn up for repairs, will be surprised to hear that a serious accident was narrowly averted there on Thursday evening. As the night coach approached the quagmire, the driver, who, be it said,' has complained very strongly about the condition in which the road is left, gave warning to his pas sengers to ' hold tight.' Soon after the coach was swaying and jolting violently as it passed over the deep ruts that have formed in this locality. Suddenly the wheels sunk far Into an unprotected hole, and the passengers outside the coach were hurled from their seats. Mr Harold Howard, who occupied the left hand seat on the front box, was thrown over the side, and it was at first thought that he had gone beneath the coach, But fgrtuiiately he managed to grasp the side iron as he fell, and so save himsel...

Franklin Girl's Peril. NARROWLY ESCAPES DROWNING. RESCUED IN EXHAUSTED CONDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
Franklin Girl's Peril. NARROWLY ESCAPES DROWNING. RESCUED IN EXHAUSTED CON v DITION. ?? A girl named . Elsie Crouch, employed as housemaid at the Lady Franklin Hotel, had a narrow escape from drown ing at Franklin on Thursday afternoon. She and a friend named Mrs Bratt were out rowing on the river, and when reach ing the New Road jetty, Miss Crouch reached out to get possession of a small dog. Simultaneously, her weight caused , the boat to shoot away from the jetty, and she was precipitated into the river. A strong current was running, andjshe was promptly carried along in the 'fresh.' A boy who witnessed the occurrence climbed down the side panels with all speed, but in the meantime the girl had been oarried beyond reach. She was struggling violently in the water, and her cries attracted the atten tion of a wood-getter named Edward Careless, who immediately went to her assistance with a punt. He reached her just in the nick of time, and succeeded in grabbing her by the hair as she...
