NEW SOUTH WALES. STEALING CARGO. WHARF LABORER SENTENCED. TWO YEARS' IMPRISONMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 11 May 1910

NEW SOUTH WALES, STEALING CARGO. WHARF LABORER SEN TENCED. , ? TWO YEARS' IMPRISON MENT. ' At Darlinghurst Sessions, Syd ney, on Wednesday last- a wharf laborer named Oeo. Row was sentenced by Judge Murray on two charges of stealing irom ships. He had pleaded guilty to one of the charges, and was found guii/ty uu wie- uiuor. ' His Honor said this cargo plundering was unfortunately being carried on in a systematic way by a gang of men receiving good pay. Reports had appeared in the newspapers stating that cargo had been disappearing from ships in thousand of pounds worth. This sort of thing only tended to injure honest workers. It might be that there was some thing in prisoner's plea that he had been compelled to join with others in this system of thieving, but it must be remembered that he had only to refuse to have anything to do with it. Row was sentenced to two years on each charge, the sen tences being conburrent.

Inter-State Items. VICTORIA. THE DECLINE OF THE RABBIT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 11 May 1910

Inter-State Items. (From our Exchanges.) ; / VICTORIA. Q ? THE DECLINE OF THE RABBIT. The work of the vermin de struction branch of the Agricul tural Department has been so disastrous to the rabbit pest that rabbits are disappearing from Victoria. The following figures, showing the decline of the rabbit export trade, give a fair idea of the decrease of the pest in the State: — 1906, rabbits exported, .8,500,000 ; 1907, 6,250,000 ; 1908, 4,300,000; 1909, less than 3,000, 000. It is estimated that the vermin destruction board has been destroying from 150,000,000 to 200,000,000 rabbits annually for some years. ~ Babbit exporters state that this enormous destruction and the private suppression of the pest account for the steady de crease in the number of rabbits trapped and exported. A steady :rise in price has accompanied the falling off in supply, and trappers now get from 6d to 7d a pair at - the railway stations. . Scarcity of rabbits and high prices have so interfered with the expo...
