Dur ing the past few weeks proposals have been lindeiv discussion for the provision of a water supply at Port Huon, which would enable steamers calling there to obtain their necessary supplies of fresh water.. The ab sence of this* provision at -present, .is the only reason why some of the overseas vessels call at Hobart, and there is no 'doubt; but that, a con siderable number of them, would make Port' Huon their only , port , of call iri Tasmania if they could get water there.
