' - The steamer Port Chalmers, of the Anglo-Australian Steam Navigation 1 Company's line, which arrived at Adelaide from London on Wednesday last, had a ' ' sensational experience during the voyage.

NEW RIVER STEAMER. For Huon-Hobart Service. A Handsome Vessel. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 25 May 1910

..STEAMER. '- ?? — ? '- ? O ? For Huon-Hobart Service. A Handsome Vessel. The enterprise of the Huon Channel and Peninsula Steamship Company . Limited in catering for the tourist and - passenger traffic generally has been well ' evidenced in previous years (says a morning contemporary), but the step taken recently in ordering another addi tion to their fleet marks a distinctly for ward movement, and one that calls for the warmest commendation. The new' boat, which will be the largest, and doubtless the speediest, on the river; has been built by that well-known firm, Messrs Purdan and Featherstone, Bat tery Point, whose name is a guarantee of faithful workmanship. The keel was laid towards the end cf last year, and though the time for delivery was not till July, the vessel has been ready for launching some days, and the ceremony has been delayed for some of the machinery, which only arrived yester day by the R.M.S. Ruahine. The new' boat was designed by Mr T. Purdon (the senior partn...

FOOTBALL. Franklin Association. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 25 May 1910

FOOTBALL. Franklin Association. The second match of the season was played on Watson's Recrea tion Ground on Saturday after noon under ideal conditions. The light rains which had -fallen during the morning had just softened the ground sufficiently, whilfi thfi woather which pre vailed throughout the afternoon was distinctly favorable, at least, from the players' standpoint. At one period during the game a light shower fell, but it was of short duration, and made no material difference to the play. The competing teams were the Rovers, who went down before Union on the Drevious Saturday, and United, who made their' first appearance on the field. Rovers on this occasion succeeded in mustering a full team, and United also was fully represented. The result was that a keenly con tested match, full of interest from the spectacular standpoint, resulted,- as the scores indicate. At no period of the game did the disparity between the respective totals exceed 5 points, with the inevitable resul...

English Fruit Market. The Australian Shipments. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 25 May 1910

English Fruit Market. » ' ? — ' *+ — ! — The Australian Shipments. In reviewing^hd English Fruit Market, the London correspondent of the -Sydney 'Daily Telegraph' writes :—.' The AuSt tralian apple season has not started too' well, chiefly on account of the unsatis factory quality of the fruit. The first shipment, in the Osterley, carried well, but there were many immature apples, and bitter pit was prevalent to a serious degr,ea in both Australian and Taamanian parcels. The eaine fault was noticeable ae-ain in the apiJies ' which arrived this week in the Malwa, and these had thp additional disadvantage of being landed in poor condition. The softer sorts were all more o? less wasty, and Covent Gar den opinion waa almost unanimous that they had been overheated. The Malwa brought 206 cases of apples from Npw South Wales, chiefly from the Bathurst' Experimental Farm, These arrived in fairly good condition, and made prices about equal to those from Victoria and South Australia. The Jona...

THE PLAY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 25 May 1910

THE PLAY. With the ball in.mo'tion Somers was the. .first to show out. ' He made a dash. into the opposing side's citadel, but was inter cepted by M. Hay.. For the moment tjhe attack was repelled, but L. Hay, by clever work;, got possession of the ball and for-' warded, Somers, by neat'play,; baffled two of his opponents and notched hrst point, some vigor ous play . ensued on the bottom wing, which culminated in H. Hay taking a long snapshot for goal, but he had the misfortune to hit the post. On th,e kick in the oval was rushed fast to the opposite end, but T. Casey missed a simple njark within shooting distance, and a gooc| scoring opr portunity was lost thereby. Again the blue and whites made a vigorous onslaught upon United's goal,, but they were held at bay by P. Wicks, whose work in defence was sound and attractive. The Rovers sustained their attack for the greater part of the quarter, but, chiefly owing to the reason above stated, they failed to once find the . opening. Only ...

THE HUONBAIL .. WAY.' \ -., — — — m The Proposed Flying Survey. HOBART, Tuesday A meeting of the Southern Tasmanian Railway League was held in the Mayor' s Room, iTown Hall, yesterday afternoon. Mr G. P. Fitzgerald presided over a fair attendance of members. ^ . The Secretary (Mr Crooke) referred to the fact tfiat tho policy recently pro pounded by the Premier contained no reference to railwav matters. It was probable that the line to the abattoirs would bo constructed, and also a new railway station for Hobart. These were purely administrative matters, but no mention was made of the work which the League was advocating, such as a rail way to the mineral fields of the West. Coast or the horticultural grounds of the Huon, which would lead to the develop ment of Southern Tasmania. Regarding tho survey to the Huon, a surveyor had been temporarily engaged to do the most difficult work. Regarding the collection, he found that local branches of foreign banks had given them no assistance, ...

LOVETT V. HASTINGS. WIN FOR THE LOCALS. (From Our Own Correspondent.) LOVETT; Monday. The season was opened at Lovett on Saturday by. a match between Lovett and Hastings, played in Mr Robert Harvey's paddock. The weather was dull and chilly, but with the excep tion of a light shower that fell at half-time, rain held off. The visi tors were conveyed to Lovett by the steamer Ronnie, a fair coterie of supporters accompany ing them. A good deal of interest was manifested in the fixture, and an interesting game resulted in the home representatives winning by a good margin, the final scores being': — Lovett, 11 goals 4 behinds ; Hastings, 3 goals 5 behinds. The play, though not lacking determination and vigor, was characterised by a commendable friendly spirit throughout, there -being a notice able absence o~f any unnecessary roughness. \ - Those who showed attractive form among the local players were C. Moles, A. Kildea, and C. Burton, this trio being respon sible for the greatest share ...

SHIPMENT OF FRUIT. UNCERTIFICATED FRUIT ON SYDNEY MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 25 May 1910

'' SHIPMENT OF V; .??.. ' FRUIT. ::; UNCERTIFICATED FRUIT ON: SYDNEY MARKET. There is at presont on view at' ? the office of the Secretary of the Agricultural Dopartment (says a Hobart Contem porary), two samples of fruit which were taken from consignments recently for warded to the wharves for shipment to Sydney. One of the samples consist's of a half-case of pears, whilst the other is a basket of poars and apples taken from other consignments. The half-case is in a aisgraceiuL condition, as an tne fruit is mildewed, and many of tho pears are clinging together in masses of rottenness. The sample was taken from a consignment of 166 cases sent down for shipment last week by the Paloona, but seeing their condition, the inspector, Mr Grueber, refused to grant a certificate for them. The apple3 in the other sample were labelled ' French Crabs, large and clean.' The1 least that can bo said about the apples is that those that are large are not cloan, and those that are clean are not large...

The committee reported that, as far as their inquiries wont, they were convinced that the freights had been reduced to the same figure, namely, 7J^d per case.' This was thought to be an excessive charge, and it was rosolved to approach the companies and see if the charge could not be reduced to Gd. per case. ? .
