CROSS-CHANNEL DIRIGIBLE. LARGEST NON-RIGID AIRSHIP IN EXISTENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910

CROSS-CHANNEL DIRIGIBLE. LARGEST NON-RIGID AIR SHIP in Existence.-' The dirigible balloon, 'Clement Bayard II., which has been built in France with a view to its acquisition by the British Go- . vernment, made her first 'ascent : last month. ; They were only ? captive ones, it is true, but thev went to show that the vessel was stable and well under control. The airship is housed. at the;,, little village, of Lamotte.rBreuiVv near'Cbmplegne; and in'the e^rfy morning sun tho brightcanary colored gasbag made a striking picture as the airship \Vas brought forth to undergo her preliminary trials. One potent fact which made M. : Cleement clioosei Lam'ojtte-Breuil for the building of his ..mammoth is that the village possesses ones? of the few chemical works in France where pure hydrogen is generated in large quantities, and as hydrogen is the life-blood of . the balloon, arid the cost of ' bottling ' and -transport would generally treble its original cost, it is well worth the constructor...

MAD BULL CHARGES BLUEJACKETS. SAILOR CLINGS TO THE TAIL OF THE STARTLED ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910

MAD BULL CHARGES BLUEJACKETS. -/ SAILOR CLINGS TO THE TAIL OF THE STARTLED ANIMAL. Bluejackets, at the Whale Island gun nery-establishment at Portsmouth , had an exciting time recently (says ' Lloyd's Weekly') with a bull which had escaped from a local slaughterhouse. After a lively career through tho pub lic streets the animal headed ..for the. island footbridge, over which he galloped. A guard tentatively barred his way, but he charged them full tilt, and the guard, thinking discretion the better part of valor, fled incontinently ^o shelter. The bull then doubled across the parade ground, where a i arty of bluejackets were at drill, and went for them, tail in air. The disciplined gunnery men did riot stop to question the bull's right to bo there, but, without waiting for orders, they broke rank and ran- helt'er-3kelter. One bluejacket, however, for mere devilment, sidled up behind the beast, and, gripping the bull's tail, twisted it. Off went the bull with the bluejacket Hanging o...

Fiji Banana Trade SOME BIG FIGURES. PROPOSED INCREASE IN DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910

Fiji Banana Trade SOME BIG FIGURES. PROPOSED INCREASE IN DUTY. . . By way of a counter demonstration to certain proposals to increase the duty on Fiji bananas, a number of Melbourne and; ; Sydney banana merchants, headed by Mr ' T. Jessep, of Sydney, ?' waited on the Minister of Customs (Mr Tudor) a day or two ago. They protested against any proposal to raise the duty, arid in justifica tion for their attitude ' they urged that the . banana was ' a poor man's food that there was room on the market for both Fijian and Queensland bananas, that the latter already had quite enough tariff preference ; and that the imposts' on the former in the way of freight, wharfage fees and duty were quiteheavy enough to sustain. In order to illustrate the preference shown in Sydney for the ? Fijian fruit, for which it was claimed that it was more nutritious and palatable than the Queensland article, Mr Jessep stated that in 1909 548,400 bunches of Fijian bananas, valued at £83,256, and, .. . bearing ...

DREADNOUGHTS. LARGEST BATTLESHIP TAKES THE WATER. Another Dreadnought battleship for the British Navy, the Colossus— which, with the: Invincible battleship cruisers, makes thirteen now afloat — was launched last month- from Scott's ' great yard . at Greenock on the Clyde. ?' - '? An immense crowd lined the banks and quay to watch the mighty vessel leave stocks, for every shipyard in. the district had declared holiday. . Lady Colebrooke, wife of a Lordin Waiting to the late King, named the warship with all due ceremony in the presence of some 500 favoured guests, and, just after 11 o'clock, she pressed an electric button with almost magical re sults. The great hulk took sudden life, gave one great lurch,, and glided majes . ticallydown the ways. Cheers rent' the air as with a mighty splash the largest battleship yet launched in this country struck the water and a giant wave set all the craft on the waters dancing in the sunlight. A minute later, the massive hull, so .aptly christened...

Cradoc School Trouble. MINISTER OF EDUCATION'S VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910

Cracloc School Trouble. MINISTER OF EDUCA TION'S VIEW. | In an interview on Thursday, the Minister of Education (Hon. A. E Solomon) said that at present he had no , intention of taking any further action in 'regard to the teacher at the Cradoc school. ' When complaints against the lady in question were made by certain of the paresnts attending the school,' said the Minister, a de partmental enquiry, was held, and the matter thoroughly investigated. I am now satisfied that the children at the present, time are boing properly taught arid cared for, and can therefore see no reason to justify the removal of the teacher as some persons desire. As I have already stated, the whole thing resolves itself into the question whether , the. Department or the parents are going to' rule in such matters. As to the re quest that the Inspector's report upon the . school should be published, that could not, of course, be acceded to. None of the reports of Inspectors are ever published, for what I cons...

The Malwa Fruit. Its Landed Condition. "Badly Spotted and Overripe. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910

The Malwa Fruit. its Landed Condition. ' Badly Spotted and Over ripe. The unsatisfactory condition of the shipment of fruit sent by the R.M.S Malwa calls for comment. The Victorian .Agent-General has furnished a report on the fruit, which was unloaded on the 9th and 13th April. The shipment consisted of 8534 cases from Melbourne, 406 from Sydney, 16,901 from Tasmania, 6750 from Adelaide, and 528 from Fremantle, and was carried in a mean temperature of,40 deg. The Agent-General states that the fruit was packed in a dry, clean condi tion, but some boxes were broken, a few cases of apples were damaged and badly spotted, and the' pears were damaged, soft, and Over-ripe. Mr J. G. Turner, chief inspector of the fruit divisiou in Victoria, considers that growers have not yet realised that in order to ensure good carriage -of pears the fruit should be cooled down as soon as packed. Mr Turner remarks further that 40 deg. is tooiigh a temperature for poars, which should be carried at bet ween...

Sensational Bolt. BOY'S MIRACULOUS ESCAPE. HORSE TURNS A SOMERSAULT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910

Sensational Bolt. BOY'S MIRACULOUS ESCAPE. HORSE TURNS A SOMERSAULT. A . bolt of a rather sensational charac ter occurred at Franklin on Wednesday afternoon. A horse attached to a light trap while being driven down the New Road by a boy named Alfred Cupit be came frightened, and careered off madly towards the township. .When reaching Howard's corner it was travelling at. a high speed. The animal made an unsuc cessful attempt to negotiate the. turn and dashed into the fence immediately opposite Mr H. Howard's store. Simultaneous with the impact the boy, who was sitting in the cart, was thrown violently over the horse's head, landing on. his face on the opposite side of the fence. The horse and trap followed him, the former turning a complete somersault in the aiF, landing with its head towards the body of the cart, though still between the^Sliafts. The whole 'turn out' fell within a few feet of the prostrate youth. When picked up the boy was feeding profusely from wounds on his head ...

Huon Telephone Service, [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910

Huon Telephone Service, The congestion which occurs in the traffic over the telephone lines between Hobart and Huon stations is, it appears, still re ceiving the attention of the Postal Department. In com pliance with the instruction of the Deputy Postmaster reports have been furnished upon the delays to which subscribers are subjected, and it is stated therein that during the past week or two in no case has any person de siring to use the trunk line been kept waiting longer thai! 20 minutes, 'excepting when the lines have been down.' Unless the lines were in the condition just stated during the whole of the period covered by the reports, this assertion is certainly hard to understand. Several instances are known to us where the delay in getting connection with the capital ~ far exceeded the time specified, but whether this was due to a temporary interruption in the line or the inadequacy of the service, can only be known to the postal officials. Be the cause what it may such delays...
