NEW ZEALAND. WHAT IS A STRIKE? NEW ZEALAND COURT DECISION. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910
NEW ZEALAND. WHAT IS A STRIKE ? NEW ZEALAND COURT DECISION. A week ago, owing to. a dispute about the use of hooks in, unload- ing cargo from the Union Com pany's steamer ? Wanaka, the wharf laborers employed on the work left the vessel in a ' body. They were -prosecuted as being parties to a strike, and the case was referred to the Arbitration Court for a ruling. The Court now holds that as it has not been shown that the men acted in pur suance of a common agreement to compel the company to allow the use of hooks, their discontinuance of work could not be ca,lled a: strike. ?
Drying Factories. Cessation of Operations. AN OVERSTOCKED MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910
Drying Factories. Cessation of Operations. AN OVERSTOCKED MARKET, To-day several of the- drying factories in different parts of the Huon will be closed down. The reason given , for thjs step is that the market is already over stocked with evaporated fruit, with the result that the further manufacture of this product is pretty 'certain to result in loss. The factory owners are not in clined to be-left with a large surplus on their hands, as some were last season, so they have decided to cea3e operations This early exhaustion of the demand for dried fruit is due to a variety of reasons. The full quantity -that can be profitably plaoed in the Aus tralian market is put' down at 16,000 boxes. This year .early requirements were met by the surplus of about 1000 cases loft over from last season, while the competition the Tasmaniari manufacturer met on the mainland. ha3 been greater than in 'previous years,- Victoria and South Australia now being considerable rivals in the trade. This early ...
"A NATIONAL DANGER." OBSERVATIONS ON THE FEEDING OF YOUNG CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910
1 45 A- NATIONAL DANGER.' OBSERVATIONS ON THE FEEDING OF YOUNG CHIL DREN. . ????? Some striking observations on the feeding of young children were . made' by the Kingston Coroner recently (says '' Lloyd's Weekly') at an inquest on the bodv of the eleven-montlis-old son of Mrs Humphrey. The mother said she nurse d^tlie infant for one ? month, and after that party nursed and partly; fed him on cows' milk. She took him tp a hospital, as he was suffering from rickets, but he died as she was bathing him. Dr. Davies said the child died in convulsions, due to cardiac failure and coma. ' And if the mother had nursed the child properly for six months, would it have had a better chance ?' queried the' Coroner. ' Certainly a better chance of escaping the rickets ' was the reply.- ? The Coroner said the case was 'an illustration of very many where children were allowed to grow up stinted and inefficient, and they had one instance of the extent of this in connection with the South African war.

Gordon Separa tion Movement. Deputation to the 'Go vernment. ^ ? AMALGAMATION WITH KIMC BOROUCH RECOMMENDED. Some time ago a1 petition was pre sented to- the Government, praying that the. Gordon Ward sliould be separated from the Port Cygnet Municipality, and formfid int.o a sonaratfl municipality. On Thursday a deputation of residents of the Channel, headed by Cr. M'Dowall, waited upon the Premier (Sir Elliott Lewis) and the Minister of Lands (Hon. A. Hean), to adduce reasons showing why the request embodied in the petition should be acceded to. , Councillor A. M'Dowall (Middleton) said that tho unanimous opinion of residents of- the Channel was thatr their- district , should bo separated from the Port Cygnet Municipality. It had been said that the Channel was too small to be made a distinct municipality, but that assertion could easily be con tradicted,. as it was an important and rapidly growing one. The separation was urged because the interests of the Channel and Port Cygnat pe...
NEW SOUTH WALES, FEDERAL AND STATE FINANCE. REMARKS BY MR WADE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910
NEW SOUTH WALES. FEDERAL AND STATE FINANCE. REMARKS BY MR WADE. ' Speaking at a shire delegates' harbor picnic on Monday, the Premier said he had some appre hension with regard to the ques tion of future revenue. Without . discussion controversial politics, there did seem imminent a state * of affairs under which the Com monwealth Parliament might ' think fit to carry out a promise of imposing taxation upon land values so heavy as to induce the subdivision of the larger areas. - £)ne result of a policy of that kind, if put into effect, would be naturally to ''depreciate land values as a whole throughout the State, and as the shires had to rely upoii local revenue from land, if the value was decreased, the revenue must become less, and thev would find themselves with shortened resources. In such: circumstances they would naturally feel impelled to turn to the Government for assistance. But the State Government would at the same time find itself suffering from the effect of having no ...

On the night of my marriage I was under six teen years of age. We were walking along Pitt-street about 7.30 when he suddenly said, ' I have made arrangements for us to get married this evening.'

DENSE FOG IN SYDNEY. SHIPPING ENDANGERED. TRAINS DELAYED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910
DENSE FOG IN SYDNEY. SHIPPING ENDANGERED. TRAINS DELAYED. Sydney was wrapped in a dense fog all Monday morning. The fog bank first settled on the' Parramatta River, and under the influence of a light westerly draught swept down the harbor and enveloped everything be tween the Quay and Bradley's Head. Incoming ships were comr/elled to anchor for safety, and the ferry boats had to ' feel their way' to the wharves, Parra matta* River steamers suffered some delay, and the traffic down the harbor had to be manoeuvred with caution. Stoppages were, of course, frequent, as a pre caution against collision. The steamer Alden, a large cargo boat. from San Francisco, ran into 'the fog off Dawes Point, and the pilot anchored the vessel until the fog lifted. ' * Passengers by the Manly steamer Burra Bra had an excit ing exporience in the fog. On the run from Manly to the Quay the Burra Bra met the fog after rounding Bradley's Head, and the engines were eased to ' dead slow.' The ferry boat cleare...

A meeting of the Cen tral Exective was then held, and Mr Bowman was elected Presi dent.
"TOO MUCH POMPOSITY." [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910
? TOO MUCH POMPOSITY.' ; Dr. Barlow, Anglican Bishop, of GouK burn (N-.S.W.), addressing a large gather ing at Wagga recently, after referring to the widespread feeling of: love evinced by all nationalities for King Edward, said it proved that one true, good' man, living up to the highest ideals, could bring all moil together ? in the bondsj of 'sympathy and peace. Contrasting King ' Edward with other Englishmen, Dr Barlow said there was too much bombast, too much boast ing, too ? much pomposity, too much Jingoism in the utterances of Britishers everywhere ; too much of the feeling that we were the kings and rulers of the world, but by the present great consti tutional crisis God has taught us a lesson, and we realised our weakness.

Value of Humus. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910
- — — ? ? ? . ? Value of Humus. WE hear so much nowadays of the advantages to be derived, from the proper use of commer cial fertilisers that some of us are almost inclined to look upon farm-yard manure and composts as getting old-fashioned and out ol date. There could not, .how- ever. be a greater mistake, and if we neglected the application of natural manure or other form of organic matter for any*length of time the diminished crops would soon bring home to us that we -were trying to grow plants by an artificial means which Nature revolted against. A great part of the value of farm-yard manure consists in the supply of humus —organic matter— which it fur nishes to the. soil apart from its actual fertilising constituents. This organic matter not only increases the water capacity of all soils,' but when . mixed with stiff clay soils it makes them looser, so that their power to absorb and retain rainfall is en larged. In sandy soils it retards ? ? XT ? ? ? AT- ~ perouittuiun, uiiua l...
