THE PERICLES FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910
THE PERICLES FRUIT-. The announcement made in our adver tising columns to-day, regarding the Pericles fruit will doubtless come as satisfactory news to all those who had shipments in the vessel named. It is a notification from Messrs H. Jones and Co., to the effect that tliey have received came uuvice irom meir juoncion agents, that they have received 10s per case from the Underwriters upon all the fruit lost in tho Pericles. This will mean a net return ! o shippers, that should make the Pericles one of the ' best' boats of the season from their standpoint, and they should be gratified at? this prompt settlement of the matter of tho insurance — a promptitude that is unprecedented.
Federal Land Tax A State Minister's Fears. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910
Federal Land Tax A State Minister's Fears. The. Minister of Works, Mr Leo, in addressing delegates to the Shire Conference on Tuesday, said they all believed that taxa tion on the land of the State was the sole perogative of the State Government, and, that it should never be interfered with. He viewed with much conceri; the proposed introduction of a pro gressive land tax by the Federal Government. He feared * it was' going to have a baneful effect on the,. work of local government. He could not for a moment get out of his mind that the Federal Government was going to take a large slice out of the State loaf. That would diminish it, and it would tend in the direction of re duced land values. After that had been brought about he feared for the shires. He wondered, where they were going to derive their revenue. Their expendi ture was not going to get any iess, because country districts' were opening up very rapidly, and were being settled in all directions. The demand upon localsliire...
HARNESSING HUON WATERS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910
HARNESSING HUON WATERS- - TO THE EDITOR. Sir, — I have read in the. columns of your paper that Councillor Casey, at the last meeting of the Huon Council, tabled a motion that at the next meeting of the Council lie will move, — ' That the Government be requested to send Mr Re;id Bell to this district to examine and report on the suitability of tho upper p3rt of the Huon River for generating electric power, and the said report to he supplied to this Council.' I am very glad to see that Councillor Casey is moving, in this matter, as I consider this municipality has a most valuable asset in its water power almost at our door, the mouth of the River Arve being only 16 miles distant from Huonville. We there have a, fall of 500ft., but if that fall is not sufficient we have only to go to the mouth of the Picton River, 5 miles away, and we get about one foot in a hundred, making a total fall of 764ft. If wo re quire a greater height even than that we can still continue on and follow the Huo...

SIGNALS IN MINES. * . r ...... PRESENT CODE ^REGARDED AS -UNWORKABLE. 'A conference of delegates from the Bendigo Mining Managers', Engine Drivers', - ^and Miners' Associations was; held at the Beehive Exchange on Monday evening last, under the presi dency of Mr R. Martin (Mining Manager), for ;the purpose of discussing the uniform code of signals issued 'by the Mines Department, and to take' steps? for a revision of the same. The ? . conference appeared to be unani mous on the point that' /the pre sent code is unworkable in the mines in this district, and the following resolution was carried on the motion of Mr Shepherd (Miners' Association), seconded by Mr J. Veale (Mining Mana^ gers) ' That in the opinion of this conference the present code, after twelve months' trial, is con sidered unworkable.' Several; cases were instanced in support of the argument that the signal, knock ' one,' which means either hold fast or heave - up, had led to narrow escapes from serious accidents, and ...

CROWDED OUT. VICTORIAN EXPORTER'S FATE. STATEMENT BY MR. GRAHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910
CROWDED OUT. . \ VICTORIAN EXPORTER'S FATE. STATEMENT BY MR. GRAHAM. The Victorian export trade in beef and mutton is, according to the Victorian Minister for Agriculture (Mr Graham), being severely h&ndicarped by. shipping difficulties. He, says , the State Cool Stores are full of meat which cannot be shipped on any of the steamers leaving Melbourne because their freezing cham bers are already crowded with produce from other port3. Mr Graham says that many of the steamers . call at five ports before reaching Melbourne, and by that time they have very little' spac3 left, -As a result, Victorian exporters are finding it impossible to send their meat away, and they are being compelled to suffer serious losses. In many cases they are having to cancol contracts made with European importers. This condition of .in Vioirinrr it« nfffir.t on the nro ducers, as the exporters, realising that they can ship only a small quantity of meat, are curtailing their buying and slaughtering of s...

There was a good attendance, a fair number coming from Geeveston, and a good quota from Lovett, some of whom were conveyed hither by Mr Fitzpatrick's motor launch Palana, which the owner generously placed at their disposal, while others travelled by way of the road. Dainty refreshments were served during the evening, and dancing was indulged in till a lats hour, the music being supplied by Miss Doran of Hobart; ? The function was an unqualified success, and every credit is due to Mrs Oakford for the manner in which she carried out all the arrangements. She has always been an energetic worker in church matters, or, it might be said, the cause of philan thropy generally, and in this instance, as in everything else she undertake...

GEEVESTON. ? \ - . ' (From Our Own Correspondent.) It is with considerable regret that the people of Geeveston'learn that they are shortly to lose their resident medico, Dr. Stephens. During the time he has been in our midst he has won the esteem of everybody with whom he became asso ciated, and has made a large circle of friends. The tennis club particularly will feel his departure, as he was their lead ing player, and practically the pioneer of the game in these parts. He is proceed ing to Latrobe, and it* is -safe to assert that he will carry with him the' heartiest wishes of everybody resident in these parts for success and. happiness in his new sphere of labor. ?'

JEEEUIESJOHN SON FIGHT. JEFFRIES IN ACTiVE TRAINING. ' BOTH CONTESTANTS CONFIDENT. With the Jeffries- Johnson heavyweight championship fight yet ten weeks off, the interest in tho contest is of the most in tense nature all over America, and, in deed, all over the civilised world, judging by the number of seats already subscribed, for from abroad. It i3not only forecasted that the ' house ' will represent tho greatest sum of money ever paid to see a prize fight in the history of the sport, but that double as much will be, taken in at the gates as the greatest total hitherto recorded (writes the ' Age ' correspond ent in San Francisco). Something under £40,000 stands as tho record now. The promoters of tho Jeffries- Johnson contest are estimating that, with the price of seat3 ranging from £1 to '£10, they will take in something between £80,000 and £100, ooo: 'Jeff' has now settled down to the steady grind of his preparation for the fight of his life. With a corp3 of trainers he is ins...
PERNICIOUS TEA DRINKING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 28 May 1910
PERNICIOUS TEA DRINKING. ? ' ' ^ ? — ,? v In the report on education in Ireland a strange feature i-3 introduced in a denun-. ciation of tea drinking. Mr Dalton, of the Galway circuit, de clares that the use of tea is now carried to such dangerous excess that it ranks before alcohol as an enemy of the public health. To aggravate the situation, it is in the very poorest parts of tho country that the tea evil is most active and hurt ful. Outside . the slums of the cities and larger towns there are no people in the British Islands who have to endure a more miserable lot than the congested population of the Connaught seaboard ; and yet the carts and vans of the itinerant tea vendors are to be seen every day going in and out among the most' back- ward and inaccessible Connemara villages. The teapot, stewing on the hearth all day long, is kept literally on tap. Speeder : ' That auto of mine doesn't go fast enough.' Roaster: ' What's the matter.' Speeder: 'Several victims have complained t...

Burns and Fitzsimmons by the Marama -on 6th June, tran shipping at Honolulu for San Francisco. [A correspondent writes from San Fraucisco, as follows : News that the match between 'Tommy' Burns and ' Sam' Langford, appears to be all off, there is a disposition to invite Bill Lang, who lost to Burns in Sydney on 11th April, to fight Langford. According to the aecounts of the Sydney fight received here, Lang, though beaten, had the better of the encounter for the greater part of the twenty rounds, and his per formance is accepted as stamping him a boxer of ability. There Js a good chance for Lang if he should come to America now. He has been better advertised here than even Bill Squires was. Lang ford is a dangerous fighter, and if Lang should beat him he probably would be given a match against the win...

LOVETT. V (From our own Correspondent.) I The weather here continues cold. and bleak, with occasional showers. A good rain fell during Thursday night. The football season is now under way, an.d there is promise of a good deal of interest being manifested in the pastime. And the ladies, it appears, are not going to be the least conspicuous m tnis regard. Already they are actively demonstrating their interest in the welfare of the Club, by arranging for a concert and dance, with the object of raising, funds to enable the players to sport stockings, and guernseys. They are apparently anxious -to see the players appear on tho field looking uniformly attractive. The colours decided upon are black and white. A football match is to be played here on Saturday afternoon, between the local 1 combination and Garden Island Creek ; given fine weather a goo I game is anticipated,' y v ' ?
