I.O.G.T. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 4 June 1910
1.Q.G.T' The Juvenile Templars gave q, service of song entitled 'The Little Captain' in the hall, Ranelagh, ? last Tuesday night. There was a fair attendance, and the entertainment proved most enjoyable. Mr Goodwin, sen.; had gone to a great deal of trouble in training the young sters, and the rendering of the service reflected great credit upon him. Miss Goodwin pre sided ac the piano, and Mr Wagg gave the connective readings in a very eloquent style. The pro ceeds are to be^devoted to pro viding the. lodge with a piano. At the conclusion of the song service the Rev. C. Lumsden proposed a vote of. thanks to . Mr Goodwin for the trouble and time he had expended in preparing the service; The vote was carried by exclamation, Mr Goodwin-^ suitably replying. ' '«

A Cold Snap. Coach Passengers' Experience. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 4 June 1910
A Cold Snap. ! ? ♦ ? : ? Coach Passengers' Expe rience. The first forceful ' intimation that winter is upon us was given on Thursday last, and perhaps nobody has the fact more deeply impressed upon them' than those persons who travelled _to the Huon ^ by the night coach; As 'Tom' Watson whipped his team out of the capital rain was falling heavily, and the discomfiture or tnose wnq neroicauy tooKup berlns on j* the front box to relieve the lonliness of ^| the driver was accentuated by a biting sou'-wester beating direct in their faces. When approaching the Fern Tree ' a blinding snowstorm was encountered and from the , higher - levels the sight of majestic ; Wellington, clothed in her : winter garb.was revealed.' At the first stopping stage '?

Fruit Inspection. V PREMIER'S VISIT TO SYDNEY. In an interview yesterday the Minister of Agriculture (Hon. A. Hean) said the Government were still' pursuing their efforts to get some alteration in the pre- - sent system of fruit inspection. He, and the other members of the Cabinet were satisfied as to its unfairness, and it was-^ their intention to get some improvement ehected at the earliest possible oppor- i tunity. ' The Premier,' he added. ' is ] going to Sydney shortly, and it is his i intention to confer with tbe Government j there in regard tathe matter. We recog nise that the local inspection is a farce if New South Wales persists in its refusal to recognise the Tasmanian cer- ) tificate, and our aim is to get an effective ] system of single inspection established.'

Excelsior in a Storm. A TEMPESTUOUS PASSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 4 June 1910
Excelsior in a Storm. \ . . . - ? : ? ?* ? r- ; A TEMPESTUOUS PASSAGE. Those on board the s.s. Excelsior on her voyage 'from Hobart on Thursday were subjected to a rather rough ex perience. The weather was extremely boisterous, a strong southerly windi accompanied by rain, prevailing through out the trip. When approaching Huon Island a strong gale and high seas were encountered.' Captain Rowe kept his stout little vessel with her head into the angry elements, and she came through in splendid style, but not without Some discomfort to at least some of these who were travelling by her. The seas fre quently broke over her .decks, and th« spray was shooting high over her funnel. It is reported that a number of empty cases were lost overboard, but beyond this no damage or loss resulted. The Star and Victoria also ran into this, raging sou'-wester, but they sought the shelter of Huon Island until it obated. Captain Rowe asserts that it is the roughest trip he has had during the whole of hi...
Fruit Inspection. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 4 June 1910
Fruit inspection. WHILE assembled to-night, with the primary object of discussing the scheme propounded by Messrs H. Jones and Go, for the exploita tion of new markets for our apples, fruitgrowers should seize tne opportunity to discuss tne matter of fruit inspection. For a very long time past everybody who has had any direct connec tion with the export of fruit have been fully cognisant of the arrant absurdity of the existing method, and many have been loud in their protestations against its continuance. But their represen tations might fairly be likened to the crying of babes in the wilderness. They have been re sultless, if not unheard, and to day we find the same farcical conditions in existence as have furnished the cause of com plaint right through the piece, accentuated in their harmfulness by the arrogance and avaricious ness of the authorities of another of the States. We have' already shown in these columns that at the present moment a depart ment is being run on highly pr...
POLICE BLOODHOUNDS. SUCCESSFUL FIRST EXPERIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 4 June 1910
POLICE BLOODS HOUNDS. SUCCESSFUL FIRST EXPERIMENT. A bloodhound named Shadower, belonging to Constable Wilson, of Marlborough (England), was the hero last month of an excit ing chase of gipsies across the ?downs. Information was given at the police headquarters of depreda tions by a band of gipsies who were encamped on a lonely spot on the downs, about four miles away. Superintendent Mackine instructed Wilson to take his bloodhound Shadower— which he has had in training for a year— and go in pursuit. Wilson reached the scene of the encampment an hour after the gipsies had left, and at once set Shadower to work-to track mom over me downs. Alter making a complete circuit of the camp the hound, with nose well down, ran away across the down, with Wilson following on his bicycle. . The hound, never at fault, took Wilson for a mile across the down, then into cross-roads, and on over the fields by a circuitous route, out on to the highway again, about a mile along which tho hound came up t...

LIFEBOATMEN STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 4 June 1910
LIFEBOATMEN STRIKE. ? Hurt by the refusal of the National v Lifeboat Institution to pay them for a recent launch, fifteen of the crew of the Broadstairs lifeboat pledged themselves not to go out again. Last month the coxswain of the lifeboat received a mes sage'that the East Goodwin lightship had reported that a vessel had gone ashore. The lifeboat was launched and proceeded to the Goodwin Sands. The grounded vessel was, however, refloated with the assistance of the Ramsgate and Walmer ; lifeboats, and the Broadstairs boat re turned without rendering any assistance. A claim by the Broadstairs crew of £2 5s . per man was afterwards refused, and the men accordingly struck. It has been - dec'.ded to put the lifeboat in custody of ? a caretaker and dispense with a crew, the coast being well served with lifeboats elsewhere.

It was while the Malwa was steaming from Suez to Aden tha^she received news of the death of King Edward by ' wireless.' Subse quently a memorial service, .at which the whole ship's company assembled, was held on board. It was of a most impres sive nature. Long-distance ' wireless' operations proved a feature of the voyage. Off Minikoy on the 13th May communica tion was established and carried on by the Marconi system with the Bombay station, 644 miles distant. A week later H.M.S. Challenger was 'spoken' 934 miles away, all the latest news being re ceived from the warship. After making the Australian coast, the Malwa encountered a good deal...

Charles Towhshend, who mas queraded as a ballet girl in the city, when incidentally he also did a, tumbling '' turn ' in the open air, made a matinee appear ance before the City Bench on Thursday. The prisoner, an elderly man, was still attired in his outrageous rig out, and his appearance in court caused the slumbering habitues to wake up with a start. The burnt cork effects had vanished from Towns hend's face, under, the persusion of the lock-up sand soap. Ac cused told the Bench that his 'kick up ' was the outcome of a . ? ' lark ' with some friends, who dared him to go into the street dressed in female garb. 'I'd much rather have been born a girl,' reflected the aged mas querader! ' Then I'd not have been here.

SUNDAY DRINKING. ' . THE BAY STEAMERS. ? COMPANIES PROMISE . ( SUPERVISION. Recently a deputation from the Victorian Alliance waited on the Premier to protest against the unrestricted sale of * liquor^ on Sundays on the Bay excursion steamers, and the consequent . drunkenness which occurred. On Monday representatives of the owners ,of the steamers had a private interview with the Pre , mier. on the subject. The Premier stated subsequently that the ?' owners expressed their desire that sobriety should be main tained on board their steamers on every day, and ' especially on Sunday. They stated that people often carried liquor on board, and that possibly some cases of intoxi cation were due to this practice. They undertook, : however, to exercis_e a stricter supervision over the sale of liquor on board in future. The Premier said he had promised to give the proposal of the own&rs a fair trial, and that he hoped as a result there would be an improvement in the con . duct of Sund...
