LIQUOR TRAFFIC PROHIBITION CAMPAIGR. VIEWS OF MR. TENNYSON SMITH [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919
LIQUOR TRAFFIC PROHIBITION CAMPAIGN. VIEWS OF MR. TENNYSON SMITH &nbsp; "We will bury the drink traffic in Australia during 1920." This is the object that Mr. E. Tennyson Smith, the prohibition cru- sader, hopes to accomplish before he leaves Australia. Mr. Tennyson Smith has just con- cluded a successful campaign in Can- ada and the United States. He has come here as the result of negotia- tions with the temperance leaders in Australia. "I have been in the thick of the fight in Canada and the United States," Mr. Tennyson Smith said. "I engineered some very important- aye, historic-fights. In Quebec City (a great stronghold of the liquor traf fic) and Hull it was believed that it was utterly impossible to make any in- roads towards a dry end. But they both went 'dry' with big majorities. Quebec province was always the stumbling block to prohibition in Can- ada. Of late years the Roman Catho- lics have taken a splendid stand, and have always been willing to assist. The Domini...
PERCUIN. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919
PENGUIN. Bolt.-A Sensational bolt occurred yesterday. Mr. J. Morris, the new mail contractor, arrived at the Post Office to deliver the mails, with a lady and five children in the coach, and as he left the coach to enter the Post Office, a passing stockman cracked his whip, which caused the horses to bolt through the town. One boy jumped &nbsp; out, but received nothing worse than grazed knees. The frightened ani- mals continued their wild career for several miles along the Ulverstone road and, after passing a motor car travelling in the opposite direction, were eventually captured by Mr. C. Hales, who drove them back to Pen- guin. Neither the horses, vehicle, or passengers appeared any the worse for the adventure.

DEVONPORT IMPROVEMENTS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MEETING OF TOURIST ASSOCIATION. A meeting of the North-Western Tourist and Progress Association was held at the Devonport Council Cham- bers last night, the president (Mr. W. Jeffrey) occupying the chair. On the motion of Major Black, it was decided to senil a letter of condol- ence to Cr. Driscoll upon the death of his son, Dr. Driscoll. The president reported having erect- ed five notice boards on Victoria Par- ade, and also four seats. He remark- ed that he had been complimented by visitors upon the wording of the notice boards, which was simply, "This is your property; please protect it." In regard to the proposal to effect &nbsp; improvements to the Esplanade, East &nbsp; Devonport, a report was tabled by Mr. B. Laycock recommending that a path be cleared and levelled in places from Stewart's Jetty, northward to the causeway, and also that two rustic bridges be erected, at a total cost of £34. ...

FUNDING WORK FOR SOLDIERS APPEAL TO EMPLOYERS. LOCAL COMMITTEES TO CONFER.

SUICIDE AT CLAREMONT [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919
SUICIDE AT CLAREMONT &nbsp; The local Coroner (Mr. H. S. R. Wright) held an inquiry at Glenorchy on Saturday morning concerning the death of Thomas Lonergan (40) at Claremont Camp on Friday. The evi- dence adduced went to show that a camp sergeant found the body on Fri- day afternoon with an apparently self inflicted wound in the throat. The medical evidence supported this theory, and other witnesses stated that the de- ceased had been depressed of late owing to severe attacks of rheumatism. A verdict of suicide while temporarily in- sane was returned.
SHEFFIELD THEFT RAILWAY STATION OFFICE ENTERED. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919
SHEFFIELD THEFT RAILWAY STATION OFFICE &nbsp; &nbsp; ENTERED. &nbsp; TV railway stationmaster at Shef- field had a surprise awaiting him yes- terday morning, when after opening the office he found that the cash drawer had been broken open and the contents taken. The thief (or thieves) had small reward for their trouble, as the till only contained two or three shillings in coppers. It is hard to say when the theft oc- curred, as the office was locked from Saturday till yesterday morning, when Mr. Baggot resumed duty. Entrance was made through the ticket window, which is just large enough for a man to squeeze through, only a small brass bolt holding it down. The drawer offered no difficulty to even the veriest amateur, being merely held by a small brass lock, and was easily prised open. The safe itself, in which of course, the cash is always kept, did not appeal to the robber, or if so, it was a case of "sour grapes", there being no mark on it. Beyond a quantit...

RAIN IN THE NORTH [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919
RAIN IN THE NORTH &nbsp; &nbsp; LAUNCESTON, Monday.-After a &nbsp; week of hot weather, and very close' &nbsp; atmospheric conditions to-day, a light &nbsp; steady rain started to fall to-night. It &nbsp; is badly wanted in the North, and es- &nbsp; pecially on the North-Eastern tin &nbsp; fields. &nbsp; &nbsp;

He was remanded until January 13.
PARSIMONY GOVERNMENT MAINTAINS ITS RECORD DEVON HOSPITAL EMBARRASSED [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919
PARSIMONY GOVERNMENT MAINTAINS ITS &nbsp; RECORD . &nbsp; DEVON HOSPITAL EMBARRASSED The attitude of successive Govern- &nbsp; ments towards the hospitals of the &nbsp; State has eluded the ordinary person's &nbsp; understanding for many years past. While full and plenty, and perhaps more than has been necessary, has been lavished on Hobart and Launceston, the Devon Hospital, which serves an &nbsp; equally large territory and population, and has half the number of beds, is treated in the most niggardly manner imaginable. If the care of the sick is the business of the State in one case, it should be in the other, but some- thing else appears to be the determin- ing factor. Neither of the city institu- &nbsp; tions can show such good management as the Devon, not merely in late years, but from the beginning, and, because it has managed with so little, that lit- &nbsp; tle appears to be grudged. The insti- &nbsp; tu...
QUARANTINE IN AMERICA. COMPARISON WITH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919
QUARANTINE IN AMERICA. COMPARISON WITH AUSTRALIA. Judged by American standards, the Australian achievement in defeating the influenza epidemic by means of the quarantine barrier was more than could reasonably be expected. A let- ter received by the Commonwealth Di- rector of Quarantine (Dr. Cumpston) &nbsp; from the former head of the American quarantine service state that at the outset "the quarantine service admit- &nbsp; ted that it was impracticable to im- pose quarantine detention on influenza &nbsp; cases and suspects." The failure of &nbsp; other countries to rise to the occa- &nbsp; sion, by comparison with the complete success up to the present stage of Australian methods, is quite natural- ly causing a considerable measure of &nbsp; satisfaction to the Australian quaran- &nbsp; tine authorities. Dr. Cumpston, &nbsp; &nbsp; however, considers that the danger is &nbsp; not yet past, although in t...
TROPICAL STORM, AT SYDNEY BATHER KILLED BY LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919
TROPICAL STORM AT SYDNEY &nbsp; BATHER KILLED BY LIGHTNING. &nbsp; SYDNEY, Monday.-A storm of ex- ceptional violence, lasting about 20 minutes, passed over Sydney last night. Hailstones the size of pigeon's eggs fell so heavily that the ground was soon covered with ice. Many windows were broken, causing consid- erable damage to interiors. At one city boot store it was estimated that the stock suffered to the extent of £1000, owing to the damaged roof ad- mitting rain. Numerous minor accidents were re- ported, but only one fatality. This oc- curred at Bondi beach, where Mrs. Isa- bella Mathers, of Double Bay, was struck dead by lightning as she was leaving the water with her husband and daughter for shelter.
