A letter was read from the- Direc tor of the Tourist Bureau, Mr E. T. Emmet t, stating that he would, not be able to attend a council meeting to discuss the opening of the Hastings caves until after his return from Melbourne about the end' of the. pre sent month. The Commissioner of Railways, who is head of the Tourist Department, is of the opinion that the, Esperance Council should be al lowed to take over the control of the caves, jbut it is unlikely that the department' will go to any expense in opening them up, as the Public Works Committee a few years ago had decided that the expense of doing so was not warr...

Fruit Case Timber PROPOSED KILN DRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 25 January 1934
Fruit Case Timber PROPOSED KILN DRYING. The, State Fruit Advisory Board last .Tuesday discussed the question of kiln drying local timber for fruit cases. Mr M. Calvert, who introduced the subject, said it was desirable to stop the importation, of case ma terial, and- suggested that the- ar tificial drying and re-conditiomng 01 local hardwood might effect this object. ' It was decided to ask the Govern ment to undertake experiments in thi9' work. While quite in accord with the principle of using only Tasmanian timber for fruit cases, we would point out that already thousands of pounds have been spent in Victoria, and a smaller amount in Tasmania, in a vain attempt to season eucalyptus timber economically. A much less costly and just as ef fective system of seasoning local hardwood is by air drying, and though this involves cutting the timber months before it is required to be made up into cases, the work can be carried out at much less cost than by any artificial system.
STACKING FRUIT ON WHARVES [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 25 January 1934
STACKING FRUIT ON WHARVES Although attention has frequently been drawn to the damage caused to fruit on the Hobart wharves by being stacked in solid blocks, and left there sometimes for a fortnight or even longer before being, placed on board ship, it was not until Tues dav last that official action towards effecting an improvement was taken. At the monthly meeting of the State Fruit Advisory Board, Mr M. Cal vert said' provision should1 be made for providing ventilation between the roofs of the wharf sheds and the fruit stacks, so that the temperature might be brought down to 50 deg., and1 Mr A. Dickson' said it was equally important to limit the' size- of the stacks and provide ventilation through them. A committee was, therefore, appointed to watch the stacking of fruit and report to the Board at a later date.

THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 25 January 1934
THE WEATHER. The Weather Bureau reports that last week was of an exceptional character. Not only was it notable for severe bush fires, but it was the driest week throughout the whole of the State for the last six years. Apart from a few light falls on the West Coast, only one or two points of rain were recorded at isolated stations. The smoke haze created by the bush fires was also of abnor mal density, completely obscuring the sun at times, and causing poor visibility. Some high temperatures were recorded, particularly on the 16th and 18th, when over 90 degrees was registered, at several stations. It is interesting to note, however, that corresponding figures for places in South Australia and Victoria were well above the 100 degrees mark, and that for several consecutive days. Extreme temperatures during the week at Hobart were 91 deg. on the 16th, and 50.2 deg. on the 20th; extremes for other parts of the State were 94 deg. at Swansea on the 16th and 18th, and 36 deg. at Moina on ...

PORT HUON TO GEEVESTON ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 25 January 1934
PORT HUON TO GEEVESTON ROAD. Mr A. C. Seabrook, M.H.A., has received advice from the Director of Public Works to the effect that, the Superintendent of Highways has been instructed to proceed at once with the repairing of the Port Huon to Geeveston road, the surface of which has broken up badly during the past few months. The work' is estimated to cost £400, and is only' intended as a temporary expedient, as it is intended to re-make the road later in the year. Mr Seabrook pointed out that to leave the road in its present condition, during the apple season would cause bruising to the fruit during transport to . the wharf, and the department therefore consented to carry out sufficient re pairs to prevent such damage from occurring.

Record Dry Spell PARTIAL RELIEF THIS WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 25 January 1934
Record Dry Spell PARTIAL RELIEF THIS WEEK. The extraordinary dry weather that has prevailed throughout South ern Tasmania this summer, and which has largely been responsible for the extensive bush fires that m-evailedi in most Darts of the country, was broken on Tuesday night and yesterday, when , a total rainfall of 28 points was recorded at the Franklin post office, which can be accepted as the average for the Huon district. While this fall was very wel come, as it has completely stopped the disastrous fires that have been raging throughout Southern Tas mania for the past week, it is not sufficient for the needs of the or chardists and' farmers. An indica tion of the extremely low rainfall is afforded by the fact that for the months of November and December, 1932, and January, 1933, the rain fall-was 10 inches 89 points, whereas for the last three months the fall has only been 2 inches 65 points. An examination of the rainfall record for the past three months at Franklin shows the...

TASMANIA HIT AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 25 January 1934
TASMANIA HIT AGAIN. The utter callousness with which Tasmanian interests are considered by Federal politicians is again ex emplified by the agreement that has been made between the Common wealth and the Dominion Govern ments with regard to the free entry of fish from the latter country into Australia. Mainland interests were greatly concerned1 recently over the action of New Zealand' in protect ing themselves against the importa tion of certain products from Aus tralia, and! they have .-been looking around for a scapegoat in order to win back New Zealand's trade, Tas mania had built up quite a good connection with Sydney in supply ing that city with about 140, OOOlbs. of barracouta last year, and the business was growing. New Zealand waters also have large quantities of this species of fish, and because it is a little more than double the ave rage size of the Tasmanian fish, the Dominion fishermen are able to mar ket it at a cheaper rate than the fishermen of this State. Here was on...
