A LAUNCESTON LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 March 1910
A LAUNCESTON LETTER. ' r By ' Asmodens.' politics are a back- number in Launces ton. Mr Jenoon is absent in Hobart, while Mr- Storrer is in the country. I could not promise myself even a modicum of excitement though both of them were in the -city and ranting like a very Boanerges. Truth to tell, neither Davio nor August is a passable third-rate talker, not to speak of orator. To begin, neither has a very clear idea of what constitutes an argument. If you spoke of a syllogism, they would confess that thoy had never met the gentleman and were entirely ignorant of his party pre^ dilections. Again, neither, is troubled with any superabundance of ideas, or with any breadth qf reading, Perhaps Jensen could claim a romote acquaint ance with the rudimentary forms of wit and humour, and might occasionally evoke a laugh from a good-natured audience if already disposed to jocularity. Davie seldom smiles himself, and I think he would disdain the thought of engratiat ing himsolf with the audienc...

GIRLS FIGHT A LOVE DUEL. CROSS AUSTRIAN FRONTIER ' FOR REVOLVER COMBAT. ~ A\ duel '^ between two girl students took place at Prester litz, a small. village, vclose-to the Austrian frontier.,' The com batants, who were studying medicine at Cracow, had fallen' in love with a dashing young medical student named Breitner, who made love to both of them in turn, and avoided becoming en gaged to either. The rivalry for ?? his affections excited violent hatred, which led to' a 'quarf.el and- the exchange of blows, The two girls considered themselves bound by the same , rules of chivalry that held . good among their male companions. In these circles blows demand the shed ding of blood, and a duel is the inevitable consequence of a hand to-hand fight. Consequently Ilonca llnetsky, who received the first blow, chal lenged Olga Metzeroff, who struck hor, by sending two other girl students as her seconds.

FEDERAL ELECTIONS. THE VICTORIAN CAMPAIGN. MELBOURNE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 30 March 1910
FEDERAL ELEC - ' TION.S. T.HE VICTORIAN CAMPAIGN (By Our Own Correspondent). Melbourne, Saturday. The single surprise in connec tion with Federal nominations in Victoria was' provided by the Rev. Ronald, who abandoned his effort to win the Port Melbourne seat in the House of Represen tives, and lodged his paper as a Senate candidate. If Labor had any chance of securing one of the three seats that ends it. . The proceedings in the Harper case have given Ronald a big adver tisement, and, as rightly or wronely, a lot of people regard him as an ill-used' man he w'ill get a sympathetic vote right through the State. ' It won't be nearly large enough to .put -him in, but it '''will be drawn almost exclusively from Labor, not from the people in the Leagues, but from that neutral body of wage earners which Labor polls when ever it. scores. Then, again, the candidoture of Miss Vida Goldstein will injure the Labor three. Some Laborites have been egging the lady on under the impression that she...
