HUON ELECTORS, HARKEN! TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 30 March 1910
HUON ELECTORS, HARKED! A TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— On the ere of an election7 it is sometimes, if not at all times, best that the electors should understand each other better than they do. From our isolated positions, having so many small oentres of population, it is not easy for us to always meet to discuss matters, and often m public meetings there are obstructionists who make disturbances if they think their party is in any way assailed or criticised, so that halfex pressed sentences are misunderstood to a large extent, and often made to appear contrary to the speaker's wish. Through the medium of your valuable newspaper I think we, by'' your permission, ? Mr Editor, may be helpful to each other in many public matters, and teach the Huon to make common cause in many things that it now makes local to its own hurt. The choice of a member as a representative in the Hou^e of Repre sentative^ and of three members for the Senate of the Commonwealth is now before us. Which side are you going...

A MAN-BIRD LIST AMERICA. REMARKABLE AEBQRLANE : ' ? feats. ;: -,.; ?-;? j , Californians have lately been treated (says a San Francico correspondent on February 13) to the sight of some wonderful feats in aerial navigation. There has been a ' meet ' at Los Angeles and an exhibition at San Francisco, at which Louis Paul han, a Frenchman, flying in a Farman bi-plane, has proved himself a veritable man-bird, and in several respects has broken all world's records; In Los Angeles he attained a. height jf 4000 feet, which exceeds any thing before accomplished with a flying machine. Paulhan seems to have perfect control over his machine. Rather than disap point a crowd of 30,000 people in San Francisco he ascended in a perfect gale of wind, conquering the storm. In the gale he flew for eight minutes, buffeting with air currents in the endeavor to find a level where there was no danger. He admitted that the flight was the most. hazardous he had ever undertaken, and at times his bi-Rlane was...

ST. JOHN'S : CHURCH SHOW. - ? — ? - ^ ? Fine Display of Fruit and Flowers. The Prize-winners. The annual Fruit and Flower Show, arranged by the members of the St. John's Church, Franklin, was held on the church grounds on Monday. The Sun day School club room and a large marciuee were used for the purpose, all three combining to make one large show room. The show was successful from every standpoint, and the result must havo been extremely gratifying to those who organised it. The exhibits were numerous in all classes, and generally of a high standard of excellence. They included fruit, flowers, vegetables, cooking and home produce, and in many of the sections the adjudicators were set a very difficult task. Fruit and flowers were most strongly represented. In the fruit class the exhibits were particularly well colored for the time of the year, and of generally excellent quality. Messrs Gordon and Charles Freeman and L. Griggs were the most successful exhibi tors, carrying off the ma...

PORT CYGNET ~ RACES. - A Successful Day. D'ouble Won by C.J.R. The annual meeting of the Port Cygnet Racing Club was held on the club's course on Easter Monday, under de lightful auspices. The day was gloriously fine and the attendance large. Excur sions were run from Hobart by the steamer Marana, and from Franklin bv the s.s. Huon. Both steamers, which were under charter to the club, were well patronised. Though the finishes in , the different events were not of an exciting nature, the racing generally was of a good standard, by reason of the fact that several well-known performers were amongst the starters. The fields for the trots were satisfactory, and, in some cases the betting was well distributed. C.J.R., trotting in fine style, accounted for a double, while another of the visi tors — Oakwood — carried off the' Porf Cygnet Trot. Tas, a locally-owned trotter with a grext turn of speed, was first home to the judge, but was dis qualified fot crossing Oakwood in the straight. The...

The efforts of Jhg Government Jo ob tain the information necessary 'to enable, them to take some decisive acjipji' in connection with the slanderous state ments made recently concerning Tas manian fruit shipments have, it is understood, been brought to a standstill by the extraordinary attitude taken up by the Collector of Customs at Hobart.
