MILITARY MASQUERADE. SCOTSMEN RESENT A JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 2 April 1910
MILITARY MASQUERADE. SCOTSMEN RESENT A . - JOKE. ? ? A volunteer camp is being held - -at Liverpool, and a- day or two ' ago some pretty manoeuvres were - spoiled through a section of the . Scottish Highlanders becoming ? bushed. Subsequently some . humorists of the St. George's . Rifles tnnkfid nil their trousers. donned blankets 'for kilts, blewj penny trumpets for bagpipes, andi - marched up and down in imita-j ? tion of- their northern friends. I The Highlanders simulatedi amusement, and tried to regardl the pantomime as an English . joke, -but, emboldened by the ap plause of the crowd, the mas ?- queraders encroached % on the Scottish lines, and repe'ated the ? performance. This was more than Celtic blood could bear. With a wild yell ' the pipers dashed from their tents, followed by the men of the regiment, in one fierce Highland charge. They scattered their adversaries, tore from 'their backs the blan kets and trappings, and dipped a few of the Southerns in buckets.
THE FEDERAL ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 2 April 1910
THE FEDERAL ELECTION. To-night, at the Town Hall, the elec tors of this part of the Franklin Electoral Division will have the oppor tunity of hearing addresses by the two retiring Senators — Messrs H. Dobson and E. Mulcahy. Both these gentlemen are able speakers, and have a wide know ledge of Federal affairs, and as it is announced that this evening tney win deal with the most important of the Federal questions that are agitating the pnblic mind to-day, no elector who wishes to obtain a true and clear con ception of these matters should fail to attend the meeting. Never before in the history of the Commonwealth have the issues presented at any election been of such vital importance as those which are to be decided on £the 13th instant. Therefore it is very necessary that the electors should, lose no opportunity of ascertaining exactly what they are asked to vote upon. The mission of the speakers this evening is, first, to give an account of their 'Stewardship ; and, secondly, to add...
THE SUEVIC FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 2 April 1910
THE SUEVIC FRUIT. A statement made by the Minis ter of Agriculture, and published ha another column, officially con firms the announcement made in the last issue of the ' Huon Times,' that the action taken by the. Government in connection with the slanderous assertions made concerning the conditiou of the fruit shipped by the Suevic has been hung up by what appears to be a regrettable exhibition of red tapism. It ap pears that the only person in the State from whom the informa tion required by the Tasmanian Government to form the basis of their future action in the matter can be - obtained is the State Collector of Customs. That officer has full details of the fruit shipped in his possession, em bodied in a report furnished him by the Inspector, but for some reason, which is inexplicable to us, he has 'declined to disclose the contents of the document ' without the authority of his Minister.' This atfcitud© ig cer tainly very extraordinary, ajid seems to be as unnecessary as it is i...

The remnant of the Field Ar-j tillery who stuck to their guns at Mornington on Monday night, entrained in the early hours of the morning, and arrived with their horses and. guns at the South Melbourne and Caulfield orderly rooms before noon. Pre sumably the district comman dant will have an enquiry held to ascertain who was blamable for the disgraceful fiasco whereby the four days camp was reduced to two davs, and public monev was absolutely wasted in convey ing troops to and from the isolated camping ground without giving them a decent course of instruction while , enpamped.

PERICLES FOUNDERS. COLLISION WITH A ROCK. PASSENGERS AND CREW . SAFE.' - . VALUABLE CARGO LQST. . Cosiderable consternation was caused in shipping circles in Hobart yesterday by the receipt of advice, brief though it was, that the Aberdeen liner Pericles, which left Hobart on March: 22 for Melbourne, en route 'te Londoa with fruit for the English' market, had foundered off the Western Australian coast. ? -The first news of the disaster was very vague, even the identity of the vessel not being known.

MOSQUITOES. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 2 April 1910
MOSQUITOES. The mosquito pest, with which Aus tralia throughout is more or less gene rously afflicted, provides a subject ' in which everyone is to some extent inter ested, and concerning which all are at odd limes irritated. How to abolish the mosquito is a question which is puzzling -entomologists and other scientific persons all over the world, for there is n»w no known habitable part of the earth's sur face that does not grow mosquito food. England, it is . said, knew ' nothing of mosquitoes till her inhabitants developed a love for bananas, when the insect put in- its appearance simultaneously with the tropical fruit. That this was the original introduction of the mosquito to Great_ Britain seems very doubtful— in- deed, it savours more of an excuse — for mosquitoes abound in both hemispheres from the tropics to Polar recions. Cer tainly Sir Ernest Shackelton's records made no mention of them at the Antarc tic, but their absence from those lati tudes may be accounted for by rea...
