| THE BEST COUNTRY ON EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 6 April 1910
THE BEST COUNTRY ON EARTH. This is the best country on earth to live in, in comfort, and not a bad. one to die in either. A man does not need much sense to accomplish this either. He can always earn money in Aus tralia, and he can always save some if he has but the necessary sense. It will be found, in nine cases out of ten, that non .success can be traced to the absence of such sense on the part of the individual concerned. Every man, if he is sufficiently deter mined about it, may be even better off in the future than he may be to-day. He . will not need any Old-Age Pension. A Policy in the National Mutnal Life Association will provide for his future, and will also protcct his dependents in the meantime WITHOUT ANY ACTUAL COST TO HIM. They' will tell you all about it at the _ Head Office in Macquarie-street, Hobart, - * if you write or eall. , The National Mutual is the most ^ o gressive and successful Life Office in Australia, .

MADE IN AUSTRALIA. Great Object Lesson in Sydney. Free-traders Surprised. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 6 April 1910
MADE IN AUS . TRALIA. Great Object Lesson in* Sydney, Free-traders Surprised. Sydney last week 'had its first glimpse at what the great Aus tralian policy, of protection has done for it. Thursday was manu facturers' day, and all the lead ing firms, of shopkeepers, devoted their window shows exclusively to Australian manufactures.- It was surprising to the casual passer-by to realise the immense variety and extent of these goods. Even men who study the subject were hardly prepared for all they saw. When the president of the New South Wales Chamber of Manufacturers, Mr Farleigh, gazed at beautiful samples- of pottery in one city window which had come direct from Australian workshops, in all the most deli cate colors an'd texture of -the ceramic art, and adorned in the approved designs of the finest ware, of its kind, he frankly ad mitted that he had had no idea that these things were made so well in the Commonwealth. This exhibition, promoted by the Chamber of ? Manufactures, brought ...
Machine Politics. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 6 April 1910
Machine Politics. DURING the last few weeks the electors in different .parts of the Huon district have been fed up with the time-worn platitudes of I the Labor Party. State mem bers, and aspirants for Federal Parliamentary honors in the Socialistic cause, have- been on the stump relating with amusing fervor their wild political dreams, attempting to gulli the simple elector into believing what a beautiful land Australia would be if the party to which they belonged were predominant — a nation flowing with milk and honey, where the worker could dictate his hours of work and rate of wages, or elect whether he should work at all or live as a parasite on bociety.- Indeed, it would become the loafers para dise . of the Antipodes. This political romancing sounds well, and, perhaps', appears alluring to many until it comes within the glare of the searchlight of free criticism, then all its fascination fades. Its foundation crumbles, leaving a tottering edifice, at which even many of its con...
THE SUEVIC FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 6 April 1910
THE SUEVIC FRUIT. N 19 IT comes as rather startling news that owing to what, on the face of it, certainly appears to be were official petulance, Go vernment action in connection with the slanders cast upon the Suevic fruit, is still being hung up. More than two weeks ago the feelings of all concerned ifi the welfare of the, Tasmanian fruit industry were incensed by certain public , utterances which they openly claim to be grossly untrue, and a cruel libel on the industry, yet we find that up to the present nothing has been done to secure a refutation of the slander, or to penalise those who circulated them. The request that an' exhaustive enquiry should be held has not even been acceded to, This is not due, however. , to any laxity on the part of the Tasmanian .Govern ment, but to a fine exhibition .of that impudent arrogance that characterises so many of the actions of the Federal Govern ment. All that the State Minis ter of Agriculture has asked for are the brands and number of ca...

A MASTER OF THE AXE. AXEMEN'S CARNIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 6 April 1910
A MASTER OF THE AXE. AXEMEN'S CARNIVAL. The annual carnival of the Royal Wood-chopping, Sawing, and Axemen's Association of Now South Wales was held on the Royal Agricultural Society's. grounds at Sydney on Thursday last. It was - the largest and most representative gathering of axemen ever held here, there being contestants from Victoria, Tasmania, Queensland, and New Zealand. J. W. Heckenberg, ,who claims to be the champion axeman of the Commonwealth, has retired, and the title, will probably be the gift of the association. A feature of the carnival was the estab lishment by Charles Miley, of Victoria, of a claim to recognition as champion. Heavily handi capped, Miley defeated all comers for the Interstate Cup. He also won the New South Wales Axemen's Cup, Handicap. His display of skill and force in chopping through a log 18in. in diameter was remarkable. He is a master of the axe, and was so little disturbed by his big handi cap that he did not even remove his boxer hat. The resu...

TWO BOYS' DROWNED. PLUCKY ATTEMPT AT - RESCUE'. ' The body of 'the boy George Craig, who was drowned in the Yarra near Hawthorn bridge on Wednesday evening: lkst while endeavorins to save a comrade named Victor Futcher who had fallen into the water and was also drowned, was recovered by Constables Lawrence and Feehan on Thursday morning and con veyed to the morgue. The lad George Adniaris, aged 14, who was the first to attempt to re cover the bodies, is the - son ot a, well-known resident of Rich mond, Mr Geo. H. Admans, who has for many years been a mem ber of the Richmond Council. Further particulars show that young Admans, who is a student at Wesley College, was on his way home from the day's school ing, and was just about to enter the gateway when he encoun tered one of the two surviving boys, andt asked him why he was crying. The lad explained, and young Admans raced off to the river at top speed, divested him self of his clothing and dived several times without being able to l...

SCHOONER RELIC WRECKED. -ti ? FOUNDERS OFF TASMAN i-.;, IAN COAST. ALL HANDS SAFE. ? ? ' Hobart, Tuesday. The citizens of Hobart .. were again shocked on Saturday by the receipt of the news of another shipping disaster, though fortunately, as in the case of fche Pericles wreck, was not attended by any loss of life. This latest addition to the already long list of ill-fated vessels that have found their last resting-place in the ' mighty deep ' is the schooner Relic. She was bound from Adventure Bay to Adelaide timber laden, and met her fate while sailing along the North' east coast of Tasmania. She left the Channel Port on the 29th March, with a. cargo of 62,000 feet of timber, and was reported sheltering in the Bay of Fires, on Saturday morning. She apparently resumed her voyage early that morning, as at 10.30 a.m. the same day a telegram reporting the disaster was re ceived at the office of the Hobart Marine Board, It stated that that the vessel struck when, passing inside the Edd...
CHINESE STOWAWAYS. FOUR IN A TANK. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 6 April 1910
CHINESE STOWAWAYS. ' FOUR IN A TANK. With respect to the Chinese- ' stowaways' discovered' at Hedland ; on the steamer Minderoo recently ' the search at Singapore was. re-, sultless. Between Broome and Hedland the white officers made a second SBarch, and noted that the lid of the fore part of a tank had been moved. They, found a bucket of water, and another with boiled rice in it.' The ' air was so foul that a light. would not burn in the tank. The chief officer in searching ,was over cpme with the foul air. He saw the Chinese, but had to he ^ : assisted out. In response to a ' challenge, four Chinese crept out of the tank. . .The^ declined to . say how they got there. . They ' seemed not' to have suffered through the vitiated atmosphere. The Chinese, who seemed, of _a high class, were deported in the ' Gorgon, then at Hedland, bound for Sineanore. «.

FEDERAL ELEC TIONS. ADDRESSES BY RETIR ING SENATORS. At Franklin Town Hall. ? - i A Sympathetic Meeting. The .three retiring Senators Messrs H. Dobson, E. Mulcahy, and James Macfarlane — ad dressed a good assemblage oi electors at the Franklin Town Hall on Saturday evening last. Mr N. B. Barnett, the 'President of the Franklin Branch of the Tasmanian Liberal League, oc cupied the chair. Senator Macfarlane first ad dressed the meeting. 'He first spoke of the progress of the Huon, stating he' could remem ber that 30 or 40 years ago the district was in rather a-bad way. A good many gates were off their hinges, and many windows were broken. But when his ] anil himself inaugurated the shipment of fruit to England 26 years ago things seemed to brighten. It was gradually dis covered that there was a very good -market there for Tasmanian fruit, and he hoped the growers who took advantage of it had i done well. Passing on he spoke of the manner in which the Labor Party had been, and were sti...
Huon River's Treachery. Steamer Huan on a Snag. Re-Floated at Midnight. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 6 April 1910
Huon River's ,. Treachery. Steamer Huon on a Shag. Re- Floated at Midnight. Further evidence of the reasonableness of the recent agitation for something to ba done to improve - the Huon waterway was provided at'., Huonville on Monday evening. The steamer Huori had made the usual tripJdown from 'Hobart, and having landed passenger and cargo at Franklin proceeded on her way to Huon ville. But she was destined not to reach her berth there until several hours after her due time. When approaching the jetty she came into collision with one of the snags with which the river abounds. She stuck fast upon the obstruction, and despite all efforts to . move her she remained there until midnight. She was then floated off and proceeded to her usual berth. So far as is known, the vessel fortu nately sustained no damage, but the incident necessarily threw all work behind, and it was only by working at her cargo throughout the night that she was able to fall into her usual running yes terday. It is ...

He .repeatedly tried to attack Noble iri the police office, and expressed sorrow he i could not have finished, him. Abbott was committed for trial.
