Correspondence A PINE TREE. to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 15 February 1934

Correspondence ♦ — A PINE TREE. To the Editor. Sir,— How quickly we forget! Al though at the moment of enthusiasm we make all kinds of promises that deeds will not be forgotten. After the South African war a row of pines and a flagstaff were erected at Franklin in memory of those who had paid the supreme sacrifice. The flagstaff, and all but one of the trees have long since gone, but one tree remains as a remmaer to inose oi us who still remember the reason why it was planted. Notwithstand ing the fact that there is nearly half a mile of vacant land along the river side of the road at Eranklin, those associated with the installation of a fire brigade for the township have decided upon the spot ?where the lone pine stands, and that it is the only place where the building for the housing of the gear can be erected. Not only have these people forgotten the symbolic reference of this tree, but they must have a destructive policy, because, as previously stated, there is an abundance of s...

NEW ZEALAND TOUR CANCELLED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 15 February 1934

NEW ZEALAND TOUR CAN CELLED. All lovers of the game will re gret that the proposed tour of Aus tralian cricketers to tour New Zea land has been cancelled, and our Tasmaniaii' champion (C. L. Bad cock) will not have the chance of further proving his ability with the bat. The New Zealand Cricket Council is responsible for the can cellation, fearing a loss on the tour. Having already budgeted for a loss of £500, the withdrawal of five of the more experienced players from the Australian team has made them nervous of the venture from a finan cial standpoint. No one can quibble at their action, but it is unfortunate for those players who had already made their business arrangements that the cancellation should come on the eve of their intended departure. Everyone's sympathy must go out to Badcock, wbo, is is rumored, will play in South Australia next sea son. The writer remembers the day when South Australia had the great champions (Giffen, Lyons, A. H. Jarvis, E. Jones, etc.^ Is that day...

FIRE REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 15 February 1934

FIRE REFLECTIONS. The sympathy of the whole island goes out towards all who have suf fered loss caused by the devastating fires that swept through many parts of the State last week. In the Huon and Derwent Valley districts the damage was specially heavy. The loss has not only been in houses, or chards, and valuable timber, but tne worth of years of labor has been der stroyed in a few hours— to say nothing, of the mental strain on those whose lives were endangered. Fire is a good servant, but a bad master. That is easily understood. It is a good servant when it is used to serve our commercial .enterprise; but it is a bad masten when it be comes uncontrolled and a devouring element, consuming everything that lay in its path. Each year during the dry season there is always the -possibility ? of danger. The commencement of some fires is a mystery — no ac countable reason can be given, but many are caused through careless ness. Scrub burning is necessary to prepare land for cultivation, ...

Bush Fires VULCAN IN A RAGE. After thirty-six years history has repeated itself, though not so disas-' trously. On- February 8, 1898, the most devastating fires occurred that'- the Huon had experienced within their, living memory — causing loss of many lives. On Thursday last (February 8th) the Huon was again swept by fire. .; It is- an- exper-ierice' that will be remembered. Hot driving winds, dense smoke — so dense f-.haf. at. times it appeared like a total eclipse of the sun. One could not see, but only wonder what was taking place. Meanwhile the fire, carried by a high wind, ' and assisted by the dry grass and foliage occasioned by a long dry spell, wrought havoc to homes arid orchards, and destroying bushland and valuable timber. -In some, parts of -the' 'district much ' damage' was done to orchards by the wind, caus ing the fruit to fall. ; The extent of the damage has not yet been deter min'ed, but it will be considerable. The cool change came as a welcome relief, and althoug...
