Huon Telephone Service. Inadequate Line Accommodation. Residents Jusrifiable Grievance. Aggravating Delays. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 9 April 1910

Huon Telephone Service. Inadequate Line Accom modation. Residents Justifiable Grievance. Aggravating Delays. The complete inadequacy of the telephone- service between the. Huon and Hobart has for a very long time past been the subject of bitter complaint among those whose* business renders it necessary for them to use it. And that there is a justifiable grievance cannot be gainsaid. Vexatious delays and interrup tions occur -with disgusting regularity, and they are often sufficient to provoke some .of the most saintly of the subscribers into- saying things that could, without the employment of any imagination, be termed ' strong,' and doubtless cause the cheeks of the lady operators toi become illuminated 'with an occasional blush. . And in the circumstances ably excused. ? ' The congestion is due mainly to the limited line accommoda tion available, and though it is felt in all those centres where the service is used to any con siderable extent it is perhaps worse at Franklin than' ...

It was thought that tho Pomona Club would avenge the defeat it received at the hands of the Geevestonites on Easter Monday, but the latter were equal to the task set them, and after a splendidly fought oonte3t, in which some very attractive play was witnessed on. both, sides, victory again rested with them by six sets to four.

Wages in Orchards. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 13 April 1910

Wages in Orchards. A DOCUMENT that should prove interesting reading to all per-, sons engaged in the fruit indusr try particularly is published in another column. It is a circular issued by one of the Labor organisations in Victoria setting out the scale of wages fixed upon for the industry named, among -others. Every day we are getting new and more vivid examples of the extent to which the deplor able ignorance and consummate arrogance of the Labor Party threatens to carry it, and this is the latest. One of their most cherished delusions is that the panacea for all social evils is the automatic regulation of wages and hours of. work; and their most recent move is to apply -the reme.dy to all rural industries, including, of course, fruitgrow ing. In this, as in innumerable other cases, complete ignorance of the industry with which it is proposed to deal is revealed, but this new seems to trouble tne party in question. The employer, who in the present gas.a is the orehardist, is not ...
