  • 13 Jul 1932, BEACONSFIELD UPPER -Mr K. Hudson, who has been running the mail between Beaconsfield railway station and Beaconsfield Upper, has disposed of his business to Mr H. Pringle.9
  • 27 Mar 1935, STATIONS MAY BE CLOSED. RAILWAYS AND MOTORS GIPPSLAND LICENCES DEFEREED
    Transport Board's Inquiries
    Appearing for the Railways Department to oppose applications for licences for motor goods vehicles operating from Beaconsfield Upper, Bunyip, and Cora Lynn, in Gippsland, Mr. Burt Kelly intimated to the Transport Regulation Board yesterday that in view of competition by motor transport the department might be forced to close many stations. The chairman of the board (Mr. P. D. Phillips), who, with Mr. W. H. Kendall and Mr. J. Jeffrey, heard the cases, said that before giving its decisions the board might visit the districts in question.
    Mr. Hector Pringle, of Beaconsfield Upper, applied for a licence for one vehicle for the carriage of orchard materials and other goods from Beaconsfield Upper to Melbourne and from Melbourne to Beaconsfield Upper and district. He said that he carried to Melbourne once a week. His rate was £1 a ton. Last year he carried 15,000 cases of fruit to cool stores and to the railhead.
    To Mr. Kelly.-The primary producer wants us to run to Melbourne.
    Mr. Kelly.-You carry more fruit to the station than to Melbourne?
    Witness.-Yes.

    Talk of Pilfering
    Mr. John Nathan, storekeeper, of Beaconsfield Upper, supporting Mr. Pringle's application, said that by motor transport the goods could be brought in one handling from warehouse to store. Railway transport involved four handlings.

    To Mr. Kelly.-We got our groceries in cardboard containers.
    The Chairman.-Why could they not come in cardboard containers by the railway?
    Mr. Nathan.-I could not say without hurting Mr. Kelly's feelings; but they might be pilfered.
    When they came by rail was there any pilfering?-Very little; they were cased up.
    Mr. Kelly quoted figures to show that the railway rates were substantially lower than those of the road operator. He suggested that the district could be served by the railways in conjunction with local carriers.

    Economics of Short Hauls
    The Chairman.-With regard to these close-in goods hauls, there might be something said for leaving them for a while and accumulating more evidence. It is a question whether the radius fixed by the Legislature (25 miles) should be an unvarying one, or might be extended to 35 miles. There might be something said for leaving these temporary licences for a time until we know more about the economics of short hauls.
    Mr. Claude Alfred Harris, of Upper Beaconsfield, applied for a licence to operate from Beaconsfield Upper to the city and return, He said that he operated four days a week, and sometimes five, from Upper Beaconsfield, and sometimes he served Berwick en route. He took primary produce to Melbourne, and he carried back "every conceivable thing that was made." He carried liquor to three hotels.

    ...
    Decisions in all the other cases were deferred, the chairman saying that the board might travel over the country inquestion. Mr. H. Witty appeared for all the applicants.10

Land-Note*27 Apr 1886 GEM--M: Leigh Hill, Frankston April 27th 1886. Mr Gaunson. Dear Sir, Yours of the 22nd to hand. Thank you for interesting yourself on Sandersons account and I do hope you will succeed in getting Sandersons application for land at Gembrook, as it would be very hard for him not to get it. I know the man to be deserving and works very hard. He has never selected before, has been in the colony 20 years and has saved upwards £300. He was about to leave on a trip to (?)land and I induced him to take up land instead of spending his money going away, and gave him the necessary information re the selecting as I have done [for] scores of other persons. Beyond this I have no personal interest in this land. The man has worked for me on and off 15 years and has also been in Mr Akehurst P.M. employ who gave him an excellent character. I enclose Sandersons statement. He brought it over today but it is not testified before a justice, he did not understand that part of your letter. So I am keeping him here at Frankston to do up my garden for a few days in case he may be wanted. I would not take his declaration as it might appear that I was more interested than I have said, but I believe the enclosed statement is true in every particular.
I thank you again on behalf of Sanderson and trust he may have speedy possession.
Your very truly, Charles Souter.13

  • 4 Jul 1873, LICENSES TO TRANSFER, ETC., MINING LEASES.
    The following is a List of Licenses, under the hand and seal of His Excellency the Governor, empowering the holders of mining leases to transfer or otherwise part with their interests in their respective leases as hereunder set forth, which have been issued on or since the 31st May 1873. The last list of such licenses was published in the Government Gazette of the 6th June 1873, p.1013:—

  • 3 May 1882, There is jealousy brooding over the coal monopoly at Western Port. A prospector in South Gipptland has "struck oil" in real earnest—or rather "struck coal," and all he wants is the cash necessary to register and secure his land. He has sought an interview with Messrs. Charles Souter and Robert Bain, of Berwick, who have had experience in "opening up coalfields" in Gippsland before, with the view of setting the good thing moving. If there is really anything in it these gentlemen are the parties to find it out. They "found it out" last time—found all the prospects of a payable ooalfield, with the exception of one element (the coal itself). On this occasion the only drawback to positive success is the delicacy shown by parties interested in forking up the preliminary expenses. This is the only bar on the road to a coal fortune—a Berwick Eldorado, or the Big Coal Bonanza.40

  • 5 Nov 1891, PRESENTATION TO EX-COUN CILLOR SOUTER, J. P. On Saturday evening last a number of the most representative gentlemen of the town of Frankston, assembled in Mr M. Young's Pier Hotel, for the purpose of presenting a handsome illuminated address from the residents, te Mr Souter, prior to his leaving the district. Cr O'Grady was voted to the chair who, in making the presentation, said that he was proud of the honor conferred upon him and to have the opportunity of presenting Mr Souter with the handsome illuminated address, as a slight token of the respect and esteem in which he was held by his fellow townsmen, and he could assure him that although his stay in the district was short, that he had won the regard of all classes. As a public man and councillor, he had discharged his duties conscientiously, and had been instrumental in assisting to obtain many improvemnents to the town ships of Frankston that were of great benefit to the residents, and it could be truly said, that he lost no opportunity of advancing the good of the people with whom his lot had been cast. He (Mr Souter) had also taken great interest in the local Mechanics' Institute and the church. With reference to the latter he might point out that Mr Souter was one who had assisted to make improvements to the Church of England building and fitting, and although there had been opposition to the movement, some declaring the under taking was impracticable, yet the work had been done, and the church was an ornament to the district and an evidence of valuable assistance rendered by him. He had also been a strong supporter of athletic pursuits, and had rendered valuable assistance to the cricket and football clubs. In passing he might also refer to Mr Souter's connection with the Frankston Masonic Lodge, of which he had been Worshipful Master for the current year and had come out tip top. In the cause of charity also, both Mr and Mrs Souter had ever been to the front, and they had always been willing to render assistance where it had been required. The neighborhod felt sorry to lose him, for he was leaving a place vacant both in public and private life that it would be hard to fill and he might say that a motto of Desreali's was ap plicable to Mr Souter "Constancy of purpose is the secret of success." On behalf of the residients he had great pleasure in presenting him with the following address which contained his crest, his monogram, was surrounded by all the Australian flowers and had a representation of the home where he had entertained many of them so well.
    The following is the address :— " To Charles Souter Esq J.P. Dear Sir, We the undersigned, on behalf of your numerous friends and well wishers, desire to express hearty admiration of your worth as a citizen and our appreciation of the ability you have shown, while acting as our repre sentative in the Mornington Shire Council, during which time you have gained for yourself the respect, goodwill, and lasting friendship of all those who have the pleasure of coming in contact with you. We deem it our simple duty to say, that you have always proved yourself worthy of the fullest public confidence, that your business relations were always characterised by tact, ability and energy, and that your unimpeachable integrity and manliness of purpose have secured for you our esteem and lasting good wishes. We beg your acceptance of this address as a slight token of regard, a regard shared in by many others who are deprived of the pleasure of taking part in this testimonial, and we trust that the sphere of life you are now entering upon will find a field of use fulness for your business talents, and that your future career may be a prosperous one. We beg to remain, Dear Sir, Very faithfully yours." Here followed the signatures of the councillors for the riding, and the leading townsmen. Mr O'Grady con cluded by wishing Mr Souter long life, and hoped when far away from Franks ton, that this address would remind him of the many friends he had left behind him. (Applause).
    Mr Souter in reply, said: Mr O'Grady and friends, the matter of tonight's meeting had taken him very much by surprise. He had been told that he was to meet some of his friends and drink a glass of wine with them, but he had no idea that matters were to take the turn they had, otherwise they would have frightened him, and his feeling would have been to have gone away. He accepted the address with a great deal of pleasure, and he could assure them he did not require such a momento to remind him of the many kindnesses he had already received at the hands of the Frankston people. During his recent afflication, both himself and wife had received many kindnesses from the people of the district. In one sense, he might say that affliction had done him good, for he had then felt that he had the respect and esteem of his fellow townsfolk, and to have gained this was one of the laurels that any man might be proud to wear. The chairman had referred to his work as a public man, he could assure them all that he had tried to do his duty and had done no more, and he was proud to find that he had given satisfaction to his constituents. He was sorry that he was leaving the district but though leaving he was not severing his connection with them, for he had still a great stake here. They were all aware that for some time the fickle dame whom they were all desirous of wooing had not dealt too kindly with him. But such a presentation as he now received with the good wishes ex pressed, he looked upon as a good omen for the future. He could not say all he desired, but he thanked them heartily for the very handsome address (Applause).
    Cr Fox said he had known Mr Souter for a long time and had found great pleasure in being associated with him. There was no doubt that like many others, Mr Souter had found that in contact with the world, that a man received more kicks than half-pence, and it was a pleasing thing to know that he had their sympathy. If he again took a public position in his new sphere he trusted the rememberance of to-night would stimulate him again to do his best.
    Cr Box said he could quite endorse all that had been said, and if it had not been for the respect he felt for Mr Souter, he would not have been present with them. He did not altogether agree with all that had been said by the previous speaker, about a public man receiving more kicks than half-pence. His experience was, that if a man did his duty fearlessly, that he was always supported. He had known Mr Souter at the council table and felt pleasure at working with him, and although he had opposed him as president for the Shire, he could assure all that he was proud that Mr Souter had been elected to the position.
    Ex-Councillor Renouf also spoke in flattering terms, stating that although Mr Souter's stay in the district was short, he had always shown that he had the welfare of the district at heart. Votes of thanks to the secretary and treasurer, Mr. Blythe, and the chairman brought the proceedings to a close.42
  • 23 May 1894, An application was made to Mr Justice a’Beckett in Chamber to-day that the action brought by the Land Credit Bank of Australia against Charles Souter and Henry Beeston be tried by a jury. The claim was for £3247 as advances by way of overdraft, during the time that G. N. Taylor was manager of the bank. The application was opposed, and his Honor decided that it was not a case for a jury, and dismissed the application with costs.43
  • 18 Jul 1895, THE DEATH OF MR. CHARLES SOUTER, J.P. A RETROSPECTION. [By Herbert Whitley].
    The announcement of the death of Mr. Charles Souter brings back the thought—Bless me, what a staunch shadow he was! How his spirit fought! How the energy and will of his mental temperament thrust back the weakness and feebleness of his bodily frame! He was altogether too frail to war with the grosser and more evil natures of those who formed his environment, and, I may add, too upright and generous hearted to cope with the scoundrelism that left him and his fortune a wreck. I confess he was one of my favourites. I am always impressed with earnestness. Peace to him, then; but haply little peace to those to whom he has gone; for surely if a man's mental temperament may be regarded as a reflex of his soul, then no peace will be sacred from stubborn argument and same prejudices into which the spirit of Charles Souter thrusts itself. I reverently drop a wattle blossom on his grave, and, in conclusion, would add the lines of one of the stanzas of that strangely unfortunate man, Edgar Allen Poe, as representing my tribute to the worth of one whom I respected in life, and whose memory I revere, cherish and honor in death.
    "No dirge will I upraise,
    But waft his spirit on its flight with a
    peon of old days.
    Let no bell toll, lest his pure soul, amid
    its hallowed mirth,
    Should catch the note as it doth float up
    from the dammed earth."
    *To friends above, from friends below,
    the indignant ghost is ruin.
    From earth into a high estate, far up
    within the heaven.
    From grief and groan to a golden throne
    beside the King of Heaven."44

  • 31 Jan 1939, BLAZE NEAR BERWICK. Homes in Danger.
    BERWICK, Monday. - A week-end home was destroyed and several other properties were endangered by a fire, which broke out shortly after 2 p.m. today near the reservoir, between Beaconsfield and Beaconsfield Upper.
    The fire ran up Walker's Gully toward Upper Beaconsfield. When the wind changed from the north to the west it headed toward Tumuc Valley and valuable orcharding districts. A change to the south about 7 pm helped to quell the intensity of the fire and aided the fighters in bringing it under control.
    The weekend home of Miss D. Rogers and its contents were destroyed, and a shed and a garage on the property of Mr. J. Ballantyne, and a shed on Mr. Ken Hudson's property were also destroyed.
    Strenuous efforts on the part of the fire-fighters saved the homes of Mr. Ballantyne, Dr. Day, Miss O. Bennie, and Mr. K. Hudson. Other houses which were in danger were those of Judge Bevan (the hedge of which caught fire), Mr. V. a'Beckett, Mrs. Renfrey, Mr. Hudson, sen., and Mr. C. R. Walker. Mr. Walker was delivering a lecture in Berwick in aid of the bush-fire appeal when he was called to his home.
    At 10.30 pm the fire was still burning in the timber country east of Beaconsfield Upper, but it is believed that no houses are in immediate danger. The fire was fought by approximately 300 volunteers from Beaconsfield, Upper Beaconsfield, Berwick, Dandenong, and surrounding districts.
    A change of wind to the north or east tomorrow would again make the situation very serious.17

Education*bt 1921 - 1923 From the eulogy of Kenneth Boulton HUDSON (1908-1989): Ken was an only child and had his early education at Mentone, until his parents moved to Upper Beaconsfield in 1921 to manage a boarding house known as “Kia Ora”.
At that time he was 13. He had a further two years of schooling at the Rev. Jimmy Wilson’s School at Casely, in Salisbury road. There were 8 other students, (Harry Burton and Warwick Griffin were two). He really enjoyed those two years.
At the age of 15 his schooling finished due to the closure of the school.

Village Bell*Apr 1989The article reads: FUEL REDUCTION BURNING
The article in the last issue of the "Village Bell" by J. Boura regarding the benefits of fuel reduction burning has drawn the following responses:
From Ken Hudson, Reed Avenue, Upper Beaconsfield: -
"It was a most refreshing change to read Mr. Jon Boura's article in your issue No.66 advocating the policy of undergrowth reduction by the "cool-burn" process.
There is no doubt from my extensive experience that regular small "cool" burns prevent a build-up of undergrowth which is so devastating to the larger trees, and animals, in a large bushfire.
In support of cool burning I would like to make some observations from my own property, noted after Ash Wednesday 1983.
For over 30 years I had been unable to burn off due to the close proximity of a neighbouring pine plantation - with the result that, in the 1983 fire, many of my native trees were badly burned, and their seeds (which need some heat to regenerate) were completely destroyed by the extreme heat generated in that fire fed by the long build-up of fuel.
The small trees were stripped of bark by the fierce fires and this has permitted wood grubs to penetrate and weaken the trees -causing many limbs to fall and will ultimately kill many of these trees.
In the only spot where there was light undergrowth, native heath has regenerated well - but previous large areas of heath have been wiped out by the Ash Wednesday heat.
Mr. Boura mentioned "greenies" in his article. Do they understand the history of our environment - including the aborigines' "fire stick farming"? Are they aware that many plants can only regenerate by the regular application of heat to the seed?
In Western Australia the Forestry Department strip-burn crown land on a five year rotation to protect the environment. The Cardinia Creek reserve at Beaconsfield, for example, needs a regular process of "cool burning" to protect the flora and fauna there (including remnants of the helmeted honey-eater colony identified there years ago) and to protect the township of Beaconsfield from the damaging effects of a hot bushfire. Let us hope that notice will be taken of Mr. Boura's article.
Fire should not be treated as a monster, but as a chemical change which needs certain conditions to survive. Material is being converted into heat, gas and ash by the fire however it is started, and it needs large volumes of oxygen to escalate.
If we remove any of the elements we either put the fire out or by having used the "cool burn" method, the fuel reduction makes a subsequent fire more controllable.
(Ken Hudson was a former member of Upper Beaconsfield Bush Fire Brigade of 12 years standing).9 
Death*12 Aug 1989 Mundaring, WA, Australia.4 
Death-Notice*16 Aug 1989HUDSON, Kenneth Boulton - passed away August 12th, 1989 in Mundaring W.A. Aged 81 years. Dearly loved husband of Dorothea (dec). Beloved father of John, Mary, Barbara, Ken, Frank (dec) and Peg. Loved father-in-law of Daphne, Ray, Dick, Jill and George. Dear grandfather of Geoff and Colleen. Heather.

HUDSON. Kenneth. Died suddenly. 10th August, 1989 in Perth.
Foundation member and former secretary of the Upper Beaconsfield Bush Fire Brigade. Deepest sympathy to his family, from the members of the Upper Beaconsfield Rural Fire Brigade.10 
Village BellOct 1989The article reads: VALE KEN HUDSON - Aged 81 years - Died 12/8/89
Ken Hudson died in W.A. shortly after arrival there to live with his daughter after finally moving from his home in Reed Ave., Upper Beaconsfield.
Ken was a well-known and respected member of this community, and had been associated with the area for nearly 70 years.
In early years he had done orchard work, run a car hire service, worked as a mechanic for Gippsland and Northern, and then branched out into car repair service at Beaconsfield. His greatest success was when he took on a tractor sales agency for Fiat and Deutz and the business grew into the State's top dealership for these two tractor companies.
Ken was an active layman with the local Anglican Church (St. John's), and was a foundation member and secretary of the Upper Beaconsfield Fire Brigade for a period of 12 years.
Although his body was tiring in his last year or so, he was strongly independent and kept a critical eye on shire and community activities - he was blessed with a remarkable memory and a mind as sharp as a razor until the day of his death.11 
Land-Note*22 Jan 1990 PAK-130 (part): Kenneth Boulton Hudson died on 12/8/89. Probate of his will has been granted to Kenneth David Hudson of 4 Willow Drive Bendigo and John Boulton Hudson of 55 Palmerston Street Berwick.12

  • 27 Oct 1931, MOTOR SERVICE AT UPPER BEACONSFIELD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ARGUS.
    Sir,—In a paragraph published on Saturday under the heading of "Upper Beaconsfield Traders," reference was made to the motor service from Beaconsfield railway station. In the first place the Railways department has granted or is prepared to grant a stand to the motor-driver not holding its contract for the conveyance of the passengers holding combined rail and motor tickets. I wish also to deny emphatically that there is or is likely to be in the near future more work that can be carried out by my service or that any person has suffered any inconvenience on delay during transit in my cars.—Yours, &c., KENNETH B. HUDSON.

  • 10 Dec 1931, PUBLIC MEETING AT BEACONSFIELD UPPER.
    A public meeting, convened by the local Traders’ Association, was held in the Hall on Monday evening. The president of the Association, Mr. W. Wintle, occupied the chair, and there was a good attendance. The chairman stated in his opening remarks that the meeting had been called for the purpose of trying to restore the daily two mail service to and from the city, which, operated some time ago. At present the service was a drawback to the progress of the district, and he illustrated this by stating that a letter posted here at 5 o’clock p.m. on Saturday was not delivered in Melbourne or suburbs until Tuesday morning. In addtion to the two mails per day, he thought that a loose mail bag should be made up and despatched on Sunday night. This would assist business people and help the district at large, and he also considered that the mail should come direct from the mail train instead of being delayed as at present on the route. A number of other speakers stressed the necessity for this service, and the secretary of the Association and Mr. Ken. Hudson reported on their correspondence and interviews with the responsible officers of the Postmaster-General’s department. The following motion, proposed by Mr D. N. McBride, and seconded by Mr. Baxter, was then carried unanimously.
    “That this meeting of resdents of Beaconsfield Upper give whole-hearted support to the Traders’ Association in their efforts to obtain a daily two mail service direct from mail train, and also that a loose bag be despatched from here on Sunday nights.”
    It was decided that a petition be prepared for submission to the P.M.G. asking that these facilities be granted and that the obtaining of signatures to this petition be left in the hands of the Association.26

  • 31 Jan 1939, BLAZE NEAR BERWICK. Homes in Danger.
    BERWICK, Monday. - A week-end home was destroyed and several other properties were endangered by a fire, which broke out shortly after 2 p.m. today near the reservoir, between Beaconsfield and Beaconsfield Upper.
    The fire ran up Walker's Gully toward Upper Beaconsfield. When the wind changed from the north to the west it headed toward Tumuc Valley and valuable orcharding districts. A change to the south about 7 pm helped to quell the intensity of the fire and aided the fighters in bringing it under control.
    The weekend home of Miss D. Rogers and its contents were destroyed, and a shed and a garage on the property of Mr. J. Ballantyne, and a shed on Mr. Ken Hudson's property were also destroyed.
    Strenuous efforts on the part of the fire-fighters saved the homes of Mr. Ballantyne, Dr. Day, Miss O. Bennie, and Mr. K. Hudson. Other houses which were in danger were those of Judge Bevan (the hedge of which caught fire), Mr. V. a'Beckett, Mrs. Renfrey, Mr. Hudson, sen., and Mr. C. R. Walker. Mr. Walker was delivering a lecture in Berwick in aid of the bush-fire appeal when he was called to his home.
    At 10.30 pm the fire was still burning in the timber country east of Beaconsfield Upper, but it is believed that no houses are in immediate danger. The fire was fought by approximately 300 volunteers from Beaconsfield, Upper Beaconsfield, Berwick, Dandenong, and surrounding districts.
    A change of wind to the north or east tomorrow would again make the situation very serious.29
  • 1 Dec 1943, Proceedings For Noble Park Ejectment Dismissed
    WHEN Roy Fenton, a Melbourne process server, acting for Mr. Crosbie, the owner of a property in Ellendale road, Noble Park, sought an ejectment order against George [sic] Hudson, the tenant, at the Dandenong Court on Monday, Mr. B. Morrissy (instructed by Mr. F. Field), successfully argued that the proceedings should not have have been brought under and Landlord and Tenants’ Act, but under the National Security Regulations. One of the effects of this was that his client had only been given 7 days’ notice to quit.
    Mr. F. A. Singleton, J.P. (chairman): Your argument is that we have no jurisdiction ?
    Mr. Morrissy: Yes. The point to be decided in that respfect is whether this is merely a house, or house and land. He submitted it was not a farm, but a house with 3 acres of land attached.
    Kenneth Bolton Hudson, the tenant, said he had rented the property since September, 1939, and the rent was paid up until last Saturday. The land had never been cleared or plowed, except for a quarter of an acre. There were about 100 trees on it.
    Upholding Mr. Morrissy’s point, the Bench dismissed the case.30

  • 13 Apr 1881, FIRE IN BOURKE-STEEET WEST.
    About 3 o clock this morning a fire broke out on the premises of Messrs. J H Walker and Son, biscuit manufacturers, Bourke street west, and was still burning when we went to press. The premises consist of a large iron building adjoining the Railway Foundry (the property of Messrs Drysdale and Fraser), which was also considerably damaged by fire. The Metropolitan brigade were quickly on the spot, and with a plentiful supply of water, got the fire under, but not before the biscuit factory had been nearly gutted.15
  • 12 Apr 1882, FATAL GUN ACCIDENT. [BY TELEGRAPH.] (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) SEYMOUR, TUESDAY. A sad and fatal gun accident occurred this morning at Worrough Station, some eight miles from here. A young man named Russel Walker, son of a Melbourne biscuit manufacturer, who was on a visit at Mr. M'Kenzie's, left the house in the company of his brother, with the intention of having a day's shooting. When about 100 yards away, the latter returned to the house for something he had forgotten, and, coming back in a few minutes, found his brother lying at the brink of a creek, with a large wound in the neck, and quite insensible. He at once ran up for Mr. M'Kenzie, but whilst he was away the poor follow died. It is supposed that as the deceased was attempting to cross the creek referred to, the gun went off, lodging the charge in his neck. An inquest was held on the remains this evening, and a verdict of accidental death returned.16
  • 2 May 1883, THE TARIFF COMMISSION. TUESDAY, MAY. 1. Present-Messrs. Mirams (chairman), Lorimer aud Messrs, M L C's, Zox, M'Intyre, Walker, and Bosisto, M L A 's, Grimwade, and D Munro.
    CONFECTIONERY AND BISCUITS
    H Burrows, of Dillon and Burrows, confectionery manufacturers, stated that they employed about 100 hands. There was a difficulty in getting workmen. Their experience was that very few people able and willing to work were out of employment. The present tarriff was exactly the thing so far as confectionery was concerned. Local competition had brought down the prices of the goods they manufactured. Mr Francis increased the confectionery duty from 1d per lb to 2d. per lb. Lemon peel was imported to a great extent in a partially prepared state, and paid 2d per lb duty. They could not get sufficient lemons here. A good deal had to be done to the imported peel before it went to the grocer. The raw ma terial cost them 6d. per pound besides the duty, and they sold it for only 9d. Some merchants imported the manufactured peel, fit for the shops. The duty on the unpre pared peel ought to be abolished. The duty on shelled almonds was 2d. per pound. That was very large. These almonds were very largely used for various purposes. They cost at home from 6d to 7d. Adelaide almonds cost about 13d. They were perfectly satisfied as to sugar. Queensland sugar was suitable for their industry. The sugar duty was about 10 per cent. If the duty was abolished the public would get the benefit, through compe tition. It was very desirable that local manufacturers should be forced to brand their goods. His industry did not suffer from the prejudice against colonial goods. As to lemon peel, only a few lemons were grown in Victoria. He never bought Victorian almonds. They were sold in the shell, and it would not pay him to buy them in that state. But there was a demand for almonds in the shell. The present duty of 2d per lb on confectionery, sweetmeats, &c., had greatly promoted the growth of the industry. A duty of 1d per pound would not be sufficient protection. He did not export lollies to any great extent. Some of the best kinds of goods were sent to Sydney. There were manufacturers in his line in Sydney. The duty there was 1½d per lb . and on sugar 5s. per cwt.
    R. Black, of Black and Spencer, confectionery manufacturers, stated that he agreed generally with Mr. Burrows. The prices of confectionery before the imposition of any duty were much higher than at present. The manufacturers met monthly, and arranged the prices. If there was no sugar duty or machinery duty he thought the confectionery duty might be reduced. He was about importing some patented machinery, on which he would have to pay £40 duty, and which could not be manufactured here. The prices of confectionery here were now 50s per cwt for boiled, and 60s for dry.
    T. Swallow, of Swallow and Ariell, biscuit manufacturers, deposed that they employed in the biscuit factory about 335 hands, of whom about 170 were lads and girls under 18 years. They could do with more employees of the right sort. The tariff had not affected his industry at all, so far as the biscuit duty was concerned. The duty on biscuits was 2d per lb. But other duties injuriously affected the industry. He was a large exporter. Before the imposition of the biacuit duty a very large proportion of the imported biscuits landed were damaged ship's stores. Now such articles were not limited. The industry had very much increased during tho last two or three years. The biscuit duty set a bad example, and caused an erroneous impression that the industry was being protected. He would like to seo the abolition of the duties on wheat and flour. On " sharps," or pollard, the duty was £2 per ton, and that article could be largely obtained in Adelaide and New Zealand if it was not for the duty. He would also like to see the duties abolished on dried fruits, peels, and almonds. Butter was another important article. He had to import a lot, and the duty was 2d per lb. The Victorian supply of butter was not ample. The machinery duties likewise affected his in dustry. Some industries got their machinery free. He would not object so much to paying duties on machinery that could be manufactured here. He exported biscuits to all the neighbouring colonies, where he could compete with English goods. The article was of a perishable character and that favoured the nearest producers. The biscuit manufacturers of Melbourne had more than once asked the Government to abolish the biscuit duty. The abolition of the duties on sugar and dried fruits, &c., would lead to a general reduction in prices of the articles he manu factured. Sharps were cheaper in New Zealand than here.
    J H Walker, biscuit manufacturer, said that he agreed with Mr Swallow. Ship bread could not be made here as cheaply as in Sydney, because of the higher price of sharps here. If sharps were admitted duty free, we could compete with the other colonies.
    T B Guest, biscuit manufacturer, stated that he employed about 90 hands. He did a very little export trade. As to the machinery duties, they were levied on articles that could not be manufactured here, partly because it was patented. Where a firm made a large number of any particular machines they could of course sell much cheaper than when one of such machines only was made by a firm.
    John Conlon, representative of the Opera tive Bakers' Society, said be had been in the trade 33 years, and in the colony 15 years. The society he represented contained over 300 members. He was deputed to complain of the treatment of journeyman bakers as to wages and hours by their employers. The tariff did not affect the journeymen.
    The CHAIRMAN-I think you should go before the Shops Commission.
    F Kenner operative baker, said that he would like to see English biscuits copied here as to shape and material. If the biscuit duty were removed, there would be more work for operative biscuit millers. Colonial biscuits could compete with the imported article.17
  • 29 Mar 1887, POISONOUS COLOURING ON BISCUITS. A HEAVY FINE IMPOSED.
    At the District Court yesterday Messrs J H Walker and C A Walker were prosecuted under the 130th section of the Health Act " for that on the 12th inst they wilfully did permit a person in their employment to colour a certain sort of food, to wit, biscuits, with a green poisonous pigment so as to render them as an article of food injurious to health, with intent that the same might be sold. There was a second summons, charging the defendants with committing the offence themselves. The defendants are bis cuit manufacturers, carrying on business under the style of H J Walker and Co, in Bourke street west.
    Inspector Pewtress, who conducted the prosecution, said that he understood that the defendants intended to plead guilty, in which case he would not press for a heavy penalty.
    Mr Gillott, for the defendants, said that they had no intention to plead guilty.
    Senior constable M'Hugh deposed that on the 12th inst, acting under instructions from the president of the Central Board of Health, he went to the manufactory of the defen dants and saw Mr A C Walker, and told him that he had come to purchase two or three tins of biscuits. They went to an upper floor, and from a stack of tins similar to the one produced witness selected three tins for which he paid £1. The tin produced was one of the three, another was left with Mr Walker and the third witness took to Mr Blackett the act ing Government analyst. Witness and Mr Walker had some conversation, and Mr Walker told him that he expected the police as he had seen a reference to the matter in the newspapers. He said that one of his employés had used a wrong kind of colouring matter, but the quantity to each biscuit was so small that no apprehension was felt. In the tin produced there was no green biscuit but there was a green one in the tin handed to Mr Blackett. Afterwards, under instructions from the Central Board of Health, a number of tins were seized in various parts of the city, 32 tins in all, and 30 biscuits were found bearing the green colouring matter. All the tins seized bore the label of J H Walker and Sons.
    Cuthbert Robert Blackett acting Government analyst, deposed that he analysed the green coloured biscuits which he received in the tin from Senior-constable M'Hugh, and found that they were coloured with arsenite of copper. This was in the green matter only. The amount of arsenite of copper on each biscuit was .07 of a grain.
    In answer to Mr Panton, the witness stated that one biscuit of the kind would not be injurious to the health of a grown person. It might have serious results in the case of a very young child.
    In answer to Mr Gillott, witness stated that it was a question for medical men to decide how far .07 of a grain of arsenite of copper would be injurious to a child.
    Mr Panton -Is arsenite of copper a poison.
    Witness -It is one of the most deadly poisons.
    To Mr Gillott -He had not known a case of fatal poisoning from an amount of arsenite of copper such as was found on one of the biscuits but he had read of such cases, and there were also the instances of the children taken to the Melbourne Hospital, whose vomit had been sent to witness.
    To Inspector Pewtress-He received a biscuit from the Melbourne Hospital similar to the one produced.
    This was the case for the prosecution.
    Mr Gillott said there was no evidence to support the charge that the defendants had used the colouring matter, and with regard to the charge that they had permitted it to be used, he would show that it had been used not only without their consent, but without their knowledge.
    J H Walker, one of the defendants, the senior member of the firm deposed that he had carried on the business for many years, and had always used vegetable colouring matter. When he heard that another colour ing was being used he was very much surprised. As soon as he found out what had been done he took measures to destroy all the biscuits of that kind which had been manufactured. An experiment was made by one of the men, who thought the colour was a brighter green.
    Mr Panton -What supervision do you exercise over the manufactory?
    Mr Walker-It was an employé named Randall who gave out the colours, which were always purchased from the best houses. Randall gave the colouring matter out to the 20 or 30 girls employed in the factory. When more colouring matter was required it was his duty to notify the fact at the office.
    A C Walker, the other defendant, gave similar evidence.
    Jas Randall, in the employ of the defendants, deposed that he saw the green colour ing matter being used in an adjoining jam factory for colouring wax, and as it was a brighter colour he took some for colouring the biscuits. The men in the jam factory told him the colour was harmless. He tested it with his tongue in the form of powder, and it did not hurt him.
    Mr Panton said that the case disclosed great carelessness with respect to the manu facture of an article of food. The Bench were surprised that a gentleman like Mr Walker should acknowledge his ignorance of what materials were used in his own manu factory. Fortunately, at present people were so well educated that even children who attended the state schools knew that green colouring was injurious to health. It was proved that arsenite of copper which was a most injurious substance, had been used, and his brother magistrates thought with him that an example should be made which would show that no such carelessness would be tolerated. The workman appeared to have taken this colouring matter and used it without satisfying himself in any manner as to its chemical constituents.
    The defendants were fined £20, with £3 3s costs.
    Mr Gillott stated that the defendants would appeal.18
  • 24 Mar 1888, The business of Messrs. J H Walker and Son, biscuit manufacturers, is about to be floated into a company.19
  • 15 Aug 1888, The land fever is still raging, but not quite so furiously as a few weeks ago. Among the list of sales I may mention those of the Aurisch Bros. and Mr. Savage. Mr. Walker, the biscuit manufacturer, was the purchaser of the Messrs. Aurisch's land, but I have not heard who has bought the other. One thing I do know is that a good price was paid for both lots, something like £22 per acre.4

  • 31 Dec 1902, WALKER—HAWES.—[Golden Wedding.]—On the 28th December, 1852, at St James' Church, Melbourne, by the Venable Dean Macartney, Joseph Henry, eldest son of Captain Joseph Walker, East India Company, to Charlotte, daughter of James Hawes, of London.23
  • 7 Sep 1904, Upper Beaconsfield. The large paddock known as "Walkers" has just changed hands, Mr Harkins, of South Melbourne, being the purchaser. He has already made a start to improve it, having let a contract for grubbing to Messrs Shorthouse and Cameron, and the other day McLellan Bros' team of horses brought a house up from Melbourne, and deposited it on its new site. I have been informed that it is Mr Harkins intention to clear the greater portion of the six hundred and forty acres which the paddock contains.24
  • 24 May 1916, Mr. Joseph Henry Walker, whose death occurred on Sunday, was one of the pioneers of Victoria, In making the overland journey from Adelaide to Bendigo in 1851 he had many exciting experiences. With a small party he travelled part of the way in a dray, drawn by two horses. Both the horses died on the journey, the latter portion of which had to be undertaken on foot.
    At times it seemed as if the party would not reach its destination. The provisions were almost exhausted on occasions, and for 45 miles no water was obtainable in travelling over the desert. Bendigo was reached 10 weeks after leaving Adelaide. Mr. Walker was occupied as a builder and contractor in Bendigo before going to Fitzroy, where he was engaged as a flour miller. Subsequently he was in business in West Melbourne as a biscuit-maker. Twenty years ago he went to Gembrook, where he lived in retirement, and latterly he resided at Heidelberg. Mr. Walker, who was 89 years of age, was the eldest son of Captain Walker, of the East India Company's service.25

  • 26 Sep 1918, BEACONSFIELD UPPER. On Saturday evening a grand Scotch concert and revue was given in the Hall, by the Caledonian Society of Melbourne. Mr Peters, who is a lively member of the Society, took the responsibility of arranging the concert for the laudable object of augmenting the Red Cross Funds. The attendance was good and the event was a success. Mr Duncan McLean acted as secretary. Mr Peters unfortunately was unable to be present through pressing business, but Mr Leckie, the secretary of the Society, together with his good lady, and several members, were present. The dancing and general efficiency of the young lads and lassies forming the Company, was excellent. Mr W. J. Harry Smith, J.P., presided.35

  • 17 Apr 1880, LIABILITY OF HUSBANDS. IMPORTANT TO TRADESPEOPLE.
    THE judgment delivered last Saturday in the District Court by his honor Judge Dowling, is of great importance to tradespeople. The point at dispute was whether a husband is liable for his wife's debts after separating from her, and not having given notice of the fact to tradesmen who formerly trusted her with goods in her husband's name. The plaintiffs were George Peapes and William Shaw, carrying on business under the style of Peapes and Shaw, drapers, in George-street, who sued John Bobardt, a draughtsman employed in the Survey Department, to recover £22 18s 5d, for goods sold and delivered.
    The plaintiffs case was that in August, 1878, the defendant called at plaintiff's establishment, accompanied by his wife, and introduced Mrs Bobardt to Mr Peapes as his wife, and authorised Mr Peapes to supply her with any goods she might order, and to ren der him the account, which he would pay. Credit was accordingly given to Mrs Bobart, and she continued to order goods up to October, 1879. The goods thus supplied to Mrs. Bobardt were included in the defen dant's accounts, which were rendered to him in the ordinary course of trade. Between September, 1878, and December, 1879, three accounts were rendered to the defendant. The first account amounted to £33 19s 6d, of which sum £22 3s 6d was for goods supplied to Mrs. Bobardt. The second account amounted to £6 13s, of which £6 0s 6d was for goods supplied to Mrs. Bobardt. The third account amounted to £32 1s 11d, of which £22 18s 0d was for goods supplied to Mrs. Bobardt. The first two accounts were paid by the defendant. The third account was the one for which the plaintiffs now sued. The account was posted to defendant on November 31, 1879, and on the following day the defendant called at plaintiffs shop, and, producing the account, pointed out to Mr. Peapes the articles which he had purchased himself, and requesting Mr Peapes to make out an account separately, and to render his wife's account to her. The defendant was furnished with a separate account amounting to £9 3s 6d, which he paid, and a bill for the remaining items was posted to Mrs Bobardt. On December 3 plaintiffs received a letter from Mrs Annie Bobardt, stating that she had "sent to Mr Bobardt, at Arnott House, Wynyard-square, as he pays all my debts." On the 4th December, 1879, plaintiffs received a letter from the defendant, saying, "I herewith give you notice that I shall not be responsible for any debts contracted by any one in my name without my written authority. "This was the first intimation the plaintiff's received of the defendant's cancellation of the express authority given by him to Mr. Peapes. The defence was that the defendant separated from his wife before the third account had been rendered to him.
    His Honor delivered judgment as follows :-The defendant some time since took his wife to the plaintiff's shop and introduced her as his wife, saying that they might trust her with such things as she might require from time to time. Acting upon that authority, the plaintiffs from time to time supplied articles of wearing apparel to her, accounts for which, were sent in and duly discharged, by the defendant without protest. Here, therefore, there was evidence of an express, as well as an implied authority. The defendant and wife, it would appear, did not live happily together, and eventually separated by mutual consent,—he making her an allowance, which I find to be sufficient. Within two or three days of the separation, the wife wrongfully went to the plaintiffs' shop and bought several articles of the same kind as she had bought before, and her husband was debited with them. Plaintiffs proved that they had no notice not to further trust the wife, and that they had no knowledge that defendant was living separate from her. The plaintiffs sent in their accouut to the defendant, in which were charged the things the wife bought, as well as his own. The defendant then went to the plaintiffs' shop and asked for his own items in a dis- tinct accouut, which was furnished him ; and there- upon he paid it, disputing that he was liable, for the goods his wife had bought since they parted. He then for the first time informed the plaintiffs that he and his wife were living apart.' He offered to pay half the amount of his wife's account. Plaintiffs refused, and hence this action. Mr. Pilcher, for the plaintiffs, contended, that as the defendant had held out his wife as a person, who could be credited on his behalf, and had more than once paid her debts, he could not escape paying the debt now sued upon, unless he had given the plaintiffs express notice of the withdrawal of the authority. Mr. Want, on the other hand, relying upon several authorities, argued that the defendant was not bound, to give notice of the altered state of the circumstances; and that as the wife was living away, with a sufficient income, the plaintiffs dealt with her at their own risk, and could not charge, the husband. If the wife had only dealt with the plaintiffs for the first time after separation it is quite clear upon the cases that the verdict ought to be for the defendant, because then there would have been no express authority, and the wife under the circumstances could not have pledged her husband's credit. After the trial was over the report of the case of Drew v. Dunn, 4 L. R. 2 b., d. 661, was shown me. That case was argued before the Court of Appeal, and therefore entitled to great weight. The facts shortly were-the defendant had been present when some of the articles were furnished by the plaintiff, and in anticipation of becoming insane, he handed over the whole of his property to his wife. He became worse and was confined in a lunatic asylum, where he remained for some time. During this time his wife continued to pledge his credit for necessaries, the plaintiff being ignorant of the madness of the defendant, and did not know that his income had been paid to her. Ultimately he became well, and then repudiated the debt, whereupon he was sued, and the plaintiff succeeded.
    In the judgment of Brett, L. J; are the following expressions:-"In this case the wife was held out as agent, and the plaintiff, acted upon the defendant's representation as to her authority, without notice that it had been withdrawn. The defendant cannot escape from the consequence of the representation ; he cannot withdraw the agent's authority as to third persons without giving them notice of the withdrawal. The principal is bound, although he retracts the agent's authority, if he has not given notice, and the latter wrongfully enters into a contract upon his behalf. . . . The defendant may be an innocent sufferer by her conduct, but the plaintiff, who dealt with her bona-fide, is also innocent ; and, where one or two persons, both innocent, must suffer by the wrongful act of a third person; that person making the representation which, as between the two, was the original cause of the mischief, must be the sufferer, and must bear the loss. Here it does not lie in the defendant's mouth to say that the plaintiff, shall be the sufferer. All the other judges concurred in deciding that the plaintiff ought to succeed." That decision, which only confirms many previous decisions, seems to me to be conclusive of the present case, and that I have no other alternative but to follow it, and decide that the plaintiffs ought to succeed. I, therefore, find for the plaintiffs, damages £22 18s 5d.6

  • 9 Oct 1886, At the Melbourne District Court on the 27th ult., Henry G. Bobardt, an importer of watch materials, was fined £100 for smuggling 317 gold and silver watches valued at £2,000. As the watches have been confiscated the Customs authorities for the imposition of the minimum penalty. It was stated that for sometime past complaints had been made to the authorities of smuggled watches being sold in Melbourne considerably under the market price, to the manifest injury of the trade. On the 16h ult. a man named Foley, acting under instructions, purchased from Bobardt for £7 10s a gold watch worth more than that price; and the matter being reported, an official visit to his premises revealed the fact that he had 317 valuable watches, on which, it is alleged, no duty had been paid. Bobardt said he purchased the goods for cash from one James Mayor, who had gone to England. As he could not produce a single invoice, the whole of the stock was seized by the Customs. These watches appeared to be of a superior kind. Some were said to have been obtained from the late Mr Feldheim.12
