Wellington, January 7 1907 Social Notes
Everyone is too limp to plan entertainments and what amusements there are are only public ones. The Gothic arrived on New Year's Eve, and those who got their first view of New Zealand that evening must have been much impressed. A great yellow harvest moon rose over dim blue hills and the harbor was a sheet of silver, with long golden reflections. The sky was cloudless, and the air was still, and the city with its clustered glow worm lights must have looked beautiful from the big ship's deck. By it arrived, with her uncle Mr Watson, a London solicitor, Miss MASON (Marguerite Maxwell Mason), whose marriage to her cousin Mr Norman DALSTON (Norman Howard Maxwell Dalston), of the New Zealand Times, take place this week. Another passenger was Miss Whitlaw, sister of Mrs J. D. Gray of Wellington, who returned to Auckland, her native city, as Lady Principal of a new college there. Miss Whitlaw studied at Girton, and was a distinguished teacher at Wycombe Abbey College.

NOTES re the arrival of the GOTHIC
* It is understood that Captain W. Finch, formerly of the Atlantic trade, is now in command of the Shaw Savill steamer Gothic

* A number of improvements have been effected in the Shaw Savill steamer Gothic, which arrived from London on Monday evening on her first trip since the disastrous fire which damaged the vessel on her last voyage from New Zealand. The alterations in the passenger accommodation, which were described some time ago, have made a considerable difference in the internal arrangements of the steamer which should now prove more attractive than ever to the travelling public. The vessel brings a total of 301 passengers for New Zealand, 244 being in the third class.

* A third-class passenger by the Gothic from England gave birth to twin daughters during the voyage to Wellington.

* During the voyage a third-class passenger named D. Rodman, booked for Oamaru, died of typhoid fever on Christmas Day. The deceased had been ill for two weeks.

* When the Gothic leaves London she will carry a large party of domestic servants bound for New Zealand, There are between 30 and 40 of them drawn from various parts of the United Kingdom about half of the number being sent out under the auspices of the British Women's Emigration Society. The whole party are receiving the benefit of the reduced fares obtained under the New Zealand Government's immigration scheme - a concession which carries with it the proviso that each assisted immigrant must be approved and passed by the High Commissioner's Department before being allowed to sail. In the 12 months, from June of this year to June of next year, Mr Reeves hopes to send out 250 suitable girls. Though a few domestic servants have been going out to New Zealand a few at a time for some little while past, the present batch is by far the largest which has been despatched. It is hoped that suitable arrangements will be made by the Labour Department for meeting the party on arrival at Wellington, and safeguarding the interests of the girls in their search for employment. Considering the perennial scarcity of domestic servants, there should be no difficulty about finding suitable situations.

* Some dissatisfied Hawke's Bay housewives have been so distressed over their inability to obtain 'helps' that they got in touch with the British Women's Immigration Association and through its agency and the energy of Miss Black, some fifteen young women arrived in Wellington and went on to Hawke's Bay this morning. These girls all come to New Zealand under engagement, and belong principally to the country districts of England, Ireland and Scotland. These girls could be distinguished amongst the swarm of passengers by little knots of purple ribbon worn on the breast, the insignia of the Women's Immigration Associaiton. Altogether there were twenty-seven servant girls on board, 15 for Napier, 6 for Wellington, 2 for Greymouth and 1 each for Auckland, New Plymouth, Lyttelton and Port Chalmers.

* Of the 21 farm labourers who arrived, three are for Auckland, three for Wellington, five for New Plymouth, six for Lyttelton, two for Greymouth, one for Timaru, and one for Port Chalmers.

* A unique ornament is expected to arrive to-morrow by the Gothic in the form of a "bubble fountain" for the Exhibition. It will be worked by gas pressure, and will send up ten thousand bubbles every minute. There is only one other similar fountain in the world. The general manager arranged, through the High Commissioner, to have this one especially for the Exhibition.

* A replica of the sweated industries exhibit prepared by the Daily Mail, and which caused such a stir at Home, has been secured by the High Commissioner (Mr W. P. Reeves) for exhibition in the colony. Advices have been received by the Labour Department that the exhibit will arrive by the Gothic on 1st January. The collection will give a good idea of the great variety of articles manufactured by the sweated labour of women and children. The collection might well be labelled "From Darkest England". It comes from such depths of poverty and misery as only those who know can realise. The proposal is that the articles made by sweated and alien labour shall be exhibited at Christchurch and New Zealand-made articles of the same kind will be shown alongside for purposes of comparison. The exhibit promises to be most interesting and will doubtless attract as much attention in the colony as the original did at Home.

* FOXTON - A pipe organ for All Saints' Church, Foxton, was brought out by the Gothic. Arrangements are being made with a New Zealand expert to erect the instrument. It is hoped that the formal 'opening' may take place about the end of January or early in February.

* GISBORNE - Advice has been received that the material for the new telephone exchange, together with switchboards for the installation of a new system, has arrived in Wellington by the s.s. Gothic. The material is expected to arrive in the course of a few days.

* MASTERTON - Messrs G. Hyde and Co., furnishers and importers, Queen-street, request the public to inspect their window display of bedsteads. They have just unpacked a large parcel per the steamer Gothic and the public are sure of a good deal and value for their money if they make their puchases at this up-to-date shop.

In August last, at the instance of the Inspector of Mines at Dunedin, the Minister of Mines wrote to the High Commissioner in London (the Hon W. P. Reeves), asking him to institute inquiries in Great Britain and on the Continent as to the most efficient life-saving appliances on the market for rescue work in mines, in view of the recent disaster at the Kaitangata mine through foul air. The reply of the High Commissioner to the communication of the Minister makes interesting reading to those concerned in mining operations. Under date November 3 the High Commissioner states that inquiries were made of the Home Office, with a view to eliciting information possessed by that Department, and it was ascertained that the whole matter was now under investigation by the Royal Commission on mines recently appointed for that purpose. The High Commissioner place himself in communication with Messrs Poebe, Gorman and Co., Wallace Bros., Mr R. Cremer, and Mr R. Jacobsen, who were severally asked if they were willing to lend specimens of the appliances for exhibition at Christchurch in the Model Colliery Court. This they all signified their willingness to do if the Government would pay the cost of the transmission to and from the Exhibition, and insurance out and home, and whilst at the Exhibition, as the cost of these appliances is considerable. The High Commissioner accepted the stipulation and the appliances are now on their way to New Zealand by the steamers Ruapehu and Gothic, due here on December 19 and January 1 respectively. The High Commissioner further stated that the above firms were informed that it is possible that the Government may purchase some of the appliances for trial in the New Zealand mines.

death of ANNIE HUNTER 1839-1906

Bush Advocate (Dannevirke), 6 July 1906
(aged 67)

...It is with deep regret we are called upon to record the death of Mrs W. H. Hunter (William Henry), of this town, which occurred at her residence this morning, after a brief illness, the cause of death being heart failure, resulting from an attack of pleurisy.

...The late Mrs Hunter was born in the Isle of Wight in 1839, and two years later arrived in the colony with her father, Mr Thomas Guthrie (1814-1876), in the ship 'Adelaide'
Annie was 4 months old when they emigrated.
The Adelaide left London 18 Sep 1839, arriving in Wellington 7 March 1840

Mr Guthrie having taken up a large block of land at Castlepoint, the subject of this notice was sent to a school in Wellington, where she remained for a number of years, and then joined her parents at Castlepoint.

In 1860 Miss Guthrie was married to Mr William Henry Hunter (1831-1876), brother of the late Mr George Hunter (1821-1880), the well-known merchant, of Wellington. The young couple then took up a run at Porangahau. Here Mrs Hunter remained till 1891 (her husband having died in 1876), when she changed her residence to Dannevirke, where she lived till the date of her death. In the days of her early married life the late Mrs Hunter had to take her full share of all the hardships and dangers incidental to life in the back country, the difficulties of which were greatly increased by the disturbed state of the natives.

Mrs Hunter is survived by four sons:-
W. G. Hunter (William George 1863-1942)
T. H. Hunter (Thomas Henry 1864-)
R. J. Hunter (Robert James 1866-1908)
H. G. Hunter (Harold Graham Hunter 1874-1930)
and two daughters:-
Mrs Campbell Thomson (Helen 1869-1908)
Mrs Ronald Norman Blakiston (Annie Constance 1871-1955)

...The late Mrs Hunter was of a very active disposition, and gave up much time to furthering the Hospital project, which always had her warmest support. She always took a keen interest in volunteering matters, and was prepared to give her assistance to any work with a charitable object.
Her death will be sadly mourned by many residents in Hawkes Bay.
...Mrs Whishaw, of Featherston, a sister of the deceased (Catherine Elizabeth Guthrie), is the only surviving member of Mr Guthrie's family.
...The interment will take place on Sunday afternoon, at 2.30
As a mark of respect to the memory of the late Mrs Hunter, Pastor Ries, as chairman of the Hospital Trustees, asked that the proceedings at the Hospital Fancy Fair be suspended for half an hour this afternoon. In doing so he said that they were all exceedingly sorry to hear of Mrs Hunter's death, as that lady was not only an old and respected resident of the district, but was ever ready to assist in movements such as they were now engaged in. In fact she had been working most assiduously for the bazaar prior to her illness, and as a tribute to her memory he moved that the proceedings of the bazaar be suspended for half an hour.
...This, on being seconded, was agreed to, and the doors were accordingly closed

ANNIE HUNTER is buried Grave, 66, Block G at Settlers Cemetery, Dannevirke

TIMELINE of Albert West Sedcole (1843-1928)
taken from NZETC:
Councillor ALBERT WEST SEDCOLE, of the Pahiatua Borough Council, was born in the parish of Hougham, near Dover, Kent. He came to this Colony with his father's family in 1855, arriving in Lyttelton on the 4th of January. They spent some three weeks in that town before coming on to Wellington, thereby escaping the earthquake by some three or four days. From Wellington Mr. Sedcole went on to Napier, where he remained for two years, returning to Wellington in 1858. In 1861 he went to Gabriel's Gully, where fortune smiled on him, and his affairs began to prosper. In 1862 he left Wellington for Canterbury, and spent no less than twenty years in the southern province, marrying there Miss Margaret Martin, daughter of Mr. Martin, shipwright, of Kaiwarra, Wellington, who was lost at sea in the year 1816.
About the year 1882, the land in the Forty-mile Bush was thrown open for sale, and after visiting the place, Mr. Sedcole determined to take up land in Pahiatua, removing with his family from Lyttelton in July of that year, and he has resided there ever since. In conjunction with his brother and Mr. W. W. McCardle, Mr. Sedcole decided to cut up some of the land on the Main Road, and thus was started what is now known as the borough of Pahiatua. Mr. Sedcole has always taken a prominent part in public affairs, and has displayed great energy in the formation of public bodies for the better conduct of matters in general; notably, the Road Board, County Town Board, and finally the borough. Mr. Sedcole acted as village steward under the Ballance Government for a considerable period. He at all times kept in view the improvement of his farm, and finally settled down to dairying, sending the milk to the butter factory. For some considerable time Mr. Sedcole has acted as land valuer for the Public Trustee and the Government Life Insurance, and, since the inception of the Government Advances to Settlers Act, has acted in the capacity of land valuer of the securities offered by the settlers for advances.

Wairarapa Daily Times, 24 July 1885
PAHIATUA - The weather still keeps very cold and damp, owing to the dense fog that hangs about till late in the day; but in spite of the weather we are still making steady progress. Buildings are foing up in every direction, besides many others talked about.
The hotel is becoming a feature in the landscape, and. when finished, will be quite an acquisition to the town. The new saw mill is expected to be in full swing in about a week, and to keep pace with the demand for building material, Mr A. W.
