On Monday, the 9 November 1874, The Hope of Balclutha Lodge, Independent Order of Good Templars, (a temperance society) was instituted at Balclutha. E. Teague was elected and installed as W.C.(it is not known what this abbreviation indicates)

TAPANUI. (From a Correspondent) Mr. Teague, photographer, of Balclutha, has been here for some days, taking some splendid pictures. He succeeded in taking a very fair view of the transit. I imagine if our American cousins, who went to Queenstown, had chosen the Blue Mountains instead, they would have had much better results, as the sun frequently shone — in fact, constantly- when all around was clouded

Akaroa Mail, Tuesday 5 March 1878

At the usual weekly meeting of the Akaroa Hope Lodge, I.O.G.T., held on Wednesday evening last, there was a very good attendance of members, considering that at the time of meeting the rain began to descend pretty heavily. After the usual routine business had been gone through, including the initiation of two new members, and the reobligation of another, the usual harmony was proceeded with. Afterwards a vote of thanks was accorded to the visiting brethren coupled with the name of Bro. E. Teague, who visited the lodge by means of his travelling card, and who has recently arrived at Akaroa from Lyttelton, on business connected with the photographic art. Bro Teague, in response, said he was very surprised and pleased to see the interest taken in the good cause here, as was evinced by the attendence there that evening considering the state of the weather, and thought that the attendance would compare favourably with many a larger town that he had visited. He heartily thanked the members for the welcome he had received, and stated that during his stay in Akaroa, he would not be a stranger to their Lodge. Singing, recitations, and readings followed, and the Lodge closed at the usual hour, with due ceremony. - The Akaroa Mail Friday 8 March 1878.

We have been shown some photographic views taken by Mr Teague, and we must congratulate that gentleman upon the excellent manner in which they are done. Some carte de visite likenesses, taken by the same gentleman, appear to us to be superior specimens of the photographer's art. Mr Teague's visit here is but for a short time, we would impress upon those who may wish to "secure the shadow ere the substance fails," to take advantage of this opportunity, and, "on business thought intent," pay the studio a visit. - The Akaroa Mail, 15 March 1878

We would remind those of our readers who have not as yet paid a visit to Mr Teague's photographic studio, that, if they wish to avail themselves of that gentleman's services, they must do so at once, as his establishment closes on Tuesday next.

Yesterday, some cattle were being driven along Oxford street, Lyttelton, when one of them, being headed, turned into Mr Teague's (photographer) shop. Mr Teague, who was absent at the time, came up promptly, but the bull blocking the way, he could not effect an entrance. Mr Garforth, who happened to be on the spot, managed to get into the gallery, and, at no small risk to himself, seized the animal by the head and backed him out, fortunately before he managed to do any damage.

Adjudged a bankrupt in 1887.

We are informed by Constable Phair that a man named Edward Teague was arrested at Westport today on a charge of obtaining money under false pretenses. The warrant was issued at Reefton on the information of a resident of Merrijigs, where Teague is alleged to have represented himself as a photographer connected with Mr Sherlock. He will be brought to Reefton on Saturday, and it is not unlikely that further charges will be preferred against him.
