Disasters at Sea. A STEAMSHIP FOUNDERS. London. February 15. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 17 February 1899
Disasters at Sea. A STEAMSHIP FOUNDERS. London. Februarv 15. It is feared that the steamship Bulgaria, of the Hamburg- American line, has foun dered at sea.

Something to be Pitied. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 17 February 1899
Something to be Pitied. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-^Your local contemporary is in a sorry plight.' From being annoyed at its frequent ebullitions of petty spite and choice abuse, I have now come to regard it with sincere and deep-rooted pity. That the author of this high class journalism to which we have lately been treated is quite compos mentis, I cannot believe. This is the most charitable view I can take of the matter, as any other is calculated to arouse feelings of indignation and distrust in the minds of all right thinking men. Harmless lunacy the law allows to run its course, but where the public weal is endangered it takes the offender and provides him with food and lodging, but deprives him of the free exercise of his limbs or the opportunity to dip his pen in gall and pour out the vaporings of an overheated brain and an unbalanced mind. I am afraid the Aikenheadphobia from which your contemporary is suffering is likely to become of the latter dangerous kind. Its main object is d...

DEPENDING THE SLAN DERED. \ ' Now that we have so. effectually frus trated the futile but malignant attempt of our local contemporary to throw dust in the eyes of the public and impugn the highest motives of local justices of the peace, we arecalledupon in conclusion to answer another phase of the subject. Our contemporary, badly beaten in points of fact all through, in further exercising his well-known faculties for misrepresenta tion,' now geeks to have the. public believe that the contradictions and explanations furnished in these colomnB to his unfounded charge hare emanated from Mr Aikenhead. We can positively issufe the public that ire have neither seen nor heard from Mr Aikenhead in any way whatever in con nection with the matter, that gentleman evidently treating the accusations with the contempt they deserve.

Commercial. "The Advocate" Office, Thursday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 17 February 1899
Commercial. j ' The Advocate ' Office, Thursday Evening. As many people have learnt to their cost, there is one business that is, to use a hackneyed phrase, a glorious uncertainty, that is, mining, and the most you can get is ' that it looks all right, but-you-never know what is under tho ground.' And to the cost'of those who are engaged in the potato business, both producing and deal ing, the same may be applied. If one could only regulate tho supplies, and send for ward, say, not more than 10,000 sacks per week, prices would keep fairly steady, but how to attain that standard has so far beaten all dealers. If the N.W. Coast were the only place sending potatoes for ward we possibly might keep some where in the vicinity, but when we find other places pouring in their quota, to gunge the quantity that may go forward each week is one of the problems that beat even the most know ing. As to prices, theso are on a par with quantities, and a rise takes place when we find buyers declaring ...
