' Commercial. The 'Advocate' Office, Saturday evening. . .'.. Another week of activity in the produce market has passed away, and again' the 'numbers are up' for potato export. We estimated in last Monday's issue 12,000 to 13,000 sacks at least from all coast ports, and that the prices would rule in the vicinity of £3 to 8/5/. As far as the quantities are concerned they top our estimate, tho full quantity manifested by tho steamers Glaucus and Tekapo being 15,214 bags ; and the price has, fortunately, also exceeded anticipations. Our estimate of quantities and prices were made on Saturday last, 'February 25, and it muBt be admitted we have come put fairly jwell.

For the Faunas. . THE:TASfiTANIAN SEASON. ' Up to the 26th ult. unbroken1 weather prevailed (writes the Tasinanian ' Agri cultural Gazette '), which was all that was desired for harvest operations. The break on the day named has not interfered or caused much loss in threshing and carting operations. Wheat is turning out a lieavy yield, much above the average, which has not yet been reduced to figures, but will reach near 30 bushels on acre ; 2s Id per bushel of 601bs is the buying price at country stations,. '?or 2s 3d at the ports. Parley, h the last month of its growth, stiCT'ieil i'i.''-i dry wo.vlisr, n'd is not up . to the average, either in yield or acreage.

CATTLE-STEALERS AND THE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 6 March 1899
CATTLE-STEALEBS AND THE LAW. A decision given at the Sale (Victoria) Supreme Court by Mr Justico Hodges in reference to a cattle-stealing caso has come as a surprise to most owners of stock. The judge decided thatbefore a conviction against a cattle thief can be obtained 're- cent possession ' of the animal in question must bo proved, and he holds tnat it a period of nine months elapses before steps are token to institute u prosecution the delay is an absolute bar to conviction. The governing idea in the judge's mind seemed to be that in a farming district, where cattle; ore frequently changing hands, it would be difficult for any man to say where he got a beast after nine months had elapsed. It is doubtful if many stock owners in tbe colony (remarks the ' Argus') will agree with this ruling. The man who buys cattle or horses in the ordinary way usually takes particular notice of their colors, markings, brands, and general appearance, and he can at a moment's notice account for when...

Foreign Missions. 'THE CBITIC CRITICISED.' The announcement that a local minister intended to answer from the pulpit recent newspaper comments on foreign missions and foreign missionaries.attracted a large number to the Congregational Church,' West Devoriport, last night, when the Rev. D. Brown delivered a. powerful dis course on the subject, taking as his text Matthew xxviii., 19. He commenced by saying that an article had appeared in the columns of the 'North West Post ' which contained a wholesale denunciation of foreign missions. As the Congregational Churches were directly interested in the question, through the London Missionary Society, they were included in the attack. That was his. reason, he would not' say apology^-rno apology was needed where one sought to defend oneself, or Church, from attack — for addressing them that evening in relation to the subject.' The question of foreign missions was an ex tensive one, but as he was simply under taking a defence, his address,- a...
