THE WHEAT CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 8 March 1899
. THE ,WHEAT. CROPS. ,_ The yields of wheat this year will go far (remarks a Launceston exchange) to com nensate farmers for the low prices that prevail., It is probable that an average of 80 bushels per acre (if not more) will be threshed all over the colony, and, ieveh at 9/5 nnr VinoViol Ibis will nav where rents are reasonable. Owing to the improved cultivating machinery that is available, wheat can now be grown at less than £3 per acre, including in this sum rent, wages, and interest on capital. Notwithstanding all this, it has been a disappointment to many that having a good crop they can only obtain a poor return. Still we must be thankful for the good crop;' the low prices are not caused by our produc tion, but by the low prices elsewhere ; in deed, it is probable that if our crops had been only . 15 instead of 30 bushels per acre prices would not have been -more than a few pence higher. ?

NECESSITY FOR WHARF IMPROVEMENTS. VISIT OF AN INSPECTOR. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 8 March 1899
NECESSITY FOR WHARF BL PROVEMENTS. ?VISIT OF AN INSPECTOR. Following the visit of Mr Cresswell, engineer of the permanent way, on Friday last, Mr H. Jones, inspector of bridges, arrived in Devonport yesterday and made an inspection of the under portion of the west wharf during the afternoon. Mr D. Cocker (Master Warden) and Captain Murray, sen. (harbor master) accompanied Mr Jones during the inspection. It needed but a cursory examination to reveal to the inspector the bad Btate of repair which the wharf was in, and to convince him of the urgent necessity of the matter of repairs being dealt with as soon as possible. Much of the timber was found to be in\an advanced state of decay. A number of the piles had been completely destroyed by the ravages of the toredo navalis. The piling extends from the face of the wharf to the extre mity of the storage sheds, and the timber in the deeper water was very much per forated by the toredo, though the piles to wards the high water mark were in ...
Wharf Extension at Devonport. A PROGRESSIVE POLICY WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 8 March 1899
Wharf Extension at Devonport. A PROGRESSIVE POLICY ?? WANTED. The question of providing additional wharfage accommodation at Devonport undergoes revival as .each - successivepro duce season brings along its ample store, and oft-discussed as the subject is. it is surprising that up to the present nothing tangible has yet been arrived at in the direction of wharf extension. To argue for a moment that the work is not a necessity is mere idle talk, and we venture tosay that not a single individual who wit nesses the many inconveniences to shipping through the lack of sufficient accommoda tion at this port can conscientiously eschew the necessity for. better provision being made. We would refer the cynic to the overcrowded port, during the latter part of last week, when vessels, were greatly hindered in their operations. And this by no means an exceptional experience, buta circumstance that will recur time and again before the bulk of the season's Dro duce is marketed.' The experience fo...

DEATHS OF INFANTS. A PECULIAR CASE. Launceston. Monday. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 8 March 1899
DEATHS OF INFANTS. A PECULIAR CASE. Launceeton. Mondav. An inquest was held this afternoon into the circumstances of the death of a female infant of Mrs George Henderson, which died at Dilston on Wednesday last. From the evidence adduced it appeared that Mrs Henderson gave birth prema turely to a child on Tuesday last, and it died the next day. The husband, acting in total ignorance of the law, buried it in their garden without having first ob tained a certificate of death. The medical testimony showed that tho child had breathed, but it could not have lived, and that, death was due to premature birth. The , Coroner told Henderson he was liable to a fine of £10, but he did not know what action the police would take ^in the matter. ; Tho jury returned a ver diot in accordance with the medical testi mony. Launceston, Tuesday.; 11 An inquest was held at the Tunnel (near Scottsdale) yesterday on the body of a male infant. Henry Parker, the father, gave evidence to the effect that there ...
