CROPS AND MARKETS &nbsp; TASMANIAN MARKETS. &nbsp; DEVONPORT.-It is expected there &nbsp; will be considerable activity in the &nbsp; potato market this week, especially if Sydney opens well for the stuff sent by the Oonah and Westralia.

A larger area &nbsp; has been laid down in peas; they are doing well, although in some instances have been checked by frost. Oats are being generally cut for hay. &nbsp;

THE SENATE VACANCY To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919
THE SENATE VACANCY &nbsp; &nbsp; To the Editor. &nbsp; &nbsp; Sir,-In view of the vacancy in the &nbsp; Federal Senate, is it not right that a &nbsp; man who is thoroughly cognisant with, and who has worked persistently for the primary producer of the N.W. Coast, should be the man for the posi- tion? Mr. Nichols, M.L.C., is, I ven- ture to say, the obvious selection for the Senate. No man is more thorough- ly representative of the farmers, stockowners, timber interests and gen- eral interests of the Coast. Mr. Nichols has a long and excellent record of Parliamentary service in the State, and has ever been to the front in all progressive measures ; the Nietta rail- way and Burnie breakwater, to men- tion only two. There is no representa- tive in the Senate of the N.W. Coast, and in my opinion it is high time that this part of Tasmania, which is uni- versally accounted the most progressive in the island, should be represented directly by...
