ELECTRIC LIGHTING FOR DEVONPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 January 1899
ELECTRIC LIGHTING FOR DEVONPORT. The electric lighting project is a matter of especial interest to Devonport re- &nbsp; &nbsp; sidents. Hitherto propositions in this direction (and there have been several) have ended in mere talk. It would appear, however, that the Town Board are determined to carry out the present proposal. In the streets, in the shops, and in many of the dwellings, illumina- tion by electricity would be much appre- ciated. An approximation of the cost will be arrived at after a valuation of properties in the area over which the current is proposed to extend, now being prepared, is submitted by the town clerk at the meeting of the Town Board next Monday week. A com- &nbsp; mendable feature in the present proposal is that beyond the cost of a few street lamps the general taxpayer will not be required to contribute a single penny towards working expenses, and the occupiers of' premises within the pre- scribed area may or may not incur the expe...

' The Yarra Tragedy. THE INQUEST OPENED. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE GIRL DUBBERKE GIVES EVIDENCE. HOW THE DECEASED WAS TREATED. SHOCKING DISCLOSURES. Melbourne. Wednesday. The inquest on the body of Mabel Am- brose was opened to-day. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The most important witness was the girl Dubberke, who turned Queen's Evi- dence. She spoke freely of the treatment the deceased girl was subjected to at the hands of Madame Radalysiki to bring about a miscarriage. On the morning of December 18, Mabel Ambrose screamed twice, and witness, on going to her &nbsp; room, saw her fall back on the bed black in; the face. She asked Madame Radalyski what she had done, and she re- plied, ' I have killed the girl and will be hanged.' Madame put hot water bottles in the bed to try and revive her, and when Dr Gaze came, at the request of witness, Madame Radalyski asked him for a certi- ficate of death, but he said...
Commercial. The "Advocate" Office, Saturday Evening [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 30 January 1899
Commercial. The 'Advocate' Office, , ???-?.,'?,?' Saturday Evening. . . The potato market, as has been often ' said, is very much like mining, or in other | words is a glorious uncertainty. The rises and falls that take place occasionally cause surprise to buyers, producers andonlookers ; alike, and the very great rise that took ? plaoe yesterday and Thursday come as a very great surprise to most buyers, though certainly as a very pleasant one to the ? producers. Those who were fortunate enough to be 'in it' for yesterday's prices : wore a very contended and happy look i and to use a saying ' fairly shook hands j.' with themselves.' Many of them re marked they did not expect to get any thing like the price, and some of them said they could not see how the buyer was , to make his own money. This applies mostly to East Devonport, which is respon - sible for the rise in prices, as up to .£6/10/ was paid for a few parcels there yesterday. A large quantity sold at £6/5/ to £6/7/6, the ma...

N.W. FARMERS' ASSOCIATION. The North Western Farmers' ;'Associa tion, Ltd., report for week ending Friday, 27th inst., as follows : — Potatoes: Owing to fairly light de liveries (caused through harvesting opera tions being carried out on a general scale) and the last shipment meeting with a ready sale in Sydney, values have im proved considerably, and there is every prospect of a good demand at fairly high rates for some weeks tn come, if shipments do not not exceed 7.000 sacks. . , , . ?'../.. Turnips : There is now a fair market for limited quantities, and growers will do ?well to send on a few, each week. ' ' Oats: The balance of old season's are now going forward to olear up stocks be fore the new crop is available. Values are likely to come a little lower in a week or two for sparrowbills, but Tartarians will meet ? with ready sale, and holders will do well to forward promptly. ^Alger ians are likely to be a drug. ;; r.. ? ?'???
