Harbor Grace Standard & Conception Bay Advertiser

1888

The HARBOR GRACE STANDARD, earliest issue located: Dec. 7, 1859 (v. 1, no. 4)and it ceased publication: 1936. Frequency of publication was weekly, Dec. 7, 1859-Mar. 3, 1888; semiweekly, Mar. 10, 1888-1894 and weekly, 1894-1936?

The paper had several titles: Standard and Conception-Bay Advertiser, Dec. 7, 1859-Dec.25, 1867; Harbor Grace Standard and Conception-Bay Advertiser, Mar.1, 1871-Mar. 3, 1888; Harbor Grace Standard, Mar. 10, 1888-1936.

The Harbor Grace Standard published news of the Conception Bay Region, domestic and foreign news, legislative proceedings, extracts from St. John's papers, shipping and fishing news, poetry, and advertisements. The paper strongly opposed Confederation in 1865 but supported it by 1869. In the 1870's the paper did not receive patronage from the Bennett administration and supported Carter and Ambrose Shea, who represented the Harbour Grace district in the House of Assembly. The paper supported the railway and Whiteway's first administration. The Standard took the Protestant side in the aftermath of the 1883 Harbour Grace affray and supported Thorburn in 1885. The Standard was published until 1936 when it folded due to economic reasons.

26 May 1888DeathAn item from Rose Blanch in the MERCURY says that Robert NOTT, the unfortunate missing courier, was found about 500 yards from the place he last left. His head was under water, but his body on dry land; he had probably fainted, and fallen on his back near a small brook or gut, with only about one foot of water in it. Two days after he left Basse Isle, a man living near the spot where he was found, went gunning in the landwash; his dog ran several times to and fro where the poor fellow had fallen; by his bar and gestures, he apparently tried to make his master sensible that there was something at the spot he pointed out, but the man not knowing that the courier was missing, did not go where the dog wished. Constable HAYNES did all he could to find him, and at last succeeded; he deserves much credit for his efforts.
