A CAPTURED GUNBOAT. PRICE OF FOODSTUFFS. SYDNEY, October 19. Senator Pearce has received a wireless message giving details of the capture of the German gunboat Komet. It had a complete wireless plant and a quick-firer aboard. *£ne captain, Soiir Genuati officers, and 52 natives were made prisoners. There were no casualties. The Komet is proceeding to Sydney with the late Governor of New Guinea and other prisoners aboard. As a result of representations from the country dealers in smaller commodities, the Commission has altered the prices of bran and pollavd, placing the city and the country practically on a par with Melbourne.
