I am having a hard time searching newspaper archives behind the pay wall. :/ I'm wondering if anyone knows:

a) was the NY Times a popular newspaper in Philly in 1912? Would it have been how many got their news?

b) were people aware on April 15 that it had been struck and (more importantly) talking about it? (there are small articles smattered around about it, though it seems the real news didn't hit until April 16; again, I could be mistaken as this is just what I'm gathering without full access to any archives)
