TREASURE HUNT Salvage Parties Quarrel (PUBLISHED IN "THE TIMES.") LONDON, July 27. [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
-------- Salvage Parties Quarrel (PUBLISHED IN "THE TIMES.") IONDON, July 27. A treasure hunting divers' fight un der the sea is within the bounds of possibility in real life, according to the Admiralty judge's view in deciding an application between rival salvage com panies who are searching for bullion from the Dutch steamer Tubantia, which was sunk by Germans off the Dutch coast in 1916.

Justice Hill dismissed the application on legal grounds, because he could not see how an order could be enforced, but sympathised with the plaintiffs' action, and said the defenduint was unsports manlike. It would le shocking if rival salvers fought at the bottom of the sea. which would be the case if they carried their rivalry to extremes. He wulul vien with grea...

Over my bed they tripped and tumbled-women, flappers, mothers, young girls, oid girls, married, single, plain ones, pretty ones, fat ones, thin ones-in hundreds, m thousands, armies ot them, battalions of women carrying thousands of baskets. They rod(l on me, walked over me. shoved me, rushed me, and as they passed I counted, counted madly in twos, in tens, in hundreds. I multi plied. I subtracted, I added; I lost count. I reached the thousands, the hundreds of thousands-and then I awoke . I was dreaming of Adelaide, the City of Baskets. Melbourne women never carry baskets. Anyway, not the smart and pretty ones. But in Ade laide the prettiest of pretty ones do, and I have been wondering whether the women of Adelaide are more prac tical or more domesticated than Mel The Road to Gleneig bourne's proud ...
