VOLTURNO DISASTER CAPTAIN'S ORDEAL [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 22 January 1914
- VOLIURNO DISASTER CAPT'AIN'S ORDlEAL "Within five minutes of the fire being reported to the captain flames reaching to a. Jeight of thirty or forty feet-were leaping. out of the. hatchway leading to :No. 1 hold." This statement, made yesterday at the Board of Trade in quiry, held at the Caxton Hall, into the disaster to the Volturno,. illustrated the extraordinary nature of the tra gedy which those in charge of the ship had to face (reports the "Daily E-: press" of November 27). This appalling suddenness in the de velopment of the fire was due in a large measure to the inflammable sia ture of the cargo, which was described by Mrl Acland, K.C., who represented the Board of Trade, as follows: ''In No. 1 hold there were stowed drums and barrels of various chemi als, and tar oil and other oils. Above that were rags. Above them peat moss, and. above-that straw-covered bottles, so that when the fire started there was material for making the astonishing blaze which resulted. "In the seco...

THE LIBERAL POLICY, COMPENSATION TO WORKERS COSTRIBUTED. Now that the members of the Liberal party in the State Parliament have settled their diffecences, they Ehould be ready to frame and pass mea.ure~ which make for the h She:t good ofi the many. The triumph of Mr. Watt and the reoconstiucrion of his Ministrv mean, amongst other things, that i-.! stead of a plunge into Socialism ihC' wage earner will get certain verv solid advantages. Amongst the measures that will dO: much to improve the pos:tion of thI wage earner is one to provide for compensation to workers for injuneri occuring in the course of their emplovi$ ment. Under the old system t~e worker's chance of securing comnFeispe tion if disabled whilst at work was very doubtful; the chance of hi widow securing compensation if thN, injuries proved fatal was mare dubtu. ful.

PARSONS AND HUNTING VIEW OF ARCHBISHOP OF YORK. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 22 January 1914
PARSONS AND iUNTINO VIEW OF ARCHBISHOP OF YORK. In dedicating on Sunday at M.or Monkton Church a memorial window to the late Rev. Charles Slingsby, who was killed while hunting, the Arch bishop of Tork defended the associa tion between hunting and the life of the professing Christian (says the "Daily News" of November 18). He would be a very bold man, naid the Archbishop, who would argue that hunting was so cruel that it was abso lutely wrong. "It is very difficult to express an opinion," said Mr James Buckland. when seen on the subject by a "Dailp News" representative. "The advocates of the sport argue that it brings a great deal of money into the country, and, again, the existence of the fox depends largely upon it. It is a question whe ther it is better that the fox should be shot by the farmers on sight or bred for hunting purposes."' If hunting were to cease, in a few years the fox would be exterminated. Mr Buckland said he was acquainted with a charming clergyman who hunted wi...

Dalston (reports the "Daily Jail" of-December 6). Annie Donald, daughter, said that since her father died 40 years ago it had been one long struggle for her mo ther to keep body and soul together.

The witness became hys terical, calling upon Heaven not to leave her to fight the battle of life alone, and had to be carried out of the court. The Jury returned a verdict of death from heart failure.
