Eleven lives were lost in the disaster to Submarine A7, which occurred in Whitsand Bay. The sea was moderate at the time. The submarine, accompanied by the Pigmy, attached to a sea going depot ship, the Forth, dived for the purpose of firing torpedoes. Through the A7 remaining an unusual time below the officers of the Pigmy became alarmed. They endeavored to communicate with the submarine, but their calls elicited no response. They noticed ominous bubbles on the smooth surface, and placed a buoy in position to mark the spot. The buoy, however, drifted, and could not be found. Prompt sal vage efforts were continued fruitlessly with the aid of a searchlight. The ofichials subsequently stated that there was practically no hope of effect ing a rescue, as the oxygen supply was onily sufilcint for six hours. No fewer than 200 officers and men have ...

The funeral took place yes- terday afternoon, when his remains were interred in the Ararat Cemetery. The c...

PEOPLING THE LAND. A- compared with' the figures of the previous year there was a falling off in i..e number of immigrantswho arrived in Victoria during 1913 to the exteit of 2,1S9. A very disappointing feature of the rear's work: was the reductioniin the number of iiominated passengers.. Though a substantial increase:was ex pected at the outset a total of only 4,903 was secured, as compared with ;"22.3 during the previous year.,'.' 'The limmigration authorities now ,recognise that increased efforts are necessary' i order to make the nomination 'ssstenm successful, and accordingly they havy derided to give more publicity to the inducements offered by the delart. ment.

MR WATT ON THE LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 22 January 1914
MR WATT ON THE LOAN. Mr Watt stated on Tuesday night that he had been advised by cable that for the Victorian £1,000,000 loan over three millions had been subscribed. He had no advice as to stock being at a premium, or whether the three millions included the underwriters' offer and fee. If it meant that one million had been subscribed by the public and two millions by the underwriters, it demon strated that the stringency of the Lon don money market for the past twelve months had eased, also that Victorian credit was sound. It showed, thirdly; that the loan had been wisely placed, and at the right time. If his memory served him right, Mr Watt said, this was the most fully subscribed loan of any State for many years. The terms of loans were affected by the terms be ing offered in other States, and no doubt the better prices offered recently by New South Wales had affected this loan. This he. gook as showing the need for a consolidation of State debts, and it was important that that w...
MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 22 January 1914
MINING T~INJ, IGENCjE. The "Australasian" of yesterdayl says :--A good deal of speculation is still being indulged in with respect to the Cathcart Central mine at Ararat. A very satisfactory output has been maintained at the property during the past: six months, and yet shares have fallen in the market. This has oc curred despite tee knowledge that the panelling face has riot yet reached the run of good ground to the south-east, as prospected during the comparatively early stages of the mine. The trouble seems to be that the ground there is draining slowly. If that be the case a day may come when the mine mana ger may not be able to live up to the expectations that people formed of the possibilities of high yields being kept up. Down the gutter some rich ground has also been developed, but, of course, prospecting work there cannot yet have demonstrated beyond question the con tinuity of the run of gold. Some of the shareholders are pointing out that it seems extraordinary to find th...
