GUMERACHA EXPLOSION. Was Petrol the Cause? [Newspaper Article] — The Register News-Pictorial — 3 January 1929

GUMERACHA EXPLOSION. Was Petrol the Cause? Much interest in the cause of the ex plosion in a well at Gumeracha on Mon day, which resulted in the death of three men, has been evinced by Government   officials and local residents. Police offi cers and experts are trying to solve the mystery.           Several leading geologists thought that   the trouble may have been caused as a result of natural gases. Had this theory been correct, it was thought that the disaster might have given the key to im portant mineral developments. After an inspection of the well however, experts do not hold out any hope of this theory being correct.     Geogolists Visit Well. The Government Geologist (Dr. L. Keith Ward), and the Chief Inspector of Mines (Mr. L.J. Winton) visited Gumeracha on Tuesday. Lighted candles were first lowered into the well, and then Mr. Winton climbed down to make a...

MISSIONARIES SPOIL BLACKS. MUST NOT TREAT THEM AS EQUALS. ♦     TOO FEW POLICE IN CENTRE. By Our Own Corrspondent. ALICE SPRINGS - Wednesday. In his evidence before the federal board which is enquiring     into the shooting of blacks by a police party in Central Aus- tralia, the Rev. E. E. Kramer, a well-known missionary of the Aborigines Friends' Association, said to-day that there was justification for the allegations that missionaries caused trouble between blacks and whites. Young missionaries, not under- standing the aboriginal temperment , treated the blacks as equals and provoked trouble, by allowing too much familiarity. Mr. Kramer read a letter addressed to a Government official in which he said he was forced to the conclusion that the herding of blacks, on mission reserves was   wrong; and that making them work on outback stations was preferable.     Mr. Kramer recalled to the memory...
