SCENE ON THE WARRIGAL. A GERMAN FOUND CONCEALED. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 9 January 1900
SCENE ON THE WARRIGAL. A GERMAN FOUND CONCEALED. When the police received the com munication from Sydney stating that Mr. Crockett, of Leichhardt, desired his son to' be taken from the Warrigal, Detective Thompson proceeded to the boat and announced his business. The troops good-humouredly offered to as sist in the search, but the detective had grave doubts as to their sincerity. The boy had (states the "Argus")estabhlished himself as a favourite on board, and it appears extremely likely that some trooper warned him that he was in danger of being taken ashore. Every part of the ship was searched, and the boy was not found, and the detective was forced to return to the city discom fited. On Thursday morning he re turned to the boat, and in overhauling some straw in the forehold he came across another stowaway-a grown man of about 35, with a long fair mous tache, and a German accent, which made the soldiers anxious to get him off the ship as speedily as possible. No action was taken a...

A WARRIGAL STOWAWAY. ARREST OF A SYDNEY BOY. DETERMINED TO FIGHT THE BOERS. HIS FATHER INTERVENES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 9 January 1900
A WARRIGAL STOWAWAY. ARREST OF A SYDNEY BOY. DETERMINED TO FIGHT THE BOERS, HIS FATHER INTERVENES. Henry Crockett was chagrined, but not dismayed, as he stood four feet six above the floor of the City Court, Mel bourne, on Thursday. He glanced resentfully at Sergeant Eason, the court orderly, when he said, "Stand there, my boy," and was positively en raged when the same official told the whole court-full of grown-up men and women-that he was "charged with being a neglected child." Henry Crockett did not like the idea of being called a child. He was 14 last birthday, he proudly informed the Bench, but his feeliugs towards Ser geant Eason changed completely when the latter explained "The boy was going to the war, your worships. He came over with the New South Wales contingent, but his father objects." Detective Thompson then entered the witness-box. "A telegram was received yesterday," he said, "asking that the steamer Warragal should be searched, as this lad was supposed to have stow...

Lon 'don: Macmillan and Co.-These are two of the more advanced' of a series of lesson books for Australian. youth, which compare favourably in every respect with any similar educational books in use in the United Kingdom.
