"In consequence of
a letter which was circulated in
Melbourne on Saturday, a telegram was
received here announcing that the missing
steamer Waratah had been found. This
message was conveyed to the Messrs Mack
solicitors, and bells were rung
in the town as a sign of joy over the safety
of Mr Klick. When later the telegram was
contradicted the apprehension
was deepened and great sympathy is felt
for the relatives of the missing passengers."
SYMPATHY WITH PARENTS.
"In view of the lack of tidings of the S.S. Waratah, the
Geelong Harbour Trust, of which Mr Lascelles is
a commissioner, and who has a
daughter on the missing vessel, dispensed
with its usual meeting today. A letter of
sympathy with Mr. and Mrs. Lascelles and
family was forwarded by the chairman
(Mr. G. I. Holden, M.L.A.)."
"It has been ascertained that Messrs. Grigg and W.
Milburn, of California Gully, booked to Durban
by the Waratah."
