The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate, Saturday 15 January 1910 Workman's Compensation Fund.
It is stated that under the workmen's Compensation Act, £14,600 is payable to relatives of 115 of the crew of the lost steamer, Waratah. Small compensation for the loss of a loved one and bread winner @ £127 on average per crew member ! And what of the missing 4 crew members making up the full compliment of 119? I suppose we can exclude Captain Ilbery and his chief officers?
