Delphic, from London

 

Shortly after 10 o’clock this morning, the White Star liner Delphic, from London, Plymouth, Teneriffe, Capetown, and Hobart, came to an anchorage in the stream, where her passengers were inspected by the Health Officer, who found everything satisfactory.  As there were a large number of passengers on board to be examined, the vessel was not berthed at the Queen’s Wharf until 12.20 pm.  She left Plymouth at 2.41 pm on 29th September, sighted Teneriffe 4th October at 8.45 pm, passing the island quite close, so as to signal “All well”.  Fair weather was experienced to lnt 18.49 deg S, when a strong breeze and rough sea was encountered, which was met with on and off until arrival at Capetown on 22nd October at 3.58 pm.  The vessel resumed her voyage next day at noon.  Heavy swells and unfavourable weather were encountered during the greater part of the run to Hobart, which was reached on 14th November at 7.30 am.  Having discharged cargo for Tasmanian ports and landed passengers, etc, the Delphic left for Wellington on 16th November at noon.  Fine weather was met with for the remainder of the voyage.

 

She brought the following passengers for Wellington :--Third-class—Misses Barr, Croft, Haddy, Hennessy, Ledbrook, Lee, Nyham, Wise, Wilson, Oldridge, Mesdames Haddy, Wahren, Wilson and infant; Wise, Jonson, Captain M’Intyre, Messrs Cooper, Craig (2), Foster, Gilbert, Gilbank, Haddy (2), Harbottle, James, Jay, Brosnan, Ledbrook (3), Macpherson, Millett, Nyham, Potts, Pritchard, Palmer, Rowlands, Stevenson (2), Spearing, Wise, Thornton, Walker, Wahren, Wilson, Keyes (2).

 

The voyage was uneventful, and no ice or wreckage was seen.  The usual entertainments were held at intervals.  Particulars of her cargo have already been published.

Rescue at sea

 

Yesterday morning whilst fishing off Wairakei in the launch Active Mr Millett had a very severe seizure of the heart, which rendered him powerless to manage his boat, and no one else being in the boat he was placed in a very awkward position.  He kept the engine going, but lying in a prostrate position could not steer the boat.  Mr E. J. Cullen, who was out in the yacht Gipsy, noticing a flag half-masted on the Active, went to Mr Millett’s assistance, and made the Gipsy fast to the Active.  A very heavy sea sprang up, which parted the tow-line twice, and after considerable difficulty Mr Cullen safely brought the two boats over the bar and anchored them in Pilot Bay, where Mr Millett was taken ashore and attended to.  Much praise is due to Mr Cullen, and Master M. Keefe who was in the Gipsy with him, for their praiseworthy action in rendering assistance to Mr Millett.
