  • 28 Jun 1948, TRADE WITH INDIES First Ship In New Service The first vessel to engage in the trade between Western Australia and the Netherlands East Indies since the lifting of the ban on Dutch shipping by the Waterside Workers' Federation, the steamer Maetsuycker arrived at Fremantle yesterday from Singapore and Batavia. She brought little cargo, but nearly all her passenger accommodation was filled. Capt. J. W. Zuyderhoudt, master of the Maetsuycker, said that it was expected that on her southward voyages from Singapore the vessel would call at Java ports and Macassar as cargo required, and on the northward run from Fremantle would call at a North-West port to load sheep and then go direct to Singapore. The ship is owned by Royal Inter-Ocean Lines, of Hong Kong, formed about a year ago by Dutch shipping interests. Capt. Zuyderhoudt could not say whether, in the event of the present venture being successful, another vessel would be allocated to the service.8
  • 14 Jan 1950, COLOUR SCHEME WAS FATAL ?
    MELBOURNE, January, 13. The 11,000 ton liner, Niew Holland, was a cable length out- side the deep dredge channel when she and a fishing launch collided on December 18, the pilot told a Marine Court of Inquiry today. This was normal practice.
    Other than deep draught vessels, only five per cent of ships used the channel.
    Mr A. H. Mann, for the Marine Board, said that the launch was painted green, or a greenish blue, with a white cabin top.
    It might have been difficult to see in the choppy sea.
    Both the master, Captain Johannes Willem Zuyderhoudt and the Port Phillip pilot in charge, Captain William Graham Balharrie, said they could offer no explanation, apart from tins possible camouflage, for their failing to see the launch.
    They had noticed several other small boats during their trw from Port Melbourne.
    Two men lost their lives in the collision: They were David Speechley, 74, on holiday from Sydney, and Ray Comben, 50, of Victoria Street, Williamstown.
    The court adjourned until Monday.9
  • 17 Jan 1950, NIEUW HOLLAND COLLISON INQUIRY - Diver will tell of search on sea floor
    A DIVER who searched the sea floor after the 11,000-ton "Nieuw Holland" collided with the 26-foot launch, "Roberty lee" will give evidence to the Marine Court of Inquiry today.
    Mr H. F. Chadwick of Ashburton, the diver, found a fishing line which it is thought may have come from the capsized launch.
    The collision into which the Court is inquiring occurred off Fawkner Light, Port Phillip Bay, on December 18.
    Two occupants of the launch, David Speechley, 74, of Sydney, and Ray Comben, 50, of Victoria st, Williamstown, were killed.
    The survivor, 43-year-old Francis Raymond Speechley, owner of the "Robertylee," gave evidence yesterday.
    He said that when "Nieuw Holland" was 600 yards away from the launch she suddenly swung round towards them.
    He had no time to start the engine, so took in some anchor line and threw the slack into the" water, hoying the launch would drift out of the oncoming ship's path. Instead the launch hung in the wind.
    Knew rule
    To Mr E. H. Hudson, KC (for owners, master, officers, and pilot of "Nieuw Holland), Speechley said he knew of a Harbour Trust regulation forbidding ships to anchor in the fairway without permission.
    He did not think he had anchored in the fairway, he said.
    Captain Johannes Zuyderhoudt, master of the "Nieuw Holland," said no one on the bridge saw the collision.
    To Mr McLean, SM, president of the Court, he said he could not guarantee to miss a 26ft launch which was not seen until it was 400 yards away.
    The Court adjourned to 10am today.10
  • 5 Mar 1951, Liner speeds to save woman. Sydney, Sunday
    The Dutch liner Nieuw Holland "almost burst her boilers" to rush a dangerously ill woman to Sydney.
    The liner reached Sydney this afternoon, 24 hours ahead of time.
    The woman was Mrs. D. Warren, 35, widow, of Melbourne, who was suffering from appendicitis.
    She was returning on leave from Jakarta, where she was secretary to the United Nations delegation.
    Central district ambulance officers waited at Darling Harbor for the liner to dock.
    Captain J. W. Zuyderhoudt, master of the Nieuw Holland, said yesterday: "On Saturday Mrs. Warren's condition deteriorated and the ship's surgeon asked me to get her to Sydney as fast as possible.
    "I ordered full steam ahead, and the old ship shook as she ploughed along at 18 knots."
    Captain Zuyderhoudt said the increased speed used about £200 worth of extra fuel.11

  • 4 Mar 1922, A FICKLE MASTER MARINER "LONDON'S THE PLACE." Australia "Out of the World." The fickleness of a master-mariner bold, who spoke of Australia as being "out of the world," and declared "London's the place for me!" was the subject of the divorce petition of Gwladys Irene James, 28, before Mr. Justice Cussen in the Practice Court yesterday. Petitioner, for whom Mr. R. S. Menzies appeared, said that when she followed respondent, Percival Arthur Clifton James, 34, second mate on the British-India Steamship Company's steamer Okakrata to London, she asked him what his long absence from Australia, wife and child meant, and he replied that he was having a very good time with a little girl in Oxford-street. "Tell me all now, including where she lives," requested Mrs. James.
    "I will if you'll promise not to make a fuss," replied James. "I've not fallen so low that you need fear that I will make an exhibition of myself," said petitioner, and thereupon James gave her the information and made certain admissions, which precluded petitioner carrying the matter further. She returned with her child to Australia and sold up the home at Garden Vale that she had bought with the settlement James made upon her at the time of the marriage in November, 1910. She had since subsisted on the proceeds of the sale.
    Petitioner said she could not explain respondent's treatment of herself and their child. She could not keep him from the sea. She bought a confectionery and fancy goods business, with the object of interesting him in territorial matters, but in time he took a position on the Phosphate Company's Pukaki trading between Australia and Ocean Island. Then one day he came home and explained that he had signed on as second officer of a British-India vessel trading between England and India.
    "I was terribly upset," said petitioner to the court. "I pleaded with him. There were plenty of positions around the coast. Why leave the Australian coast ?" I asked him. "What about me and the child ?" Respondent replied, "Oh, you will be all right; you have the home." "But it takes two to make a home," pleaded petitioner. "Then," concluded petitioner, "in 1916 he went away. He continued to send me remittances, averaging £6 a month, which were insufficient to keep me and my little daughter. Cost of living was going up, and we were always short. In 1919 I went to England, with my little girl. Going up the Thames we passed his boat going to India. We waited till it came back. I left my address at the shipping office, and he called on me. I asked him to come back to Australia. He replied, "Australia is out of the world. London's the place." I then offered to go to India, but he said that that was no good. Then I learned about the girl in Oxford-Street."
    A decree nisi was granted, with costs, on the ground of misconduct. The question of alimony was reserved.21
