  • 20 Apr 1891, The coasting steamer Rose of Sharon, belonging to Mr A. O'Keefe, railway contractor, of Foster, Gippsland, which went ashore at the Franklin River about a fort night ago, was raised and floated on Thursday afternoon by Mr Alfred Johnson, submarine diver, of Fitzroy. At the time of the accident to the steamer she was laden with rails brought from Melbourne, and, in high tide, got up on the bank of the river, stem downward, and failed to right herself. Mr Johnson successfully righted the steamer about 4 o'clock on Thursday, and floated her at high tide. The contents of the vessel are safe. There was no insurance effected upon the steamer or her cargo.5
  • 27 Jul 1899, THE BAY COLLISION. COURT OF MARINE INQUIRY. A DIVER'S EVIDENCE.
    The investigation into the circumstances surrounding the collision between the steamships Edina and Excelsior in Port Phillip Bay on the 11th inst. was continued by the Court of Marine Inquiry at the Customs department yesterday, when there were present Mr. Panton, P.M. (president), and Captains Tozer and Bevis, skilled members of the board.
    Mr. W. H. Croker appeared for Captain Forbes, of the Edina, and the owners (Messrs. Howard Smith and Sons); Mr. J. C. Stewart for Captain Moore, of the Excelsior, and Messrs. Huddart, Parker, and Co., the owners; and Mr. D. Ferguson for the Marine Board, assisted by Mr. S. Wollaston.
    Samuel Johnson, engineer surveyor to the Marine Board, recalled and cross-examined by Mr. Stewart, said the damage to the Edina could not have been inflicted by that vessel running into the Excelsior. If the Edina did run into the Excelsior more damage would have been done to the port bow, although the damage which was on the starboard bow might have been inflicted as well. The shoeing of the Edina (produced) showed a filed surface on the port side, which, in his opinion, was caused by the collision and not by the friction of a wire rope.
    Stewart Patrick, master of the steamship Courier, also gave evidence.
    To Mr. Croker.—If the engineer of the Excelsior had said he could pull up that vessel from four miles an hour within from 15 to 20 seconds he (the witness) thought it was impossible to do so.
    Mr. Croker.—What speed do you think the vessel would be travelling to be pulled up in that time?
    Mr. Panton.—Yours was a monstrous calculation yesterday, Mr Croker. Did you not say that something meant 40 miles an hour, when it really meant only nine?
    Mr. Croker.—That was merely an interjection. I am now cross-examining this witness. Does the Court wish to cross-examine me?
    Mr. Panton.—Oh, I do not wish to interrupt your cross-examination.
    Mr. Croker.—Ah, that's better. (To witness).—If it were said that the Edina, travelling at the rate of four miles an hour, would cover 185ft. in five seconds, what would you say to that?
    Witness.—She would have to move very quickly to do it. (Laughter.)
    Alexander Wilson, formerly engineer in charge of ports and harbours, said he saw the Edina in dock, and, judging by the nature of the injuries, it would be impos- sible for anyone to say that the vessel was at a standstill at the time of the collision. The damage could have been done by the Excelsior swinging her tail round in the teeth of the Edina, providing the Edina was at a certain angle. The same damage however, could have been done by the Edina running into the Excelsior at a certain angle.
    Mr. Croker.—Do you remember the president asking one of the witnesses a ques- tion as to whether a steamer travelling four knots an hour would cover 185ft. in five seconds?
    Mr. Panton (indignantly).—I never put such a question, Mr. Croker. What do you mean by that, sir? Do you say I put that question?
    Mr. Croker.—If you look at the evidence you will find it.
    Mr. Panton.—No; I asked whether the steamer could be pulled up in her own length in that time.
    Mr. Croker.—Yes; it was the Excelsior, and she is 185ft. in length.
    Alfred Johnson, a deep-sea diver and mechanical engineer, examined the wreck of the Excelsior on July 17, and produced a model of the vessel, showing the nature of the damage. It was not prepared to scale. She had been cut into about 2ft. forward of the break of the poop, and the plate had been stripped off for 18ft. down to the saloon deck before the upper deck had been broken into to the extent of 6ft. Everything on deck at that point with the exception of the wheelhouse had been swept off. Both vessels must have had considerable way on and struck at a very sharp angle, because, if the Edina had been stationary, she would have cut in where she first touched at a more direct angle, and would not have had sufficient force to cut into the Excelsior's side without way on. He should say the damage done to the starboard bow of the Edina had been inflicted by the torn plate, which, acting like a barrier and slewing the Edina's stem round, would have the effect of keeping the Edina's port bow out of danger.
    To Mr. Croker.—The damage was greater further astern from the first impact. If the Excelsior was on a hard a-port helm going full speed, her quarter would have been thrown to port towards the Edina, which was the reverse of what he assumed had happened according to the nature of the damage.
    To Mr. Panton.—If the vessel had been on a hard a-starboard helm the collision could not have happened, provided also the Edina had no way on. If the Edina had had way on she might have struck any where. The filing on the Edina's shoeing might have been caused as the vessel sheered along the torn plate.
    Mr. Croker (to witness).—Thank you very much. I think you have enlightened the Court considerably.
    Mr. Panton thanked the witness for the clear manner in which he had given his evidence.
    Thomas Frederick Seeley, architect, of Geelong, was a passenger by the Excelsior. After he had heard the whistle from the Edina, subsequent to passing the Courier, he heard Captain Moore say to the helmsman "Give her two points off." The vessel then appeared to go off on the right hand (starboard).
    To Mr. Croker.—He was subpoenaed by the Marine Board to give evidence last Tuesday. Captain Bull heard his version, and then told him he would not be required. No reason was given for this.
    The Court adjourned till half-past 10 o'clock on Friday morning.6
  • 29 Aug 1899, THE BAY COLLISION. COURT OF MARINE INQUIRY. CHARGE AGAINST CAPTAIN MOORE.
    The Court of Marine Inquiry, consisting of Mr. Dobbin, P.M. (chairman), and Captains H. Goodrham and J. Garson, skilled members, met again yesterday at the Customs-house to hear a charge formulated by the Marine Board against Gilbert Moore, master of the steamer Excelsior, of "careless navigation," which "caused the foundering of the Excelsior" in Port Phillip Bay on the 11th July last.
    Mr. D. Ferguson, assisted by Mr. Spencer Wollaston, appeared for the Marine Board; Mr. H. Stewart (Malleson, England, and Stewart) for Captain Moore. Mr. W. H. Croker watched the proceedings on behalf of Captain W. C. Forbes, of the Edina.
    Charles Paulson, A.B. on the Courier on the day of the collision, said that he was acting as look-out when the Courier and the Edina were abreast of one another with a distance of a ship and half's length between them. The two ships kept on a parallel course, and the Courier took some time to pass the Edina, because the latter was going at almost the same speed as his boat.
    To Mr. Ferguson.—His vessel was going at full speed when passing the Edina, and took over 20 minutes to do so. The fog was "pretty thick" then. When passing the Excelsior the fog was not so dense, an the Excelsior seemed some five lengths distant from the Courier.
    Frederick Maitland, chief officer of the Courier on the 11th July, said that when the Courier drew up abreast of the Edina in a thick fog the ships were a ship's length (230ft.) apart. Shortly afterwards they picked up the Excelsior's whistle about three and a half to four points on the port bow, and passed her fully a quarter of a mile away.
    To Mr. Ferguson.—The Edina was going almost as fast as the Courier, which was running full speed—about 11 or 12 knots—when they passed the Edina.
    To the Chairman.—He could not say what speed the Excelsior was travelling at when the Courier passed her.
    Alfred Johnson, a deep-sea diver and mecanical engineer, said that he had made an examination of the Excelsior on the 17th July, and described the injuries sustained by that ship. The collision had probably taken place at an angle of 35deg. If the Edina had had no headway on then at the first impact she would have been driven back free of the Excelsior.
    Gilbert Moore, master of the Excelsior, deposed that he had traded between Melbourne and Geelong for 12 years, and said that the Courier and Edina usually passed his ship port to port in fine weather. He set his course at north north-east quarter east on the 11th of July, and verified the compass by land-marks astern. He was going 12 knots when it was clear, and seeing a fog was coming down sent a man to the look-out. At half-past 11 they entered the "fringe of the fog," but did not slacken speed, because he could see through the "fluffy, hazy fringe," which had the sun shining through it. About a minute later the Courier's whistle was heard three and a half to four points on the port bow, and a third of a mile away, when he caused fog signals to be sounded at intervals of a minute. On hearing the first whistle from the Edina he gave the order "Steady aport," which meant "don't go any more to port." The Edina seemed to him to be moving "pretty fast," and end on. He felt that he could not go hard a-port with success, and told the helmsman to go "hard a-starboard," but the helm took very little effect before the collison, which occurred at an angle of from 35deg. to 40deg. When the Edina shot out from the fog his ship was going five or six knots.
    To Mr. Ferguson.—Two minutes elapsed between the time he entered the fog and his meeting with the Courier. He reduced his speed two minutes after hearing the Courier's whistle to six knots an hour, which was about the time that he first heard the Edina's whistle. Immediately prior to the impact the Edina appeared to him to have starboard helm on.
    Stewart Patrick, master of the Courier on the 11th July, stated that when abreast of the Breakwater pier the Edina had gone across towards him as if going over from Sandridge. After passing the light-ship he set his course S.W. one-eighth S. He overhailed the Edina, and passed her when running 13 knots. The Excelsior was 300 yards from the Courier when he passed her.
    Mr. Stewart.—Can you tell us—supposing the Courier were running at 12 miles and then dead slow—how far she would run before you could stop her?—Yes, I recently made two experiments under those conditions, and found at the end of the first minute we had travelled 1,500ft., and at the end of the second minute 500ft. On the second occasion we slowed down to five miles an hour at the end of two minutes.
    Thomas Powell, A.B. on the Courier, said that he was at the wheel after passing the Gellibrand light-ship on the day of the collision, and corroborated Captain Patrick's evidence as to the course of the Courier. When abreast of the Edina the fog was very dense.
    This closed the evidence for the defence, and Mr. Stewart and Mr. Ferguson having addressed the Court an adjournment was made until to-day, when the decision of the Court will be announced at a quarter- past 2 o'clock.7
  • 20 Sep 1899, The inquiry into the charge of careless navigation preferred against Captain W C Torbos, master of the steamship Edina, by the Marine Board, as a result of the bay collision on July 11, when the Excelsior was sunk, was continued at the Custom House yesterday by Mr H Morrison, P.M. (president), and Captains W H Panter, R N, and J A Roberts, skilled members Mr D Ferguson appeared for the Marine Board, and Mr W H Croker for Captain Forbes. Enrico A M'Kinsay, AB, employed on board the Excelsior, Samuel Johnson, engineer surveyor to the Marine Board, and Alfred Johnson, deep sea diver, completed the list of witnesses called for the Marine Board, and Mr Croker called Patrick Vascovitch, AB on the Edina, and Alfred E Sharp, chief steward of the same vessel, for the defence. The evidence tendered was merely a repetition of that elicited in the two previous inquiries, and the Court at its rising ad journed until 10 o'clock this morning.8
