"An Eye Witness" m the Melbourne •« Argus," giving a description of the recent colliery disaster at the A. A. Company's mine, says :— -" At the pit's month there have been no wailing and lamentation since the actual occurence of the disaster, but one pathetic sight is i to be witnessed day after dap. Each morning three women, whose husbands are among the unfortunates entombed, arrive on the spot with their children, they have already dressed m black. They bring with them flowers and baskets containing their lunch, and there they remain until nightfall, seated upon a log, and gazing down the pit's mouth. As tbp men who have formed the shift below reaoh the surface the first to accost them are thesethree patienjfc watchers, who ply them with inquiries as to the progress of tbe work, and receive always the same cheerless answer. The wife of one of the entombed men has a firm conviction that her husband will turn up m safety, as he hag been m several mining accidents before, and it is impossible as y@t to make her realise the truth. She fias gone bo far as to assure her children of their father's return shortly, and they run out to meet the clergyman as he goes his round and inform him that 'Dad has not come back yet.' Lord Oarrington personally visited the mine and remained below for nearly a couple of bourj, afterwards paying visis to the bereaved families. It was noticeable that as he drove away the men refrained from cheering him, but simply lifted their hats silently m farewell.
