[Pez United Press Association.] Auckland, October 80. Inspector Cullen was informed by wire that Captain Ferry's boat was still missing. It contains seven of a crew, fire being Chinese passengers. It is thought the missing boat has gone to Ahipara. A light southerly wind would take them in that direction, and where a landing could be effected with safety. There are 27 survivors now at Omapere. The meagre particulars regarding the Ventnor casualty are due to thei inaccessibility of Hokianga. There is infrequent communication, and newspapers so far have been dependent ton the reports o* their country correspondents. From the fact that nothing further has been reported, there is good reason to fear that the loss of the fourth boat is^correct. Later. A wire from Omapere received late yesterday states that there seems a reasonable possibility that theVentnor's missing boat has been picked up by the scow Hawk. Westport, October 30. Captain Ferry, of the wrecked steamer Ventnor, was a native of Glasgow, and his widow and family reside at Southampton. The Ventnor was insured for between £45,000 and £50,000 On her fist voyage, twelve months ago, she was stranded on the. rocks inJapanese waters for 24 hours. Her coal freight was paid as charterers by the Admiralty on completion of the loading, and the charter of the steamer expired with the wreck.
