Hi,

From Trove.

Mar., 1905. William Ninnes, recently a gold miner of Charters Towers, QLD and 60 years old was not given permission to land at Wellington, N.Z. He arrived on board the "Waikaro", and under the N.Z. "Paupers Act", was considered to old to work and had less than 25 pounds in his possession.

He claimed to have a son, a draper and a daughter, a barmaid living in Wellington. He was sent back to Sydney on the same vessel and taken into care by the Salvation Army until his family in Queensland were notified.

Cheers,

Alan Mac.
