Arthur Livingston, the son of Mr H. Livingston (provincial auditor), was found having acccidentally drowned in Sydney Harbour in June 1897, soon after arriving in Sydney. He had travelled to Sydney (on June 2nd from Dunedin to Wellington on the “Tarawera”, and from Wellington to Sydney on the “Talune” arriving on June 13th) because it was thought that a warmer climate would be beneficial for attacks of giddiness to which he was subject. The inquest returned an open verdict, since no evidence had been given as to a possible cause for his drowning.
