The following article appeared in The West Australian newspaper on Wednesday 9 Oct 1901:
THE DEATH OF ROBERT BARTLETT. COLLAPSE OF A CRANE.
The circumstances surrounding the death of the labourer Robert Bartlett, who was instantaneously killed on October 1 at the new Supreme Court buildings, through the collapse of portion of a crane, were further inquired into before the District Coroner, Dr. Black, yesterday morning. The inquiry had been, adjourned from the previous day for expert evidence. Mr. Phillips appeared to watch the proceedings on behalf of the contractors, Messrs. Vincent and Son, and Sergeant McCarthy conducted the inquiry.
W. H. Grainger, Chief Government Architect, said that after the accident he made an examination of the crane. He thought the accident was caused by the lifting of the two legs bearing against the pin in the king-bolt, owing to the dtawing over slightly of the mast. It was very rarely that any strain of that kind occurred, and, in fact, if he had not actually seen the nature of it, he should have said the occurrence was utterly impossible. He did not attach any blame to the contractors. He had examined the crane a few days before the occurrence, and found everything in first-rate condition. By the Coroner : He did not think it would have made any difference if the key had been the full size of the slot in the king-bolt. The Coroner: Could the exercise of any reasonable amount of care and foresight have averted the occurrence of this accident? Witness: I certainly do no think, so. I think the crane was admirable in every way. It was well erected, and fit to do its work. Continuing, he said that the accident was most extraordinary. He had had thirty years of varied experience in many classes of work, and had never seen the same thing occur before, and had never known of a similar occurrence. He thought a long king-bolt was better than a short one to minimise any
risk of stripping: the present one was of medium size. A crane like the one in question, which had a "jib" 61ft. in length, radius 48ft., height of mast 20ft., and distance from 'the end of the "jib" 'to the stone 38ft., could work up to a radius of 50ft., and carry four tons with a proper margin of safety. He had not examined the pin through the king-bolt. He had notified the contractors that four tons was the maximum weight to be lifted. The jury, after a short retirement, returned and stated, through their fore-
man, that they would like further information regarding the construction of the crane. The Coroner accordingly further adjourned the inquest to half-past 9a.m. on Friday morning.2

On 11 October 1901 in The West Australian:
THE SUPREME COURT FATALITY. MIGHT HAVE BEEN PREVENTED. THE JURY'S FINDING.
The adjourned inquest concerning the death of the laborer, Robert Bartlett, who was crushed to death by a falling crane at the now Supreme Court building on October 1, was concluded this morning, at the Coroner's Court, before Dr. Black and a jury. Mr. Phlillips appeared on behalf of the contractors, Messrs. R. P. Vincent and Co. Further expert evidence was given by Arthur D. Bell, civil engineer, and W. D. Campbell (recalled), and the jury, after a lengthy retirement, brought in the follow ing verdict: — 'We find that Robert Bartlett met his death .... from fractures of the skull and other portions of the body. Whilst unable to speak definitely as to the immediate cause of the accident, we consider that, had the crane been properly tested in varying positions by an expert, the accident might not have happened.3

The following article appeared in the Western Mail on Saturday, 19 Oct 1901:
THE DEATH OF ROBERT BARTLETT.
The adjourned inquest regarding the death of Robert Bartlett, who was killed on October 1 at the new Supreme Court buildings, through the collapse of portion of a crane, was concluded before the District Coroner on the morning of October ll. Mr . Phillips appeared on behalf of the contracfors Messrs. Vincent and Son. Further expert evidence regarding the construction of the crane was called. Mr. Arthur Dillon Bell, civil engineer, gave an explanation as to how the accident might have occurred, and said that
he had examined the crane, and considered it well constructed for the purposes for which it was used. It was of the proper type, and was reasonably set for that class of work. He did not think any ordinary foresight could have averted the accident. Mr. W. D. Campbell, recalled, said that the crane had been used to lift about ten different blocks of stone after the new "jib" was put up before the occurrence. The blocks would each weigh from three and a half to four tons. The jury found, that deceased had met his death from fracture of the skull and injuries to other portions of the body. To the verdict was added theFix this text following rider :- Whilst unable to speak definitely of the immediate cause of the accident, we consider that had the crane been properly tested in varying positions by an expert, the accident. might have been prevented." The jurymen, Messrs. S. Barbour foreman, William Broadhurst, and Thomas Henry Bradley generously gave £5, the whole of the fees they had received for their attendance on three occasions, to the widow of the deceased.4
