Recommendations of the Select Committee principally involve disallowing certain persons from claiming compensation, while awarding 150 to Dr. Carr ('at present an inmate of the Lunatic Asylum, Yarra Bend') for providing surgical services to the wounded.
The Minutes of Evidence record the testimony of Resident Goldfields Commissioner Robert Rede regarding Bentley's Hotel, a highly informative record of the tumultuous events running into five pages. Other testimonies include those of Gilbert Andrew Amos, Inspector Charles Jeffreys Carter, George Crossley Smith, Inspector Maurice Frederick Ximenes, and Inspector Gordon Evans.
