The Viscount Thaarlton, in a privately funded expedition, has reportedly discovered the lost Wells of Seldon north of the city of Polodaar. Thaarlton, travelling in an aerial flyer of his own design, the HMS Sunfish, was fired on by natives worshipping at the Wells. Unable to obtain a sample from the wells, the Viscount and his crew took photographs and mapped the area, before being attacked by skrill-riding High Martians. After tactically withdrawing, the Sunfish returned to Syrtis Major, where the Viscount was greeted by a delegation from the Royal Martian Geographical Society. It is believed that the Viscount is seeking to return to the wells with funding provided by the RMGS.
The Gondoliers, the latest play to open at the Royal Opera House, Syrtis Major, met with tragedy last night when a disturbed man fired a revolver at Nigel Claymont, the company's lead actor, killing him instantly. The disturbed man was apprehended by patrons and turned over to constables of the Royal Martian Constabulary. Officials of the RMC have learned the identity of the assassin, one Umberto Cuomo, an Italian national who had arrived on Mars only two days earlier. It is believed that Mr. Cuomo, a native of Venice, was disturbed by the comedic portrayal of Venetian gondoliers in the opera and had been responsible for several accidents which have plagued the company since the opening of the opera. Mr. Claymont, of 19 Park Row, Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London, will honoured by a special mass to be held tomorrow at 10 am, in the Syrtis Major Cathedral. Mr. Claymont leaves behind a wife and two children. All shows have been cancelled for the remainder of the week, in respect for the late Mr. Claymont.
