Around Penarth & Cogan. -+- _C- TRADE AT THE DOCK. At Penarth Dock last week activity continued to be displayed at the tips, the quantity of coal placed on board being nearly 50,000 tons. On Monday a record was effected at this dock, so far as rapid loading in the port of Cardiff is con- cerned, a ship arriving on the morning tide, and having taken about 1,200 tons on board she left on the same tide. CASUALTY AT PENARTH DOCK. On Saturday while the ss. Ranzani, of New- castle, commanded by Captain Saunderson, was leaving Penarth Dock, bound for Barcelona, she collided with the quay wall, and was so damaged that she quickly filled with water, and settled down the EastiMUd. THE ACCIDENT TO A STEAMER AT PENARTII.—LETTER FROM MR. BEASLEY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES DAILY SEWS." SIB,—The statement in the South Wales Daily News of to-day with respect to the accident to the steamship Ranzini at Penarth Dock on Saturday is inaccurate. The facts are thas on Saturday after- noon when she left her berth in the dock to pro- ceed to sea, the seamen had too much way on her. When about to enter the lock, and before she could be stopped, she damaged her bows with her anchor, which was hoisted close up to the hawse pipe. The plate being under water, the captain was recommended either to stop in the basin or to go on to the East Mud for repairs. The captain preferred the latter, and proceeded to sea by the following tide.-I am, &c., H. BEASLEY, Cardifl, May 26th. (Manager) T.V.R. VISIT OF THE REV. C. SILVESTER HORNE, M.A. The Rev. C. Silvester Horne, M.A.. of Kensington Congregational Church, London, is announced to preach on Tuesday evening next at the Penarth Congregational Church, Windsor-road,. Mr. Horse, notwithstanding his youth, has already become one of the recognised leaders of Congre- gregationalism in London, and his name and abilities are known throughout the country. DROWNED AT THE DOCK. On Saturday afternoon, at the Penarth Police- station, Mr. E. B. Reece, coroner, held an inquiry into the circumstances attending the death of John Casey, a married man, donkeyman, about 34 years old, hailing from Waterford, who fell into Penarth Dock on the night of the 25th ult. while attempting to get aboard the s.s. Cardiff Castle, lying under No. 10 tip.-Charles Baker, of Grange- town, a fireman aboard the same ship, deposed that on the night in question, about 9.45, he was in company with deceased, and went aboard first over the gangway, and in leading the way said, "Be careful, John, in coming up the ladder, and received in reply, I'm all right." He then proceeded to the engine-room, and at 4 o'clock next morning went to call the deceased as previously requested, but could not find him. He next went ashore, think- ing deceased was sleeping in the subway, and, not finding him there, commenced, in conjunction with the crew, dragging the dock. Later on the dock policeman began grappling, and ultimately found the body between 3 and 4 o'clock the same day.—Josiah Saunder, dock policeman (sworn) stated that deceased had no marks on the body, and must therefore have pitched clear into the water.—A verdict of Found drowned was re- turned. HOTEL ROBBERY. At a very early hour on Saturday morning, St. Fagan's Hotel. Penarth, was entered by means of a fanlight at the back of the premises, and the thief or thieves effecting an entrance to the bar through a sliding window, robbed the till, taking £ 2 in silver, and all the coppers. They also took several half-pint bottles of whisky. Information was given to the polio this morning, and a clue to the perpetrators has been discovered, a handkerchief containing some coppers and several empty whisky bottles having been found on Penarth Cliffs.
