Collision In Cardigan Bay


Collision In Cardigan Bay BOARD OF TRADE INQUIRY. The Board of Trade inquiry was opened on Wednesday at Carnarvon touching collision which took place in Cardigan BaJ on the 4th March last between the sailing vessel "Dinorwic" and the steamship "Gal- atea," resulting in the loss of one life from the former. The court consisted of D* Taylor Morgan and Mr John Hughes, two of the county magistrates, and Rear-Ad- miral G. T. H. Boyes, and Captains S. Brooks and W. B. Bigley as nautical asses- sors. The Board of Trade was represented by Mr Charles A. Jones, and Mr Millard appeared for the master of the "Galatea." Mr Jones said that the "Dinorwic" was a wooden vessel, built at Portdinorwic in 1862, and rigged as a schooner. She was registered at Carnarvon, her registered tonnage being 98-68, and was owned by Y- Robert Griffith, Chapel street, Amlwch. She left Par, Cornwall, on the 25th February, on a voyage to Runcorn, with a cargo of 190 tons of china clay. Owing to adverse weather she had to put into Falmouth, and afterwardsWaterford,leaving the latter port on March 3rd, the weather being fine, with a gentle breeze from the north. On the night of the 4th she was off Bardsey Island, the master (William Evans) being in charge on deck, and was making about three knots an hour., Shortly after half-past eleven the "Galatea" struck the schooner on the starboard bow in the forepart of the rigg- ing. The master of the schooner andall the other witnesses on that side would say that on the part of the schooner there was no alteration of course, this being really the only point of difference between them and the master of the "Galatea." The lamps were burning brightly, and when she struck the steamer put her helm hard to port. The mate of the schooner was drowned, but in regard to that there was no blame at- tached to anyone, because every effort was made to save life. After the collision the schooner was towed to Portmadoc by the "Galatea." The "Galatea" was a steamer, rigged as a schooner, registered in London, and owned by Mr Harrison, of Great Tower street. She had a general cargo of 560 tons, and was bound from Treport to Gas- ston; and the second officer, who was an charge, attributed the collision to the schooner having altered her course. William Evans, the master of the schooner, denied that the schooner altoned her course at all. Captain Grant, master of the "Galatea," then gave his version of the occurrence. The evidence of this witness had not COB- eluded when the court adjourned till this (Thursday) morning, when the examination was proceeded with.
