ALLEGED MISCONDUCT BY A MASTER AT CARDIFF. THE CASE DISMISSED. Yesterday, at the Bristol Local Marine Board -before Captainfl Thompson and Tozar and Mr Edwards, with Mr Press as legal assessor—Win. Harries was charged with drunkenness while acting as master of the steamer Alvarton at Cardiff, on June 22nd. Mr Gerrisb prosecuted for the Board of Trade, and Mr Garter (Clifton and Carter) appeared for the defence. The case was an adjourned one. The evidence given at the previous bearing was somewhat contradictory, one part being to the effect that the master was drunk and unfit for duty, and that he ordered the vessel full speed astern when her stern was only a yard from the quay wall while entering the basin, and the other that he was not unfit for duty, and his condition might .have been attributable to drowsiness. A witness, who denied the master was unfit for duty, said the statement he signed at Cardiff was false be did not consider the man to be dead drunk.—Mr Cbrrish now called Frank Bryant, of Tudor-road, Cardiff, dock pilot, who brought the vessel into the dock. He said the captain appeared drowsy, but that was all he noticed. He saw no indications of the master being drunk or under the influence of liquor.—Mr Cbas. Hughes, assistant superintendent to the Board of Trade at Cardiff, said on the 24th of June the defendant calfed at his office and said he was sorry for what bad occurred, and he did not know what came over him. Witness had already taken statements from members of the crew as to defendant's being drunk op the 22nd,and his conversation with defendant was on this subject. Defendant asked if witness could look it over, but he replied that it was not in his hands. The statements taken had been sent to the Board of Trade, and if state- ments were made by the defendant and his officers, these should be also forwarded. Subse- quently, the officers' statements were taken and Bent to the Board of Trade. Afterwards, defen- dant and the ship's husband came and asked that the matter should be looked over. By Mr Carter The crew was about bis office the whole day—the 22nd-first complaining the wages had not been paid, and then making statements against the captain, and defendant, bearing this, said be was sorry it had'bappened. Mr Thomas Baker, of the Board of Trade Office at Cardiff, said be heard defendant told be had been complained of as having been drunk at Cardiff, and ou two oc- casions before arriving there. He said the com- plainant's application to the master before arrival was false, and he was sorry the other matter had occurred. He did not know what came over him.—Mr Carter argued that the case had not been proved. The captain bad to be con- victed of gross act of misconduct," and this certainly had not been made cut. Defendant never intended it to be understood he was ex- pressing sorrow for being drunk, He was sorry that these difficulties and complaints bad arisen. He had been on duty for 48 hours, and was very tired when the pilot took charge. The board found that the defendant was pot proved guilty of any gross acts of misconduct or drunkenness.
