THE BARRY DOCK COMPANY AND THEIR CONTRACTOR. The claim by the executors of the late Mr T. A. Walker, contractor of Barry Dock, against the com- pany will probably amount to £150,000. Under the provisions of the contract Mr J. Wolfe Barry, the company's engineer, is to be arbitrator in the event of the claim being pursued. No presentation of the made to the Barry Company.â We are now in a position to state that for some time the executors of the late Mr T. A. Walkerâwho died in November last-have been actively engaged in preparing the items of their claim against the Barry Company, and several days ago a party of engineers, including one gentleman who has been knighted in lecognition of his services, and Mr Fletcher Moulton, Q.C., one of the most eminent scientific barristers of the day, visited the dock and railways, with the object of preparing evidence in support of Mr Walker's demand. The result of their investigations shovved that the dock was nearly one-third larger than originally contracted for, and there was also a large number of other extras not named in the specifica- tions. We understand that the claim, which it is authoritavely stated considerably exceeds £100,000, will shortly be lodged with the solicitors of the com- pany.â"W.M."
