A YOUNG SAILOR DROWNED AT BARRY DOCK. At the Barry Dock Hotel, Barry Dock. on Mon- day last, Mr. E. B. Reece, district coroner, con- ducted an inquest touching the death of Gustav Ladd, a German sailor, but who lives in Sweden, who met with his death by drowning at Barry Dock on Saturday last.—William Matthias Thomas said he was mate of the ss. Thomas Turnbull, of Whitby. and lived at St. Brevils. Deceased waff one of the crew of the same vessel, and was 23 years of age. On Saturday evening, at about six o'clock, after witness had had tea, he went on deck, and heard someone shout that a maN. had fallen overboard. He went forward with a life- buoy, and then heard that deceased had sunk- From what he could learn deceased had taken some- one ashore in the boat, and that after, with tbØ aid of one of the men on deck, he had tied a rope to the boat he was heard to fall into the water. He saw the deceased forty minutes before; he was quite sober, and the ship had only just arrived in port. The dock police after- wards grappled for the body, which was found by seven o'clock. There was a mark on the head and face, which suggested that the deceased had fallen on to the boat, striking his headl and con- sequently falling into the water in an unconscious condition, did not rise again.—John Phillips, fire- man said he passed a rope for deceased to attach the boat to the vessel, and, returning in a few minutes afterwards, saw him in the water. He had no time to throw him a line. The ferry boat man endeavoured to catch him by the clothing before he sank by means of a boathook.—James Cook and Dock-constable Franks having given evidence, a verdict of Accidentally drowned wo* returned.
