I SEAMEN'S ADVANCE NOTES. DEPUTATION TO MR. MUNDELLA. It has been finally arranged that Mr. J. n. Wilson, M.P., and other members of Parliament will introduce a deputation, repsessnting the various branches in the kiajdom or' the National Ijnion of Boarding Masters aud Tradespeople to Mr. Mundella, President of the Board of Trade1, to ask him for his support in the introduction ot a measure by which boarding masters and trades- people will be enabled, to recover payment for food, necessaries, and outfit supplied to seamen, t.he present system of advance notes ha. viag-been declared by the Court of Queeqjj Bench to be useless. 1 At a meeting of boarding masters it was deeided to send a letter to the Shipowners' Association asking them to receive a deputation for the pur- pose of settling the mode of payment of seamen's debts which should be adopted in the port of Cardiff until such time as a proper legal advance note was provided by the Government, The boarding musters have declared tuemselve^ ready to give a guarantee to re-fund auy money which may be paid OIl behalf of sea aeu who may depart t their ships before leaving the port. A COMPLETE: DENIAL. A Western 3lail representative had a conversation with Mr. J. Harrison, the local secretary of the Sailors and Firemen's Union on Tuesday, m the course of which the latter gave a complete denial to the statement of Mr. Jobson (Messrs. Gueret's nianager), .published in the H estern. Mad on Monday, that the crew of the steamier Allonby was "dragged off the ship by the Unionists at Barry," and that many of the iueu are crvingf their eyes out because they have lost their situations. The men, Mr. Harrison stated, had given notice to leave the ship dur- ing the homeward voyage, and whun the Allonby reached Harry she left before the Union officials came Oil the scene at all. With regard to the allegation that Messrs. Gueret have paid 28s. a week for a year past," this, Mr. Harrison j states, is also incorrect, for as recently as last Christmas they paid 30s. to their men. and only a month or two previously they even paid 32s. 6d. "We never pay off our men," observed Mr. Jobson, in addition. True," replied Mr. Harrison a but why? Because this avoids1 the engagement of riggers for deck work and other hands for duty below during cargoing, the contract for which costs on average about £ 16 or £ 18 per cargo, whereas the same work done by the crew on day wages costs scarcely £5 or £ 6." The crew of the Allonby, Mr. Harrison went on, came off voluntarily, and would not go back on any consideration under the full rates. It is stated that the chief mate (Mr. Hill) and the second mate of the steamer Hurworth, belonging to Messrs. Ropner and Co., have been peremptorily discharged by the mast at Penarth Dock owing to their refusal to accept the federation ticket. It is said, also, that Mr. Morris, the chief officer of the steamship Harlsey, belonging to the same owners. and lying at Cardiff, has also been similarly dealt with on the same grounds. The steamship Bengar, was the only boat which signed articles at Barry Dock on Tuesday. and the Union rates of wages being observed, no resistance was offered.
