ANOTHER CAPTAIN DROWNED AT BARRY DOCK, HARROWING DISCOVERY BY DECEASED'S SON BODY FLOATING IN THE WATER. At Barry Dock Police-court on Tuesday morning last, an inquest was held by Mr E. B. Reece, district coroner, and a jury, of whom Mr W. Liles was foreman, touching the sad death of Mr Samuel Willey, aged 63, master of the steamer Camsew, of Penzance, Cornwall, whose body was found floating in Barry Dock that morning. William John Willey, of Hayle, Cornwall, son of the deceased, and seaman on board the Carnsew, said the steamer arrived at Barry Dock on the previous Sunday morning, and lay at the south side of the dock. Deceased left the ship on Monday afternoon about 3.30, and after he left the vessel was moved to the north side of the dock. De- ceased possibly did not know of this. His father not returning, witness made enquiries, and on going ashore a second time, about eight on Tuesday morning, he saw deceased in the water between No. 5 and No. 6 tips. William Young, of 6, Fryatt-street, Barry Dock, said he met deceased about six o'clock on Monday afternoon, and they spent the evening together. At 10.30 p.m. he accompanied deceased to the dock, and saw him as far as No. 2 tip. Deceased knew that the vessel had been moved to the north side, and remarked he could find the ship himself. Nicholas Couch, mate of the steamer Carnsew, deposed to recovering the body from the water. There was a slight bruise on the cheek, but no other mark of injury. Dock-constable Guy Franks gave evidence of examining the body, and finding £ 10 7s 9d in money, a watch and chain, the ship's papers, and other articles. A verdict of Accidentally drowned, whilst trying to get to the vessel" was returned, much sympathy being felt for the family of the deceased in their painful bereavement.
