BOARD OF TRADE INQUIRY AT SWANSEA. [Continued from Page 6.] On Wednesday Alderman HowelWatkins, J.P., and Mr. J. R. Leaver, J.P., assisted by Captain Dyer, R.N., Captain Cousens, and Captain Parsell, nautical assessors, resumed at the Guildhall, Swansea, an inquiry as to the loss of the ketch Three Sisters, of Cardigan, which was run down off Mumbles Head on July 5th last year. Mr. Talfourd Striek represented the Board of Trade, and Mr. Griffith Jones (barrister) appeared for the master (Mr. John Thomas) and the relatives of the two men who lost their lives in her. Mr. Vanderpump was for the master and the chief officers of the 8.8. Tweed, of Glasgow, the colliding steamer. John Brighton, chief engineer of the Tweed, produced the log. showing the orders he received from the bridge just before and after the collision. Murdo Morrison, able seaman on board the Tweed, corroboratel1 pre- vious evidenoe to the effect that the ketch must have broached up in the wind, notwithstanding that Rhe was only going two knots an hour against.. strong tide, and thus came across the Tweed's bows. This was all the evidence for the Board of Trade, and then Mr. Strick submitted the questions of the Board of Trade. Mr. Vanderpump then called evidence on be half of the Tweed Mr. Alexander D. Wilson managing director of the Phoenix. Asbestos Manu- facturing Company, of Glasgow, who was a pas- senger at the time on board the Tweed, spoke to the fog, to the Tweed going dead slow in con- sequence, to not hearing foghorns from any other vessel, the sighting of the ketch as she was cross- ing the Tweed's bows, and only a ship's length off, and so close that though everything was done it was impossible to avoid her. Just then he saw the man lit the helm of the ketch let go the tiller The Three Sisters,he said.really stiuck the Tweed, which was jlc.ing- full speed astern, the blow beinv; a very gentle sort of rub. Every effort was after- wards made to save life, and nothing more could have been done to avoid the collision. Mr. Nicholas Smellie, another passenger, gave similar evidence, after which counsel addressed the court, which then adjourned till yesterday.
