JACK AND HIS "GROG." CHARGE AGAINST A CTEAMER CAPTAIN. The Seamen's Chronicle for this week stg.tes that it has received numerous letters from the" crew of the St. Eonans, a steamer belonging- to Messrs. Furness and Co., West. Hartlepool, complaining that the commander was regularly permitting the sale of large quantities of in- toxicating liquors to the crew. One olithe letters is given in full, and states that on June 17, when the ship left the tidal basin, London, ali the men turned up sober," "but before we got many hours out the sailors got rather too much drink. So it continued, one man^ having as much as three and four bottles of whisky in one week. One man had four bottles in two days to my knowledge," On receiving these letters the editar of the Chronicle and the general secretary of the Seamen's Union waited on the captain, who, on learning the business, said, "You can do what you well -oLeass." and dismissed the interviewers. Aft the latter left the ship the chief *iScer toM them he had just had the sack because he had reprimanded the captain, as he "i-uld not get the men to work, and "if we had bad-bad weather God knows what would have happened/' The bo'sun also said he knew of 57 bottles of whisky that had been sold in a five weeks voyage at 3s. a bottle, the liquor having paid no duty, and probably cost Is. 4d. a bottle. | If the charges now stated are true (concludes the editor) we would like to know what the temperrfn< e oters 111 West Harilepoel think of Mr. JJiv res 3 allowing his '•« J- be turne 'into drma rg shebeens. '.U-* by ithf way, had jivle »r no wages to i*>\w w.b«u: fciu wer< ],> 1 cfc a-t Tidal B'ard their irire- and families are nearly starving." i
