PEMBROKESHIRE CAPTAIN'S TRAGIC DEATH. Deep regret will be felt in South Wales shipping circles generally at the news of the tragic death at Valparaiso, as the result of an accident, of Captain Llewellyn Owen Llewellyn, of Dinas Cross, Pembrokeshire, and master of the Welsh- owned ship Celtic Monarch. It appears that the Celtic Monarch was on a voyage from Anto- fogasfca for Hamburg, and when in the South Pacific Ocean in September last she was over- taken by a heavy gale, in which she sustained extensive damage, and lost numerous spars and sails. Captain Llewellyn decided to put back to port for repairs, and on September 26th the ship arrived at Valparaiso, where it was found on survey that she was so badly damaged that she was declared a total loss. All the crew were discharged with the exception of the master, who remained by the ship. Very meagre details are yet to hand concerning the accident which caused Captain Llewellyn's death, but from these it would seem that he was working at the chain cable when by some unexplained cause it began to pay out very rapidly and entirely took charge. The chain struck the captain with terrific force, and his injuries were so serious that death resulted. Captain Llewellyn had been in the service of Messrs. R. Hughes Morgan and Co., the owners of the Celtic Monarch, for about four years, and during that time he had occupied the position of master of the one vessel, and the owners deeply deplore the loss of a very capable and experienced shipmaster. Prior to joining Messrs. R. Hughes Morgan and Co. the deceased served as master with Messrs. J. M. Campbell and Sons, of Glasgow, and was in command of that firm's fine ship Dalcairvie. Captain Llewellyn has a brother serving as an officer on the Do- minion liner Dominion, and the sad intelligence of his brother's death was conveyed to him before the liner sailed from the Mersey for Canada. When the owners of the Celtic Monarch re- ceived the cable informing them of Captain Llewellyn's death they cabled to their Valparaiso agents instructing them to make all the necessary arrangements for the captain's funeral. Some four week's must elapse before the owners can receive letters from their agents giving them full details of the accident. d
