I The Llangorse Boating Fatality. To the Editor of the COUNTY TIMES. t Sir,—The reports of the above which have appea red in your paper seem to indicate the following :— t (l) That when the boat sank it was in ;+ likely it would get stove in" by poles used for fishing purposes it is still less probable that the holes found to exist after the accident could have been caused in the shallow water where the party tried to land, otherwise it would not again have been taken into deep water. (2) That the damaged boat was not examined by the jury, nor was its actual age inquired into. (3) That the type of boat used on IS IiIjbui.ii.OiO XOl' use on such open water as Llangorse Lake. With regard to (l) and (2), may it not With regard to (l) and (2), may it not be that the young woman becoming alarmed at the first shipment of water, when standing up, placed her feet directly on the boat's planks, which- possibly through their age were not sufficiently strong to carry the imposed weight, and therefore gave way ? Whether the boat was stove in or broken by pressure from the inside could probably have been determined by its examination. Respecting (3). safety obviously lies in the periodical examination and licensing of all craft offered on hire, by some public official who is competent to judge their suitability as regards design and— 1, cl which is even more essential their general seaworthiness.
