ICE IN THE SEINE. Swansea Overloading Case Defenoe. At Swansea Police Court on Saturday, Captain Thomas Wilk-y, s.s. Treleigh, was charged with unlawfully allowing the vessel to be overloadoo so as to submerge the loid line. It was stated by Mr. Talfourd Strick, line. it was ?;tqted bv who prosecuted, that the vessel reached Plymouth from Rouen on January 21st, and was then found by the Board of Trade officer to be overloaded, after allowances, to the extent of three inches—or about 21 tons. Mr. R. C. W. Bell (Board of Trade sur veyor, Plymouth) was called, and admitted in cross-examination he did not allow for the water in the fore peak he was satisfied that it would have lwen immaterial. The case for the defence was that defen- dant loaded gypsum in bulk when the Seine was full of ice. The captain signed a bill of lading for 330 tons, his ordinary cargo, and the ice packing up against the sides of the ship prevented the officers. from seeing the marks on t.he sidfe. Overloading was admitted, but negligence was denied. The captain was called to speak to the above facts, and .said the Seine was full of ice for 20 miles below him. He had not the least idea when he left. Rouen that he was overloaded. Edmund Tiltman. chief officer, and Wm. R. Seymour, chief engineer, were called, the latter estimating the water in the tanks would lower the v eisryel an inch mean. The captain was fined £ 20, and seven guineas were allowed for costs.
