CARDIFF SHIPOWNERS' ASSOCIATION. Annual Meeting. The annual meeting of the above association was held at the chamber of commerce, Cardiff, yesterday. The annual report, which was read and adopted, dealt with the principal matters which have occupied the attention of the association during the year. Alluding to the Merchant Shipping Bill the report records that this bill was pronounced by the association "to be one of the most ill-advised and incom- petent attempts at legislation 'that had ever been the brought forward," and reference is also made to efforts put forth by shipowners generally, resulting in the withdrawal of the measure and the appoint- ment of a Royal Commission on the whole subject. Regret is expressed that a representative from the Bristol Channel was not appointed on the com- mission. On the question of dock extension, allusion is made to the passing of the Barry Dock and Railway Bill, in favour of which the associa- tion passed a resolution, and a hope expressed that when the work, now rapidly proceeding, is completed the detentions and serious inconveniences to which the trade has been subjected for a considerable time past will bd done away with. Other matters mentioned in the report are the incorporation of the chamber, bunker coal, the load-line com- mittee, seamen's wages, the Manchester Ship Canal, quarantine, engagement of crews, and the local shipwrights' strike. The annual statement of accounts was laid before the committee and passed. Mr Tellefsen was elected chairman, Mr C. V. Harrison vice-chairman, Mr W. L. Hawkins secretary, and Mr W. Williams treasurer. Col. Hill Was appointed to represent the association on the executi ve council of the chamber o: ship Col. Hill, in giving an account of the work done by the executive council during the year, made a speech which it was regretted could not go before the public owing to the absence of the representatives of the press, and a resolution was carried to the effect that in future the reporters be invited to attend the annual meetings.
