I The dredger has worked 95 hours 30 minutes, and lias raised 4.460 tons of material during the Month. An additional carpenter has been engaged Owing to the necessity for new buoys. On March 14th, the Eleanor s.s., could not see the pilot tug anywhere in attendance, consequently she came to Llanelly without a pilot. There were no pilots in attendance on hobbling duties when she arrived at Llanelly. consequently she went aground, On March 20, 1897, the Teesdale,' s.s., with pilot R. Richards on board, was unable to leave his pilot, as the tug was not in the bay the Teesdale s.s. Was conseanentlv delaved 12 hours in the nav.  1 submit a letter from Messrs. John Waddell and Sons with reference to the "Albertina" s.s., being Uaable to obtain a Pilot. I have enquired into the circumstances and find that on the particular day in question the Hero steam Tug put Pilots on Vessels in Caldy Roads on the morning tide, and then after towing certain Vessels to sea, returned to Burry Port at 8.10 p."n. The Captain of the Albertina stated that he came to the Bar about l hours after high water. The Hero proceeded to the Bay and the Pilot was put on Board the Abertina" at 5.50, or 10 miuutes after high Water. This is undoubtedly a clear failure in the Performance of the duties by the Tugs and for which they are paid. On the 8th inst., the I Advent" ,.s., came to Llanelly, light, drawing 11 feet, the height "ofl tide being 17ft. 6in. The pilot persuaded the captain to take a tug. 1 do not consider this to have been Necessary as the vessel had a clear margin of six feet six inches under her keel. The captain com- Plained to me, personally, and said he was a stranger, j\nd was astonished at the facility of approach to the harbour and any necessity for a tug. I have Previously complained of some of the pilots requisitioning tugs when absolutely unecessary. I see vessels often going out without on considerably jess margin and can understand a vessel like the "Geneva" with only one foot of a margin and about 2,000 tons of cargo, requiring a tug, but iiot this vessel referred to above. I recommend that the pilotage in this case be reduced to one half. Mr. John Treharne boarded the Tivyside s.s., in the Great Western Dock on 5th April, the vessel having come in from sea and docked, he then got the captain to sign the pilotage note, as having boarded the vessel in Limit No, 1, and had 11.ever been on the vessel at all within the naviga- tion from sea to dock. I submitted the conditions of contract for the construction of the dock fo legal Certification on the 15th March, Those require Printing and binding with the specification which has been submitted to the printer.
