REMOVAL OF WRECKS. The “Merchant Shipping Act,” 1894, secs. 530 to 534, gives powers to the Local Harbour Authority at every port to clear away any wreck forming an obstruction, in default of the owner's proceeding to do so, and to re-imburse itself from the sale of any materials recovered, either of the ship or of its cargo. Where there is no local authority, the lighting and buoying authority is to have jurisdiction, and the same powers of removal, re-imbursing itself in the same manner.
As, however, the expenses of recovery of the materials of an iron ship greatly exceed the value of the materials when recovered, certain of the principal harbour authorities have applied for, and have obtained, further powers, and the Thames and Humber Conservancics, the Mersey Harbour Board, the Clyde Lighthouse Trust, and the Commissioners of Cork and of Waterford Harbours, have, with some others, power to enforce payment by the owners of a wrecked ship of all expenses incurred in the removal of the obstruction.
In France, the measws of liability is now limited to the value of the ship and cargo. P, abandonment of these the owner of a vessel wrecked in French waters escapes all further liability to the Government.

TABLES OF FREEBOARD. THE MODIFICATIONS RECOMMENDED BY THE LOADLINE
COMMITTEE OF 1898, WITH BOARD OF TRADE Notes ON THE APPLICATION OF THE TABLES AND RULES FOR THE AssIGNMENT OF FREEBOARDS TO TURRET DECK AND SHELTER DECK VESSELS, ARE EMBODIED IN THE FOLLOWING PAGES.
REPORT OF THE LOADLINE COMMITTEE EXTRACT.]
President of the Board of Trade.
“1. Whether it is now practicable to frame any general rules concerning freeboard which will prevent dangerous over• loading without unduly interferring with trade.
"2. If so, whether any, and which of the existing tables, with any, and what alterations, or any other, and what tables should be adopted.
* 3. low far any such tables can be adopted as fixed rules, and what amount of discretion must be left to the Officers who
have to see that they are complied with.” We have unanimously arrived at the following replies, viz. :
We are of opinion that it is now practicable to frame general rules concerning freeboard which will prevent dangerous over. loading without unduly interferring with trade.
We have the pleasure to submit herewith tables which we consider should be adopted.
3. We are of opinion that these tables can be adopted, at least for all existing types of cargo vessels, and for some years to come, without the exercise of any other discretion on the part of the otticers who have to see that they are comp ied with, than that which concerns the quality and condition of the ship. The free boards assigned by the tables herewith are suitable for vessels of the highest class in Lloyd's Register or of strength equivalent thereto, and should be increased for ships of inferior strength.
To the responsible authorities a large discretion must be allowed, viz. : that of applying the tables themselves with reasonable modifi. cations to any very exceptional vessels which may now exist or may hereafter be constructed.
For, careful as we have been to give full consideration to all actual types and sizes of vessels, we cannot but admit that undue interference with trar e inight occasionally arise were the tables tų be applied henceforth to all ships, present and future, without any exception whatcver. We are well aware that the discretion which we thus regard as necessary is such as should be exercised with very grcal skill, care and judgment.
The tables submitted herewith are of the same general form as those litherto adopted by Lloyd's Register Office, and, like them, involve the reservation above water of a regulated minimum percentage of the
total buoyancy. These tables sufficient height of deck above water. The views of the Loard of Trade advisers concerning the value of forecastles, poops, and like deck
erections, and the necessity for Liberal amount of freeboard in flush decked vessels which are
