[ 4t ] APPENDIX. No. i. The Examination of JOHN CROKER, Efquire; taken upon Oath, the 29th December i8c6. THIS Examinant faith, THAT he is Surveyor General of the Port and Diftrifl: of Dublin. That from all the Information he has been able to obtain, Diftillers in general are able to do the Quantity of Work required by Law, and thofe who work 500 Gallon Stills more. He thinks that the Allowances now made for Liberty of the Still to work are fully fufficient, but from the Complaints made by Diflillers of the Want of Still- room, he would be inclined to allow them on Wafli One- eighth inftead of One- tenth, provided Means could be devifed of taking an Account of all the Walh made. He is of Opinion, that the Allowance of Ten Gallons of Wafh for One Gallon of Spirits is too great. He thinks that the Saccharometer, if ufed, would be a good Check on the Walh ; he cannot form a decided Opinion as to the Propriety of allowing more Time for Fermentation, but is apprehenfive that it would be dangerous, as Diftillers have been fo much in the Habit of renewing their Backs. The Number of Charges impofed on different fized Stills, were made according to the beft Judgment Examinant could form from the Information he received, but he had not the Opportunity of grounding his Opinion on any aftual Experiments. The prefcribing a Shape to the Stills, was with a View to prevent Frauds on the Revenue from Rapidity of Work. He is not able to form an Opinion, whether it would be better to prevent the Fire from coming round the Sides of the Still, and confine it to the Bottom only. He does not fee any Objection to allowing the Diftiller, under proper Regulations, to draw off his Spirits at any Strength he pleafes, and charging him with the Excefs above Proof. He is of Opinion that the Strength of Spirits ought to be tried by the Hydrometer. John Croker. J. S. Rochfort. Frederick Geale. Robert Alexander. Charles Saxion. No. 2.
