No. 12, 13.] ON FEES, GRATUITIES, & c. - ( M a l t . ) 33 He has heard, that in Malthonfes where private wettings take place, the Officer and 1 rader fhare the Duty evaded. If the Officers were attentive to their duty, he does not think that frauds could be carried on to any extent in licenced Malthoufes. In making Porter Malt he gene- rally keeps the Corn on kiln for 48 hours ; it is laid on at about three or four inches deep. Pale Malt requires to be kept on kiln rather longer; he finds it necefTary to dry off a whole wetting at a time, becaufe the reftriaions with refpeft to the fize of the floor, and the time for keeping Grain on floor, will not admit of the divifion of a wetting. Examinant, however, thinks that under the prefent reftriaions the fair Manufaaurer can make good Malt, and that, under the prefent circumftances, they give proteaion to the fair Trader. He is of opinion that the kiln need only be large enough to contain one wetting. Alex. Somers. j. S. Rochfort, Fred. Geale, Robert Alexander, Charles Saxton, Cha. Stewart Hawthorne. No. 12. The Examination of HUGH TREVOR, Efquire; taken upon Oath, the 36th day of May, and the 2d, 9th, and 17th, of June, 1807. This Examinant faith, That he is Proprietor of a Brewery and Malthoufe, in the City of Dublin, He leaves the condua of his Malting chiefly to James Aikin, his Maltfter, as he is not himfelf acquainted with the practical part of the bufmefs. He is not in the habit of ufmg raw Corn in his Brewery, but he underftands that it is ufed to a confiderable extent by many of the Brewers in Dublin. He does not think that Beer made from raw Corn would have fo good a flavour, or keep fo well, as Beer made from Malt. The fees which he has paid to Officers fince the firft of May 1806, including the Permit Stamp Duty, and the fum of £. 5. 13. 9. to the Surveyor, amounted to ^. 32. 8. Previous to the laft year he was accuftomed to pay an annual fee of 5. 13. g, to the Infpeftor General, but he has not fince that time paid any fuch fee. Hugh Trevor. J. S. Rochfort, Fred. Geale, Robert Alexander, Charles Saxton, Cha. Stewart Hawthorn:. No. 13. The Examination of Mr. DAVID SHERLOCK; taken on Oath, the iSth and 22d days of June 1807. This Examinant faith, That he has been a Brewer and Maltfter in the City of Dublin for many years. As by the Malt A a of 18.55, he was prevented from watering on the floor, and had been previouflv reftriaed from continuing the Corn in fteep for more than 72 hours, he gave up Malting, and did not take out any licence for the laft or preceeding year. He is of opinion, ° that the greater part of Irifh Barley requires 84 hours watering. It was his praaice to keep his Grain in fteep for 72 hours, and that was fo inefficient, that he would, if permitted, have kept it in fteep for 12 hours more ; but not being allowed fo to do, he had recourfe to the praaice of watering on the floor ; whenever, in warm weather, he kept his Corn in couch for the full time required by Law, he conceived that the Corn derived an unpleafant tafte from remaining fo long in coudi.
