K - 24] ON FEES, GRATUITIES, he.—( Matt.) 43 firft Malt Survey in the Diffract of the City of Dublin, comprehending St. Sepulchres, ^ oombe Stephens Green firft and fecond walks. His duty was, to vifit daily the ieveral Malthoufes in his furvey; to take an account of the depending pro- cess, and of the flock, and to fee that the duty of the inferior Officers was corre& ly done. , Her believes that in many inftances the Corn is wetted feveral hours before the time fpecified in the notices, but has not tried the Grain either by tailing or feeling, in order to afcertain the fa£ t. The ufual hour of his vifits were between eleven and three ; he may have occafionally, but feldom, gone as early as nine; but does not believe he ever went before nine, after three, or at night. He has never detefted a private wetting. He has feen gauges of Corn in fteep entered in the Stock- books as nearly of the full altitude of the ciftern, though declared to be in only about an hour; at the fame time the prefumption is, that to allow for the neceffary fwell, it fhould not have contained above 4- 5ths of the grofs content. He has looked over Gaugers Stock- books, and he believes the entries to be in many inftances fictitious. He begs to add, that he was but a fhort time employed in that branch of the Excife. He has always found the couch- frame confiderably to exceed the content of the cif- tern : he never made any report of this circumftance, becaufe he received the dimen- fiens from his predeceffcr in the furvey; and the Stock- book in which they were entered, was conftantly open to the infpe& ion of his fuperior Officers. The charge when made from the couch- frame, which feldom happened, very little exceeded the ciftern content. The floor- gauge was feldom, if ever taken by the Officer, till after 120 hours from the time the Grain was thrown from the couch. He does not re- coiled: to have ever taken a floor- gauge himfelf at any of his vifits. He knew of one concern in Dublin wherein there were three cifterns, two only of which were licenfed, but he believes that the third was not ufed. He never made any repre- fentation of that circumllance to the Board. He received from each Malfter in his furvey from five to ten Guineas, according to the extent of their concerns, for cer- tifying the dimenfions of the houle on making out the regifter. He has not rece ved from Maltfters any other fee, perquifite, or emolument of any nature or kind whatsoever. He fays, that when he was in charge of a Diflillery he was offered 20 Guineas per month by the Diftiller, and in order to induce him to accept of it, was told that his predecefiors had done fo before him. He did his duty in refpedt to this Diftillery in the fame manner as his predcceffors, and he did not wifh to be more particular in the execution of it. He never recol- lects to have heard any Gauger, Surveyor, or Infpeftor Genera!, mention the amount of their fees. Rich. Starr. J. S. Rochfort, Fred. Geale., Robert Alexander, Charles Saxton. No. 24. The Examination of Mr. JOSEPH CARTER, Gauger; taken on Oath, the 24th, 27th, 29th, and 30th, of April 1807, vThis Examinant faith, . , _ , _ c , Tint he has been in the fervice of the Revenue about two years, for one year and - ha/ of which he has been in charge of a Malt walk in the Diftndt of the City of r>„ Min • the Gau° er when put in charge, receives from the Surveyor a Malt Stock- book ni'^ ich ^ account fs opened ilr each Brewer Diftiller ktor and Malt- fler in his walk. In this book he tranferibes from the book of the preceding month " the dimenfions in length, breadth, and depth of the cifterns and couch- frames of ' all Malthoufes in his charge. In the Malthoufe of which be is now m charge, the couch- fiame is of greater content than the ciftern by 151 bufhels The Maltfter is required to give notice of each wetting, and the Gauger is or- dered to attend within two or three hours after the time mentioned m the no^ cefor 17.
