Capt. Bermingham, supervising inspector for the First district, according to a letter received yesterday by Capt. Whitney and Engineer Turner of the local United States marine board, will arrive in Seattle August 15th, says yesterday's Post-Intelligencer. The presumption is that he is coming to grant Scott A. DeLaunay a second rehearing in the matter of the revocation of his licence as chief engineer of the ill-fated steamer 'Clallam'. Beyond the fact that he is coming no statement as to the object of his mission has been received by the inspectors. With the conclusion of the first rehearing DeLaunay claimed that he had been unable to produce one or two material witnesses in his behalf. Capt. Bermingham, at that time, notified DeLaunay that he would grant him sixty days in which to produce his witnesses in San Francisco. Since then no further testimony has been submitted to Capt. Bermingham. Capt. Bermingham, Mr. Turner, of the local board, stated yesterday, has probably decided to come to Seattle and give DeLaunay a third opportunity to introduce testimony in his behalf.
