p.3 Spring Assizes - Preston vs Magor - A suit brought by John K. Preston, Patrick McCreskin, and Frank Kerr, of Detroit, against Frank and John Magor, of Montreal, for demurrage, the schooner Senator Blood, belonging to plaintiffs, laden with wheat consigned to defendants, having been detained for some six days at Kingston, at the time of the Lachine Canal accident, when, in consequence, there was a scarcity of barges at this port. Plaintiffs claimed that they had been obliged to incur costs to the extent of $200 ? as a result of the said detention. Verdict for plaintiff for $100 and costs; non-jury case. At the previous court the jury, before whom the case was tried, disagreed. Mr. J. Mudie for plaintiff, and Messrs. Britton and Whiting for defendant.
Capt. C. Staley, of steambarge Albion, will fit it out at Port Dalhousie.
