A Shipping Case - Murton vs Kingston and Montreal Forwarding Co. - McLean, Q.C., moved for an order nisi to set aside a nonsuit, and to enter a verdict for plaintiff for $683.26. This was an action tried at Hamilton before Armour, J., at the Winter Assizes, 1882, to recover the price of 492 bushels of grain, which were received by the defendants as overplus on a cargo of grain shipped on the Ella Murton at Hamilton. Order nisi granted. This is a test case to ascertain the relative right of shipowners and proprietors of an elevator under what are known as "cut-throat bills of lading."
