p.4 Demurrage Cases Settled - The suits of Myles & Son, S. Neelon and Mackay & Son, brought against Ogilvie & Co., of Montreal, cases which involved questions of considerable interest to marine men and which were being brought down for trial at the ensuing assizes, have been settled by the parties out of court. The question was one of demurrage, the plaintiffs claiming damages for the detention of their vessels at Kingston last fall. The vessels were loaded with grain consigned to the defendants at Montreal, in care of the Montreal Transportation Company here, and on their arrival here were detained in consequence of the break in the Cornwall canal. The plaintiffs allege that they were put to great expense, having their vessels detained here and claimed large damages for which they sued. The defendants settled with the plaintiffs. Mr. McIntyre, Q.C., acted for the plaintiffs and Messrs. Britton & Whiting for the defendants.
