Milwaukee, Wis., Jan. 7 - Evidence in the collision case of the schooner STARKE against the schooner CHARLES E. WYMAN, docketed for hearing during the March term of the United States district court for the eastern district of Wisconsin, is now being taken. The collision occurred off Port Washington last summer, the STARKE, which was laden with a floatable cargo, receiving damage which caused her to waterlog and capsize. The claim preferred against the WYMAN is for $7,000. According to current gossip the owners of the WYMAN offered to settle for something over one-half of this sum but met with a refusal. Hence they concluded to let Judge Jenkins determine the amount of their liability should the WYMAN be found at fault.
