Cleveland, Dec. 9 - After 2 weeks work, the survey of the stmr. WALLULA has been finished. Capts. Davidson and Benham were aided by Capt. Thomas Murphy in the survey. Benham and Davidson agreed on the damage items all the way through, but were far apart in the question of repairs. Benham figured it would cost upwards of $40,000 to rebuild the WALLULA, which would make her a constructive total loss and the property of the underwriters. Davidsons figures were between $23,000 and $24,000, and Capt. Murphy, who acted as arbitrator, place the cost of repairing the vessel and putting her in good shape at $28,722.
