Full Text

A petition was filed in the United States district court three months ago, by the Elk Rapids Iron Company, owner of the steam barge Leland, to limit the liability [for] schooner E. M. Portch, growing out of a collision with the Leland in which the latter was at fault. The value of the Leland was appraised under order from the court, and was placed at $7,500. This appraisment was set aside by Judge Blodgett for reasons heretofore given. A new appraisal has since taken place, when a great number of witnesses were examined, and the value of the vessel is now placed at $16,800, but even this amount will not cover the claim by the owner of the Portch. - Chicago Times.
