In The Action Of The Donnelly Wrecking Company.

Justice Ferguson gave judgement at Osgoode Hall, on Tueday, dismissing the action of $1,358 brought by the Donnelly Wrecking and Salvage company, of Kingston, against J. Turner, owner of the schooner Wave Crest, which went ashore at Point Breeze, N.Y., on Lake Ontario, on the 7th of December, 1899. Turner engaged the wrecking tug by wire for $150 per day, and a steam pump for $45 per day. The tug set out for Point Breeze, but the ice and storm prevented her from reaching her destination. After six and a half days had been consumed in this way a wire was received notifying the tug not to go, as the schooner had gone to pieces. The company then entered the claim for damages, and the owner of the boat put in a counter claim for failure of the company to keep the contract. The action was dismissed with costs, and the counter claim was dismissed without costs.
