Judge Price presided at a special sitting of the Admiralty Court in the court house today. The case up for consideration arose over the accounts of the steambarge John Randall, owned by McKenzie & Co. and John Randall. McKenzie brought action against Randall for overcharging him for the carrying of coal, and for charging him with more coal than he consumed. Randall entered a counter claim against McKenzie for the freight carried. A.B. Cunningham appeared for Randall and G.M. Macdonnell for McKenzie. The books of both sides were produced and the accounts were not in a very satisfactory condition, and were not very easy to follow. Two witnesses were examined as to the steamer and the amount of coal she would use on certain trips. At the time of going to press no decision had been reached by the judge.
