-c THE SEIZURE OF THE LIVER- POOL STEAMER OVERDALE. Alleged Piracy bv the Peruvians. On Tuesday afternoon the owners of the Liver- pool stamer Overdale, which was seized about a fortnight ago still under detention by the Peruvian authorities at Mollendo, received a telegram from the Foreign Office stating that a cablegram had been received from the Bri- tish Charge d'Affaires at Lima. In this latter Lord Granville was asked if the British representative should pay under protest the fine which the Peruvian authorities might impose on the vessel in order to obtain her release. Lord GranYIlle, however not wishing to take the responsibility of such a step, wired to the owners for their decision. in reply, the owners" of the Overdale stated their unwillingness to agree to such a course. They mentioned that they had information of the port of Mollendo being open »t the tune the Overdale arrived, and that the vessel's seizure savoured verv Uluch of piracy. They did not know the amount of the fine which the Peruvians would impose, and the payment of the said fine would, the owners believed, look as if they acknowledged the justice of the seizure and might prejudice them in any claim they must consider it neces- saryto make. The owners also instanced the case of a vessel which was seized in a similar manner by therenjvians g0me four or f;vo yCars ago. The vessel in question was subse- quently stripped, and the claim which her owners put forward is still in abeyance. Very serious consequences have,'the! owners, said so far resulted trom the seizure, and they asked Lord Granville to inform the Peruvian authorities of the fact, and to intimate that they will be held responsible for all losses sustained. The Over- dale, it seems, was about to proceed to carry out some important contracts, and her detention will, it is feared, prevent the accomplishment of the intention, involving serious loss.
