THE LOCAL COLLISION CASE. I Both Vessels Blamed. In the Court of Admiralty, London, on Tues- day-before Mr Justice Butt, with Trinity Mas- ters-the action of the owners of the Tintern Abbey v. the owners of the Anatolia was con- tinued, This was an action to recover compensa- tion for the injuries sustained by the plaintiffs' vessel in collision with the defendants' steamer, which was wart heard on Monday.—Mr Justice Butt, in giving judgment, said that in this case the parties in both vessels heard the whistle of each other ten minutes before the collision took place, and the first thought that crossed his mind was that there should not have been any collision at all. The two vessels met at right angles, and in his opinion the collision was brought about by the violent anu inconsistent porting of the JL intern ADoey. First she ported, after hearing the whistle of the Anatolia then she starboarded for some time, thus altering her S.W. position by at least four points. Desiring to get back to her old semth-west course, the Tintern Abbey hard-a-ported, and then the collision took place. She was going at a reckless speed through the foff which prevailed at the time, and as she had not stopped in time, she was to blame for the collision. But could the court hold the Anatolia blameless after this decision^? She 'was equally bound to stop and reverse, but she failed to do this, and therefore the court found, and the Elder Brethren agreed with him, that both vessels-were to blame.
