Tho judgments in tho casos of
tho Ainoka, Yivn and Beatrice,
soizod for being fouud scaling
within tho GO-tuilo prohibited zone
iu JJehring sen, wore delivered in
Admiralty on Monday by Mr.
Drake. Tho court found that tho
vcssols had been sealing wilhiu
the prohibited anno and that tho
def nee set up as to stress of
weather boiug tho causo of the
positions of tho vessels when soiz
cd had uot been satisfactorily es
tablished. Ho ordered tho three
schooners with thoir equipment
condemned, but provided that they
bo released on paymout by each of
MOO and coBts within thirty days.
His lordship held that if voobels
woro allowed immunity on tho
plea that they got into prohibited
waters through accident, ignor
ance or mistake it would bo im
possible to euforco the Behring
soa regulations. In the case of
tho schoonor Aurora, which was
discharged tho othor day, tho
Court awarded tho vessel cosls,
but no damages, as His Lordship
held that there had been n reason
able cause shown for the seizure.
