'Equal rights for the peopl, is tne motto adopted In the platform.
"The belie! of the independent patty is that the successful

"They should abso strive to Set aside an appropriation for

"We stand opposed to monopolies, to any attempt at a restriction

The testioosy assa to be coaiicticr
n,on this point.
It is admitted by all th partus to th;
action that th Danrwcgan was ia a
of grvsx danger; that th Feaflei
rendered ftlcient v?rtires in rescuing hr
and her cargo ; but as to the services rendered
by Captain ilacauiey in cost-man
of the EIe on the ftth. there t con-
ii!rabb' dispute. In thia case the mar
ter resolves kelf into the two quest ksra
of who is entitled to the salvage avrani.
and what amount or amounts should e

yet the Fearls was fortunate
tuiouch to avoid any untowaril accident r
her efforts to -rescue the stranded vessel.
The oiScers and men of the Fearie? did
their full duty in the premises?, and wh'I
thre were no peculiarly hazzardous
connected with what tBey diJ.
and especially in view of the fact that no
Jives were lost or .erious injury suffered.
yet it is not debatable but what theic
was some rik anu more or Jess bravery
di.splnyed by the officers and men of the
in reraainin? all of the uisht of
the Stit of August in shallow waters on
the edge of the ceral reef (the cause of
the disaster of the Dunreggan) within a
hundred ysirds of the breakers, subject to
stroiiR currents, hauling and pulling U
the Dunreggan in the darkness of the
night in order to keep her head to the
nen r.nd to the wind. That this largely
prevented the stranded vessel from goin
broadside upon the reef and thus becoming
a total wreck, is borne out by the
testimony of a majority of the witnesses,
and is admitted on the argument by tho
proctors for libellee.
It may lie and doubtless is true that
in the hurry and excitement of a wreckage
like this, the very best thing is not
done, and possibly the very best thing wa
not dune in this case, but enough wa
done to save the ship, although damaged
seriously by her rough experience, aud
to save nlso a cargo worth, with the
freight. $34,20059. It now ill becomes
the captain or Other officers of the Dun-
reggan to say that this could have beeu
done by other, menus, but wfiWi means
were not employed. Xo subsequent opinions
of the officers, of a wrecked vessel
looking backward as to whar they might
possibly have done, but which they did
not do. can in anywise disparage or undervalue
what was done by the salvors.
It is settled in the mind of
the court that in considering the amount
of salvage to be awarded, the Feafless is
first, the Iroquois having asked no Salvage,
however efficient the court may consider
her services, h cannot decree remuneration
therefor: the Eleu having
lecn paid in full for the services rendered
by her as per the receip'ted bill introduced
in evidence, she is entitled to no further
compensation : there yet remains tjie
claim of Captain Macauley, the
for personal services rendered oy
him for about an hour on the afternoon
of the 0th. It seems that he was au experienced
pilot, familiar with the depth
of the water and the currents where the
vessel was wrecked and while counsel
for libellee claims that he is debarred
from demanding any 'salvage by reason
of the Eleu having been paid in full for
her services, upon an agreement made
with Captain Hilbus on the Sth of August
aud assented to, as claimed by the master
of the Duureggan, by Capain
when he arrived on the scene on the
Hth ; yet it is not clear to the court from
the testimony that Maeauley and Disou
understood each other, or that there was
any meeting of minds between them on
that day in the nature of an agreement.
The court is inclined to believe that Captain
Maeauley was a volunteer-when his
services were accepted by the captain of
the Duureggan, and that he simply
yes to the inquiry of the captain
of the Dunreggan when he asked if
it was the samw boat that he (Dixon)
had made the agreement with the day
before, without auy confirmation of said
agreement. Aud while it is true the
Eleu was paid for that day also, the
court is inclined to the belief that
is entitled to some compensation
for the services rendered by him personally
as raa.tr, notwithstanding the
settlement of the Eleu.
Hut counsel for libellov
claim that such services were not entitled
to much reward. To sustain th;t
position he says there was no danger to
life ou either tha ship Duureggan or the
tug Fearless. To be exact, he claimed
there" was "not the slightest danger lo
life." ITe argued that this was so because
the weather was fair and continued
fair during the period the Dunreggan was
on the reef, and that she w pulled oft
the reef before she was wrecked. Assuming
it to be true that there were ho
lives imperilled, yet the court cannot dee
why reasonable salvage should not be
allowed for meritorious effort to save
the ship and cargo. There were some
twenty-four men on board of the

were safe. But if a istorm had arisen,
all the testimony bears ont the presumption

If the salvors persistently did
all they could do to save the ship, and at
the same time avoid the danger which a
loss of the ship would cause to the men
on board, they are entitled to fair and
liberal compensation in the event of success.
The court thinks the salvors did
this. No ship is safe stranded on suca
a reef as was the Dunrwggan, and when
she was sand from danger the men oo
board were saved from dangerv No one
docbts but if the ship had been cast
broadside upon this reef she would have

that she was in hourly Luacer of swinging

Considering all the circumstances' of
the cae, without reference to the quo
tum of proportions, the court is of the
opinioB that 3 reasonable compensation
to the salvors ia view of tha amount
of property rescced should be the sua of
$111,000. to include the services of all
three vesels. That of this amount the
