fused to compensate the Manchester
& Sanford Shipping company , the own
: ers of the British steamer Oldhamia
and the Standard OH company , the
consignee of the cargo of that vessel

Japan with a cargo of distilled nap-

amount of $500,000.
The Russian prize court which
dealt with the case after the capture
of the Oldhamia , condemned both the
ship and the cargo , and the decision

the cargo was contraband. A long
correspondence ensued between the
British foreign office and the Russian
government without , however , achiev
ing any result. Sir Edward Grey now
; points out that , falling the establish
ment of an international prize court

r * in which the decision of national prize
courts are unsatisfactory.
