OF 52,90 Owners of Republic Blame fktfida Sor Collision.

It was asserted in the libel that the collision was due to no fault on the part of Captain Sealby of the Repub lic, but wholly to the faults of the Florida, which, it was alleged, did not keep a proper course, had no suf ficient lookout, did not give proper whistles nor pay heed to the whistle of the Republic that the Florida failed to indicate her changes ot helm: that she was proceeding at an immoderate speed and did not siop or back her engines.

The coif* was asked to condemn the Florida and order the payment of $2,000,000 damages to the owners of the Republic. SAY CRIB WAS A FTFIETRAP Witnesses Testify at Coroner's In quest at Chicago.
