This was an appeal from a judgment of the President of the Admiralty Division of the High Court in Prize delivered on December 7, 1914 (31 The Times L. R., 111).

Mr. Maurice Hill, K. C., Mr. R. H. Balloch, and Mr. C. R. Dunlop appeared for the appellants; Sir Edward Carson, K. C., Sir Erle Richards, K. C., and Mr. Theobald Mathew for the Crown.

The ship arrived at Dartmouth on August 14, 1914.

On August 15 the Board of Trade issued a notice containing recommendations with regard to the treatment of cargoes belonging to an enemy in ships diverted from their original ports of destination.

It was recommended that the cargo should be landed at a dock,
