Brooklyn Eastern District Terminal

No. 81

Argued November 14, 1919

Decided December 8, 1919

A steam tug, propelling, lashed to its sides, other vessels of the same owner in pursuit of the owner's business, brought one of them -- a float carrying the cargo -- in collision with libelant's vessel. Held that, under Rev.Stats. §§ 4283-4285, the value of the tug, and not the value of the flotilla, was the limit of their owner's liability. P. 251 U. S. 51.

250 F. 1021 affirmed.
