liens when the libels were filed; that the question of jurisdiction was,
as the case stood, one for the District Court to decide in the first
instance; that the District Court had jurisdiction; and that the judg-
ment under review was in effect an unlawful interference with pro-
ceedings in that court. Moran v. Sturges, 256.

3. Though courts, for the purpose of protecting their jurisdiction over
persons and subject-matter, may enjoin parties who are amenable to
their process, and subject to their jurisdiction, from interference with
them in respect of property in their possession or identical contro-
versies therein pending, by subsequent proceedings as to the same
parties and subject-matter in other courts of concurrent jurisdiction;
and though, where property is in the actual possession of one court
of competent jurisdiction, such possession cannot be disturbed by
process out of another court; yet, upon the facts disclosed in this
record, the District Court was not required to stay its hand until the
termination of the proceedings in the state court, that court being
without jurisdiction as to maritime liens, and being incapable of dis-
placing them. Ib.

4. The District Court in a libel in admiralty for collision, having adjudged
both vessels to be in fault, and only one having appealed, the only
question here is as to the fault of the appealing vessel; and on the

5. On a question purely of fact the court finds the St. John in fault, and
decrees accordingly. The St. John, 586.

6. On the facts detailed in the opinion, the court holds that there was
no contributory negligence on the part of the libellant. The Adelia,

7. On a review of the facts it is held that the Northfield was free from
fault and the decree below is affirmed. Hutchinson v. The Northfield,

8. By the terms of a charter party to the United States, the owner of a
vessel undertook to keep her tight, staunch, strong and sound, and
her machinery, boilers and everything pertaining to her in perfect
working order, and to provide her with everything necessary for effi-
cient sea-service. The government undertook to deliver the vessel to
the owner in New York at the expiration of the charter party in as
good condition as she was at the signing of it, ordinary wear and tear,
damage by the elements, bursting of boilers, breaking of machinery
excepted. The vessel was injured and sunk by a marine risk assumed
by the charterer while engaged in the transportation of stores and
men in the waters of North Carolina. She was raised and taken to
New Berne, where she was temporarily repaired by the government;
but, being found out of order, was discharged at Port Royal by the
government, and taken to New York by the owner. Held, that by
reason of the failure of the owner to keep the vessel tight, staunch,

strong and sound, the government was relieved from its liability
to deliver the vessel to the owner in New York. Strong v. United
States, 632.

2. A decree setting aside a conveyance by a bankrupt to his wife as
fraudulent is sustained; but it is also held that a personal decree
against her for rents, issues and profits, and for the use and occupa-
tion of the premises was error. Clark v. Beecher, 631.

3. On the facts it is held that the conveyance which is the subject of dis-
pute in this suit was fraudulent under the bankrupt laws. Woolfolk
v. Nisbet, 650.

4. Members of a limited partnership purchased and paid for the interest
of one of the members. Subsequently the remaining members became
