IN THE CONSULATE-GENERAL FOR SWEDEN AND NORWAY.
Shanghai, 30th M arch.
Before Carl Book, Esq., Vice-Consul and Judge, and Messrs. H. H. Sonne and A. Johnsford, Assessors.
G. A. WOODS v. NILS MOLLER.
  This was a claim for Tls. 498.95 for repairs done to the boiler and engines of the s.s. Heron belonging to the defendant.  Defendant pleaded that the work was not properly done and that he thereby lost the use of the Heron for ten days and was put to further expense for repairs.
  The hearing of the case took place on the 24th and 25th instant, when Mr. T. Latham appeared for the plaintiff and Mr. Nils Moller conducted his own case.
  On the part of the plaintiff several witnesses were called who proved that the wok was satisfactorily done, while the defendant and the master and mate of the vessel gave in some respects a different account; no engineer or boilermaker, however, was called to contradict the evidence given in behalf of the plaintiff.
  Judgment was given today in favour of the plaintiff for the whole claim and costs, less Tls. 13.50.
