1. Abandonment of voyage to avoid seizure as prize justified
where war rightly anticipated and voyage abandoned before
actual declaration. The K onprinzessin Cecilie..

2. In such case no cause of action arises from failure to de-
liver freight, although, semble, risk did not fall within excep-
tion of "arrest and restraint of princes, rulers or people"

law applicable to matters within admiralty and maritime
jurisdiction. Id.

to some extent under Constitution and Judiciary Act of

courage investments in ships, manifested by Acts of 1851 and
1884, which declare limitation upon liability of owners. Id.

diana Transp. Co.....

trary to law in joining new libellants with separate causes of

16. Pleading to merits after objection to jurisdiction over-
ruled, no waiver. Id.
