Excerpt from In the United States Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit: The British Ship ´´Celtic Chief´´, Her Tackle, Etc., And John Henry, Master and Claimant Thereof, Appellants, Vs. Inter Island Steam Navigation Company, Limited (an Hawaiian Corporation) These are appeals from three separate decrees ren dered by the District Court for the Territory of Hawan awarding amounts aggregating for the salvage of the British Ship Celtic Chief, her cargo and freight money. This amount is made up as follows: To the Inter Island Steam Navigation Company, for salvage proper and for special expenses); to the Miller Salvage Company, for salvage and for expenses), and to the Matson Navigation Company, (viii, 3376 The three cases gave rise to an extraordinary record containing 3419 prmted pages (despite numerous omissions made by appellant under Rule and costing over for type writing and printing. We believe we may safely say that such a record is wholly unprecedented in admir alty cases and deserves censure and condemnation at the hands of this court. Appellants, however, are not responsible for the Size of the record Since their testimony only covers 285 pages´, as against 1283 pages of testimony for the lmiller Salvage Company, and 1573 pages for the Inter Island Company and the Matson Company. We believe that the court will very soon see that all three cases were very sim ple salvage cases and that the bulk Of the testimony was cumulative, unnecessary and largely immaterial, but the appellants had no´recourse but to print prac tically the whole of it. Appellants appreciate that the burden Of reading this record is; a considerable one, but they also believe that the cases are so Simple that the court will have to read comparativelylittle. They feel that the awards in question are so clearly unjust and excessive (even on the lower court´s own findings) that they are not to be criticized for incurring the enormous expense entailed in bring ing up the cases. If appellants are right in this belief and, as a consequence, the appellees are forced to pay very heavy costs, which diminish even their just claims, they have only themselves to blame and the burden of paying for the record will rest on the parties who made it up. Perhaps it will also tend to reduce the volume of such records in the future. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

´´Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages are not yet sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favor; a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason. As a long and violent abuse of power is generally the means of calling the right of it in question (and in matters too which might never have been thought of, had not the sufferers been aggravated into the inquiry) and as the king of England hath undertaken in his own right, to support the Parliament in what he calls Theirs, and as the good people of this country are grievously oppressed by the combination, they have an undoubted privilege to inquire into the pretensions of both, and equally to reject the usurpation of either. In the following sheets, the author hath studiously avoided every thing which is personal among ourselves. Compliments as well as censure to individuals make no part thereof. The wise, and the worthy, need not the triumph of a pamphlet; and those whose sentiments are injudicious, or unfriendly, will cease of themselves unless too much pains are bestowed upon their conversion.´´ 1.
