Page 252 U. S. 363

MR. JUSTICE DAY delivered the opinion of the Court.

This case was argued at the same time as No. 373, just decided, ante, 252 U. S. 348. In this case, the libelants shipped as part of the crew of the British Steamer Westmeath for a voyage not to exceed one year, before the expiration of which time the vessel arrived in the harbor of New York, where she loaded and discharged cargo. A demand was made for one-half wages under § 4 of the Seamen's Act of 1915. The demand was refused, and an action was begun for full wages. A defense was set up that the libelants were deserters, and therefore not entitled to recover. The district court and the circuit court of appeals held that the libelants' case was made out under the statute. 258 F.4d 6. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

Page 252 U. S. 364

The case is controlled by principles which governed the disposition of No. 373, the difference being that it appears in this case that demand was made more than five days after the vessel had arrived in the United States port. In all other respects as to the constitutionality and construction of the statute, our judgment in the former case is controlling. It follows that the decree of the circuit court of appeals must be affirmed.

Affirmed.
