She blew her a signal of two whistles and starboarded her wheel. Held: That she was in fault for so doing, and that this was the primary cause for the collision which followed. Held also: That the fact the descending steamer seemed to be nearer the eastern bank and that her lights were confused with the lights of other vessels moored to that bank, was not a "special circumstance” within the meaning of Rule 24, rendering a departure from Rule 18
necessary "to avoid immediate danger," since if there were any danger
