The three I masters are the F. C. Teiidleton, Susie H. Davidson and Harold C. Beecher, Tlie lat ter has been ashore and will require exten sive repairs.

Parker of Bucks purt representing Lloyds and Fields S. and Fields C. Pendleton of New York repre senting the owners of the schooner. The vessel was not chafed, but her keel and keelson were broken amidships and she was badly bogged.The English ship captains plj ing on the transatlantic liners coming to Boston propose to move Boston lightship farther offshore. The lightship is now six miles east one-half south of Bos ton light. The English captains would like to have it about 20 miles oft the light, on a line between Thaehers Island and the Highland lights, on Stelwaggen bank. Capt. George W. Eldridge, the chart maker, will fight this proposition. He says of these English captains: “They want too much. They would like to have the lightship moved for their own convenieuee, but what about our coastwise shipping? All vessels bound into Boston run for the iighship in thick weather, and from it shape their , course into the harbor. What good would it be to them on Stelwaggen bank ? Not a , bit! No, sir, not a single bit! I .-hall fight any proposition to shift the lightship. It is in tlie right place now, and everybody is satisfied with it except the English steam ship captains.” He said all coastwise skip 1 pers agreed with him that the lightship is Ill me llgin place. n me migiisn ship pers don’t find sea room enough around it ■ in thick weather let ’em haul otf-hore,” he said.The good schooner Polly was at Camden the lirst of the week and apparent ly has not been painted since she left liel , fast.

A telegram was received Wednesday an nouncing the death that morning of Mrs. George P. Field at Hotel Somerset, Boston. A large black steam yacht was seen in the bay Tuesday afternoon headed for Searsport. It was thought to be H. H. Roger's Kanawha, considered the fastest American yacht afloat. Mr. and Mrs. Herman Stevens, and little son Howard of Mattapan, Mass., and Miss Mildred M. Mason of Belfast arrived on Wednesday morning's boat for a stay with Mr. and Mrs. Howard F. Mason, East Bel fast. Liquor Matters. Owen Gallant, other wise known as Jack Gallant of Cape Jelli son, Stockton Springs, was taken before Judge Black of Searsport Tuesday after noon on a search and seizure warrant and sentenced to serve 60 days in jail and pay a fine of $100 and costs, from which be ap pealed and was committed for want of bail. The complaint was made by one of the resi dents of Cape Jell iso n and the warrant served by Deputy Sheriff Ellis, who receiv ed other assistance from the sheriff’s office. The next day Sheriff Carleton took warrants against Gallant for being a common seller, maintaining a tippling shop and,for main taining a common nuisance, lie was tried in the Belfast Police Court by Judge Rogers* Jouml guilty on tne nrst two couuis aim given the usual sentence ami flue for those cases, from which he appealed, bail being fixed at $200 in each case. Probable cause was found to hold Gallant on the nuisance count for the grand jury and bail was fixed in this case at $500, or a total of $1100 in all cases. lie was unable to furnish bail and was committed, with the probability of not getting it. It is claimed that Gallant has been a noted pocket peddler of intoxicating liquors about the Cape and Stockton village for several months. lie undoubtedly relied on the reluctance of most people to tell the officials what they know about these cases, either for business or personal reasons. He became so bold that he went beyond the line of caution usually practiced by this despicable class of law-breakers and be came such a nuisance to the neighbors that it caused them to become loyal enough to their families to give the necessary and much wanted evidence by the sheriff to convict the man and put him out of busi ness. This case clearly demonstrates that this class of offenders can be promptly dealt with when interested, courageous, loyal citizens will unite with the officers and furnish necessary evidence to convict evidence that is usually known to all but the officers—and frequently when it comes to them it is whispered and followed by the request, “Hut don’t bring me into this.” Then if the officer does not act promptly the same informant usually goes forth with criticism, such as, “Why don’t the officers act in the case. They know it. I told them all about it.” The people who gave the of ficer evidence in this ease deserve the strongest praise from every good citizen of Stockton Springs, and the officials who were thus enabled to act in these cases feel deep ly indebted for the assistance rendered.
