John Sanborn Retires. John San
born has sold bis teams and trucking
business to Joseph F. McKeen, who sue
ceeds him as local agent for the Standard
Oil Co., Mr. Sanborn having resigned
that position and retired from active busi
ness. He was born in Hridgton, Me,
and when very young his parents moved to
Portland. Forty years ago he came to Bel
fast with his brother, VV. H. Sanborn, who
died a few years ago, and this has been his
home ever siuce. He went coasting for a
time and then engaged in trucking and
stevedoring and about 14 years ago became
the local agent for the Standard Oil Com
pany, also continuing his trucking business.
He served in the Civil War in Company G.,
l'tb Maine, enlisting in 1862, one of the
youngest volunteers in Maine. Although
you might not think of it to look at John’s
portly figure now he has been a hard work
er and by industry and sobriety has accu
mulated a competency. He will no doubt
be seen about tbe water front as of yore,
but it will be as a spectator. Mr. McKeen
has taken charge of the Standard Oil Co.’s
office and will continue the general truck
ing business.

Shipping Items. Six schooners of the
Pendleton Brothers fleet, one four-master,
three three-masters and two two-masters
are now at this port—four for repairs, and
! two laid up that have probably made their
I last voyages. The four-master is the Stan
| ley D. Minor bought by the Pendletons
! whpn wrpftkpd in Snnthprn wntprs a ml
which has had the interior of her houses re
built and other repairs made. 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. The two two masters laid up
are tlie Maggie Mulvey and William Slater,
both old-timers. The Slater i.- 210 tons net
and was built at 'Phumaston, Me., iu 1800,
and tlie Mulvey is 252 tons net and was
i tilli 11 at Waldoboro in 1864.Tlie Bangor
tug Stella was taken out on Gilchrest’s
marine railway last Thursday, but was
launched Saturday to take on sell. Harold
C. Beecher to have a survey made and the
damage estimated. U. M. Bean of Camden
was here to represent the towboat company
whose tug ran the Beecher on a ledge at
Pigeon Cove, Mass., Capt. 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

H. Scott Tollman of Boston arrived on ]
Tuesday morning's boat to visit his sister,
Mrs. Minnie T. Clark, Cedar street.
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
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.
