Collamer of Lowell, Mass., formerly of Lincolnville vs. Preston Player of New York. Arthur S. Littlefield of Rockland appeared for the plaintiff and John E. Nel son of Augusta for the defendant. The suit was brought to recove, for legal neg ligence with damages assessed at $5,000. The plaintiff was employed as caretaker on Resolution island in Penobscot Bay owned by Mr. Player and on Jan. 23, 1918, while engaged in caring for a boat on the premises broke his right leg and was otherwise injured. The details of 1 the accident are familiar to all the Jour nal readers and the legal notice of tbe suit with the plea in the case was also advertised in Oct. 1918. The plaintiff and his wife were introduced by Mr. Lit tlefield as witnesses, while Mr. Nelson presented Mr. Player, Mr. McLeod and Mr. Gray of Dark Harbor. The defence was that Mr. Player was seriously ill at the time having recently sustained a very critical operation for goiter and could not attend to the affairs of his prop erty but was obliged to leave the island in the care of Mr. McLeod to hire a care taker. That he was entirely innocent of legal negligence and that the plaintiff’s personal negligence was contributory to the accident under the severe weather conditions at the time. Life on the isl and was most minutely taken up by the plaintiff’s attorney leading up to the amount of damages to be recovered. Both pleas were exhaustive and interest ing. The judge’s charge, a remarkably plain one, consumed about an hour as the case contained questions of law as well as fact. The jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff with damages assessed at $1,500. The case has been sent to the Law Court on report. THE CRIMINAL DOCKET, The criminal docket was called at 2 p. m.

Although the most severe storm of the season was raging, some time before 8 o’clock the hall was filled with a large body of pupils, practically all of the new students being present. Supt. and Mrs. E. E. Roderick, Principal Harry A. Foster, several of assistants and a few guests were present. Miss Verna C. Greenlaw, chairman of the Council’s social committee, presided in a very pleasing manner, and Bartlett J. Whiting, president, gave an address of welcome that would do credit to any adult association. He not only cordially welcomed the new students, but adroitly advised co-operation that would lead at once to good fellowship.

In commending its accomplish ments and in suggesting improvements the guests present lully icalized that the faculty were directing as well as co operating in school work. Punch and wafers were served under the direction of the girls of the Council, and the evening closed with dancing with piano and phonograph music, games and chorus singing. Civil Service Examination.
