Causes Case to Be Defaulted Judge Barrows Admonishes
Attorneys to be On-the-Spot Superior Court Assign
ments For Monday Light & Power Company's Prop
ositkm to Increase Capital Stock Considered Yesterday
State G. A. R. Meeting.
An adjourned session of the super
ior court for Washington county,
Judge Chester W. Barrows, convened
in Westerly, Friday morning, and, af
ter the call of the docket adjourned
to come in again next Monday morn
ing. The first ease on the docket,
that of Charles D. Chapman, now de
ceased, against the New York, New
Haven and Hartford Railroad com
pany, was passed. This is an action
to recover the value of an automo
bile destroyed alleged to have been
started by a passing' locomotive while
the automobile was standing near the 1
Chapman quarry property.
The next case assigned for trial,
Friday, was Marie V. Cappuccio
against Joseph Guerino. Messrs. Dunn
and Rathbun, counsel for defendant,
were ready to proceed. Attorney
Ledwidgre, counsel for plaintiff, was
absent. It was learned upon inquiry
by Judge Barrows, that Mr. Ledwldge
had gone to Norwich, tout not in the
trial of any case, but on other busi
ness. The case was ordered defaulted
by reason of non-appearance, the
judge stating that Mr. Ledwidge
would be given opportunity to explain
his absence, if he desired the default
removed. Attorney McKenna stated
that he had been requested by Mr.
Ledwldge to explain his absence in the
event of the case being called, and it
vas not believed by Mr. Ledwidge
that the case would be reached Fri
day. Judge Barrows reminded the attor
neys present that they should be ready
to proceed when their cases were call
ed. They should bear in mind that
the state was at considerable expense
in having the jurors report, and es
pecially, when there was no business
for them, this expense ought not to
be incurred. He asked the attorneys
to cooperate with the court, and -be
in readiness to proceed with the cases
when called.
When the court comes in next Mon
day morning at 10.30 .the trial of the
case of Nora Mulligan, of Narrasan

represent plaintiff and Fred C. Olney
The case of Li da Thomas against
Amos Burdick and ICatherme Welch,
will follow the Mulligan-Randall case.
The plaintiff was struck 'by an auto
mobile, owned bp the defendants and
operated by Burdick. Miss Thomas
claims she was severelv iniured and
f sues for substantial damages. The
accident occurred in front of the rail
way station, rluring a severe rain
storm. Miss Thomas was carrying an
umbrella and did not see the auto
mobile, and Burdick claims he did not
see Miss Thomas until after she says
she was struck and knocked down by
tne automobile.

docket, ready for trial when reached,

be in session In Westerly two weeks.

Dangers of Draft.
Drafts feel best when we are hot and
perspiring. Just when they are most
dangerous, and the result is neuralgia,
stiff neck, sore muscles or sometimes
an attack of rheumatism. In such cases
apply Sloan's Liniment. It stimulates
circulation to the sore and painful part.
The blood flows freely and in a ehort
time the stiffness and pain leaves.
Those suffering from neuralgia or neu
ralgic headache will find one or two
applications of Sloans Liniment will
give grateful relief. The agonizing
pain gives way to a tingling sensation
of comfort and warmth and quiet rest
and sleep Is possible. Good for neuri
tis, too. Price 2 Sc. at your druggist.
