HE HURLED
AN INKWELL
Lawyers in New Brunswick Start
led Referee James Parker by
Strenuous Action.
SMASHED ON THE WALL
New York Attorney Btcame Angry at Ro
bert Adraln of New Brunswick and
Threw Inkwell-Adrair. Dcdgcd and the
Missile Failed its Purpose Would Have
Returned the Compliment.
Special to the Evening News.
New Brunswick, Dec. 21:—“I have
never see such actions since the war,”
declared Referee James Parker, of
Perth Amboy, when Lawyer Clarence
Kelsev, of New York, in a fit of an
ger, hurled an inkwell across the
room at Lawyer Robert Adrain, of
this city.
Mr. Parker was sitting in the
bankruptcy case of the Fisher
Company. Mr. Kelsey was examin
ing Samuel F. Wylie, who was a
trustee of the company. Mr. Adrain
objected to Kelsey's .examination and
made some references to the lawyer's
abilities which caused Kelsev to de
clare that ho was no schister lawyer
and he grabbed the inkwell and hurled
it across the room. Adrain dodged
behind another lawyer and the missile
smashed against the wall, splattering
ink everywhere. Adrain then grabbed
another inkwell and prepared to hurl
it at Kt-lsay when friends intervened.
Referee Parker was highly indignate
that such a thing should occur in his
court and ho called the lawyers down
in round terms. Kelsey says he will
sue Adrain for slander.
