Rabidou to Pay $1,000 and Costs of Prosecution DESPITE THE PLEAS OF , MAN'S ATTORNEYS Northfield Autoist Was Con victed of Manslaughter in Death of C. N. French J. P. Rabidou of . Northfield, who was found guilty in Washington county court of manslaughter, in the death of Carl Ned French on the Burrc-Montpelier road on Anril 24. 1915, .by reason of negligent and careless driving of an automobile, was fined $1,000 and ordered to pay 5lu.0J I costs of prosecution to-day by Judge E. L. Waterman. The law provides a sentence of not more than 20 years' imprisonment or a fine of not more than $1,000. In nn.nn,.n..;na lont-enre. Judire Waterman stated that he did not wish to have it understood by the public or by automo hiiiata that it was to be taken aa a precedent birt as a warning. He mentioned the fact that thia was the first case of its kind to be tried in this section of the state and he uesirea !,.-. l,d luaf reaulta from the sen- IU 1 C ' V " " - -- , tence and to have the public understand that tlie reckless driving oi nuwuwuu" will no longer be endured, and in the future persons guilty of negligent driving might understand - that they faced a prison sentence and not the infliction of a line. The case waa not tried on the alli gation that the respondent committed manslaughter with intent but that the offense was the result of negligent dnv ing. When it comes to the question of sentence, said Judge Waterman, the com bination of the circumstances at the time must be taken into consideration. State's Attorney Gleason briefly stated that in view of the situation he felt war ranted in asking for the imposing of a prison sentence rather than a fine and that he did not feel that a fine would be miflficient. J. Ward Carver, counsel for the re spondent, expressed his surprise at the attitude taken by the state's attorney . .,i AiA think it fair to the respond ent. It was the first time he had ever publiclr made that statement. He called attention to the behavior of the respond- . -J 11.- M.... un.I all ent av me tune oi me in. - through the trial and thought Rabidou should receive consideration for not run ning away. Tbe element of bad luck entered into tbe accident. He believed a substantial fine would be sufficient notice to the public of the danger of operating an automobile in such a manner that the safety of the public was endangered. Kx-Congressman Frank Plumley fol lowed up hia colleague's argument by stating that he was preaent not only as a legal representative of the respondent but as a personal friend and a representa tive of the community in which they re sided. He introduced many petitions from organisations and individuals in Northfield. all asking for clemency for the reapondent. Petitions were introduced from the following: All but two members of Commercial Club of Northfield. rector of Fpiaoopsl church, former president and four profesors and dean of Norwich uni versity. Northfield Trust Co., Northfield Savings hank. Including signsture of Senator Cady, directors of Northfield public schools, Northfield National bank, trustees of village of NortWield. ! W. B. Mayo, chsirman, selectmen and officers of the' villsge. director and memlieta of Commercial club excepting the president, Mr. Rabidou. Attorney Plumley aaaerted that the respondent was convii-ted through a eue ceaaion of ill luck, that he stood before the jurv aa a man not negligent in the broad aenae of the word, but becauae he was within the ineorrat.'d limits of a city hen the fatality occurred. He be lieved the law regulating the apwl with in citv limita aa intended ti pntt the thirklv populated aoiona and the stat ute la' not regarded as being intended to regulate the ced of auloniobib-a to ten miles an hour in the utViita.

PROPOSE TO SELL CITY STONE-CRUSHER Aldermen Think They Are Paying Too Much for the Work Accomplished Other Matters Considered Last Night. For lack of anything more vulnerable to carry by assault, the board of alder men in a brief session at city ball last evening trained its guns on a helpless relic of the paleolithic age, the city stone crusher, putting that interesting adjunct of the street department in such a bad !v a vestitre M bllUw it a n,a.aax- " of its whilom caste when adjournment .r f . . . . a 1 . . 1 frranite came.

At Warnin; Vhistle, Vic .tim Rar f-ectly in Path of Swinging Roqk Walter Hakkaraines, a quarry workef employed at the Houtwcll, Milne & Var num quarries in Graniteville, waa in stantly killed this morning . around 9 o'clock when a stone falling from tho derrick, struck him on the head, causing a fracture of the skull. Ilakkarainca and an assistant were engaged in operat ing a steam drill about 40 feet below the surface of the quarry yard. In the yard above, tho derrick was swinging a stone, it being the operator's purpose to land it near the edge of the quarry. Before the movement of the derrick boom began, the derrickman blew the whistle, a warning usually sounded under such circumstances. Hearing the whistle, Hakkaraines and hia helper left the spot where they were working, one striking out in one direc tion and the other pursuing an opposite course. It was Hakkaraines who chose the fatal course, for he run directly in the path of the stone. As the stone was being lowered, it struck the ground on one corner and, being released from the chain, toppled into the bole. The stone is estimated to have w.eighed three tons. The blow is believed to have been a glancing one, as the man's body was not disfigured. A physician was called, but in his opin ion Hiikkaraines had been killed out right. The remains were taken to Whit conib'a undertaking establishment in Kasb Ram!. Hakkaraines' helper was unin jured, nor was the machine which tha pair had been working on damaged at all.. The dead man was bornjn Finland 24 years ago and since coming to Granite ville he hayl resided with his uncle. Ha leaves a sister in Rraintree, Mass., and hia mother lives in Finland. It Is ex pected that the funeral will lie held Fri day, with interment in the Wilson ceme tery at South Harre. MANUFACTURER INJURED. Thomas J. Carroll Pinned Dwf, bf Block of Granite. Thoma J.
