(A Letter from Fredericton)

6 Oct. 1832

The coolness of the declining day enabled us to hurry our pace a little, and we soon came in sight of the Indian village. Passing the neat farms of Mr. Phillips and Mr. Jones, we noticed a great and recent improvement in the appearance of the dwelling of the latter. If many who build large houses and allow them to rot down from the inability to buy paint, would just imitate Mr. J., by the application of a little lime and a few hours labour, I venture to affirm, and for proof I refer them to his house, they would gain by it in the end--and surely their farms would look better . Naduct Point, a fine tract of about one hundred acres of intervale, has no doubt, been the scite of an Indian encampment, long before the discovery of America, as has also Fredericton, and most other flat points on the river. At present a part of it with a sufficient quantity of adjoining high land, is occupied by the Indians, where they have built about fifteen huts, all of bark, with one exception the most permanent residence their families have. ....

... and as I have already given him an example of industry in another country, I will furnish him with one of enterprise in our own. I was raising my head from a contemplative position as the Caledonia mills burst upon my view. The reason and origin of the name is very obvious. Not many years since I passed along here, and all that marked the depth of the stream was the apparent strength of the bridge, a slovenly house and barn having no attractions to the traveller. Now the whole mill establishment, consisting of a saw, grist, and oat mill and kiln, a carding and fanning machine, a turning lathe and grindstone, turned by water, under one continuation of connected roofs, together with about a dozen buildings of various descriptions, including the proprietor’s neat dwelling house, would, with the appendage of a Church come within the description of a Yankee village. The situation of the mills is romantic - the creek runs thro’ a large body of intervale and an Island in front appears to shut out its entrance to the river; the whole valley is fertile, and at present is well cultivated; the noise of the water and the occasional sound of the crowbar gives to the whole a business - like appearance. All this is the work of a few years. Mr. Gibson, the enterprising proprietor, has at his own expence made a good landing and road from the river, rendering the access by land or water easy. The mechanical genius displayed by the youngest urchin about the mills, together with the long residence of Mr. Gibson in this country, connected with our prejudice, would lead us to think some share of invention and originality, or rather enterprise, is due to the rising generation. At any rate it may support the doctrine of Johnston, that " something may be made of a Scotchman if he be only caught young "; be this as it may, the whole reflects great credit upon the owner, and if it were in the other Province, Mr. Howe would devote to it a whole page of laudation. Doubtless he would see it, for he is not like our gentlemen Editors, confined in his operations to the town he dwells in. Rising from the intervale, the land is flat, the banks high, the soil light and sandy, and well adapted I should think to the application of gypsum for manure. A great improvement has been made in the appearance of the neat farm, the buildings, the fences, and the large dwelling house has been thoroughly repaired - the present occupier preferring the woeful ornaments of paint, oil, and glass, to the whole parade of old hats and trowsers with which the windows in 1829 were bedecked. Turning to my companion I enquired the cause of this very great change; did you not know, quoth he, that in the overturn of 1826, this property was taken by the Sheriff, sold, and purchased by a merchant in St. John for his brother then in Scotland, who now lives on it. Well, said I, if they should be the means of so settling and improving all the farms sold at their instance, it would in some degree be an equivalent for the lamentation, mourning, and woe brought upon a many a houseless family. It was twilight when we arrived at the ferry, for here the road re-crosses the river to Mr. Fraser’s beautiful farm. The whole country on the opposite side seemed to offer an entirely new scene. Our delay in waiting for the scow led us to think one on each side, kept by seperate ferrymen would be no disadvantage to expeditious travelling.

Words of Sympathy
The following expression of condolence was received and presented to Frederick Burton on the sad occasion of his beloved wife's funeral, by the Rev. Jos. E. Flewelling, accompanying it with a few touching and well chosen remarks of his own. They were feelingly given to Bro.
Frederick Burton from his brethren of L. O. L. No. 66 Benton, N. B.
We have learned that our Grand Master in the court above has summoned your dear wife to labor in His most immediate presence. While we are thankful that her sufferings are at an end, shall we feel sad when we think of you being deprived of a loving helpmate.
We know that human sympathy is helpful so we render that cheerfully. We also know that Divine Sympathy is more precious we therefore pray that the good God above may "lift up the light of his countenance upon you and give you "that peace" which passes all understanding. The place where we stand is holy ground for God has been here and taken a loved friend therefore with bowed head and uncovered feet we approach his throne and say "Thy will be done" We trust Brother you will not be too despondent_Rise up and take life's work and live for the sake of the dear children which God has given you and by so doing you will best show your love for the memory of the dear departed.
We know how cold words seem at this sorrowful time so we shall not multiply them simply reminding you that as her faith sustained her and her hope buoyed her up, so now by charity she has been brought home to God so " be still and mumur not." Once more commending you to God.
We remain your sympathizing brothers.
Signed on behalf of the Lodge.
John Boyd
Worshipful Master
Benton, Sept. 21st, 1900.

At a recent meeting of the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society of Oak Mountain, the following resolution was adopted regarding the loss sustained by the death of Mrs. Burton.
To Frederick Burton;
WHEREAS: It has pleased Almighty God to remove from our midst by yhe cold hand of death our beloved sister therefore.
RESOLVED: That we place on record our profound sorrow at the loss sustained by our society in her death and that we tender you in this your time of bereavement our unfeigned sympathy and counsel you to sorrow not as those without hope. An earnest worker in our society, a large hearted woman, and for her to die was gain, but for her departure from this sphere of labor causes a deep sadness, especially among us with whom she labored so ardently and cheerfully. Our hearts are filled with sorrow for the bereaved home. The saddened hearts so suddenly called upon to mourn elcit our deepest consosence, which we most sincerely offer. We most humbly counsel those bearing the burden of sorrow to look to Him who is the God of consolation and who alone is able and willing to wipe away all tears from our eyes.
Yours Sincerely,Mrs. Thomas Forest, Pres.
Mrs. Wm. F. Johnson, Sec'y.

Where; Oh, Where Are They, Nobody Seems To Know.
Letters have been received recently by friends and relatives from the boys with Lieut. Good in South Africa.
Robert Welsh wrote to his mother from Hopestadt, the letter reaching Woodstock the middle of last week. The writer said that the boys were there, all together, excepting four, who were sick and had left for England. We are looking for the return of Robt. Hughes, but hitherto had no news of any other of the Woodstock quota being invalided. It seems that Hopestadt is not far from Pretoria.
A quite recent despatch from Ottawa says: - No news had been received by the militia department of the departure of the Canadian Artillery and Mounted Rifles from South Africa, although it was announced last week that they would leave about Dec. 1st. It is believed here that Kitchener is endeavoring to keep them a little longer. No doubt the general, realizing the magnitude of the task before him, and appreciating the courage, endurance and resourcefulness of the Canadians, would be very glad to have them remain under his command. It is one of the great merits of Lord Kitchener that he knows, in the military sense, a good thing.
In Thursday's Telegraph appeared the names of a number of invalided soldiers who had arrived on the Parisian, at Halifax, and on the list was the name "
Pte. S. Hughes R. C. A." It further added that Pte. Hughes was sick when he arrived and was obliged to go to the hospital. John Hughes of this town had some idea that this might be his son, and asked Col. Vince to telegraph to an officer at Halifax and, if possible find out. The colonel did as requested.
Mrs. Glew had a letter from her son, George, dated Oct. 6th, and which reached Woodstock a couple of weeks ago. At that time the Woodstock lads were at Kimberley, but they expected to join a "flying column," and putting all things together, it now looks as if they may be, really, on the pursuit of DeWett. DeWett is slippery, but, if our long and strong friend Bob Smith of Lakeville should get his arms once around this flying Dutchman, he'd be apt to stay put.
The Mayor reported for the committee, at Friday evening's meeting of the council. They met with a few of the citizens of the town and talked the matter over. It was decided that when the quota arrives, the mayor and council meet them, that they be presented with an address, and that a meeting of the public be held, in the meantime to make further arrangements for a suitable reception.
Coun. Dibblee suggested that to the report he added that the warden of the county be invited to be the guest of the town when the quota arrive, and that it be suggested that the county council present an address, and, further, that the Hartland Band be invited to assist at the reception. There suggestions were agreed to and the report adopted.
Coun. Dibblee moved that the mayor and council meet
Bombarder Hughes when he arrives, and that the Band be asked to join in, and that further a reception be given him in the Opera House and that His Worship be a committee to take charge of the whole arrangements. This was found agreeable to the council.
Col. Vince received word from Col. Irvine that the Hughes who arrived on the Parisian was not Robert.

The Blaine, Maine, correspondent of the Bangor Daily News, in the issue of the 4th inst. says:
Rev. Joseph Noble of Woodtock, N. B. was in town a few days ago, the guest of his son, W. A. Noble. He is a brother of the late Deacon Enoch Noble of this town and will soon be 88 years of age, the oldest active minister of the gospel in New Brunswick. Entering the Free Baptist ministry in his early manhood, he has constantly devoted his time to that service for over 60 years, enjoys good health and looks upon a drive of 40 or 50 miles with the temperature below zero as a play spell, and recently returned from a trip to New York. As a preacher in the pulpit he is a ready, offhand speaker, and delivers his sermons with force and energy and is highly respected by the clergy of all denominations throughout a large section of New Brunswick. His religion, is of the good old fashioned kind from his standpoint, and no half way Christian can have a celestial bank deposit. A few years ago he was presented with a valuable gold headed cane by the citizens of Woodstock, the mayor of that town making the presentation at a notable gathering of clergymen and members of the F. B. Church.

Body-Snatching in Maine.
N. Y. Sun: A gang of body-snatchers is believed to be traveling over eastern Maine robbing country cemeteries. Two graves have been robbed in the Tilden cemetery this spring, and the body of an aged woman, who died in Aurora under peculiar circumstances, was dug up the night following her interment.
The carriage which was supposed to contain the body was traced as far as Ellsworth, where it was discovered in a livery stable, but the body could not be found. It is believed to have been sent to Boston on a coasting schooner.
About ten years ago a law was passed by the Maine legislature which it was hoped would satisfy the demands of medical students and others for cadavers. The law provided that the bodies of paupers and criminals who died in public institutions without surviving friends to bury them should be sold to the medical colleges for dissection. Statistics showed that such an arrangement would provide about 200 cadavers a year.
No sooner was the law in force than there was a great outcry about the cruelty of dooming a person to the scalpel for no other reason than his poverty, and the law became practically inoperative, and most of the subjects had to be imported from Massachusetts and New York.
It is said that a great cadaver trust has been lately formed in New York city, which has advanced the price of subjects beyond the the reach of poor students, compelling them to resort to the robbing of graves in order to obtain a liberal education. About twelve years ago the body of an adult could be purchased for $100 or less. Now the body of a child ten years of age brings from $100 to $150, while the body of a person who is full grown costs more than $300.
The high rates brought by cadavers in Maine led
Robert Clark of Lakeville to sell his body to a Penobscot County doctor three years ago for $125 cash in hand, Clark retaining the use and control of the property during his life. Papers were drawn up to that effect, and the doctor paid over the money in the presence of witnesses, taking a receipt for the same.
Clark found paying employment for the doctor's property for more than a year, cutting cordwood and clearing land. Then a large tree which he was chopping fell across his back, compelling the tenant to move out inside of a week. When the doctor came with his contractor to get his own, Clark's sisters disputed the title, and after giving the remains a fitting funeral, buried the body in the family lot in the cemetery, though the doctor made a legal battle to prevent them.
As no sheriff could be found to stop a funeral procession, the body was dug up by orders from the doctor. Before he could send it away a sheriff arrested him on a charge of body-snatching, and the case was kept out of court with much trouble when the doctor had surrendered the cadaver, and paid the expense of two funerals.

Lumbering In Madawaska
A Woodstock man Who is Doing Big Work on the Horton Stream.
Mr. A. F. Fawcett is not generally noticed on our streets, when there is anything to be done in the wood business, whereby an honest dollar may be turned. It will be remembered that for several years he was in the last-block business in Canterbury, and that he only gave up the business when the U. S. tariff laws prevented it being profitable. He has now turned his energies in another direction and is the chief manager and director of a big job away up on the Horton river, which empties into Temiscouata lake. Mostly everyone who knows anything worth knowing, is aware of the big business done at Cabano by Mr. Donald Fraser, or more properly speaking, by the firm of D. Fraser & Son. A lumber city is rapidly springing up there, and this summer D. Fraser & Son expect to cut 20,000,000 of lumber at their mill in Cabano. Mr. Fawcett is under contract to supply this mill with 2,000,000 spruce of this 20,000,000 feet of lumber, and he is rapidly filling the bill, with a crew of 50 men, whom he has working on the Horton branch of the Temisquata. His camp is about 30 miles off the line of railway, on the east side of Lake Temiscouata. There are four or five camps and everything is conducted in the most up-to-date fashion. Mr. Fawcett gets on well, with his men, and he feeds them with a bill of fare which the best hotels might imitate. That the grub is so good is largely due to the cook, Mr. Grey of Orland, Me., who has been in the business for many years, several of which have been spent in Mr. Fawcett's employment. He is really an expert and that may in some way account for the fact that the men are more than usually contented. There are a number of men in the camp from this locality. Edward McIlwain of Canterbury may be said to be boss teamster. Edward Macfarlane, brother of John Macfarlane of Woodstock is one of the crew. The foreman of the camps is Isaac Burton of Orland, who is said to be a regular hustler. In fact, Mr. Fawcett is bound to have hustlers with him, and apparently he has succeeded. The hauling this winter has been fine up to within a few days ago, anyway, the teams were hauling from the stump, and Mr. Fawcett had 14000 pieces of spruce in the yards. Mr. Trecartin of Farmer Settlement has a team, and James Dugan, son of Oscar Dugan, young Gibson of Northampton and many others from this section of the county are engaged at this rushing camp. Other operators on the same river are Walter Tompkins of East Florenceville, Wesley Atwaters of Stickney, and James Christie of Middle Simonds. Archie Fraser of D. Fraser & Son, is a thorough business man and the success of the great enterprise is largely due to his energy. The lumber after being sawed at Cabano, is shipped to River du Loup, and from there goes direct to the old country. Mr. Fawcett expects to get through his operations about the end of March. In summer and fall there is good fishing in this district, and in winter the men cut holes in the ice and get all the trout they want.

Letter From Robert Hughes Of E. Battery.
Robert Hughes in a letter to his mother dated June 17th at Campbell with the Canadian Contingent in South Africa says:
I write again to let you know that I am alive and well. We are having a very fair time now : we are all left here to garrison Cempbell: that is all of the boys from home and the Newcastle boys. Capt. Good is here now in charge of us. The boys from home are all well but sorry ? were not in the fight.
Harly Dysart and I were the only ones in it from Woodstock; the rest were all left at Belmont with Capt. Good; they came up here a few days afterwards. I suppose mother you thought I was one of the dead boys. Well, so I thought myself at one time, but I came out all right, thank the Lord. It was a hot place to be in; the bullets went flying around as thick as hailstones. There were 2? of our boys lying dead that were sleeping beside us an hour before. Oh it was hard to see them: but some of us had to meet death and why not I as well as they; but God had ordered it otherwise that time. As long as I live I shall never forget the 29th day of May 1900. I expect we will have lots more of it, but I don't think it will be such a hard fight as that was. Sir Charles Warren who is our general now said it was the hardest fight he had. We were taken unawares as we were all asleep when they crept up on us. But it did not take us long to get to work. Some jumped to horse and some to guns and we were into it in a few minutes. We never had a bite to eat while the fight lasted which was from 6 to 10 o' clock but eating was the last thing we thought of that day.
We do not have a word from the war in Pretoria for we are so far away from there that you would hear the reports of what was being done there before we would. I think we will be back to Woodstock before the year is out any way. So don't worry too much. Since I have come safely through three fights I am beginning to think I may get back home all right. But of all hard countries on man and beast this is the worst, for there is not a blade of grass, and all our horses have is about two handfulls of oats at a meal.
We can't get a stamp nor a bit of paper to write on so you will see what kind of a place it must be. It is a lonesome wilderness with nothing but a farm every ten miles or more. We were at Faber's farm at the big fight, but as you have read of it all long ago I need not say any more.
We were on the march last night and it was raining hard; we came to a little church and I and some others crept in and laid on the floor. It was a fine shelter.

At the last moment he was persuaded to be a candidate again for the election made necessary by his resignation, with the above result.

James Ford Garden

Excerpt: Vancouver Sun newspaper, date unknown.
Article by John Mackie.
A rifle used by one of Vancouver's early mayors during the Riel Rebellion is off to a new home at Fort Steele in the Kootenays.
The Winchester carbine belonged to
James Ford Garden, a native of Woodstock, N.B., who was elected mayor of Vancouver for three one-year terms ( 1898, 1899 and 1900 ). He also served as a Conservative member of the provincial legislature from 1900 to 1909.
Garden was a lieutenant in the intelligence unit of the North-West Mounted Police during the Riel Rebellion. He was wounded in the arm during the decisive battle at Batoche, Saskatchewan, on May 9-12, 1855, and received a medal for his efforts.
He left the force a year later and came to British Columbia, where he resumed his civilian occupation, land surveying. Sometime before his death he donated his old police rifle to the Provincial Land Surveyors Corporation, where it has been displayed in the Victoria headquarters for the last century or so.
But new federal firearms regulations made it hard to register the gun, so the association decided to donate it to a museum. Fort Steele ( which is just outside Cranbrook) was chosen because it is a restored hertiage site with a strong North-West Mounted Police display.
(Garden surveyed part of the town of Cranbrook in the 1800's.)
Garden's name is inscribed on the rifle that was donated to Fort Steele. It is a relatively rare weapon, one of a special order of Winchester Model 1876s that were made for the Royal North-West Mounted Police. Albert historian George Kush said North-West Mounted Police rifles are popular with American collectors, and usually sell for 4,500 to $5,000, depending on condition and provenance.

Gunner Frank Brewer Received A Hearty Welcome Home
Gunner Frank Brewer, of the Woodstock Field Battery was one of the volunteers who went out to South Africa under command of Capt. Good. On account of failing health he was invalided home; and he arrived here Thursday evening. He came by way of Quebec, and was so ill for a few days before arriving at that port that he had to remain a while in the hospital to regain strength to reach home. He came down from Quebec by way of Edmundston, and when he arrived there he was tendered a reception at the Royal Hotel, and was presented with an address.
On his arrival here by the C. P. R. express Thursday afternoon he was met at the station by an immense crowd of citizens. A coach was in attendance and as he stepped out of the car a loud cheer went up from hundreds of voices, and some of his old companions took him on their arms to the coach, while the band played " The Soldiers of the Queen." In the coach were Cols Vince and Dibblee who escorted Gunner Brewer to his home.
In the evening a public reception was given the returned soldier in the Opera House. The house was crowded, when at 8 o'clock Mayor Murphy took the chair.
After a short introductory address and while the band was playing "The Soldier's of the Queen" Gunner Brewer was brought in on the crossed hands of two of his comrades, and seated at the right of the Mayor. Eloquent addresses were delivered by Judge Hannington, and L. A. Currey and C. N. Skinner.
Mr. G. H. Williams sang a military song, Piano accompaniment by Mrs. Mitchell. The speakers were frequently interrupted by enthusiastic applause. The programme was concluded with "God Save The Queen."

An Open Letter to the Public
I thought it was time you heard from me as you generally do about this time of the year. You know there is always a rush in the spring in getting all kinds of work done, especially so in getting your carriages painted. Now to avoid the rush, and to insure yourself a good job, it would be to your advantage to bring your carriages in early to McKenzie, who is bound to please you. Last year was the banner year for customers, and everybody, so far as I know, are thoroughly satisfied, all agreeing they had received good work and fair treatment. When you come in with your wagon and don't happen to know where to go, ask anyone where McKenzie's paint shop is and he will tell you on King st. next to Woollen Mill. No more this time.
Respectfully yours,

Another Lawsuit Between Good People of The Village Opposite Woodstock.
The County Court was in session at Upper Woodstock most of the week. His Honor Judge Stevens presiding.
Among the cases disposed of were the following:-
Mattias Meagher vs. Charles Crockett, action for account for hay sold. Verdict for plaintiff for $80.58. F. B. Carvell for plaintiff, A. B. Connell for defendant.
C. E. Gallagher vs. Wm. Grant and Wm. Grant jr., action on account, verdict for plaintiff for $42.06. Frank Carvell for plaintiff, J. C. Hartley for defendant.

Jas. W. Dalling
and Alice W. Dalling vs. Robt. McElroy, action of tort; damages being claimed for injury to a sleigh and harness and to plaintiff Alice W. Dalling herself.
The first witness in the case was the plaintiff, Mrs. Dalling.
She has resided in Grafton for ten years past, defendant came there, she thought after she did. She had driven by the mill repeatly. She had to pass McElroy's mill in going to town. To defendant's attorney she said there was a road which the witness might have taken if she hadd liked. The greater part of the public travelled the way she had travelled. She explained that on the day in question she was coming from Woodstock in her sleigh. McElroy's horse with a chain was standing out from the mill on the road with a chain attached; In passing her sleigh and harness were smashed, and she received injuries, and was afterwards in the doctor's care.
She thought this particular road by the mill was the best to go by. The main road by the mill has been continuously blocked up by lumber ever since McElroy has been operating the mill. Some years ago her husband was road commissioner , It was between two and four years ago. To her knowledge there was no difficulty between her husband and McElroy. Everybody knew that the commissioner was trying to clear up the road. She did not hear a great deal about it. There were lawsuits connected with it. The road is about the same now as it was before the lawsuit. There is about as much obstruction as ever.
Asked if the road going up from the ice to the main road was a public road, she said that it was a public road, or at least she supposed so. If she had known that this was a private road, she would not have driven on it. At the time of the accident she was travelling over the ice,
Mr. Frank Rankin was just ahead. Mr. McGuire was passing the post near the mill as defendant came along the main road. He turned out and allowed her to pass. From the post to the place where the horse was tied was a distance she could not judge. She was no judge of distances. It was not Mr. McGuire's team which forced her out of the road, although if she had not met McGuire, it perhaps would not have been necessary to run up against the chain. She passed within two or three feet from McGuire's load. She had just passed the hind end when she was on the chain. She did not see the horse till the sleigh struck the chain and the horse started. Both her horse and Mr. Rankine's were simply jogging along. She did not think the horse was pulled off his feet and thrown. When she passed the chain, her team caught, and she was thrown out of her sleigh. McElroy's horse sprang one way and hers another. Nobody made any effort to stop McElroy's horse. Her sleigh was caught on the end of the chain. She noticed McElroy's horse prancing in every direction and her horse in the air. If anyone tried they could have saved her sleigh. McElroy was so excited with the fun, that he did not run to her relief. She would not say that he (McElroy) would wish her hurt or killed. She did not make a habit of driving too close to McElroy's mill.
Frank Rankine was the next witness.
He was driving up the hill and saw Mr. Dalling coming. He said the main road by the mill was obstructed. There was a passage way a horse and chain was sticking out from the end of the mill. The horse was on the main road. It was McElroy's horse the same horse he had seen there a dozen of times. The horse participated in the accident. He drove toward the horse and kept to the east side to pass. A cordwood team was coming and he had to go zig zag in order to get by both teams to the east to get defendant's horse and the west to get by McGuire. For a number of rods the road was filled with lumber of all descriptions. The road was usually that way. This chain was lying across the road and he took his chances of driving on it without its cataching him. He heard a crash, glanced back and the teams seemed to be all mixed up. He gave the reins to his daughter rushed back and Mrs. Dalling was at the head of her team holding the horse. The sleigh was standing on the post which was about three feet high. He did not see anything which led to the sleigh getting on the post. Practically the harness was stripped from Mr. Dalling's horse. He thought the present mill encircled 12 or 14 feet more than the old mill. According to his information a Judge had decided that the mill was well on the road.
Witness said that he and defendant had no communication. They did not speak to each other, they used to. He wanted to have nothing to do with him. There was no dealings of any kind between them.
Jas. W Dalling said the sleigh broken was one that he paid $65 for. He valued it at $45 or $50 the day of the accident. Last fall he was offered $40 for by Nicholas Lester.
After the accident he had the sleigh brought to town. It was all torn to pieces. The harness when it was new was worth $25. It would be worth about $15 at the time of the accident.
To Mr. Hartley witness said at the present time there is not more than ten or fifteen feet of road when the mill is in working order. There is only 37 feet between the post and the corner of the mill. McElroy's horse was ptiching logs down the slip at an early hour the day of the accident.
Robt. McElroy, defendant stated that on the day in question he saw Mrs. Dalling sitting in her sleigh and his horse was down on its side. It jumped up and started off carrying the sleigh with it. The horse had a chain attached and was being used for twitching logs.
Abraham Stone was called as a witness after noon adjournment. He lives in Grafton and is a land surveyor. he made a plan showing the way in which things on the ground are located. The plan produced was one made from actual measurements. To Mr. Carvell he said his son assisted him in making the plan. His son was not sworn. He was not told to put it on the plan.
The defendant resumed his evidence. He claimed there was over 22 feet of a road way, aside from any lumber that might be along the road. Shortly after the accident the commissioner, Gilford Appleby, came to look over the road. He (defendant) had been sawing some special timber for two weeks. The only obstruction was certain lumber he had been sawing. On that day there was a good fair road to travel. He believed on that day a 22 foot road through Grafton. His horse was standing at the corner of the mill. To Mr. Carvell witness said the mill was closed down on Friday morning, the day Mr. Stone made the measurements. The mill shut down on the 4th of July and did not saw till Monday. The road was in as good a condition on the 18th day of March as it is now, or even better. It was not in better condition that day, than any other day since he had been running it. In putting out the slabs, we generally haul them as fast as we turn them out. He made the measurements having a lawsuit view. He had been willing to leave the matter to arbitration, but Mr. Carvell intimated that he told witness he could not advise plaintiff to agree to the arbitrators he named.
Isaac Nevers said he was at McElroys with a load of logs. He was going to get his dinner at the mill and saw Mr. Rankine and Mrs. Dalling coming along. he saw plaintiff drawing in towards the mill. He thought she was going to pass Mr. Rankine. McGuires load of wood was standing in front of Mr. Montgomery's. It was there when he went and came out of the store. McElroys horse was standing by the mill. Reins whiffletree and a chain were attached to the horse. The reins had a big knot in them. Mrs. Dalling 's runner caught in the knot of the reins and this pushed down McElroy's horse. After the accident he ran to plaintiffs assistance. He asked was she hurt and she said " not a bit. I have been expecting this. " He had been at the mill for about an hour before the accident, he was going to the engine house when this occurred. He did not notice any other teams in front of McElroy's store.
Alonzo Clarke lived in Southampton and he was present at the time of the accident. He was in with a load of logs. He was standing on the platform in front of McElroy's store. Mrs. Dalling rig caught in something and the rig was upset.
Mr. Carvell recalled witness Nevers and he said that he hadn't told him about the reins catching the pung in a private conversation they had.
Mr. Hartley __And did you tell Mr. Carvell that there wasn't much that he could say that would help plaintiff's case.
I did tell him that.
This ended the evidence in the case. The jurors were
Frank R. Shaw, J M Hay, C E Hayward, Alex Bell, Murdock McKensie.
F B Carvell and J C Hartley council respectively for the plaintiff and defendant addressed the jury after which the Judge delivered his charge. He said that the law of negligence was one of the most important branches of the law. In this particular case a few points must be borne in mind. To maintain an action for negligence the act must be wilful or the result of negligence. It was not contended that the former case applied and to secure a verdict there must be affirmative proof of negligence. In this case the alleged affirmative proof was the fact that the horse with a chain attached was standing in the roadway. The jury should consider these questions: - Was the chain as described in evidence or the way in which it lay likely to produce an accident ? Was it negligence on the defendant leaving the chain and horse as given in evidence ? Was the chain to which the horse was attached on the highway ? Could Mrs. Dalling have avoided the chain, if she knew the chain was there and that it was likely to be dangerous to go up over it, and not withstanding this chose to drive over it, there being room in the road to avoid it ? He added that the mere fact that there was room on the road to have passed without going over the chain would not excuse defendant from liability, if the plaintiff was driving on the highway and the accident occurred by reason of the chain being in the road.
After deliberating for some time the jury returned a verdict in favor of the plaintiff for $1. One Jury-man failed to agree with the verdict.

A New Brunswick Boy Who Served With Uncle Sam, Now Visiting in Woodstock.
A Fredericton boy who has seen something of the world is
Story McLauchlan, now on a visit to his cousin John McLauchlan of this town. He left Fredericton twelve years ago, and engaged in the printing business in New York City. Afterwards he moved to Maine, and conducted the Narraguagus Times in Cheryfield. He enlisted with the 4th New Jersey, when the Spanish American war began. The heavy work was over when the regiment got to Cuba but they did serviceable duty. After the Cuban campaign was over, Mr. McLauchlan enlisted in the 20th U. S. Regt. under orders for the Philippines.
The regiment arrived at Manila on the 23rd of February, 1899, Col. Wheaton afterwards brigadier-general in command. Mr. McLauchlan was in 12 general actions, besides a number of small affairs. He was severely wounded in a street fight on the outskirts of Manila something less than a year ago. In assisting to put down an insurrestion he was heavily clubbed on the side and from that time until a short time ago has been in the hospital. He was invalided home and was for some time in the army general hospital in Presidio, Cal. Quite recently he was discharged with a surgeon's certficate of disability; The wound injured ligaments about the heart, and Mr. McLauchlan has to be exceedingly careful of himself.
In an interview with him, he says that his attention was called to the number of Canadians serving Uncle Sam in the Philippines. He was on good terms with an officer and on making enquiries found it to be a fact that an unusual large percentage of his regiment were from Canada, and what is even more to the point, about every Canadian was at least a non-commissioned officer. He himself held the rank of corporal.
Respecting the duration of the war or rather the time that it will be necessary to keep a large force on the islands, Mr. McLauchlan says that it will be necessay to keep 30,000 troops there for the next ten years.
When his regiment landed at Manila, Mr. McLaughlan saw the sunken hulls of the ships which Dewey put to the bottom. Without detracting from that admiral's brilliant achievement, he says, that the Spanish ships were not much better than old tubs. The Reina Christina was the best and it was an iron ship, a second class cruiser. He says there is no doubt that the friendly action of the British admiral in Philippine waters saved the United States from serious complications with Europcan powers.
Mr. McLauchlan had served in the Infantry School at Fredericton from 1886 until 1889 and was discharged as corporal.
