p.3 In The Maritime Court - Yesterday Thomas Donnelly was on the stand from 11 o'clock to 6 o'clock at the Maritime Court, in the case of Donnelly vs. Ross. He testified that the wrecking company gave him the privilege of making the contract in his own behalf. This morning Capt. Merriman took the stand. The case will probably last for some days. The fight is a triangular one, and must be quite remunerative for the lawyers. Dr. E.H. Smythe appears for Donnelly; J.L. Whiting for the wrecking company; and Kirkpatrick & Rogers for Senator Ross.


Most of Calvin's schooners have gone into winter quarters.
