p.3 The Assizes

Calvin vs. Collinsby Rafting Co. - An action brought by Calvin and Breck against the Collinsby Rafting Co. for the towage of a raft from Collinsby to Quebec by the tug Bay of Quinte. The case is tried before a special jury, and is of a very technical character. Many of the witnesses to be examined are French, which necessitates the use of an interpreter. Up till 2:30 only two witnesses had been examined, and the case will probably last a couple of days. Mr. B.M. Britton, Q.C. and Mr. G.A. Kirkpatrick, are for the plaintiffs; and Messrs. Bethune, Q.C., McIntyre and Walkem for the defendants.
