p.1 Three Non-Jury Cases - Selby & Youlden, limited, plaintiffs, and Percy J. Johnston, defendant. The plaintiff's claim is for $445, balance due for a boiler and engine under contract in writing, dated May, 1907. The defence is that the boiler and engine were so imperfect and so unskilfully constructed that it was impossible to get up steam for the purposes of the boat, and that he has never been able to use the boat for that reason. The defendant counterclaims for $1,750 damages for loss of use of boat. Cunningham & Mudie for plaintiffs. Northrup & Roberts for defendant.
