SUITS INVOLVING $1600 ARE FILED
Poultney firm is Sued and J. H. Polley is Plaintiff in Other
Two cases, one involving $600 and the other $1000 were filed
with County Clerk H.A. Harman yesterday, both being
returnable at the March term of Rutland County court. In one
case the Hazard Manufacturing company of New York city, a
wire concern, is suing Rice & Co. of Poultney, and in the
other Deputy Sheriff John H. Polley of Fair Haven is suing a
Northampton, Mass., concern claiming the loss of some
goods which the officer once attached.
In the case of the Hazard Manufacturing company against
Rice & Co., the plaintiff company alleges that it holds a
month's notes given by the defendant, dated October 28,
1915, the amount being $196.56 and also alleges that on
October 29 the plaintiff delivered to the defendant company a
plow steel wire rope for which the defendant company
promised to pay $249.60. In neither case has the money
been forthcoming and the concern sues to recover $600
which takes in the interest and other damage. Attorney John
B. McCormick of Granville, NY appears for the plaintiff.
Attachments have been made on Charles Clark and John
Evans of Northampton, Mass., the men having done business
as the Hampshire Slate company of Fair Haven in which
Deputy Polley seeks to recover $1000, the value of 125
squares of slate.
The plaintiff claims that on March 10, 1914, he attached the
125 squares of roofing slate in the case of Morris Francis
against the Champlain Slate company and that in July 14,
1914 the defendant company came into possession of this
