ARRAIGNED HERE ON POLYGAl^ CHARGE  Wm. Mack of Winter Harbor Before Judge Benson  IS BOUND OVER TO APRIL  Married To Winter Harbor Woman Is Charged With Having Another Wife In Grand Manan  Charged with polygamy, Williain H. Mack of Winter Haibor, well known to many people of Bar Harbor where he formerly sailed boats for Conners Bros, and for the Pulitzers, was arraigned before Judge Elliott N. Benson here Monday and was bound over to the April term of the supreme court under $1,000 bonds furnished by Alfred Conners and George H. Fifield. The charge of polygamy was brought by Mrs. Fred Miller of Boston, daughter of the Winter Harbor wife of the defendant, on whose complaint he was arrested by Deputy Sheriff F. E. Weston of Winter Harbor Saturday.  When arraigned here Monday, Mr. Mack had secured L. B. Deasy for counsel He waived reading of the warrant, plead not guilty and would say no more.  Mr. Mack came here to Bar Harbor from the Provinces about twelve years ago. ^ About eight years ago he married Mary A. Joy of Winters Harbor and since that time has been engaged in sailing boate and finishing. The charge brought against him is that he also has a lawful wife in Grand Manan. Although Mr. Mack would say nothing to County Attorney H. L. Graham Monday in regard tcv the charge it is reported that his alleged Grand Manan wife had been committed to an insane asylum and that he believed this set him free.  Mr. Mack and his foster daughter are said not to have been on the most agreeable terms according to Sheriff Weston, and the present case is said to arise as the outgrowth of family troubles.

Mrs. Meekam and Miss Merle Mayo sang solos. The visitors didn't forget the eatables either, but brought along their own refreshments and Miss Faith Barron made coffee that couldn't be beat.  After a time of general sociability Mr. and Mrs. Harvey were summoned to appear before tl^ minister. Dr. F. A. Leitch, who was armed with a big package. With a few well chosen words in which was couched much latent humor.

The recipients acknowledged the gifts with thanks for them and for the spirit which prompted them. Mrs. Leitch and Mrs. Willey then read humorous sketches.

Second Again Defeats Visitors—This Time 28 to 22  The Y. M. C. A. Second Team defeated the Seal Harbor A.^A. team for the second time Tuesday night before a crowd of school students by a score of 28 to 22.  The Seal Harbor team showed good form and two of their men showed up especially well. Dodge, the right forward, played a whirlwind game and made his opponent go some during the whole game. In fact three men were placed against him before the game was over. Rodick started against him and Dodge succeeded in shooting three goals off him in the first period. In the second period Richards and Rodick shifted places, but , Dodge kept right on scoring. So in the ' middle of the last half, Emery, the junior A merry party of young people have team guard, was sent in for Richards | been at^ Eyrie Lodp. the summe^^ resi-and the local team showed up to much  A grand carnival with booths under the charge of attendants dressed in all sorts of humorous costumes as well as those of foreign lands and with music throughout afternoon and evening and a program in the evening, all this in a word, is the plan of the Ladies' Auxiliary of the Y. M. C. A. for something new to take the place of the annual supper. The event will come the last week of January, but the exact date has not yet been decided upon. In the reading room of the association building will be a music booth where a Victrola will be played throughout the afternoon and evening. The country store, which will also be located in the reading room, will be attended by clerks in farmers' costumes. Here all produce from the country may be obtained.

The tea and hot chocolate booth will be attended by the little Japanese girls.  During the entire afternoon an orchestra will play in the gymnasium, and in the evening there will be a program consisting of selections by the orchestra, readings, 'cello, violin and piano solos, and quaitet singing.  The plans for such a grand festive occasion were proposed and discussed at the regular meeting of the auxiliary executive committee Tuesday afternoon, the members of the committee being Mrs. Vernon G. Wasgatt, chairman; Mrs. Arno Cleaves, Mrs. Frank Spratt, Mrs. Ernest Palmer, Mrs. Benjamin Hadley, Mis. C. B. A. Bryant, Mis Corydon Richardson and Mrs. Frank Alley.  HON. OAKLEY C. CURTIS GOVERNOR-ELECT WHO TAKES OATH OF OFFICE ON THURSDAY  WILL BORROW $25,000  Treasurer Paine Believes It Policy—His Figures  Best  was  ENGAGEMENT PARTY HERE  Twenty-five thousand dollars raised at the special town meeting Wednesday as easily as if it had been twenty-five cents. Hardly any opposition was made. Treasurer Charles F. Paine told the town how much was needed and when he put the motion that the town be authorized to borrow such sum or sums of money as would be necessary to pay the bills of the town contracted or to be contracted until the regular meeting in March, the sum not to be greater than $25,000, and to issue the town's negotiable notes for the same, the measure was easily carried.  The meeting was called to order by Town Clerk W. H. Sherman and H. D. Wakefield was elected moderator. Mr. Paine when called upon for a statement of the reasons ' making it necessary to borrow money for the purpose set forth in the warrant, said it was not absolutely necessary to borrow a large sum of money as the sele2tmen could issue town orders and these :ould be carried in the  bui he did not think that was a good business proposition.  He said some of the reasons for the shortage of funds were overdrafts in some of the departments and unpaid taxes, the latter amounting to $11,000, which sum, however, only exceeds by about $1,000 the amount of unpaid taxes at this time a year ago.  Mr. Paine stated that it would require a loan of between $7,000 and $8,-000 to square the town's accounts to Jan. r. There is due, he said, about $18,000, on the state tax of $32,000. which must be fJaid by the first of January and there is in the town treasu-ary $1,2.000.  Judging from last year it will cost about $20,000 to run the town from Jan. 1 until the annual ♦ meeting in March, so that ^"ith what money was on hand and the taxes that would be paid in. Treasurer Paine was of the opinion that the town could pay its bills until the March meeting by bor-rop'ing $25,000.

Emery, while lighter than the rest of the players on the floor, was by far the fastest. He kept the ball away from the Seal Harbor man and kept it well down the floor. With his help. Silk and Suminsby got in some fast scoring in the last part of the game. Grant of Seal. Harbor also showed up in good shape. In the last period he made a number of fine shots, getting back to his man in time to cover him.  The first half was started with a goal from the floor by Suminsby,* and Dodge of the visitors came in for his basket in the next play. The score at the end of the half was 10 to 8 for the home t6am.  In the last half Grant did the largest part of the work for the Seal Harbor boys. Silk and Suminsby did all the scoring for the local team, but it ^yas on account of the fine passing game put up by the rest of the team. In this half Silk secured five fioor goals with a chance for abput ten more and four goals from the foul line. Suminsby came up for two floor goals. The game ended with the score standing 28 to 22 in favor of the home team. The summary: Y. M. C. A. 2nd S. H. A. A.

FRATERNITY BALL PLEASING  The fraternity ball given at the Casino Wednesday evening was a very pleasing time for all, and a large niimber were in attendance. The Casino was simpty l)ut attractively dcK^rated, and excellent music for the evening was furnished by Wescott's orchestra which is rapidly gaining favor with the dancers. All the latest steps were in evidenci and although there w^e no solo dances, those in the gallery were kept busy watching the different couples and thm did nop" seem to be many faces wearing the disgusted look, as was the caaa irach a slioit time ago.  dence of Dr. and Mrs. Augustus Thorn-dike here, this week following the announcement of the engagement of their daughter, Miss Mary, to Lyneham Crocker, Harvard '11, son of the late George G.
