PAGE TEN. THE DAILY COURIER. CONNErLLSVTLL'E. PA. FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 3039. NEWS OF THE COURTS Ice Queen's Return UNIONTOWN, Mar, 3.--In the cose of George U. Smith, receiver o£ Union National Bank of Conncllsville, against Edward Baer, an order was signed by Judge Carr in which second pieUminary objections were sustained, the bill dismissed and costs of the pioceedings placed upon the plaintiff. The plaintiff brought action in equity to rescind a settlement with the defendant depositor of his liability as guarantor of a promissoiy note. In his bill, the pldintifit avers the settlement, which was effected by an agreed set-off, was made by mistake and, unless rescinded, will result in an unlawful preference to the defendant as a depositor. Judge Can' ruled: "Although the plaintiff pleads mistake, the transaction of which he complains discloses no lack of accurate information in regard to the accounts, no error in calculation and no oversight of any material fact. No fraud, misrepresentation, concealment or other inequitable conduct on the part of the defendant Is alleged. "Under these circumstances, it is settled that equity will not relieve against a mistake of law. The rule is that, where a party with knowledge of all the material facts, and without any other special circumstances giving rise to an equity in his behalf, enters into a transacton affecting his interests, rights and liabilities under ignorance of error with respect to the rules of law controlling the case, courts will not, in general, relieve him from the consequences of his mistake." The plaintiff admitted It was an error to have paid the defendant dividends upon $4,011.92 when he should first have deducted $1,325, still due upon the note, and paid dividends only upon the balance of $2,686.56, ·which dividends would then have amounted to 51,477.80 instead of $2,206.58, the latter being an illegal over-payment of 578.75. The bank receiver had sought to have the courts force Baer to pay back the $728.75 and surrender the receiver's certificate he now holds, or return the note. New Amsterdam Casualty Company, New York, in a suit filed with Prothonotary John Brady, seeks to recover $385.36 from Nora E. Mcln- tyre, Uniontown. The action sets forth that on September 18, 1931, a' instance of the defendant, the plaintiff became surety upon a bond to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the sum of $20,000, given by defendant as administratrix of the estate of John J. Mclntyre, deceased The defendant paid the plaintiff thi initial premium of $70 but has failed neglected and refused to pay all an nual renewal premiums from Sep tember 19, 1932, to September 18 1938, amounting to the sum stipu lated in the suit, the action alleges. Convicted last December 10 of paternity charge filed by Ola Ma Orbin, the defendant, James H. Gor don, of near Scottdale, was granted new trial in an order handed down by Judge W. Russell Carr on motion of Defense Attorney E. J. McDanieL The defendant, An March 2, 1938, was indicted. Later, returned a fugitive from justice, his bond of $500 was ordered forfeited. However, he stood trial at the December criminal sessions, was convicted and, on the same day, directed his counsel to file motions for a new trial which, later, 'ere argued before tile court and ustained by Judge Carr. Declaring she \vill contest the di- orce action of her husband, Charles jatts, Fairchance, a petition was led by Mrs. Kalerina Gatts, 52 (Vinona street, through her counsel, Utorney Oscar B. Goldstein, asking court to make a reasonable award or suppo); and for fees to oppose the ction. The husband, in the libel, charged lis wife, whom he married November 7, 1919, in this city, had instituted a course of treatment that endangered .is health and, finally, forced him o withdraw from their home. The \vife denies that she and her hildren by a former marriage had ccorded her husband any ill tieat- ment and petitioned the court 1o award her a "reasonable sum" for support pending disposition of the ction. Suit for divorce was instituted by Victor F. Silveslro, Belle Vernon, against Genevieve B. Silvertro, Charleroi, whom he wed April 14, 934, in Beljevue, Allegheny county. The husband, in the action filed with Prothonotary John J. Brady, charges cruel and barbarous treatment and indignities, declaring that within the last three years his wife las refused to prepare his "meals, refused to take care of his personal wants, neglected and threatened him, humiliated him before his friends, used vile and abusive epithets towards him and has left him upon ;wo occasions. Opinion was handed down by Judge H. S. Dumbauld in the case in which the Department of Public Assistance seeks to recover $194 from Joseph Maciak, Newell, as a result jf old age assistance the plaintiff alleges was not legal according to law because of the status of the defendant The plaintiff charges that Maciak, at the time be sought aid, was the owner of a house and lot at Newell, valued at $600, and a lot and shanty on the Lynn road, valued at $200, and "that by virtue of these assets, is not entitled to old age assistance under the laws of the Commonwealth.' The court, in its ruling, set forth: "If there are circumstances which would entitle the defendant to the assistance which he received, notwithstanding the ownership of this property, ihe existence of such circumstances would be a matter of defense upon the merits to be alleged Waving a greeting to the American shoreline is_ charming Sonja Henic, star of the ice and screen, shown arriving: in New York from a South American cruise.
