      Following from the Commercial Advertiser, Canton, NY
      Tue., Feb. 14, 1933
      A jury was partially drawn in the case of Elizabeth Como as Admx. v. Earl Fleming, an action to recover for the death of a young boy who was hit by the car of defendant while sliding in the city of Ogdensburg and who received injuries form which he soon died. This accident occurred Jan. 3, 1932. In examining the jury, John H. Livingston, attorney for the plaintiff, asked the jury if the fact that the defendant was running a load of booze at the time of the accident would prejudice them. Edmund Fitzgerald for the defendant, was at once on his feet with a motion to withdraw a juror and put the case over on the ground that the question tended to prejudice the case of the defendant, and after some consideration, the motion was granted.

      June 20, 1933
      Wednesday morning saw the reconvening of County Court, and Thursday afternoon the close of the term. The action of Elizabeth Como as Administratrix of Richard Como, a thirteen year old boy, against Earl Fleming, was tried. The parties come from Ogdensburg.
      On the evening of January 3, 1932, Richard Como, his brother and another boy were sliding down Ford Avenue and across Main Street, a much travelled street. His brother went first and crossed Main Street in safety; Richard came next, lying flat on his stomach, and was killed instantly; the third boy saw the car, turned his sled into a snow bank and escaped injury.
      Strange to say no one saw the collision between the sled and car; no one can say whether the sled was in motion or had come to a stop; this is very mportant because under the decisions apparently if the sled were in motion no recovery could be had, while if it had come to a stop perhaps one could be sustained. The boy had no light on his sled and Main Street was not a street on which children were permitted to slide under the terms of any ordinance of the city. One witness testified that the car of the defendant was going between forty and fifty miles an hour just prior to the accident; the defendant, told the boy's mother that he did not see the boy or know he had struck him, and that was the reason he did not sooner report the accident; the Chief of Police said he reported it about three hours after it occurred and said that the reason he did not do so sooner was that he had been in a previous accident and feared if this one were reported it might cost him his license.
      At the close of the plaintiff's case the defense moved for a non-suit, and this being denied went to the jury on the evidence offered by plaintiff and urged that the evidence showed that the boy was undeniably guilty of contributory negligence. The jury struggled with the case several hours, failed to agree and were discharged at six Wednesday night. John J. Livingston represented the plaintiff, Edmund Fitzgerald the defendant.

      - Dec. 20, 1939: The fire department was called to the home of Mrs. Earl Como, 26 Commerce St., at 7:50 last evening where a chimney was burning out. An alarm was sounded from Box 14, New York avenue and Main street. The damage was slight.
