CARNARVON COUNTY COURT ACTION AGAINST A MOTORIST. WEDNESDAY.âBefore his Honour Judge Moss. A BARGAIN.âRobert Roberts, Hen Gapel, Moeltryfan, sued Hugh Roberts, Park, of the same neighbourhood, in respect of the exchange of a car and a foal. The plaintilf had a car and saddle, which lie ai ranged to exchange with the defendant for a foal, valued at six guineas. It -was the plaintiff's case that the exchange was unconditional, but the defendant con- tended that it was a condition of the trans- action that, the car should fit a. pony 13 hands high, and that when tried it was found to be too small for his purpose. He had conse- quently declined to hand over the foal.âMr Hamlet Roberts appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Richard Roberts for the defendant.â His Honour, having heard several witnesses on both sid^s, held that there was a bargain, and gave judgment for the plaintiff for the foal or six guineas. CLAIM FOR INJURIES TO SHIRE HORSiE.â-Charles Williams, farmer, Ty.wyn, 'Clynnog, for whom Mr Hamlet Roberts ap- peared, brought an action aigainst Evan Jones and Co., cycle dealers, Carnarvon, to recover La5 by way of damages for injuries caused to a shire horse owiing to the alleged negligent driving of a motor tri-car by the defendants' driver.âMr J. T. Roberts was for the defen- dants. It was said that on the 10th August last the plaintiff was travelling from a farm called Dolgynfydd to Aden, in the parish of Llanddeinioleu. When on the road near Pont- rug he saw a motor tri-car coming from the opposite direction at a very rapid pace, and swerving from one side to the other. Seeing that the car was being dr.iven recklessly, and would be likely to injure the horse, the plain tiff held up hi&. hand, and backoned him to stop. The driver took no notice of that, with the result that the car came up, the horse reared, and fell on his head against the wall, and sustained injuries. It was taken to a farm close by and attended by a veterinary surgeon. The horse was .incapacitated for a weoek, and it was contended that the plaintiff had thereby sustained considerable pecuniary loss.âThe plaintiff, in tht course of his evi- dence, said that he paid P,80 for the horse two years ago. The. day after the accident he called upon R. Lloyd Jones, one of the defen- dants, who said' that he knew nothing at all about the matter. He thereupon called a policeman to interview Jones, and a conversa- tion ensued between the two, the purport of which he (the witness) could not give.âRe- plying to Mr J. T. Roberts, the plaintiff said that he had never seen a motor-car driven at such a pace as this was. He would not be surprised to hear that ,it went at the rate of 60 miles an hour (laughter).âJoseph Jones, Llanrug, gave evidenoe'to the effect that he saw the motor-car in question proceeding along the road at a very high rate at the time spoken °f by the plaintiff. It seemed like going, 60 miles an hour.âHis Honour: It is very few people who are able to jud'ge the speed of cars. --G. Jones Roberts, veterinary surgeon, de- scribed the wounds on thet horse. The horse was of less value now after the accident.âMr J. T. Roberts submitted that upon the evi- dence of the plaintiff it was hardly likely that what was related took place. It was an ad- mitted fact that the horse was not afraid of motor cars, but was quite accustomed to them. They had also got in evidence that the veterin- ary surgeon had actually passed the horse on a narrow country road with a motor-bicycle travelling at the rate of 16 or 18 miles an hour, and that the horse, took no notice. That being the nature of the. animal, was it likely that the owner would have made any signal to a man driving a small tri-car up hill to stop. The whole thing turned upon tliat.-Fred Wee don, a mechanic ia the employ of the defendant, said that on the day in question he went to Brynbras Castle in the tri-car to repair a Panhard ma.chine belonging to Mr Barnard. In returning he went dowin the hill at a slow pace with the clutoh in and the foot brake on. When he came to a corner in the road he saw the stallion. He was then on the left side of toe road. The man in charge of the stallion did nothing, and made no motion until witness ,Qot within about 26 yards of him. The man then gave him some kind of a signal, which he took to mean anything. Witness stopped for safety, and went to the right hand side, and tbe stallion passed him on the right. After the animal passed it reared, but came down on its feet right enoug^h. Nothing happened to the animal while witness was there, and he went on.-P.. Lloyd Jotnes, a member of the defendant firm, having given evidence, his Honour, in jgiving judgment, said that the defendants story was absolutely inconsistent with the admitted facts. He gave judgment for the plaintiff for 214.
