APPEAL FROM THE LLANRWST COUNTY COURT. THIS was an appeal from the decision of his Honour, Sir Horatio Lloyd, given in Sep- tember last at Ll&nrwst, and came on for bearing on the 13th inst, in the Divisional Court before their.Lordships, Justices Wills and Wright. The action in the first instance was a claim for R20 and interest by Mrs. Davies, Machno Hotel, against Robert Jones, Pen- machno, on a Plomisory note given by de- fendants to plaintiff's father. The defendant at the trial denied that there was any money due from him, and that all he had owed had been repaid, and also denied that a note endorsed on the bill by the plaintiff's mother,5to the effect that in- teres had been been paid in 1891, was true. The learned County Court Judge, after a lengthy hearing gave judgment for the plaintiff for £24 17s. and commented some- what strongly on the evidence in support of the defendant's case. The defendant now appealed against this decision on the ground that the learned judge was wrong in holding that the before mentioned note on the back of the promis- sory note was evidence of money having been paid. Mr. D.Bowen Rowlands, Barrister at Law,instructed by Messrs Robins Billings and Co., agents for Messrs. David Jones and Roberts, solicitors, Llanrwst, appeared for the appellant, and Mr. Barnard Lailey, in- structed Mr. J. T; Lewis, agent for Mr. E. Davies Jones, solicitor, Llanrwst, for the res- pondent. Objection was taken to the appeal on the ground that no objection was taken to the giving of the note in evidence at the trial at the County Court by the defendant's solicitor, an<^that the judge was not reques- ted to make a note. This latter fact the judge confirmed by letter to the plaintiff's solicitor, and this letter having been ban- ded to the judges, and the same having been discussed, they dismissed the appeal with costs.
