TALGARTH LAW CASE. Judge's Comment on Welsh Family Disputes. In the Chancery Division of the High Court of Justice, on Friday, Mr Justice Younger heard a motion for a writ of attachment in the action of James v. James, as against the defendants, two brothers farming in Breconshire. Mr Swords, who appeared for the. plaintiff, said this was a partnership action between his client and the defen- dants, her brothers. She was plaintiff in an action tried by Mr Justice Sargent, in which accounts were asked for, ard she got judgment in April of this year, as her brothers failed to put in a defence. The brothers having failed to bring in their accounts, au order was made for them to pay by June 12, but they had done nothing in the matter. The property was Wholehouse Farm, Talgarth. His Lordship thought it was hardly desirable to put two farmers into prison in the middle of the hay harvest. Counsel said the brothers were con- tumacious. They had taken no notice of the order of the Court, and it was a serious matter for the plaintiff, whose financial position had been adversely affected by the action of the defendants. The property was a good one, and was left the parties by their mother. His Lordship said he would make the order, but it must lie in the office for over three weeks, and he fixed July 18. He suggested. counsel should see his pro- fessional clients to let all the parties know what had taken place. Mr Justice Younger added, "I do not want this family quarrel to be carried on on the usual Welsh family lines."
