DRAPERY DRAMA' Neath Law Suit Resumed in London. In the Chancery Division on Monday Mr. Justice Younger resumed the hearing of the action by Catherine Richards, wife of Brinley Richards, of Neath, claiming that the defendant. Thomas Brown, col- liery owner, Neath, was the trustee for her of three drapers' snaps, and damages for alleged wrongful removal of fixtures and stock. Defendant contended that the businesses were not the property oi Mrs. Richards, but were purchased with money belonging to Brinley Richards, who was an undischarged bankrupt. Mr. Mathew, plamtiff's counsel, urged that for defen- daire to suceet-d Brown's position must be either that he was the owner of the gooq. <vr that ¥ was a trustee. A trustee who bad got possession of goods, as trustee oould never become possessed of those goods for himself without first divesting himself of his trust. The Court was ex- tremely jealous that the position of the trustee should be properly safeguarded, and that the law was very strong on that point. under no possible circumstances could a trustee use the position he held as trustee for his own benefit. He must show that his position as trustee gave him no advantage whatever His Lordehip: The rtory is that Trueman told them nobody would believe them. The wonderful trumpet of Trueman blew, and the walls of Jericho fell. (Laughter.) Mr. Mathew submitted that even if Brown were deceived, and it was the money of Brinley Richards, the plaintiff's bankrupt husband, and thac the latter had commit- ted a criminal offence by concealing the money from his creditors, it made no dif- ference. If Brown received the money as trustee for plaintiJ under a mistalten im- pression as to the real facts, he W3,tI none the^ less her trustee and responsible to her, hut there was no evidence whatever that thert: had been fraud on Brinley part, and the money was his. His Lordsliip: What dividend has been pai' in the bankruptcy? Mr. Ma-ddocks: A lawyers fee--f)e. ad. in the X. (Laughter.) In conclueion, counsel arked the judge W say Brown was not deceived, and to grant a declaration that Brown had oomnfltted a breach of trust in seizing tle grOods and order an inquiry as to damages sustained by plaintiff through defendant's wrongful acia in eelling the goods at an inadequate price, destroying the goodwill of the busi- ness. Mr. Maddocks declared that Brown was made a tool ot :-t) dec~"vc Bmley Rioh&rde's creditors, awl t-rged that the court should not allow the a'd of the law to be invoked to complete the fraud. Even if plaintiff were innocent in the matter, she could not be severed from the acts of uer husband, who acted as her agent in this matter. HIS Lordshop said it w.s a really difficult problem, and be would take time to con- aider it. In Mr. Justice Younger's Court, Chan- cery Division, on Tuesday, Mr. Trueman asked the judge when he would deliver judgment in the r.ction Richards ver?~ £ Brown, as he wished to return to Ne»ith. The Judge: 1 cannot be certain. Yoa may go back. There is no reason why you should stay here. x Mr. Trueman: I must come back for tait judgment. The Judge (severely): 1 don't see why; you are no party to this action. I can't hear you at all. Mr. Trueman then left the court.
