SEQUEL TO A LATE FIRE AT BARRY DOCK TOWN. THE VALUE OF A SERVANT'S CLOTHES. At Cardiff County-court on Wednesday (before his Honour Judge Owen) a servant girl named Margaret Davies sued Mr W. H. Price, boot maker, of Barry- road, Barry Dock Town, for S2 7s 7d, the value of her clothes, which were destroyed at a fire on his premises on Christmas Eve last. Mr T. H. Belcher appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr D. Davies for the defendant. -It appeared from the evidence that in the fire the whole of the girl's clothes were destroyed, and the de- fendant received jE420 from the insurance company. Mr Price told her he would send in her application with his own for compensation to the insurance com- pany. She understood Mr Price had obtained the money from the insurance company, but refused to indemnify her. The girl herself having been examined, the defendant was questioned by Mr Belcher. He admitted that he received a gross sum of JE420 from the insurance company, and that he sent in her claim, but the insurance agent said that her clothes were not insured, and he did not accept her claim. However, the money was paid in a lump sum to cover all claims. -His Honour, having satisfied himself that the claim for the servant's clothes .vas included in the settle- ment, said he was surprised that anybody should come into court to defend a case like this. He was glad to say that not only in law but in common sense a man who received money from an insurance company, under such circumstances should indemnify his servant for her losses. He would give judgment for the claim- ant with costs. (Applause, which was at once sup- pressed).
