THE ABERDARE RACING DISPUTE. An important appeal case from Aberdare came on for hearing at the Queen's Beneh Division of the High Court of Justice on Thursday, 'l)eforo Mr. Justice Wright and Mr. Justice Wills. The particu- lars of the case were to the effect that the plaintiff O'Sullivan and a man by the name of Hughes, agreed to run a race for £5 a-eide, and each of the parties de*,waited the money with the defendant, James Thomas, who was the stakeholder, that was to pay over the £10 to the winner of the race. The race was run and the plaintiff lost. Being dissatisfied with the result he asked for the return of hit money, but Mr. Thomas refused, and ttill retained the money. The question to be settled, therefore was whether or not a person who deposited a sum of money to abide the result of a wager, was entitled to sue to get his money back. The case had been previously heard at the Aberdare County Court, and this was an appeal by the defendant against the judgment of His Honour Judge Gwilym Williams, who bad given judgment in favour of the plaintiff for the sum claimed. Mr Montague Lush appeared for the defendant, the appellant, and Mr. W. Evana represented the plain- tiff, the respondent.—Mr. Justice Wills said that as the question was one of some difficulty the Court would take time to consider its judgment.
