Mr Super- intendent Bent attended on the part of the Commissioners to support the summons. Wr Crombie then explained that the cattle had been removed under a misapprehen- sion on the part of the officers of the company, who were entitled to carry from the Cattle Market. H" had a cer- tificate stating that the cattle were perfectly sound, and also for their removal to their railway. The company's officers fancied that the metropolis meant the metropoli- tan police district, and it appeared that the boundary on their line terminated at Barnes. This was the first case of the kind, and under the eircumstanns he must plead guilty, and asked for the infliction of a nominal penalty. Mr Bent said there bad been a mistake. The officer of tbe cattle market had misinformed the driver. Aa soon as he (Mr Bent) found it out he sent to the cattle- market, and stopped the practice. Mr Dayman said mistakes were committed every day by penons who did Dot seem to have read the general orders, which said that no cattle should be removed from the metropolis. Thia led to an argument between Mr Crombie and the magis- trate, who said that the metropolis was like a trap. Once the cattle entered the metropolis, there was no power to remove them out. Mr Crombie said the company were constantly removing cattle to Portsmouth for the Govern- ment, to Southampton, and other places, whete there was no power to receive them. Mr Dayman thought the,, company were wrong. He also said that he understood it was intended to enlarge thf area co-extensive with the metropolitan polio* district. At present the orders acted rather hard upon thebutehers, who were just outside the, boundary, as there was not sufficient accommodation irw the metropolis for the slaughter of c&ttlo, He Uaea fined 214
