A MORRISTON PROFEBTT DISPUTE.— Mr. David Isaac, the Under-Sheriff, held a court of irquiry at the Swansea Guild Hall on Wednesday in re John Illtyd Dillwyn Nicbol v. Edward Williams. The original action was brought in the High Court for possession of mesne profits of certain property lately leased by Mr. Euward Williams, of Woodfield-street, Morriston, and the Court found for plaintiff, at the same time ordering a writ of inquiry into the amount of the mesne profits. This latter point was now tried by the Under-Sheriff and a Jury. Mr. Lleufer Thomas (instructed by Mr. T. W. Jamee), ap- peared for plaintiff, and Mr. R. J. Lloyd de- fended. For the plaintiff it was alleged that £80 odd was due to the estate, and that plaintiff's agent had been unable to get a proper account from defendant. For the defence it was con- tended that plaintiff could not make a claim for mesne profits at any period subeequent to an offer to give up possession, and that a party in possession was not a trespasser, and until his title was made void by entry mesne profits could only be recorded from the date of such entry. On these grounds Mr. Lloyd contended he had no case to answer, but he did not desire to shield himself behind that because he knew that Mr. Williams had acted honestly and paid over every penny be had received. The iury found that defendant had paid in all that was owiug, and respectfully suggested that plaintiff should with- draw the statement of an alleged conspiracy. Mr Lleufer Thomas asked for costs, as the proceed- ings were perfectly regular, and said he had great pleasure in withdrawing the suggestion of a con- spiracy. The Under-Sheriff said an application to the Registrar who heard the original action would have to be made as to costs. DEATH OF MRS.
