CONWAY COUNTY COURT. The National Eisteddfod Meat Account. On Friday, before Sir H. Lloyd, Richard Medli- cott, Oswald street; G. H. Terry, Belmont road; Fred Thistlewhite, Ernest Thistlewhite, and Joseph E11is-all of Liverpool; were sued by John Jones and Co., Limited, meat purveyors, Llan- dudno, for the sum of JE20, alleged to be due for meat supplied to, them as caterers at the Llan- dudno Eisteddfod. Mr W. D. Henderson, Llan- dudno, appeared for the plaintiffs, and Mr W.. Russell for the defendants Terry and the Thistle- whites, who alleged that they were not in partner- ship with Medlicott. That case against Ellis was withdrawn.—John Jones (who was the chairman of the Eisteddfod Committee) stated that on June 20 he was applied to by the defendant Medlicott to supply meat from his firm for the catering booths at the Eisteddfod. They agreed as to the prices, conditional upon a reference being given. The reference was not sent, but Medlicott came to Llandudno the Saturday before the Eisteddfod and gave a very large order. He asked Medlicott a second time for the reference, but he replied that there was a time when nona would have bean required, and when he could have paid £ 900 for meat on delivery, he having catered at the com- ing of age of Lord Mostyn, but now he was not in that position. Mr Medlicott went on to say that he had others with him in the concern which would enable him to pay for the meat on delivery. Was not that good enough ? The witness replied that it was, and the meat was sent on that under- standing. Owing to inquiries made as to .Mr Medlicott's financial position, the meat would not have been delivered unless they were satisfied as to other names in the concern. When he went on the Eisteddfod grounds he spoke to G. H. Terry and the Thistlewhites, and had been told that Terry was a moneyed man. In reply to an appli- cation for the money, Terry told him that he had not taken enough to pay the expenses; also that he had lent Medlicott money, and was to have that back again. The witness went to Medlicott and told him this, but Medlicott told him empha- tically it was all a lie, and that they were all equally liable. Between them they paid about £ 6. It was stated that a similar case had been before Judge Collier in Liverpool, and it was decided to await hie decision as to whether the parties were in partnership.—Robert Hughes and Sons, auc- tioneers, Llanrwst, for whom Mr W. P. Roberts appeared, sued W. Thomas, butcher, Colwyn Bay, and W. Evans, farmer, Colwyn Bay, for X8 159 Od, on a j bill of exchange. Mr Porter was for the defendants. During the hearing of the case it appeared that the defendant W. Thomas was all the tame interrupting, whereupon his Honour said f\ "I can see what condition you are in I f." a J°urn the case, and you will have to pay day."—Mr E.
