_=-F- Bangor County Court. MONDAY.—Before His Honour Judge Sir tio Lloyd. A RUNNING DOWN CASE. T. I) a vies, car proprietor,Kyffin»Seuare,uei: I'u-.varu Llojd, a. coachman in the employ of Lord Penrhyn, for tl. Mr S. R. Dew, ior the plaintiff, stated that on November 11th, last year, two boys were proceeding up High street in charge of a small car, and close to Messrs Vallance's establish- ment there was a cart standing on the op- posit-e side of the road, which at that part was very narrow. The defendant was driv- ing a pair vr horses, to which was attached a brake, and they were proceeding in the direction of the railway station. Instead ot stopping to wait until the plaintiff's car had passed the other vehicle, standing on thef opposite side, the defendant tried to force his way through, the consequencc be- ing that he ran into the plaintiff's car, wliicli was forced on the pavement, and the shafts were broken. The defendant must have seen the position of the matters, as he was driving in the direction of the plain- tiffs car, so he could sec what was before him. This version was corroborated by a number of witnesses, and, it was also stated that the defendant did not take any notice of the; accident.—The defendant said that he was at the time of the alleged accident driving at a "steady London pace"—about seven miles an hour, and the street at that part was quite wide enough for three carriages. About ten yards in. front of him he saw a little bov who was with the car, and he called out to his brother, who, thereupon, turned round, and the wheel of the car struck against the side of the pave- ment. What happened afterwards he did not know. Julian Chandler, stud groom, Penrhyn Castle, gave testimony to the effect that the boy pulled up, and the wheels of the car struck the kerbstone. The wart of the sand in the cart broke the shaft. He was certain that the brake never touched the plaintiff's car.—In entering judgment for the plaintiff with costs, his Honour ex- pressed the wish that all collision cases might be as simple as this one. SEQUEL TO AN ALLEGED FORGERY. Mr Dew referred to a case in which the plaintiffs were William Owen and Richard Hughes, two working men. These men were employed by a. man named Davies, who was a plasterer, and this person was employed as a sub-contractor to Mr Erasmus Jones, who was building houses at Bethesda. The two plaintiffs brought an action against Da- vies to recover the money due to them from the plaintiff, and they obtained judgment on November 19th last. In the meantime, they discovered that there was money due by Mr Erasmus Jones to Davies for work that he had done under the sub-contract, and the amount of the money due from him was JE17. As a matter of fact, Mr Erasmus Jones had given a cheque to Davies for JL17, but though the cheque was payable to Davies there was an agreement by which the cheques payable to him were given to Mr T. J. Williams, and he could not obtain the money unless Mr T. J. Williams en- dorsed the cheque. In respect of the £ 17 cheque which "was handed to Davies, drawn in the name of Mr T. J. Williams, it was alleged that Davies had forged the en- casement of Mr Williams. Prima facie, it was a debt due by Mr Erasmus Jones for woirk done by Davies, who was entitled to the money.—Upon his Honour's suggestion, the case was adjourned for a month, until the charge of Xirgery against Davies had t!1 been decided. A TRADESMAN AND HIS APPRENTICE An action was heard in which David Pritchard, barber, Dean street, claimed £ 5 from David Edwards, Druid Inn, Dean st. -Mr S. R. Dew, for the plaintiff, stated that the defendant was the guardian cf a boy named Lemuel Templeton, who was ap- prenticed to his client. He, however, broke hiS indenture. The plaintiff stated that he warned the boy not to interfere with a hone, which he valued at 15s, but he broke it, and he was told to inform, his mother of the occurrence. Some time afterwards, Mrs Edwards advised witness, in order that he might be paid for, to deduct its value frcti the boy's wages, which at the tim< were Is 6d weekly.—In answer to Mr Thorn- ton Jones, who appeared for the defend- ant, who counterclaimed for 12s wages due, the plaintiff said that a solicitor's clerk named Williams drew up the agreement. Why was this hedge lawyer asked to do this r-Witn088: To save expenses which the defendant vould have to pay. He had
