Aberaman Compensation Case At the Mountain Ash County Court on Tuesday, Frederick William Hopper, Aberaman, represented by Mr. St. John Francis Williams, applied to terminate payment of compensation to Reginald Kerslake. The respondent was repre- sented by Mr. A. T. James, instructed hy Mr.' Marchant Harris (Mr. W. Thomas' Office, Aberdare). Opening the case, Mr. Williams said that Kers- lake had been employed as a painter by the Powell Duffryn Colliery Co., and left their employ in August, 1911. He was afterwards employed by Mr. Hop- per.-Dr. Geary Grant, Surgeon, of Cardiff, described the condition of Kers- lake when he examined him in Nov., 1912. To the best of witness's belief the man was perfectly normal. He saw no reason why Kerslake should not go back to work.-liv Mr. James: A man feeling languid might attribute it to lead poisoning, and also to many other things.—His Honour Yes, influ- 9 enza and laziness.—Dr. Alfred Howell, assistant physician to the Cardiff In- fnmary, said he cross-examined Kers- iake on February 6th, 1913. There were no symptoms that led him to be- lieve that the respondent was suffering from lead poisoning.—Edgar Coppin, timekeeper at the P.D. Offices, said that Kerslake was offered light work about Dec. 12th last, and he refused to take it. The compensation was reduced to 10s. tid. per week as from Dec. 14th. On Jan. 2, '13, he started the work he refused on Dec. 12th. Reginald Kerslake, the respondent, deposed that Dr. Astbury had cross-examined him on several occasions. He was offered the work of assistant timekeeper on Dec. 13th by Mr. Coppin. He after- wards consulted Dr. Bullen, who ad- vised him not to work. He still had trouble with the heart, and couldn't lift the left arm. He also had pains in the head and eyes.—Dr. Frederick Charles Bullen, Aberaman, had attend- ed Kerslake since May, 1911. He com- plained of pains in the stomach, and in witness' opinion it was due to lead pois- oning. His last examination of re- spondent was last Wednesday, and showed irregular action of the heart, and had lost control of the cardiac nerves.—Dr. Morris, Abercynon, had examined the respondent and found similll" symptoms to rhe last witness, and in his opinion was stiH suffering from lead poisoning. His Honour referred the case to the Medi- cal Referee.
