HAVERFORDWEST COUNTY COURT. L- A TENBY CASE. DISPUTED CORN BILL. At the last sitting of the Haverfordwest County Court, held before His Honour Judge Bishop, W. D. Griffiths, Fishguard, sued W. H. Thomas and Son, Tenby, for the price of corn supplied. Mr William Evans, solicitor, Fishguard, ap- peared for the plaintiff, and Mr W. G. Eaton Evans, solicitor, for the defendants. Defendant said he received the orders himself from Caleb and William Jenkins and O'Brien, the defendant's servants, and he saw the goods delivered. In cross-examination plaintiff admitted that he had one written order on Mr Thomas's behalf. Mr Eaton Evans produced a copy of the order, which the plaintiff admitted and which, he said, had been brought to him by David Jenkins. On one occasion, Mr Thomas came to plaintiff's shop and offered to pay him for two items, but plaintiff declined to accept payment for a portion of the corn unless he was paid for the whole. Subsequently the plaintiff was re-called by His Honour and produced his ledger in which he said he had entered Thomas's account as the goods were suppled. His Honour suggested that the entries had all been made at the same time. Mr William Evans remarked that the plaintiff was one of the most successful business men in Fishguard, and this was the first case he had ever had it1 the County Court. Ernest Thomas, son of the defendant, and Wil- liam Thomas, the defendant, gave evidence deny- ing liability. The latter said he believed that a mistake had been made by the plaintiff, who had charged him for corn supplied to someone else. His Honour said that if tradesmen supplied goods to unknown people without written orders they must take the risk. Verdict for jEl 7s. 6d., the amount admitted by the defendant.
