Plaintiff stated that he was a retired brewer, and becoming short of money he sold his book debts to Mr. Jackson, and at Mr. Jackson's request had attended court five times in connection with the debts.— Cross-examined by Mr. Kinsey, plaintiff sa-d hp was now travelling for a wine and spirit merchant. At the time he attended the court in connection with the cases mentioned he was representing the Burton Brewery Company.—Mr. Krnsey: You at first claimed £10. 10s.—Mr. Marston: That was my work. I came down in my price.— Plaintiff admitted that defendant's clerk had paid him 5s. on two occasions and 2s. 6d. on another occasion.—For the defeme, Mr. Kmsey contended that the case must utterly fail. Mr. Jackson and his clerk were prepared to swear that the form of agreement entered into between plaintiff and defendant was identical with a form produced, which contained a clause that the assignor would attend couit to prove the debts when required. What had been paid to plaintiff had been paid as an act of grace on the part of Mr. Jackson and not as a matter of duty.-In course of examination, Mr. Jackson admitted that he had only paid JB2. 10s. for 1;40 worth of debts, remarking that big amounts were never worth more than Is. 6d. in the £ They- had already cost him £ 20 through Mr. Marston's negligence. —Mr. Marston: You say it was through my neglect.

Defendant told witness that he was hard up and had not d. to his name.— His Honour here intervened, and remarked that the clause in the agreement as to attending court did not preclude the person attending from charging reasonable remuneration, although he was giving his services to prove a debt. He was entitled to ordinary and fair remuneration as a witness. Plaintiff would come under the class of a tradesman or clerk. His Honour would there- fore allow plaintiff five days at 7s. 6d. per day and 3s. 8d. per day for travelling expenses, which, w.th the amount already received deducted, would mean judgment for plaintiff for Ll. 10s. lOd.
