LLANRWST. SUDDEN DEATH. Terribly sudden was the death of Mrs. Wynne. Eagles Hotel, on Saturday night last, and it has cast quite a gloom over the whole town. Mrs. Wynne, who was in her usual health, retired early. Miss Hughes, her niece, shortly visited the bedroom, and found Mrs. Wynne in a knee- ling position by the bedside, and life was extinct. Much sympathy is felt with Mr. WVDlie and family in their great bereavement. The funeral, which was private, took place on Wednesday, at Zion Cemetry, the Reverend D. S. Thomas officiating. LAW CASE. In the chancery division of the High Court of Justice on Friday last, before Mr. Justice Kekewich, Mr. Renshaw, Q.C., in a motion in the action of Ashley v. Ashley, said he had a motion on behalf of the plaintiff for an injunc- tion to restrain Mrs. Alice Louisa Ashley, her servants, her agents, and workmen from cut- ting several ornamental timber on am estate at Llanrwst, North Wales, subject to a settlement dated 19th December, 1892. Mr. Warmington, Q.C., who appeared for the defendant, said he was prepared, on behalf of Mrs. Ashley, to give an undertaking, pending j the trial of the action, not to cut any more ornamental timber. The learned council, how- ever, staged that certain trees had been ringed, and those must be cut down, or they would otherwise rot. It was arranged that the parties should agree upon nominating some gentleman in the district who should say which ringed trees it was necessary to cut down. On this undertaking and arrangement, the motion was ordered to stand over until the trial of the action, the hearing of which, it was stated, would be expedited at much as pos- sible. COUNTY COURT. At this Court on Friday, Judge Sir H. Lloyd sat until a late hour, considerable time being occupied with a ease in which F. Brackshaw, auctioneer, Llandadno, and Jokn Hughes, poulterer, Mostyn-street, were the parties com- cerned. Mr. Bone appeared for Brnekshaw, and Mr. Bryn Roberts, M. P. (instructed by Mr. E. W. Johnson) for Hughes. It seems that Hughes sold to Brackshaw 1,2841b. of feathers at 4i. per lb, that claiming JE24. Is. 6d. The latter disposed of the feathers to the London and Continental Feathets Co., Boston, together with other bags from other dealers he purchased in Llandudno, the price 9d. per lb. It was contended for Bruckshaw that he bought the feathers from Hnghes according to sample, and that the bulk was not equal to the sample, that the Company refused the feathers upon arrival at Boston, and that he therefore lost the difference between 4. and 9d. per lb., in consequence of which heeounter- claimed from Haghes for £ 24. Is. 6d. His Honour held that there was no war- ranty, and that Hughes was entitled to succeed both upon the claim and counter-claim. Judg- ment was given accordingly. An action was brought by S. London, quarry- proprietor, Bettws y-Coed, against the North Western Railway Company, to recover £ 4. 19., Western Railway Company, to recover £ 4. 19., value of slabs consigned to Whalley. They were sent at owner's risk, but the plaintiff pleaded that on arrival they were smashed to pieces, shewing that there must have been gross negligence by the Company. Mr. W. Roberts was for the plaintiff, and Mr. Fenna for the defendants. His Honour gave judgment for the plaintiff for £ 4. 191., less 12s, present value of theslates. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.
