A WELSH ACTION IN LONDON. The case of Peterson v. Lush was tried be- fore His Honour Deputy Judge Horton Smith, Q.C. on Wednesday, in the Westminster County Court. The plaintifl's claim was in respect of grouse shooting on a moor situated partly in Merionethshire and Montgomeryshire, near to Llandrillo. Mr. Leonard S. Lush rented the moor and advertised in The Field,5 for guns,' to which the plaintiff and another London gentleman responded. The advertisement stated the extent of the moor to have been 5,000 acres, but it had been discovered that the acreage was really 1,500 acres. Mr. Gollan, instructed by the plaintiff appeared for him claiming damages for Misrepresentation, and Mr. Trevor Lloyd (instructed by Messrs. Lloyd and Roberts, solicitors, Ruthin) appeared for the defendant. The defence was that al- though there had been an inadvertent mis- statement in the advertisement with regard to the extent of the moor, the bag of grouse, considering the unfavourable season of 1897-8 justified the statement in that respect in the advertisement. After a lengthy hearing judgment was given for the defendant.
