COUNTY COU.RT.-On Monday, before his Honour Judge William Evans. At a previous Court Francis G. Jones, Maesmawr, Caersws, as executor of the estate of the late David Davies Cwm, Llangurig, was defendant in a case in which a man named Owen, who lost a thumb" whilst working on the estate, claimed compen- sation and was awarded 10s a week. On Monday Mr Martin Woosnam applied for a review of the case, so that the executor might be recouped out cf the estate. The reason why he did this was that several creditors were suing Mr Jones that day, one of whom sued for the sum of £ 100. If this one creditor was successful there would be none left for the others. Mr A. L. Careless, Llandrindod, appeared for the claimant, Mrs Margaret Evans, who claimed the sum of .£100 as housekeeper, in the household of the late David Davies. He said that Mr Jones was negligent in not insuring Owen.—His Honour said that he would most likely make an order for the executor to recoup himself.—Mr Woosnam said that the assets of the estate were 4263, and the debts as- certainable.2233 2s, so that they only had a sut- plus of JHO apart from the executor's claim for .£100 and the other claims in Court that day.—The application for the review of the compensation award was granted.—Judgment for plaintiffs in a number of small claims against the estate was given, but on the claim of Margaret Evans Mr Woosnam objected to the case proceeding. An affidavit by plaintiff did not state where a certain document was at present, so that defendant could not examine it -On this ground the case was ad- journed.
