J. B. JOEL SUED. ——— "PRINCE PALATINE" PURCHASE OF FAMOUS RACEHORSE. The hearing was continued in the King's Bench on Wednesday of the action in which Capt. Thomas Henry Browne, retired Army officer, claims from Mr. J. B. Joel, the well- known city magnate, £ 2,000 commission which plaintiff says is due to him on the purchase by defendant of the racehorse .Prinoe Palatine. Mr. Joel gave evidence and said he never at any time commissioned plaintiff to purchase the horse. He never authorised Capt. Browne to offer £ 45,COO for the ani- ma l and never authorised him to make any definite offer for the horse at the Newmar- ket October meeting. Plaintiff said lie. waa NEGOTIATING FOR LORD ST. DAVIDS in connection with the horse, but witness made no objection. Had he been his (wit- ness's) agent ho should most certainly hava objected at Goodwood. After he had purchas- ed Prince Palatine plaintiff came and con- gratulated witness. He came again a second time and said he had been badly treated by Mr. Pilkington, and asked wit- ness to do all he could to help him to get his commission. Witness added that the statement that he discussed the question of purchase of Prince Palatine with Capt. Browne at Childwickhury was a fabrication. Mr. Pilkington, the former owner of Prince Palatine, deposed that in Decem- ber, 1912. piaintift told him he represent- ed Lord St. David's. Lord St. David's next gave evidence of a. suggestion of his to prevent the horsa leaving the country. Witness had been referred to plaintiff. jYerdict in the "Prince Palatine i Case. I Case. i ?
