At Nebth County Police Court on Thurs- day the hearing was resumed in the action brought against Brinley Richards, a local draper, by Clement Robert Trueman, the well-known litigant, who alleged certain fraudulent transactions against the defend- ant in connection with the letter's bank- ruptcy. Ms. F. Shipton represented the defend- ant. Mr. W. B. Trick, J.P., auctioneer and val-tier, Ne-ath, was the first witness called by the prosecutor, who subpoenaed him to give eviden. with regard to the alleged business transactions between witness and defendant. Mr. Trick produced some books and said that because his clerk was with the colours he could not find any other books dealing with business transactions with defendant. During his cross-ex-imination, Mr. Trick remarked to prosecutor, When you say we want to know this or that, whom do you mean by we ? Mr. Trueman H.M. the King and-my--etf. (Laughter.) Mr. Shipton A-hot about justice? Mr. Trueman I represent justice. (Re- newed laughter.) Mr. Shipton I am sorry. Mr. Trueman You will be. Mr. Trick, in further evidence, said that he owed defendant nothing and defendant had not paid him any losses in respect of a money lending transaction. When the court resumed Mr. Trueman, ad- dressing the Bench, said that if the justices thought this was an action which ought not to have been brought fte was prepared to leave the responsibility in the hands of their Worships.
