I POLLUTION OF RIVERS. On Saturday Mr. Beits, of Brent Lodge, Hauwell, was oBllIUUlonod before the Brentford magistrates, at the instance of the Thames Con- servancy Board, for causing foul matter to flow into the liiver Brent, within ten miles of the Thames. Mr. Payne, solicitor to the Thames Con- servancy Board, called evidence showing that the defendant had been served with notice to cease polluting the stream, but that he had failed to comply with it, a sample of the water taken from the river noar Brent Lodge, on September 21 last, being described by Mr. Wigner, the board's analyst, as offensive and polluting liquid, quite unfit to run into the Thames or any of its tribu- taries. Defendant asserted that the sample of liquid that had been analysed did not come from his premises, but the bench were satisfied that it did, and fined him jE5, and 10s. in respect of every day that the nuisance was allowed to continue.
