I Hotel Agreement Dispute. LLANELLY ACTION IN CHANCERY. I Mr. Justice Warrington, in the Chancery Division on Thursday, had before him an I action brought by Mr. Robert Hughes, resid- ing at Leonard's Temperance Hotel, Llanelly, I to recover from Mr Joseph Charles Edmunds of Senghenydd, near Cardiff, damages for al- leged breach of agreement, to grant him a lease of the Tymelyn Hotel There were three agreements, and the defendant alleged that the final contract, now sued on, was obtained from him by duress writs having been issued against him claiming heavy damages for al- leged breach of agreement, and he was so frightened and intimidated that lie did not appreciate the effect of the, agreement when: he signed it. He counterclaimed for e400 damages for alleged breach by the plaintiff of one of the earlier agreements, dated June 13, 1908. I Mr Rowden, K.C., for the plaintiff, admitted I.. that two writs were issued by his client, but said that the two earlier agreements were abandoned, and the third agreement executed after a perfectly friendly discussion, He de- nied the alleged threats. Mr. Hughes, the plaintiff, said he was an ex-master mariner. Early last year lie was living at Cardiff, and was looking out for an hotel. He did not know then that Mr. Ed, munds was only a part owner of the hotel and trustee of the other shares. On the date that the final cgreement was alleged to have been obtained by duress there were present at the interview witness, his wife, the defendant, and Mr. Andrews, a solicitor. Witness de- nied that he or Mr. Andrews had ever threa- tened anything The agreement was put into writing, defendant waiting half, and Mr And- rews the other. There was a question about ¡ the transfer, and witness then heard for the first time that defendant was only part owner but that he had full authority to act for the other owners. Defendant told witness that he would make a good tenant, but a few days later he repudiated the agreement. The hearing was adjourned until Tuesday. The hearing was resumed on Tuesday, when plaintiff gave further evidence as to the ex- panses he incurred in going to LlaneHy from Cardiff. He denied having intimidated or frightened defendant into signing the agree- ment. The hearing was again adjourned.
