PROTECTING THE POOR, I A Woman's Right te Her Mangle. I At JDow Uounty Uourr, before Judge Jb rench, Q.C., the case of Bushbridge against Harvey came on for hearing, having been adjourned from last week. The plaintiff, a builder, sought an eject- mant order against the wife of a labourer. The latter denied that she had ever been served with a notice to quit, and stated then; the brokers had been put in, and had seized a mangle by which she earned her living. Judge French then ordered the defendant to enter a counter-clain against the landlord for illegal distress. Plaintiff and his broker were now in attendance. The broker admitted be took the mangle. Judge French (to the woman) Do you earn your living as a washerwoman ? Mrs Harvey Yes 8s a week, and he was told so. Judge French You have broken the law, broker. You will have to he more careful. What business have you to seize thegoodR of poor people by means of which they earn their living ? The fact tha.t they are poor msdees the matter worse. Bushbridge She denies that she had any notice. Here is a copy of it. Judge French I see this notice is on blue paper, with the Royal Arms on it. Is not that coming perilously near a colourable imitation of ooumente of this Court ? Mr Haynes, solicitor, stated that those notices used 'to be very common. There was no doubt they were used for the purpose of intimidating poor and ignorant people. He believed that the authorities had warned some stationers against selling them. Judge French This will not do. Yon must not send in a notice like this, holding it in terrorem over a woman's head for the purpose of exacting rent. You and your broker have broken the law, and you must pay her JE2 as damages. I allow her 5s for expenses. Plaintiff Can that be deducted from the rent she owes ? The Judge Certainly not. Tho money mnstua paid at once.
