DAMAGES FOR A FAULTY BICYCLE. A case affecting reliability of bicycle tubing came up at Sunderland County Court yesterday. Ernest William Longdeu, iron manufacturer, Sheffield, sued William Newton and Co., cycle salesmen, Sunderland, for damages. The plaintiff hired from the defendant an American bicycle scaling about 241b. As he weighed 12st. he 3sked whether the machine was sufficiently strong, and was assured that it was. He rode about 10 miles when the top of the fork broke, and he was thrown, being rendered insensible. Plaintiff was under medical treatment for several wtseks. The tubiug of the broken machine was'produced in court, and plaintiff's witnesses deposed that it had been drilled with two boles where ib should have been strongest, and bad been burned by being over-exposed to the fire, thus spoiling the fibre of the sleet. Oue witness said in reply to the Junge that the makers must have known it was faulty. Defendant stated thab the machine was one of 70 which he had imported from America. He oalled witnesses to prove that the tubing was not defective, and that the breakage must have been due to a rut in the road or a wren jh of the handles. Judgment was given for the plaintiff for £ 40.
