BARRY COUNTY COURT. A number of uncontested cases were disposed of at Barry County County Court on Tuesday last by Mr A. Jackson, the registrar, the following cases coming before his Honour Judge Owen AN ALLEGED INSANITARY HOUSE. Thomas C. Clarke, coaltrimmer," Cadoxton, claimed £ 16 from Thomas S. Bomash, of Cardiff. Mr J. A. Hughes, solicitor, Barry, appeared for the complainant, and Mr G. F. Forsdike, solicitor, Cardiff, defended.—Clarke said he lived in one of defendant's houses in Church-road, Cadoxton, from June, 1904, till December, 1905. Mr Bomash agreed to keep the outside of the premises in repair. He went to Cardiff about five times specially to see Mr Bomash, because the inside of the house had become very damp, but each time he was diappointed. He had also repeatedly mentioned the matter to the house agent (Mr Rees Phillips.) Clarke added that on account of the dampness his wife had suffered a severe illness. He bad renovated the house himself, and left at the doctor's orders.—Plaintiffs' wife was called, and said she only suffered from typhoid fever before going to this house. Dr E. J. H. Budge stated that the woman was suffering from con- sumption and rheumatic pains. He did not cansider the house was fit for habitation. Mr S. Sommerfield, town sanitary inspector, proved having complained to defendant of the insanitary state of the house.—Defendant swore that Clarke .bad not asked him to do any repairs to the house. The first notification he received was from the sanitary inspector.—Mr Rees Phillips, house agent. also denied having any notice from the plaintiff or his wife till last November.—His Honour gave judgment for defendant on the ground that suffi- cient notice of the repairs had not been given to the landlord. The Judge also expressed the opinion that the woman's illness was not caused by the dampness of the house. COAL-TIPPER'S COMPENSATION. Mr J. Sankey, B.A.L., Cardiff, intimated that the compensation case between the Barry Railway Company (on whose behalf he appeared) and John Thomas Lye, a coal-tipper, of 28, Phyllis-street, Barry Island, had been settled, the Company- having agreed to pay the man 2200 and costs on Scale C.—His Honour consented to an order for this amount in full discharge of the claim.—Mr A. Parsons, B.A.L., Cardiff, was for the claimant.
