Flour Trust Case.
United Pres3 Association—By Electric Telegraph
Dunedin, May 10 A case m connection with the Flour Millers' Association came before Justice \Villiam6 to-day, when H. Harraway, flourmiller, Green Island, claimed £100 damages from the Association for breach of the agreement. The case is really one of inter • pretation of agreement. Each miller is bound to sell only through the Association, except for export and to a free port, and is bonnd to supply a certain quota of flour. Harraway owns a mill at Gieen Island, and another at Mandeville, and each mill is subject to a separate agreement. His contention is that he can supply' the total quota for both mills from the Green Island mill, thus saving the expense of keeping the Mandeville mill at work. The Association contend this would give him an unfair advantage. Decision was reserved.
