A TRAINER'S CLAIM.
(By Telegraph.—Prese association.) THAMES, this day. Considerable interest was manifested in the civil case heard at the Magistrate's Court to-day by Mr. Burgess, in which David Hughes, horse-trainer, sued Henry Dann and James Lynch for £64 os. Plaintiff alleged that the horse Jena had been placed in his hands for training, and that after he had broken her in and got her in good condition, defendants illegally trespassed on his property and removed her. Defendants said that the treatment of the mare by plaintiff was not what it should.have been, and' in consequence of his negligence she was thrown out of.work and was unable to compete in various races in which defendants intended she should run. "Mr. McCormick, of Auckland, appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. Cleridon for defendants. The case is likely to last all day, only plaintiffs evidence and one witness having been taken at the luncheon adjournment. It may be mentioned that the horse recently won races at Takapuna and the Thames.
