DOG OWNER TO PAY £18 O.C. HAMILTON, this day. The full amount claimed, £18, was awarded by Mr. S. L. Paterson, S.M., in a sheep-worrying case heard in Huntly yesterday. Plaintiff was P. O. Bonham, of Hamilton, and defendants L. Nelson, manager, and T. E. Eyre, owner, of the farm adjoining Bonham's property at Pepepe, near Huntly.

Plaintiff claimed damages for eighteen sheep killed by dogs alleged to belong to defendants.

The magistrate said H. A. Cross, manager for Bonham, was a truthful witness and his evidence was corroborated by his wife and, in two respects, by independent witnesses. The magistrate said he did not consider the evidence of Nelson reliable. Nelson must have known from correspondence from Eyre that sheep had been worried.

The magistrate awarded damages against the owner of the dogs, Nelson. He said Eyre could not be liable, for although he owned the farm, he did not live there and there was no proof that the dogs belonged to him.

Mr. E. F. Clayton-Greene, of Hamilton, appeared' for plaintiff and Mr. J. E. Ray, of Huntly, for defendants.
