A HINT TO RAILWAY GUARDS.
WELLINGTON, May 22.
A peculiar action has been brought against the Wellington-Manawatu Railway Company to recover L2 damages and Ss, the amount of railway fare paid on Easter Monday. Plaintiff and his wife took tickets for Paikakariki, but at Plimmerton the carriage occupied by them was detached from the remainder of the train, and they were left behind. For the defence it was submitted that the guard of the train had called to the passengers to change carriages. His Worship, however, held that the notice was not sufficient, and it was the duty of the guard to specially notify all passengers who wished to change. Judgment was given for 18s, and costs L2 19s 4d.
