JUSTICES' JUSTICE.

TO THE EDITOR.

Sir,—l do not think that the Justices gave a correct decision in the case against Thompson, cab driver, board in the Police Court last Monday. When a passenfcf-r hails a vehicle in the street he is not supposed to get into the cab while in motion, but must wait till it is stopped ; and if be tells the cabman that he is expecting a friend, who is also going to ride, to come out in a momeot from one of the adjacent shops, I think that the cabman is justified in waiting. However, the cabman was fined, and the decision cannot be altered. A cabman must also walk his horse across a crossing, and not run it. I think, also, that in the face of the evidence for the defence, the decision of the Bench was a wrong one. —lam, etc., Fair Pi.ay. Dunedin, June 5.
