RIVAL COACH-OWNERS IN COURT.

PALMERSTON NORTH, June?.

A singular case was heard at the Resident Magistrate’s Court arising out of a feud between the rival coach proprietors between here and Woodville. Mr Peters, the present mail contractor, sued Jones and Hunter, the former mail contractors, for a breach of the Post Office Act in suffering to be placed and kept on their coaches the words “ royal mail. ” Mr Fitzherbert, for the defence, showed that the Act did not provide for a penalty for keeping the words on the coaches, and that defendants had not suffered the words to be placed on the coaches, as they were on when they took possession of them. The Resident Magistrate upheld Mr Fitzherbert’s contention and dismissed the case.
