JUSTICES’ JUSTICE.

TO THE EDITOR.

Sir, —I do not think that the Justices gave a correct decision in the case against Thompson, cab driver, heard in the Police Court last Monday. When a passenger 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 he tells the cabman that he is expecting a friend, who is also going to ride, to come out in a moment 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. —I am, etc., Fair Play. Dunedin, June 5.
