Thts Duncdin Brewery Company v. Johanna IV Lean.— Claim, L 7 7a 2d, for beer supplied Mr Sim appeared for the plaintiffs —After .cadence, judgment Mas given for the amount ckiced, with costs. Walter Powell Lewis v. Jos.o£>h Hatch.— Claim, L2l 10s f)d, being balance oi wages due to plaintiff as master of the Awarua and moneys paid by him on behalf of the defendant, Mr W. Stout appeared for the plaintiff ;Mr Hagiiitt for the defendant.—ln this previously-heari case His Worship gave judgment as follos/a.:—"The agreement made by defendant's iefctar ,of January 22 and plaintiff's acceptance of tfeeeffer is for Li2 ner month. The ship's articles (n reference ic plaintiffs engagement refer back to this and, whether the agreement is read by ifeelf or together with the articles, I think, u{,£? the authority of Taylor v. Laird (25 L.J., fcich. 334), plaintiff hex at any rate earned and has a ?ight of action for«&ch month's service he haw completed. Button v. Thompson (14 L.E.", C.P,, 330) is also another authority upon the point A-8 to wh.eth.er defendant assented to plaintiff leaving his employ, J. think the probability is fclaat he did do ao. Tiiercjs oath against oath to to whether defe#danfc promised to pay plaintiff «p to the date o,f leaving—and lam not satisfied that Jhe, did do so—without which he cannot recover ipr the brokew jnontu. I think the items dlis.puted in the disbursement account are nofc unreasonable charges, and allow them to plaintiff.—Judgment for plaintiff for Ll2 lis and costs (L 3 55)."
