(Before E, H. Carew, Esq., R.M.)

C. S. Reeves v, Alfred Boot.—Claim, L 52 10a, for assistance and advice in the floating of a company called the Sandhill Gold Mining Company, Sir R. Stout appeared for plaintiff, and Mr F. R. Chapman for defendant.—Sir R. Stout said that Mr Boot went to Mr Reeves and employed him about the floating of the Sandhill Gold Mining Company at the Shotovcr, and left with him a circular. Mr Boot agreed that out of the 5,000 shares 1,000 should be left in the hands of Mr Reeves to be given as bonus shares to any persons who chose to become the raisers of the company. Mr Boot after a time took the matter out of Mr Reeves's hands and placed it with Mr Holmes. Mr Reeves saw Mr Boot and asked him to pay him for hia trouble and breach of contract. Mr Boot could not expect Mr Reeves to go on worrying about over the matter for nothing, and after getting all ho could out of him he went to another person to float the company. Evidence having been given in support of the claim, Mr Chapman opened the defence by saying that Mr Boot’s evidence would give a very different complexion to the whole affair. Ho only saw Mr Reeves with a view of getting the company floated without giving promoters shares. Mr Boot objected to giving promoters shares, and on finding that Mr Reeves could not (lout the company without giving the promoters shares, he then gave the floating of it to Mr Holmes.—Evidence having boon given for the defence, His Worship intimated that he would reserve judgment.
