BREACH OF PROMISE CASE
A SCANDALOUS BUSINESS. Press Association—By Telegraph—Copyrigba SYDNEY, November 18. Annie Rice obtained a verdict of £IOO against James Lloyd fur breach of promise of marriage. Evidence for the plaintiff set forth that Lloyd, after formally becoming engaged to her. arranged to marry another girl. Plaintiff’s sister objected to the marriage, and the officiating clergyman stopped the ceremony. The adherents of the two parties were present in strong force, and created a scene. The police were called to the church, which they cleared. The officiating clergyman gave evidence that the verger told him that people inside and outside the church were armed with revolvers. He quietened them, and secured the dispersal of the parties. It was a most dreadful occurrence. Lloyd, who had since married another woman, denied having promised to marry Rice.
