FARMER v. AGENT. On August 13th a settler named Joseph Burrell brought 132 ewes to the Gore saleyards, intending to sell them through the Farmers’ Co-opera-tive Association. He was met by Mr Begg, auctioneer for the N.M. and A. Co,, who offered to buy them for Jno. Waddell, a client. Begg offered 18s a head, but eventually gave £1 0s Gd, the Gd representing commission to the Association who were to have sold the sheep. At a later stage Burrell considered that he had sold too cheaply, and instructed the Association to sell the sheep on his behalf. This was done, and they brought £1 7s each, Waddell protested against the sale, and sued Burrell for £42 18s, the difference between £1 0s Gd and £1 7s. In the course of the hearing Burrell said that he did not consider the sheep had been sold to Begg, seeing that they were in the hands of the Association. After hearing- evidence) His Worship (Mr Cruickshank) said that if he he believed Beg-g h« must give judgment for Waddell, and there was no question that Burrell had told at least two persons that he had sold his sheep. Judgment for Waddell for £42 18s as claimed* with) costs £l7 11s 9d.
