WARDEN'S COURT, WAIPORI. (Before Major Croker, R.M. )
Tuesday, April 7. Kelly and party complained that Rollings and party had attempted to jump their waterrace. Mr. Campbell for complainants, and Mr. Keen for defendants. It appeared from the evidence produced, that the race, from its original construction, was never out of the possession of Kelly and party; but, moreover was constantly at work. It appeared also from the evidence, that Rollings, being an original shareholder, sold out his interest to his mates some nine months ago, and moreover was receiving water for that period without paying anything for it. Mr. Keen summed up for defendants. Mr. Campbell replied, and stated there were j I no words in the English language sufficiently I strong to characterise the conduct of the i defendant, in endeavoring to take from his former mates the race he knew well to belong to them, after receiving nine months' water for nothing. The case was adjourned for fourteen days, I to enable Kelly and party time to complete their registration.
