    " DELORAINE CIRCUIT COURT OF REQUESTS. THURSDAY, MAY 5. Before his Honour Jno. Whitefoord, Esq. £50 JURISDICTION.
    WYATT V. HEWITT. Claim for £18 12s 6d, balance due for upwards of 17 tons of hay sold and delivered by plain tiff to defendant, who, after payment of £35 on account, resisted further payment on the ground of the hay having been badly got up by plain tiff and mixed with a quantity of rubbish, making it practically useless to him. Mr G. T. Collins appeared for the plaintiff, and it was agreed between the parties that the case should be heard before the Commissioner only, without a jury. The evidence of the plaintiff was to the effect that about the 7th January defendant came to his farm, looked at his crops, and agreed to take the hay at £3 a ton, plaintiff to make it, cut, cart, and stack it in defendant's yard; witness cut the crop of defendant's hay, and carried out the agreement, delivering 17 tons 2qrs 6lbs; Mc'Mahon, who was employed by witness, ascer tained the quantity. He had received from de fendant a horse valued at £15, and £20 in cash. defendant made no complaint about the quality of the hay while the stack was being built in his yard ; it was not in witness's agreement to thatch the stack, but he put a little on to oblige defendant ; the hay did not contain a large quantity of rubbish; the stack was made rather larger than the de fendant wished. Terence Hewitt deposed that he measured the stack in March last ; Mr Hewitt refused to take it over ; it was a fair sample of hay and got up green. For the defence the defendant deposed that he agreed with plaintiff's father for from 25 to 30 tons of prime hay, and plaintiff came and asked if witness would take the hay from him instead of his father ; he went to see defendant's hay, and objected to docks, briars, and dande lion, and told plaintiff he would have nothing to do with it if that was in it ; plaintiff built the stack badly, and agreed to thatch it but did not ; the wet had gone through to the bottom and had spoilt the stack on one side ; witness was not present during the building of the stack ; he produced samples of the hay; he was using it and had used about a ton. George Burgess deposed that the first portion of the hay was in very bad state, but it was a good deal better now; the stack was not put up in a workman like manner and wet had gone through to the bottom of the stack; he valued it at from 30s to 35s a ton; he had sold good hay this year at £2 a ton. George McCleary deposed that the hay was in very bad order, and he would not give above 30s a ton for it ; there was a portion of wet hay in the middle, and there was rubbish in the stack ; he had examined it that morning. His Honour considered some abatement of the claim was due for the bad quality of the hay, and delivered a verdict for plaintiff for £14 2s 6d."10
