ARMIDALE, Tuesday.

At the Armidale Court-house to-day Mr F. W. Garstang, mining warden, delivered his deferred decision in the case which was heard at Hillgrove during the latter past of last week in which the Sunlight G.M. Company sued Edward McNamara claiming £800 for unwatering the latter’s mine. The finding of the warden was of great length, but practically ordered the defendant to pay, as his proportion of contribution to the complainant company £191 11s 8d together with costs Mr Simpson representing the defendant asked for a stay of proceedings for three weeks which was granted. He also applied for payments by instalments in, say, six months’ time. Mr Claverie for the Sunlight Company opposed, and after much argument application was refused.
