Morgan, assistant draughtsman to the Birrv Local Board. sued Mr. John Williams, Barrv Dock, for A37 15.. being remuneration at the rate of 2^ per cent, for preparing plans and speei- fi nations, and superintending the work, for eight bouses which defendant erected at Barry. Mr. A. Jackson, solicitor. Cadoxton, appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. F. P. Jones-Lloyd, solicitor, Barry Dock. for defendant. Plaintiff, in his evidence, said he had been em- ployed through another architect. In cross- examination he admitted that lie was an assistant draughtsman in Local Board office, and his hours were from nine to five. Mr. Lloyd-Wen. in the ordinary course of your business you oould not have superintended the work. His Honour—Does your Board allow you to do private work ? Well, I have not heard any objection. I am a temporary assistant, and have been there two years. His Honour—You call yourself an architect. You are not an architect. It is a usual thinsr His Honour—No. it is not usual. You may be on the way to be an architect, but you are not one yet. Still, you charge for preparing planB and specifications and superintend the work. (To Mr. Jackson)—Here is a man who holds a position of assistant draughtsman, but says he is a full- blown architect iu large practice. How can you charge as such ? Mr. Jackson—Well, that was the agreement. His Honmlr-Oh, he must be paid something, but not at that rate. Mr. Lloyd—We have already paid him 43 3s. and £ 1 Is. into court, which we hold to be suffi- cient. His Honour gave judgment for £10. which in- cludes the amount already paid to plaintiff and the amount paid into court.
