SWANSEA APPEAL CASE. HODGENS v. M'KEVITT. In the King"? Bench Division of the High Court of Justice. London, on Friday, the case of M'Kevitt v. Hodgens came before the Lord Chief Justice and Justices Darling and Channell, sitting as a divisional court, on appeal from a decision of Judge Williams at Swansea County Court on the 19th March, 1902. which, was asked, might be set aside, or, in the alternative, a new trial granted, on the ground that upon the evidence the defendant was entitled to judgment in law. The claim for the plaintiff was for the maintenance of her child, in regard to which she said defendant had come to an arrange- ment to pay her £9 15s. per quarter. De- fendant denied that he had made any such arrangement, and if there bad been defen- dant said he was released therefrom by reason of the plaintiff's verbal and written repudiations thereof, and the plaintiff was not entitled to recover anything in respect thereof. Mr. Abel Thomas. K.C.. and Mr. Richards appeared in support of the appeal, and Mr. Vaughan Williams for the plaintiff. Mr. Abel Thomas said that the defendant, Mr. Hodgens, was a man of some money living at Swansea, and the plaintiff was a widow keeping a boarding-house a1 Ilfra- combe. He proceeded to relate the circum- stances of the case, which have already been dislosed, and remarked that Mr. Hodgens had already paid the plaintiff something like JB400. whilst a paternity order for 5s. a week had been made against him in respect of the child. The learned counsel was continuing his opening statement when the court ad- journed. The hearing was resumed on Tuesday. Mr. Abel Thomas, K.C., renewed his argu- ment on Tuesday in favour and support, of the appeal, alleging that the County Court Judge was wrong in respect to the alleged agreement as to a specific sum for the main- tenance of the child, because the evidence was clear that there never was any agree- ment. On the contrary, the plaintiff had refused to enter into any agreement, and as to the claim for board and lodging, he submitted that nothing was owing on this claim. Mr. Vaughan Williams having been heard ÏI1 support of the judgment of the County Court Judge, The Lord Chief Justice said the Court did not see its way to interfere with the finding of the County Court Judge in regard to the maintenance of the child. The judg- ment, so far as the £ 42 5s. was concerned wouldi. therefore be affirmed. With to the claim for £ 9 inasmuch as the reJa 10*V of the parties were what they were and larg sums of money were paid by the d'v to the plaintiff, it was not consistent witn the state of things that his bed an fast were supplied on the terms that they were to be pa1 a? i^r-it be—j sSfSf*- ™ 1 °Vhe *othei°Iudge= eoncrnTed, and an appli- to appeal, was refused.
