EDITORIAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 12 March 1870
EDITORIAL NOTES. A POINT of great importance to farmers and millers has beon decided by tho judicial committee of tho Privy Council in England, on an appeal from tho Supreme Court of Adelaide, in tho case of Randell against tho South Australian Insuranco Company. The appeal was argued on tho 14th December last. The decision (being for tho plaintiff) is to tho effect that millers aro liable for wheat stored with them in cases of fire, though no insurance is effected.
