The 'Municipal Council of Nowra a fortnight ago determined to suspend the arbitrary and one-sided bye-law, which made a trap for, ratepayers' or anybody else's cattle or horses at ono part of the municipality, viz., Groenhills. We have always contended that the principle of the operation of the bye-law as regarded straying cattle, as applied, locally —that is to a particular part of the munici pality, — was glaringly unjust, if not in con tradiction of the preamble of the code of bye laws of which it forms part.
