Violating the Market Ordinances.
--A diminished number of cases of this character were disposed of yesterday by Recorder Caskie
, with his usual promptness and good judgment.
If all such violators were treated in a similar manner, it would not be long before these offences would be put a stop to.
, whose trial was postponed from Wednesday, underwent an examination yesterday morning on the charge of buying a load of melons to sell again.
The evidence proved that Sweeney
's wife made the purchase, which fact he seemed to think sufficient to ensure his dismissal.
, however, thought otherwise, and fined him $20.
A similar fine was imposed upon John Minnis
, for buying a load of potatoes in the First Market
, which he intended to cell again.
The potatoes were also confiscated for the benent of the city treasury.
