We know of a commercial-vehicle representative, with a long connection with this side of the industry in relation to several important makes, and a specialized knowledge of the Irish trade, who requires a position on the selling side. Letters addressed " Representative," care of the Editor, will be ft; rwarded B-licence " Transfer" Refused.

Mr. G. H. Heningha.m (for Mr. Hopwood) explained that such figures as Mr. Barker had kept were before the court, but it was not fair to say that no business existed, because the month of August was a slack one for farmers, and for hauliers who dealt with carrots, potatoes, sugar-beet and grain for milling.
