The case set np for the pr,vs,;c;ition was to the effect that the defendant, being the lessor or the coal under certain lands in Hindley, had, without any arrangement or contract with the prosecutor, deliberately worked through his coal, a strip about 100 yards in width, in order to pass from a coalfield he (the defendant) had leased on one side thereof to an extensive coalfield on the other. The road was therefore of great value to Mr. Gidlow, as without it he would have to work It considerable distance round the strip of land to win a valuable take from the owners of the land on the other side. It was admitted that in September list defendant had entered into negotiations for a 1"ase, these had been protractcd, and had not yet fallen through, the question in dispute being whe- ther Mr. Hargreaves was entitled to rent for way- 1cwe. or out-strobe, that is to say, payment for the right of conveying coal from other propertie i 1-rough his land.—After a hearing which occupied i,!h' whole of the day, the magistrates deliberate'! an hour, and then stated that they had come to the ooQcluaroa that the case was not one to send to a ;UJ'1.
