Mr. Justice Walton held, that the conditions were unreasonable, and entered judgment for the plaintiff for an agreed sum of £ 300. Counsel submitted that the case raised a question of great ^mportanoe. and that the hearing of the appeal ought therefore to be i expedited. Lord Justice Moulton was unable to see any reason why the case should be taken out of its turn. Even the hearing of the West Riding Education appeal, the decision in which affected every County Council and Educator.. Authority in the country, was not expedited. Mr. Crawford obscorved that it was in the House of Lords. Lord Justice Moulton = Yes, because it then affected the legislation. Lofrd Jtystioe Cozesns Hardy This ease doers not seem to me of such importance that "it ought to take precedence over some 150 odd cases. Mr. Crawford said that, if Mr. Justice Walton's judgment stood, the conditions of railway companies throughout the kingdom would have to be revised, and the matter was not only of im.port&rice to the railway compaaies themselves, but to the public whose goods were sent by tra.in. Lord Justice Moulton remarked that after all it was only a question of money, which could easily be returned. If the case re- lated to goods which were perishable, or a sihip which might be delayed, different con- sfflderations might arise. Mr. Orawiord It is even more thaji that, becauw the decision will be followed by County Court judges and King's Bench judges. Oomtsel a-aded that in his opinion it was a case of sufScaeni importance to justify their lordships in taking it out of its turn. Lord Justice Cozwis Hardy said that Mr. Crawford had advanced everything be could in support of the application, but he had not convinced him (his lordship) that bo would be discharging a public duty in ex- pediting the appeal. The applieataon was accordingly refused.,
