IMPORTANT COLLIERY ARBITRATION CASE. In our Journal of the 22nd of October we gave an outline of the evidence given at Tenby, in the important cases of Child v. Pocock, and Pocock v. Chi'd, which were referred to Mr. YVhitmore, of the Oxford Circuit, as sole arbitrator, under an order of reference made on consent by the Court of Exchequer. Two distinct actions formed the subject of the enquiry first an action brought by Mr. Child, as lessor, against Mr. Pocock, as his lessee of the collieries, to re- cover damages for alleged breaches of covenant; and secondly, an action brought by Mr. Pocock against Mr. Child his landlord, for the value of his plant in the collie- ries. The lease which gave rise to this litigation embraced all the coal in the Begelly estate, in which the lesse worked two collieries—that to the south, and the dip being known as the Bailey Park Colliery that to the north and rise of ij the measures as the Spadeland Colliery. Our former notice of the case terminated with the close of the evidence in the country, where the matter had excited much interest, and the adjournment of all further proceedings before the arbi- trator to London. Since that period, three meetings have taken place in this city, and the evidence having been very fully discussed, the arbitrator, who had an opportunity of viewing the col ieries on the spot, has now made his award He has given 10 Mr Child the sum of ^320 damages under the colliery lease and to Mr. Pocock, the sum of X1200 for his plant. Mr. Child failed altogether in his claim for damages at Bailey Park, and also in his claim for damages to his mansion but the sum of f320 awarded to him on the ground 01 breach of covenant, is to be deducted from the larger sum payable by him to r.ir, Pocock. Mr. Whitmore who appears to have conduc ed the investigation with strict impartiality, further directed that each party should abide his own costs.—Mining Journal. [
