PORTHCAWL LADY AS PLAINTIFF. In the King's Bench Division, Mr. Justice Sutton delivered his reserved judgment in' the case of Turbervill v. The Blaina Colliery Company, opened in August at Swansea As- sizes, the hearing being continued in Lon- don last term. Plaintiff, Mrs. Turbervill, a1 widow, of Porthcawl, claimed dam- ages alleged to have been sustained in re- spect of coal worked by the defendants, and which she said belonged to uer. Her claim was that, being in undivided possession of one-fourth share of land known as Cwmferws, Llandebie, the defendants during 1903 and 1904 carried away coal belonging to her. Defendants said they had leased the whole of the land in question. They admitted having carried away 26,689 tons of coal, and paid R150 into court in full satisfaction ■ of any claim the plaintiff might have. In giving judgment, His nononr said de- fendante had put forward that they honestly believed they were entitled to the whole of the minerals, and that they bad a right to work the coals. As far as he could see the defendants had not been guilty of any negli- gence, a.9 the coal could only be worked' through their workings. He was of opinion that the true measure of damages was the value the plaintiff could have obtained from the person only able to work the coal. This could only be ascertained by the royalty that had been paid under the lease, viz., 5d. a ton. This did not mean that the defendants were to get back the £1;')0 paid into court. There would be judgment for defendants, with costs incurred after tho time they had paid the money into court.
