We give a brief report, on page 381, of a case which was opened at the Congleton County Court on Tuesday of last week. It was brought by the Buglawton U.D.C., against the Silver Springs Bleaching and Dyeing Co., Ltd., and it concerns a road in respect of which this user has made contributions for maintenance over a long term of years. The defendant corn. pally is now advancing the view that its steam-wagon traffic has, by the effluxion of time, ceased to be extraordinary traffic on the particular road in question, and has become ordinary traffic. The contention is an interesting one, and is undoubtedly one that can be substantiated in large numbers of cases. We hope that the evidence, which has yet to be completed, will show that the " user " under notice is one which has emerged from the classification to Whieh it was originally held to belong, and in which it has been allowed to remain by consent up to the present time.
