Another impediment, which of itself might
be sufficient to prevent any other and future
and different division or other improvement of the Waste, is
the uncertainty that prevails, (as already stated) with regard to the
proportionable quantities of interest as between the
Dean and Chapter, as Lords on the one hand, as Lords,
and the Inhabitants aforesaid on the other hand
as Commoners on the other. This uncertainty
will be continually increasing, every day which by encroachment the very subject
matter itself, will be cons as continually crumbling away.
by encroachment The benefit reaped by the
Dean and Chapter being nothing, and the benefit
to the Commoners being, in the instance of a vast
majority of them, nothing or next to nothing, neither
party has ever found any adequate inducement
for engaging in that tedious and expensive course of litigation
with without which in the ordinary existing order ordinary mode of proceeding
of things would be necessary for putting an end
to the uncertainty could not be removed: [+] particularly the
Dean and Chapter,
a body composed of
individuals advanced
in life, and whose interest
in the premises
does not survive to
their natural representatives.
and as
the subject matter of the investigation grows less
and less, so would the inducement to engage in
it. The present Bill, which for the first time
it gives a value to these interests, affords establishes
provides a summary mode of procedure for
establishing their relative amount: an assistance, which
(it has been already shewn) it would not be would not with any degree of
consistency for be afforded by the legislature to give afford on
any future occasion if it were to be found on the
present occasion it were to be refused.
