In this edition there has not been much occasion for material change. I have ventured to dispute the correctness of a recent decision of the Court of Appeal, Temperton v. Russell, ’93, 1 Q. B. 715, in so far as it holds that the allegation of malice will make it actionable for either one or more persons to persuade any one, by means not unlawful in themselves, to do or abstain from doing that which it is in his lawful discretion to do or not to do. Another important case, Taylor v. Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire Railway Company, ’95, 1 Q. B. 134, was reported while the last sheets were under revision, and therefore could receive only brief notice. It is hardly too much to say that Alton v. Midland Railway Company, 19 C. B. N. S. 213; 34 L. J. C. P. 292, is no longer authority since the observations made on it by the Lords Justices. Some other late cases of interest are noticed in the Addenda.
The Employers’ Liability Act most unfortunately remains unamended. It would not be proper to repeat in a practical law-book the opinion which I recorded in a separate note to the report of the Royal Commission on Labour.
The series of “Revised Reports” now in progress is cited as R. R.
The current series of Law Reports is cited thus: Andrew v. Crossley, ’92, 1 Ch. 492, C.A.
Otherwise the same forms of citation are used as in my book on “Principles of Contract,” 6th ed., 1894.
My cousin, Mr. Dighton N. Pollock, of Lincoln’s Inn, has again given me valuable help in the revision of the Index.
