A heavy compensation claim of the City of London Real Property Company against the Metropolitan and Metropolitan District Railway Companies, in which 90,000 was demanded in respect of property in the line of the new street to be made by the companies, was settled on Monday by consent, after having been for several days before a jury at the Guildhall. The companies take a portion of the land, and pay 63,630.
