As anticipated the verdict In tho
case of Jones against the Delaware
nnd Hudson company has been set
aside. Yesterday the following deci
sion nnd nccompanylng opinion were
received by Prothonotary Pryor from
Judge McClure, of the Unlon-Snyder-Mllllln
district, who specially presided
at the trial ot the case;
This case grew out of the same acci
dent und the testimony upon which tho
verdict was rendered was of like character
and to the same effect ns that In Hughes
against this defendant No. 7U3, September
term, 1891. On appeal Hie Supreme court
has snld In that case that the contributory
negligence of the deceased was so un
questionable that the court should have
pronounced upon It as a matter of law
and directed judgment to be entered for
the defendant on the point reserved. It
follows that a like judgment must be hore
'And now to wit Jan. !i, 1SS7, Judgment
Is entered for the defendant on the point
reserved noti obstante veredicto."
H. M. McClure, P. J., Seventeenth dis
trict, specially presiding.
In the summer of ISO,", the plaintiff
David G. Jones and Wllllnm J. Hughes
were run down by n Delaware and
Hudson passenger train at the Carbon
street crossing. Hughes was killed
and Jones badly Injured. A verdict of
$U,490,fiO was returned in favor of Mrs.
Hughes but on the appeal to the su
preme court the verdict was set aside
on the ground of contributory negli
gence. On Feb 3 last, a. verdict of
$11,750 was awarded in the Jones case
upon the condition set forth In the fol
lowing: Whether upon the whole evidence David
G. Jones wus guilty of contributory negli
gence, and the plaintiff Is not upon that
ground entitled to recover, with leave to
the court If It shall be determined that
upon this ground the Jury were not Justl
llcd In llndlug In favor of the plaintiff to
enter Judgment in fu'vur of the defendant,
The decision of the supreme court
In tho Hughes case left no other course
open to Judge McClure In the Jones
ense than that which he pursued.
Judge Edwards handed down an
opinion yesterday declaring Irregular
and Illegal the proceedings o the city
of Scranton against William Conroy
and directing a verdict for the defend
ant. The case came before him In the
shape of an appeal from the judg
ment of Alderman John Ruddy, of the
Twentieth ward. Conroy was fined $5
for driving on the sidewalk In front
of Mrs. Fan-ell's property. It was
shown liy the defense that there was
no sidewalk at the pluce Indicated and
that Irregularities existed in the meth
od of procedure before tho alderman.
In another opinion Judge Edwards
refused a new trial for Edith Walker
who sued tho city of Scranton for $25,
000 damages for Injuries alleged to
have been received by falling over nn
obstruction on the sidewalk at the
northeast corner of Lackawanna ave
nuo and Ninth street on Christmas eve,
A new trial was granted by Judge
Edwards in the case of Edwards &
Uarthold against Martha Prltchard.
This will mnke the third time that the
case has been tried the defendant win
