COMMON PLEAS COURT.
Mrs. Oxner Gets Verdict For $510
Juries Dismissed Wednes
In the comrnnon pleas court, Judge
Ernest Gary pres'ding. the juries
were dismissed on Wednesday morn
ing. Three cases had been set for
trial on Wednesday, but owing to the
illness of Mr. Fred. H. Dominick,
who was of counsel in each I
of the eases, the cases were
continued. All the cases on the ros
ter prepared by the bar hav.in been
disposed of, there was iio furt.er
need for the juries.
Equity matters, and matters not re
quiring a jury, were then taken up.
The case of Mrs. Annie P. Oxner
against the Western Union Telegraph
company resulted in a verdict of five
hundred and ten dollars for the plain
tiff. Mrs. Oxner's suit was for $1,
999. She alleged that on the 30th of
March, the day after the fire in New
berry, she filed with the Western Un
ion af Whitmire a message directed
to her father, Mr. Geo. W. Pearson,
at Newberry, asking, "Are you
safe." She alleged that her two
childrena were in Newberry in Mr.
Pearson's home, and that all her
household goods.were in her father's
home. She further alleged that the
telegram had never been delivered to
her father. Judge Gary, after hear
ing the testimony of the plaintiff
w.ithdrew the question of mental
anguish from the jury, on the ground
that the telegraph comipany had .not
been put on notice, either by the tele
gram or othe*rwise, that Mrs. Oxner
was' worried about her ehildren, the
operator at Whitmire not having
been inform d, and there being noth
ing och the face of the telegram to
sho.w, that Mr. Pearson was Mrs.
Oxner's father, or that Mrs.' Oxner
had children in New1berry a bout
whom she was worried. Judge Gary
submitted to the jury the question as
to whether or not the plaintiff had
sustained actual damages by. the
'failure to deliver the telegram, plain
ttiff having paid twentylve cents to
the company, -and 'whether or not if
there was negligence on- the part of
the company in failing to deliver it,
the negligence was so gross as to
warraint punishing the defendant.
Miss Sue Dean, operatoqr at New
berry, testified 'that she received the
message at a'bout 4.10 p. mn., and de
*livered it to Carl Epting, extra mes
sengeir boy. Carl Epting testified he
mrade every effort to find Mr. Pear
son, 'but failed. Miss Dean said she
reported to Whitmnire at 8.15 p. in.,
'that the message was undelivered,
and asked for further address, and
that she had never heard anything
more from Whitinire. After a clear
charge from Judge Gary, the jury
'retired and returned a verdict for
$510 for .wantonness. Mrs. Oxner
was represented by' Messrs Bleasa &
Dominick, and the IWestern Union
was represented by Messrs. Hunt,
Hunt & Hunter.
