[WHEN A RAILROAD COMPANY DI?
VERTED A WATER COURSE BY
DIGGING A DITCH, IT IS LIABLE
FOlt INJURIES TO LAND CAUSED
BY .THE OVERFLOW OF A CON?
NECTING DITCH.
Til 10 STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS IN
SUCH CASE BEGINS T<> RUN
FROM THE DATE OF THE IN?
JURY. NOT FROM THE TIME ?>F
THE DIGGING OF THE DITCH.
This was an action brought to re?
cover damages arising from the flood
Ins of land, caused by the dlvcrsi in <>f
water through one of the defendant's
di.cites.
The plaintiffs alleged that the defen?
dant. In order i>> drain its rpudbed and
right <>r way, hud cul dcen ditches be?
side Its road, whereby it diverted large
volumes of water from its natural
coUrsc and How," and enrolled it Into n
small branch or Hat bottom known as
"Rattan Trestle" or "Jumping Run
Branch;" that it has provide', no suiii
cleht outlet for such accumulated and
diverted waters, thereby causing the
same to pond or back up and overflow
the plaintiff's Innd, whereby th<y and
their Intestate have been greatly dam?
aged within the three years next pre?
ceding the notion.
There was a judgement for plaintiff
and defendant appealed. The court ?
says:
it Is unnecessary to separately con-j
?idi r each exception, as they naturally
group themselves around two <>r three
essential principles. The charge itself
appears to he unexceptionable. > It is
full- clour and accurate, in which the
principles of law laid down are cor?
rectly applied io the facts Involved
Name of the statutes of limitations ap?
pear to bar the action. It Is contended
by the defendant that the sole dam?
age was done by the freshet of isor>.
Which happened only n few months be?
fore the- bringing of the nctlon. It
makes no difference when the ,ditches
were dug, provided they did not injure
the plaintiff. The defendant had ? P'-r
fecl riebt to dig its ditches or use its |
bind as Ii sa w (it without Injury to an- j
other. Tb" digging of the ditches, or i
the building of the road, or tiny other'
net doiie 5 or 20 or f?'? years before, was
utterly immaterial to the present c<m
trovi. y, ns In themselves they consti?
tuted no cause of action. While the
plaintiff might, under certain circum?
stances, have enjoined thr> commission
of an act thai threatened Irreparable
injury, he could not have maintained
an action for damages that he had not
sustained, ami might never sustain. It
I:; wed settled thai the injury is lb'
cause of notion, and that no statutes cd'
limitation cnu begin to run before the
cause of action accrues.
The injury complained of is the flood?
ing of the plaintiffs land caused by the
unlawful acl "l" the-defendant in divert?
ing water from its natural course, and
concentrating it at a polhl where there|
>vus no sufficient natural or arlilicia] |
nutlet, it is now well settled that
neither a corporation nor an Individual
chii diver! water from Its natural;
c nirse so as to damage another. They
may iiieiv i.-o ami neoeloi a tT~ TTTTt not
divert. There WO? eertaii ly sufficient
evidence of diversion to go to the jury,
and this of Itself disposes of several
of the exceptions. Had the natural
water shed remained intact when the
dam at Devil's ditch broke its water
would have resumed Its nl<| channel in
branch No, ?_', and would not have
icaclud the plaintiffs land, going far
to the northeast. But Us outlet into
branch N'o. ?_> was closed, and it natu?
rally found Its way into the railroad
ditch which bad been cut through the
water shed, it was thus diverted from j
Sis natural outlet to the east, and car?
ried back south to the brail of Jumping;
run. The same- diversion was shown as '
to the water of branch No. 6. which j
naturally flowed south Into Jumping
run at Its head at Rattan trestle. The:
effect of this diversion and noncen- i
tratl?n was to accumulate a large
amount of water at the bend of Jump?
ing run. which it was unable t" carry
off, and which therefore flowed back
upon Hocutt's land. It is true thnt
Jumping run is a natural water course'
and drain way, as contended by the de
fendant, but it is stich only as to those
waters that naturally flow Into it- Th
defendant contends that ii should r.ot
bo held responsible for Porter's ditches.
This might be true were it not for the
fact that its own ditch received tho
water from Porter's ditches, and dis?
charged it upon the plaintiff, thus be?
coming the proximate c ause "f~the in?
jury. Affirmed.

WHERE A WOMAN DID NOT
NOT ALIGHT FROM A STREET
CAR UNTIL IT HAD STOPPED,
AND THE CAR WAS NEGLIGENT?
LY SKT IN MOTION WHILE SHE
WAS HOLDING ON WITH BOTH
HANDS AND HAD ONE FOOT ON
THE GROUND, AND BEFORE SHE
COULD LI FT HER OTHER FOOT.
TIIIO COMPANY WAS LIABLE Fi d:
THE INJURY CAUSED HER.
Thi3 was a suit brought by Sarah B.
Brown for personaKinjuries sustained
?y her while alighting from a car of
the defendant company. She was a
passenger on one of the street cars of
fee company and when the conductor
?tiled out Laxrabee street she got up
and went out on the platform. When
it stopped she got off. holding on to the
rar with both hands and putting one
foot on the ground, before she had
time to lift her other foot from the step
of the car It jerked, throwing her to
the ground and Injuring her. The low?
er court gave her a Judgment for $r>,000
damages and the company appealed.
The court says:
It is insisted that there is no evidence
in the record lending to prove that the
plaintiff was In the exercise of ordinary
care at the time of the accident. But
upon a examination of the record It
will bo found that there is evidence
j tending to prove ordinary care on the
I part of the plaintiff. If the car stop?
ped as tin- witness said It did. she had
a right to presume that it would not
start up until she had sulllcient time
to get off. and, acting on this presump?
tion, she was Justified in stepping Off
as she did.

INSURANCE MEN.
MEETING AT OED POINT GETS
DOWN TO WORK.
About two hundred of the leading in?
surance men of the Southeastern States
are now assembled at Old Point Com
fort, and others are expected. The oc?
casion of the gathering is theeighlcenth
annual convention of the Southeastern
Tariff Association, which opened on
Wednesday, at the Chamberlin Hotel.
The session of Wednesday was of a
preliminary nature, but that of yester?
day was Indicative of the important
matters that are to come up. At 10
o'elock yesterday morning the conven?
tion got down to work, and from now
on their proceedings will be fit much
importance.
The tariff to be adopted for the com?
ing year is probably the most Import?
ant matter to be considered and adopt?
ed. It is believed that there will be
considerable difference of opinion be?
fore a generally satisfactory tariff
schedule is adopted. Tile opinion is ex?
pressed that the convention will not
make any material changes in ttic
present tariff.
Even if the tariff is changed, the re?
sult will not particularly affect Vir?
ginia payers of insurance premiums, as
the tariffs of the association are not
supposed to rule In Virginl on act ount
of the Wharton anti-Insurance compact
law. passed nearly a year ago, that pro?
hibits combinations of insurance com?
panies from fixing ra:es of insurance.
Yesterday the convention was photo?
graphed as it was in session by Mr. C.
E. Cheyne, of Hampton. The mem?
bers and their wives and children are
greatly enjoying their stay at Old Point
Comfort, and are taking in all the
near-by points of interest.
Among the prominent insurance men
in attendance are Mr. W. J. Perry, of
Staunton, Va. He was first lieutenant
of the West Augusta Guilds in the war
with Spain, ami since tin- close >f the
war he has been chosen captain of the
company in its re-organization. Other
