A WHARFINGER DOES NOT GUAR?
ANTEE THE SAFETY OF VES?
SELS COMING TO HIS WHARVES.
BUT HE MUST USE REASONABLE
CARE TO ASCERTAIN THE CON?
DITIONS OF THE BERTHS. AND
IF THERE IS ANY DANGEROUS
OBSTRUCTION, REMOVE IT, OR
GIVE NOTICE OF IT TO VESSELS
ABOUT TO USE THE BERTHS.
This was libel filed by tho owners ol
the schooner Ellen Tcbln for damages
to their vessel while moored at appel?
lant's wharf at Georgetown, the injury
being caused by a rock which had been
allowed to remain in the bed of the
Tlver and within the limits of the
berlh at the wharf where the vessel
landed. The appellants were the lea
sees of the wharf and water rights to
the channel of the river. The vessel
sunk at the wharf and was sold at auc?
tion for $25. The appellants fl.cd a
cross-libel for damages caused by the
appellees allowing their vessel to sink
at their wharf. Tho lower court gave
damages to llbellants and dismissed the
cross-libel, whereupon the lessees of the
The court says:
Although a wharfinger docs not guar?
antee the safety of vessels coming to
hla wharves, he Is bound to exercise
reasonable diligence in ascertaining the
condition of the berths thereat, a.id it
there Is any dangerous obstruction, to
remove it, or give due notice of its ex
istence to vessels about to use the
berths. At the same time the master
is bound to use ordinary care, and can?
not carelessly run into danger.
As to knowledge or notice of the ob?
struction by appellants, the evidence
tended to show that they had be^n for
some years in the use of the wharf and
of thl6 particular berth. ? ? ? It
further appeared that In December,
lSfi2, the two-masted schooner Baird,
carrying five hundred tons, and when
loaded drawing fourteen feet, groundeo
In the same berth, manifestly on a
rock, and that that fact and tho ch.ar
arter of her injuries were Known to ap?
pellants. There was much other evi?
dence bearing on this point of knowl?
edge or notice, which fully sustained
the Court of Appeals In Its conclusion
that appellants know of the existence
of the rock; or. If not, that absence of
Investigation amounted, under the cir?
cumstances, to such negligence as to
Impute notice. At all events wc are
unable to decide that the Court of Ap?
peals was not Justified in holding on
the evidence that appellants were lia?
ble for negligence and the want of reas ?
onable care, and that the master was
free from contributory negligence, and
the decree must, therefore, be afllrmed.
SHIVERICK V. GUNNING CO.
Supreme Court of Nebraska,
February ^3. 1899.
OWNERS OF A PARTY WALL,
BUILT AT JOINT EXPENSE, A RIO
NOT TENANTS IN COMMON, BUT
EACH OWNS IN BE V ER ALT Y THE
PART SITUATED ON HIS OWN
LAND, WITH AN EASEMENT OF
SUPPORT FROM THE OTHER
This was a suit brought by the Gun?
ning Co. against Shlverlck & Co., for
damages for obliterating a sign of the
plaintiff, which had been palnttd on the
wall of a house. Shlverick & Co. were
tenants of a building, one wall of which
was a party wall.. This wall was budt
one-half on the lot which Shlverick &
Co. occupied as tenants and the other
half on the lot adjoining on the east,
which was owned by one Higg'.ns. There
was no building on Illgglns' lot and ho
leased to plaintiff the cast side of the
party wall for the purpose of advertis?
ing, signs, etc, thereon. Plaintiff paint?
ed a large sign thereon of Durham to?
bacco, with a picture of a large bull;
defendant obliterated it and painted
the'Ir own sign upon the wall, and after
the various signs were repainted and
obliterated several times by the re?
spective parties, this suit was brought.
The lower court gave a Judgment to
the plaintiff for $600 and defendant ap?
pealed. The Court says:
The principal question presented for
eur consideration Is raised by the giving
of the first paragraph of the Instruc?
tions, which was to the effect that the
plaintiff had the right, under its lease,
to paint and maintain the sign in ques?
tion upon the east surface of said -wall,
and that the defendant is liable for the
damages sustained by the obliteration
of such sign.
The wall in question was built by
two adjoining lot owners under a writ?
ten contract, so that one-half of the
?wall, divided longitudinally, rested on
'the one's lot and the other half on the
other's lot. Each party to the agree?
ment paid one-half of the cost of con?
structing the wall, and each was the
owner In severalty of the portion there?
of that stood upon his lnnd. subject to
the easement or right In the other to
have It support the building which he
might erect and attach to or connect
with the wall.
In Andrae v. Haseltine, f>8 WIs.. 395.
Lynn, J., in sneaking of party walls!
observed: "It seems to be the settled
law that the owners of a party wall
standing In part upon the lot of each
are not tenants in common of the wall,
but that rnch owns In severalty so
much thereof as stands upon his lot.
subject to the easement of the other
owner for its support, and the equal
use thereof as nn exterior wall of his
building. Such being the tenure by
which the wpII is held and owned, it
seems logically to follow that either
owner may. at least upon his own land,
do anything with the wall, or make any
use ef It. which does not interfere with
or Imnair the enjoyment of such ease?
ment by the other owner."
Anplvlng the principles governing the
foregoing decisions to the case at bar.
it Is very pla'n that the defendant be?
low bsd no right to go upon the lot of
the adtoln,",ar owner nrid obMterate the
sign painted by ptalnt'fT on the eist sur?
face of said party wall. The instruc?

ATLANTIC CITY BARD
The alarm which carried the West

Ward at 10:18 a. m. yesterday, was
caused by flames Issuing from the
kitchen attached to the residence of Mr.

The fire, which was due to a defective
flue, was extinguished with buckets of
water. The damage to the building
was very slight.

(From Raleigh News nnd Observer.)
Hon. John W. Daniel, United States
Senator for Virginia, Is at the Yar
borough. He is here as counsel for
the American and Bell Telephone com?
panies, which have filed exceptions to
the rates fixed by the Corporation Com?
1 called to see the Senator last night
at his rooms. He is one of the party's
ablest leaders, us well as the Souths
first orator, lie has no opposition in
his par.y in Virg.ma und will stay in
the Senate as long us lie desires lo do
so, unless the Democrats make him
Vice-President in louo. if he had con?
sented to the use of his name lie would
have been nominated in lb'Jti. A ticket
of Bryan and Daniel in laOO would
arouse the greatest enthusiasm in every
section of the country. They would
portray with an eloquence of which no
other two men are capable the dangers
of the new an undemocratic policy of
imperialism, the domination of trusts
and the money power's dictation With
such words of burning oratory as would
fire the people from Sandy Hook to the
"It is too soon to talk pill'ics much
now," said tho Senator. ?The tide lias
turned strongly lo the Democratic par?
ty and wo have an excellent prospect
of winning in 1900. We will lose none
of the votes polled for our ticlcct in
l*yG and we will g^in thousands and
tens of thousands of votes from intelli?
gent men who are alarmed at what Is
involved In Imperialism and the rapid
growth of trusts. The attempt to in?
troduce into uur government seventeen
million men in the Philippine Islands by
subjugation is an issue of commanding
importance. It means an Immense per?
manent standing army at great cost
and the lowering of the standard of
American citizens. We cannot incorpo?
rate them into our body politics exe, j.t
as American citizen?. 1 do not be?
lieve the people of this country tire
ready to Join England In an alliance
that involves the burdens, evils and
militarism which are necessary Inci?
dents to a colonial policy. The revolt
against the administration's policy of
"criminal aggression" is gaining ground
every day. i believe that the Demo?
crats will gain many thousand votes
from conservative men who are opposed
to the radical departure from the teach?
ings of the fathers and the best inter?
ests of the Republic.
"The trusts are a menace to trade,
to individual opportunity und the feel?
ing against them Is intense. There will
come to us in 1900 many voters who
see that tho Democratic Is the only par?
ty that will honestly enact and en?
force anti-trust legislation.
"We will, as 1 said before, not lose
a single vote that was cast for the Chi?
cago platform in l?fnl. Wo will take
no backward step, but we will empha?
size the other prominent issues that
have pressed themselves to the front,
and make our appeal to the American
people for tho principles upon which
our government was founded. Tho
outlook is bright, gets better every day,
and If we are wise Bryan will be in?
augurated President In 1901."
Senator Daniel is looking well and
will be ready to do his shnre in the
great battle that will close the century.
