The case appears from the opinion ot
the court. ,
Tho court Bays, after stating the
It is Insisted that, upon Hits state ol
facts, the possession <>f the appellees
and those Under whom they claim has
never been adver:.- to the title of the
appellant. This contention in based up?
on two grounds. First, that Hicks, af?
ter the sale of the laud in the proceed?
ings in bankruptcy, was a mere tenant
by suffrjrhnce, holding In subordination
to iho title of the appellant; and. sec?
ond, that when he denied the title of
th ? nppi Hunt and claimed ownership in
hiin.-a.il", lie was a mere Squatter with?
out a scintilla ol title.
it ta true that where tho grantor or
land remains in possession of it utter
conveyance, he holds In subordination
t.? the title of tho grantee: and in the
earlier decisions this court InclliK 1 very
strongly to the view thai where one
was in \< ?l,,<\ of land In subordi?
nation to nnothcr'n title, h" could not
assert an adverse title without llrst suf-'
rendering the possession "f the prem?
ises. This quctstlon was carefully con?
sidered In the case of Creekmur v.
Creekmur, 7.'. Va. 4:'."). In that ease
Judge Staples, who delivered tho opin?
ion of the court, lifter commenting up?
on the earlier cases, says that "not*,
withstanding the doubl expressed In
those .. sos. it la now settled, by a
great weight of authority, that al?
though n party may enter Into the po3
session in privily with the true owner,]
he may. with .nt llrst surrendering It.l
dissever Much relation nnd claim by ad?
verse title. ? * * The only distinc?
tion between this class of cases and
tlio.te in which no privity existed, Is
In the degree of proof required to es-,
fnbiish the adverse character of the
possession. The rule now is thn.t where
tin* possession Is originally iakcil or
held under the true owner, a Clear,
positive and continued disclaimer and'
disavowal of title und the assertion of
an adverse right, i>> be brought home
In iho knowledge of the party, are In
dispi nsablc before any foundation can
be laid for the operation of the statute
of limitation.-. The statute does not
begirt to operate until the podse<ss<loh,
before in privity with the title of the
true n toner, becomes tortlous and
wrongful by tho disloyal nets of the oc?
cupying ten.mi. which must tie open,
continued and notorious, so as to pre?
clude every doubl as lo the character
if the holding or the fact of knowledge
on Lhe purl of th.vner."
The record In this cnae shows that
the possession of the appellees and
tiiose under whom they claim was in?
consistent with ;!*.?? title of the appel?
lant, thrit i: was accompanied by n
claim of 1111c exclusive of the rights

tho town Imposed a tax of Sl.oo a year

brought. There was a judgment for
plaintiff and defendants appealed.
The court says:
The plaintiff alleged in his petition
that the ordinance was unconstitution?
al nud we presume the trial courl tool;
iliat view of it. The contention of ap
pellee Is that, as the Legislature and
courts of tliis State have recognised
dogs as property, the said ordinance is
in derogation ot* the constitution pro?
vision requiring taxes to be equal and
uniform, and therefore void. The tax
levied by the ordinance Is not an ad
valorem tax. but Is the exercise of the
police power with which the town is
Invested. These powers lo levy an ad
valorem it-.tx. and to prescribe certain
regulations for the public good, though
co-existent, arc distinct. The exercise
of tho tatter is not restricted by the
former. The great wi Ight of authority
Is that' a license t.tx upon dogs is the
exercise of police power, and is not in
conilict with the provision of the con?
stitution in regard to tuxes being equal
and uniform, which provision Is con?
tained In a majority, if not all, of the
Stati" constitutions. After a careful
consideration of the question we have
reached the conclusion that the ordi?
nance is not unconstitutional, but valid,
its enactment being within the proper
? xerctse of the police power with which
the town of Hells was Invested. The
ordinance being valid, und the writ be
!ng issued by the proper authority, and
tegular on its face, it nfforded protec?
tion to appellant, and he is nc't liable
for fa'..-.- imprisonment.
We will now consider the other
branch of the case.? that of malicious
prosecution. It is conceded that if
Kidd acted maliciously, and without
probable cause, in making the com?
plaint which was the basis ,>i the war?
rant of artest, he Would be liable to the
plaintiff for the consequences of his act.
and tiie regularity of the warrant
would not shield him. Hut ihe sure?
ties on his ofltcial bond would not be
liable, for they nrc only responsible for
n rongs perpet rated by him In the ex?
ercise of his official capacity, ami the
making of the complaint was not the
exercise of an olllCinl function. Tie
? our:, therefore, erred in instructing
the jury, if the prosecution was malic?
ious, to. tind -against ??.ill the defend?
