sita vs. Fierce, Jfl To vas,rii, having exonerated
all cities and towns from liability In suits fur
damages for Injuries rcmltl g from their
lalluro to keep tho bridges, streets, culverts
arnl sidewalks In repair, within their eorporalo
limits, this suit was brought In the United
Stales court, which, ni tho plalntlir was not n
citizen of Texas could bo done.
Tho petition was drawn with skill, ability
and Ingenuity, and set up that tho city or San
Antonio waa clothed with various and Im
portant municipal rights, prh lieges and fran
chlses, which created corresponding duties.
and Imposed corresponding obligations on tho
Tbcrols noStato statuto cither fixing 11 II11
blllty on towns and elttea fonlamagc In suits
of thlsklndonellelng them from such Ha'
blllty. Tho statute bouk Is merely tabula raza
oil this subject, and tho decision In Iho city ot
Navasota vs. Fcarce, It) Texas, was not
bottomed uou State law, nor does It pretend
to be a construction or uny Stnto law In forco.
Tho city Hied n demurrer to the petition or
tho plalntlfT, which was exhaustively argued
.nst week, and tho decision reserved by.ludgo
Turner so that ho might have an opportunity
to consult some aulhorlllea In tho State
library at Austin. JudgoTurncr rend bis de
cision on last Monday, In which ho unqualMcd
ly coudonined and disapproved ot tho decision
In tho City of Navasota vs. I'oarcc, 4i Texas,
Mfl, but, nevertheless, sustained tho demurrer
to tho petition, upon tho ground that It was a
well settled rule with Federal courts to adopt
tho construction or S'ate statutes placed on
thcui by the State courts, ID Whoaton, IJ'i, 4
Wash. CI r. It. .110.
This rulo was llrst adopted from a feeling ot
comity towards tho State courts, but Is not en
joined by tho Federal constitution and stat
utes; and moreover, has been rcicatedly
broken through by tho Supremo court of tho
It I recollect aright, It was broken through
disregarded In tho onco colobratod caso ot
"I)rcd Scott," and by Judges or the strict con
struction school. It has been rccatcdly
broken through by tho Sunrt-nio court of the
United States In setting aside tho orders ot
probate courts, approving of tho receiptor
oxecutors, administrators, trustees and guard
ians. As tho rule Is merely ono of tho comity,
It Is certainly not obligatory, wherever tho de
cision of the Stato court Is an unsound exposi
tion or tho law, upon Ita very face. Thosamo
rule obtains In such a case, as Is observed,
when a Judgment obtained In another Stato
shows on Its faco that tho defendant had no
legal notlco or tho pendency or tho suit Insti
tuted against him, treating It as a nullity.
The rulo ot comity usually observed by tho
United States courts waa not applicable
to the decision ln tho city or Navasota vs.
Fcarce, 40 Texas, 03), because it is not based
upon any statutory enactment ot Texas, but
professod tn bo bottomed upon tho princlplea
of tbo common law. This slnglo circumstance
absolves tho Federal courts from tho observ
ance or their customary rule of comity
towards State courts, and authorizes them to
take Jurisdiction, as or question, which Is res
Integra-untouched and unaffected by any
statute law or Texas.
Uut tho decision or Judgo Moore, In City or
Navasota vs. Fierce 4U Texas, 526, will not en
duro tho critical test ot a rigid examination by
tho settled principles of law. It Is but a tlssuo
ot sophistry and special pleading lotcndod
to reach a "loregono conclusion." aud Is In
open conflict with the current ot tho decisions
lioth In Kngland and In the United States. Its
direct effect Is to rellovo cities and towns ot
the chler Inducement to keep streets, bridges,
sidewalks, etc., In repair, tnelr liability to suit
tor damages sustained by cltlzons.
Tho docislon Is utterly unsound as an expo
sition or legal principles and is palpably con
trary to publlo policy.

liability ot municipal corporations at common

In tho City or Navasota vs. Fearco, 14 Texas,
thoenso waa not "now In principle, but only In

to tho application or aprlnclplo recognized tn

was that municipal corporations aro liable In

prhuto aud publlo, wero llablo to bo sued In

why they should lat exempt from a suit by an
action 011 tho case for damages resulting from
their nunrcasanco or mlsrcasance. It la ab
surd to say that because a Plato ran not bo
sued they aro only the creatures of tho land,
and do not purtako or tho sorrrlguty of tho
stale, which prevents the latter rrom being
sued, and they wero suesblo at common law.
Indeed, Huron Farko laid down tbo correct
rulo at common law. "It Is clear and un
doubted law. Hint whenever an Indictment will
ho ror non-rcpalr, an action on the caso will llo

Adoland Ull 11,311. Hut It Is contended that
municipal corporations, although punlshablo
by Indictment ror non-repair, aro not llablo lu
damages lo Individuals ror Injuries received.
This was not tho rule at common law. And It
they aro llablo In trespass and trover, at tho
suit or private parties, there Is no reason why
tUcy should uot bo llablo to an action on tho
caso for damages. Ir railroads, turnpike com
panics, brldgo companies, gas companies, etc.,
aro liable to suits ror damages, why should
municipal corporations bo exempted t "ir law

municipal corporations cannot be oicepted

President Arthur Disapproves of the Sen.
teuce and Secretary Lincoln C'cn
sures tho Court.
President Arthur has strongly disapproved
of the verdict la the Kress couttmartial case,
and in endorsing them Secretary Lincoln
"The ruling made that the accused was not
acting under orders is not creditable neither
to the court that made it nor to the officer
who permitted such a defence to be presented.
If it was likely to be generally adopted It
would be necessajy to abandon the use of
courteous methods of conveying Instructions
to subordinate officers, and to use in their
stead peremptory commands. It was Cot
expected when the court was ordered In thl
case that the accused would be found charge
able with any criminal intent in the sense of a
purpose to defraud the Government for the
pecuniary profit to himself or others, but It
was expected that that with which he was
clearly chargeable should meet with adequate
condemnation. Itii, therefore, not encourag
ing to find that a courtmartlal, composed of
officers of the army, of experience, does not
think proper even to censure an officer who,
though without criminal Intent, has con
ducted an important busisess matter Intrusted
to him in a manner which would not be tol
erated by a private employer."
Major John A. Kress has been relieved of
hit command at the Arseaal and ordered to
report at Indianapolis for duly. Major Ar
nold, It is stated, will be his successor.
