in Federal Court Other
The jury in Ihe ease of M. A. Gould,
of Moline. county surveyor, against
the Tri-City Ilailway cotnpany. this
morning returned a verdict awarding
the plaintiff damages of .1.1oo for
alleged )ersonal injuries received in
being ejected from a car at Tenth
street, in Moline. This was the sec
ond trial of the case. At the former
hearing the verdict was for $1. ..().
The railway company asked and was
allowed a new trial. Gould sought to
Gould claimed that after he had
paid his fare he became engaged in a
wordy altercation ith the conductor,
and that the latter, without .justifiable
provocation, pushed him off the car.
In a lit!"hl ing he stated that lie fell on
the pavement and was injured to such
an extent that he probably will never
fully recover from the effects of the
slunk. The defense was that Gould
had been drinking: and used language
that was offensive to the other pas
sengers on flic car. and that he was
ejected only after he had disobeyed
repeated import unit ies from the con
ductor to desist in liis unbecoming
conduct. It is likely the case will be
carried to the appellate court.
