THE ARGUS, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1900.
Mumford Case Settled. The Fifth
street depot of the Rock Island road
is safe. Attorneys Ely & Bush have
tigned an agreement not to carry it
away to satisfy the judgment against
the road obtained for their client, D.
Ierov Mumford In other words, the
famous Mumford case has been set
tied out of court, after traveling all the
way from the district court of Scott
county to the supreme court of the
United States, where the chief counsel
of the great Rock Island road looked
after its interests. The case is not
great or famous because of the money
involved, for the suit was for only
$10,000 and the judgment for $7,000.
But the road evidently figured that a
deep principle was at stake, for the
case was fought harder than man
damage suits for five times the
amount. D. Leroy Mumford was a
front brakeman on a Rock Island
freight train, and on May 13, 1902,
when the 'train was in the yards at
Des Moines, he was bumped off a box

car and his foot or leg caught on a
spike or projection and turned him
under the wheels of the car. His right
leg was crushed from the foot to the .
knee, and amputation was necessary
twice before it healed. Mumford sued
the company for $10,000. The -road
answered that when obtaining employ
ment he had signed an agreement to
give the railroad company notice with
in 30 days after the Injury occurred,
should he be injured and desire to
make any claim on the company. The
suit was not filed within 30 days, and
the company wanted the suit dismiss
ed on that account. Ely & Bush dug
up a piece of the Iowa statute provid
ing that no contract which restricts a
company's liability for injuries shall
be binding. It stuck through both the
district court arid the supreme court.
A verdict of $7,000 was rendered in
favor of Mumford. Not being able to
obtain payment of the judgment, Ely
& Bush levied on the depot at Fifth
and Main streets. But on a plea that
a constitutional point was involved, the
case was carried into the supreme
court of the United States and the ex
ecution stayed. In the supreme court
the case has been since early last
spring, and there seemed no indication
of anything being done for some time.
However, the agreement to settle has
been signed and the money will be
paid over in a day or two.
