HICKS CASE WON.
Was In Court for Five Years TrIed On th
Circuit Twice and Argued in Snpreme
Court Twice-Defendant. Reireseited
by Johnstone & Welch, Receive.q
S2,350 from Southern Ry.
Co.-A Noted Case.
On the 18,b of this month the case <
Hicks vs. the Southern Railway Con
pany, which has been in the circuit an
supreme courts for something over fiv
years,was finally decided bylthe suprem
court, and on Wednesday, Messr
Cothran & Cothran, for the defendant
handed over to Hicks' attorneys
Messrs. Johnstone & Weleh, $2,832.35
amount of verdict given by the circui
court and all costs in the case.
The case is a most noteworthy one
in that it is one of the very few case
in which the supreme court hns eve
granted a petition for a reargumen1
and the only one in which it ever re
versed itself upon a reargument. Fo:
lowing is a brief history of tne case:
Coleman Hicks was a brakeman i
the employ of the Southern Railwa
Company in 1895, and at the time of hi
injury was doing duty as a brakemai
upon a freight train heading into Bates
burg. The freight train, on account c
its length, and there being a number c
cars already on the siding, was unabli
entirel5 to clear the main line. I
pulled in as far as it could and left
few cars standing on the main line, o
in other words the freight train wa
"swinging." Mr. Blanton, who was i
charge of the train as conductor, see
ing the situation, ordered Hicks t
take a flag and go as far in the direc
tion of Columbia as possible and flag a
incoming extra passenger train. Hick
got a flag and ran as fast as he coul
and as the train hove in sight flagge
it, delivered his message to the tngin
cer as he slowed down in passing bin
and ran on toward the rear of the trai
to board. The passenger train, afte
Hicks bad gotten on the bottom ste
with one foot, A ith his entire weigh
on that foot, made a jerk, and in hi
exhausted condition from the long run
his foot slipped off the step and strue
the rail and was immediately paste
over by the wheels of the car Tb
pasenger train went on into Batesbur
and left him in this condition. He wa
afterwards picked up by an incomin
freight train a half hour afier%varod
and brought into Batesburg. He wa
then carried to Columbia the sam
night and the next day the front par
of his foot was amputated by D)r. D. 'v
Some time during the fall of the yes
of 1897 suit was begun for $5.000 A
the March term of the court of 1898 fu
New berry, a verdict of 82,30) was re
covered, Judge Gage presiding. Motio
was made by the defendant for a ne
trial, the motion being based upon th
ground that Coleman Hicks was a fe
low-servant with the other's.ervants o
the passenger train that caused hi
injury. Judge Gage reserved his dE
cision at the time, and in about
month filed his opinion, wherein b
held that Hicks was a fellow servat
with the injuring servants and, therE
fore, barred from recovering in thi
action. At the March term of thbe cout
of 1899, Juuge 0. W. Buchanan presid
ing, the case was again tried and
verdict for $2,350 was recovered. Art
other motion was made by the defer
dant for a new trial, based upon th
same grounds as that made befor
Judge Gage. This motion was ove1
ruled An appeal was thereafter take
to the supreme court by the def'endar
and was argued in the November tern
of the supreme court, 1900, and at tb
following April term of the court i
1901 the supreme court filed its deci:
ion reversing the judgment of the lowe
court upon one ground.
A petition was thereafter filed in tb
supreme court on the part of Hicks b
his attorneys, asking the court for
reargument on the point upon whic
the case was lost. The petition we
granted and the case was set down fc
reargument at thie November tern
1901. At that term the cas3 was agai
argued, and in February, 1902, the cou:
handed dowq~ an opinion wherein
reversed its former holding, and a
firmed the judgment of the circu
court. Thereafter a petition was filE
on the part of the railroad compar
aking for another reargument of tU
case. This petition was held by tU
court without ac tiou un til the 18th
April, 1902, when it was dismissed. C
the 23(d of A pril, the defendant, th rous

$2,832 35 in settlement of the judgmer
and all costs in the case. This eni
