Eighth District Court—Judge Dibble on
.Metropolitan Warrants—His Opinion
of Juries in Clril Cases-The Verdict
of the Jury Set Aside—The Contested
Recordership of the Fourth District
New Trial in the Chattanoogn Railroad
Bond Controversy Refused.
In the case of Esnard vs. the city, m
which same $86,000 in Metropolitan Felice
warrants are involved, the jury last week
returned a verdict to the elieet "that the
plaintiffs are bona fide holders of the war
rants in question, that the warrants are
genuine and to he recognized as lawiul
obligations, and should be paid." The ver
iliet was taken under advisement by Judge
Dibble, who, yesterday, delivered the lol
lowing opinion on the same:
The plaintiffs, who are holders of a large
amount of Metropolitan Police warrants,
brought this action to compel the city of
New Orleans to make provision for their
payment. As a means to that end a wiit of
injunction was prayed for, and the eonrt
was asked to restrain the Council of New
Orleans from passing any ordinance or
resolution until they shall have provided
means for the payment of these warrants.
The petitioners'nrged that the relief should
be granted, by rem-on of the provisions ot
section five of act No. 64, special session of
1870. This statute made it the duty of the
councils of the municipalities, and the police
juries of the parishes within the Metropoli
tan Police District to provide means for the
payment of the proportion of the expenses
due from each municipality and parish for
the Metropolitan Police. The fifth section
aforesaid declares that all ordinances and
resolutions passed by said councils and po
lice juries shall be null and void until such
provision shall have been made
In the cast ot Lafon vs. Administrator
Waltoh, I examined the history of those
warrants issued by the Board of Commis
sioners of Metropolitan Police. The action
was brought to compel the city officers to
receive certain of such warrants for taxes
due the city. 1 had occasion to construe
section twenty-seven of the act No. 74 of
1868, under wtich the issue was made, and
the acts No. 44 of 1869 and No. 41 of 1870,
requiring the city to receive the warrants
for taxes. I fonud from that examination
that the city of New Oi'e ns was obliged to
receive the warrants tendered in payment
for taxes, and judgment was rendered
The dispute in that case, as in this, was
in relation to the obligation of the city to
receive the warrants issued during the first
fiscal yearof the Metropolitan Police, end
ing September 30, 1869. I found from the
several statutes aforesaid—and so ex
pressed in the decision—that the city Vas
obliged to retire such warrants by receiv
ing them for taxes, to the amount of the
quota of the expenses of the police for that
year due from the city.
lu the answer of the city of New Orleans
to the present suit, several defenses are set
up. The plaiutitt's ownership of the war
rants is denied, the genuineness of the in
strument disputed, and it is alleged that
flio city is not obliged to pay them or pro
vide for their payment. It was especially
urged, and particularly insisted upon dur
ing the trial, that the city has already paid
the amount of the assessments lor the
years 1868 and 1869.
A jury trial was prayed for. and a trial
by jury was liad. Two days were oceu
pied in'taking the testimony. In charging
the jury, at the request of counsel for the
plaintiffs, the decision given in the Lafon
case was read as the opinion of the court as
to the law of the case.
The jury, after some delay, and after re
turning for instructions as to the form of a
general or a special verdict, found the fol
lowing: "We, the jury, find the facts in
the case—first, that the plaintiffs in the
case are bona fide holders of the warrants
that were produced in court; second, from
evidence of witnesses and the stub book we
have come to the conclusion that they are
genuine, and to he recognized as lawful ob
ligations, and should be paid."
This verdict, though appearing to l>e gen
eral, is and was brought in as a special ver
dict upon the facts. It is, therefore, left to
the court to give judgment upon these facts
and the law applicable to them. C. P., arti
cle 519. The ease wai thereupon taken
tinder advisement. C. P., 542.
When the verdict is special cn the facte
of the cause, those facts which the jury have
found are consider! d as true, and the" judge
must render the judgim n accordingly. C.
P., 521. In making lip his judgment the
judge, I take it, has nothing to do but apply
the law. He has no power to review the
finding of the jury, or to determine other
facts which they may have neglected to
find. Therefore, if the facts found are not
sufficient to authorize a judgment for the
plaintiff, there must be judgment for de
fendant. This judgment against the plain
tiff maf be a non-suit. 7 M., 569.'
After considering the pleadings and the
several statutes which must be construed,
I am satisfied that the jury have failed to
find the fact which is material to a judg
ment for the plaintiffs. Has the city of New
Orleans actually paid the amount assessed
against it to sustain the Metropolitan Police
during the year which ended September 30,
1869, the jury have not determined. I have
no power to do so.
Under the jurisdiction of our State the
trial by jury in a civil case is a nondescript
affair.* I'lie system of jury trials is from
the common law, but except in our criminal
jurisprudence we have only preserved the
name and certain forms. At the common
law it is said that no man shall be deprived
of his life or property except bv a judgment
of his peers; the petit jury was made t«
symbolize the country.
The idea that the officers of the law could
not pronounce judgment upon the issues of
fact essential to a final judgment found ex
pression in the seventh amendment of the
constitution of the United States: "And no
fact, tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re
examined in any court of the United States
than according to the rules of the common
law." The verdict of the jury finally deter
mines the facts. In Louisiana it is not so.
We say to the jury in a general way: "Gen
tlemen, you are the judges of the law and
the facts," while in truth they are left to
determine neither. The superior court re
views the facts and the law, and frequently
sets aside the verdict of the jury because
both the law and the facts have lieen mis
apprehended or perverted.
I mention this only to show that although
the judgment now to be entered will he one
of non-suit, the ultimate decisiou of the
cause luay be a fiual determination of the
It is therefore ordered, adjudged and de
creed that there be judgment against plain
tiffs as in case ot nonsuit; that the case be
dismissed, and that the plaintiffs pay costs.
Judge Dibble has refused a motion for a
new trial in the case of C. H. Slocoinb et al
vs. Graham, Auditor, et al. The reasons
assigned are the (Same as (hose expressed in

Weber, a person interested as party plain
tiff with the State, against A. E. Billings, as
intruder and usurper of the office
of Recorder of the Fourth District,

The petition alleges that relator has given
due information of said A. E. Billings' ille
gal intrusion, and that lie required the At
torney General to bring suit iu accordance
with act No. 199 of the acts of 1868, better
known as the "Intrusion act," that the At
torney General refused to bring said suit,
although it is made his express duty in such
cases to sue in the name of the State when
requested to do so. Hence the application
for a mandamus to compel him to do so.
