VOTES OP ZEOAT. EVENTS.
Btrlcken at ho was In tho notlve exercise of
the dutlea of his profession, the death of Au
Kustus II. Garland In the Supreme Court of
the United States 'on Thursday was like that
of a vnllant soldier with bis harness on his
back. The Bouthwost, In roccnt times, has
produced no lawyer of equal prominence, un
less It bo tho late Albert Pike, also of Arkan
sas. Neither, however, was a natlvo of tho
State with which his namo Is Indlssolubly as
sociated, riko wns born In Boston In 1801)
and did not go to Arkansas till 183a. In which
yoar Garland was born In Tennessee, bclnir
taken by his parents to Arkansas In tho fol
lowing roar. Doth were on tho Confederate
Mile In tho civil wv j l'lke aa a military oflber.
Qarlaud as a mombcr of tlio Confcdora'o
llouso of Representatives and Senate. They
were alluo In their opposition to traditional ob
servances In tho mnttor of costume. It is Bald
that the Supiomo Court of thu United Statoo
once rcrused to hear Albert l'lko when ho ap
peared before that tribunal without a crnvnt,
and It is well known that Mr. Oarlnnd'snutln
nthy to tho assumption ot n dress coat kept
him away from many social functions ntiWnsh
ington when he held tho office of Attorney
I Oenornl. Mr Oarlniiil was titiquetionnbly n
constitutional lawyer of exceptional abllllv.
In tlio case of Williams against Hays, do
elded by tho Court of Appals on tho 10th of
January, the doctrine that a Captain of a es
sol Is chargeable with negltnoneo for her loss
In censoqueneo of mental dotangoment duo to
xhnustlon Induced by his efforts to save her
is emphatically rejected. The court, speak
ing through Judgo Ilalght. says: "Wo cannot
elvo our assent to such a vie w of the law. To
our minds it Is carrying the law of negligence
to a point which Is unreasonable and prior to
this caso unheard of. and Is establishing a doc
trlno abhorront to all principles of coulty and
justice. In this case, the storm commenced
on Friday, continued through Baturday and
Sunday, and it was not until 5 o'elook Monday
morning that the dofondant was relloved from
tho ciiro of his vessol. For tliroo days nnd
nights he had been upon duty almost contin
uously, nnd for the last, forty-eight hours hud
noi been bolow deck. The man Is not yet
born In whom thero Is not a limit to his phys
ical and mental endurance and whon the limit
lias beon passod. he must yield to laws over
which man has no control. What careful and
prudnt man could do moro than to care for
his vessel until overcome bv physical and mon
tal oxhaustlon? To do moro was Impossible."
The judgment holding tho Caotaln liable for
tho loss of his vessel has therefore been re
versed and a now trial has been granted by a
vote of all the members of the Court of Ap
peals except Judge Edward T. Ilartlett. dis
senting, who hold that under a previous deci
sion ot the Court of Appeals In tho same case,
tho Captain could not bo exonerated from lia
bility whatever the causo ot his motital do-raniioment.
It has recently beon docldod in the Appel
late Court of Indiana, although not unani
mously, that a person Is chargeablo with con
tributory negligence who Is Injured while try
ing to pass a known obstruction In tho street
in tlio dark without obsening any other pre
caution than feeling with his feet and search
ing with his eyes as he proceeds. This seems
to us a err doubtful proposition of law. If
tho surrounding circumstances wero such
that n prudent man who was aware of them
woultr'go on, we do not boo why ho should be
deemed negligent. Is oery ono who knows
ot an obstruction In tho highway bound to
carry a lantern with him if ho endsavors to
rass along the road In the night time or else
be ehareod with contributory negligence in
case he happons to be hurt? We should sayno.
Tho Indiana decisions, however, go very far
In attributing contributory negligenco to any
ono who exposes himself to any risk of Injury
In tho dark.
The Constitution of tho State of Neir York,
as amended in 1804. contains the following
provision relating to tho dralnago of agricul
tural lands: "General laws may be passed per
mitting the owners or occupants of agricul
tural lands to construct and maintain for tho
drainage thereof, necessary drains, ditches and
dikes upon the lands of others undr proper
restrictions and with just compensation, but
no special laws shall bo passed for such pur
poses." In pursuanco of this authority, sev
eral statutes havo been enacted b7 the Legis
lature, under which extensive drainage oper
ations have been conducted in Orange coun
ty. These statutes assume to chargo a por
tion of the expense of constructing the drains
upon the owner of tho land over whloh they
aro built against his will, and the legislation
which has this effoct has been pronounced
unconstitutional by a decision of the Appel
late Division of tho Supremo Court in Brook
lyn, handed down on Tuesday last. The
opinion la written by Mr. Justlc Hatch of Buf
falo, who holds that while the provision of our
State Constitution in regard to tho drainago
of agricultural lands does not conflict with the
Constitution of tho United States, neither does
it authorize the Legislature to enact such
laws on the subject as thosu nought to be en
forced In Orange county.
Tho Harvard University cataloguo for 18f)8
00 shows that thero are 531 students In the
law school this yoar. Of these 58 are special
students, not in any one of the three regular
classes, and 480 aro graduates of collegos, rop
rosontlng 70 Institutions; I205 are graduatos of
Harvard, Tho other colleges represented by
two figures aro: Yale, 50; Princeton. 'M; Am
herst. 10; Brown. 15; Bowdoln. 12; Dart
mouth. 11. and Boston, 10. There appears to
be only one Columbia graduate In the Har
vard law sohool. Tho school was established
in 1817 and Is said to bo tho earliest school In
tho country connected with a university and
authorized toconferdogrees In law. Admission
to the regular clauses Is open only to college
graduatos and students who show themselves
to bo qualified to enter the senior class at Ilar
vatd College, Tho conditions for the admis
sion of special students to the law school aro
also quite strict. Sineo 1877 threo full years
of residence havo been required for graduation.
Under the law of this State, as embodied In
tho Penal Code and tho Codoof Civil Procedure,
a person romalns a competent witness not
withstanding tho fact that he has beon con
victed of a crlmw, but his conviction may be
proved for the purpose of affecting tho wolclit
of his testimony. In a prosecution of a New
York policeman for ntsault and battery, tho
District Attorney was allowed to provo that tho
defendant had beon tried beforo tho Police
Commissioners several tlmos and fined for
violations of the- pollco regulations. The trial
Judgo then tcld the jury that they might take
into account the defendant's record in tills re
st eet In passing upon his credibility, Tho
Appellnto Division of tho Supremo Court In
this department has recently declarod that the
ndmlsslon of tho evldeneo and tho rbferonco
to It In tlio charge were both orroneous. Mr.
Justlco O'llrlon. speaking for that tribunal,
assorts that the conoluslons of the I'ollco Com
missioners can In no scuso properly bs re
garded aB legal conUctlons. Tho convictions
to whloh the codes rfor nrn determinations
which formerly had the effect of wholly dis
qualifying tho eonvioted persons from testi
fying; nnd a decision by the Tollco Commis
sioners resulting In the Imposition of n flno
does not fairly fall within the category.
rOn the trial In London beforo Sir. Justlco
Gorell Barnes of the collision casn between
the British ship Cromartyshire and the French
steamer La Dourgogno, ono of tho principal
queatlons was the sufficiency of tho fog horn
on the Cromartyshire This Instrument ap

Juatlca Barnes says: "We have seen It and
heard it, and the evidence from La Bourcosno

aflerwnrd towed tho Cromartyshire Into Hnli

He DlBroTercd Isome Years Ago Thnt Kcely

Philadelphia, Jan. 28. Charles II. Cramp,
tho head of the great shipbuilding company,
ays that, from knowlodge which he obtained
ot the Kcely motor and Its performances,
the motivo power was nothing more nor less
than compressed air, conducted through tubes
which wero so 6lender that they looked like
wire. Some years ago Mr. CrampVas a mem
bor of a committee that represented a num
bor ot capitalists In an Investigation of th
motor. Tho committee tooK an entirely new
tack with Koely at its visit and did not om
bnrrass him with questions.
"His condition during our visit was re
markable," says Mr. Cramp. "He was evi
dently expecting tho usual cornering process,
nnd when it did not come he grew nervous.
Great beads of porsplratlon stood out on his
head, face and hands, and he was visibly ex
cited. I watched the machins narrowly and
was Impressed with tho number of alleged
wlree of varying thickness that lod to tho ma
chine. I nicked up a piece of alleged wire and
was strujk by its lightness. Then I. made up
my mind that ho wns merely using some well
known forco liko oompressed air through
"Tu'rnlng'cnsually to Keoly. I asked, with no
trace of especial interest. 'Wheie do you get
those hollow rods from? I don't know where
to get them.' He nnswered promptly. I get
