The following cases of interest are pub
lished in their regular bulletin by the
West Publishing company, of St. Paid:
Mental anguish as ground for damages for
failure to deliver a telegram has been re
cently considered by the supreme court
of Indiana in the case of Western Union
Telegraph Co. vs. Ferguson, 60 Northeast
ern, 674. This court had heretofore sub
scribed to the so-called "Texas Doctrine,"
holding that compensatory damages could
be recovered by the addressee for mental
suffering caused by failure to promptly
deliver a message relating to urgent fam
ily matters. In an opinion by Baker, J.,
the case of Reese v. Telegraph Co., 123
iud. 2;i4, 24 Northeastern, 163, in which
this doctrine was first exploited in In
diana, is expressly overruled, and recov
ery on ground of mental anguish alone is
denied. This question is fully considered
in notes which will be found in 11 C. C.
A. 671, 15 C. C. A. 250, and 28 C. C. A. 62.
—It has been held in the case of Terri
tory v. Ketchum, 65 Pacific, 169, recently
decided by the supreme court of New Mex
ico, that the lavv prescribing death as the
penalty for assault upon a railroad train,
with intent to commit murder, robbery, or
other felony, does not prescribe a cruel
and unusual punishment within the mean
ing of the Eighth Amendment to the
United States Constitution. The cout
said: "The provision of the constitution
was never designed to control the legis
lative right to determine upon the ade
quacy of the punishment, but is merely
applicable to the modes of punishment."
venue was asked for in the «ase of State v.
Grinstead, 64 Pacific, 49, on account of the
prejudice of the judge against the defend
ant because the latter was himself pre
judiced in feeling towards the judge, and.
had violently opposed him in a political
campaign, and had published libelous
newspaper articles calculated to arouse
in the judge feelings of resentment and
prejudice. The attack was renewed after
the election, in which the judge was suc
cessful, and was one of the factors in a
subsequent contest in the state senate. It
was determined, however, by a divided
court, that the motion was properly denied
where the judge filed in court a statement
disavowing all feelings of prejudice
against the defendant.
ROAD TICKET—In the case of Tiedy v.
Erie R. Co., 49 Atlantic Reporter, 427, the
plaintiff, who was riding from Newark to
New York, was arrested for refusing to
i pay cash for his passage after the con-
ductor had refused to accept his ticket
marked "New York to Newark." The I
court holds that he is entitled to prove the
custom of the company to honor such tick
ets, and that he might reasonably and
honestly believe that the ticket so written
was a lawful payment of his fare and
t.iat, having this belief, he did not incur
the penalty or subject himself to the ar
rest sanctioned by the statute.
preme court of the United States has
ruled, in the case of Simon v. Craft 21 '<
Supreme Court Reporter, 82fi. that a per- '
son Is not deprived of his liberty without l
due process of law by being adjudged a !
lunatic in his absence, where Hie sheriff
has served a notice to have the person
present, if consistent with his health and
safety, and a certificate of a practicing
Physician is produced by the sheriff at the
trial showing that in the opinion of the
Physician it would not be safe to produce
the alleged lunatic.
REASONABLE DOUBT—Being asked for
! fur*her "^"ation as to the tern "rea
sonable doubt," the court, in the case of
Lenert v. State, 63 Southwestern Reporter,
564, delivered itself as follows: "I under
stand that you desire an additional charge
upon the meaning o f the words 'reason
able doubt.' Upon receiving an affirma
tive answer from the jury, the court told
them verbally that the two words were
words m common use, and the jury could
understand them as easily as the court
and that the court had a reasonable doubt
as to whether he could charge them as
to their meaning.
GUTION—The court of errors and appeals
of New Jersey has recently decided that
the old common-law rule that the criminal
prosecution must have been terminated
before a civil action can be brought for
damages does not obtain in that state In
this case, which la entitled McLain v
Edgar, 48 Atlantic, 600, the court holds
that the necessity for this rule does not
exist with us as it did formerly in Eng
land, where it was the duty of every one
against whose property a crime had been
committed to prosecute the guilty one to
conviction, but that in this country an
action can be brought at any time after
a complaint in a criminal case has been
a conductor in charge of a railroad train
who discovers a person stealing a ride
thereon, to require such person to come
into the train and pay his fare, has been
upheld by the supreme court of Georgia in
Griffin v. State, 38 Southeastern, page 844
The court holds, furthermore that al
though satisfied that the person would not
pay his fare, the conductor could, without
stopping the train, compel him to come
into the same for the purpose of investi
gating the matter; and in the event of the
trespasser refusing to comply, and display
ing a deadly weapon with the manifest
intention of resisting the train officials
the employes had a right to arm them
selves as might be necessary for their
own protection, and to enable them to
force the trespasser to come into the train
It may ba mentioned incidentally that in
Georgia a conductor of a train is a police
officer of the state, and has authority to
retain a trespasser in custody and deliver
him to the state authorities.
Where charges were made against the
president of a affecting his per
sonal character and his competency, and
the president, in a speech in his defense
in an investigation held by the college
board of trustees (which was the proper
tribunal for such investigation), used de
famatory language respecting one of the
witnesses against him, but kept within the
bounds of pertinency and relevancy to the
issue, such speech, although afterwards
published with the other proceedings of
the investigation, has been held by the
supreme court of North Carolina, in the
case of Gattis v. Kilgo, 38 Southeastern,

Special to The Journal.
Lincolu, Neb., Dec. 20.—The marital
woes of a beautiful English woman, whose
bearing unmistakably showed education
and refinement, were listened to eagerly
to-day as she told them to Judge Cornish
in the district court of this city to sub
stantiate her right 10 v divorce.
The fair applicant was .Mrs. Eleanor
Woodville, from London, who has lived
in luxury with her tirtle 4-year-old daugh
ter and French maid at a hotel in this
city for a year past in order to establish
a residence preliminary to bringing suit.
Richard Woodville, the husband and de
fendant, was not present. He is an artist
of i'an:e, she said, living in London.
Sight years ago they were married in
Paris. He soon began to abuse her and
she also found that he was faithless to
his vows. Then they removed to London,
finally separating. When she left Lon
don for America, choosing to bring her
suit where there would be no scandal on
its account, the husband was living with
Miss Blanche Overton at 107 Queens Gate,
Kensington, London, introducing her as
his wife. She sent her French maid to
Woodville's quarters and the maid found
the Overton woman there, to which she
testified to the court to-day.
Mrs. Woodville has relatives of wealth
in London and Paris, and they have aided
her financially in the prosecution of her
suit. She appeared in court richly
gowned and wearing jewels of rare cost.
She declared herself able to support her
self and child through the medium of
newspaper or magazine writing, in which
capacity she has already been engaged,
expecting to follow It for some time in
Ameri ?a.
The court gave her the custody of her
child and granted an absolute decree of
divorce, Mrs. Woodville paying the costs.
With Their Playmate)* They Will
Have a Merry Trip ou the
Wainliip Dolphin.
JVeic York Sun Special Service
Washington, Dec. 20.— Roosevelt
children have decided to enter upon a
series of entertainments of their own.
Masters Kermit and Archibald, who are
the ruling spirits in the household, have
obtained the consent of their father to
invite their playmates and school chums
for a Christmas cruise on the Dolphin.
The day after Christmas the Dolphin will
get up steam and voyage down the Po
tomac. Ethel. Archibald, Kermit and
Quentin and little Master Sheffield Cowles
will form the hosts and hostess of the
; party. The latter is a veritable salt
| through inheritance from his father,
Commander Cowles, and the Roosevelt
children have been seamen ever since
their father became assistant secretary
of the navy and stirred things up. A sec
tion of the marine band will be detailed
; to furnish music.
The voyage will not be of great length,
but next to the expectations of Santa
Claus' visit nothing so engrosses the im- j
aginations of the youngsters as the pranks
anticipated when, this war vessel puts to
sea, albeit that the trip will not extend to
real salt water. Mrs. Roosevelt, Miss Ca
rew and the parents of some of the child
ren guests will be permitted to accompany
the excursionists, and the liveliest time I
that a jack tar ever experienced is in j
store for the blue jackets who will form
the officers and crew of the Dolphin on
this occasion.
IMayTul, but Grisly Frank of the
'•Mcd Pac" at Harvard.
Cambridge, Mass., Dec. 20.—Early this
morning the residents of Cambridge "were
surprised to see a skeleton hanging from
the top of the flagpole on Cambridge
common. No one knows how it got there,
but the incident is laid to a secret so
ciety which is suposed to exist at Harvard
under the name of the "Mcd Fac." The
skeleton was so securely fastened that it
was impossible to take It down.
Some Interesting; Reminiscences Re
called by an Oetogrenaria.ii.
j Edward P. Day, in Brooklyn Eagle.
In the year 1848 I was engaged in the
publication of an educational journal in
the city of Rochester, known as the
Monthly Educator. I occupied .the small
room on the second story of a house on
the principal street, the balance having a
bill "To let" in the windows. It was for
a long time unoccupied. At length two
colored individuals called and looked over
the place with, the janitor.
"What luck?" said I after their depart
"Good," said he. "They have taken it
and will start a new paper, entitled North
"Sure?" said I.
"Oh, yes," he answered. "Got a month's
advance and good references from Gait
Smith, of Peterboro, Arthur Tappen, of
New York, and Hiram Pitts, of Honeoye."
Next week boxes of type and a hand
press arrived. Matters began to look busi
ness-like. An advertisement appeared In
the Rochester Democrat - Advertiser,
"Compositors wanted." Yet days passed
and none were secured. Several persons
called whom I very well knew, as they
were members of the printers' union, to
which I belonged*
"Hello Tom," I said, "seeking a sit?"
"Naw, not here. Work for a nigger?
Guess not."
After several days had passed Fred
Douglas said to me: "Mr. Day, I have
had promises from several; can you ieU
me why they don't come?"
I tried to explain. "Ah, I see. Preju
dice even in business. Mere dollars and
cents. Prejudice, prejudice. Colorphobia."
A short time afterward there was a
printers' strike. Prices paid were 20
cents per 1,000 ems; the union struck for
25. But the dailies refused, borrowed col
umns of matter from each other to sup
ply the deficiency caused by comps who
left their cases. The members called a
meeting at the courthouse for Sunday to
consider the outlook.
"Douglass," eaid I, "you might do well
to attend," as I explained matters.
He did attend. But a difficulty appeared
to loom up before the printers. Th%
courthouse had been let for religious
services and the keeper said a printers'
strike was not a religious meeting. Two
or three of us were talking with Douglas
when he replied: "Hear me a moment/
and he arose end spoke somewhat as fol
lows: "1 am told that this place is lei
for religious services only. Now, I deslr*}
to preach a sermon. You will find my
text in Matthew xii.. 11-12: 'The laborer
is worthy of his hire.' In the place from
which I have run away from the people
refuse to pay the laborers anything. In
Rochester they are given better pay—
about four-fifths of their hire. I believe
in paying their full hire. I intend to pub
lish, a paper here and pay the full price,
which Is 25 cents per 1,000 ems. I want j
laborers,'but there ar© two kinds of men j
I do not want; first, those who are not i
worth and cannot earn 25 cents; secondly,
those who are worth and can earn 25
cents and yet have not the manhood to
rise up and demand it from their em
The result was the members remained,
the printers debated, and, curiously
enough, each one quoted the passage, "The*
laborer is worthy of his hire." The fol

lowing day Fred got his men, the paper
started and within a few days the new
prices prevailed.
While publishing the Educator I be
caxne somewhat intimate with Douglass.
He told me of his visit to England. With
a little of negro vanity he mentioned his
acquaintance with the Duchess of Suther
land, jshowed me a ring she gave him
stated that at a ball he had the honor
of leading her in a dance. Also his visit
to hear Daniel O'Connor, who invited him
to a seat on the platform.
On the 7th of February, Franklin's
birthday, the printers had a banquet, but
when P'red presented himself the door
fieeper hesitated about admitting him and
referred the matter to the members in
sitde. A vote was taken and he was ad
mitted by a bare majority, however.
Toasts were in order and Fred was called
and gave one as follows: "The printers
of Rochester. It is their mission to dif
fuse light and knowledge through the
world by a judicious Intermingling of
black with white."
While situated as above I met scores of
persons who called on him to whom he
gave an introduction — Gerit Smith,
Charles Sumner, Wendell Phillips, John
IU Giddtngs, the Rev. Samuel May, Wm.
Goodell, etc. One day he introduced me
to Mr. Brown. It was a very common
name, and I thought but little of it at the
time. A few days afterward, however, I
read the account in the daily papers of the
raid at Harper's Ferry. Douglas appeared
much agitated. "Ah, Mr. Day," said he,
"this is a sad affair. You remember Mr.
Brown to whom I introduced you?"
"What!" said I; "was that the John
Brown?" "Yes, the very man. But he
acted contrary t>o my advice. He thought
the colored people would flock to his!
standard, but he didn't know them as I
do. The consequences are on his own
head. Ah, poor Larry," he continued, re
ferring to a colored lad, roller boy in
the North Star office,, "there is real honor,
dead, dead. Oh, It l£ a sad business."

She Should Digest the Mew* of a
Well-Editeil/ Paper.
" Woman's Home Companion.
It is absolutely indispensable that the mod
ern girl, in whatever position she finds her
self, whether that of one of the world's
workers or that of the girl of leisure, should j
give every day a portion of her time to read
ing. In this way only can she keep abreast
of the times, sharing its best thoughts, un
derstanding its important movements and
learning her own attitude toward the world ,
and the duty which she owes to it. She i
must read her daily paper carefully, 6eU - ;
ing with discretion and conscience the cue j
which she will lead regularly. She wants to I
choose one whose editorial opinions are rec- I
ognized and quoted, whose attitude is fair i
and which treats large questions with toler
ance and honesty.
If she lives at a distance from the large
centers where these papers are published,
she may subscribe for a weekly or semi
weekly edition of such a paper, in which she :
will find all the best features of the daily I
editions, it being, in fact, a sort of an
abridged edition of the dailies In point of
news, with the reviews, the ! best editorials, I
the criticisms of art, music, the drama and
all the choicest correspondence from abroad
and centers at home. This paper well read,
with a good standard magazine, and a review
which will be both entertaining and instruc
tive, with a few well-chosen books, may con
stitute her intellectual bill of fare, and will
prove as much as she can digest without be- I
coming a mental dyspeptic.

The sugar planters of Southwest Louisi

question was considered. The planter*

purchase one of the smaller gushers au-1

oil mills .to the sugar plantations that
would supply all the fuel the latter might
need for manufacturing sugar.
