Tub care of Turner vs. the Corpora
tion of WabhingtonOn Monday we gave
the verdict of the jury In this case," awarding
5>5,t5?> damages to the plaintiff, Henry Turner.
It was testified cn the part of the plaintiff in
this i a-e that north E street, between 17th and
l-'tb, had been opened and graded some ten or
fifteen years ago that the water since that time
toad washed a dangerous gully across the
street, including the part where the pavement
should have been. The street, however, was
not paved. 1 he break in the street had been
tnere lor some years pas', and in the month of
t 'ctober, 1~<;3, the plaintiff fell into this break in
me street , severely fracturing his ankle, and
va? otherwise injured.
,1'idge oiih charged the jury as follows:?
This action, gentlemen of the jury, is brought
ly the plain tiff,Turner,against the corporation
of Washington to recover for an injury alleged
to have been sustained by him by falling into
an opening in a public street of this city?said
opening existing, as it is said, with the knowl
edge ot the corporation.
It is brought upon the theory that by law ex
clusive control of the streets is given to the
corporation, and that the duty is imposed upon
it of keeping them in a safe and passable con
dition, power being granted the city to raise by
taxation whatever means may be requisite for
this purpose.
1 will not repeat to you the testimony, for
you no doubt r*member jt, and it is your prov
ince to decide upon the facts 1 will simply
instruct von as to what 1 consider to be the
law applicable to the case.
First If you find irora the testimony that
this street had been opened and graded, and
thereby dedicated to the public nse, that mo
ment the duty was imposed upon the Corpo
ration of keeping it in repair and in a secure
and passable condition. It the Corporation
iailed to perform its duty in this respect, and
Jeft the street in an unsafe and improper con
dition. then it is liable for any injury sustained
by such neglect of the Corporation, if it is
iound by you that tbe plaintiff exercised ordi
nary care. if be did not use ordinary care,
and the injury was the result of his own negli
gence, as well as that of the Corporation, then
he canro recover. I ought, however, perhaps,
to observe tlia' th? law does not presume negli
gence That is always a subject of proof, and
it will be for you to say whether in this case
there is any proof tending to show a want of
ordinary taie on the part of the plaintiff.
What 1 understand, gentlemen, by the term
? '?rdmary care," as applied to this case, is that
care persons ordinarily exercise in parsing
along our public streets.
?v ond. if you-flnd that this street was out of
*ep:tir, and in a tf.ingerous condition, and that
the plaintiff, using ordinary care, received this
ir.jury while passing over it, then the other
question will arise as to what compensation he
Jsentitled. 1'pon that sutqect 1 instruct you
l?at if 3'ou lind be is entitled to recover, he is
entitled to recover not only for his loss of time,
aid expense^ incident to his confinement, such
su the attendance of his physician, &.c., but he
i* entitled to have considered, in estimating
tn? amount of damages, the pain and suffering
consequent upon the injury he sustained.
The law can lay down no definite rules by
which to mea-ure an item of thi3 kird, but
your sound judgments will enable yon to
adjust tbe balance between these parties, if
you find the Corporation alone was in fault.
The question presented in this case is both
important to the rights and obligations of the
corporation of this city, and to the beat interests
of its citizens, and your verdict will do much,
2 doubt not, towards enforcing the obligations
of the former, and protecting the rights of the
latter.
i'pon these instructions the case was given
to:he jury.
Eighth pue< inct.?Yesterdayand last night
the patrolmen ot the newly enlarged Eighth
Precinct, Sergeant Milstead in charge, now
consolidated v.ith the Ninth Precinct, went on

a SUPPOSED COAT-THfEF CAUGHT.? For
?>Teral weeks past a series ot hall robberies
