SYLLABUS IN STEVENS CASE
TW Findings e( tM Ssprmc Cevrt in tbc Case
•f the Stevens Metre*?
Bismarck Tribune: The supreme
cotirt this morning handed down a de
cision affirming the lower court in the
case of Edward Stevens, et al, vs. the
Continental Casualty Co. This is the
ease in which the minor heirs of Fred
Stevens, the brakeman who was shot
and killed in the Northern Pacific
yards here by a
nor Griffin, brought suit against the
Casualty Co., in which Stevens was in
sured against accident. The company
set up as a defense, a clause of the
policy that limited their liability to one
tenth the amount of the insurance, in
case death resulted from injury inten
tionally inflicted upon himself or by an
other. The company held that the
shooting was an intentional act and not
accidental. The case was tried in the
lower court of Cass County and a ver
dict returned for the heirs. The com
pany appealed and the supreme court in
an opinion written by Judge Cochrane
affirms the decision of the lower court.
The syllabus of the decision is as fol
1. In an action to recover upon an
accident policy insuring against in
juries incurred through external, viol
ent and purely accidental causes, but
provided that in loss of life from in
jury intentionally inflicted upon the
insured by himself or another person
the limits of the company's liability
should be one-tenth the amount which
wouid otherwise be payable under the
policy, where the defendant alleged in
its answer that the death of the in
sured was from an injury intentional
ly inflicted by a person other than the
deceased, the burden was on it to
prove that the injury of the deceased
was intentionally and not accidentally
2. Upon proof of death from a gun
shot wound, in the absencc of evi
e n e a s o o w e w o u n w a s i n
flicted, it will be presumed that the
wound was accidental and not., that it
was illegally inflicted. sr
3. While primary proofs •0f' death
are ordinarily admissible on the trial
as prima facie evidence of the facts
stated therein against the insured, and
on behalf of the insurer, where the pre
liminary proofs were made by a guar
i a n o e i n a n n e i a i s u n e e
policy, and the statement made by him
as to the cause of death were based
entirely upon hearsay, such statements
could not be considered as competent
evidence of matters therein recited as
against the infant plaintiffs, so as ta re
lieve defendant from the necessity of
proving such facts. Such statements
ane admissions of the guardian alone,
and not of the infants, and the guar
dian has lhe authority to make admis
sions against the interests of his wards.
Where defendant sought to re
duce its liability under an accident
polity, by bringing the case within a
provision herein, limiting its liability
to one-tenth of the face of the policy
in case death resulted from an injury
intentionally inflicted by insured of
another person, the intent to injure or
kill, on the part of the person inflict
ing the injury, becomes an 'essential
part of the proof, and the infliction of
the injury does not raise a presump
tion that it was done intentionally.
5. Intention is a question of fact to
be inferred from the act itself and
the surrounding circumstances so,
where the burden of proof is upon a
party to show that a shooting was
done with intent to kill or injure, the
court cannot require the jury to find
that the act was intentionally done if
the facts, and circumstances proved
can be reconciled wi'h an accidental
or non-intentional injury.
6. The evidence in this case is con
sistent with an intentional shooting of
the insured by a third person, but is not
inconsistent with and does not negative
an accidental or non-intentional shoot
ing. The .case, therefore, was properly
submitted to the jury to determine
whether the injury resulting in the
death of insured was, intentionally. in

Mrs. Grinnell wXs th**'daughter of
Charles Malnourie, a Frenchman, who
died last June at the Elbow Woods rc-j
servation. Her ealy girlhood was
spent on or near the reservation and
her first matrimonial venture was in
the form of a common law marriage,
after she hail been sold by her mother
in Indian fashion to a man named
Charles Morris, a Canadian French
man. She lived with him a very short
time, and after some difficulty with her
father, he was driven off by him. At
the time of this marriage she was but
14 years old, and after the departure
of Morris, her parents sent her to
sch(xl at Hampton, Va., where she re
mained for three years, being among
the first of the western Indians to en
ter an eastern school. Upon her re
turn from Virginia her mother arranged
for her marriage to George W. Grinnell.
a civil war veteran of the Sixth United
States infantry. This agreement was in
the form of the usual Indian purchase,
hut the lather of Josephine demurred
and insisted that his daughter should be
married 'in-a-more civilized fashion, ant!
this was done, the couple bdng married
at a Presbyterian mission 011 Fort Peck
reservation, Poplar, Mont. They re
turned to the Grinnell ranch, loeated 35
miles southeast of Fort Buford, and one
of the largest in that section of the
state.- This was in 1884. In 1888 Mr.
Grinnell met a yiolent death at the hands
of his wife.
The first element of tragedy then
entered thtv life of Josephine Grinnell.
Her husband returned to the ranch one
day in an intoxicated condition and
drove her out of the house. She start
ed to a field nearby, where some of the
hands were .It work, and her husband
followed her, riding horseback. As he
•overtook her he leaned forward and
struck her a vicious blow over the head
with his revolver. She was painfully
injured, but inanaged to get out of his
reach. Several times the enraged hus
band"" overtook her as-they ran across
the prairie, and finally as he reached
forward to strike her Grinnell fell from
his horse. The two, husband and wife,
struggled for a short trine, i prafn
view of the hired hands in the field,
when-Grinnell was seen to fall forward
limp and lifeless. With a plaited leath
er chain Mrs. Grinnell had choked her
husband to death. The chain was a
heavy affair and «was long enough to
reach around the neck. In falling the
chain had become entangled and his
wife grabbed the leather in her strug
gle to protect herself. Retaining her
hold she gradually twisted the guard
until life had been choked from her
abusive husband. She was taken to
Williston, where an inquest was held,
the coroner's jury returning the ver
"That George W. Grinnell came to his
death through the Providence of God
and at the hands of his wife."
It was by this verdict that Mrs. Grin
nell was exonerated of a charge of
murder. The ranch owned by her hus
band was heavily encumbered, and out
of the estate Mrs. Grinnell did not re
ceive to exceed $900 worth of house
hold goods, furniture and other per
sonal property, and she lost this by the.
duplicity of a brother-ixislaw.
With her father' and her four chil
dren she moved on to the reservation,
of which Major Murphy was the agent
at the time. In 1891 Major Murphy
