AMOUNT TO AN ENGAGEMENT
This was an notion at law to recover
the amount of a note executed by the
appellant, Oarbcr, to the appellees for
the first premium on an insurance pol?
icy issued to him on Iiis life.
The defendant filed a special
plea claiming thai the note had
been obtained by false representa?
tions made to him by nlaintlff's agent.
one Weber, without which he would not
have taken out the policy nor executed
the note; that said agent informed
and assured the defendant that the In?
surance, company would pay him the
cash surrender value of a policy which
ho already had in that company if he
would lake out the new policy, and
relying upon this representation ami
assurance ho took out the new policy
und executed the note; that the Insur?
ance Company, although he requested
and demanded of It a iterforntailCG of
the contract of the agent, failed and
refused to pay him In cash the cash
surrender value of his former policy,
and he averred that by reason "f . aid
failure his note was null and void, and
that be was not bound to pay it.
Upon a demurrer to evidence the
lower court derided for the plaintiffs
and the defendant, Garbe r. appealed.
The court says:
This idea was objected to. but the
court held It to bo sulllclcnt, and al?
lowed It to be filed. In doing this it
j must have held that the reprcsenla
I Hons and nssumnces of Weher,
amounted to an engagement or under?
taking, and were not mere expressions
of opinion, as to what the Insurance
I company would do, for if this latter
construction be rait upon Ihn plea It did
not set up a good defence, ami the ob?
jection to It ought to have been sus?
tained. Construing the plea as setting
up Ktieh an engagement or undertaking,
is the plea sustained by the evidence?
The defendant himself Is the only wit?
ness us to what took place between
Weber and himself. There can be no
doubt from the defendant's evidence
that he was induced to lake out the
now policy of Insurance by reason of
the representations of Weber, but were
they anything more than expressions
of oplnl'gl on the part of Weber us to
what the insurance company would do?
Weber had no authority to bind the In?
surance company to pay the cash sur?
render value of the old policy- Ills
language does not show that he in?
tended to agree, that his company
would pay it. neither does the defen?
dant seem to have so understood him.
for he says that when Weber assured
him that there would be no trouble
about getting the cash surrender value
of Ills old policy, he "thought Weber
knew what he was talking about." If
lie had been under the Impression that
Weber was making a contract or en?
tering into an engagement for his
company by what lie said the defen?
dant used very Inappropriate language
to express his meaning. But If he un?
derstood that Weber was expressing an
opinion ns to what his company would
do, upon which he (defendant) could
r-dy, his language was peculiarly ap?
After very careful consideration of
all the evidence, and in the most fav?
orable light for the defendant, as we
nie bound to consider it upon a de
murrcr to the evidence, ami with a
strong desire. If possible under the law

NEGLIGENCE ? ACCIDENT AT
RAlLRt IAD CROSSING.
'WHERE A RAILROAD CROSSING IS
IN A POPULOUS LOCALITY AND
MUCH USED BY THE PUBLIC,
Hi T NOT IN A CITY OR TOWN OR
AT A PUBLIC ROAD, ESTABLISH?
ED BY LAW. WHAT CONSTI?
TUTES NEGLIGENCE IN AP?
PROACHING AND RUNNING
OVER SAID CROSSING DEPENDS
UPON Tili-: CIRCUMSTANCES OP
EACH i AHE, AND IS IM BE DE?
TERMINED liV TIM-: JURY;
Einnin Parrot! sued the Railroad
Company for damages arising from the
killing of lu-r husband by a train which
was aibged lo have been due to the
gross negligence of the company. The
accident occurred at the crossing of a
road running through Union Point
with tin- railroad. Union Point was an
unincorporati .1 village of about i.nu.i In?
habitants, The crossing in question is
the only cru-iing Immediately within
the settl -nient. and is the one which Is
used by I he inhabitants of the village
in passing from one side of the town
to the other. To the east of the cross?
ing, and on the south side of the track,
were two cotton-seed house,;, and a
freight car was between the crossing
and the seed houses. The car was on
l side track between the need houses
and the main line. The main line is
straight f-.r a half mile to the cant.
The seed houses and some bushes not
taller than a wagon would obstruct a
person's view in approaching the cross?
ing. Th? road which crosses the rail?
road in riot a public road established
pursuant tu law. When deceased was
seen approaching the crossing his at?
tention seemed to be diverted to a train
which was shifting on the west of the
crossing. After the deceased was seen
upon the track in a position of peril,
all that diligence required was .lone to
stop tin- train. The Jury returned a
verdict for the plaintiff for $000.
The < 'ourt says:
"The collision not having occurred at
a public load crossing, the defendant
was under no statutory duty to give a
signal or check the train in approach?
ing thereto. Within the limits of incor?
porated cities and towns and outside of
such limits wherever a. line of railroad
crosses a road which has been estab?
lished pursuant to law, a railroad com?
pany. In the operation of its trains, is
bound to give such signals and perform
such acts as are required by statute in
the latter ease, and those which may
he required by such reasonable regula?
tions as the municipal authorities may
prescribe In the former. A failure in
either case to comply with the require?
ments of the law applicable would
amount to negligence in law. In the
case of Comer vs. Shaw, chief Justice
Simmons uses this language: 'Where a
railroad crossing is in a populous lo?
cality, and Is much used by the public,
even though tile provisions of Civ. Co le.
Section 2222. are not applicable,
greater care is required of railroad
companies with respect to speed and
signals than is i.> be expected at places
where tho railroad is crossed by unfre?
quented country roads not established
by law as public roads; but n.incompli?
ance at such a place with the statutory
requirements applicable t'> public roads
established by law is not. as a matter
of law, negligence per se. It is general?
ly for the jury to say whether, under
such circumstances, the railroad com?
pany was negligent or not. This dis?
tinction is also to be taken into con?
sideration when we come to consider
the conduct of persons attempting to
cross the railroad at such p' 'es. Where
the crossing is one to Which the statu?
tory requirements above referred to are
applicable, a person about to cross has
a right to expect that the railroad com?
pany, in the running of its trains, will
comply with these requirements; and
reliance upon the discharge of its duty
in the premises may, in some decree.
excuse a want of full diligence on his
part In looking out for the approai h
of a train. Where, however, the stat?
ute Is not applicable, a person about to
cross must assume a. greater burden of
care than he would be required to as?
sume if the crossing were one to which
the statute applied.'
Applying these principles to the case
under consideration, it was for the Jury
to determine whether, under ail the cir?
cumstances, it was the duty of the rail?
road company to have given a signal of
the train approaching this crossing, and
to have slackened the speed of the
same, and, if in this respect there was
a failure of duty on the defendant's
part, then whether the deceased by the
exercise, of ordinary care could have
avoided the consequences of its negli?
gence in not giving the Bignal and re?
ducing the speed of tile train. It?dp*
pea ring from the record that two ju?
ries have decided these issues in favor
of the plaintiff, and there being no
complaint whatever of the manner in
which the ciiflc was tried or in
which the Judge submitted it to the
jury, we will not Interfere with his dis?
cretion In refusing a new trial. Judg?
ment on main bill affirmed.
