The plaintiff was the beneficiary in
a life Insurance policy issued by de?
fendant on the lifo of a debtor of the
plaintiff. The debtor died and suit was
brought on the policy. The company
claimed that the debtor had obtained
the policy by fraud; The lower court de?
cided in favor ol the defendant on a
demurrer to the evidence and plaintiff
appealed. The Court of Appeals sus?
taining lite lower court says:
The court is of opinion tint section
n.L'W of the Code, which provides that
no failure to perform any condition or
restrictive provision cd' a policy shall
be a valid defence to an action there?
on unless such condition or restrictive
provision be printed in type of a speci?
fied size or written with pen and ink
-In?or on the policy, applies ai;k- to the
application and the poll) y issued there?
on, where, as In the ease under consid?
eration. Hie application is expressly
made a part of the contract of insur?
ance. * ? Any other construction
would enable the insurer to avoid the
statute by muting all such conditions
and rcsttcllve provisions in the appli?
cation alone. The clause in the applica?
tion obnoxious to this provision of the
statute must therefore be disregarded,
and tlie case considered as if no con?
ditions, or restrictive provisions were
embodied in the contract sued on. The
defendant company by Its plea, puts
in issue the bona Ildes of the contract
by alleging that the answers made by
the insured to c< rtnln material ques?
tions were absolutely false and untrue,
and that they were made for the pur?
pose of misleading, deceiving and de?
frauding the defendant, and did de?
ceive and mislead It into Issuing th"
policy sued on. Recognising and giving 1
full force to the rule controlling in case |
of a demurrer to evidence this plea Is
abundantly sustained. The policy In
question was issued for the benefit of a
creditor of the insured, and it is con?
tended (hat tho beneficiary is not affect?
ed by the raise representations of the
insured, because the agent of the com?
pany wlio took the application bad
knowledge of the- falsity of such state?
ments at the time they were made, and
that the company Is estopped to rely
on tlte same us avoiding the policy. In?
dependent <>f the question whether
such knowledge if possessed by the
agcnl would bind the company, and
pri venl it from relying on the fraud of
the insured, the evideni e does not sus?
tain the contention that any sm h
knowledge was brought home to the
it would hardly he contended that if
the Insured had taken out this pdlley
for his own benefit tit.it his estate could
recover it In the face ,.f the gro-,* fraud
shown to have been perpetrated by him
In procuring It. There is nothing In
tli-' circumstances of the eis? to place
the beneficiary in any better position
thin the insured vvntild have occupied
had the policy been for his benefit.
Where insurance is i ffeetod upon the
life of a third person for the lien.fi: of
a creditor, and misrepresentations of
materials matters inducing the contract
are made by I bo narty whose Ufa I''
sttred, it will vitiate the policy, al?
though the beneficiary was ignorant of
such false representations. For these
reasons the judgment complained of
must be affirmi d.

Supreme Court of Georgia, December
A PLAINTIFF CANNOT DISMISS
HIS SUIT AFTER FINDING THAI'
THE JURY ARE ABOUT TO RE?
TURN A VERDICT AGAINST HIM.
A RAILROAD COM PA N Y. AS WARE?
HOUSEMAN, IS N'">T LIABLE FOR
GOODS DESTROYED BY A FIRE,
WHICH WAS CAUSED BY THE
NEGLIGENCE OF AN INDEPEN?
DENT CONTRACTOR, WHO WA3
REPAIRING ITS WHARVES NEAR
This was a suit by the plaintiff gro?
cery company against the tiefenden!
railroad company to recover the value
of certain rait, which was stored in
a war- house of the railroad company
and was destroyed by fire. The fire
was caused by the negligence of a
party who had contracted to repair
the wharf of the railroad company,
near the warehouse, and was using a
pile-driving engine for that purpose,
sparks from which were supposed to
have caused Iho tiro. The defendant
had no control over tlte contractor's
Handel or machinery, simply paying
him for his work when finished. Just
before the jury returned Its verdict
for the defendant the plaintiff's coun?
sel moved 10 dismiss the suit, which
motion the court overruled and rc
celvcd the verdict and gave judgment
for the defendant. The plaintiff ap?
pealed. The court say.-:
It appears from the record that the
judge at the conclusion of the charge
to the jury, being about to take a re?
cess until the next day, instructed the
jury that, if they should agree upon
a verdict during the recess, the fore?
man should retain it, and the jury
might then disperse until court con?
vened. The court then, upon request
of counsel for both parties, gave per?
mission Of counsel to ascertain from
the jury their Unding, w hen made. Pur?
ins the recess, counsel for plaintiff as
eertained that the verdict was In fav?
or of the defendant; and when the
judge, upon tho convening of court next
day, was about to receive) the verdict
of the Jury, counsel for plaintiff moved
to dismiss the case. The court, upon
objection of counted for defendant,
overruled the motion to dismiss, and
ordered that the verdict be entered of
re,-oril, which was done.
Under the decisions of this court, the
paintiff has this privilege at any tint*,
even after the commencement of the
trial, provided it Is exercised before the
rendition or publication of a verdict.
Manifestly, there Is no right on his part
t<> dismiss the case after a formal re?
turn bv the Jury of their verdict into
court, and after counsel had thus been
made aware of the result of the trial.
In this case permission was given by
the court for the jury to disperse after
they had found their verdict, and they
were also authorized t<> make known
their finding to the counsel who repre?
sented tlie contending parties, it was
ascertained by counsel for plaintitr.
during the recess of the court, what
the verdict was. So far as the right of
plaintiff to dismiss Its action was con?
cerned, we think the ascertainment of
tiie verdict in this way was tantamount
to its publication, in lVeplcs v. Hoot,
is Ca. 692, it was decided that the
plaintiff may dismiss his case at any
time before the verdict is published, if
unknown to him.
The authorities seem to be uniform
to the effect that, where there is failure
on the part of the warehouseman to de?
liver goods on demand, there Is a pre?
sumption of liability, and the burden
is on him of accounting for the goods;
but it does not follow from this that
the burden necessarily remains on him
throughout the case, for he may ac?
count for the goods by showing their
loss In such a way (by burglary or an
accidental tire, for instance) ns will
shift the onus, and will raise .the pre?
sumption that the loss thus accounted
for was not tin- result id" the ware?
houseman's negligence. Hut we do not
deem it necessary to puss directly upon
this Question in the decision of this
case. Even if tlie onus probandi was
upon the ,!, fendant to tlie fullest extent
claimed by the plaintiff in error, we
thmk it was successfully carried by the
unconlradictcd testimony in the case.
Tin- theory of plaintiff's counsel evi?
dently was that the fire was commu?
nicated to the warehouse from the en?
gine Unit was being operated by the
contractor, ami was the result of nogll
gen e, in not having the engine pro?
vided with a spark arrester, or with
some contrivance to prevent tlie spread
of tire, and that, this contractor being
an employee of the defendant com?
pany, this negligence was attributable!
to the company. There is no question,
under the testimony, but that the party
engaged in the operation of this en?
gine was an Independent contractor',
and was not subject to any direction
and < ontrol in the management of bis
Rim hinery ami In the operation of his
business by the railroad company.
The ;lc t which the contractor was do?
ing was in violation of no duty Im?
posed by contract with the employer,
nor in violation of any duty imposed by
tile statute; and the employer diil not
retain the right to control tlie time and
manner of executing the work, or In?
terfere and assume control, so as to
create the relation of master and ser?
vant: nor diil tlie employer ratify tho
wrong of the Independent contractor.
Where none of these things exist, It
manifestly follows from the statutes
nbove cited that there can be no lia
blllty on the part .if the employer.
Wo think the Court was "right in
overruling the motion to dismiss.

The Wise-Young contest has been

It appears from the following notice
served on Mr. Young yesterday that
the ground h?g weather of February
knocked the bottom out of Dr. Wise's
aspirations. Whether this is so or not
the reporter expresses no opinion, but
Judge Brooke, Mr. Youngs attorney,
snid yesterday that he was certain that
Dr. Wise had failed to make out a case
and that his intention td disregard tie
letter of the law is an easy way of
coming down from a high perch.
The notice is as follows:
Mr. William A. Young:
Pear Sir:?The unusual storms and
fall of snow in the Second Congres?
sional District of Virginia during tho
period between January *j4th and Feb?
ruary 20th, IV.?!), have made the roads
in the district practically Impasablc,
anil blocked travel in every part of the
district and rendered it imposlble for
me to take tho voluminous testimony
which was necessary to establish my
ense in the contest for . seat in the
Fifty-sixth Congress of the I'nited
States, in which contest you are the
eontestec and 1 am the contestant. It
baa been Impossible for the witnesses
to come to the plnces appointed for
taking depositions, and although every?
thing that was possible has been done
I to llnlsh the work within the time men?
tioned in the statute, a great deal of
testimony remains untaken. and Justice
cannot he done if I am concluded by the
lapse of forty days from January 24,
IS'.!!?. Take notice, therefore, that 1
shall and will continue the taking ->f
depositions after March 4th. 1S99, for nt
least twenty days, and having taken
suc h depositions 1 shall insist that the
same shall he considered and read by
the House of Representatives as part
of the evidence to which I am entitled
in the hearing of said contest. I shall
contend that the House of Representa?
tives In the Fifty-sixth Congress Is by
Article 1, Section ? of the Constitution
of the United states, made the sole
judge of the election returns and quali?
fication of Its members; that in this
contest It Is the right of that House to
ilo substantial Justice; that It may, if
it see lit. disregard the time limit for
the taking of contestant's testimony by
tho statute passed by a preceding t'on
greas, and that it should under the cir?
cumstances disregard said time and
hoar the testimony so taken.
You uro further notified that I am
willing to enter Into a stipulation with
you whereby my time for taking the
testimony shall be extended for twenty
[days from the 4th of March,
ISOfi, in consideration of the premises,
and your time for taking- testimony
shall not be deemed to begin until thai
dale, and shall continue for forty days
therefrom, after which period tho ten
days allowed for rebuttal testimony
Please protect your Interests in this
matter. RICHARD A. WISE.

during the succeeding forty days, and
the contestant may take testimony in
