This was a proceeding by motion lo
T' ? iver judgun nt on a. negotiable note
mad by E. 1.1. Hughes and Indorsed by
J. B. Winfrec. The indorscr resisted
lie- judgment upon tho following
grounds <>r defense:
"tt) Thut the plaintiff extended the
time of payment ol the note "it which
its action is brought, by a binding
agreement with the principal, It. E.
Hughes, with..nt tie- consent of the
Indorscr and defendant, John H. Win
free.

tion against the said parties on the
same p_nper on which it now seeks
Judgment, t" wit. i i tlf March term
ol the Corporation Court ?>t* the city of
Lynt'hbtirg, V?., and afterwards enter?
ed into a binding agreement for a val?
uable consideration with tin' maker and
principal, lt. E. Hughes, in extend the
tun.- of payment, and dismiss the action
and not take judgment till some subsc
qili n: ;? em. v iii ii agreement was. with?
out the knowledge sind consent of the
said .lohii D. Wlnrrec."
There was a Judgment fur plaintiff
anil defendant appealed.
The court s i ys:
It is not hoe< ssary to decide whether
nu agreement, between the hblder of ti
protested negotiable note ami the prin?
cipal, t > dismiss a suit valuhtarlly in?
stituted thereon, without the' knowl
?tit.:? ? ? nseni of the indorscr, is Bitch
tin extension of lime to the principal
as will discharge the indorscr. No Btieh
agreement as that relied on is estab?
lished in the eise al bar.
It is perfectly clear from Die facts
tint tin- defendant in error made n?
agreement to dismiss the suit in ques?
tion, except Upon the tcrnis of the let?
ter Of March 10, In:?V. from the cashier
ti ii;. Vatighnu, ono of which terms
was that the plaintiff in error was to
consent to the whole arrangement, ?ami
evidence Iiis consent by indorsing the
now note. Modlllcatlon of these terms
was persistently refused t>> the last, as
shown by the telegram from the cash?
ier to Iiis brother.
G. is, Yaiiglinn was* a special agent,
with limited author! y. He had no pow?
er to dismiss the suit, upon any other
?; I'iiiH tli.nt those contained in the cash?
ier's letter. Relying upon the ttssttr
nnoo of Hughes that he would pay the
winde note by clieck' that evening, O.
IS. Vatigiiuti transcended his authority
and dismissed the suit. The defendant
ia error knew nothing about the dls
mlss-ul i.f the suit until after the court
had stdj urncd. So far as the bank Is
concerned, the unauthorized act <,f t;.
E. Vaughaii is a mere nullity, its rinhis
in respect to tin- note being in no way
?ff. ritt ?! thereby.
In this view of tin- case, it becomes
unnecessary to consider tin- Instruc?

for a writ id" error: fur, if it were eon

AT COMMON law A COMMON i'AK
1:11:1t is LIABLE TO Tin: KI LL
i:>:ti:nt <>r a PASSENGER'S
LOSS ' >!?' DAGGAOE.
WHERE THE PURCHASER OP a
TICKET CAN NEITHER READ
NOR WRITE. and THE TICKET
WAS NOT READ TO i U.M. and ii10
I'M. NOT KNOW ITS PROVISIONS.
HIS ASSENT TO A PROVISION
LIMITING THE COMPANY'S LIA?
BILITY AS TO LOSS OK BAGGAGE
CANNOT HE PRESUMED.
This was an action asJira? a railroad
company by a pass, nger for the loss
of his baggage. The plaintiff purchased
i ticket a it obtained a check for his
baggage anieh lie .1-1 vre.i to the com?
pany. The baggage was lost. The
11 kcl contained a clause limiting the
liability of the company for loss <>f
baggage t.. wearing apparel, not cx
oet: ling $ino in value. There was a
special verdict showing the plaintiff's
damages were $I5S, of which $113 were
lor wearing apparel. The lower court
gave judgment for 1158 and defendant
appealed.
The court pays:
This a:tempt of the defendant lo
limit Its common law liability as a
common earner must be considered
With reference to the other undisputed
fa.t.-. stated in the exceptions. It is!
there stated that the evidence tended to
show l::.it th' plaintiff could neither
read nor writ-; that the ticket? were
not read to him by any person; and
that In' did not know the provisions of
lac ti. keta. With this testimony in the
caiso the defend.!nt was not entitled to
have tiie court comply with its four
requests. The defendant by its charter
ii s und a common carrier of passen?
gers ami their baggage, subject to the
common law rules in regard to liability
tin ri tor. By nearly universal coneur
ri m ?? . i ib cislons of courts of filial re-1
sort, Including the decisions of this,
court, such carrier may. by contract,
reasonably limit and vary its common
law liability, except as to its own negli?
gence. i tut, it w ill be held to that IIa
blllly until it establishes that it has
limited or varied it by a contract, ex?
press ..r Implied, existing between it
nnd its passengers. Tin- ordinary pas?
senger ticket does not pro Teas to con?
tain the contract by which the pas?
senger obtains his right lo carriage
ovi i tin- road of the carrier. Whatever
is prinicI "ti a passenger ticket has
usually I.n regarded as a notice by j
the i urrler of its desire to limit or vary
its common law liability. To affect1
such limitation, the carrier must show
that tin- passenger, when lie paid his
money an I received the ticket, did It
tinder such cth umstances that lie ay?
s'i to the conditions named upon
the ticket. Whether uuch assent Is es-?
t iblished <i pends upon the circum?
stanced of each case. Assent will not
i' presumed unless the proposed con?
ditions and limitations were known to
th pi. -'iig ns, nnd then much win de?
pend upon whether tin y are reasonable
.0 unreasonable. As tin- defendant
took no exceptions to the charge on the
subject.! of the special findings of Ihe
jury, it is to in- presumed thai the court
state,) the law correctly in regard
thereto, ami that the Jury found, as
tin- pi i ntiff's testimony tended to show,
that h? had no knowledge of the con?
ditions place) by the defendant upon
bis ticket at the lime lie purchased it.
lie must h ive Ii id knowledge of them
.it the time he paid his money. When
purchasing his ticket, the passenger
frequently has no opportunity nor time
tii examine it. ii- has a right to un?
derstand, unless directly Informed to
the tiohlrnry, that the carrier's under?
taking ins the common law liability.
It in unreasonable to held. If the Con?
ditions printed on the ticket came to
ills knowledge llrst after lie has en
: red up..ti his Journey, that he should
be held ro have assented thereto. The
special vor Hot does not establish that
the plaintiff hail knowledge of the
c mditlons printed upon his ticket, ami
his assent thereto will not be implied. |
T^e defendant rn ;s under tlie com?
mon law liability in regard t<? the loss
of the baggage. That liability entitles
plaintiff to recover for the bedding b>s:,
as for his entire loss. Reversed on an- j
other point.

The value of the farm lands contiguous

stated that a Columbus. O.. company,
