After reciting the facts n? shown
from the record, the court says:
Prom what goes before it will be

Brown and Cox, obtained certain sums

caused them to malte an outlay and
expenditure of other sums by deceit,

"In general, courts of equity will not
assume Jurisdiction, where the powers
of the ordinary courts are sufliclent for
the purposes of Justice, ami, therefore,
it may be stated as a general rule, sub?
ject to few exceptions, that where the
plaintiff ean have as effectual remedy
in a court of law as in a court of equity,
and that remedy Is direct, certain and
ndrquate, a demurrer, which is in truth
a demurrer to the Jurisdiction of the
court, will hold."
1' uneroy, in his. work on Equity Ju?
risprudence, says: "The fact that the
legal remedy is not full, adequate and
complete is, therefore, the real founda?
tion of this concurrent branch of tho
equity jurisdiction." "Even when the
cause of action, based upon a legal
right, does involve or present, or is
connected with some peculiar feature or
incident of the same kind as those over
which the concurrent jurisdiction or?
dinarily extends, such as fraud, ac?
counting and the like, still, if the legal
rein, dy by action and pecuniary Judg?
ment for debt or damages would be

In tli,' particular ease, the concurrent
jurisdiction of equity does not extend

an action at law will furnish an adc
t|U lie remedy, equity tloes not assume
Jurisdiction because an accounting is
demanded or needed, nor because, the

There was a Judgment for plaintiff in
the lower court and defendant except?
The Court says:
The defendant excepted to the charge
of the Judge in regard to its liability in
view of these subsequent events, which
occurred before it became necessary to
commit the plaintiff to a hospital for
tho insane. We see no error in this
part of tho charge. Tho Jury wore In?
structed that the defendant would not
be liable if the plaintiff s condition was
not caused by tho accident to her, but
by these two subsequent occurrences, or
either of them. Tho Judge further said:
"If. from all the evidence in tho case,
you are unable to distinguish tho cause
of this mental disease.?that Is. if you
arc unable to distinguish whether it
was tho accident of October. 1S94. or tho
accident to James Dunn, or the acci?
dent at Hyde Park, that war tho cause
of this mental disease?it would bo
your duty to tind for the defendant on
that issue. That is, you are not to com?
pare those various accidents one with
tho other, and try to Und out which
had tho most important effect: but if
you find that they combined together,
brought about tho mental disease, it
would bo your duty, on that Issue, to
find for the defendant" This exception
must bo overruled.

The authorities ot Atlantic City Wan!
nro taking no half-way measures at
tho present, time and sueh sanitary
work as is new in progress there was
hever known before.
Thai tho ward needed the enforce?
ment of systematic ami aggressive
measures was proved yesterday by In?
spection by a reporter of the Vlrgllllan
Pilot, who made a tonr of the*ward In
the company of Dr. George c. Fn
Ville, who has Just been appointed a
sanitary officer of thai ward. Several of
the alleys visited had apparently not
been cleaned for a long time ami were
foul with tilth, garbage, rank weeds and
assorted smells that were extremely
nauseating. In one small alley, less
than half a situate in length a cart was
taking out its second heaping load of
refuse and there was tit least one more
load of it in sight.
In front of n number of residences,
occupied by people of apparently ample
means ami average intelligence, were
large piles of refuse that had been al
lowed to accumulate on their premises ]
and the removal of which at the pres.
cut time was only prompted by the
present measures being taken by the j
Dr. Favllle Is hard at work from
early morning until late at night. He
has three gangs of live or six men
each cutting grass and weeds on the '
streets. Yesterday morning he put on
three more carts to remove refuse. I
During Tuesday and Wednesday, he
states, not a load Of garbage was re- !
moved in the ward. j
HOUSE TO HOUSE INSPECTION.
Yesterday he put Policemen Hender?
son ami Unrest, of the regular force,
to work to make a house to house in?
spection ill the ward. They will report
tti him twice a day.
All residents have been ordered to
have their places connected with the
sewers at once. This Is construed to
mean ten days from the time of the no?
tice given by tho Norfolk Hoard of
Health, and, it is stated, if any occu?
pied premises are found unconnected
at the expiration of ten days, war?
rants will issue against the owners of
There are many vacant lots In the
ward covered with rank growths of
weeds and grass and some of these lots
have had trash dumped on them. The
order has gone forth that these weeds
and grass and rubbish must be at once
cleaned up and these vacant premises
promptly put Into a clean, healthful
ALLEYS AND CUTTERS.
To-day enrts w ill be sent around with
loads of lime anil the alleys and gut?
ters will be limed wherever it appears
In this connection the excellent work
being done by Mr. .lames Riddle de?
serves commendation. He Is volun?
tarily giving the ward the benefit of bis I
valuable time and wide experience and
the services of a number of his men in
promoting the efforts to thoroughly
clean up and sanitate the ward.
BURNING THE REFUSE.
Tho grass and weeds are dried as
they are cut ami not piled in heaps to
mould. The result Is that the authorities
are accumulating each day a quantity
of this fuel, which assists materially
in the incineration of the refuse of a
damp nature, such as melon and other
kitchen refuse. Tho dried grass and
weeds are mixed in with the general
debris, kerosene oil applied and the
flrcB started when the wind Is toward
tho water. At present the debris is be?
ing .destroyed at the foot of Central
avenue, near the brick plant of E. W. |
Face ?: Son.
The garbage, as it Is carried tr? the J
place of destruction, is liberally limed
with linslacked lime, and as the gar- |
bago is generally damp. It slacks the
lime and thus the pile gets the benefit
of the entire strength of the lime.
ATLANTIC CITY PUMP HOUSE.
One of the places visited was the
pump house of Atlantic City Ward. This
is a good object lesson for residents of
tho ward, it is in every respect as neat
as a new pin. Although all the contents
of the sewer pipes of the ward pass
through this place, there Is no odor
whatever. In a few days Mr. W. If.
Robinson, the c hief engineer in charge
of the pump house will run the ex?
haust steam into the ventilating stack
of the well, thus keeping the well purer
and destroying any odor that might
arise from It. The pump house has been
thoroughly cleaned and Moors painted
and the place is scrubbed every week.
A MARSHY SPOT.
One place that would seem to need
prompt attention is a pond or marsh
on Pembroke avenue, near Colley ave?
nue, on land owned by the Norfolk
Company. The building of the road
along Pembroke avenue has cut off
the head of this pond, leaving a body
of stagnant water on one side. Tho At?

this filled, and it would seem to ho a
