Notes of Cases Recently Decided, Which are of Interest to Our People. DIGESTED BY W- B- MARTIN. (Exclusively for Virginian-Pilot) BUCK V. WARD. Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia. June L'2. 1S90. IX A CASE IN WHICH COURTS OF HAW AND EQUITY HAVE ORDI? NARILY CONCURRENT JURIS? DICTION, EQUITY HAS NOT JU? RISDICTION IF THE REMEDY AT LAW WOULD BE COMPLETE SUFFICIENT AND CERTAIN IN THE PARTICULAR CASE. EQUITY HAS NOT JURISDICTION WHEN THE BILL ALLEGES THAT DEFENDANTS OBTAINED MONEY FROM PLAINTIFFS BY DECEIT AND ASKED THAT AN OPTION CONTRACT, ALREADY EXPIRED, BE RESCINDED. After reciting the facts n? shown from the record, the court says: Prom what goes before it will be readily perceived that the gravamen i>C the bill Is that the defendants, Ward, Brown and Cox, obtained certain sums o( money from the complainants and caused them to malte an outlay and expenditure of other sums by deceit, but more especially by that of Brown and (.'ox. complainant's own associates or partners in tho enterprise engaged In. It Is true there are many averments Of fraud in tho bill, but merely de? nouncing it transaction as a fraud, doch not make it such, ami especially does not make It stub a fraud as it is pecu ; itrly the province of a court of etiuity to take cognizance or "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 complete, sufficient and certain?that is. would do full Justice to the litigants? In tli,' particular ease, the concurrent jurisdiction of equity does not extend :.i such case. For example, whenever 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 c use involves or arises from fraud, nor becau.se a contribution is sought from persons jointly indebted, nor even to recover money held in trust, where an action for money had ami received will lie." The bill upon Its face calls for no relief thai can be afforded complain? ants other than a decree (??v specific sums of money claimed of the defend? ants, the dates fruin which interest would run upon the several amounts being made to appear by the bill it? self; As we have seen, the option con? tract asked tn be rescinded, by its own terms and inherent limitations, became "null and void to all intents anil pur? poses" at the expiration of six months from its date * ? ? ami this suit was n n brought until more than one month after the contract became a llclrrrtC: \V< ure or opinion that the demurrer c h. ui I have been sustained and the bill dismissed upon the ground that the complainants had, if any, a complete, i triain ami adequate remedy at law. Amen led ami allhmed. ROONEY V. X. V.. X. H. &? H. R. CO. Supreme Judicial Court of Mass. April 17. 1899. A RAILROAD COMPANY IS NOT LT ABLE FOR THE INSANITY OF AN INJURED PERSON WHICH RESULTS FROM SEEING Till: BODIES OF PERSONS KILLED AND INJURED IN OTHER ACCI? DENTS, or WHERE IT WAS THE RESULT OF T1I10 ACCIDENT AND THE SUBSEQUENT OCCUR 1! E NCES COM HIN BD. This was nn nctioh for damages re? sulting from an injury occasioned by an nc 'ident op defendant's road. The evidci e tended to show that plaintiff received i? nervous shock at the time of the accident, which resulted in in? sanity. The accident occurred in Octo? ber, 1S91, and in August. ls<i?, John Dunn, an acquaintance of the plaintiff was run over ami killed anil plaintiff saw the de.nl body. On October 24, lS!?."i. another railroad accident occurred at Hyde Park. And the plaintiff saw tho hiilics of the injured lying in the sta? tion shortly after the accident. These Substitution for an article sought by a legitimate buyer is wrong treatment and had policy, from a number of points of view. To hecm with, the average buyer know what they want, and object to be? ing told that such and such a thing is "better" or "Just as good," that tin- sane man or Arm mnk< a or bottles it '??arid it must be all right." The dealer who makes thes,. arguments stands in his own light, and dcservi s to lv sat down upon and h.is methods shown up.

V?. two occurrences hail some effect on her mental condition, and she was after? wards committed as an Insane person. There was a Judgment for plaintiff in the lower court and defendant except? ed. 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. AN ORDER RESCINDED. ! A NORTH CAROLINA TOWN SKF.S ITS ERROR. I Tho following correspondence ex? plains itself: Portsmouth. Va.. . August n. ison. ! Dr. L. J. Plcot, Littleton, N. C: ' Referring to quarantine of Littleton against Norfolk and Portsmouth. This action is simply absurd. There Is ab? solutely no occasion for alarm: official reports from Surgeon General Wyman. in charge of Hampton, reports tho fev? er Is entirely confined to tho Soldiers' Home; no deaths in tho past twenty j four hours and only two new cases. An I absolute strict quarantine Is being i maintained against Hampton, Newport I News. Old Point and the entire ponin ' BUla, and there is absolutely no reason ' for your people lo feel alarmed. The action or your Health Hoard will mlll ? t?te very much against the business of : your town. Yours is tho only place In the United States that has quarantined against Norfolk or Portsmouth.

Doctor rnvlllo Moans Itnslness-At? lantic citj Ward** nodol Pninn Jlou-c-I.oii?a or nuruse From Small nion, 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 authorities. 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 same. VACANT LOTS. 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 condition. 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 necessary. 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? lantic City Local Hoard has ordered this filled, and it would seem to ho a place calling for careful ami prompt attention. "*n Empty *ncn Cnnnot Stand rprlgtil."
