(Exclusively for VlrclnJan-PUot) SOUTHERN R. CO. V. HUDG-HJS. Supreme Court of Georgia. April 22, 1899. WHEN A PETITION TO REMOVE A CASE TO THE U. S. COURT FROM A STATE COURT IS FILED, AC? COMPANIED BY A PROPER BOND, THE ONLY QUESTION FOR THE STATE COURT TO DETERMINE IS WHETHER THE RIGHT TO RE? MOVE APPEARS ON THE FACE OF THE PETITION AND RECORD. IF IT DOES, THE POWER OF THAT COURT IS ENDED. IN SUCH CASE, NO NOTICE OF THE PROCEEDINGS TO REMOVE NEED BE GIVEN THE OTHER PARTY. In this case the lower court granted an order removing the cause to the United Stales Court and afterwards set aside said order, from which last order the ttcfendant company appealed. The Court says: Under the act of Congress of March 3, 1887 (24 Stat. 552), it Is made the duty of the State Court, when a proper pe? tition and bond for removel under the terms of the act are presented, to ac? cept the same, and proceed no further in such suit. The provisions of this act nowhere require any notice to be given to the opposite party of the'-proceed? ings taken to accomplish the removal. Indeed, the contemplation of the act, as clearly Inferable from the third sec? tion, Is that, whenever any party may be entitled to remove such a suit, the only requirement to accomplish the re? moval is to present a petition therefor, which, in connection with \the record, shows tho suit to be removable under the act, and present a bond satisfactory to the Court, conditioned as provided by the statute. It has been expressly decided by this Court tin the case of Ficklln v. Tarver, 59 Ga. 2C3. that no? tice to the opposite pnrty Is not neces? sary. On the subject of notice this Court there said: "When the petition .and bond are made and filed, the matter Is ready for the Court to act upon. If it is In the power'of the Stinte, by sta? tute, rules, or practice, or otherwise, to make notice a condition precedent, In addition to what the act of Congress has prescribed, this State has not done so." Mr. Black, In his treatise on the laws and practice governing the re? moval of causes, snys: "It Is not neces? sary for the defendant to notify the plaintiff or his attorney of his inten? tion to apply for the removal of the case, or of his filing a petition and bund for that purpose. ? * ? It is purely a matter of favor or courtesy to the adverse party and bis counsel, and the omission to give notice will not warrant the State Court In refusing the application." Black, Dill. Rom. Causes, section 188. It was therefore not necessary that any notice should have been given to Mrs. Hudgins or her counsel of the proceedings to remove the ense, to render the order of removal valid and legal. 2. The further grounds upon which the plaintiff sought to vacate the order of removal may be considered under one bend. It Is urged that the defend? ant In not a foreign, but is a domestic corporation, and that It is not a citizen of another State, but at tho time of tho commencement of the suit It was a citi? zen of tho State of Georgia, and not entitled, under the acts of Congress, to remove the cause from the Stete to the United Rtntes Circuit Court. These ob? jections raise the question of fact whether tho defendant was at the time of the institution of the RUilt a citizen of Virginia, as it Is alleged In the peti? tion for removsl, or was In fncit a citi? zen of Georgia, or a corporation organ? ized and operating a line of railroad un? der franchises granted by this State. In the case of llornn v. Strachau, S2 Ga. 50.1, this court ruled that, when a petition for removal of the cause to a Circuit Court of tho United States Is filed in a cause pending Tri K state court, the only question left for the State court to determine is the question of law, whether, admitting the facts stated in tho petition to be true, it appears on the face of the record, In? cluding the petition, the pleadings, and the proceedings down to that time, that the petitioner is entitled to a removal; and, if an issue of fact is made upon the petition, that Issue must be tried In tho Circuit Court. The petition for removal was regular, filed in due time, and the security satisfactory to the court. So that, under the rule recog? nized by the authorities just cited, the objections to removal set out in tho second and third grounds can only be determined by reference to the record. The petition for removal avers that the defendant was at the time of the com? mencement of this suit,'and still is, a corporate body under the laws o? Vir? ginia, and was then and is now a resi? dent r,nd citizen of the State of Vir? ginia, and a non-resident of the State of Georgia. The truth ns to whether the defendant is a citizen of Georgia must be determined by the Circuit Court, and If found against the con? tention of diverse citizenship, under the law, the case would be remanded to the State court: and no appeal or writ of error from the decision so remand? ing the case is allowed.

AN APPELLATE COURT WILL NOT REVISE ERRORS PREDICATED UPON THE ABUSE OP COUNSEL OP HIS PRIVILEGE IN ARGUING THE CASE BELOW, tjjlLESS IT APPEAR THAT fcjHE'' OTHER PARTY .ASKED AND WAS' RE? FUSED AN INSTRUCTION TO THE JURY TO DISREGARD THE UN? AUTHORIZED STATEMENTS OP ? THE COUNSEL. The point deckled appears from the opinion of the Court. The Court says: The ninth assignment Is that court erred in permitting counsel for plaintiff, In their argument before the Jury,'to use the language set forth in bills ot exception Nos. 16 and 17, and apply the same to defendant and defendant's wit? nesses. The language complained of In bill No. 1G Is as follows: " A railroad is an artificial being, without life, with? out soul, as culd as iron, as heartless as marble; that it had no wife, no child, no life; that its management, through Its agents, was ns devilish -as It could be." And that set forth In bill No. 17 ns follows: "During these hard times, when employment is scarce, when rail? road men are plenty, when there are thoso in good employment, It is a groat Incentive, if they have committed a wrong, to try to help It out. and cover It up, so the road will not be liable to discharge them. Every Inducement, In trying to get them to misrepresent the facts, If there is a wrong commit? ted, and make the railroad free from damages, is used that can be mustered up wtlthln the human breast." In Young v. State, 19 Tex. App. 536 (Syl., point 2): "In order to authorize this court to revise errors predicated upon the abuse of the counsel of the privilege of argument, it should be made to appear that the accused requested, and was re? fused, an Instruction to the Jury to dis? regard tho unauthorized statements of the counsel." In discussing the matter the Court says: " Counsel for defend? ant excepted to said remarks, and did nothing more;" that counsel should have requested the Court to Instruct the Jury that they should not be Influ? enced by the remarks so objected to. Court further say. If such Instruction had been asked and refused, the error would have been sufficient to reverse , the judgment, but this was not done; and this was a case in which the nfllr man?! of tho-judgment remanded the appellant to his death. In Vannatta V. Duffy, 4 Ind. App. ICS. the Court hold that: "In order to save the question of al? leged misconduct on the part of coun? sel in making an argument to the jury, an objection should have been made, and a ruling Insisted upon, that the re? marks were Improper, and that they should bo withdrawn by counsel and disregarded by the jury, and, falling to obtain a favorable rul'ing, an excep? tion should have been taken to the ac? tion of the court. After this, still other remedies were available. The party could have moved to eet aside the submission, and discharge the jury, or he could have asked the court to give a special Instruction upon the subject of tho counsel's objectionable remarks." In State v. Hull, 13 R, I. 207. "At the trial thd'Attorney General stated to the Jury that It wa<3 the privilege of the defendant to testify or not, and then, strongly commented on the defendant's omission to' testify or to adduce evi? dence. Tho court condemns the con? duct of the Attorney General, but, na the record showed no request made by the defendant for instructions to the Jury to disregard the Attorney General's statements, decline to consider euch conduct as a reason for a new trial." If the appellant desired the full benefit of his exception to the language used, It was his duty to insist that the same should be withdrawn from the jury, or have the court Instruct the jury to dis? regard it. and, upon refusal of the court to so instruct, to except to the ruling of the court, or to move to set aside the submission and discharge the Jury, because they were prejudiced against the appellant by said language; and the defendant, having "made no motion to arrest the trial on that score," but pro? ceeded with the trial "without objec? tion, will not afterwards be heard to object that the trial was vitiated there? by." While I do not think the lan? guage complained of is sufficient ground for a new trial, e%'en If appellant had Itlkl'li all?the iili ujaty?otopa?<ta have the full benefit of his objections, yet. as the matter comes up on the re? cord, ond is urged as ground for a re? versal of the judgment and granting a new trial, I deem it proper for this court to express, as It has on former occasions, disapprobation of that style of argument before a jury.

Curtis, of Rich-, inond, and George B. Kuzel, of Rock ingham, and S. S. Miller, of Accomac, present. This session was un extraor? dinarily Important one, In that Captain W. E. Hurglns, commander of tho Virginia Oyster Navy, was tried on tho charge preferred by former members of the crew of the gunboat Chesapeake, to the effect that in feeding the crew he did not use all of the money allowed by the State for that.purpose, and that he failed to measure up to his duty In patrolling the oyster grounds at night. It will be recalled that all but two of the crew left when the Chesapeake, the flagship of the fleet, entered upon yel? low fever patrol duty during the pres? ence of that disease in the Soldiers' Home at Hanu<ton. FAILED TO AGREE. The board was In session until '1 o'clock this morning, but failed to reach an agreement. A resolution was offer? ed by one member favorable to Captain Hudglns, though censuring him mildly. This was supported by two members, while the other two voted against It.

ORDER. FOR CARS?WILSON MOV? ING FOR LINE. There is no foundation In the rumor that the Southern Railway will move their Immense shops from Salisbury to Charlotte. The Southern officials are satisfied with the present location, and they bave not the remotest idea of moving them. Among orders reported for additions to the rolling stock of Southern roads are 1.000 box cars of 60,000 pounds ca? pacity A plan Is being discussed whereby the new Richmond, Petersburg and Carolina Railroad, instead of building its link through the city of Richmond to the Richmond Froderloksburg and Potomac Railroad tracks, may use the Chesapeake and Ohio tracks from Richmond to Hanover Junction, and there tap the Richmond, Frederlcks burg and rotomuc. I We hoar it said that the Coast Line I officials mean business strictly in cut I ting the lino of the Yadkln division of the Wilmington and Weldoh road into the Coast Line track at Parktori, de? flecting from Lumber Bridge, says the Lumber Bridge News. If will take about sixty days to build the road and begin the running of trains over it. The line from bore to Hope Mills then be discontinued and we will go to FiiyettcVillc by the way of Parkten. We will be a few miles further, rind tickets will cost -.i few cents m >i . no doubt. Wilson, N. Ci wants the Raleigh and Great Eastern Railway to go to that live town as a competing line. The Wil? son News says: "The line of road sketched Would re? quire the laying of only forty-live miles of track to connect Wilson with the Seaboard's central line at Raleigh, and to ensure to Wilson an outlet to the World and reduce Its freight many thousands of dollars each year. In fact, a careful computation of the freights handled at this point shows that at the Blight reduction of 10 cents on the 100 pounds, the outlay of building the road would bo saved to the town In a period of ton years, while the competition offered by this road could be safely calculated to give us a reduction of at least 25 cents on the 100 pounds." i iii i ii f|iinr(erljr ('oulcrctice.
