ounla he Hallway company vs. George
Bow-rs against the company, the su
premo court of the United States con
strued a delicate question concerning
the application of the laws of one jur
isdiction In another. It was an action
for damages brought in a Texas Btate
court by Sowers, a brakeman on the
railroad and a citizen of Arizona,
caused by an accident which occurred
In New Mexico. The trial court award
ed $3,000 damages and that verdict
was affirmed by the supreme court's
The Injury sustained by Sowers was
riding on the tender of an engine In
assisting in switching, and the railroad
company contended because he was on
the tender he was guilty of contribu
tory negligence. The Texas court de
rided, however, that as riding on the
engine tender was customary with
trainmen It did not constitute neg
ligence. The railroad company sought to
have disposition of the case controlled
by the law of New Mexico, prohibiting
bringing In another Jurisdiction of
suits for damages sustained in that
territory. The Texas court held this
law to be applicable only to citizens
of New Mexico and not binding on
others and the supreme court sus
tained this view.

She was hysterical. Witness said Mrs
Kastman told him Colonel Cooper,
said to earmark "That is like a dast

On cross-examination Morgan was
asked to repeat the conversation with
Mrs. Eastman "Mrs. Eastman was

Jumped In front of her and Colonel
Cooper, then said: 'That Is ;ike a

did not attempt to detail the entire
tranedy. but gave him the impression
that Colonel Cooper shot Senator
earmark without giving him a chance.
Morgan heard three shots.
Dr. Duncan Eve, a surgeon of thirty
five years' practice, was called and
the mounds described by Dr. Glasgow,
were related to him. He was asked if
the wounds so described were fatal.
He declared that all the wounds would
prove fatal and that in two of the
wounds described death would be in
stantaneous. He said he treated
Robin Cooper after the tragedy and
probed the wound half an inch, but
did not secure the bullet. He said
the wound was made by a missile from
a weapon. Explaining how the bullet
which afterward was found In Robin's
bed got out of the wound, he said there
is but one explanation that Is
that it worked out; that the bullet
was Imbedded In a muscle which
moved every trine the shoulder, arm
and .head moved. This would tend to!
move the bullet and the large size of
the wound would make it easy to work
out. Dr. Eve described how he re-'
moved twenty-six grains of powder
from the young man's face and neck. I
If the wound had gone half an inch 1
deeper It would have been fatal. !
Adjutant General Brown testified he:
visited the office of J. F. Bradford the!
afternoon of the tragedy at Bradford's'
request to keep the note Colonel Coop-
er had written to send to Carmack. He
saw Bradford and Cooper there and :
after a half hour's conference Coopei .
agreed not to send the note and Brad-'
ford was to send some one to see Car-
mack and to try to patch up the'
t trouble. Colonel Cooper waited in the
office until time to go to the mansion.
Robin, who was there, wanted to go
: with his father, but the colonel ob-
Jected, saying there was jio necessity,
j While in the office the phone rang
I and Bradford answered it. "I saw his
face grow white and he said: 'My God!'
and added 'Carmack has shot Robin
. and Robin has killed Carmack.' " Wit
' ness was not cmss-examlned.
Judge J. C. Bradford detailed the
conference In his office at 3 o'clock.
just as Colonel Cooper Sid General
Brown had done He told the result
and how Cooper and Robin started for
