three feet deep at the edge of the side

filled up, but the rain, had caused the
earth .to sink, making the hole Into
which Builey fell. He sustained a dis
location of the hip, which has perma
nently lamed him. He was also badly
bruised about the head. It Is con
tended that the borough Is responsible
for the accident, as it was bound to keep

jured. When court adjourned last even

NEW TRIAL INJIUNLEY CASE
.ludije Archbald Discourses on pro
pounding (Questions to Jury.
HE TH1XKS IT IS BEXEIMCIAL
Aids tho Court in Ascertaining If an In
telligent Verdict Hus Been Rendered
and Keeps a Check on Uncertainty
of General Verdicts.
In an opinion handed down by Judge
Archbald yesterday afternoon a ikw
trial was granted in the oase of Mrs.
Ann Munley against the city of Scan
ton. Patrick Munley, of Archbald, on Nov.
2"i, 1889, was in this city and while
passing along lower Lackawanna uve
nue fell from a temporary sidewalk
Into an air lot owned by John Hull, on
which a brick store building wus then
Mr. Munley was killed by the fall and
his widow, Mrs. Ann Munley, brought
suits agallist Mr; Hull, the owner of
the property, and the city of Scranton
to recover damages.
The cuse against Mr. Hull was tried
about a yeur ago and a nonsuit granted
on the ground that he Was not the per
son responsible for the acoldent. In
November lust 'the case against the city
was called and the Jury returned u
verdict In' favor of Mrs. Munley for
Jury Wanted Information.
While the jury wus deliberating on
the case It came Into court and asked
If the testimony of Patrolman Walsh,
who was the only eye witness to the
acciden t, should be considered. One of
the Jury also asked the court to tell
him whether or not a man was drunk
when he was Intoxicated. The opinion
of Judge Archbald granting a new trial
Is In part as follows:
"The purpose of propounding ques
tions to a jury and requiring them to
make answer thereto in addition to
their general verdict is not only to as
sist them in arriving at an intelligent
verdict, but to enable the court to
know whether they have done so. The
value of this practice us a check upon
the uncertainty of a general verdict
will be better appreciated when we
have had a little lunger experience of It.
"It is recommended by Justice Will
lams In his address at the commence
ment of the Dickinson Law schoul In
June last and might well be made the
subject of legislative action. Its Im
portance is exemplified here. One of the
most material points In the city's de
fense was the alleged Intoxication of
Munley, the subject of the accident.
Weight of Kvidcncc Other Way,
"If he was In this condition and fell
Into the cellar on account of It, the
plaintiff deal ly could not recover.
While there was some slight evidence
to the contrary, sulllclent, perhaps, to
carry the cuse to the Jury, the weight of
the evidence was the other way. Jt was
In view of this that the questions sub
mitted to the Jury were formed as they
were. The fourth and fifth required
them to state whether or not Munley
was intoxicated, and if he was whether
it wus on that account that he fell Into
the cellar, und in case these were nega
tived they were called upon by the
sixth question to state brelfly how the
"The latter was designedly a very
searching Inquiry. Its purpose was to
compel the Jury If they found that Mun
ley was not Intoxicated agallist .the
plain weight of the evidence to give a
consistent account , of how it cume
about, and one that could be Justified
from the evidence, it was only by a
satisfactory response to It that a ver
dict against the city would be war
ranted. The answer which they make
certainly does not come up to this re
quirement. One Sided Answers.
"Having negatived the fourth and
fifth questions, they say to the sixth
nnd seventh: 'To the best of our knowl
edge this accident to Patrick Munley
was caused by the Imperfect condition
of the sidewalk and guard rail.'
"The difficulty with this Is that while
It may account for the accident from
the side of t'he city, It does not do so
from that of Munley, und thai is what
the question was solely directed to.
The purpose of it thus has been entirely
lost. If, then, we allow this
question to pass with no more specific
answer than we have, we surrender the
whole purpose of propounding ques
tions to the Jury and might as well
not have undertaken It. They might
Just as well have been permitted to
render n general verdict.
"But there Is another substantial rea
son why a new trial should, be gi anted.
The colloquy between the court and the
Jury when they returned for Instruc
tions leaves It In grave doubt whether
they properly considered the evidence
submitted to them, and the verdict
which they have rendered strongly con
firms this Idea. The alleged Intoxica
tion of Munley was, as we might say,
the turning point of rhe case, and It
was established by 'the testimony of
Olllcer Walsh, the only eye witness to
the accident, and only feebly called In
question by that of Saloonkeeper Jones.
There is enough In what we
have said to award a now trial, and the
rule to that effect Is, therefore, made
