JipIkp J. P. Kelly on Monday hand

(JenrKo V. i'otter mid others iiRiilntt
the Sui union ltnllvvny (omp.itiy. In
xvhleli the rule to shovx- cause why
Judgment shotid not be entered In fa

The plaintiffs In this ease, at the
time of the aeeldont complained of,
were eiiRiiKed in tin btttcherliiK busi
ness In the IioiourIi of Dunniore. On
the innrnlniT of the lflth of October,
ISM, Charles Potter, one of the plain
tiffs, was roIiik about with a team of
horses and a covered butcher wiiroii
setvliiR his cllslomei.t. and had in ca
sino to i ro.ts Ninth WnthliiRton axe

pany operated n Htreet inllway, Ji.iv

of the street. He xva.t drlviliR from the
easletl.x side towards tho xxesteily. mid

able to Ret across in safety, he pulled

hoise oft the trnek, but, althoiiRli he
succeeded In RettliiR tho horse's flout
foot out from between the rails, he
lid not Ret far iioiirIi nwny, and the
horse was struck In the tump, knoiked

The other hor xvas srxctely Injui'd.

and the palntlffs alleRliiR that the ac
cident xvas the result of the ncRllRence
of the defendant's servants. Instituted
this suit to nover for the damam.t
sustained. The case xvas submitted to
the Juiy subject to a point reserved,
viz., whether there xvas mi vldence In
the case upon vvhli h the plaintiffs xxere
entitled to recover. A verdict wat
rendered In favor of the plaintiffs, and
a mle was entered to tdiou iiuise w by
judgment should not be entered In fn
xor of the defendant notwithstanding
tin xi iillci.
Wo are nf opinion that there was
siilllclont evidence In the ease to sus
tain a Hurling that the defendant wat
guilty of negllgcm p. and theicfoie the
question of the contribllloiy negli
gence of Charles Potter, who had
I'liargp of the team at the time of the
accident, is the one now to be (onsld
crcd. This itittlon must bo disposed
of on the testimony of Charles Potter
alone, giving It the most favmnhli
couttriK tlon of vvhli h It is Misieptible
III the plaintiffs' fax or.
North Washington avenue runt prac
tically north and south, Itlchmoul east
and west. eioslng North Washington
axenue ai right angles. Theio is a
Moep grade on North Washington ave
nue towards Illchnioiit for a distance
of about two hundicd feet. The accident
happened In the rlajtline, and thcie
were no othfr teams or obstructions
of any kind In the vicinity at the time
of the lolllsion. Mr. Potter xvas about
to iross the track at the Inlet section
of the streets at the time hl.t hoise
was strut k, going in a westerly direc
tion. stai;ti:i tu cijoks tkack.
Aii oiding to hl.t testimony, giving
It the most favorable conttriictloii,
xv hen he got to a point twenty or thir
ty feet fiom the stieet car track, he
stoppetl his team and looked to see
whether a car was appmachlng fiom
the north, and looked down to spp If
one xvas approaching fiom the south,
ami seeing no cars In either dlreitlon,
he started on to uoss tlir track xvlth
hit hoises on a walk, nnd when his off
Iiuise got his right front foot inside the
i all ho heaid a whistle ami looked up
and saw the car approaching fiom over
the hill. He Immediately pulled to the
left, but did not succeed In Retting out
of the way, and the horse was struck
as already stated. After leaving the
point xvhere he stopped, twenty or thir
ty toet axxay troni the track, lie did not
look In the dliectlon from xvhleli the
I'm f nine until bis linrsn brnl one foot
upon the track; he could see the ap
proach of the car for a distance of
sixty-live paces, about 200 feet.
I nder these circumstances he xxns
guilty of contilbutory negligence, as
wo nndeistand the law. ns hilrl down
by our supreme court. In llhrlshm.iii
vs. Hatilsburg. etc.. Itallway Co., 1.10
Pa. istt. it is laid down as an unbt inllng
into to he oh.wrved nt all linns lltnt
one who is about to drive across a
stieet inllway track must look In both
directions for the approach of a mr
when he gets to tne etige or the traiK,
and Just before he crosses, Mr. Jut.
tlce Paxsnn, in delivering the opinion
of the court In that case, .tay.t:
"The rule tn ston. loolc rind lls.t..n .a
applliahlp In pait, at least, to miss
ing stieet railwa.x.t. a person driving
a x chicle has but to use his ees to
avoid such at cldents. There is tin
lunger, as In the case nf steam roads,
of stopping a horse at the veiy edge
of the track. When, therefore, n citi
zen attempts to cross such track. It is
his duty xvhen he teaches It to look in
both dlrei lions for an approaching or.
it very r.ucly, It It ever happens, that
the street It so obstructed that the
ar may not be pen as the citizen ap
proaches the track. It Is lilt duty to
look at that point, and If there Is any
obstruction, to listen, nnd his negle. t
to do so It negligence, per se. This It
an unbending rule to be ohserxed at all
times, nnd under all circumstances, in
the nse of steam roads, a question
sometimes arises ns to tho proper
place to stop, look mid listen, Wheie
there l.t a fair doubt upon this question
we Inve held that It unlit be sub
mitted to n Jury. Mut no such question
ailses In the r,Mc of city lallvvay.t. If
the citizen looks Just before he t rosses,
he avoldt all danger of accident."
Applying this principle tn the pret.
ent case the plaintiff, Charles Pntti-i-,
liil not take such piccnutlnn jiitt bo
fore be attempted to cioss at the law
requlres, and under the authnrltv
above cited he xvas guilty of tu gllg. nee
Viv s If the car xvas 200 feet away
from him xvhen his hoi so had but one
font over the rail, there could lie no
qupBtlon but that he could have pulled
back In time to avoid being strut k, un
less theio wan something mutual to

hold his xx agon or something unusual
on the part ot tho horse, of xvhleli there
Is nothing In the testimony. The prin
ciple laid down In Carroll vn. It. It. Co.,
'i W N. C. .11:1, and followed In many
subsequent caset, It seems to ut xxotild
prevent the plaintiff from recoveilOR
under the clrcllliiHtanccrt as detailed by
Tin only leasonnble Inference, how
evt r. to draw lroin his testimony Is
that after lie stopped sump distance
uw.iy fiom the tracks and looked In
both directions' for tin approach of n
car. and seeing none, lit pineeedetl to
Irlvo nirost xvlthout any further ef
fort to set If any car was coming
from the north, nnd xvhen he heard the
whistle and looked up. the car xvas so
closely upon him hl.t horse was struck
befoie In iouIiI get out nf the xxay.
t'litler such circumstances the law
holda him guilty of contributory negli
gence. And now, August 12, 1001, the rule
to show cailte why Judgment should
not be entered In favor of the defend
on nnn obstante veiodlelo is madn absolute.
