the tise of filing a bill of exceptiona, but on « ay 19. 19S0, 
the aittiMUS was again etayed for another thirty d&ya. This did

MR. JUoTICB BARWS BSLIVTWSD THE OPINIOK CS" THS COUnT. 



On MajT 3, 19S1« ve struck the bill of «xceptiQna from 
the record in the ahore entitled cause, it thon appearing there- 
frOB that said hill had not heen filed within the tine allowed 
therefor, and aa the errors asRigned rested entirely on the 
stricken portion of the record, the Judgment of conviction vii?.b 
affirmed* Subsequently plaintiff m error sugfrested a diminution 
of the record, claiming thut a true state thereof would disclose 
as order of court extending the time for filing the bill of 
exceptions beyond the time within which it was filed. Leare was 
then given to supply the alleged onisaion and the Judgment of 
affirmanoe was Taeatec] and a rehearing Allowed, The record oon- 
taining said order is now before us end the People hare again 
BOTed to strike the bill of exceptions on the ground that the 
recor-i still fails to disclose Jurisdiction of the court to 
sign said bill of exceptions. 

After the rendition of our decision so set aside, the 
trial court, ae appears from the supplemental re fiord, entered an 
order extending the time for filing the bill of exceptions nuyoc 
pro tunc es of the date the order wab actually made. It recites 
th-it the clerk ^ t the time of the motion for such extension made 
a minute of the tame and of its allowance in a book of the pro- 
ceedings of the court regularly kept by him from which he made 
his entries into the Journal, and that through misprision the

entire entry in the day 1>ook showing such extension wb not fully 
transcribed by hl« into the Journal, end that thereupon the 
record was corrected so ea to speak the truth. There could he 
BO question that suoh meDoranda made an*) kept by the clerk in 
the due course of Judicial proceedings wbs nufflcient to authorize 
the nunc pro tunc order, Acoordingly the People's pending motion 
to strike the >)ill of exceptions will be denied. 

The indictaent w^a one for whj-t is designated by the 
statute as contributing to the delinquency of children* The 
felony count was waived and the cause sulmitted to the court on 
a Jury waiTer. The misdeBoaner count ch-^i^ed defendant with 
knowingly, unlawfully and wilfully doing r-ertain acts directly 
tending to render one Oretchen -vngelbreoht under the age of 18 
years, delinquent. The court found defendant guilty and imposed 
the sentence of six Konths in the houee of eorrcction* 

The only direct evidence of the s'Ct oosplained of was 
given by the girl who wns of the age of 16 years. Her te^^tiaiony 
in substance wan that wnile she wpe Bitting on a settee besids 
defendant with a little girl in h(=>r lap di^f endaat drew her hand 
evwr under his overcoat tew?ird his trousers, which she observed 
wei*e partially unbuttdned, and that sha withdrew her hand. Ha 
claimed th)».t he took hold of her hand playfully because he 
supposed she had picked up a pencil he had dropped which was 
used in a game they and another person were then plnying. After 
the pencil was dropped the other person stepped into an adjoining 
rooB to get another pencil, and wa.s apptvrently absent only a 
minute or two. The . et complained of took place in his brief 
absence. Thn room was a parlor of a hotel, conducted by the 
girl** father, at which all the p rties lived. Defendant denied 
the intent imputed to him, giving the act an innocent inter- 
protatien, and there was strong evidence of his reputation for

Ihc girl nede no onrnpleint or report of the sot for 
tve diLys, and said she "thought nothing of it,** and did not apeak 
of it until sh« heard another girl, Betty Rhode, tell her exper- 
ience vith defendant and aay that he "trieri to put her hand down 
there.* Betty 'hede did net testify. Ho direct evidence of her 

experience waa giren. It was br»>ught into the caae only by hear- 

evidence o 
•ay/ On that groiuid a motlnn was aiade at the close of the oaae 

to strike such teetiaony fron: the record, hut the court refaaed 
■o to do on the ground that objection was not mscie to it when 
offered; and the People urge here in ^.nawer to the aosigned error 
that an objection to teutinony vill not be considered in this 
cvrt for the first time. The aacsigned error, however, does not 
rest on the overruling of an objection, but upon refusal of the 
court to strike out inadaiesible evidence which, fron its rulings 
and reaarks evidently entered into its consideration of the 
question of guilt. The court is not justified in retaining in 
the record ineoapetent testimony, even though it was not objected 
to, where a motion is made in due time to have it excluded from 
the court's consideration. And where it appears that inadmissible 
evidenoe was given weight and consideration by the cnurt in re Ach- 
ing its findings, as in the ease at bar, the refusal to strike it 
out is fatal error, for which the judgment must be reversed. 

It is contended by plaintiff in error that the delinquency 
of the gitl is an essential element of the crime under the statute, 
and as it was admit t<^c! that she was not a delinquent there could be 
no oonvlo tion, and reference is made to two decisions in this cnirt 
•0 construing a former statute en this subject. But that statute 
was repealed by the act under which the indictment was returned. 
That act now in force was apparently pasaed to remove the grounds 

for those decisions and to render » person originally liable for

accuse and, "by means of false and faljricated testimony, to procurs 
plaintiff to be indicated and conrlcted of conspiracy and of 
subornation of perjury; that said Indictments were to be returned 
against plaintiff upon the fabricated and perjured testimony of 
■aid Frank; that the defendant Hoyne during said times was, and 
is now, the acting state's attorney of Cook County, and that the 
defendant Berger was, and is now, an assistauit state's attorney of 
said county; that after the defendant Frank had been paroled from 
the penitentiary, he was, by Hoyne and Berger^ "coerced, intimidated, 
cajoled and corrupted to give his fabricated and perjured testimony" 
against the plaintiff to the grand Jury of Cook County at the 
February and March terms, 1916, thereof; that Hoyne and Berger con- 
spired to falsely accuse the plaintiff, and thereby oppress and 
wholly ruin him and destroy his reputation and law practice, and tt 
that end presented a petition to the Chicago Bar Association seeking, 
ex parte and without notice to plaintiff, to institute disbarment 
proceedings against said plaintiff, which petition they afterwards 
abandoned; that afterwards Hoyne and Berger, cmspiring as aforesaid, 
presented, ex parte , a similar petition to the Supreme Court of 
Illinois, whioh petition they afterwards abandoned; that Hoyne and 
Berger afterwards knowingly permitted and eaused the said proceed* 
Inge taken before the grand Juries to be published in diTers of the 
newspapers of Chicago and elsewhere, thereby greatly injuring plain- 
tiff; and that, by means of the premises plaintiff has been greatly 
injured in his credit and reputation as a practicing lawyer, and 
otherwise greatly injured, to his great damage, etc* 

In their demurrer to said original count, Hoyne and 
Berger, as cause for demurrer, showed (l) that, it appearing from 
said count that at the times mentioned said Hoyne was staters 
attorney of said county, and said Berger was an assistant state** 
attorney thereof, the acts complained of were performed as Judicial 









fcb:: ; no^H.so'fi

officers and were privileged; and (2) that three separate and 
distinct acts are cnnplained of in said cnunt and made the basis 
of the cause of action, vizo (a) the act of procuring false 
testimony to he given before the grand jury, (b) the presentation 
by said defendants of a petition to the Chicago Bar Association 
whereby they sought the disbarment of plaintiff, and (c) the 
presentation of a petition to the Supreme Court of Illinois where- 
by said defendants sought to institute disbament proceedings 
against plaintiff, and that, therefore, the count is double. 

In the printed brief here filed by counsel for plaintiff 
no arguments are made that said original cnunt is sufficient in 
law, but the arguments seemingly have reference to the five 
additional counts. While we might be Justified in treating said 
original count as having been abandoned, we will say that, in 
our opinion, the count is bad on general demurrer because it 
sufficiently appears therefrom that the acts of Hoyne and Berger 
complained of, even if done maliciously and without probable cause, 
were performed as judicial of ''leers and are therefore privileged. 
(32 Cyc, 717; Griffith v. Slinkard , 146 Ind., 117, 121; Parker v. 
Huntington, 2 Gray (Mass.) 124.) Furthermore, we think the count 
is bad on special demurrer as being double « 

In none of the five additional counts is there any 
allegation to the effect that, at the time of the connnlttlng of 
the grievances complained of, Hoyne and Berger were respectively 
state's attorney and assistant state's attorney of said county. 
The allegations are apparently against them in their individual 
capacltleso In all of said five additional counts it is charged 
that all three of the defendants maliciously, fraudulently and 
Illegally, and without any reasonable or probable cause therefor, 
"conspired" to injure plaintiff. 

In the first additional count it is averred in substance

In this e&M the plaintiff helew sued the defendant to 
raeoTer |674.X3 upon an account atatod for aonoy adranoed by th« 
plaintiff. 

7h« defandant in his affidaTlt of ■orlto denied that 
the account had boen stated, thet the »aeunt clained or any part 
of it vas due, and farther* set up thet the plaintiff *8 claia was 
based on a geabling transaction and therefore Toid. The case vae 
tried by the court without a S^ry* It had be«n begun by attaeh* 
ncnt. Ihe attaehsent was disaelTed» bat judgment was entered 
upon the merits ttr the amount of the plaintiff's clain. 

The eottrt found the facts to be "that on July 25, 1919, 
plaintiff and defendant ordered Koyes Jt Jnckson, brokers in cotton, 
in the City of Chiosgo. to purohaee on the Hew York cotton exchanse, 
end to charge to plaintiff's account, tm option to buy one hundred 
bales of cotton. That neither plaintiff nor defendant ever intend- 
ed to exereise said option » but intended to resell before sMtarity 
and to settle on the differenoe in the ■arleet price at which pur- 
ohased and et whieh sold. That plaintiff and dsfendant were speeu- 
latins upon the rise and fall of the market price of cotton; that 
at the time of entering into said transaction, plaintiff and defend* 
ant agreed to share profits and losses equally; that ae a result 
of said tranmciction a lose of 11,348.26 vne sustained, whieh plain- 
tiff paid."

Netwithvtnndlng this finding as to th« facts the court 
h«ld as a propeaition of law that the tranaaetlon did not ottM 
vithln the inhibition of the 8ta1»te; that *the omalderation 
thereof vaa the adjustment of suoh lose hetveen the plaintiff 
and defendant;" and the court held *k8 a natter of lav suoh eono 
aider!?tioa ie a legal eonsideration*** 

Zf in accept tlu» facta ss f «iund %y the oeurt «• think 
this proposition of law was clearly erroneous as np piled thereto. 
See aoos. 130 and 1?1, chap* 36» Criminal Code* 

Defendant in error has not appeared in this court t hut 
we hare examined the oTidence carefully to aseertain if the find- 
ing of fact is Justified. This exainineition diBolosee that the pur- 
chase was not an "option" to buy cotton, but on the contrary* that 
plaintiff had an account with Noyes Is Jaek8en» who were senbers 
of the fiew york stock exehango; that plaintiff aiade purchases of 
ootton through these brokers on an agreeaent with defendant that 
he and defendant would share the profits or losses resultiagt 
equally. 

The evidenee for plaintiff shows only the ordinary 
transaction in Baking such a purchase. 

The defendixnt*s sTidenoe tending to sustain his pl«a 
of an illegal transection is to the effect that they were "speeu- 
lating on the market. * He says: "The latter part of J^ly 1 told 
Harrison th«t we were both foolish to speculate; thut 1 hsd lost 
about #14«000 the last year. • * X had newer dealt In it before; 
cotton was advancing, it was about 34 cts. X'r. Harrison said it 
was llksly to go to 60 cts. a point •* 

In order to Invalidate a contract under tha statttto 
It must be proved that neither of the parties intended to deliver 
the goods, and that both had the Intention at the time of making

Alfons* ^asiulis* the plaintiff t>«loiv and d«f«nd«nt 
In «rror here, brought a suit m aitao.'iment again at ijOBiinlok 
BudTitia claiaiBi^ that the eata of S500 was dluf^ to iiim frrai the 
defendant as cotaqpensation for {^rocurio^ a purotiiiner for certain 
reM estate oimed hy the aef emiej^t, iieveraX statutory grounds 
for attHohaaent were alleged, 'i'he irrit of attae'<ai«»nt issued and 
vas served on the defendant and also en one Auguatus pocua as 
garnishee. 7he cause was tried "by the court without a Jury. 
The court fo«iX)d the iflsuea agninwt the plaintiff on ttie attach' 
reent but in f»»vor of the plaintiff on the nerita of the ease »n4 
assessed plisintiff 'a daiaages in the auia of *>S<JO, for ^nrhich antouBt 
Judf»«it was entered aigeiniit ths defendant. The only asaigament 
argued i» thnt the Judgment is ai^ainat the annifeot weight of the 
eridenoe. 

The plaintiff testified that he h'^d known defendant 
about two mentiis at the time or the tran»aotion. The defendant 
told hiro he wished tc aell the property invol-ved and that if he, 
plaintiff, would get a custoaer for uim defendant would pay hia 
$bQ{', lie further testified that one ..jeryila wits present at that 
time, »nicn was in the aorning of the day that plaintiff brought 
I ecus, the prospective purchaser, t.i' the pl^cs, «nd that plain- 
tiff told defimdant he had a purchaser for the property but did 
BOi introduce the customer to plaintiff. The plaintiff also 
testified that in a aeoond oenyersation the defendant promlseA 



hi* ^50C if hf» would brinj- s pnrehaser for the property and that 
GU8 l^oouB waa preauit at that tiaae. Th« plaintiff had Just retjti?d 
a salccn in tiie building in queation from dafendara, 

lartin .i«rvila» vidao t» so ovmed a saloon nearby, tea- 
tified ti:i«t he waa present and heard defendant aay^ "'acroe of you 
fellows oould broufeJit a custcaaer on Uiat property* 1 will feiva 
you #5o«;.« That ia all he aaid." 

I'OOua taatified that hp, h-.d known the plaintiff for 
about two montha; that plaintiff tcld him the j Iftoe he, the 
plaintiff, ran as his «alocn waa for sale; tunt plaintiff went 
upataire »nd <;cot the owner and introduced the o^«ner tc i-tra, the 
witnesa; that plaintiff ahowed hiia all around the building and 
naked hia $2l»CC0 for vhe rl?'ce; th«t ^itneaa off erad 4X8,000, but 
plaintiff aaid that waa toe cheap and wallred out. He aaya, •Then 
we ciake little by little. | give him ei^iitean thousand nnd the» 
he ccffle down to twenty thousand and we make a deal for nineteen 
thousand. '>'<fe eloea up the deal on the first of 'eptoraber. I 
give hiui so Bttch deposit. » » •» He further aaya he eUd not 
knew ^r« iMdvitia at the time and did not know Mr, ^^aslulis* 

Julia ic»c», another tenant cf defendant, t«atifie» 
she waa present and heard def^ioant say to plaintif f ," Uf you 
please bring back this man kv. looua, wirxu ie gointi to buy ay 
property, I will aell to hi«.» i.x, iaaiulia aaya, »¥©u know I 
aa so busy .1 have no tijae to go.' He saya, ♦wh«t do you care 
of that, 1 giro you ^500 in eommissien if you orin^- Vtim br^ok.** 

The defendant teetified that he hr.d sold th^ saloon 
to liaalulls for |20C, that he then told K^aslulis that he wanted 
#ao,000 for the whole property, but would let hira hare it for 
$500 leas, but that he nerer offered a commission to wnybody and 
never offered plaintiff a oosimlasion, but did offer ta aall it to 
hia for fSoc leaa than twenty thousand whioh waa his prlee. 



Tlie teofciraony of i^oouii is somewhAt disoredltAd by an 

affld«Tit vtrhicii he mad* just pricr tc the closing of th<? cl«al in 

» 
which h« atetes tiiat no pfsrty was in any way reaponaible for the 

Bale »f the preuilsee to hin and that hfi had nerer spoken to 

plaintiff about the sale of the premises before th« contract of 

•ale was entered Into. 

Several other witnesses Hi so testified regarding 
stateroents HiJide by focus Thioh are inconsistent with his sworn 
testimony. 

The witnesses on both sidta were not entirely fatcdliar 
with the Kngliah lanj^ittai^e And this m^kee the tasic of nn appellate 
court in determining where the preponderance of the eridence lies 
acre than ordinarily difficult, Jn «ucii r oase the general rule 
in favor of the firji!iing& of tlie tri»l 4,eurt w/iieh saw and hoanjl 
the witnesses ie peculiarly appropriate, the burden of proof was 
upon the plaintiff, there i a h shejrp conflict in the evidence, 
focus is certainly discredited* but on the ether hand there are 
eirouastnnces tending to corroborate plrtintiff and discredit the 
testinony of defendant. The plaintiff was the only person that 
defendant can certainly remember havmg tcld tJrmt the property was 
for sale, and a preponaerance of the evldwnce indicates tioat leeus 
learned this f^ot froa rasiulis, 

tinder all the cire»»Bistninoes we ptp net f»ble to say aa 
in BersKisn v, F^ 3. B. & I,. Assn ., 169 ill, App. 32©, nnd other 
eases on which appellant relies, that the evidence does not es- 
tablish plaintiff's cffsa by a preponderance.

^ly 18» 1918, defendant In error began a suit in

ration was filed on the ntme day and atta<^ed thereto was s 
copy of the aoenunt sued en. and an affidarit of nterite setting 
up the nature of plaintiff's clain, and alleging that there wae 
due to the plaintiff fron the defendnnt, aifter allowing all Just 
credits. $1,018. laly 51at thereafter, the appearanee of plaln> 
tiff in error w«b entered by its attorneys, and on Auguet first 
the plea of ntin ssstmpsit was filed. So affidarit of merits 
vas atts^ed ae required hy see* S5 of the Practice Act, Hard's 
RoTised Statutes, 1919, chap. IIC, p. 22Bb, Kay S*, 1919, th»re» 
after, on notion of the « ttorney for plaintiff "default of said 
defendant is entered for failure to file its &ffidn:v-it «€ sierits 
vith its said plea, and Judgment is entered for the plaintiff and 
against the said defendant in the sun of $1«018«0C.« 

JUly 3, 1919, the defendejit aade a motion to raoate this 
judgment, and In support thereof filed certain pffidarits in which

July 16, 1919, the notion to raeato tho order of default 
and Judcmeat wm denied *y the c«>ttrt. Mguet 9th thereafter, the 
plaintiff in open court &,clmowledged pajnent in full of all dmagen 
and eeeta, and it vae ordered that the Judgnent he satisfied in 
full of record. 

Plaintiff in error arguee, first, that it was orror to 

assess daBases with plea on file, and second, that it vns error to 

assess damaKes without notice to the defendant, the appearance of 

the defendant being en file. The firet point raised has heen 

decided contrary to the contention of plaintiff in error in Craier 

▼• Ill« Coa. Ken's ass|>,« .« 260 111. 516* whsre the eourt discussing 

this euhject eaid: 

"Counsel call attention to the fact that there 
was sfTcnteen pleae and the order was in the singular, 
hut it was not necessary to strike the ploas front the

e«SBon.'* 

In the same ease Brajdwood ▼. «eiller « 69 111. €0€ is quoted with

the plea fron the files for want of such affidarit,* 

And in the aore recent esse of ^irestono t, Qinebera . 285 111. 1S3, 

tho court says: 

"Where an affidavit of aerits is insufficient it 
is proper praetiee lo strike it froa the files, and the

and is eoamoa.*

IR. JUSTICE MAICKE^TT DELIVSSKD THS OPIKIOK 0? THS COURT. 

Tke plaintiff l>elow sued for personal injuries claimed 
to hare been sustained l»y her on Magr 29, 1917. Her statement 
of clain alleged that on that date she vas walking across Mich- 
igan arenae at its intersection with 31st street; that the 
defendant was then and there driving and operating an autonobile 
along Michiewj avenue in a southerly direction; that the plain- 
tiff WPS proceeding with due care, end defendant disregarding his 
duty negligently and carelessly drove and operated the automobiles 
and by reason thereof ran it against the plaintiff inj^uring hero 
In another part of the statement it was alleged that defendant's 
carelesenees consisted in (Irix^ing the autcsioblle at Ci dangerous 
rate of speed thereby inj^urlng plaintiff. The affidavit of 
merits denies the si legations of negligence and denies that plain- 
tiff was in thfS exercise of due oare. The ease wae t-ried by a 
jury which brought in a verdict for plaintiff in the sum of $750 
upon idiich the court entered judgment* 

It is argued by api^llant that the verdict is manifestly 
■gainet the weight of the evideaoe in the ease and this ie ths 
only point nececHirxy to consider. 

Two witnesses, apparently dielntercated, tentified that 
as plaintiff w> s orosBlng Klchigan nveme at the intersection 
thereof with Slet street .lef endant, disregerding signals on the 
poet in the middle of the street to slow up,ran his automobile

at a tpsed of 36 niles an h«ur etr Iking the plaintiff vho was than 
orosBing the etreet at th&t place. 

The defendant testified that he hkb driring at a speed 
of only IS Bilee >!i hour and says that his nachine ran only about 
25 feet after stril^ing plaintiff before it stopped. The plain* 
tiff*s witnesses testified that the machine ran about 100 feet 
before etepping. Appellant points out the apparent inconsistencies 
in the testiaony of the witnesses for plaintiff, and says the facts 
as related by them indicfl;%e that the machine was not moTing at the 
•peed claimed. Probably it was net, and the teBtimeny of theso 
witnesses to that effect must be regarded simply as their estimates* 
Bat defendant adciits that he was driTing at this crossing at a speeA 
of 15 Biles an hour and, m.^ think, on his own testimony it was a 
question for the Jury iidiether he was guilty of negligence tending 
to eaase plaintiff ^s injuries* 

We hare examined the facts as it is our duty to do, but 
we do not find anything in this record whieh would Justify a 
rerersal of the Judgment, and it will therefore be affirmed*

Appelloe as adninistrator of the eatate of yarie Budiioraky, 
doce»ued, brnught suit against appellanto as oimerii of an autamelsilc 
and ae enmmon earriors nf pasaengera for hire, to recover for duaagea 
on the ground nf tt»g negligent operation of aaid autoaiobile «hile de* 
ceMaed vaa a pasaenger therein, whereby it collided with a atreet ear, 
eauaing her death* 

While the drirer of the &ut<»Bebile testified to the effeet 
that he lost control nf it thrnugh sudden dOTelopnent of a defect in 
the atoering gear, the OTldenee was such that the Jury night mil 
find yiat the accident was the result of his negligence in turning, 
withmit the exerciBe nf ordinery enre for the safety of his pasaon- 
gers> into the track of the atre^^t oar with .hioh it collided, irtien 
it vme 00 near as to render the collision aMoft unsToideble . 

The autOKobile was of tho limsuaino type and hired to takt 
six woBon, including the deoeased, to a funeral. On the return froa 
the offinetery they stopped at a restaurant for lunch. It wns while 
driving frOBi there on a north and anuth stroet, on which were dnuhit 
tracks of a street ear line, that the accident took place. The road 
was unpaTed except between the street ear tracks and for abnut four 
to six inches beyond he outside rails. The autnnobile was going 



-2- 



south ea the westerly oar traeks, and tbo Btro«t ear north on the 

easterly traoks. The eTldence tended to show that Just before the 

auteaoblle orertnok & wagon, also going south on the vesterly 

I'rSJn 
tracks. It turn«d/the westerly to th© easterly track when within 

50 to lOr feet of the street ear that was moTing at IS to 1& vile* 

an hour, and that it continued forward on the latter track and 

passed by the wagon before the oollislen took place. At the tine 

of collision the wagon was about ^5 feet away. If the Jury did 

B«t belicTe the drirer^s testinnny of a defeot in the steering 

gear« then the oircunstanoee disclosed by the evldenoe were such 

as to clearly indicate negligence on his part. 

For reversal it is urged that there was a fatal yarlance 
between the declaration and the evidence, th^t there w&a no proof 
of the Joint ownership or control of the autonobile, and that there 
was error in the adaission of evidence. 

!• The C2*'>und of variance is based upon two allegations 
of the deelsrgLtien, to the effect that defendants were cramon 
carriers of passengers for hire, and that it was their duty to 
carry the pliintiff'e intestate safely and without injury, and ttp<m 
proof that defendants were private carriers* 

Yith respect to this contention it it eneuf^ to say that 
the allegation with regard to duty is a mere conclusion of law, 
irtiich, though it does not haxmonise vvith the facts relied en as a 
breach of duty, does not render the declaration insufficient to 
sustain the Jud^Bont* if it contains* as we think it dees, facts 
sufficient to raise the duty of which a breach is alleged. {£, & 
A* Sl« ££• ▼• t-lausen. 173 111. 10( .) The duty, if any exists, 
nnist arise fresi the facts stated. (How dtaunten Coal '"o . v. 
Fr2EUa» 28* Ili« '-B*.) AS was said in Calkins v. 3?orth. 215 III. 
78: 



«9» 



•If the f»eta alleged warrant the railef -nd »y» 
supported by thee.Tldenc*. then the Sere err nne^ bo on 

fhi i ♦r* <'3:*''*"^<* ""'^<'^ the fact, would not preclude 
the granting Of the relief, or f ra J within tee Ejection 
-f rariance betireen th. allegations and the proof .- 

Disregarding suoh conclusion of law as to appellants* 
duty as surplusage, ^s we smy, and also the word "cawson- in re- 
ferrlng to ths oarrior. as «ot essential, the other allegations 
•howin^. and eridonco tending to «hnw. negligence and a hreaeh 
of duty, whether the carrier w.s a prirate or oo»moa carrier, it 
was unnecessary to proTO saeh aXleg«tionB. and, therefore, i.- 
»»teriBl if the eTidence disproved them. ( Postal gel. Jahle .Co. 
T. ijltes, 226 111. 349. 36S.) It has heen repeatedly held in 
personal injury cases that it is not neoes«ary to proye isimateriel 
allegntions, and that in such otions it is sufficient if a party 
prore enough of his declar. tion to make na% a crso. f geet at. Lnoie 
Con. ay. Co . ▼. Altgen,, UO in. ai3.) a. the rule that proof must 
correspond with allegation does not apply where the alleg tion may 
he stricken out as surplusage without impairing or chani?in^ the 
legal effect of the declaration . we think the contention «8 to 
Tarianoe is not well founded. As said in ate amy ▼. Hejdy, , 138 
111. 119: 

'•*hon the transaction nut of which the onatroiersv 
arises is the a.^^e vtH^ the substantial o&u«e of dawiges 
is the seme, the r^rianee is regarded as lawaterialand 
is overlooked.* 

2. One of the pesaengers, fiagdalena Budilovsky, testified 

thet "as soon as we got the autoBohUe hs (the driver) started to 

g» very fust," and added; -then 1 said to hla, •den»t drive so 

f«st,»« and that the d»eeb«od "also kind of turned to him and aeid 

DonH drive so fast. Ynu e«m drive us through the parks and tten 

take us ho»e.»" Objection weo eiade to e^ch of these BtoteAonts, and 

the court overruled motions to strike the« out. The evidence tended 

to show thnt theoe atatments were jjiade Juftt after the automobile 

left the restaarant. How far that restMtraitt was trm the plaee

said to the drlTer, "Don*t run ao fu»t n-. I didnH aiake sy will

dnngernus rake of apeed a it turned fron one tr^ek into the other, 
aa4 ita ^dslisslon and the failure to strike it f^ut eonstltuts, in 
our Jttd(pBont, roTersible error. 

3, In Tiew of the neo-eseity of reTersing the jud/cment 
and remanding the eauao for a now triel on the ground stated, it 
is unnecessary to consider at length whether the etridcnee warranted 
the werdiot against both defendants. Thsro w»s an attempt to show 
their Joint ownership and control of the automobile in lueation. 
It is extremely doubtful whether the eTidonee so showed. The 
4ofondaata Antoa and Joseph Linhart were fnther and sen rospeotl*

Tely. The fomer wt s an undertaker ?nd the latter worked with 
hlB in the Imsinesa of cnnduoting funerals. It wse not disputed 
that Joseph Linhart bought and paid for the RUtomobile, that he 
applied for and obtained in his awn name a state lioenee there- 
fnr for the- year 1918, when the jiccident took place, that he ob- 
tained frOB the City of Chicago a limited Hcen :e, or permit, to 
use said eutonobile for the sirae ye>r for carrying persflns for 
hire, and paid therefor, and that he hired Uni driver in (faeetion 
end paid him his wages. The drlirer tertified, too, th^^t he never 
did any work for Anton Linhart, ^nd there was no direct proof 
that Anton hid anything whatever to do with the letting or the 
ownership or control of the autmaobile in ouestion. The only 
evidence tending to show his connection therewith wi^is the existence 
«f the sign "Linhart & Lion* at his plnoe of business , frmt which 
the sutomobile wms let, » hut not by \nton, - and that Joseph was 
permitted to draw checks in the name '^f Anton Linhart by himself on 
the bank in which Anton kept an account in his own name, and th«it 
the driver of the autrnobile in question vna sometimes paid his 
wages through checks so drawn by Joseph. There was no attempt to 
prove a co-partnerahip and eh»ring of profits and losses in the 
biiBinese conducted by Anton Linhart, or in the use of the ^itomnbile 
in questien, or th^t the bank Hccmint w^s in fMCt used in connection 
with Kny pfttrtnership transections. Joseph's U!:-e of the bank accntnt 
was not incnnsietent with a mere convenience Accorded to him by his 
father. Under the statute neithf^r of the defendants enuld testify. 
The best evidence of their co-partnership w(«e net resorted to. 
Plaintiff called neither of thOT te testify, nor for any books or 
doeumentSf except certain checks, thit might throw light on the 
question of ownership and cnntrel of the oattttobilo or limousine 
in (paestion.

well «a the aliegfttien, "without n vritten lieen»e therefor," 
is essential to a fall statement of mh^t const itutee a violation

It is apparent, therefore, that the j\id«iient of een*

that class of weapons vheae possession is absolutely prohibited; 
(2) bee«ttt8« if it b« included in the second elnse of weepona nen* 
tiened in seatiea 1, the inforeii tion fails to allege the re-

Aeeordiagly the Judipseat is roTersed.

therefore, no bill of exceptions to be etrieken. 

the transeripts iaproperly recite aotiens, support-

It would have been of no arail to appellant had said

they were made at terms subsequent to that at which the Judgment 
was entered » and that no motion was made whereby the court 
preserved Jurisdiction to those terms* 

Vhile said motions and affidavits might on motion 
therefor be properly expunged from the record such a motion 
is unnecessary as they cannot in any event be considered. 
As there is nothing in the conmon law record upon which the

The oireuTHStonOfo under which the foregoing ontraot w»s 
•attred into were »o follows: June 22, 190€, the <^«fpndnnt, -^alph 
V* Shankland, as conplsinant, filed his l:)ill for diveroo «g»inat 
the plaintiff, Juetino i^. tthankland. On the SOth day of that month 
(eight days after the filing of the bill) a deeree was enterod find- 
ing thot the d<!f fnd&nt on the f iret day of May, 19C4, wilfully de- 
•orted eomplainunt, and it was adjudged that the narriags between 
thim should bo diseolTed* The deorer «lso proTl^xd that the oustody 
and control of the son^ ^^alph H« i.h«nklBnd» who was then a l&d bo* 
twoen ten and eleyen years of ago, ehnuld bo glToa to the aether 
"until the further order of eourt, and that the eooiplainsat hare the 
right to Tisit and have the eompanionahip of said child at say proper 
tlao and as frequently os he nay desire.* 

The hearing on the bill w&» had in court on Juae ^'•th. 
While the eentraet purports to haTo boon enterod oa the day the 
dlToroo «&s o>>taiaed, it wns, in foot, aaiie prior to that tiao« 

The hueband and wife had been 1 It lag apart for aore than 
two years and there is nothing in the record to iadieate other 
than that the dlToroo wue entirely Justified upon the graunds upon 
lAieh it was granted. The oontraet is not aentioned in the deeree. 
It was aet at aay tiao subsiitted to the eourt. It wae exeeated ia

by an attomey* lir. uhuey. ;j1i« sl^ed th« eeatrnct In his 
of fie*. Kr. ihanklnnd was also represented by i^n sttorrMy, 
Mr. OppenhelK. Tliese attorneys c'^nflult•d ab^t the eontraet 
and agreed upon its tenns* 

The parties wi^ their jatterneye met in eonfereaee 
on June SOUi or Plat ia»t prior te the filing of the bill. The 
• ttemey for Hr. ;>hanklaiid testified "Thnt contract «»s prepared 
during this ennferene* by Kr. ;:>faney. He was the one «ho did 
ment of it; have no independent reoallectien «b to whether tlM 
eontraet was signed at th^^t time, t^y iwpreaoion is thet it vae 
signed preTieuB te the ttntry of the deeree in the divoroe suit, 
think Mr. ^huey sign«^d it prohebly before X filnd th» bill, and 
that I held it for s fev days until thk decree was granted or 
until Mr. :;hu«y deeired it to be d^lirered to him. I think I 
held the e crow, as he eolled it* t^r a few days, how irsny days, 
Z eottld not aay." 

The sole question to be deeided is whether tfaia eon> 

traetttkUB executed and delivered is void as egeinet the ^blie 

polioy of this >>tate. vVhateTsr the policy of eth«r stntes may 

be it is settled in XlLlaois that the enurts will carefully 

scrutinise suOh eeatr; cts, and V.»t if the effect of the contract 

is to ctimulate diveree it is void. In ajlberaohmidt t. ailber « 

setBitdt . 11 ' 111. App., 69, this cnirt said: 

•It appeared by the testimony of appellee's solicitor 
in the divorce suit, erilled hs a witness by apnellMit, that 
the agreement wks made pending the suit and prior to tho 
decree, a learned nuthor, ooimnenting on aurh agreements 
saye 'But if the eontrnct is of a sort to stimulate the 
divorce, to diBcnurage any defens«i| or in «ny wpy to impo£>e 
upon thr eourt, it will be void. »or example it *ill be 
void if 80 frmmed as to have effect only on condition th-a 
a divorce is granted with^t alimony. «enoe prsotlcally, 
and almost and somotime quite es a natter of law, an agree- 
ment of this sort should be laid before the judge, iriiea to

nursad defendant's wife while she was so suffering, ea «r«lX as 
two of his children. 

The dispute between the parties relates to the oc:ib«> 
peneation te be paid plaintiff for suoh serrices. Pefendant in- 
sists that the aRrewent was to pay a rwaeonatole price for plein- 
tlff*o serrtees, while plaintiff ln«i3t» th»t ahio ^m to be paid 
fire dollars a day therefor. riefi«ndant paid plaintiff one hundred 
dollars. Insisting that that mm wae « rftsscnable price for the 
s*rTle*B rendered. The Jury returned n rerdiet awarding rlelntiff 
ecmrpnoation at the rate of fiTe dollars a day, 

^e think the verdlot is eesily reeonoilnble with the 
contentirn thnt fire doll ere «i day is but a reasonable price for

These words nre o»«anin^lesa in h oo^Ti^-.on l".w "otlpn and

are found In replioations to answers in equity pleading. ThsB fel-

likewise setfi up as c d»f«c3« the diBOtmtlnuaBce by plaintllf ef 
the publioation of its nowspnpw April 28, 1916, which he ol»iB«4

ther« WB« nn aoocrd fsad siitlvfnotion between the partiea after 
plaintiff ceased publication ©f th«» Chicago Korald, 

In plPlBtlJf 'e »t»t*t!!flnt of account it aet forth 
«Vfry lt«m of Its clfj-m, Rn-i the ccurt held - corraotly, we think - 
that all the iteas ef euch aacount net sreolf IcrU ' deniod by de- 
fendant in his affiaavlt of nwrita stood adn^itted; so that in th« 
first instance plaintiff nas only required to mate proof ef the 
it«B8 disputed in the affidavit of defense; and tha court further 
h«»ld that a9 tc suoli itc»as a priag f&eie case v&» siade out. 

llaintiff made proof of all tiic items disputed in de* 
fendftnt*8 affidavit of defentiS. 

In January, I91t, defendant save ; laintiff a cheek for 
$716,49, whleh paid for all of the itesa in the April, 1917, ee- 
count. Defendant offered in mridenoe a full pnga fscsinile of the 
adYMrtisement ef v^ril 8, 1917, aeroee the face of ^l.ich was written, 
"Ce»pHm«r,t.s of the Oiioago Herald," and Insisted that the adver- 
tisesnent was oo«plia'f;nt*iry »nd that there should b«».Te been no ctvarge 
Bade thfrefer. There was nc proof pis to who !t)»»d« th« writinf: across 
the fnee of the advert ieem^nt, or that there ws any agrcerawnt that 
the advertletBasscnt was to be without charRe. There is nothing in tlsa 
contraeto by which plaintiff af;re(4 tc pubUah any a-'vertieenenta 
of iSefendant without charge. As to fourteen iteiys clsirted to havs 
been published without autliority in the sionth of January, 1916, 
seven iteaa w»re proven by plaintiff to have borne the "o, K.," of 
defendant; it alse proved that the remaining iteaa were publiiihetf 
in the Chicago Harald en the several dates called for. 

Other itoaa defendant elslmed were published ^^iti.out 
his approval, but that they were published is adtiitted.

2^1IA. 639 



MR. JUiiTIC* D:?TJ!R DKLIV^mBD TH5I CFIKIOfi <W IHS COUW . 



This is an appeal by defend-mt from e judgpnent of 
the ttuniclpal Court entered against it and in faTor of plain- 
tiff for the 0IW of $8CC. The action is baaed upon a contract 
for the sale and delivery of certain scrap iron and steel* 

The contract in question was dated April 13* 1917, 
and is in part aa folloira: 

"The 'Company* ngrees to sell to snid 'Buyer' 
any and all scrap iron or steel, such as they may be 
in a position to load on oars within the next thirty 
Ki^) days at their plant at 2500 Grand nyenue. Chicago, 
Illinois, for the sum of sixteen and fifty hundreths 
($16.50) per net ton nf 2C0C pounds, reilroad weights 
to gOTem* cars to be weighed loaded and empty. 

Ihe terms of sale are to be sight draft with bill 
of lading attached. Cars are to be consigned to the 
ord(>r of the Artesian Limestone Company, care H. Jtern, 
19.XA street and Ashland sTenue, Chicago, Illinois, 
routing C. If. & St. P. and C. B. & %, Railroad Com- 
panies. 

crap is to be londed by the 'Company.* The 
*Company', however, is not tn be held responsible in 
any manner what»neTer in the event of t}ieir inability 
to obtain railroad equipment, fires, accidents, strikes, 
labor trouble or other CHUses beyond their control." 

For the plaintiff it was alleged that alth'vgh tfas 

time for delivery of the scrap iron and steel had long since 

elapsed, and that plaintiff had been ready and willing to re- 

oeive the material, the def ndant had refused to deliver it, nnd 

that as a consequence plaintiff had been deprived of certain 

gaims and profits; that defendant had on hand 150 tons of scrap 



-2- 

iron aad •*«•! nblch it ^aa in « position to deliver in plaia* 
tiff within .V^ dAys after the BaJkiag of the coatrset; that ita 
failura to so deliver ttoe BAterial eenetltuted a breeeh of the 
eoBtraet aatf th»t nt the tl»e of sueh f'svilare the difference 
betveen the contrttct. price «n4 the ncirket price of aorap iron 
aad ateel vaa ^14 per ton net. 

In an affidaYit of merits the defendant denied ■aterial 
nvementa ^f the 8t«te»ent of clain end speoifiolly denied thut 
it h»d on hand ISC tons of scrap iron and steel as alleged in 
the stateaent of clain or that it vsa in a position tn deliver the 
aoae on cere tvithin 30 days a«> provided in the eentraet; that the 
difference between the market price :>nd the contract price of the 
■nterial was not fcs alleged in the etat^ment «f el^^^ia. In an 
amendment to the affidavit of merits d<»fend«>jat everred tht^t tho 
contract wee too vagae end indefinite to impoae an obligation on 
defendant to deliver the m&terit^l to plaintiff e d «laotthnt defendl* 
ant ^fHB prevented froia d«rlirerin|f the scrnp iron and steel by in- 
ability to obtnin railroad equij^sent nt^ by labor trouble and other 
cruees beyehd its control. It ia admitted that the plaintiff re* 
quested delivery of ths material and that none ess famished him. 
i^uch argument is had in the brief of c"un«el tnuohing «{tteatiaas of 
fact in issae on the trial, one of which was as -to idiether the 
defendiint w»s in fitet *in a position to load on enrn the material 
contracted for." There was a direct conflict in the evidence as 
to whether the d«fendnnt wss in f'^et in a position to deliver the 
material and as to whether the defendant was able to procure cars 
or labor waf i icient tp ensble it to deliver the scrap iron and stool 
within ths thirty days required by the contract, ffo do net deen 
It advisable to discuss theoe qaeutions ns in view of whst la 
hereinafter stated the judgment of the trial c^rt muat be re- 
versed.

a principal grfniad for reTeraal the d«>fcndi^t urged thnX the 

O'^urt erred la awarding; aore than nnnlnal 6(mBg9e for tho reasen 

that the record enntaina no eTldeaoe of the BRrtet ralue of the 

■at^rial specified in the eontrAot. Two viuieeseis tesCified oa 

this c^OBtioD for the plnlatiff . B«b Stern, eae of iheae wit- 

neseet!, testified as follows: 

•Ihe Court: hen ymt any |37 what do you xesa 
by thfttt 

A. ATers^e &!! the wny thmugh. 

%• UlsoellfmeouB? 

A» Yes, iriacellaneous. ■ * * This partlcwlsr 

serRp wf;B hettftr than the ordinary bec-uae 
there were r«ll« in it. lh«re vt-s u&uble 
shafting, uaable pulleys «nd caet iron. * * 
Minety per cent of it wbs that nst'Prial." 

Agaia he aaid, referring to the aaiAunt of asterial at the plant: 

•There was 150 tons of scrap and machinery aAd asabl* 
■aterial there.* 

Morris Jtern for the plaintiff testified that: 

"There was wite n good deal of usable aaterial la 
the pile. The ♦!» - rails are usnblc, v© sell the« again. 
All the other ue^ble Bateri&l w»b the railroad rnlle, the 
shafting, the pulleys, the hangers, pipec and plates. There 
was a difference in the aarket price in the e last named 
eoBBiedities ks cnnpr-red with the areragc run of s^nrRV iron 
or steel, viooe of thft stuff is *SC a ton - '60. haftiag 
is worth 160 a ton. Palls «re worth '6r a ton, pipe S60 to 
170 a ton. Ihey wary in price r11 the wry up to ;50, $60 
•aA $7C, and sier&p iron itself is less. 

There were •!» rj-:il8 there, r- ilro,;d rails, shettlng, 
pulleys, pipe, plates nr sheets, the sase &8 plates. \11 
of these articles wes second-hand, usfeble aati^rial. 1 
should Judge ih^re waa abrut '5 per cent scrap there," 

Both of these wltacasas admitted that there wf^e a recognizable 

difference between what waa dencribed la the evidence «b scrap 

RBd usable naterial. Bob tern tesitified "there Is a dletinetiea 

between acrap and usable natprial.* Harris :itern said 'Usable 

aaterial we call aeeoad-hnnd Material.** The court held as a 

aatter of Ibw that the tera "acrap iron and steel" did not include 

such aaterial as rails* pulleys fend shaftings* The contract on 

its faue did not require defendant to deliver - aterial other than 

vhat Bpeeifie&lly specified therein, namely, scrap iron and 



at«sl, maA it ia apparent froB the ^ter^ilmony of plaintiff** 

that 
witiMB* es / trtm 75 to 90 per cent *»f the IBC tons of material 

eoBeisted nf ahaftinsa* pulleya, rails and ether aeeond^haRd 

usable aiatt^rial. 

Staadlac en the testiaeay of pl»iBtiff*8 sitneeeea 
aleae* it ia clear that the testteeay given as te the marfeat 
Yftltte of eerap iron or steel is of sach Qhartctffr that it ia 
iapeasible te say frnn the record v^hnt the valae of this seray 
material ana within the thirty day period r«»f«>r7ed to in the 
contract. Beth plaintiff *» witnesaes aey that 4a fixing the 
■srket Titlne at ,137 per ton they included net only serap naterial 
but alao a large pcraentage of aua.terial «hieh the evidence ahowa 
vaa net aernp, bat uaable or aecond-'ha&d naterial* sad that part 
of thia seennd'hand or usable material wue worth as nueh as froa 
$50 %r, ^c per ton. fhe evidence of plaintiff's witnesses quoted 
abnve shows how inpossible it is to arrive at any eonelusion frflii 
the evidence as to vFhr:t loss, if any. the plaintiff sustained by 
the alleged brr'.-:ch of the conimet. It is '^ur opinion th»t the 
•videnee wholly fails to show the aarket priee of the scrap iron 
or steel eontr&eted for at the tine and place provided for in the 
contract for ita delivery to plaintiff. 

In the eaae Of v>taley et al » v. Lyan« 151 111* App« 

137, the enurt salA: 

•It follewa thnt there woe no data on whieh aetual 
dMMges, if any, culd be cnmputed, and nflBin?«l daamges 
only were recoverable." 

^e are unable to agree with the stKtement in the brief 

of c^nsel for api^lles that plaintiff 'a witneaaea testified to 

a definite nBTket priee for the materittl eontrocted lor. Ihey do 

give the Market value of scrap iron and steel* but the testinony 

of these witneases h» abstrHCted very definitely discloses a 



.5« 



Bob otern iestified h6 follows: 

'X cannot tell you to the inch the cireumfereneo 
nf the bsec of the pile th»t had the shafting and the 
valleys - • I can tell y-«u pretty close 09 to feet. 
It was setitt^red ar^nind ab^^ot ten feet wide »ad ebnat 
7 to 8 or 10 feet square. Ixty-fiye to 7'^^ of it 
w»s uanble materiel. >ixty to 70^ of the ntaterlal that 
was in the last three piles in the yjd at office aide 
of the etreet w.-ie usable »atcriai.* 

The judgment of the Vunleipel Court will be rerersed 

•ad Judgment will be entered here in fsvor of the plaintiff for 

the BUB of 91.00 with costs here Htixi in the trial enurt in 

fsTor of defendant.

la an ACiinn for ddmaces 1>rmight l>y plaintiff against 
defendants for aa allegod breach of a eentraot entered into 
Cetebor 31, ISie. it vss charged thsit under the eentraot defend- 
ant* vere re<|ttired to sell and deliver to plaintiff *at once" a 
20 ton ear of wax not to exceed 45,000 pminds. 

The order for the shipment vas actually giren on 

HoTeisber 1, 1918, and a ear of wnx arrived at plaintiff's plant 

on Deeenber 2, 1916. On tinve«b«r 12, 1918, plaintiff notified 

defendants that ae the wax had not erriTod it ves coapelled to 

and did purehase wax in the open market and that plaintiff 

would hold defendants for the difference betwe«?n the cnntract 

and the siarket priee. In answer to this eoMraninicfttioa the de« 

fondants insisted that they had ordered prmpt shipsient of the 

c»r of wax and would insist upon its aereptaaeo upon its arrlTal 

vhioh 
in Chicago. the ear /contained 4C,ll& pounds of wax when re* 

ceired in Chieni^n ^n Deceober 2, 191B, mns accepted end paid for 

by plaintiff. Between Kovenber 12, 191B, and HoTORber 22, 1918, 

the plaintiff purchased 15,791 pounds of wax, of a sosievAiat 

different grade than that contrncted for, at an adTanoe of 20 

per pound oyer the contract price. Judgaent wbs entered in \/ 

foTor of the defendants and plaintiff brings the coee to this 



^/ 



ituiiittit'li^b 



.2. 



court by appeal* 

Th« jury whioh tried the ease was instructed te 
return a Tcrdiet ia faTor of plaintiff for $1.00 and ooata. 
It is inferable frem the reo<a-d that the trial judge vas of 
the opinion that the acceptanee of the goods and the paying 
therefor by plaintiff precluded it frflm setting up any l^as 
it night hare sustained by reason of delay in delirery. 

Section 41 of the Uniform oales Aot« Illinois 

ReTised Statutes 1917, makes it the duty of a buyer of goods 

to accept and pay therefor vhen delirered in accordance with 

the teras of a contract. Bectina 49 of the A.et providee: 

"In the absence of express or implied agreement 
of the parties, acceptance of the goods by the buyer 
shall not diechnrge the seller fron: liability in 
dmages or ether legal remedy for breach of any 
promise or w&rranty in the contract to sell or the 
sale. 

The record does net disclose that there was either am 
express or implied agreement by the parties to the suit that the 
acceptance by plaintiff of the shipment and the paying therefor 
was te be regarded ss a wairer on its part of its right to re- 
core r dassges for a breach of the contract which the trial judge 
found actually occurred. The evidence does disclosd such delay 
in the delivery of the goods 'b would wtrrsnt the submission to 
the jury of the question of damages occasioned thereby, if any« 
and this is so, even though it be admitted that tho defendants 
had a right to deliver the goods within a reasonable time after 
the making of the contract and net *at once* as insisted upon 
by the plaintiff. 

The decided cases cited in the briefs of counsel 
sustain the argument that a buyer who accepts and pays for 
goods may retain a right to collect damages for delay in 
delivery thereof if the circumstances show that it was not 
his intention to waive the right at the time the goods were 



-3* 



•cecpted «ad paid fer. There is nothing in the record before uo 
tending to ahov th«t the plaintiff when it accepted the goods 
in question did so witii an intention to waire a right to reoorer 
damages for delay in dellTery. It insisted at all tiaes upon 
its right to reeerer d.-«ageB therefor, and nnide frfln the statute 
quoted above, wtiioh «• think reserres the right to plaintiff to 
tring his action, the deeided enses and text writers cited do not 
in the Bain bold for a principle, in view of the evidence in the 
record that eoild authorize the trial Judge to inatruot the Jury, 
ns he did, that the plaintiff could reoover only nominal dosages 
for the delay in delitrery of the shipment, as held in the case 
of Hastsey ei al « ▼• lulley et al .. 12 111* App. 463, the question 
of vaiTcr is usually one of intention, each ease depending upon 
its peculiar facts. 

Ihe question of plaintiff's daa&ges, if any, hy reason 
of the breech of the contract should have been submitted to the 
Jury under proper instructions. Indeed, it vhn not only the right 
but it bccejBC a duty of the plaintiff, in nitigation of the 
daau^ses, to use reasonable effort to purchase the «rx in the open 
■arkct «dien it bcc«ae evident th»t delivery was not to be made in 
accordance wiUi the terms of the contract. Corn Planters Co. v. 
Jenkins . #24795 111. Appellate Court (not yet reported). 

It is insisted on behalf of the defendant thfit th* 
evidence shows that the goods were to be shipped fr<n a point 
distant from the City of Chicago, and that, henoe, the true 
neasurs of dances wtns the difference between the contract price 
and the market price of the wax at the point of shipment. The 
evidenoe doee not disclose whether the goods were to be shipped 
at or from Cbiengo, or from some ether point. The cnntraet 
between the parties wes entered into in Chicago, which seems 
to be the residence of all of the parties to the suit. Freight

defendants ctsted:

one** and rer'Ch ynu in the shortest possible tine. 
AS sonn as the c»r m»nil»r atsd ehirplnf dste ? re 
known, «e vill adrise ynu by telephone.* 

■hile the eTidenee is snae»fhat Tague and uncertain we 
are aot prepared to hold« for the purpose of deteraining the 
proper measure of dairagea. that the naterial v^e to be shipped 
froiB an unknown point beyond the limits of the City of Chicago. 
7he defsndnAte a.^penr to be engaged in business in c;hioago and 
they asHumed a contract for the delirery of the wax to plaintiff, 
which did not proride for the shipment from any particular point, 
other than Chicago* 

She testison/ of the only witness who testified, Ir. 
Peterson, called on behalf of the plaintiff, is to the effect that 
because of the failure of the defendants to delirer the wax, he, 
or his company, was compelled to purchase it in the open market 
and that "the market price nf inieh wax wrs 13.11 eents.* He also 
testified thpt there wie very little, if any difference between the 
wax purchased during the month of ifr.veTnber and th«t contracted for 
with defendantti. This witness did affirm that ther« waa no differ- 
ence in the market price of wax in car load lots and less than oar 
load lots that he knew of. The evidence shows the «!xi8tenee of 
the contract. The court held on the evidence that there had been 
a brea^ thereof and it is our opinion that the evidence introduced 
touching the question ef damages and market price should hare been 
submitted to the Jury. 

The Judgment of the Municipal Court will be reversed 
rthd the CRUse remanded for a new trial.

fentlftnts by Qtto C, Kentner and a, J, o'lJonogjiue, "their

on tiareh 15,1919, entered the follcwring order:

Cm motion to TReftte it -^mB obJeot«<l tiiet the affi- 
dftTit filed on b<°h«tlf cf the defen^.ant Anna L. McCold was unb«o 
lleTSble and in eiaterial points untrue; that Arthur '^. itioCeid, 
husband ef Anna L, MeOoid, upon the trial of the cnuae had ob- 
tain^d leave of court to appfsar for her and represent her as 
asscclatc counsel «ith ether attorneys in the cas.e* 

It is conceded thet the defendant Anna L. fee- 
Cold was net served with process in the suit, and the Jud^- 
nent agnlnet her must be vecnted unless t appears fro* the 
record that she tippeared therein eitlier by herself or by sc»a 
person nutherized by her to represent her. The evidence is un- 
contradicted that the attorn -ys who filed the appearance in the 
cause had no auti«rity to represent ^.rs. ».oCoid end the affidavit 



filed on motion to yacate satisfactorily shows that their appear- 
ance therein for defendants was, as to Mrs. McCoid, filed in- 
advertently. The record does show that Arthur B. McCoid had per- 
mission of court to file her appearance, but it does not disclose 
that he acted upon this authority. Ho appearance in fact was 
filed at any time on behalf of Mrs. McCoid by her husband, Arthur 
B. McCoid. She states, and so does he, in affidavits that he 
had no authority to represent her or to file any appearance in 
her behalf in the suit. The fact that the relation of husband 
and. wife existed between Mr* and Mrs. McCoid might give some 
ground for suspicion that he had authority to represent her or 
to employ attorneys to act for her. Bit whatever may be said or 
thought in this connection, the affidavits filed on her behalf 
definitely charged that he had no such authority* 

A partial transcript of the record discloses that 
counsel for plaintiff made an ineffectual effort to compel Mr. 
McCoid to inform the court as to his authority to appear in the 
case and as to whom he represented therein. The record does not 
show that Mr. McCoid in fact assumed to appear on behalf of 
Mrs. McCoid. 

The case of Franklin Savings BanJc v. Taylor , 131 111* 

376, appears to be in point. In that case the Supreme Court 

said: 

"Appellee was not made a party to the petition 
for mechanics lien, no one assumed to answer for her. 
ijhe denies that she ever authorized George Taylor, her 
husband, to appear for her or employ counsel to represent 
her in that proceeding - or, indeed, that she ever knew 
of the pendency of that proceeding until since the deed 
sought to be set aside was executed; and there is no 
evidence in the record tending to contradict her in this 
respect. There is no proof that George Taylor was the 
universsJL agent of appellee, with full power to act, 
and bind her estate in all instances in which it was the 
subject of litigation, and proof that he acted with her 
approval in a few instances, manifestly is no evidence 
that she would approve his acts in all instances." 

It cannot be presumed that because the relationship of . 



.- noii^ofii no boll 






ieris 



-4m 



hosband and wife existed bettreen Mr. and Mrs. McCoid that he had 
any general authority arising therefrom to represent her as her 
attorney or agent. She cannot be held to any liability for hia 
unauthorized acts touching her separate property, and that he was 
unauthorized to act for her is uncontradicted upon this record. 
ifrallace r. Monroe^ 22 111, App, 602. 

The order of the Circuit Court will be reversed and 
the cause will be remanded to that court with directions to 
take such further proceedings in the cause as will be in 
accordsmce with the Tlews herein expressed.

for the payment of interest, and at the tisi'? of its presentation 
for discount there apjeared thereon written in ink Uic frj lov/tng; 
•Int. at 5 ' per annuis." 

The case wr9 tried before tlse court witiiout a Jury 
ani ths court found da fnctra in the c^ae: 

■that the defendant was rr"«pnt at the *.'r.p> th»> rote -/as sr 
dls'ccunted and knew than the ^orda ♦lntf»r<»nt at f. i per

cf irtertirtK ni^U' '^crde urcn said note by makinfr no objection 
to said note belnr discrunted with B?^Id words thrrprr. 

Th« court finds epeciany ae facts in this o«s« 
that at the tliP» of execvition nni delivery of the note in 

Sx^eetion tn ':««n8 It did not contain thw words 'interest at

the B«ld ■''oldt* finfi s>«in8 'vur* treaert In plaintiff hBtik »nd 
that ?oldt#» then knsw that aula not« contained the word* 
'lnt«r««t at 5;;^ p«»r annua' prior tc the tl-^^e plaintiff ao* 
e»pted said nct«> fcr diaerunt," 

A JudfOBffnt waa «mt«r«d en thwaa fin<51nKa in fayer 
of th« plaintiff » nnd th acle question before ua la whather tha 
triel eourt erred in concluding that tha facts »c found were auf- 
fioi«nt to wmrrant tba finding that defendant had ratified tha 
unautuoriaed act of alteration cf th'; not«i. 

Tha evidence introduced en b^btslf of plaintiff 
tenda to protre that Toldt«» the d'<fendant, «aa present with I^eana 
at the time the note waa diaoountad at the hank on .>8roh 30, 1917; 
and that it then contained a prcvielon written n ppn and Ink for 
the p«.vBent of intereat; that at the tirae the note was preaented 
the defendant stated that it waa ^iTen by him to I}eans aa part of ' 
the purchaae price cf n piece of rital property. 

The defendant denied that h'' was present at the tiraa 
the note waa discounted, althouprh two wltneaape contradict bim aa 
to this. On this point the trial court waa in a such better poaio 
tion to determine the queation of fmot imrolved than ar«^ we. It 
is asserted, however, thnt the testlmeBy does not tend to prova 
that Toldte knew that the note contained the worda "Int rarest at 
Si per annual'' at the time it ^a accepted by plaintiff. The trial 
Judpe found otherwise. ;Ve think the evidence warrntjta the cenolu- 
sion that plaintiff received the note in du*? oourae, for a valuable 
consideration and wlthctut any knowledga of any dafonsa that «i^ht 
be made to nn action theraen, «nd, as at»ted, it received the note 
and paid value therefcr in the preaence of the defendant who, ac- 
aerdinR f taatimony, thereafter promised tr pay it. The evidence 
doea show that the not« aa originally drawn contained a blank apaca 
after the werda nn<i flfturaa •iJ'SZOl Wamer Avenue," and that the 
provision for the payment of interest waa written into this space . 



It Is conceded thAt the note in queetion -^as the obligntlcn of the 
defendant. A note teller for plnintiff testified thmt the defend- 
ant had promised to take eare of the note. Xhe evidence does not 
•how that the plaintiff was in any degree guilty of negligence, 
and vAiaterer night otherwise be said as to th*-- conduct of defend- 
ant, we think on the whole record the trial i/udge was fvarranted in 
findinii; that he knew that the interest provision had been written 
intr the note ftt the time pf its presentation to plaintiff. One 
witness for plaintiff testified that defendant "represented hissself 
as beinp the glv»r of the note, Rnd the *mv it was given «ms dis- 
cussed in his presenee." 

In th<» case of }:efn«^r v, Itewsen . 63 til , AO^, the 
eourt said: 

■This ease, in ita main features, is much like the 
one of liefner v. Vandal ah . 6?, 111. 4B3, except that there is 
«aore in thn conduct of the defen^iwint, nnd the circuffistRncee 
in the present case t\o testified to, which partakes of the 
chnracter cf an estoppel Jja pais , then there was in the former 
one, and there is a conflict of testimony here which did not 
there e^sist. There was evidence in the present case wrdoh 
went to shew, and -«rould sustain the finding': of the court to 
that effect, that the defendant net only adopted and ratified 
the siicnnture of his nnaie upon tiie note, l>ut tliat, by his ad- 
aiisslcns nnd declaraticna that the note was 'all rifcht,' and 
that if plaintiff would 'hold atill • he would pay him, he 
knowingly and desi^enedly induced the plaintiff to omit taking 
any measures to collect the note of Goaian «•«." 

The Judpraent of the Jamie ipal court will be affirmed.

KR. JUaTlCF I>FV1?R DSLIVTSBED rWi^ OHKIOR Oy THE COURT, 

Ilttlntiff, bpinr thp pvmer ef premieee in th*> nity 
of Chicago known r« Ite , 1656 Went Twelfth street, on the 16th 
day of Jsmipry, 1919, esde » lease for the first floor thereof, 
which l«aae maa, with thp consent ef rlsintiff, aasiicned on the 
11th day ef July, 1919, by the lesae^^a to defendants. It was 
provided in the lease that *nc piano playing, singeing or other 
forts of ainuBement shall he kept and maintained" in the premises 
without the written perniission cf tne leaser; that the lessees 
were to insure certain plate glaaa on the preniaes «nd thnt the 
policies for such insurance were tc be delivered to the lessor. 

Evidence introduced upon the trial tends to prove 
that notwithstanding the provisions of the lease defendants 
permittcKl plane plnying on the preriises durinp the day and at 
times at niplit until as late as from twelve tc two o'clock, and 
thPt thev failed to ccroplv wlt)i the provisions cf the leftae «rith 
respect to procuring insumnce pclicics upon th<» plate ^1**** 
On '=^ cf the defendants, call eri aa n rritness for pl«intiff, tes- 
tified that dafen-lnnts had « piano in the prereiaes "last v(»ar 
and also during the months of April, i-'ay and tarch of this 
year;" that it was played until eleven o'clock at night . The 
plaintiff testified that he heard piano plnying during the months 
ef larch, April and Jiay; that "it was a great big electric piano; 
it playa very loud, just like a sledg^amffier." 



other evidenoe was introduced in eurport of j Iain- 
tiff 'e contention thwt the l«w»ae had be«n violated with respect to 
pisno plpying on the prewiees. The building in ^hich the leaaed 
premises is lecnted is n three-story bulldin#j consietin^- of a 
store en the first floor snd flnts en the second Pnn third floors. 

June 16, 192C, plaintiff serred a 'written notice uron 
defendnrtta cf rlsintiff 's election to teminnte the lease on the 
28th de -^ of June. 192C, becauae of failure on the p'^ft of defend- 
ants to ccmplywith its terms. On failure of defendants to dellTer 
possessirn of the precises as d(»ianded by the notice, an action 
for forcible detainer thereof was begun in the trial court. At 
thr close of plaintiff's evidence the court on motion cf defendant* 
directed the jury tc find a verdict in favor of defendants. Jud^r- 
ment "tks entered on the directed verdict and plaintiff brings the 
ease tc this court by appeal. 

It is our opinion that the trial court erred in 
instructing the Jurv to f in.-i for the defendants, ICtoe evidence in 
the record tends to sustain the position taken by plRintiff that 
defendants had violated the teriBS of thp lease, both as regards 
piano rlpving in the prer-ises pnd as tc the failure of defen-lants 
to insure the platr> ^esa. The build inp was used in a larpe part 
for residence purposes and the prrvioion in the lease vhich pro- 
hibited piano playing therein •'tas reasonably necessary to render 
the premises fit for such use. iart cl the testimony tends to 
show that the wife of one of the tenants was ill durinr the time 
that the piano was flayed on the pronises, sometimes as late as 
twelve o'clock at nifcht, and that the tenants had objected to 
the disturbance and annoyance thereby created. 

We do not think the evidence tends to show that the 
lessor intended by the receipt cf rent to waive his right to de- 
clare a forfeiture of the lease. Clause 21 of the lease was 



changed after th« assipniHent thRreof to defendania ac an to require 
the defendanta to derosit ^l.OCO aa 8ec«rltv for rert, »aid sujn to 
be held by the lesser until the expiration of thc» tera, narpeiy, 
until April 50, 1921. Thia aur, was deroaited witli the leaser 
under a clnuse fhich provided that at tiie ex'iratlon of the tern, 
if all the conditions and coTennnttis of the lease had b^en fully oom- 
plied with, then the ifum waa to be returned to the defendants, and 
that if any of the conditions and coyenanta of the lease had been 
broken, "tc, then the lessor shall >e permitted to "retain the sum 
of one thousand dollars until any differences between s.iid p«»rties 
shall have been adjusted by settlement or suit," 

It isj said by counsel for defendants thst if the lessor 
Is successful in the present action the one thousand Sollar deposit 
wfnil (1 be kept by hin.ns the question as to whether nprellei^'S h»d 
viol »> ted any of the covenants would then be res Judicf»ta in a suit 
to recover the ;)1 ,000, '9e dc net intend te pass upon the validity 
of this contention in this opinion, further than to say that it is 
our Ju<'-rBJent that the evidence introduced en the trial ^*as sufficient 
to warrant a subnissicn of the issues of fact tc t)ie jury, and that 
the court erred in directinf- a verdict ir defendants' f»»vcr. The 
evidence tends to show that the lessor did not receive cr accept 
rent for the premises after the service of notice of his election 
to terjrinpte the lense. nnd there is nothing in the record before 
us which tends to prove that he received payment of money for rent 
or for any purpose T^iich would bsr hi« from assertinR n ripht to 
teririnpte the lease for a violation of its terms by the assiffnee*.

This ia »n oppenl from h Jjudfewent ©f the Manloipal 
court in « forcible dfttainor iwlt brouirfjht by the jslalntiff, a 
lease* of eertaln rocme in a buUdini: known as Tie. 5:30)2 Cornell 
aTenue, agalBst defendant, who ceoupied tii& >ittm9 prcarjiaes under a 
prior written lease executed by the father of the plaintiff, Jneob 
9, Seerr, the ernier of the building. The Judf^iuent of tin^ court 
was entered apon a Tffrdict of the JIury befc^-w which th« case was 
triffd. "l-,*? sole tjufstlon of fnct upon ?»hich the validity f the 
judpr.fnt in QU«>8tir<ni«d io ss to whethwT the Icrase between Jacob 
1'. Doerr, the ovmffr e>f the building, un'l the defendant, f^, C, 
Vooda, had been altered in such mnnrier as tc make It aFP<«r that 
the leaae terminated upon the first day of Pay, l9?.o, and net 
upon the first day of Ji?ay, 1931, as contended for by the defendant. 

The defendant while on the witness stand examined a 
oopy of the lease through a magnifying glass and he testified that 
th<f endorsenent en the baek had been altered since the exeeution 
of the lease by chsn^^inK ths figures "1921" to read "1920." The 
alteration made it appear that the lease terminated on the SCth 

day of April, 1920. 

Two oopies ef the lease were introduced in evidence; 
that introduced by the defendant siiews on Hie baoJc thereof that 
the dat*» of expiration of the lease was April 3C , 1921. The dste 
of the tertci nation of the lease as it appears r>n the face of 



thlB instniBKsnt ie somewhat blurred, th« typewritten figures *2-0* 
»ppar«ntiy bwinn writtmi over the figure* "Q-l" In the leeee. 
However, the copy of the lenee Introduced by plaintiff -nd said 
to be the origln«X»howe vcrv cl early upon its face, as well as 
on the back, that the terminatico >iate of the lease as crlginslly 
drawn was f^ril 30, 1921, and that this date, in (» oowewhst olumay 
L annnffr. was ehanged so as to ainke it nppear that the term expired 
on Aiprll SO, 1980, The main dieruted qv)»8tlon of f«et upon the 
trial »mo as tc tbi« chRnjre, llwintiff's »g«>rtt teetificd tUet the 
lease was exAetited for a one y*ar term and not for two y^ars, as 
in slated itpen by defendant. 

The eridenoe as »h«traoted piTes no explanation as 
to why these ohsnR^e wpre mede, fxcept that ocunspl for the plain- 
tiff, -Thf'n the defendant had been handed a aaftnifyinsr iB;la«8 to ex- 
amine the lease for the purpose of tftstifyinff as tt^ the alteration, 
stHted: "It la not necessary, i ad-rdt that it has be«n ohan«i;ed." 
Both the rlAlntiff, who tilaim* to be a lessee of the premisss, and 
lier father, the o'«mer, were pl^oed on the ^ritness stand, but no 
•Tidenoe was offered to explain this adKiaeion of counsel or the 
•h«nr« in the lease, la this atnte of the reocrd, the unoontradieted 
testincny of the plaintiff mist be taken as true, nnrt this testinony 
shows that the lease. which was drawn by the plaintiff or her acent, 
was is!^terl»lly alt<«red. ()n this slutwinit we think the Terdiot and 
judfment should have been in farer of the defendant; and notwith- 
standing seats aotblifmity appearing uron the face of the copy of the 
lease introduced by th*- defendant, the admitted material altero-

parently the trial court was ef the opinion that piaijaiff cculd 
not salntaln a several suit upon the bcnd» and Jud^^fiient was rendered 
aicainet hioi. 

Counsel for plaintiff says that the decisive «|uestloB 
involved in this record has never been bcfor-c thf^ courts in this 
statff. This Is probebly tru*?, but the aupreme court h»e spoken ia 
two eases which plve ut felrly definite icuidanee to a oonoluslon 
as to lAiBt the l»»w cf this stnte ie In thla respect. The first 
of these Is Ovingtcn ■». aaith . 78 III. 260, where the general ml* 
««• stated that ^ere tha Intereat of obi l«e«Hl In a brnd is Joint 
they suet be Joined as plaintiffs in an action en the bond. The 



other c»8c Is ^.f . r«tlcm>l i-ote } ., Co. v. Flynw. 238 III , 65«, in 
which th» court held th«t wher«» » bond wau and<? to twu cr aor« 
p««r9rnB Jointly, Xii« 1 «g«l iritereat of Suoi: obli«©«« ie Jelnt 
iwtrwithstsndlng the defcnsanoe el&uao which provides for th« pny- 
««nt of menoy to one or acre of the eTJlig««»» Jfolntly or •everftlly, 
and thBt if an of th« ohlig«e« rts llTin^ h% thP ti»e suit Is 
brovip-ht en the hcnd they rust J<^in m the action. 

It le Insisted th«fc the fpcts in the instant onse 
differ saterlally frtao th» fRota rr«9<»nt«»d in these onaes; that the 
preo^it r«eprd present a thr quest ion of nne cf three obllis^eet In am

proTin^ that th(? other oM irees 1jbv«» not Taeen dawnlflod and that 
he alone has the hpneflolnry int<»r<»«t In the bond, sfiiile this 
praeiae reoerd was not sqiiarely presented in IUhe Uotel Co. oaaa. 
surra . yet In that opinion approval is irivan to conaideratlona 
<«hioh, appll«»d to the pres«at question* lead to the oonclusion 
that plaintiff oannet sBointaln tills action alone. In the i'«tal 
Co. case the distinetlon is noted between the legal interest of a 
party in the bond iw6 the benefit tc b« derived frc?, or under it; 
many cases are oitad suprortlnj? thl«. *7ho f«et that the defeas- 
ance in th* bond provides for sjeparate payments to the obligees 
dofis no+. Chan;;* the 1 efral interest in the ebTlf:ntion.» ApFlylng 
this to the Instant case it is olear that by the terws of the

and cites froB diction riee to the effect thr.t the word "that*

when the abandensent took plaoe, and tn go «ith her to the 
■anager of the store, who, meeting them on one of the floors, 
requested them to came to his office in the Inilding, where 
he interrogated appellant se to her name, femily, sddrees 
and identity. There was nothing in the evidence tending to 
•haw thi^t she did net voluntarily comply vith these requests, 
or thet she vas under any restraint, or thnt any force waa 
exercised to d^^tain her. On the contrery, her own evidenoe 
tended to show that she made no objection to sudi requests

questions asked. There being no evidence tending to show 
ffilse imprisonment or assault we think the verdict for

it so&s» unnecessary to cite thesi. 'e think, therefore, the court 
was Justified in the abseaoe of eny tf>adeney in the evidence to

«ato-tntck on nne af appellsnt's streets* The evtieaee tends %n 
stew that the track ran into a depreseiea al<»ng a ear rail in 
ike street ceasing it ta tarn etrnr nad fi^ll en plaintiff. The 
action ie predicated on the failure of npnellaat to keep said 
•treet in a proper state ef repair. The appeal is frosB a Judg- 
■est entered in farer of plaintiff for t4«50O. 

The first point is that th« notice serred npon 
appellant w>^.8 insuft ieient in th t it f nils te atate the time 
of the accident oorreRtly« the plaee definitely, end the nane 
of the attending phyaieian. Ihe notice designated the time as 
"ab'vt e o*eloek p. ■•* of the date of the Hccident, the plACO 
as "48th .TOMM aenr iost 17 th . treat »" and the name of the 
attending physician as 'Or. T. : • Hoed," giving his address. 
The tiaie as s«om to ar.s as late aa "along abo«t hoivoen threo 
and four o'clock in the afternoon,' hat the witness being 
nnable te give the apeeifie hoar.

OTidenoo tended te shew thr t the aecident took pl&ce ne^xr thnt

taken and later eared for by oUier phyeieiaas. It further 
appeared th?;t appellant's engineer snd two of its police of fleers 
were et Uie scene of the accident within an hr^r «if its happeninc* 
sad that the engineer teak sieasareamits of the hole into «hi^ 
the eri'lt'nee t^nds to show the truok ran. There wks no attosyt 
to ^o« that appellant «bs nisled or prejndieed ^ say ais-

there is no Jast grouad for eoaplaiat as to the aaffieieaoy of

aor that they were takaa aader eoaditioaa like those existiag at

Appellsni elaine that the evidence show* that the

therefore ita negligence* If any. sua not the prexjauite c oaa*

Certain given instruetieaa are coaplained of as

BKLITSRSD THE OPZfilOS GF ¥BS CCUfCt. 

Thlo ftpp«al is tvtm a JudgmeBt of $1250,00 for 
pvraeaRl injuries rco«iTed by appellee (the plaintiff } trem 
a oolliaioB with am of appellantn' street eara. 

AVpellaats emttend that the Tsrdict is egainet 
tha olear prependeranae af Ute evidence in that it sho«a that 
tha ear was propelled at moderate apeed while approaching 94th 
•treat, Chicsgo, where tiM aecidest took place, with the exer- 
•ice of ordin&ry oare by the Botoman to awoid danger, aaA 
that laintiff w«8 lOiilty of oontribuvtury negligenee. Ca 
both points the evidence, as is not uBusual in uuch c,-».*es, 
vas conflicting, there was evidence fr^* «hloh a Jury Mit^t 
have decided the ease either way. But the evidence is so 
ansatisf ftctory on what w« dees the aain point in controversy 
that while we fael the Jttd«neat should not stsad we slae 
think that the plaintiff was wrongfully prevented fr^ puttiag 
la full evidence oa that point and henee the eaitae should be 
reaanded far a new trial. 

The accident happened on Hovecber 10, X9X!>, at 
about 7 p. m, in an open country where 94th street, a dirt 
'•fid running east and west, crosaes the westerly or south 
bound track on which appellants* oar was running, i Isintlff 
•as going vest, and the ear struck the rear end of hie wagon.

previously exanined the vritness on the point nf the distanee of

pensitted such excBtination seme of the incou^ruitieo of hie

was issportent, if not oecesuary, to plaintiff's cukc. But wbile

In the amended Btatement of claix the alleged con-

also expected to pay the def&ndant sosie fair cob-

The "foregoing arrangements concerning s&id engine* 
thus referred to, aa previously stated in the pleadinca, were 
that prior tn s«id euetion a^le "defendant h vd purchased of 
plaintiff an engine located in a plane of husinese oecupiod hy

Appell«i|t./ i^ ^ i ioK® ^ 



n. PRSUIDIMG JUSTICE BA^SS 
DELIVBRKD THB OPIKIOH OF THE COURT, 

This action is predicated en the charge that defendaat 
so negligently operated an electric ear in which plaintiff 
(appellee) was a ps^ssenger that it "gave a sudden and violent 
jerk" causing her to be thrnwn to the floor of the oar and 
injured* 

That plaintiff fell in the car was not questioned. 
The Tital question of fact for the Jury to detexnine was 
liiether, if her fall was caused by a Jerk of the car at all* 
the Jerk was unusual. On this point we think the werdict is 
manifestly against the preponderance of the eTidence, and will 
briefly state our reasons* 

It is undisputed that the train consisted of two 
ears, a siotorear and a trailer or "sneker" behind it; that the 
■eteman was in the front restibule of the former and the 
conductor at his station between the two cars, standing with 
•ne foot OB the open platfom of the smoker, and the other 
in the passage leading to the motorcar, where he operated the 
gates to let passengers on and off, and that those in the 
motor-ear hud to leaTe at its rear end and could not get off 
from its front end. Plaintiff's only witness to the occurrence, 
beside herself, said he was not in the first car aor in the 



-2. 



aaoker, but admitted that no one could get off at the froat end 
of the first ear. She testified that she was in the first ear 
sad fell do«n "near the frent door vdiere you haTe to get off,* 
sad that the conductor also wbs standing nt the front door ■> 
sn inpost-ihle place for hin to perfom his duty ft the gates. 
In Tiev of the great preponderaace of evidence establishing the 
fact that plaintiff vas in the first car and prepariag to get 
off the sasie at its oaly exit* namely, in the rear, the Tersion 
giren hy plaintiff sad her witness w&s asnifestly incorrect, 
.^ile her recollections may hare been confused by reason of the 
accident it is difficult to account for his STidence, if he was 
actually there . The f net that he agreed with plaintiff ia a 
manif > stly erroaeous Tereioa impairs the probatire Talue of his 
testimony, especially as it appears that hia nenie was not taken 
as a witness, th;>t he knew no one in the ear nt the time, th»t 
he neyer saw plaintiff until within three months of the trial • 
fifteen months aaf ter the occurrence •> and then met her through 
the solicitation of her hashand who claimed to hare learned of 
his presence ia the ear at that late day Knit in a way unsatis- 
factorily explained. His tentimony, on which plaintiff was wholly 
dependent for corroboration^ cannot be deemed rery reliable under 
such circumstances, especially when contradicted by that of three 
ether disinterested witnesses and the testimony of the conducStr 
and motorman, all of vAiose Tersione conform to the physical facts 
of the case • 

The three passengers thus testifying gsre their names 
•ad addresses at the time aad sosm of them wrlttea statements of 
the facts shortly afterwards. Two of them stood in the reaH end 
of the first car aear irtiere plaintiff fell, and one stood en the 
•pen front platform of the smoker. Saeh saw her fall, gave a 
siailar descriptiea of the manner of it, aad were positire that 



there vas no Jerking nf the ear or unusual aOTenent of the train. 
Sren plaintiff** witness en croae exanination said that he obserTed 
nothing unuaual ahnut the aiotinn of the ear until he heard her 
"heller" at the tiiae of her falling, which, of course, v"3 after 
the time of the alleged Jerk. 

la describing her fall the three passengers testifying 
for defendant said in turn t>f<t *her kneea gare way and she fell 
backwards putting her hand down to get supnort;" that '^she seemed 
to drop down;" that "plaintiff kind of stooped down and then went 
to the side to the floor;** that "she stooped as she fell," sitting 
down on her knees uid going over to her left side. It appeared 
that plaintiff had an exopthalmic goiter, one of the symptoms of 
which is a tendency to weakness of the knees and of the muscles 
which become flaccid. These witnesses* description of her falling 
seems to hare been consistent with such symptons. 

The motorman also testified that the equiiwent of tho 
Car was such that in applying and shutting off the electric power 
no Jerking would occur. But wr find n- thing in the eridence to 
indicate any unusual Jerk or mOTement of the oar, neglect or want 
of care in its operation. If the mOTement he<d been unusual it is 
strange all the ether numerous passengers standing in the ear 
preparatory to getting off should not hare fallen or so staggered 
as to make it noticeable to more than one passenger in the car* 

Authorities upon actionable negligence from the Jerking 
of an electric ear are to the effect that it being an incident to 
the method of transportation, the Jerking or lurching or stopping 
of the Car must be unusual to Justify the inference ot negligence 
or carelessness in its operation, and thst it is not enough to 
proTe a mere "Jerk" and an injury therefrom, or to characterize 
it as "violent" or "sudden" or by a similar term; but that there 
■ust be proof of siitch attcndaat circumstances as support and 



decisions of this court, ( C, & A« ■<» R. Co. t, Means, 48 111, 
App., 396; Ch, Un« Tr. Co. ▼, Ugokstein , 136 Id., 389) and aro

'/e shall not attenpt to review the authoritlos* 
It is enough to refer to then for support of the doctrine, the 
gist of which is that the proof nust be such as to indicate 
that the jerk, lurching, or swaying of the ear was unusual. 
Such is not the proof in this chbco The Judgment will be 
rerersed with a finding of fact.

Aa a defense to the present action defeadaat set forth

Plaintiff toetified ia aabetunee thnt he eade all tho

Mareh 4, 1916, with one exception, Tiz. the walk Korese tho

i^ark Caamissioaers, aad thitt there was a walk eoaacetiag the 



aid«««lk with the street, though noX exactly oppoalte the steps, 
vhleh said CoBoiigsieBers thought was suffleient; nnd that after 
said settlement agreement wus executed he tinted the walls and 
•eiling of the bedroom injured by the leak in the roof* 

Defendant testified thnt after .Plaintiff had installed 
the toilet in the basement* whenevtt:' there was a heavy rain the 
•ennc* would back up through the toilet and flood the basmsat 
floor and produced a steaeh; and that he Bade sereral cmplaints 
to plaintiff ooneerning this backing up of sewage before the 
settleaent agreement of June 2B, 1017 was nade. Plaintiff testi- 
fied in sttbstanoe that tht^ toilet in the baseaent had been properly 
installed; that after receiving defendant's eonplHints he tried 
to reaedy the oeeasional condition by installing back prefssure 
TalTes; that these corrected the difficulty to a grent extent but 
not entirely, owing to the fact that the main sewer in &lst street 
was inade(}ttate for the entire sewage of the neighborhood; sad that 
oeeaaionally after a heary rain there would be a slight overflow 
in the bnsenent but not enough to esttse an unsanitary eondition. 

Under the facts and eirii^Kstances disclosed we are of 
the opinion that the finding of the court that defendant was liable 
under the lease for the rent reserved during the seven nonths that 
the preaiises rasained waeant after their abandoaaent by defendant 
was correct. Bo point is aa-'e th t after sneh abaadoaaeat plala*

foadaat origiaally took ^ossasoioa under the lease disputes aroso

uader plaintiff *8 writton agreeaent to aake repairs exeouted coa* 
currently with tho lease, and a suit was eommeneod. fending that 
■uit a eoaproaise was effected by plaintiff allowing defeadaat a

Board form, bearing dete NoTember 3, 1917, in n^lch a^ld 
Sllxabeth J. -vh&ffer is named as first party and defendant ao

It further appears fr^^m the testlnony of defendant aad 
her husband, C. t, Schnltz, in subetanec that the latter was acting 
«s the agent of defendant in conducting negotiations for the 
pnstiible 6»!le or exchange of defendant's property on Cornelia

the representations to defendant* or to her laisband, as testi*

"This is to notify you that ynur written off^r dated

Vashlagtoa testified th»t he whm at his aiother'n hosie the entire

▼iev of tbe posit iTe tesLlBony of the witnosses* Chaiuiy and 
HaBio Blackcrt 11, w» »r« unible to aay thstt tbm cnurt'a finding 
was vroog. He saw all the witnesses, heard then testify, 6h^ 
•erred their aanner and demeanor while on the stand, and was 
the better enabled to test their eredibility. 

But it is here argued by cmansel for dr^fendants that 
the feoplc failed to prore that the defendnnts brolce into 
oegal's saloon and thft they took and carried away the cigars 
and eigarettee and that, therefore, the eh&rge of larceny was 
not sufficiently prered. The evidenee shewed that the saloon 
had been broken into and the eigars and eigaretteo taken during 
the night. It is true that no witness teiitified that he saw 
the defendants* or either of thea. eetually enter the salnm, 
or that he saw the defendeoits, or either of theat, in the act 
of taking the property stolen. Two witnesses, howerer, testified 
that t)»y saw one of the defendants in the &et of attenptinp to 
break into the saloon, irtiile the e^er wbs on guard et the corner 
or en tho sidewalk. The hour was 1:30 o* clock in the morning, 
uftd later in the morning, after it had beeeaie dayliglit and Segal 
had Krrired t his place of business, he found that the side donr 
had been broken late and his property taken away. e i.hink that 
the eiroumstances show that these aots had been done by the do* 
fendaats and with a felonious intent. -%ile it is true that it is 
essential on the charge of Inreeny to prore that the aeeased wrong- 
fully took and carried away the property of another, ( etts t. 
People . 2r>A 111. 233); it is^ also true that this fact may be prored 
by ei reus Stan tial evidenee. ( Carroll ▼. People . 136 111. 456. 462.) 
In jgeople ▼, Ooodwtn . 263 111. 99, 102, it is said: 



"CirctuBBtaatial eyldeno« ma.j be resorted to 

for the i»rpccc of proving the conms delict i in 
the ease way and to the saae extent that it nay 
be for the purpose of connecting the aocased with 
the eaieiB:ie8ion of the offense. * It is seldon 
thut either of these can be proved by direct 
tei3tinony, and therefore the fact say lawfully be 
established by circuvstantisl eridence, provided 
it be eatitf actory.* 3 Greenleaf on BT.,«16th ed. 
•ee. 30; Carroll v. People, 136 111. 466)." 



In flur opinion the guilt of tho defcndents of the erise of 
larceny w&s eetablished beyond a re;n. finable doubt.

the e«ia« «*• tried before the court without the 
interrentic*} of n Jury. 

Thft t«»rsa of the d»55l3e v&u five v^ara, terminating 

y>y efflux of time en April S'-. 1924. The pra^iaes leased w*re 

2444, 
Buabered 244^, 2442,/2446 n -i 2448 ^eot ¥«enty«seeond street, 

Chicago, and were to be occupied for !5i«nuf aoturinr purpcaee, 

Hbe l^ase was executed for plaintiff by one Charlea 
H. Gedey na her agent, who rIdc collected thp rent paid under the 
lease. IhiB 1 ense was negotietsd by Gadev as agent, -he judg- 
ment was grounded upon the allefred riclatien of thpt clause of 
the lease which proTldes that defendant, tbp lessee, "will net 
allow saii pretsises to b«» uaed frr sny purpose thai will inereas* 
the rat<» of insurance therecn, nor for any purpose ether than 
tl»t hereinbefore spiHslf l«»d, nor tc be occuri»*» io wk.el p or in

written ccnaent of the party of th*» first p'lrt first had, and will 
not perrlt any transfer, by opemtion of Inw.**** 

It appear 9 that one of the viftl^tirns of the fore-

the pi'ric'^ of tfce aubl ettinr and reoupancy of the Korth :>i -e <ia»h 
and iJoer CoaopAny, 

It nvy:t>»rs that te qilnimice the insurance presriutas a 
certain parapet «rae built on a certain part of the de-^ised rremises 
and that by agreement between the parties defendant paid cr.»»h«lf 
of the cost of the erection of auc)i parapet, beiBfC ^dZ, for whioh 
plaintiff received e check, r^r^^ that plsintiff ta!i»»d with defend- 
ant reirardinc the inarease in insurar.ce rates, <<;ttributini? such 
iaerease tr the oceupar.cv of thf ISorth iiide ^ah and Deer Company, 
and in adiitien to payinir hnlf of the vxpumae of erectinfr the

m month to cover increaaed inaursnee prflstltma, ccoasirned bv the 
ooeuparsoy of the Horth Side Saah and Beer Company of that portion 
of the det'^laed pressiaes above described. 

It also appears that flft*»r the l^crth iJide .5a8h and 
Deer Company vacated the precsises, that portion oocupisd by thsm 
rsmained nnoccupisd and unrest M for about a mcnth, an.5 that en 
January 16, 1920, defendant sublet the premises formerly occupied 
by the Borth iilde 3asb an » Uoor Coca^pany to the i*»fcrd tianufaotur- 
ing Company for a period of two yeara. ^bla was liVe^rlse acccm- 
plished without the written ccnuent of r'5"lntlff, this subletting. 



I 



it i3 Claimed, tmo Also Vne«n to r^»intlff mnd her nij^ent. 

It is cl Rimed by defendant that plsintiff visited the 
promises in the early pert of \9^^ * «t wbich time ahe id Msid to 
h«T* talked 'srith defendant's president about th«» ceoupancy of tha 
>Baford i^nufacturiBf Goasp^ny, *hi? president tpiiing plaintiff 
tiiat thay had procured a cleaner termnt.

dlseoverv that ciefen4ant was recelTrln^^ rental frcs the Adaraft

is adsittpd that plaintiff received a ch«?cV fer the rer.t of the 
entire deriaed pre&ises for the eonth ef June aeountin^ to 
I3C-1 .16 and that auch cheok was deposited in the baak ace cunt 
of plaintiff in the uaual -way. on July ii » 192u» plaintiff had 
defendant served with a notice terrinatingr the term for the vir-.la- 
tien of the covenant afsinst subletting and comjsendlor, that it 
qfttit the pi'<*a)i8eB« 

It in *^e opinion of th« o«urt that reoeiving a

waiver of 'he scvenant against sublettini;« beeause *-he cheek was 
received after the discovery that def«»ndlait had offended ajgeinst

fendant under a lease fron plaintiff, of i^lch judipsent de* 
fendaat seeks a reversal on this appe&l. 

tht lease expired by its tenss on April 3'^, 1920. 

It contained the f olloieriztg oltxase on a typewritten rider* 

vis: 

**If said lessee does not give said lessor 
sritten notice, 60 days prior to the expiration 
of this lease of his intention to vacate said 
premises at the expirution of the teres hereby 
grunted, the failure to give such notice shall 
operate as a renewal of the tenf^ncy for the 
further period of one year at the option of the 
lessor." 

It will be observed that the sixty day notice was 
te be given by the lessee and not by the lesser. However, 
plaintiff put his own construction on this clause in the 
lease by giving sixty days notice to terminate the lease on 
the day of its expiration, "iihts nntiee w s given February 
13, 1920, more than sixty days prior to April 30th* 

I«efenciant objects that neither the notice nor

APPEAL PROV MUKICU^./VL COURT 
OF CHICAGO. 



kR. JUoTICE DEfVER DELIVERED TES OlIHIOH OF THE COnRT. 



648 



This is an appeal from a judgment of the iiunicipal 
court entftred in favcr of the plaintiff an'^ apainst the defend- 
ant. 

In the Municipal court the plaintiff sought to re- 
cover a ;1ud(?Tnent on two insurance policies in the defendant com- 
pany for the sum of §2000 each. These policies were known at 
the trial as #4 and #1370 respectively. At the conclusion of 
all the evidence the court, on mcticn of the defendant, excluded 
all evidence relstinfr tr pel icv #4 and directed a verdict en 
Tolicy ^-1370 in fsvcr cf the plaintiff. Only the action of the 
court in 'Entering a judpment on the letter prlicv ig questioned 
here. The evidence shows that the application for the insurance 
provided by prlicy #1370 contained a stipulation as fellows: 

"«*♦ If at sny time hereafter I shall engage in the military 
or nsval service in timp o-^ "^r, without the written consent 
cf the coinpfinv, the policy hereby applied for shall thereupon 
heccine null and void." 

It was stipulated on the trial that the insured 

at the time the policies were issued was a ccnnnissicned officer 

in the National Guard of Illinris; that about the 12th of Aupust, 

1917, he arrived with a detail cf his regiment at Camp Logan, 

near Houston, Texas, and therewfter on August 23, 1917, end while 

in the perfcTiBance of his dutv as such commissioned officer, he 



met his death while attempting to quell a riot. 

It is ccnceded that all of the pr«»niiini8 due on the 
said policy hnd heen paid to the extent thnt the policy was con- 
tinued in force until October 1, 1917. The by-laws of the de- 
fencinnt ccmpany provide that its pclicies shall beocme null and 
void if P raeraber engage in military or naval service in time of 
war. At the time the insured met his death this countrv was at 
war T-/it.h the Imperial German Government, llaintiff s position 
en the trial and here is that the defendant waived the prevision 
of the by-laws «ind the application above quoted. 

It is also insisted fcr the plaintiff that the clause 
against mil itRry service mis air! is void as nrainst public policy; 
that It does net aprlv wh^Te the entrv into the military service 
was involuntary; that the insured's death was caused by hazard 
ccreron tc bpth military ptt^ civil life and did not occur by reason 
cf his militarv service. 

It appears from the evidence that the death of in- 
sured was c«used whil «!^ he was actively engaged in military service 
for the United States Government. The clause in question was in- 
serted in the pclicv bv the insurer for Its benefit, and should 
therefore be construed more strictly against it. 

The case of Keller v. Fidelity >Jatual Life Ins . Co ., 

169 Wis. 274, is in some respects like the present case. In that 

case the Supreme court said: 

"We think it is clear that th** language was used for 
the piirre«»e of liraiting the liability tr the return of the 
prerrlu!f« in cases "Jh -Te death resulted direct! v cv indirectly 
from rwe cause r^culinr tc the military service »^nd one net 
comrren to military service nnd civil isn i if e. ., The deceased 
came to his death bv reflsrn of an accident while riding a motor 
cycle under circim)9t"nce8 •<vhich were net in any way peculiar 
tc the military service." 

The stipulation sho-srs that the insured met his death 

while he was attempting to suppress a riot engaged in >ietween 

mutinous colored trof^pa and white civilians. While deceased's 



action v/aa, we aasuire, in acme way connected with his military 
service, it cnnnot be said that it wss a nccessp.ry result thereof. 
He appears to have met his death ?(hil e in the performance of police 
dutv in Quelling a civic riot. It is not asserted that the death 
of dece?»9«»d was hreufrht ahout by n cpuae necessarilv the result 
of his beinf^ drafted into the federal aiilitary service, nor was 
it caused Viv the wer then pendinr between the United States Gov- 
erutent and the finperial Oenaan GoTernniCTit. Ihe incidents which 
led to thf. death of the insured, that is, the riot between mutin- 
ous troops find civil inns, were in no sense, so far as the stipu- 
lation shows, inseparably connected with the fact that this rmtion 
was at war with Genntmy. 

The case of Redd v. American Central Life Ins . Co ., 
200 Ko . >pp. 552, is essentially sirnilPr to the present case* 
The only substantial difference being that in that caa<» the applica- 
tion for the policv contained n clause which provided that nctive 
service in the airmy or navy without the written consent of the com- 
pany would Invalidate the pelicv in part, ^e insured died while 
in service at Camp Punston, Kansas. In deciding the case the 
court said: 

"The kind of active service that we nre deal inir with 
is, Pccor-^inp to *he rrliev, service 'in timp of vfsr.' Is one 
who hss entered a niilit«rv traininf? carip anri is there in the 
course of training in th»» rpp'^iral dersrtnient of the army, 
thousands of Bsiles from the scene of hostilities, to be re- 
garded as in active service in ti-e army in time of war*? ^e 
think not. 3uch a person is certainly not 'before an enemy 
in time of -«t' or engaged in 'operations carried en in his 
presence, ' nor is he in 'the perfcraiance of duty against an 
en emy . ' 

■The policy provides that in order that defenr!ant may 
not be liable for the full volue of the rolicy, death must be 
from service in war. This Fi*cvisicn taken in connection with 
that in the application shows that the application pnd policy 
mean th-et the service mfnticned was to be in rrerations by 
which -lar is carried on before the enemy; that is, the service 
one renders when enpoped cr assisting in actual host illties." 

Clearly it cannot be held in the present case thiat de- 
ceased came to his death while engaged in a war service, construing 



the Rxause in question more strictly against the insurer. Phoenix 
Insurance Co . v. Grove . 215 111. 299. 

It does not seem reasonahle to hold that the clause 
was intended to protect the defendant company frcin loss due to 
hazards ordinarily disconnected with war service. Ihe stipula- 
tion shows that the officers and directors of the defendant company 
had full knowledge of deceased's connection with the National Guard 
of Illinois. The clause in question does not provide for rendering 
a policy null and void merely because an insured may becftiie engaged 
in military service, hut it expressly provides that such result is 
not to be "brought about unless the insured becomes so engapjed in 
time of war. 

It is our opinion that in a case \a^ere it is shown 
that the insured with full knowledge on the part of the defendant 
was at the tiice the policy was issued and for a considerable time 
thereafter engaged in military service, the clause should be held 
to mean that the death, before action on the policy cm Id be de- 
feated, should be shown to have been brought about in some manner 
as a result of an exist inc war. An act of Congress api^roved 
June 3, 1916, known as the National Defense Act, provides for 
placing the national Guard troops under federal, as well as state 
control. Under this act the insured took oath in JJovember, 1916, 
to "wsll and faithfully ciisoharge the duties of the office in the 
National Gua'-d of the United States amd o^ the Statef of Illinois." 

¥r« Saunders, a witness for plaintiff, was at this 
time a director and secretary of the defendant c<wpany, and his 
testimony discloses that he knew the defendant for twenty years or 
more; that both he, the witness, and Fr. Pierce, who during 1916 
and 1917 was a director and treasurer of the defendant company, 
were well aware of deceased's connection with the military ser- 
vice; and this same witness. l!r. Saunders, testified as to facts 



;ox Joannoc 



from which it would not \>e unreasonable to conclude that this 
knowledge aras known to the witness and to Kr^ Pierce after in- 
sured had "been drafted ihto the service of the federal government in 
July, 1917. 

On the whole record we think the judgment ought to "be 
affirmed' The decided cases are not quite clear as tn what acta 
or knowledge constitute a waiver of a provision which requires 
consent in writing before an insured may ■become connected with 
military service in time of war. Phoenix Insurance Company v. 
Grove . 21S 111. 299. We prefer, however, to rest our decisioii 
upon our belief that the clause under consideration was drafted 
by the defendant company for its own benefit and that when ap- 
plied to the facts of the present case in view of the admitted 
knowledge on the part of defendant's officers, it should be held 
that it was intended thereby to protect defendant frrsn loss in 
the event of insured's death arising out of circumstanceB con- 
nected with the carrying on of war; that deceased's death is 
not shown by the stipulation or otherwise to have been caused 
by any act or fact necessarily connected with the world war, 
and that it is not shown by the record that his death vas not 
fhe result of accidental causes existing independent of hie 
eaiployment in the service of the United States. Hialone v. State 
Life Ins . Co.. 202 Mo, App. 499. 

The judgment of tlie Municipal court will be affii."nied.

|lf692.40. i^ef eodsat appeals. 

Iha suit w«B lirought on r written etmtraet tuider 
iriiieh the plaintiff was employed f:i « stated sal;^;^ ani in 
Additi^ thereto \% en the grosa sales of the defendant 
eeapeny in excess of §50,000 per year, to be paid in stoek 
ef the Cflttpany. The eontreot, ehieh was dated Jnly SO, 1914, 
was to eentioae for a ^riod of tiro years and was to he re- 
newed for a like period en failure of either party to giire 
notice of an intention to terminate it. the eridenee shows 
thi>t plaintiff was esployod hy defendant under the contract 
for three years and seven aonths. £o clais is mde ^a to the 
laat, or fourth, year of the oentr&et. It is urged that the 
defendant has refnsed, though often requested, to deliTer 
•took, HZ agreed by it under the contract. The exeese sales 
•f the corepany above 150,0^^0 ^r <%ach year of the three years 
Asriag vhleh plaintiff was eaploysd under tiie oontri<ct, anount 
\m a total of $169,240.70, one per eent of this m^unt is 
91, 692.40, and the Jury a8Bea;.>ed plaintiff's danages at this 
latter sua; thereby, in effect, finding that the atoek nf the 
ooMfsiiy wije worUi $100 per share. 

The evidenee discloses witii ut naoh fnteation that 
during thre<!^ years the plaintiff had perfomed all tbrnt was

rtt^ired of him under tH« terms of the centr&ct, and there is 
eridenes in the record vhieh warrants the tsfmclusicn th&t elthnugn 
often requested to do so* and Although the sales of the defeiid«at 
had hoen for considerable buks above *S0,000 each year, no real 
effort WH8 erer R&dc to render a istatement of ^cofnint to tJM 
plaiatiff or to turn over to his stock of the company vViidft the 
evidenee shoirs he was entitled to under the terns of the eoatr^ot* 

On the question of the value of the stoek the evidence 
is not by any aeans, «» asserted, all one vsy. 1i,h9 plaintiff 
testified that Jtr. Gentry, president of defendant coaspany, trtien 
appealed to by plaintiff for a statement of account, replied that 
the stoek vc^s vorth more th«ai par and th»t he, <^entry, woild buy 
the $toek back or pay the eoneciasiOB in o&«h* 

Thf^re is aa^le evidence in the re cord to show that 
plaintiff hftd performed valuable servieea for the defendant and 
that it desired to rotain hia in its enploy. 

The testimony that the stoek wc^s worthless la not 
nncontrodicted in the evidence, a& &H»erted. Aside frois state* 
ments ef Gentry to plnlntiff, there ia evidenee tending to show 
thet the defend<ait ha/i sulasitted financial stetenents to a bank 
froRi which it was not unreasonable to ecAclade th&i th« stock was 
aotually worth flOO a share. The trial judge did not err in 
adsitting these statenents In evidentw; they tended to prove 
that the defendant cnmpnny vas operating at a profit and th&t 
its assota were much great<!r than ita liabilities. 

There is no aerit in the contention that this plain* 
tiff «r.s not entitled to recovpr for the services rendered by 
hi» during the third yesr of the contract. The evidence shows 
thRt after plcintiff hnfl fnlthfully perfonsed services required 
•f him under the oontrret for a period of three years and seven 
■entha he wm unable to obtain frosi the defend^at aay atateaent

not required to ceiitinue to perfone hie promises under the c<m*

this rule does net apply to a c&»e «here the evidence ehotns that 
the other party to the eenteaet ha« cniKRltted a lurefich thereof, and 
where, as in the present case, it f irly appears that no genuine 
att«Bpt WB.B siA'^e to pay for serriees rendered under the contract .

case is for services actually rendered. Yalt v* y inaaBan , 138

the pleintlff charged in hie deelaratiea that 
the defendnni had aasaulted hiat and cflaositted a battery

dirty water and suda; th«t the assault va« willful and 
without any juatif ieatiea. The ease was tried before a 
jury whioh returned a Terdiot upon which the judoaeat 
was catered* 

The reason urged for reversal requires ia the 
aaia a weighing of the evidenee introduced upon the trial. 
Ho appearance has been filed here on behalf of the plaia* 
tiff. Se have ezeaiaed the record, hnvcTer, and it is 
flur opinion that the issues were properly submitted to 
the Jury aad that there is sufficieat evidence to author* 
iM the Terdict returned by it* 

The oTidenoe introduced for the plaintiff, if 
true, discloses that he ». s peaoeebly pasr^iai; out fr<ai

as ault upon hia. This eTidenee tends to proTO that at

for a period tf three ^ronths. ti« far as the plaintiffs' st^itemeni

parties are questicmed, th t of th« diurge for expenses to Lincoln, 
llel»r«« ^5*00 charge for the saenple case and an alleged osfisslon 
on the part of defendant to give plaintiffs eredit for S^ eonir.isftions, 
The teetkeeny on the question of the soaiple case is« to say ths 
least, disputed in the e?ideno«« Touching the natter of the auto 
trip to Lincoln, Kehraska, defendant testified that the oecupants 
of the ear were eaeh to he eharged, under an ai?reesi0nt« the eum of 
.^12.00 for the trip and ttint this am'^nt had be^n paid therefor* 
Plaintiffs insist that defendant wu.s prnperly indebted for one 
quarter of the entire eost of the trip* 

The defendant testified th»t he was employed by <Xohn A* 
S^ilueter. one of the plaintiffs, who Introduced his to e Kr« Konre, 
plaintiffs* Iowa state manf«ger« ^Att Infonsed hlH that he , tfoore, 
was earning $bQC to %60Q a month. That later Mr. Sehlueter promised 
defendant that hs would furnish him with mesas of tranispertation; 
that he, coilueter, wnuld furnish defendant with an automobile vhieh 
defendfuat cnuld later pttrehase frmi the firm en in8t»llmente. The 
defendant further testified that the plaintiffs had failed to fur* 
Bish the aut<SBobilc <is agreed; thnt he wrh thereby unable to procure 
business for plaintiffs and he insists th^t through delay md in 
the expenditure of considcrahle sums of money for transportation 
and other expenaes he was entitled to thfr &et-off claimed by him. 

It will serrs no purpofte to discuss in detail the eTidenee 
as shown by the record. In our opinion there was sufficient erideBOS 
to warrant ths Terdict of the Jury and ths Judgment of the trial

MR. JUSfZCS OS Via DFilVSaiSD THS OPIKIOS Of THB COUKf . 

The pl«istiff brftughfc a repleTin action against de* 
feadant, Pcail Korshakt doing business ».fi Illinois irr^wners 
^•clety, to rseoTcr a diamond which without her authority *n» 
taken fron her j^Bsession by her eon and pawned with the de* 
feadaAt. fhe defendant on sertrioe of the writ refused te &lf9 
up the dimoad contained therein and the action ves changed to 
Mie in troTer. 

An exfloiiBatiea of the eTidenoe heard upon the trial 
as it appears in the jaibstract of record, f^a also in the record, 
discloses that the defendant, Korehalc. received froB plaintiff *s 
sea a diasioad and that part of the sun paid therefore was de* 
posited by the seller in a bank. $'36i of this sum was reeorered 
by the plaintiff frost the bank, and she, in oomp«ny with her 
kasbsad and police officers, went to defendant's place of 
businean and tendered this aaiount to hiat and deaianded of his 
the ring and diamend. He refused to accept the money or to 
retara the property. 

Cn tl\e trial a Judgsent for |I20C wi^^s awarded plain- 
tiff aad the defendant appeals.

tends to show that this dlsasosd wos aet the oae takoa frm the 
plaiatiff • ^Bader the elrcuBtstanees it vouXd have heea iaiposeible 
for the plaintiff to prove the daat^ces sustaiaed hy YtfT thr^^ogh 
the loos of the di»ioad« had she been retjaired to produce it in 
eourt for ozHBinatioa and valuation by her expert witneoeee* 

the record kept by th« defendant of the trannaetioa 
with plaiatiff's ann ehovn thj>t he purchased for thfi sun of #600 
a diamond of 3*l/ti cnrats eeigtit. The testixioay tends to shev 
that tte diaaead taken frtm plaintiff as a white dieaoad of this 
•ise, idiile the one produced in court by the defendant «''»« of 
•■aller sise and apparently of poorer quality. It was not error 
to shev by conpRrison the differenoe in value between the diamond 
received by hia and the one he produced in e-^rt* 

Ihe evidence shews that the defendant received the 
diauMid and tht't its value wbs not over »esiiaa ted by the jjury. 
If it is true, as oertain te^tinony tends to show, thnt he did 
not produce in court the diamond < etaally received by ia, then 
he shnuld not be pemittfid in profit by the teehaie&l diffi<Riltj 
caused by his own action* 

So error was eonaaitted by f»xcladin« te»tiaoay which 
tended to prove that the defendant was one aeabi^r of ® p ertnc^r* 
ship. He filed his appearance in the eaase as the defendant doing 
business as Illiaois Pawaers •^oei^^ty* Se took issue upon the 
•tateaents aade in the stateaent of claia. He plea wi>s filed 
setting' up a partnership or that there had been a niejeinder or 
aon*Jolader of parties defendant* la this state of the record 
the trial cnirt rightly ruled that evidence with relation to tho 
partnership w .e iaaaterial, and so also with ref ereaee to tha

It is oontcajded by the defeudRint that the d^Lm^ee assessed 
W9V exoeesive. 

Considerable eTldonoe Kss Introdueed as to the vulus 
•C the household goods, ti^nd seeae to h&re been put in on the

tlM dUBs«es sttfiered by the pl&intiff . Stet, hois^ever, w*s &b erro- 
«lOBs tneory. as we Im.r9 already said the plaintiff was entitled 
%• aotual dsBagss to her property, if any vere shown, &nii to 
•asi^lary or punitlTs dua&ges by reason of the wilful trespass. 

fhm household ^ods wsre put la storage, and oould, prs>otleally 
lataot, heve been obtained by the plaintiff from tiws storage ware- 
ftmse. aoae of the things the r'i6>lntiff did tajce out; the rest 
■he left and never saw fit to take. Ste ttttal vslns of ull 
%lM Household ijoods was givsn, aU the way from 440,00 to #2000.00. 

The evideiuie shows that the pl&intiff received infontfttloa 
fts to where her goods were stored; th^t she wont to the warshouse 



Y. 
and oasQially examined them. It is har testimony that she xiever 
took away froa the vvarehoaee aojr oi the goods that were stored 
except some of the children's oluthes. 

AsBttaing aa we do « believing that the oyidenoe justifies it - 
that the defendant was guilty of a wilful trespass, it follows that 
the plaintiff was entitled to an award not only lor aotui^l damag-es 
to her property but exemplary or ponitlTe das^ges* 4nd, turther, 
inasmuoh as the aotual doioage to the personal property wag ss^ll, 
as far as the eTidence shows whut the damage w&s, and as the evidence 
shows that she could have taken taom the storage warehouse whatever 
had been placed there by the defendant, it follows, t^t practically 
all the amount alxo<?<ed as damages In the original verdict must be 
•ensidered to be piinitive* 

In iJearlove v« Herrington, 17 ill. 2&l.the oourt eaid; 

"Me have looked into the testimony as it api^e&^rs in the record, 
carefully, and it discloses a case where un entry vma faade upon 
a tenant, by appellants, acting lor the iiiUdlord, befure his 
term had expired, other tenants put in, and uoTainiori exercised, 
by appellants over the goods a.nd ciit^ttela of uppeiiee, removing them 
from one room to other rooms, and aepriving uppeilee of the beneficial 
enjoyment of the dwelling house, so necessary to the ooalort ef 
himself and fatally, ^ito. treating him with the greatest indignity 
and uls ritjhts with contempt, '^** it o nnot be said that 
one thousand dolltrs d.>.mage8 would be excessive, if the plaintiff 
was the tentint of a magnificent mansion, and iso taoleated as 
the evidence diselo^es in this case. Shall the itoot that the 
pj-alntilf is old and poor, and comparatively an insignif icent 
figure in the great swarm of human society, subject him to a 
diminished Lieasure of justice? uhen the larieaeneas of the «*ct 
is considered, and the circamatanues, we c^^n not think the 
damages are excessive, or milord any evidence thsit the jury did not 
take a cool and deliberate view of the ease. If it was true, 
that the pltiintiff was holding over, in defiance of his ieusors, 
they would have no right to take the law ia their owb hands, and 
thus redress their wrongs.** 

She question then arises, was the final Judgment of ,|17fi0*00 

excess IveT She appraisal of exemplary or punitive damages under 

smoh olro UBS tunc es is exceeuiugly difficult. 'i'hor& vre no &et 

standards by which to formulate a judgment. It is a matter 

peeullarly within the province uf the jtury. Considering the 

illegal trespass, the taking out of all the houuehold goods of the 

defendant, their disposition, ner humiliation una attendant discomiitur

21I.A. 657 



MR. JUSTICE 0*C0N80H dellrered the opinion of 



the eo ur t« 



Plaintiff l>routjht suit against the Srwln Greer 
Atttomo1>il«» Company, a corporation* The Sr«er College of 
Itotoring, a corporation* and Paul G. Itoineraann to recover 
damages for personal injuries. The suit was dieoissed as 
to the two last naaed defen>;.'int8 and there was a ▼erdict and 
Judgaent against the ISrwin Greer Autosiebile Company for 
|llSd»oo, to reverse which this appeal is prosecuted. 

The evidence tends to shew that Hftinemami* who 
lived in Weodwerth* Wis. cpjae to ?JaXang» in June, 1918, to 
buy an autozaobile and for this purpose drove in his .-'ord 
ear to the place of busines;: of the (^ality Rebuilt Car Co. 
on Mi chigan orenue near S4th street. He vas there shown a 
eecond*h;ind liudson car. Per the purpose of inducing a sale 
one Burnett, a demonstrator of ears, took Heinemann in the 
Hudson and drove hia around for a siiort tine deneastrating 
the quality and condition of the oar. Aft<?r th(>y r^^turned 
Heineraann statea that he «c ui d look aro ad at ether sale*- 

reoas but «ould probably r^^tum. Later on h«> did return and 

told the saleBoan in charge, one Carle, that he would buy 



-2* 

the UudsoB ear for the price asked, $75C.cO, upo» thf con- 
dition that the seller would proYide him isrith an instructor 
to teaeh hia how to run the ear as he was unfamiliar vith 
the operation ef that particular make of autoBiobile. This 
wm» agreed to and eineraann gave Carle his check for $450.00. 
The halance of the purchase price was to lie ^^aid by Heinemann 
turning in his Ford at an ai;reed Taluation of ;^300. OC. 
Carle gare Heinemann a receipt or inroice in which it vas 
stated that the "(quality Hehuilt Car Co., Unincorporated, 
sold to iieinei«ann*> th' car in quoRtion. Carle stated that 
he had not then an instructor but that if Heinemann vouid return 
an hour later one wo Id be at hie serTice. Heinemann left and 
returned at about 5:00 e*ckodc in the evening. Thereupon Carle 
told hiB to go with Burnett to th^ir other place of business 
on Ir'abasH aveflue near 15th street. Burnett droTC the Hudson 
and Ueineniana the 70 rd to the Wabash avenue address. Heinemann 
there sai^ iSrwin Greer, pr<='sldent of the defendant eoapaay, 
who asked him where he had purehas>'d the ord and upon being 
adTised Greer inTOStigated to asoertaia whether Heinemann was 
the rightful owner, lie also looked into his financial stand* 
ing. He satisfied himself that Heinemann owned thf Ferd and 
then O.K«*d. ths ct^dc for $450.00 which Mineraann had previoaa- 
I7 giwen to Carle. Greer th«>reupon executed and delivered te 
Heinemann a receipted iaveice showing that "The Eirwin Greer 
Automobile Oompanjr isold to i\ c. Heineiaana* the TSadsea Car. 
It was also recited la the invoice that all tales were eubjo^ct 
to acceptance by Krwla Greer. A few days thereafter, when 
the ehedc had gone through the banks, Greer, in accordance 
with their custom, made out arrather sales invoice in Bubstan- 
tially thp same language and mailed it to Heincmana at «ood- 
warth. Wis. Immediately after Ureer had ^.K. *« th' cheek and 



.3- 

satlsflcd hia8«lf that H«in«iMtnn vas the vimer of the ford 
Burnett changed the Uiaoonein lieense from the Ford to the 
BudsoB and Ureer told Burnett to take Holnemann out In the 
Hudson and instruct him in the operation of it. Burnett 
drore th« oar to a residential oeetion of th« eitjr and then 
Heinemana took the wheel. Undc v the direetione of Burnett 
he drove around for about 30 minutes and waa instructed in the 
operation of it. After they had been driving for aoae tioa 
Heiaemann endeavored to turn the oar around in Calomet av«i«e 
but apparently last oontrol of it. It ran up on the side* 
waUe and struck snd injured plaintiff. Bhe was taken to a hos- 
pital and Heinotann was placed under arrest. •\fter tlile suit 
had been filed Heinemann paid plaintiff I1158.CC and received 
from her a covenant not to sue. 

fbere is a dispute In ^e evidence as to whether 
the sale was made i^n ci nditien that inetruetion in operating 
the oar would be given Heinemann, and else as to what took 
place Just prior to the accident. Heinnaarm tf'stifi^^d that 
he was to have moh inetruetion « and that he was uifaaailiar 
with the city* and that there w«8 a street oar trade and a 
considerable auaber of persons in the street near whe^e the 
turn waft to be laade; that he requested Burnett to take the 
wheel as he was afraid he could net aake the turn* but that 
Baraatt told him how to shift th? gears and hew to laake the 
turn. On th'^ther hand there was teetiaoqy to the effect that 
the sal* was made without any promise to furnish Heinemann 
instruction and tnat after the sale was made 3urnett went 
with iif'ineiaann, at the letter's request, to show him how to 
operate the oaohiae as a aere favor. Burnett testified that 
when thHy reached the place wh"re the turn wes tr be made 



-4. 

in CaluBAt areRu* he requested Heinemann to let his make the 
turn but that tne latter refused. 

It vas stipulated thst no question wo Id be raised 
ia this court as to the amount of th** daissges. Defendent, how* 
erer, erm^ee that the cs=le of the autoawbile was m».de by the 
QiHRlity uebuilt lar Z'.JKpejxy and not Vy the defendp.nt; ti»t the 
v^ttfillty Cowpany wp? uainoorpc rated and ewned by Krwin Greer, the 
president of the defenuant corporation; that the Imsinese was 
separate and dietinet fre«i thet of defendant except that the 
books of acooust of the <ia«lity Coispany were kept by the de- 
fendant at its pace of busineee on v:ahaeh avenue; that in 
these cireuiaetaneec defendant wo -Id be in no way liable for 
the injurlee susteined by plaintiff. 

We think the eviuenee would not warrant the con* 
elusion drawn It^ the defendant, and after a careful eoneider^ 
ation of all the evidence we think that, in the view oost favor* 
able to the defenaant, the most that ean be oaid is that 
whether the ear was sold by the defendant was a question for 
tho Jury. But wo are also of the cpinit.n that the {»ntea* 
tioB now made is an afterthought, for upon an ezamiaaticn of 
the reoord it appears that at no time during the trial was it 
oontend«>d that the enle of the sCudson ear was not made by 
the dcfenr'ant. Xiiie appears; thro«i«';hout the trial, in the ta]t» 
inc oT evidPnoe, in the raotione of the d«f«»ndtant tc inEtruct 
at the close of plaintiff *8 evidence and again at the dloso of 
all the evidenne, and fron the instructions aski»d by d^/'enciant, 
s<^e of which were given and ttcuo refused. At the dLoso of 
plaintiff's ease oounscl for defendant moved to disaiss be* 
eaiaa* there was a variance between tho allesatioas of the d»» 
elaratioa and the evidence. Counsel stated that the "evidence 



-5- 

shftwa that the car was being operated hy the owner, Xher* 
was no relatittnship of mastttr and serrnnt. Mr. Heinffiaaim 
vac entirely indepena<='nt. Th* owner of the ear had a right 
to do as h« aaw fit. Ha paid for it. The oar was no longer 
uader our dircetioa and the evidence shovs dearly that he 
vaa opcratiag the ear and that our eerrant was not operating 
the car. * * » The eyidoaee shows thjit this ear ««s operated 
at the time of ih. aeeideat y»y one aeiaemaim. vhile the d»» 
elaratien alleges it waa operated hy the Brwin Greer Auto- 
aobile ;;oK|>aay. * Ihis motion vas ren«nred at the done of all 
the fvidexi as. It is ohvicue, therefore , th«,t on the trial 
•f the eaea there was no eontenticn made the^i defendant did ziet 
sell th. cur to ieinemann, nnd it fellevs that such a point 
oannet be urged in this court for the first tiiae. We are 
further of the opinion that xrhether l^e sale was tr^de en een-> 
dition that Hein«%ann be furnished inotruetions in th*? opera* 
tion ef the maeilne was a question for Uie inxjr and we thistle 
the eridenee vae sufficient to sustain their finding. 

Defendant also argues that it, is not liable beeanse the 
demonstrator er iastruoter, Burnett, was net its agent but was 
esEpleyed 1^ the ()pality Unbuilt Oar ximpaigr* Jtnd \.hnt there 
could be BO liability in any event for the reason that at and 
before the tine ef the aoddent the &;r belonged to and was 
under the eaeeLusiT* eontrol ef Heinenaan* and cren if there wrs 
any negligence en the part ef Burnett* it could net be attributed 
te defendant even if it were held that Burnett was in its em- 
ploy. Upea a oonsideration ef the eridenoe «e think that the 
■set that «in be aaid is that whetner Burnett was in the eB^>loy 
ef the defendant er ef the (Quality Rebuilt Car Ccmpany vas also 
a question for the Jury. Ihey found in farer of the plaintiff 
sad we think the finding is fully varruited by the eridenM. 



• 6- 

We are alM ef tbe opinion that whetlier Burnett was negli* 
gent at and before the time of the accident and whether 
he was th«i engaged in the furtherance ef his master* e, the 
defendant* ■> business were questions of fact for the Jury 
to determine, I'he eTidenoe tends te shew that the defend** 
ant agreed in consideration of the purchase of the car by 
Heinemarm to furnish him instructions in the operation ef 
it. In these circumstances ve think ve would not be at all 
warranted in disturbing the finding of the jury to the effect 
that at and before the time of the accident Burnett was a 
serrant ef the defenaant and that he was engaged in the 
furtherance ef the master's business. Such being the case 
defendant vould be liable for Burnett's negligence. This 
is an elementary rule of lav. 

It is also said that the court mrrmi in giTing 
iastructicne submitted on behalf of plaintiff and refusing 
memm of those sulmiitted by defendant. So error ie pointed 
out and In these eiroumstanceo, of course, it is not our 
dtt^ to go through the record in search of erroneous irulings 
on the instruetioas. That is the duty ef counsel. HoweTer« 
we hare examined the instructions and find the contention 
untenable. Defendant does point out, howerer. that there 
vas error in glring instruction 6 on behalf of plaintiff. 
This instruction was on the question of damages and we think 
it was proper. City of Ohioa^ v,. Baboook| 143 m. 3Sd.

iJR. JUGTICE TEOKSGN del ivr-red the CT>i'^ion of the 



court 



The rlpintiff IsrrUf^ht this action for office rent, 
allescpd te >>» (^tie from th«» iflfpndnnt for Vnf 'ncn^hs of 
itugust to Ko-?ea;l>cr inclusire, 1917. Bie iasues were submitted 
t« the court without a ,1ury nnri « fin^in^ -wae mscle for the 
plaintiff «nd .ludpirent entered in her faTor for HOO, from 
^ich the defendant has nppenl ed. 

The sin-fMrent of olnisi declared thnt the parties 
entered intc t*- written 1 e»R<» for the ppried of one year "be- 
rlnniwr toy 1, 1917. *t e ncnthl y rental of §50 and ttiat the 
defendant entered intc ponsesetcn of the pre'^ls^s »»nd peid 
rent up te nn'i including July ^ut not thereafter. 

The plaintiff testified that the defendant applied for 
the offlca eometime in ^rll, 1917, nnd aaid he would eipn a 
lease for cne year; that she told him she would hare the leas* 
drawn up b- her n«ph«w and that h«» eoul d ftet it fTTOm him and he 
said h#» would; that she had her nephew prepare the lease in du- 
plicate* iihe sifoned the lease and left both copies with her nerhew» 
ready for the defendant to sign. The deferidant toolt poeeession

.2. 
of the off lev on Magr Isi «md ]ii»Vf>d out lat* in July. 

The plitiiltlff *s nvphttv testified that he prej^arftd 
the l«a»« »t plaiatiff*0 dir^otion -^au tViat she BiKncd both 
aopi«s; that tb» defenoaat JLooketi over th« Imis* «a4t Mtid hm 
would Btetk it if s^rtftia ehaages v«<!r« «!tid(> nn he aais«;«8t»d; 
that th««« dtumtftt «Rr« mi&m bat th<it tJto defendaat a«nr«r 
•igaad the lefte«, both sopies of whidti hnd JBincft reaained ia 
the poas«esiOB of the witneea. A etenegrapher, vtie ««• not 
at the tiao of the trial, hut had heen in the «npl»jr of the 
plaintiff, teotified ac to tte otOBTttrsAtioa hetvoea the 
parties in April* in vhi ^ih the defenJaat a»id he weuVd eiftH 
a leaae for a /ear. She defendaat denied he h^d ever agraed 
to oi^B a Xoaao for a year hut eaid ho had refused to do so 
»n6 told plaintiff he wanted to rent th^^ of fl -^e lay the aoaUi. 
lo alao d»Bied that he Iwd aade aqjr auggeatioae ahoat oh-^ngen 
la the leaae or told plaiatiff*B nephow he would elgn it if 
eueh <3feHUis«a vore tiade. The plaiatiff waa ^i^kod what, if 
anything, the defeadant had aeid as to why he woulda*t sign 
the leaae and she aaawared, "he vmj^ ze druak he ooalda'ta* 
The OTidftnce ahowod thnt after th«» Inaeeo a«re prepared and 
eigaed hy the plaintiff, they rffitsaiaed in th«» plaintiff's 
offioea, one of ihcr rooae of whio^ was the mihjeet of the 
loaso, in the oaatody of her n«phev. It alao ahowed that the 
—oiMt tiie defendant i^id dnrimt the ilaa ho oeoupiod the offieo 
in queatioB was ^25 per awnth. 

The teetiaoay of the plaintiff anc her «i tneattos* 
although flatly oontradioted hy the d«^fen<iant, waa apparently 
belicTod hy the trial oourt. Oa that teatijaoaor, wo are of 
the opinioa that the oourt eorroetly fouad thst the pariiea 
had OB tared iatv a Talid writ ton leaaa. Aooording to the 
teati■B^y the dofoadaat agreed to aiga a lease for a year aad 



-5- 



vhen plaintiff said Bh«» would have the lenses T^rsparpd and 
siifn th«n and 1 *av« there isrlth h*»r nephev Hvr\ that defimdfnt 
could get th«n frcm him, the (Iwfwi'lsnt aaiil h* tfould. "J^e 
leases w«r# sc Trepar*"^ pnri 1 pf t with plaintiff's nephew, 
which, under the defendant's apreen^jent, was a aiifficient 
delivery. Heyrmldf , v, Greenbaum . 80 111. 416, ]?ollowing 
this, the defendant actually toffk posiaession of the prejfises 
covered hv the It^ase and occupied them and paid rent for J'everal 
iDcnths. 2he lease tijen beoaiHe hinflinp en defendant, althou^ 
he never signed it. iaftragiano v. Villani, 117 III. App . 378. 

The lease was for a tew. heginrdng ^^y 1. 1917, and 
ending April 30, 1916, and was therefore sn agreespnt to he 
p<»rform*d within a y«^r and ia not within the statute of 
frauds, ae the defendant conten-ls. The fact that the de- 
fendant a<i:re»d to execute a 'vritten le^sf? for a vf^ar, some tioe 
in ^ril , dop8 not alt.°r th<» r^ltrjatlon. 'Hie plaintiff is 
seeking tc held the defendant on th«» vrrft^en l^eee, - net on 
his prtMlse to erecnte it. Whon the plaintiff had the lease 
prepared and ehp slpned it r>nA 1 pf t it with th«» p*>rsr«n, with 
whom the defendant agreed It might be 1 pf t, for him (the 
defendant) to secure -nd sign, and the defendant took possess- 
ion, the agreen<''nt which bwcsme binding on the defendant was the 
lease and not his agreement to enter into it. in effect, there 
was a delivery to the defendant r'nd the defendant h^»ving gone 
into possession it becaJse binding upon hiai though he never 
signed it. 

The defendant's liability is not altered b ' the fact

DAISY H. ROTi^SSLL, fomerly 
Caisy M. Hart^. 

Appellant, J" ] AFPSAL FROM 

MUmCIPAL COaRT 

\ / 

JOHM L. TAYLOR, intiri dually / 
and as executor of the estate 

of ELIZABETH COHDSLL, deceased, S% Ct "% T h /^r'O 

Appellee. Zai \A. 65 O 

\ / 
IR. JUSTICE THOHSOF b£LIVS[RirD THS OflMIOlT OP THS COURT. 

The plaintiff brought this action of replevin against 
the defendsmt individually and as executor, to recover possession 
of two notes and two certificates of deposit idiich she claimed 
had been given to her hy the deeeased during her lifetisse* The 
action was later changed to trover* The issues were tried by 
the court without a Jury, resulting in a finding and Judgment 
for the defendant, to reverse triiich» Uie plaintiff has perfected 
this appeal. 

Elizabeth Condell was somewhat advanced in age and 
was in ill health, and during the last month or two of her life 
was cared for by the plaintiff, hHcm was her niece. Among other 
property she possessed the notes and certificates in question. 
One note was for $1300, in which the plaintiff's father and 
brother were the makers and the ether was for $300, in which 
the plaintiff's sister and her husband were the makers. Both 
notes were drawn to the order of the deceased and were my^r 
indorsed by her. The certificates of deposit, one for $465 
and the other for $100, were likewise never indorsed by the 
deceased* 

About July 1, 1917, the deceased, who l^esided at 
Libertyville, Illinois, sent for Mr. Benjamin Miller, a lawyer.

and requested him to prepare her will providing for the pajasent 
of her dehts and funeral expenses and the erection of a Bonaaent 
in the ceatetery lot, and leaving the halanee of her estate for 
the purpose of estahlishing and maintaining a hospital. He 
prepared the will accordingly and it was duly executed. The 
plaintiff came to care for her aunt about this time and ahout • 
month later the plaintiff called upon Killer at his office and 
•aid Iwr aunt wished him to come and soe her. When Miller saw 
Hias Condell at her homo she told him she wished him to change 
her will as she wished to leave her house and lot to her niece, 
the plaintiff, for her services in caring for her in her illness, 
and Chat she wished her will to remain as it then was in all 
other respects. Miller accordingly prepared another will, leaving 
the house and lot, valued at ahout $4,000sto the plaintiff, and 
except for that change the last will was identical with the first 
one. This was the will idiich was probated. At the time this will 
was exectflRsd Miller talked with Miss Condell and he says she 
specifically stated at that time that she wanted the house and lot 
to go to the plaintiff for her services and she wanted the two 
notes and the two certificates of deposit, together with other 
property she mentioned to go to the hospital fund» Miller then 
asked her where she kept these papers and she designated a buremu 
drawer. He asked her if she thought that was a safe place for 
then and she told him to take an |16,000 mortgage whiidi was there 
and place it in his vault with the will, but to leave the two 
notes and the two certificates of deposit because **I mi^t be sick 
and I might need the money that is in the bank, Z want to realize 
from those notes and I can get money from Mr, Hart if I need it 
and I can draw that money out of the bank there.** A few weeks 
later Miaa Condell died and at that time the notes and certificates

in q[uesiion were in the plaintiff's j^ossession and ^e olaiaed 
that her aunt had giren thera to her. The defendant claimed 
that they helonged to the estate and he demanded that the plain- 
tiff deliver th^ to hia as executort threatening to apply for 
a citation against her in ease she did not do so. The plaintiff 

finally put them in the hands of a lawyer iustnteting him not to 

thev 
turn/oyer to defendant without an order of court. Lnter the 

lawyer did deliver them to the defendant without any order having 
he en entered by the court » taking the defendant's receipt for them 
in whi^ it was provided that the notes and certificates were de- 
livered without prejudice to any rights the complainant might have. 
Later the notes and certificates were duly inventoried hy the 
executor, the inventory setting forth that none of them was 
indorsed by the deceased, "by reason thereof title to the same re- 
mained in said Elizabeth Condell and the undersigned, as executor 
of her will, claims the same as property of her estate. Said notes 
and oertificates were in the possession of said Daisy Hart at th« 
time of the death of said Elizabeth Condell, but were turned over 
by her to the undersigned, aa executor, on demand, under protest." 
The defendant indorsed the certificates of deposit and deposited 
them in his bank account as executor, and he later started suit 
on the two notes against their respective makers. After demaad 
made on the defendant in the plaintiff's behalf, for the return 
of the notes and oertificates to her, she started this action. 

In support of her appeal, the plaintiff contends that 
the only q:uestion involved is idiether title to negotiable paper 
can pass by delivery without endorsement. Rather, the question 
is whether, under all the facts shown by the evidence, the title 
to the notes and certificates in question, did pass to the plain- 
tiff, though without the endorsement of tho deceased. Defendant 



n 



j-i 



dees net oontend that title ooald not pass without that sit- 
doTseaient, but that the evidenee shows that it did not* Th« 
<ia«8tion is " did the plaintiff come into possession of the 
notes and certificates hy Tirtue of a gift of the paper to her 
hy the deoeased - or did she not? Xhe trial court found sh« 
did not* 

The plaintiff contends that the trial court adnitted 
iaproper eyidenoe on whieh the Judgment appealed froB was based* 
The plaintiff cannot conplain of the testisony of the witness* 
Mrs. Fry, for hsr motinn to strike out that testimony was 
allowed, the court saying, "^hat she testified to, I will strila 
out*" Plaintiff objected to the testimony of the witness £/!iller 
^eceuse he was attorney for the estate of Elizabeth Condell and 
a trustee and director, under the will, of the hospital fUnd with 
eertain fees therein fixed for his serrices* In our opinion. 
Miller was a coaipetent witness. He did not come within the 
proTisions of see« 2 of the Eridenee Act, as the plaintiff 
contends . 

It is the opinion txt the majority of the court, that 
under the authority of Martin t* Martin, 174 111., 371, it haring 
been shown that the plaintiff had possession of the securities 
in question prerious to and at the time of the death of her aunt, 
such possession of the securities, though unendorsed, must be 
considered as prima facie evidence of her ovnership of them, and 
therefore the defendant had no right to disposBOss her and now 
has no right to retain the securities without orer-ceming that 
presumption by contrary proof* We do not consider that tke eases 
to which the defendant has called our attention, in contending 
the contrary, are in point* In »hea y* Doyle , 65 111* App., 471, 
citing Bamum y. Held, 136 111., 388, it appears that the one 
claiming ownership of an unendorsed note, as against the estate

•§» 



of the d«e«ased payee, vas given poeseasien of it for the par- 
pose of collection* In that ease it was held that "the nere un- 
explained poBsession" of the note hy the claiamnt was insofficient 
to rehat the presumption of ownership in the estate. In holding 
that tho presumption of ownership is in the estate, the court in 
that ease followed the Barnam casoe Bat in that case the one 
elaiaing ownership of the securities ia question, as against 
the deeedent*8 estate, noTer had possession of th«si. The defendant 
has also called our attention to Millard t« Millard , 221 Ill.» 93* 
In that ease, it was also shown that the one nHno was claiming the 
securities in dispute, as against the estate, nerer had exclusiTO 
possession of them, hut that, on the contrary, the deceased had re- 
tained possession of them and had done a number of things on the 
basis of his exelusiTO ownership of the securities suhsequent to 
the time the claimant contended there had heen a gift to her. 

In the opinion of the majority of the court the 
presumption of ownership of these notes and certificates in the 
plaintiff was not OTercome hy the evidence submitted in behalf of 
the defendant. The only evidence that mig^t be considered as 
tending to overcome that presumption, was the evidence of Miller 
to the effect that the deceased had told him» at the time of the 
execution of the last will, that she wsnted these securities to 
go to the hospital fund* But this evidence could not be con- 
sidered sufficient to overcame the presumption of ownership in 
the plaintiff, it having been established that the securities had 
come into her possession before her aunt died* The remark of the 
deceased, testified to by Miller, was made seme three or four 
weeks prior to her death. It may well be that during that 
period she concluded to give these notes and certificates to her 
niece, the plaintiff* That her intention to have these securities 






. , iJiJazM^ I 



S« into the hospital fUad was not very definitely fixed, even 
at the tiae she aade the remark testified to by Miller, is 
shown by the fact that in the tame conversation Miller says that 
the deceased told him to take an $18,000 aortsage and place it 
in his vault for safe** leaping, hut to leave the notes and 
osrtificates in her hareau drawer, as she might want to realize 
on them. It should further be noted that the witness Hiller, 
who was called by the defendant, testified in his direct 
examination, in answer to questions put to him by counsel for 
the defendant, that before the will was admitted to probate the 
plaintiff had told him that these certificates had been given 
to her by her aunt and asked whether it was necessary to have 
them appear in the estate. The defendant, having brought out 
that testimony, is not in a position to complain of it and it 
furnishes BC»e evidence to explain the plaintiff's possession 
of these papers at the time of her aunt's death. 

The oontentions of the defendant in the case at bar 
might be tenable if it were shown that l^e plaintiff did not 
have possession of these papers until after the death of her 
aunt. It is clearly shown, however, that the plaintiff had 
complete possession of the papers some days b<r^fore her aunt 
died, for her sister testified that some time during the week 
previous to her aunt*s death, the plaintiff turned the papers 
ever to her and that she, in turn, gave them to her father for 
•afe-keeping* 

VoT the reasons stated, the judgment of the Municipal 
Court is reversed and Judgment will be entered in this court in 
favor of the plaintiff for #2, 165.

o«r. about three or four feet.** He further testified that he 
left the ear to assist the plaintiff and helped carry her into 
the nearest store where he remained about fifteen minutes, 
"because we called a doctor and we found out her home was 
right nearby * * » We helped to carry her OTer to her own 
iixaam * * » I was gone from the ear all told about fifteen 
or aoTenteen minuteB before I get back.*' On cross-ezasiination 
the conductor was asked, "S© Mrs, Peters was extremely care- 
ful and took hold ef this (center red) with her left hand. 
Is that rightT and he answered, "Tes sir", and then stated 
"Xhen she walked three er four feet away from the ear and th«a 
she fell. * * * She turned and faced south, slipped as she 
was going on the indine, the incline being very wet, th?^re 
was rery great chances for her slipping. ♦ * * fhe was some* 
where along ten feet froM the edge of the walk when she fell 
• * * My ear had nothing to dc with the accident at all aa 
far •• 1 knew. ♦ ♦ » But Mrs, Peters had been a passenger 
and that was the reason X took her husband's name and hera 
and her residenee. » * e The lady didn*t get eff in a hurry, 
nobody rushed her. I wouldn't say she took it sort of eaey 
because it was raining and she would be glad to get under 
shelter. She hurried a little bit."

that purpose, and there was no proof to shew that Lipschutz h«d 

any right or title to su^ propert to cmvey, or that plaia*

brought . 

The oontrelliag foots are these: chafer bnught the

No order for extension of the tiaio within «Aiiob to

the Jud^Bont* after which tine with<^t an order within sueh

( ^^aseers t. Kort^ QenHen Lloyd atewsship C£*« 244 Ill.« 570)

%• do not think i.ht!i the court erred. Dsfendtmt'e dalai of set

Lawrence County by Frank Doll, defendant in error, against 
the Russell and Allison Drainage District, William F. Crews,

damages to Doll's land occasioned by over-flows, whereby 
certain of his crops were destroyed and soil washed from his 
land, alleged to have been caused by plaintiffs in error hav- 
ing constructed a cross-levee, whereby the flood waters of 
the Embarrass River v/ere diverted from their usual course 
and caused to flow over defendant in error's land. A trial 
was had resulting in a verdict and judgment in favor of de- 
fendant in error for the sum of Seventy-five hundred
