Syllabus

The only question open in a case brought up under the Act of February 25, 1883, 25 Stat. 693, c. 236, where the judgment does not exceed $5,000, is the question of jurisdiction of the court below.

In the Indian Territory, a right of action survives against a railroad company inflicting injuries upon a passenger which result in death.

When a defendant sued in a circuit court of the United States appears and pleads to the merits, he waives any right to challenge thereafter the jurisdiction of the court on the ground that the suit has been brought in the wrong district.

The case is stated in the opinion.
