The charge of the court in this case was eminently favorable to the plaintiff below, who is plaintiff in error, and, when it is taken in connection with the testimony, it is clear that the jury found a verdict for defendant on the ground that the plaintiff was in fault, and that the defendant's agents used no unnecessary force.

This was an action at law against the defendant in error for the ejection of the plaintiff in error from its cars by its servants. Judgment for defendant. Plaintiff sued out this writ of error. The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
