TABLE OF CASES REPORTED.
ACTION for negligence, in setting in motion a saw mill without notice
to plaintiff, whereby plaintiff's hands and arms were cut and permanently injured. Plea—not guilty. Defendant gave evidence that the saw was connected with the machinery by a shifting belt; that it was plaintiff's duty, when the machinery was stopped, to disconnect the saw by shifting the belt on to the loose pulley, which would have prevented the saw from moving when the machinery was again set in motion. The Judge, on conclusion of defendant's case, held that there was no evidence to go to the Jury, and directed the plaintiff to be called. Plaintiff by his counsel appeared, and objected that he could not be nonsuited against his consent. The Judge overruled the objection. Held, on motion to set aside nonsuit, that the Judge was right.
