CHAPMAN V. SIMS
railroad companies responsible for personal injuries caused by the
want of care or negligence of their employes while engaged in the
service they were employed to render.
 Under the law in force in Panama and in the Canal Zone,
damages for physical pain and suffering are recoverable in such an

C. C. A. 291. The ruling of the court to this effect, which was as-
signed as error, was in conformity with the decision just cited, and
was not erroneous.
An exception was reserved to a part of the court's charge to the

as an element of damages. This exception is sought to be supported
on the ground that no evidence adduced tended to prove that the de-
velopment of the tuberculosis mentioned was attributable to the in-
jury complained of. The evidence does not justify this contention.
It was such as to furnish support for a finding that the development
of the disease in the plaintiff's system was a proximate result of the
injury complained of.
The conclusion is that there was no reversible error in any ruling
The judgment is affirmed.
