Not illustrated. 1881 edition. Excerpt: ...though it seems the state, parties may bind themselves by an agreement not to set up defect of jurisdiction.1 In this country we have numerous rulings to the effect that an action for injuries to land must be brought in the state where the land is situated.2 Hence an action for cutting down telegraph poles (regarded as part of the land) can only be maintained in the state where the offence was committed.3 But it has-been held that where a wrongful act is done in one state from which an injury to land accrues in another state, the defendant may be sued in either state.4 And it has been also held that to exempt the defendant in an extra-territorial suit, the plaintiff's cause of action must rest on an injury to something attached to the realty, which is not the case when the thing injured is a movable fishing shanty.5 i Burnley v.
