mencement of the trip or voyage, until the goods are delivered to
the consignee at the point of destination. If the carrier at the
point of destination, shall use due diligence to notify the consignee,
and the goods are not taken by the consignee, and have, in consequence,
to be stored in the depots or warehouses of the common
carriers, they shall, thereafter, only be liable as warehousemen. It
is also provided that where common carriers receive goods, for
transportation, into their warehouses or depots, they shall forward
them in the order in which they are received, the first received to
be first forwarded, without giving the preference to one over another,
and in case they shall fail to do so, they shall be liable, absolutely,
for all losses occurring while the goods remain, and for all
damages occasioned or in any wise resulting from the delay: Provided
that the trip or voyage shall be considered as having commenced
from the time of the signing of the bill of lading, and the
liability of the common carrier shall attach, as at common law,
from and after such signing.
