tor of Thomas Herron, deceased
against the Bates & Rogers Construc
tion Co. Hon. A. D. Cole of this city

ing manuel labor in connection with

from one of the defendant's Iron smoke
stacks used by it to conduct smoke
and steam from one of its engines and
boilers operated in connection witb
the said construction work when said
Iron smoke stack, which haa been
erected by the defendant, being insuf
ficiently defectively and dangerously
held In place, broke and fell upon and
hurled the said intestate, Thomas Her
ron, to the ground; that thereby ho
wsb greatly bruised on and about his
person and his back was broken; that
thereby he became paralyzed in the
lower part of his body and thereafter,
as a result of the said Injuries, died,

fendant The iron smoke stack ergot
ed by the defendant was insufficiently,

within a radius of its legnth and un

the Auditorium of the Central
District Building Tonight.
Tonight In the auditorium ot the

and Hampton, forwards; Shea and
Dickson, guards; Fitzgerald and
High School Wood, center; Smoot
and Everett, forwards; Downing and
Browning, forwards; S. Parker and
In former years the contests be
tween the Alumni and the High School
team, have always been a walkaway
for the latter owing to the lack of
organization and team work In the
Alumni team. Thla will not be so this
year as the Alumni team has been
picked from men that have either been
Staying iu college or who have been
Slaying at night at the High School.
eThey have had several practice, to
gether and all of the team feel that
they will give the High School boys 1
On the other hand the High School
team haa had the experience of play
lug several of the strong teams In this
aeuion and have been victorious In
every contest thus far played except
one. Thi. experience will be very
valuable to them and they are confi
dent of adding another scalp to their
The outcome will be watched by a
large number of alumni not on the
