Before Becoming a Membr of
Fire Deartoment.
William A. fchwerdtfeger yesterday
lost his suit to compel the District Com
missioners to place his name on the pen
sion roll of Bremen. Justice Stafford
ruled in the District Supreme Court that
the evidence presented by the defend
ants showed that Mr. Schwerdtfoger had
had epilepsy before becoming a member

nervous disorder, making him unfit for
future service.
Mr. Schwerdtfeger brought suit on Oc
tober 4. 1911. for the mandamus writ to
force the Commissions to pay him $5C
a month for the remainder of his life.
He was injured - during the Are at the
American fAve and ten cent stores, in
Seventh street. on Christmas Eve of
1913. laying for four hours in a mass of
debris in an almost unconscious condi
After his rescue he-was taken to a hos
pital. and when he was released from
there he claimed to have been injured
so that it was impossible for him to
work again In the fire department.
He applied for a pension. The exam
ining board of the Police and Fire De
partmenta decided that his trouble was
epilepsy and that he could have returned
to work had he not suffered from this
disease. The Commissioners therefore
refused him the pension and he was dis
charged from the department on Janu
ary 27. 1915. on account of disability.
Justice Staffor4 dismissed the petition
of the plaintiff. who noted an appeal
through Attorney Robert H. McNeil. As
