It is claimed ( that the presence of many rocks and boulders on this upward slope endan- ( gered the lives of workmen situated ( below. Becker charges that the de- ^ fendants knew of this condition and . that they put a force of men at work j on the slope above for the purpose of j compelling the cessation of the work in which Becker was engaged as the ^ employee of Grennan. and Becker fur ther charges that these defendants caused to be rolled down the moun- t tainside rocks and boulders from a point directly above the place where be was working for the sole purpose , of terrorizing him and forcing him to stop his wark.
