Brick Coiqpaiiy Wants Supreme
Court to Decide What
Are Profits
OAKLASD, Oct. 17.—Edward H. Hor
: ton's suit, for a bonus over his salary
against tiie Remillard Brick company,
which wses tried in Judge Waste's court
in Mare*, 1911, came up again today
when attorneys for the company asked
for a new trial.
Hortrm complained that he was to
l>e paid I? per cent of all net profits
above which the company made.
Instead of paying the bonus he said
that the company discharged him with
his salary. The trial resulted in a
verdiwt in his favor for $4,800.
During the contest J. W. Barber, an
expert on obsolescence, testified that
agaimst the apparent net profits of the
company must be figured the deprecia
tion of the company's plant and equip
ment. Barber held that his computa
tions showed the schooners Eva and
Virginia after 15 years of service were
about worn out and that brick kilns in
use fey the company for 20 years were
obandete. Horton testified that his own
observations were that the schooners
ware in grood shape and that the kilns
were satisfactory.
ITudge Waste denied the motion to
de,y, and as there were no decisions on
testimony of this nature, the case will
b»; taken to the supreme court imme
diately for a ruling.
