DECIDES THAT MINOR ENTERING

I RISKS.
1 1. A minor who enters the epiployI
ment of nnother assumes the rlsUs of
Jail such apparent dangers ns he Is
(I capable of comprehending and avoiding.
' 2. II is nctionnhle negligence for
an employer to engage anil place at
r a dangerous employment a minor
r who. although Instructed, lacks sufr
flelent age and eapaclly to cnmpre'
1 hend and avoid the dangers of the
I employment, if the employer has or
| should have nollee of the minor's age
| and Inch of capacity.
| " The employer of n minor, withJ
out oilier notice, is charged with notice
of such lack of rapacity as Is
usual among minors of the same age,
i so far as the minor's age is or should
he knonw in the employer.
j J. The lmnlen nf providing that n
] minor employe had greater tlian the
! usual capacity of minors of the same
age rests ttpon the employer: and
the harden of proving that lite minor
i had less than Hitch pstml capacity
j rests upon the minor, or the one seeking
to recover damages on account ot'
his death.
a. A case proper for submission to
a Jury.

As out they spin;

car shortage In the Northwest are
made clear In the following letter, addressed
to Senator Hahtiborough, by
Chairman Knapp: >
"The inability of shippers to 8ep?it?:ij|
cars for the njovement of their traflle
is reported trom various parts ot the
country and amounts in some sections,
as- you observe, to almost a calamityi:s;;Jsj
This matter has given the c&tnmission
special concern, although we
pear to be without any adequate aa*. :>;??3|
thor|ty to deal with such a slluatlon.-^;
We can exercise no direct power t?'.'
compel Interstate carriers to' fhnittia'.i,^ra|
adequate equipment, nor ai? ?e:pr?iT^^a
pared at this lime to recommend speciflc
legislation upon this subject It ySjifi
a given carrier unjustly dlaertmlMttiis-;.'^?
between shippers In distributing: its f| I
car supply we could undoubtedly tnahe \vJsff
an enforelhle order of relief after itivestlgatlng
a complaint and giving the / fcy&f
carrier a hearing. We could also, per- 4
haps, award reparation for damage#
resulting front failure to supply sufficlent
curs, but our power to do so la rjwg
not altogether certain. Moreover, any
award made by us in a proceeding
brought for that purpose would estab- |
lish only a prima facie case against
the carrier In a suit, brought In the
federal courts to enforce the order,. ; . :>
Inasmuch as such a proceeding goea 1 i '
upon the theory of awarding Jstnagea, yj
it would seem to be rather more suitable
and efficient for aggrieved shippers
to bring their auita in the court* ;
in the first instance.
"We have, however, ordered an invesligatlon
of this matter or car shorty
age, and will prosecute It with the ut- '1 j
most dispatch. Already one or more
agents have been sent to the NottlK,;v.1iQ^j
west, and It Is expected that hearings

the next two weeks. This appear* t? : ;
ne the most, effective course the com- ;vfe
mission can take, and you may.be an- yiSSjjf
sttred everything will be done within i$Sjb
the scope ot our authority to
about the earliest possible relief."
