Foster relates that on July 1. 191i', he was employed by the defendant company to do painting on the steamship Excelsior. There was a strike of the employees of the Southern l'acitic Company at the timne. and Poster declares that he only ac cepted the employment under the ex pressed condition that the defendant company would afford him adequate and entirely safe protection from the strikers. The dock was surrounded by fencing, as was also the lavatory for the use of the men at work on the ship, and the defendant company had employed Boylan officers as a further protection for its workmen in the dry dock. July 4 the strikers made a descent on the dock, swept the inadequate Boylan force aside, entered the dock premises and ran Foster behind an iron water tank, assaulting him with bricks and stones, and shooting at him with pistols. One of the shots struck him in the right arm, crippling that member permanently, and reducing his earning capacity, and his left eye. 1 above and below, was so severely gashed by bricks and stones that his sight was impaired, and may be lost to him entirely. Charging gross negligence and want of care on the part of the Southern Pacific Company, and that the inju ries suffered by him were made -pos sible by the defendant company's fail ure to afford him the protection prom ised, ne prays for damages in the sum named.

Supreme Court. t The Supreme ('ourt met Monday for the first decision day of this term k and handed down a large number of a decisions. All the justices were pres ent and all of them read opinions. The a case of greatest interest and import k ance passed upon yesterday was that t of the State Board of Health against A. R. Susslin, the baker, whom the board sought to enjoin from operating his plant. The board charged that he was operating a bakery in violation of I t the rules and regulations of the board and that it was so insanitary that it amounted to a public nuisance and n sought an ,nJunctlon to keep him from doing so any further. Judge E. K. Skikner ordered him to show cause why he should not be enjoined, andr Mr. E. M. Cahn answered by attack ing the authortiy of the board to bring 1 the suit. He set up that under arti cle 319 of the constitution the police I power within the city was delegated to the municipal authorities, and that - therefore the Board of Health of the , was without right to enforce any sanitary regulations within the city t r limits. Judge E. K. Skinner, of the 1 Civil District Court, upheld this posti tion and refused to grant the board an N injunction. Thereupon Mr. B. T. Wal do, the attorney for the board, ap plied to the Supreme Court for writs c of certiorari and mandamus, setting n up that Judge Skinner was wrong in his judgment on this question as the board is vested with authority to reg- dl ulate health conditions throughout the state. ,Monday the court granted the prayer for the writ and ordered Judge n Skinner to send up the record in the - case in order that it might pass upon the question involved. In the mean- I time Jupdge Skinner is prohibited from proceeding any further with the case. each: said dock shall he paid for in cash, o in property actually received, or services 0 actually rendered, and may be paid for espe clally in the purchase of patents, patent e rights and patents applied for on appli-t ances incident to Its buslness, in such man- b ner and at such times as the board of direc tors shall determine.
