(FTom a Staff Correspondent) LINCOLN, June 10.-(8pecial.) The au prema court has upheld the validity of tha employers' liability act passed by tha legislature of 1907. In the case of Frank Swoboda against the Union Pacific: Rail road company, wherein a Judgment was given In favor of Bwoboda, the railroad company alleged that tha plaintiff at the time of his Injury was not engaged In construction or repair work within the meaning of the employers' liability Act. The court holds that the evidence Is suf ficient shows that the plaintiff was en gaged In construction or repair work at the time he was Injured by a steam ham mer, which he was helping operate in the Union Pacific blacksmith shop at Omaha. Swoboda and another employe were operating a steam hammer weighing about 600 pounds In flattening Iron washers which were being made for general use by the railroad company In the repair of engines and cars.' The employers' liability act provides that every railroad company operating a rail road engine, car or train In the state of Nebraska shall be liable to any of its em ployes who at the time of Injury are en gaged in construction or repair work or In the use or operation .of any engine, car or train for said company for all dam ages which may result from the negligence of any of Us officers, agents or employes. The court says this Is a valid law and not repugnant to the fourteenth amendment to tha federal constitution. Appeal Dismissed. Tha appeal of the Board of County Super visors of Dodge county In the case of James W. Cattern Is. dismissed. The board, in January, 190S, gave a contract to print county supplies for the year 1908 to the Perkins-Howard company. Cattern, alleg- J Ing that he yai the lowest bidder, obtained a writ of mandamus to require the board to give him the -contract, and he subse quently did the work. The county board appealed to the supreme court. The court says that In cases of concurrent original Jurisdiction parties are entitled to have the case advanced upon motion. This the board did not do. The court says that if parties neglect to move to advance and by reason of delay a decision of the case cannot af fect the substantial rights of the parties in respect to matters complained of, the ap peal wUl be dismissed by the supreme court upon Its own motion.
