Assistant Secretary Announces Three
Very Important Rulings.
A Michigan Man Gets One for Being Hurt
While Getting in His Bunk.
Washixgtojt, April 16. Assistant Sec
retary Bussey to-day rendered three pension
decisions, iii which is involved the impor
tant qnestion of when may and when mar
not a soldier be considered "in the line of
duty?" The first case is that of W. H.
Brokcnshaw, late of Company H, Twenty
ninth Michigan Volnnteers, who applied,
for an invalid pension. The basis of this
claim was an injury to the left side, incurred
in the service at -Jackson, Mich., abont
March 20, 1865, said injury having
been "caused by three soldiers
jumping on claimant while he was climbing
into his bunk, crushing the ribs of the left
side, just below the heart" The-claimwas
rejected by Commissioner Black upon the
ground that "claimant was not injured in
the line of duty." Assistant Secretary
Bussev, in his decision to-day, overrules the
former decision, and directs that Broken
shaw's name be placed upon the pension
rolls, rating his disability in accordance
with law. He savs:
In the original Ammerman decision (recently
reversed), as in tbe preceding case of Harring
ton, tbe department declined to recojrnlie the
doctrine of contributory negligence as an ele
ment in the line of duty, and failed, therefore, to
notice either the guiltiness or the innocence of
tbe injured party. It Is immemorial and true
doctrine of the common law that "the plalutiff
lias no remedy, if his negligence, many decree,
contributed to the accident" of wnich he com
plains, and whereby he suffered injury; but the
converse of this doctrine is equally true, viz:
that, if the negligence of the other party was
of the injury, then the injured party may re
cover. As now correctly held by the depart
ment, Ammerman was "in his proper place,
ready to perform such duty as he might be
called upon to do." and was guiltless of any
act contributory to it. inasmuch as 'the Injury
alleged as tbe ground of pension happened to
him without any fault or neglect on his part."
and hence, he was entitled to a remedy for the
result. That which, in this particular, was
true of Ammerman. seems to have been true,
vith increased emphasis, of Brokensbaw, the
claimant in the pending motion. Brokenshaw
was clearly In the line of duty not passive
only, but active duty inasmuch as he was in
the act of "climbing into his bunk," tbe place
it customary rest, which it was his duty to
ue and which was provided for him by the
regulations of the service when ho received
tbe alleged injury; the said injury, though not
a necessary result, was, as to claimant,
an unavoidable incident of tbe service, it
having been caused, without any provocation
on his part, by "three soldiers, names unknown,
i" limping on him "while be was climbing into his
rank." He was thus in no degree a contribu
tor to his own injury, but was merely the help
less recipient ot an irresistible assault. His
title to remedy is plain, but it does not lie
against bis assailants. It lies in the system of
pensions pro ided for disability incurred in the
service and line of duty. He was "in his proper
place, ready to perform such duty as he might
be called upon to do," and tbe mjurynlleged as
tbe ground of pension happened to him "with
out any fault or neglect on bis part." The doc
trine which tbe department now avows is a
fundamental rule of justice, and the applica
tion of it to tbe claimant In this as in all simi
lar cases, seems to be required by the true
Spirit andtntent of the pension sjstem.
Another case is that of C. H, Sedgwick,
late midshipman United States steamer
"Santee" and United States steamer "Con
stitution." The claimant in this case was
injured by a kick from a comrade on board
ship. He was at the time, to use his own
language, "twitting and teasing" his com
rade, who, becoming incensed thereat, ad
ministered to him the kick from which his
disability resulte'. The Assistant Secre
tary in this case sustains a former decision
rejecting the application, and adds:
Here it is apparent that the claimant not
only contributed directly to produce the cause
of his injury, but that he was engaged at the
time in a manner that was manifestly in
violation of tbe rules and regulations of the
service, and subversive of discipline and good
order, and the injury resulting from such con
duct on his part was unquestionably not in
curred in the line of duty.
The third case is that of Elizabeth Hull,
widow of "William Hull, a soldier who died
in a military prison at Nashville, of in
flammation of the pleura, contracted in the
prison. The soldier, it appears from the
evidence, was arrested and confined in the
prison for being absent from bis company
and regiment without permission. In this
case Mr. Bussey says:
To entitle a widow to a pension, the wound,
the injury or tbe disease which caused the bus
band's death must have been connected, as a
result, with the compliance by him with tbe re
quirements of military duty. Such connection
betn een the fatal disease and the service did
not exist In this case.
The former decision is adhered to.

A Prisoner Brought Clear From Dakota on
R Charge of Harder.
"Weston, W. Va., April 16. There were
nearly a thousand people at the depot here
last evening to witness the arrival of
Richard Dowell, the man brought from
Grand Forks, Dak., where he was arrested
two weeks ago on tbe supposition that he
was'tbe murderer of John R. and Edward
"West, who were shot and killed while re
turning from church December 23, 1875.
-Dowell was convicted, but escaped from
jail. A large posse of special officers had
been sworn in to prevent disorder, and
these kept the crowd at a considerable dis
tance from the train, but as soon as the
prisoner appeared there were scores of
shouts that he was not the man.
The prisoner was taken to jail, where the
officers were followed by the entire popu
lation of the town. At the jail the prisoner
stated his name was James Shelton, and a
native of Tennessee; that he had gone to
Dakota six vears ago, and that hehadnever
heard of the'murder until accused of it. He
will probably be released.

. You Need It Now
To impart strength and to give a feeling of
health and vigor throughout tbe system, there
is nothing equal to Hood's Sarsaparilla, It
seems peculiarly adapted to overcome that tired
feeling caused by change of season, climate or
life, and while it tones and sustains the system,
it purines and renovates tbe blood. We earn
estly urge the large army or clerks, book
keepers, school teachers, housewives, oper
atives and all others who have been closely
confined during the winter and who need a
good spring medicine, to try Hood's Sarsapa
rilla note. It will do you, good.
"Every spring for years I have made it a
practice to take from three to fire bottles of
Hood's Sarsaparilla. because I know it purifies
the blood and thoroughly cleanses the system
of all impurities. That languid feeling, some
times called 'spring fever,' will never visit the
system that has been properly cared for by this
never-falling remedy." W. H. Lawbexce,
Editor Agricultural Epitomise, Indianapolis.
