The Judgment of the court below was
atlirined ill the case of lieolge W. Pot

was rendered In favor of the plaintiff,
which was virtually a victory for the
defendant. The supreme court was
uppeah-d to, but considers that the
verdict was a proper one and refuses
to set it aside.

was In the meat business, was driving
down lniiiker street with u team of
holies and a butcher wagon. On

while at work on the w ires.
The ladders were placed in the car
tracks In the middle or the street. Mr.

The case was begun about live years

now on the superior court bench, re
fused to allow the case to go to Pike
