WEAIVTHY MIMXQ COMIWXY SUED.
Miner Say Uc Is Crippled for Life
Through It Xegllgencc.
Suit for $40,000 damages for personal In
juries and malpractice was filed In the
State Circuit Court yesterday by Jens P.
Peterson against tho Bunker Hill & Sul
livan Mining & Concentrating Company.
Tho complaint sets forth two separata
causes of action. Tho first Is that on
July 17, 1902. Peterson was employed in
the mine, which la located near Wardner,
Idaho, as a laborer and chuck-tender.
Ho was directed to go up on a lift or
elevator, in a sklpway, to fix a pulley.
About ISO feet above him was a platform
made of loose planks. It Is alleged that
as Peterson was ascending one of these
was knocked out of place and fell, strik
ing Peterson on the right leg, breaking
tho thigh bone and otherwise serlousy
Injuring him. He says he was previously
a strong, robust man, and for this Injury
he demands 20.000' damages.
For a second cause of suit, Peterson
avers that the Bunker Hill & Sullivan
Mining & Concentrating Company employs
a large number of men. and has promul
gated a rule under which $1 per month Is
deducted from the wages of each man
employed. In consideration of this month-
'ly assessment, the company entered Into
a contract with him and others in casa
of sickness to care for them, hire compe
tent physicians and surgeons and pay hos
Peterson alleges that the comrnnv em
ployed Dr. Hugh France of Wardner, to
set his broken leg, and that Dr. France
proved Incompetent and failed to set the
leg In apposition, but, on the contrary,
set the break so that the ends of the bone
lapped. As a result of this alleged mal
practice. Peterson asserts that the leg Is
now three inches storter than tho other
one. He Is crippled for life, and com
pelled, to go on crutches. He therefore
asks for $20,000 additional damages. O'Day
& Tarpley appear as attornes for Peter
son. Tho papers were served upon Albert
Burch. the manager of the company In
The Bunker Hill & Sullivan Mining &
Concentration Company operate one of
the largest lead and silver mines In the
world. There aro many miles of railroad
track underground, running around tho
mountain, and over GOO men aro at work
In the mine.
TOOK TRADE WITH II 131.
Laundry Company Suen Driver Who
Left Its Employ.
Judge George is to decldo It the driver
of a laundry wagon can leave his em
ployer and take the business of the routo
to another laundry. The case in point is
that of the Troy Laundry Company
against W. F. Williams.
The company had a contract with "Wil
liams that for a period of CO days after
ho should sever his connection with the
company, he should not solicit tho per
sons on the route ho was covering to pat
ronize an opposition concern. It is al
leged by the Troy Laundry Company that
Williams left after giving 13 days' notice,
when ho had agreed to give SO days' no
tice, and also that he Influenced the cus
tomers he had been calling upon, to pat
ronize the Oregon Laundry, notwithstand
ing the existence of a written contract
with the former company to the contrary.
The case was argued yesterday by At
torney TV. T. Muir. The manager of the
Troy Laundry Company testified to tho
facts In the case. Williams made no de
fense. He previously won an Injunction
suit which was brought against him. The
present action is for nominal damage in
the sum of CO, but what the company
particularly desires Is a decision on tho
contract for futuro guidance. If the con
tract Is legal, others of a like nature will
hold. It Is conceded that a driver may
quit and go to work for another company
at once and solicit orders, provided he
does not do no on the route he had Just
been covering. In other words, he must
not take advantage of his acquaintance
in a business way with people to take the
patronage from one concern to another.
