Decided March 13, 1933
288 U.S. 445
A stevedore at work on a vessel in navigable waters in Oregon received injuries through the vessel's negligence from which he afterwards died ashore. The Oregon law gave the administrator an action at law for the damages resulting from the death, and a lien on the vessel.

60 F.2d 793 affirmed.
Certiorari, 287 U.S. 593, to review the reversal of a decree dismissing a libel in admiralty.
