    v.
    STATE OF MARYLAND TO THE USE OF MARY SZCZESEK, Widow of Martin Szczesek.
    No. 216

    Argued January 29 and 30, 1914.
    Decided May 25, 1914.

    Messrs.

    W. H. Price, Jr., John E. Semmes, John E. Semmes, Jr., Jesse N. Bowen, and Matthew Gault for respondent.

    Mr. Justice Hughes delivered the opinion of the court:

    This is a libel filed on behalf of the widow and infant children of Martin Szczesek to recover damages for injuries resulting in his death. Szczesek was a stevedore in the employ of the Atlantic Transport

    Company, the petitioner, and was engaged in loading the ship Pretoria. The district court allowed a recovery against the petitioner (190 Fed. 240 ), which the circuit court of appeals affirmed. 113 C. C. A. 408, 193 Fed. 1019

    The questions presented are the same as those which were considered in Atlantic Transport Co. v. Imbrovek, decided this day [ 233 U.S. 52 , 58 L. ed. --, 34 Sup. Ct. Rep. 733], and, for the reasons stated in the opinion in that case, the decree is affirmed.

    Affirmed.
