      The Chicago Towing Company has been sued for $5,000 on account of the death of the fireman on the tug PARKER, when she exploded. The main ground for the suit will be negligence in using the water of the South fork for making steam. With marine people for jurors, of course no verdict for damages could be obtained, but with people who know nothing of river business, the result of the case will be doubtful. If it were not for the supreme court to set aside these verdicts, towing companies would be bankrupted.
