This action u'usbroughlby Ihu plaintiff May 18111, to recover damages because, as he alluges, he was discharged and blacklisted by the railroad company because he wa.s forced by the union to which he belonged to go out on a strike. The petitioner claims that hu had filled a position nsbrakemati and conductor on the hake Shore road and had become proficient in the discharge of bis duty.
