1. Against United States; suit to restrain Secretary of Interior and Land
Commissioner from illegal action; nature of suit.
A suit to restrain the Secretary of the Interior and the Land Commis-
sioner from doing, under color of their office, an illegal act which will
cast a cloud upon the title of complainant is not one against the
United States, nor in this case is it one for recovery of land merely
or an attempted appeal from the decision of the Interior Depart-
ment or a trial of title to land not within the jurisdiction of the
court and wherein the United States is not present or suable.
Lane v. Watts, 525.
2. Right to sue on supersedeas bond; effect on right to sue for damages under
The existence of the right to sue on a supersedeas bond does not imply
an exclusion of the right to sue under an existing general and ap-
plicable law for proper and reasonable damages. Missouri Pacific
Ry. Co. v. Larabee, 459.

is locality. Atlantic Transport Co. v. Imbrovek, 52; Atlantic Trans-
port Co. v. Szczesek, 63.
2. Jurisdiction of suit in personam against stevedore by employé.
Admiralty has jurisdiction of a suit in personam by an employé of a
stevedore against the employer to recover for injuries sustained
through the negligence of the latter while engaged in loading a
vessel lying at the dock in navigable waters. Ib.
3. Jurisdiction; scope of; quære as to non-maritime torts.
The precise scope of admiralty jurisdiction is not a matter of obvious
principle or of very accurate history, The Blackheath, 195 U. S. 361,
and quare as to the exact extent to which admiralty jurisdiction
extends where the tort is not maritime although committed on
navigable waters. Ib.
4. Torts; when maritime.
A tort committed on a vessel in connection with a service thereto may
be maritime even if there is no fault on the part of, or injury to,
the ship itself. Atlantic Transport Co. v. Imbrovek, 52.

the mariners themselves. Ib.

tion for four months less a day.
The failure by an insolvent judgment debtor and for a period of one

Ravenna National Bank, 360.
