Within the meaning of the Merchant Marine Act of June 5, 1920, which gives to seamen a right of action for damages at law for personal injuries and, by adoption of statutes modifying or extending common law right and remedies of railway employees, does away with the fellow servant doctrine in such case, the term "seamen" is to be taken to include stevedores when engaged in the maritime work of stowing cargo. P. 272 U. S. 51.

134 Wash. 235 affirmed.
