Certiorari, 279 U.S. 827, to review a judgment of the circuit court of appeals which affirmed a judgment of the district court granting a nonsuit against the plaintiff, the present petitioner, in an action for damages caused by fire alleged to have resulted from negligence of the defendant railway company.
