[131 NJL Page 486]
reported in 131 N.J.L. 1, reserving, however, the question of liability under the doctrine of the maritime law for maintenance and cure of the plaintiff as a seaman. The case was not decided by the jury on that theory, and it is not necessary to pass upon that phase of the case.
The judgment is affirmed.
