NOT ENTITLED TO INSURANCE FUND.

NOT ENTITLED TO INSURANCE FUND.

The Appellate division of the Supreme court of the State of New York has decided that, according to the charter of New York, Mary E. Reed, a widow whose husband entered the fire department as a watchman on January 16, 1884, and was afterwards promoted to be a clerk in the bureau of the chief of the fire department, is not entitled to payment from the insurance fund, because his position was abolished on May 7, 1902, and he was discharged and never reinstated. The court, however, pointed out that it was the duty of t,.e head of the department to certify to the facts to the civil service board, and the suspended employe is entitled not only to reinstatement to a position in the department as before, but to a corresponding or similar office or position in that or any other department of the city government, if within one year thereafter there were need for his services.
