The troubles of Jacob Blackman, the boycotted meat dealer on Oliver street, have resulted in legal action toward obtaining redress for his losses. He has placed an attachment on the property of the Polish priest, N. Sikorski, to the amount of $3000, and City Solicitor Avery has been employed as counsel to prosecute the case. The complainant alleges that through the maledictions of the priest his business was ruined.
