Clackamas Countv Wins. On' Sep
tember 17th, 1896, L. and H. Toedte
meir, of Stafford, ran a threshing ma
chine engine over the bridge across
Kruse creek, about nine miles west of
this city. The engine, team and driver
broke through the structure and fell a
distance of 18 feet. The driver, Ernest
Buckman, received a painful scalp
wound and a bruised hip. He was
brought to this city for treatment. The
engine was wrecked, and one of the
horses so badly injured, that he had to
be killed. The engine carried 60 pounds
of steam at the time, and it was owing
to the extraordinary efforts of the dri
ver that he escaped being scalded.
Toedtemeir Bros, brought suit for $3,000
damages against Clackamas county, but
a change of venue was granted to Wash
ington county. The case was up before
Judge McBride at Hillsboro last week,
and was non-suited for the reason that
no timber or planks had been laid down
for the wheels ot the engine to run on
as required by statute. Judge McBride
decided that no individual could receive
damages from a corporation or county,
for injuries received while violating the
