Th main point brought out by James
B. Kerr, counsel for the Portland et
ftaattltf yesterday, waa that- the survey
of the Columbia Valley road would not
admit Of the construction of a modern
railway to be equipped with th existing
heavy rolling stock in use. It . waa
shown that the survey waa full of eight
and ten per cent curves white the Port
land at Seattle road baa no curves over
three per cent. '
It will be argued by the Portland aV
Seattle counsel that It will' be imprac
ticable for the Columbia Valley to build
a road according to th present surrey
and operate heavy trains over it.
Martin Ia Pip, for the Columbia Vat-

idea of th company to build 'such an
