SUIT FOR DAMAGES.
Elizabeth Adcock Will Try to Get $3,
370 From the O. R. & N.
Through her attorneys, Balleray &
McCourt, Elizabeth Adcock has tiled
suit against the O. R. & N. Cnrapanv
for tho recovery of 13,370 damages
due to Injuries received while in the
employ of the company.
The complaint alleges that on
May 10, 1903, the plaintiff was engag
ed as cook for n construction train
on the O. R. & N, Hue, and that she
was working in a car which had been
put on a sidetrack nt Nolln. On that
day n freight train was backed onto
the siding with great force and was
pushed ogalnst tho car in which the
plaintiff was working, with such vlo
lance that sho was thrown against
the end of the car and was scalded
and brlused and otherwise injured.
As the result or tne ucciuum uw
plaintiff was injured In the right arm
and the right leg, and tho sight of her
right eye was impaired. She was n
tied for thiee weeks and had a bill
of several hundred dollars to pay to
tho doctor, besides losing throj
months' wages, having been Injured
to such an extent that sho was uuablo
to do any work. In consideration of
all of tho Injuries nnd expense to
which she was subjected, the plain
tiff asks tho court for a decree grant
liu: her relief In the sum of 3,370,
together with tho costs of the action.
Portland. Aug. 12. The presence of
Northern Pacific railway surveyors in
that section or tho coast between 11
waco nnd South Rend, Wash., Is re
ported again, and the rumor of the
Northern road's evident Intention of
building down the north bank of tho
Columbia to ?omo point near tho
mouth of tho river Is agnln revived.
The opinion among railroad men
Is that the Northern Pacltic would
naturally make Us terminus some
where opposite Astoria, where tho
water is deep. The spur onto North
Beach would divide patronage of the
coast resorts with the O. IL &. N. Co ,
and the continuance of the lino
around the east side of Shoal
water nay to South Hcnd would tap
n heavHy-tlmbcred country. Th' con
struction of this main line and spurs
wo'nld obviously place tho Northern
Pacific In an admirable position to
"loop the loop."
Portage Road the Key.
"The Northern Pacific railroad
must have a down grade route to tho
sea." observed President I.ytle, of tho
Columbia Southern, of this city, when
discussing the situation recently.
"Tho construction of the portag.'
railroad around tho falls above The
Dalles Is tho key to the situation. If
that rond is built It looks inevitable
that the Northern Pacific will aban
don Its wheat trafllc business to the
Sound and find a cheaper way to
tidewater. Mountains are permanent
bairiers. They are a constant hind
rance to tho northern load. The
opening of the portage road means
that the vast wheat section of the
Upper Columbia liver will have tho
advantage of a cheaper rate down tho
river, and that means that the O. It.
& N. will have to lower Its rates."
To Meet Competitors,
Hither the Northern Pacific must
meet tho rate or leave tho wheat
oarrvlnir trade to Its competitors. To
meet the rate and keep climbing tho
mountains to Puget Sound Is maul
festly out of tho question; to abandon
the traffic Is untenable, therefoio the
onlv Kolutlon of tho tiroblem Is to Ian
imci: on the advantages offered by
nature and come down tho grade of
"In the event the river Is opened to
navigation above The Dalles and tho
Northern Pacific builds down Its
north bank, tho farmer and wheat
grower of contiguous territory will bo
tho principal gainer resulting now
the lesM'iied ircignt inies."
