ASK COUNTY TO CHANGE
Complaint is Made That Bridge
xonns uDsiruciion; uause
Water to Flood Property.
A suit to compel the county to
change the two concrete bridges across
Tutuilla creek at the west end of
Webb street, was filed In the circuit
court this morning. The plaintiffs are
Herman Peters, William E. Welch,
Harney Dougherty and 8. H. Forshaw.
all residents of the west end of the I
c'ty. George W. Coutts of Pendleton, I
together with Richards & Richards of!
Portland are attorneys for the plain-:
It Is alleged in the complaint that'
before the bridges were constructed J
the natural channel of the stream was 1
sufficient to carry off he flood waters j
but that when the bridges were built
they were constructed in such a way
as to form obstructions in the stream
and cause the watv to flood the prop.
erty of the complaining citizens.
It Is specifically alleged that tbe
bottoms of the bridges are more than
two feet below the banks of the
stream, that the piers set out in the
stream bed rest on a concrete!
base two feet high which extends clear j
across the bed of the - stream, thus!
grsatly reducing the water

overflowed every' year since the
bridges wero built.
It is further alleged that such over
flowing of the land has resulted in
washing away the soil, undermining
buildings, depositing filth and debr s
and otherwise causing damage and in
convenience. The last time this oc-
curred, according to the complaint, was
in February of this year.,.
- The court is asked to compel the
county to reconstruct the bridges In
such a way that they will not contin
ue to be obstructions.-!.
It has been known for some time
that a suit was to be filed aga.'nst eith
er the city or the county, or both, and
it was anticipated that the property
owners would ask for damages. The
city is not involved in the suit filed
and it Is net a damage suit, as no dam
ages are asked. Apparently the pur
pose of this suit is merely to compel
the county to change the brdges so
that the water can pass underneath,
a the complaint alleges it did before
the bridges were built.
