Miss James Walks in Front
Oregon Electric Car
and Is Killed.
Miss Mary James, aged 71
years, was struck by the Oregon
Electric noon car last Sunday,
receiving injuries from which
she died soon after.
Miss James was returning
from church and while crossing
the track on Second street, the
car from the east approaching
the depot, struck her as she
was crossing the track. Miss
James was somewhat hard of
hearing and did not hear the
warning bell and whistle, and
while the motorman, James Judy,
attempted to bring the car to a
stop, he was unable to do so in
time to prevent the accident.
Miss James received a cut about
three inches long on the left side
of the head behind the ear where
the skull was fractured, which
caused death within thirty min
utes. An inquest was held and
the company was exonerated
from any criminal liability.
Miss James moved to the
Grove in 1893 and purchased a
home on Third avenue where she
lived up to the time of her death.
She had many friends in the city.
Funeral services were held
Tuesday in the Congregational
church, Rev. Thomas in charge.
The burial took place in the For
est View cemetery this fore
noon. Her only near relative, her
brother. E. B. James, of Laidlaw,
arrived here Monday. Otis, of
Estacada, and Chas. James, of
Ogden, Utah, were among the
friends and relatives present at
