"Reported for Harford County November 20, 1900 by special dispatch to The Baltimore Sun, the suit of Jacob Hetrick against the Conowingo Bridge Company ended in a judgment of non-suit. The jury agreed upon a verdict for the defendant, but when the plaintiff was called, he declined answer. Mr. Hetrick was permanently injured two years ago while crossing the bridge at night. The plaintiff was seeking installation of lights along the bridge to further avoid accidents. Council was Albert Constable and James J. Archer for the plaintiff, and George L. Van Bibber and Thomas H. Robinson for the defendant."
