    • (OBIT: H.E. Stevens, 80, retired vice president of maintenance and operation for the Northern Pacific railway, died Wednesgay in Northern Pacific Hospital after a lengthly illness.

      Mr. Stevens, who retired from the railroad in 1947 after 43 years service, was known for bridge construction and engineering and later, for handling railway labor negotiations of national scope.

      Born in Blue Hill, Maine, in 1874, he majored in civil engineering at the University of Maine and was graduated in 1897.

      He joined Northern Pacific in 1904 to take charge of bridge engineering. Two years later he was named head of the bridge department and continued as system bridge engineer until October 1916, when he was promoted to chief engineer.

      One of his greatest contributions to Northern Pacific, according to associates, was development of the Rosebud coal field in south central Montana. He prevailed upon the company to begin open pit mining there in 1923 and it became the principal source of fuel for the road's steam locomotives.

      He was named a vice president of the line in 1928. His residence was 725 Linwood.

      Survivors are his wife, Mabel, a son Howard E. of Glendora, Calif. and a daughter Mrs. Frank Weber.)
