PLAN TO FERRY TRAINS

Lord Weardale Chairman of

Already Been Regiatered.
[By c_M- lo Th* TVibun* 1
London, Nov. 16?Many thousand
Americans who annually vlslt Europe
will tnke more than a passlng interest
in the schemes now serlously under
conshleration here establishlng direct
' railroad communlcatlon between Eng
land und France. The Channel tunnel.
through which lt Is proposed to run

nel, su that passengera will not huve to

Lord Weardale, who ls chalrman of
the Channel 1'erry Company, ht_s this
Iwoak given some detalla of the new

vtow to securlng the aupport of Its dl
rectots Enormous < upltal will be m

not equal one-hundrrdth part of that
requlred for a Channel tunnel.
About three years ago Parllament
granted powera f..r a Channel ferry
from Dover to C_la1s, but the apathy of
the railroad company with running
j.owers between London and Dover ef
fectually quashed ihe ldea, which haa
, now been revlved largely aa a direct re
i .ult of the auccesa of the ferry be
twaan Sueden and Germany. This en
' terprls*' hus been an unquallfled suc

ItWO years the number of passengera
haa lncreased foiirfold, whlle the gooda
