Judge Alrtf'i decision at Hagerstown yes
terday authorize* the sale, under tha act ol
1878, of tha Chesapeake and Ohio canal. In
this ease, it will be remembered, suits we?
brought in the courts of this District and U
Washington couuty. Md., on behalf of the
bondholders of 1878 for tha appointment of re
ceivers. After litigation the Washing toe
couuty court appointed receivers for the
Maryland Interests in tha canal, and our Dis
trict court appointed receivers for the District
property in it The Maryland receivers de
cided that it was not feasible to restore and
operate the canaL Judge Alvey confirms this
conclosion and decides that the canal must be
sold. He holds tha* it is competent for him to
decree a sale of the canal from one terminus to
the other, and of all its property and franchises,
discharged of all liens and encumbrances, but
beforo any sale can bo mado tncrc must be a
concurrent decree of the District of Columbia
court assenting to such action.
This decision following the canal lease bill
and the bill chartering the Washington and
Cumberland Railroad Company, both of which
passed the Maryland legislature st the last ses
sion, is the final link, so far as the state of
Maryland is concerned, in the chain of authori
sation of a railway line between this eity and
the city of Cumberland, Maryland. The new
railroad measure has been reported favorably
by the United States Senate District committee,
and a similar bill has been introduced in the
Hou*e. It provides for the construction of a
railroad along the old Chesapeake and Ohio
canal bad from the line of the District to 17th
street west The important decision of Judge
Alvey is printed in today * Stab.
Some interesting street railway statistics from
cities of over 50.000 aro presented in the report
of Mr. Cooley to the census bureau. The in
crease in mileage for fifty-six cities during ten
yean was 1.461 miles or 86.5 per cent Troy,
JJ.V,, made no increase, her 16.48 miles in 1880
showing the same in 1890. Birmingham s (Ala.)
increase cannot be computed by percentage,
she having no railway in 1883 and 76.94 miles
is IS'jO. Omaha, with 993.22 per cent increase
leads the list in percentage, bnt not in miles
built She had 4.5 miles iu 18S0 snd 44.92 miles
in 1(190. Chicago went from 80.47 miles in 1880
to 184.78 in 1890, an increase of 104.31 miles
and the largest of any reported. Boston comes
next with 100.86 miles increase and 200.86
miles of line. Philadelphia with 283.47
nules leads in the length of lines.
Boston with 200.86 comes next Then Chicago
with 184.78, Sew York with 177.10, which does
not iuclude any of her suburban lines, and
Brooklyn 164.4. Washington has not been en
tirely idle in the past decade either, and from
29.47 miles in 1880 she shows 38.77 miles, a
grand total increase of 9.3 miles, or a little
less than one mile a year. Next after Troy
Albany shows the least increase, only 1.94
miles being added to her 18.5 mile* in ten
year*. Richmond, Vs.. had three miles only
until 1887. when she took a boom and jumped
to 14.37 aitles in 1890. an increase of 379 per
cent St Paul with 32 miles shows 433 per
cent increase, and Minneapolis, with 5L5
miles increases 472.22 per cent Baltimore has

instances, and distances are for length of line
and not miles of track, which would include
