DUCK BLINO CASE
BEFORE LOCAL J. P.
Magistrate Holds That Blind Of
Late Samuel Davis’ In South
River, Vests In John M. Taylor
Although not decisive of any civil
or property rights, which, it is under
stood, will be taken up in a Court ac
tion, an interesting point relating to
the licensing of duck blinds in the
waters of Anne Arundel county was
involved in a hearing before Police
Justice William S Welch this morn
ing.
The case was based on a warrant
sworn out by John M. Taylor against
John W. Armiger, alleging that the
defendant had established a duck
blind location off Hill's Point in South
river within three hundred yards of a
blind already licensed by Mr. Taylor.
This was the blind location formerly
held by the late Samuel Davis.
Mr. Armiger claimed that he hac
not only gotten a license for the blind
the morning of Mr. Davis’ death, but
had also gone down and established
his location. Mr. Taylor had previ
ously gotten his license from the
Clerk of the Court about 8 o’clock
that seme morning, but,took the stand
that it was not necessary for rfm tc
actually go and establish his location,
as the blind formerly built by Mr.
Davis, he claims, answered that pur
pose. This blind has been standing
there for a number of years, and the
lieris, shortly after Mr. Davis’ death,
undertook to transfer their rights in
the structure to Mr. Taylor.
Mr. Armiger claimed that accord
ing to rulings of the Court of Ap
peals some years ago. when a per
son dies, his license to a duck blind
dies with him, and that priority then
goes to the person who first licenses
and establishes a location. He also
claimed that ne was the only per
son to do loth the required licensing
and the establishing following Mr.
Davis’ death, and that there was no
other licensed location within three
hundred yards of the one staked off
by him.
The magistrate, however, ruled that
the whole case narrowed down to
priority in obtaining the license, and
imposed a fine of $lO and costs. As
Mr. Armiger had raised the question
of the magistrate's jurisdiction to de
cide the point at issue, an appeal was
laken. In addition to th ; s, a civil
sui*, it is understood, will also be
filed_.
It is just beginning to dawn
upon the public at large that the
automobile is like every other
article of utility. It wears out
and must le replaced.
* • •
Automotive engineers have f;g-
U'etl it will take 1.200,000 auto
mo! iles to replace those worn out
in 1922.
This will explain, to some de- I
groe why cars are not on hand,
ready for immediate delivery, the
day you want one.
Don't wait until summer for
. that new car. Everybody else
may te waiting, too. That will
■ lead to long delay—and securing
r a car you don't want.

A citiacn. who has l een a ren
-5 ter of all the civic todies of An
napolis, daring the past twenty
-1 five years, was heard to express
fc s asten'shment at the megni
r tude of the way the automobile
r dealers are going in for the show,
lie thinks, if the other organiza
tions had displayed as much en
ergy, had as much nerve and had
put up theit money as freely as
i: the promoters of the present en
f terprise. there is no telling how
t far Annapolis would le on the

: TO BE SUNG IN 2 PARTS
: I
The sacred cantata. •’Olivet to Cal
vary.” will be given tonight at 7:30 at
St. Anne’s Church by the combined
' choirs of St. Cecilia’s Guild, the
. church, and a number of extra
singers. The words of the cantata
are by Shapcott Weneley and the
, music is by J. H. Maunder.
The cantata recalls simply and
reverently the scenes which mark the
last few days of the Saviour’s life on
earth, and some of the reflections sug
gested thereby. The rejoicing of the
multitude with Hosannas and palni3,
■ the view of Jerusalem, from the steep
of Olivet, the lament over the beauti
ful city, the scene in the Temple, and
the lonely walk back over the Mount
at night, form the chief features of
the first part.
Supper Of Passover
Part two opens with the supper of
the Passover, at which Jesus washes
His disciples feet, and gives to His
friends the new commandment of
love for one another as a sign of true
discipleship. From this the scene
passes through the infinite pathos of
te Garden of Gethsomane, the sudden
appearance of the hostile crowd
Jesus forsaken by His disciples. His
utter homeliness among ruthless foes
the tumult before Pilate and the
Judgment Hall, the passage of tbf
Cross, the tragedy and triumph o'
Calvary.
George A. Webster, choirmaster and
organist of St. Anne’s, has been re
hearsing the cantata - for some week 3
The soloists will be: Sopranos, Mrs
Elliott H. Burwell, Jr., Mrs. L. Serb
Dederick; altos, Mrs. C. C. Slayton
Mrs. R. G. Chaney; tenors, Clarenci
L. Clemson, Charles H. Shearman
