1 Report Of Feasibility Of Con
structing It Has Been Sub
mitted To Governor
Construction of a proposed railroad
; through Anne Arundel and Calvert
counties would cost about *1,200,000
without rolling stock, according to H.
Carl Wolf, chief engineer of the Pub
lic Service Commission.
Mr. Wolf has Just reported to Gov
ernor Ritchie the result of the inves
tigation on the possibility of buildiug
a railroad through those counties.
The Governor said the report would
' be put in another shape so as to .show
more clearly the most suitable loca
tion of the proposed line and what
traffic could be expected.
Will Name Committee
When this is done the Governor will
appoint a committee to study it. On
the final rejvort he will base his rec
ommendations to the next Legislature.
The last Legislature directed that this
investigation be made.
“If any way can be found to build
a road in that section,” said the Gov
ernor, “I will do all in my power to
help. it is about time we knew
whether a road there is practicable.
If it is. then it ought to be built."
The line suggested is part of the
old Drain Point Railroad’s right of
way. which follows the high ridge
through the two counties to Drum
Point, at the extreme end of Calvert
county. Two alternate routes are
suggested as practicable. The road
would extend from Millersville, thiß
county, to Solomons Island, that being
recommended as the terminus instead
of Drum Point. This would take the
road to the tip end of Calvert county
and to the deepest and most com
modious inland harbor along the At
lantic Coast.
Agrees To Operate Bond
George T. Btshpp, president of the
Washington, Baltimore and Annapolis
Rntlway Company, is interested in the
project, and has promised tentatively
tlint if the road is built his company
j will operate it. His company, he has
! said, is in no position to finance the
I building of the road.
He lias suggested that about $500.-
00<1 of the $1,200,000 required to build
the road could be raised by a bond is
i sue. subscriptions for a substantial
sum might be obtained throughout the
section to be traversed hv the road
and the State might supply the re
All these matters will be taken un
der consideration by the committee
which Governor Ritchie will appoint.

of the recent ruling of the Interstate
I Commerce Coinra.ssion providing for
1 the sale of non-transferahle and in
terchangeable mileage tickets at a 20

The injunction was! issued after a j
hearing on a petition of fifty eastern j
railroads opposed to the injunction, j

12-year-old Josenh Czaika. who, after
tw’o years in lock and chain in an up
stairs room of his home, was rescued
by police last Saturday. Young
Czajka told authorities his father
placed him in the chain each night af
ter school and held him prisoner un

all city licenses, including cart, wagon
i and carriage licenses. Also licenses
l for poles, pool and billiard rooms,

i. seek the office of the city clerk at the
- earliest possible opportunity and take
out the required license.
Although the matter was not
brought to his attention in an official
capacity. Sheriff Harry T. Levely
stated this afternoon that an investi
gation would be made of the reported
attempt to set fire to the Holy Trinity
| Catholic Church at Glen Burnie, this
j county, early Sunday morning. The
; attempt was frustrated, it is said, be
cause the alleged incendiary was
j frightened away before he could com
i plete his preparations.
"I know of no reason why anyone
would wish to tire our church.” said
the Rev. Leonard J. Ripple, pastor,
last night. *T attribute the attempt to
a religious fanatic.”
When laymen went to open the
church yesterday morning they found
I that the overlapping strip between the
two doors had been pried off. On
opening the door they discovered a
j large quantity of charred paper,
which evidently had burned itself out
j without setting fire to the church.
