TOWSON, Md. Saturday, - March 20, 1909. LONGNECKER BROS., Editors and Proprietors. sl.SOper annum—in advance. Postage pre paid. No subscription taken for less than six months. \3T C. &P. PHOHE—TOWSOH 211 J£% In the current issue of the Outlook appears the first signed editoral from the pen of Theo dore Roosevelt, advance copies of which ap peared in the daily newspapers the morning after inauguration day. In it he tells “Why I believe in the kind of Journalism for which the Outlook stands.” His close acquaintance with the staff of that paper began when he was Governor of New York. The new tariff bill was introduced into the House of Representatives on Wednesday. It will create an estimated annual revenue of $300,000,- 000, an increase of about $50,000,000 compared with the pretent tariff. One of the moet im portant features is an inheritance tax estimated to bring in about $20,000,000 annually. The internal revenue tax on cigarettes is increased from $3 to $3.60 and from SI.OO to $1.50 per thousand. Beer and whisky are not tonebed. Coffee is on the free list, but tea is taxed 8 cents per pound and 9 cents when brought in from other than the producing country. A large number of articles are put on the free list, but the bill imposes an average maximum duty 20 per cent, in excess of the present tariff. A bill has been introduced in the Legisla ture of Maine to pension unmarried women after a certain age, at the expense of bachelors and widowers. The bill is entitled “An act to impose a tax on unmarried men of 30 years and upward for the benefit of spinsters of 40 years and upward who have never received an offer of marriage.” It provides that the tax shall be collected in the same manner as poll taxes and shall be disbursed to spinsters who have reached the age of 40 years who have not re fused any “reasonable” offer of marriage. "Reasonable” offers are held to be any pro posal of matrimony made in good faith by any man who is not an inmate of an insane asylum and who bas not been convicted of a felony or infamous crime. No benefit exceeding SIOO a year is to be paid to any spinster. Dr. Joseph Rutter Owens, mayor of Hyatts ville for three terms and treasurer of the Mary land Agricultural College since 1890, died at bis home in Hyattsville, on Monday night last, after a long illness. He was born in Balti more in 1839 and spent his entire life in this State. He removed to Hyattsville in 1885 and accepted the position of chief clerk of the claims divisions of the Treasury Department, Washington. He kept this office until 1890, when he was named as treasurer of the Mary land Agricultural College, which position he filled until the time of bis death. Dr. Owens was a gentleman of the old school and had warmly attached friends throughout this State. His wife, who survives him, is a sister of Mr. Charles A. Councilman, of Baltimore county. He is also survived by several children. In its last issue the New York Independent , in an editorial on “The Cabinet,” said : “The politician of the Cabinet is Mr. Hitchcock, whosucceeds Mr. Meyer as Postmaster General, and comes from the same State of Massachu setts. And yet we sincerely hope that the Postoffice is to be less and less a political ma chine. It is a great business; and business and politics are incompatible. If he will for. get that he has managed a great political cam paign, and will try to make the Department serve the people, and can extend its province, as so often recommended, he may win honor equal to that of the highest of his older asso ciates. It is a disgrace that our Postoffice should be more backward than in any other of the great countries. It is rival business selfishness that prevents its better service.” Mr. Daniel Rider, a very successful and highly respected commission merchant, com mitted suicide at his home, 2905 Bt. Paul street, Baltimore, on Monday morning last by shoot ing himself through the head. Mr. Rider had been in delicate health for some time and bad partially given up his business to recuperate, but his efforts in this direction were without satisfactory results and it is believed that de pression of mind over his physical troubles led him to commit the act. For many years Mr. Rider had been engaged in the grain and feed business at the corner of Greeumount avenue and Eager street and was known to thousands of Baltimore and Harford county people. He was a member of tbe old Corn and Flour Exchange and tbe Chamber of Com merce, and had served as a director of the lat ter. His two sons—Messrs. W. Whitridge Rider and Daniel Rider, Jr.—had been engaged in business with their father nearly a year. He is also survived by his widow and two daughters—Mrs. Alfred T. Hoen and Mrs. Conn, wife of Lieut. Wm. T. Conn, Jr., of the U. S. Navy. The advent of the automobile has brought about new road conditions. It has been pro posed that uniform automobile regulation laws be enacted in New York, New Jersey and Con necticut. Concerning this proposition tbe New York Tribune says: “It has been found that even the best of the macadam and telford roads which have been built in the last thirty years are unsuited to automobile traffic. They do not endure tbe impact and the friction of those ponderous and swift machines. Roads which were practically perfect for other traffic, which would have lasted for many years, have been reduced in the last two or three years to almost hopeless wrecks.” It is generally con ceded that the automobile is presenting a grave problem to the road builder, as no material but the most expensive kind can be found to withstand the rush of the motor. But for all that, it is idle and foolish to talk of abolishing the automobile or to desist from building good roads on account of it. It may not be so much of a road monger as alleged, and in due time invention willovercome its destructive powers. But whatever we think, it has come to stay —a fact the road builder may as well accept at once and do the best he can under the circum stances. Mr. Leigh Bonsal, the well known lawyer and independent Democrat, is strongly op posed to tbe disfranchising amendment that will come before the voters of Maryland this year. Mr. Bonsai says: “The relatively small negro population in Maryland is a con clusive reason why our white population need have no fear of negro domination. This whole disfranchisement question, in my opinion, is a very unwise movement on the part of Dem ocratic politicians seeking a partisan advantage and forgetting, as is usually the case, the wel fare of the population as a whole. The so called educational test is merely a device where by almost all the educated negroes, except these having property, will be disfranchised. The Foe amendment contained an educational test, but that amendment was defeated be cause the test was to be passed upon by incom petent election officials. There was also no proper provision for an appeal to the court. In the present amendmeut the arbitrary power of the election officials have been removed and appeals have been carefully provided for. But unfortunately, the test is not an educa tional one, but a requirement that the negro desiring to register shall write out correctly without any assistance at least 13 different things, many of which have no direct bearing upon his application to register. The more I have reflected upon this proposed test, tbe more convinced I have become that it is an absolutely dishonest thing.” Special to The Union. LETTER FROM ABROAD. The Outlook for the French Republic— Changes and Reforms that are Need ed-Glaring Instances of Admin istrative Incapacity—A Deca dence of Morals and Ideal i. Marseilles, France, March mb, 1909. Messrs Editors .-—ls the French Republic drift ing toward another revolution ? Foreign stu dents and travelers who visit France for tbe purpose of studying customs and events have a legitimate right to propose this apparently un conservative and rather sensational query, be cause tbe French people themselves are anx iously asking tbe same question. Surely the mere raising of such an Interrogatory does not imply that it must be answered in the affirma tive, but it does mean that a vast number of French citizens are dissatisfied and disgusted with the present regime, and that tbe third re public is approaching a dangerous crisis. Three things especially have impressed me in this connection; first, the popular and too often well-grounded lack of confidence in the honor of the judiciary and in tbe efficiency and integrity of the ministry; second, the decadence of re spect for the institution of tbe family; third, the incessant denunciations of governmental policies, and the alarmiDg predictions which are appearing with increasing frequency in conser vative and independent newspapers. One or two concrete incidents, not of absolutely vital importance in themselves, but testifying elo quently to tbe spirit of dissatisfaction and un rest. which is abroad upon the winds, will serve to indicate the crying need for changes and re forms, if not for revolution. The great question of the hour is still the miserable Steinheil affair, the murder mystery which has Impassioned tbe French public month after month. The real interest in the case (it would otherwise be nothing more than the murder of an ignoble husband by an unfaithful wife) lies in the fact that the singular attitude of the judiciary makes it tbe culmination, tbe climax of tbe scandalous manipulations which characterized successively the Dreyfus case, the Humbert case, and, in an altogether different manner, the death of Felix Faure. Tbe French people are heartily out of patience with these trials and investigations, in which the prose cuting officers and tbe government seem to act with the hesitating and embarrassed air of an accomplice. Tbe attitude of tbe ministers of justice toward this latest crime has been incon ceivable. The frightful part of it is that if the judges and magistrates had been permitted to pursue their course without the unauthorized intervention of the newspapers and the public, the truth of the affair would still be shrouded in darkness. In lesser, unimportant cases, which do not in volve “secrets of statc”and "hautes personages," the indifferent and lackadaisical methods of in vestigation now in vogue are equally calculated to weaken public confidence in the department of justice and police. One example will suffice. On the last night of December, 1908. a certaiD Monsieur and Madame Mattbieu, who lived in a modest residence in a suburb of Colombes, near Paris, were robbed and murdered. The crime was discovered by a butcher’s boy and promptly reported to the police, but the Parisian newspa per men were upon the scene three hours in ad vance of Chief Hamard and his officers, and it was only upon reading the newspapers on the morning of January 2d that the police learned the most important and significant details of the crime. A week passed, the official detec tives were working always upon the hypothesis that the crime had been committed by a certain well known band of professional burglars. Then another reporter, by a clever piece of private investigation, proved that the detectives were off the scent, and even succeeded in furnishing a very definite description of the real murderer. The officers shamefacedly acknowledged their error, but they have not yet landed tbe author of the crime. The reporters are ahead of the police nearly every time a crime is committed— not that the French reporters are keener or more intelligent than the American or English news paper men, but simply because the French po lice service, theoretically the most scientific and finely organized body in the world, is practically slow and inefficient. The officers occupy them selves with microscopic analysis of cigar ashes and with the measuring of footprints to tbe thousanth part of a hair’s breadth, when they should be grabbing the criminal by the collar and whacking him over tbe head with a hickory club. France is one of the richest countries in the world. Its citizens pay heavy taxes and have a right to demand the very best police protec tion. They have all the more right to demand a first-class secret service and police administra tion because it is in France that the theoretical science of criminology has reached its highest perfection. Another glaring instance of administrative in capacity or Indifference is seen in the miserable condition of the streets of Paris after a series of snow storms just before Christmas. For two days residents and merchants (the latter losing thousands of dollars) waited patiently for the department of public works to begin clearing tbe principal thoroughfares, then they appoint ed a delegation of protest. Tbe delegation found the office of the commissioner closed and locked and learned that he was absent enjoying him self in his villa on the Mediterranean. The frightful condition of the streets was not re lieved until January 2d, after an estimated loss of millions by the merchants. The French taxpayer seems to be paying more and more every year and getting less and less for bis money. The result is a deep-rooted and growing dissatisfaction with the present admin istration and often with the present system of government. The situation is aggravated by the fact that the Royalist party, with its President to tbe throne, the Duke of Orleans and the Bonapartist parly, with Victor Bonaparte at its bead, are both extremely active and waiting patiently to seize the first opportunity to advance their re spective causes. The question is very much “alive.” A few weeks ago, when Jean Seraphin Mattis, a weak minded garcon-de-cafe, assaulted President Fallierers while the latter was prome nading in the Champs Elysees, the first question asked was whether Mattis was a Royalist or a Bonapartist, and whether the action was ap proved by the two pretendents. When M. Cle menccau makes a speech against some proposed piece of legislation, which does not meet with his approval, be invariably declares that this or that course of action is dangerous because it “would lead to a restoration of the monarchy.” I do not know exactly why, and it certainly seems strange, but when the average French man complains of the corruption of the govern ment he concludes, not by expressing his desire for the reversal of the Clemenceau administra tion, but for the overthrow of the republic, after which he would establish another repub lic or a constitutional monarchy, according as he is republican or royalist. The well known hostility of tbe church toward the present form of government is another tact to be taken into consideration. DECADENCE OF MORALS AND IDEALS. Nearly all moralists who visit France deplore the decline of respect for wbat they call the "in stitution of tbe family,” and view with alarm the increasing tolerance of the French public toward temporary illegal liasons and toward the cases of open conjugal infidelity, which have become so common among certain classes. But these are thii gs of which France certainly has not the exclusive monopoly, and it seems to mu that the real, crying social evil of the times in France is something deeper, something that re quires a different definition. It is tbe decay of ideals, rather than the decay of institutions; the decadence of the “sentiment of maternity” on the one side and the decay of the sentiment of personal bravery and honor on the other. Tbe great department stores of France have recently, by the publication of statistics cover ing a period of 8 or 10 years, brought to light two curious and significant facts: A decade ago, in the toy departments, the sale of dolls for the girls and lead soldiers for the boys netted every season a profit larger than that of all other kinds of toys combined. Since that time the sale of dolls and lead soldiers has steadily decreased until this last Christmas season it amounted to less than one-twentieth part of the sales of tbe same articles for the same season ten years ago. The little girls are satisfied with nothing but Jewelry and expensive articles of personal adorn ment, while the little boys want their Christmas presents in checks or in money. "Dolls are so bothersome !’’ fretfully exclaims the little French girl, whose mama suggests a dolly for Christmas. “Lead soldiers are so foolish!" cries the little brother. And behind these two banal, childish exclama tions, reflecting the example offered by fathers and mothers, lurk the two powerful and insidi ous monsters that may one day deliver France weakened and degenerate into the bands of her hereditary enemies who are waiting patiently on the other side of the German and Austrian frontier. The first of these monsters is Race Suicide. Tbe second is Antimilitarism. PESSIMISTIC PREDICTIONS. Certainly no single one of the facts which I have cited would justify an observer, abovo all a stranger, a foreigner, in declaring categori- j cally that another revolution is brewing In France. Therefore, because I realize that the | views and opinions of an outsider are always I superficial, and also because I do not want to , lay myself open to the charge of distorting facts simply for tbe sake of writing a “yellow” and sensational article, I prefer to draw no general conclusions but to entrench myself behind the 1 words of an eminent French philosopher, politi- ' cal economist and Journalist, M. A. De Mun. of tbe Academic Francaise. In a recent editorial this writer, comparing the conditions of modern j society with those of the 18th century, which ' brought about the downfall of the ancient re gime, declared that the rich bourgeoise, now “in tbe saddle” was incapable, as was the -old no bility, to defend itself against approaching revo lution, because this bourgeoise government was I nourishing In its very bosom, by its policies and acts, the germ of destruction. Explaining bis pessimistic prophecy he made the following charges: “The oligarchy which has been in power for the past quarter of a century has appropriated to its own exclusive profit and enjoyment all tbe £rl vileges.exemptions and beneflts.whicb should b shared by the entire nation. Further, it has demoralized the masses, accustoming them by precept and example to forget their honor and their Ideals and to fix their minds upon the sole d' sire for material profit and gain. "It bas systematically destroyed the religious life of the nation, and is now engaged in a war to the death against the last vestiges of a Christi anity which seems to be struggling in vain against hostile laws and official persecution. "It has corrupted and disgraced the courts of justice by political Intrigues. "By an aberration, which will alone suffice to condemn the third republic in tbe eyes of bis tory, it has disorganized and demoralized tbe army of France and exposed it to tbe assaults of the antimilitarists who seek its destruction. "If, with all its errors, this oligarchic bour geoise government, which is neither ‘of the people or by the people.’ had at least ruled ‘for the people,' there would be some hope, but it has never had at heart the welfare of the masses. Identified with the financial interests, leaning upon the captains of industry and heads of monopolies for support, aiding illegally in their enterprises aDd sharing In their profits, it has been the oppressor of the laboring classes.” Such isth- substance of the denunciation by a French philosopher of the French government under the third republic. Joseph de Maitre beard in 1789 “le sermon que la Providence precheaux rois.” Today the same Providence is preaching another sermon, no leas terrible, to the kings of a corrupt republic. Will they be deaf as their predecessors ? Seabrook. Sew FROM 15 TO 25 TONS OF WHEAT OR OAT STRAW, delivered. Apply to LOUIS P. KNOX. Parkvilie, Md. Residence—Near Harford Road.

The object of this suit is to procure a decree for the sale of certain property in Baltimore county, in this State. The bill states that Blasius Wolf is the owner of certain fee simple property in Canton, Balti more county, being at tbe intersection of the centre of Hudson and Clinton streets, bounding one hundred and four feet on the centre of Hud son street by a depth south of one hundred and eighty-five feet to tbe centre of a twenty-foot alley, which property said Blasius Wolf acquired under the will of his father. Simon Wolf, of record with the Register of Wills for Baltimore county. Second.- That said property is subject to a mortgage to the Canton Avenue Building, Loan and Savings Association of Baltimore City, dated January 26th, 1906. and recorded among the Mortgage Records of Baltimore county, in Liber W. P. C., No. 264, folio 121, etc., to secure twelve hundred dollars, which said mortgage is in de fault and about to be foreclosed, and that tbe State and county taxes are due and tbe Collector about to advertise said property for sale. Third.— That said property is valued at five thousand dollars and is unimproved, except by two small dwellings, which bring about thirteen dollars income per month, and is otherwise un productive. That if said property be sold for taxes, or under said mortgage, it would be sacri ficed and that it is advisable that said property be sold.

Mch. 20—5 t COPY OF CERTAIN CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN The Towson Improvement Association and the Baltimore County Water and Electric Company. TOWSON, MD., MARCH 11TH, 1009. MR. ALBERT H. WEHH, General Manager and Vice-Presideut of the Baltimore County Water and Ele< Dear Si':— ln the petition recently filed in tho office of the Highways Commission of Baltimore county, asking the removal of the restrictions upon the introduction into Towson, Luther ville and vicinities of the Patapsco water sup ply, it is set forth "that an impartial investiga tion has disclosed that the water from the Aig burth well is inadequate to supply the demands of the territory In question.” Admitting for the purposes of this communi cation, and to avoid discussion, that this investi gation was fair, as far as it went, the fact remains nevertheless, that the Towson Improvement As sociation and the community generally never have been satisfied with those tests. And the ground for this dissatisfaction rests in the fact that the investigation in question stopped short of the thoroughness contemplated and intended at the time it was instituted. The report of the engineer who made the in vestigation gives 279feetasthedepth of the well, while there is available evidence in tho form of records and personal observation to show that it was originally drilled at least 315 feet in depth. To make the investigation thorough, final, con- MARCH 18TH, 1909. DAVID g. Mclntosh, esq , Chairman Committee on Water Supply, Towson Improvement Association, Towson, Md.: Dear Sir .-—Acknowledging receipt of your let ter of the 11th inst. we desire to say that it has uniformly been the desire of this Company to meet every reasonable request which has been made in connection with the matter of water supply to Towson, Luthervillo and vicinities. As instances of this desire we might refer to the request made on April 12th, 1907, by Major Yel lott, for permission to test our Towson or Alg burth (as it is generally called) well, which re quest was promptly granted, but the permission granted was not then availed of. Again, some time during August. 1908. the Towson Improve ment Association, through a committee appoint ed on the subject of water supply, made a simi lar request, and indeed we might say that we suggested this method of determining the true state of facts to said committee, which was then composed of Messrs. N. D. R. Allen. Dixon C. Walker and we believe, Mr. Henry G. Shirley, though Messrs. Allen and Walker alone were those who conferred with us relative to the mat ter at that time. This request of the Improve ment Association was also promptly granted, and accordingly Mr. Robert L. Clemmitt, of Bal timore. was retained by the Association as an expert to make the test. Before agreeing to make the test, Mr. Clem mitt imposed three conditions, as set forth in our communication to tbe residents and water takers of Towson, Lutherville and viciDities, dated September 3d. 1908, notifyingsaid residents and water takers of the proposed making of said test and the possible temporary shortage of wa ter resulting from the same. The conditions named bv Mr. Clemmitt were as follows: First—That your Association notify the Wa ter Company of my (Mr. Clemmitt’s) connection with the case and secure their full approval of the same, so that all parties may go into the mat ter in good faith. Second—That the Water Company turn the entire plant over to me (Mr. Clemmitt) for the time being with the privilege of using such of their apparatus as I may desire and taking out any which I deem unfit and substituting other apparatus temporarily, with the understanding that the entire plant will be restored to its origi nal condition. ... , Third—The entire test is to be made within a period of three days or seventy-two hours from the time of beginning same, which time will be agreed upon,between myself (Mr. Clemmitt) and the Water Company, notice of which will at once be given your Association. This Company gave its full consent to tbe mak ing of said test upon the conditions named. The test was begun on September 7th, and was to continue until completed, and to this end Mr. Clemmitt was given full charge and control of our plant without let or hindrance of any kind from us. In order to facilitate tbe making of said test and to assist. Mr. Clemmitt in every possible way in tbe prosecution of the same, we placed at his service and call two of our men who were to render such assistance, if any, as he September 7tb, being Labor Day and a holiday, proved to be a very convenient day for the mak ing of said test, in that it enabled most of the residents of Towson and vicinities to be present and follow up each step of the test without per sonal inconvenience or loss of time from their other duties, and accordingly Messrs. Allen and Walker, together with a number of others, were present during the making or said test, practi cally from start to finish. We, on the other hand, were content to leave tho matter entirely In the hands of the expert seleoted by your As sociation and accordingly had no expert present to represent us, except that the J'cltM’ called for a few moments in the morning to see that every facility for making said test was being ex tended to Mr. Clemmitt, and that the Chief En gineer of this Company called for a few mo ments in the afternoon to see if any further as sistance were required or desired. Mr. Clemmitt concluded bis tost after about six hours and left our premise;; not, however, until after he had inquired of tho committee whether everything bad been satisfactorily con ducted and whether anything else were desired by said committee in connection with said test, and had been assured that everything was satis- report on this test made by Mr. Clemmitt to your Association, dated October oth, 1908,after stating carefully each step in said test, summa rizes tho results and findings of said test in tho concluding words following: “Consequently the well does not yield sufficient water to properly supply present consumers on the system in Tow son and vicinity.” A copy of Mr. Clemmitt’s re port was forwarded to us by Mr. Allen, the chairman of the Water Committee, in accord ance with the understanding had by us with said committee. . ,* , . .. The time asked and allowed for making said test was 6eventy-two hours or three days. That only six hours of this time was consumed is no fault of ours. The selection of Mr. Clemmitt as the expert for the Association was made by the Association or by its properly authorized com mittee, and, though we agreed with thecommit tee that the selection had been a good one, we had no control of this phase of the matter. The test was made in the presence of the committee and other members of your Association, and if Mr. Clemmitt was not proceeding properly or to the satisfaction of said committee or other mem bers, his method should have been corrected at the time the test was under way. so that said methods could have been changed and the test conducted in accordance with the views of the committee. If the test was not as thorough as was desired, this was a matter entirely within the control of the committee and should have been corrected at the time of the making of said test. Certainly Mr. Clemmitt. having been re tained by the committee, should not have been permitted to depart before he had satisfactorily concluded his test, nor should he have been as sured that his work was satisfactory before leaving, and that nothing further was desired of him or his assistants. Instead, however, of doiag anything while the test was in progress, Mr. Clemmitt was permit ted to conclude the test and to make his report, and now the Association, as is indicated in your letter of the 11th inst., undertakes to ignore the first condition named by Mr. Clemmitt, namely, that the parties should go into the matter in good faith, meaning thereby that all parties should abide by the result of the test, and now say that the Association never has been satisfied with this test. We are indeed at a loss to ac count for this condition and the reason for dis satisfaction with the work of the expert of your own selection, especially when so short a part of the total time asked and allowed for the test bad been consumed. , , . . t Your letter now reauests permission to take charge of our well and pump station entirely, in order to take out the pump and clear the well of any and all obstructions and drilling it down to TO CREDITORS.

This leature of the investigation, you will recall, was insisted upon last September. To this end, viz: Going to the bottom of the well and to avoid the tedious litigation that must otherwise necessarily follow between your Com pany and individuals we submit the following proposition to wit: That you turn the Aigburth well and apparatus over to a committee of the Towson Improvement Association, with Mr. j Henry G. Shirley as engineer in charge, to re move the pump and introduce well digging ap paratus lor the purpose of removing the ob struction and cleaning out the well to its origi nal bottom. This “opening up” process to be followed by tests mace with a Knowles lift pump, after which the entire plant will be restored to its former condition, except as to the depth of the well. Accept this proposition and the Towson Im provement Association as a body will abide by consequences, whether such investigation prove favorable to that organization or otherwise. Awaiting your prompt and definite answer, lam, Very respectfully yours, (Signed) D. G. McINTOSH, Chairman of the Committee on Water Supply of Towson Improvement Association. its original bottom, inferring thereby that the well either has, of itself, or has been in some manner, partially filled up. upon the assumption that the well was originally, as you state, three hundred and fifteen feet deep, all of which it is intended shall be done under tne direction of Mr. Henry G. Bhiriey, who was a member of the committee which had charge and control of the test made on its behalf by Mr. Ciemmitt. At the time of the acquisition by us of this well, together with the distributing pipe system of the Towson Water Company, we were in formed by the then officers and directors of said company that the well was approximately three hundred and fifty feet deep, and assuming this information to be correot we relied thereon without measuring its depth ourselves. When we removed the old deep well pump and installed a compressed air pumping system some time ago, in the etfort to increase the output of said well, we found that an error bad been made in the depth of the well and that as a matter of fact it was only of the depth reported by Mr. Ciemmitt, namely, two hundred and seventy-nine feet, so that, as to the depth of said well, we had been originally misinformed as well as yourselves. To undertake what your letter now proposes, namely, to open up the well and drill it to its original depth, assuming, of course, that the well is not now of its original depth, would require the shutting down of our plant for possibly sev eral weeks while a portion of fhe pump station building would have to be removed in order to admit of the use of well-drilling machinery,and should this work be permitted and undertaken, the entire communiiy of Towson, Lutherville and vicinities would be obliged to do without a water supply until the work proposed in your letter is completed. Further than this, there can be no assurance given that in attempting to drill deeper, the water, instead of being in creased, will not be diminished, because of the possible opening of outlets in the rock forma tion below, which would result in the loss of a part or all of the water in said well. Therefore, we cannot see anything which would justify us in undertakidg to permit any experiment of this sort with our well, especially since, in such case, we would lay ourselves open to endless claims for damages to our consumers for failure tosup ply them with water during the progress of your proposed experiments, because, as would then be the case, this failure would be due to a matter which would be held to be in our control. Anxious as we have always been, and are even today, to grant any reasonable request, we are obliged, after moat careful consideration of every phase of this matter, both as to the facts and the law relating thereto, to refuse the per mission asked for in your letter. On March 6th you called upon Mr. A. deR. Sappington, our counsel, to inquire, as you have done on several previous occasions, whether or not it would be possible to lease from this Com pany its well and pumping equipment at Aig burth for the purpose of independently of this Company supplying therefrom water to Tow son, Lutherville and vicinities to those who may desire such supply. On the 24th instant, we are informed, the County Commissioners of Balti more county will hear a petition filed by certain residents and property owners of Towson and vi cinity, asking for the revocation of certain pro visions in a franchise granted to this Company some time ago, under which provisions it is re quired that this Company shall supply water to Towson, Lutherville and vicinities, only from the well at Aigburth, the purpose of said peti tion being, we assume, to permit this Company to supply in the territory named the same water which is now furnished to practically every por tion of Baltimore county along the system of this Company from Relay and St. Denis to Ca tonsvllle, Govanstown and Hamilton, the same water which is about to be furnished to Hale thorpe, and is being demanded in Lauravilleand in all of the developments along the Belairroad. We have given the subject of leasing this well very careful consideration and can see no reason why those of Towson and Lutherville and vicini ties, who desire to continue to operate said well, should be denied the privilege of doing so, ex cept. of course, that this Company should not be asked to assume any burden because of suoh arrangement, and further that in order to dis tribute the water from said well, that the pro posed users lay their own water pipes for this purpose. Accordingly we are now prepared to say that should the County Commissioners de cide on the 24th instant to grant the petition re ferred to. thus allowing this Company to furnish in the prohibited territory the Catonsvllle wafer supply, we will, for a period of three months after the granting of the same, allow the station at Aigburth to remain intact in its present con dition, we refraining from removing any part of the boiler, pumps, air compressor and other operating equipment contained therein and necessary for the operation of said station, so that you and your associates may determine whether or not you desire to undertake the leas ing of said well and pumping equipment, to gether with the land upon ana the building in which the same is located. Should you decide to lease said well we will be very glad to enter upon such an arrangement with such persons as may come forward for this purpose, upon some reasonable terms and con ditions to be hereafter agreed upon, said lease to provide for an annual payment to this Company of two hundred and fifty dollars as a rental, said payment to be satisfactorily guaranteed and as sured, so that in this manner it may become pos sible for you and your associates of Towson, Lutherville and vicinities to lav distributing pipes from the said well and pump station, in cluding the necessary standpipe required for continuous service, and to supply water to those who desire service from said well in preference to the Catonsville supply of this Company as now furnished elsewhere in Baltimore county. We regret very much that we cannot accede to your request for permission to make the test mentioned in your letter of the 11th instant, with its attendant changes and possible serious alterations in the present situation, but feel Quite sure that a solution of the difficulty of your objection to the introduction of the Catons ville supply into Towson, Lutherville and vicini ties. can be met by those who so object through the leasing of our well as outlined above, and the providing of the necessary distributing sys tem for the operation thereof. We would be very glad to have you take up and fully consider the matter of leasing our well and pumpiug station, and in the event of the granting of the petition to be heard on the 24th instant by the County Commissioners, to have you advise us at as early a date as possible thereafter as to your pleasure in tho premises. We are forwarding a copy of your letter of the 11th instant, and of this reply thereto, to each of the newspapers published in Towson, with the request that the same be published in their respective issues of Saturday, the 20th instant.
