MARYLAND ROAD TO CAPITAL. Legislature Gave $90,000 for Boule vard to This City. The passage and signing by Gov. W&rfleld at Annapolis of Dr. Hill's bill providing for the construction of a modern highway from Haltlmore to this city will doubtless mark the advent of a new era In the history of the two cities. The bill provides for an appropriation of $90,000 for the construction of this highway. $30,000 to be available each year for three consecutive years. The road will be built under the direct supervision of the state commission on highways, which Is composed of Gov. War field, Comptroller Atkinson, Dr. Ira P.em sen, president of the Johns Hopkins Uni versity, and Dr. R. W. Sylvester, president of the Maryland Agricultural College. Dr. William Bullock Clark, superintendent of , the Maryland Geological Survey, assisted i by W. W. Crosby, chief highway engineer, will personally look after the construction of the highway. As soon as It was announced that the governor had signed the bill, steps were taken by Dr. Clark and Mr. Crosby to be gin the work of Inspecting the prospective route and arranging for a corps of sur veyors to begin an outline of the plans as soon as possible. Mr. Crosby will within a few days go oyer the entire route and de termine. as well as possible, a course for the surveyors. As soon as the route is de termined upon, the plans will be submitted to the state commission for approval and specifications will be drawn. Owing to the preliminary steps necessary before the ac tual work of construction can be begun, It Is probable that the boulevard will not be completed for several years. Wherever feasible, according to the ap propriation bill, the commission may follow the route of the old Baltimore and Wash ington road and, when practicable, use the old roadbed. Wherever necessary, the priv ilege of deviating from the old course to straighten the route or escape grades or railroads has been granted. It is also stated specifically f' at the road must be not lcs3 than .SO an.! not more than 00 feet wide at any point &:?d, in case the course of the sur veyors may pass through a town or village where the main street does not permit of that width. It will be necessary to open a new route around the place. ?Hiat tlie new road will be made of mac adam lias practically been decided, though the results of the Investigation by the sur veyors will be laid before the commission before any steps are taken toward prepar ing for the construction. The boulevard will pass through Balti more, Howard and Prince George coun ties and will be known as State Road No. 1. Final Exercises of Celebration.

April Xeeting of Woman's League Held at Arlington Hotel. The April meeting of the Woman's League of the National Junior Republic was held at the Arlington Hotel Friday, with Mrs. Charles W. Fairbanks In the chair. It was voted that hereafter the monthly meetings of the league will be held the second Fri days instead of the tlrst Saturdays, as here tofore. Mrs. C. 1). Merwyn made a report as chairman of the ball committee and was tendered a rts'ng vote of thanks for the arduous work she had performed In making the ball such a gratifying success. The net receipts of the ball will be near *600, about $550 having been turned into the league treasury, and some tickets have not yet been settled for. Resolutions of thanks were unanimously voted to a number of persons for valuable help which contributed to the success ot the ball. Thanks -were also voted to the president ot tne league, Mrs- Fairbanks, for her assistance in the league's work for the Ave ysare ot fts ea'stenee awl neatly at the ball. Mrs. Fairbanks lp tuw thanked the directors, who had been so kind and help ful to Mr, and who, she said, bs4 flwW [ There "was* no higher wortT than that Mr | the young, she said, sad she hoped that ' while the members continued to do all they ! could for the future ettisens of the great republic, we would mm be aMe ?? remain ber the homeless girls and devise some way to better their condition. Mrs. Sanders Johnston reported her vls'.t to the Junior Republic at xt?e time of trie recent meeting of tlie bo'rd or trustees. Many of the graduates of the republic liave t>een paid the money which was due them when they left the Institution and are doing well in the different vocations they have chosen. The young citizens are paid for their labor In the coin of the republic, and when they graduate, this money, which they have been able to save, is redeemed, dollar for dollar, in United States currency. This method encourages thrift, and the worthy citizen who leaves the republic will not go out empty handed. It has been a source of regret that when some of the boys have gone out there were not the funds necessary to redeem the'r coin saved, and the Institution has been in debt to them. It. was reported that Mrs. Johnston, at the Loan arid Trust building, has for distribu tion a number of beautifully printed pamphlets Illustrating the Junior lfU-publto with tine halftone pictures which wl.l an swer many of the questions daily neked about the work there. A statistical leaflet accompanies the pamphlet, whtc.i shows tn? capacity of the institution, the cost of maintenance and the different organizations contributing thereto. Among those present at the meeting of the league were Mrs. Fairbanks. Mrs. M. S. Lockwood. Mrs. Carman, Mrs. Merwin, Mra, McLaughlin, Mrs. Stephens, Mrs. McNabb, Mrs. Masehmeyer, Mrs. Ramsay. Mrs. Hare, Mrs. Sperry, Mrs. McLean and Mrs. Johnston. Building Association Election.
