EXPLAIN THE
BOULEVARD
AMENDMENTS
Special to THE EVENING JOURNAL.
STATE HOUSE, Dover, Del., Feb.
17.—The largest attendance at any
session of the Legislature, including
during the fight for United Stales
Senator, was that when the General
Assembly, in joint session, this after
noon gave a hearing to General T.
Coleman duPont on the Boulevard
proposition. Every «inch of available
space In the House chamber was oc 1 -
cupled by men from nil parts of the
I state. It was 1.05 o'clock when the
Senate joined with the House for the
hearing. The five legislatives steno
graphers took a report of the pro
ceedings for future reference.
An air of suppressed excitement
prevailed when the session opened.
"Pay!lamentary usage will obtain."
announced President pro tem Mar
shall. He said Robert Richards would
represent General duPout as counsel
and Henry Ridgcly would represent
the other side. Mr. Richards in open
ing said neither ho nor General du
Pont anticipated that there would bo
a general debate today. He explained
that they had asked for a hearing to
try to clear up misunderstandings and
some grounds for objection.
"We .came here to frankly discuss
the situation," said Mr. Richards.
"We are not here to advocate accep
tance of this boulevard."
Mr. Richards then called on Gen
eral duPont to speak.
General duPont said he was not
prepared to make a speech. "But I
am prepared to build the boulevard if
the Stale wants it," he said. He then
invited questions from any member,
or anybody. Henry Ridgely, for the
opposition, suggested that General
duPont could direct the procedure
along more beneficial lines by a
statement rather than by him being
subjected to questions.
Senator Reinhardt asked that the
amendments to the Boulevard Cor
poration law be explained.
Mr. Richards explained them along
the lines of General duPont's recent
letter to Governor Miller which was
laid before the General Assembly.
One amen Intent would provide for a
boulevard extension down the west
ern side of Sussex county. Another
amendment, Mr. Richards explained,
was in regard to the condemnation of
land for the boulevard. The only pur
pose he said would enable a record
to be kept of the condemnation of
land which unfortunately is not done
now.
A second change proposed embodies
the idea of permitting the Boulevard
company, after the land is condemned
by five commissioners, to go ahead
and build the road after putting up
a bond to cover any damages. An
appeal cun be taken for a sheriff's
| jury of twelve to view the same land
but, Boulevard construction could go
on pending the appeal.
The third change proposed is In
the method of determining the amount
of the award.

consideration the actual value of the

SAY BALDWINS
Recent reports that tho Baldwin
Locomotive Company had purchased
itic plant of the Diamond State Steel
Company in South Wilmington gained
fresh impetus this morning when it
was announced that ore was being
dumped in the yards of the plant. Ac
cording to the rumors this morning
the Baldwin Company, which have a
large plant at Eddystone, had planned
to make all castings tor their Eddy
stone plant here and that the ore is
being shipped here preliminary to the
opening of the mill.
John Rirhardson, Jr., president of
the National Bank of Delaware, and
trustee of the company of Philadel
phians who own the plant said he had
heard nothing of the sale of the plant,
nor of any negotiations pending be
tween the Baldwin Company and the
owners of the property.
Mr. Richardson said the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad Company had re
quested that a siding in the yards of

said had been done. He believed that
this fact had led to the rumor of the
sale of the plant.

A handsome specimen of f Irish po

good sample of what western farms
can produce.
The cost of sending.lt by parcels
post to Wilmington was 12 cent»,
which is believed to be a record for
the shipment of a breakfast over a dis
tance of 1,700 miles.
With the potato came several an
nouncement cards boosting Twin Falls
and an Invitation lo visit the city and
partake of a breakfast consisting of
products from the farms In that vl
clnlty. The Invitation closes with
the following:
"But if it shall be your misfortune
to be forced to decline this urgent
invitation to bo with us In person,
then please take this good Twin Falls,
Idaho, potato, bake It, break It and
cat it at seven o'clock February 17th
and be with us in spirit."
The potato Is a good example of the
advertising schemes wiiieh western
cities are using every day to advertise
their products.
