WILL BE DISCUSSED Argrmnfents of P. W. Va. and Nickel Plate to Be Presented March 1,0. LONG CLAIMED BY BOTH ROADS WASHINGTON, Fen. U.--The conflicting applications of the Pittsburg West Virginia Railway and the Now York, Chicago St. Louis Railroad, which seek authority of the Interstate Commerce Commission to acquire control of the Wheeling Lake Erie Railway by purchase of capital stock, have been set for hear 1 ing March 10 before Assistant Finance Director Burnslde. Application of the Pl.ttebnrjj . West Virginia to acquire control of the Western Maryland Railway by stock purchase, is to be heard before Director Burnside April 9. ' Both the Wheeling Lake Brie and the- Western Maryland roads we're allocated to the Wabash-Seaboard system in the commission's complete plan for the consolidation of railroads. The Pittaburg West Virginia also would form a part of the new Wabo-sh system under the coin- nristfion's plan. The controversy between the Nickel Plato and the Pittsburg West Virginia over control of the; Wheeling dates back over a period of years. The Pittaburg road, eonl rolled by tha Taplin interests of Cleveland, was the foremost objector to the joint control of the Wheeling by the Nickel Plate, Baltimore P/hio, and New York Central, durinp hearings upon Ihe commission's complaint against the trunk lines under section 7 ot t h e Clayton Anti-trust Act. By da. cislon in the case, the commission Ordered the trunk lines to divest themselves oE their holdings in the Wheeling. Tho Baltimore Ohio and New York Central roads sold their Wheeling stock to the Allegheny Corporation. By ameuded order, the- commission appro'red a trust agreement whereby B. R. Fancher of the Cleveland should hold the stock formerly owned by the Baltimore £ Ohio, Now York Central and Nickel Plate, the Hxtter road securing certificates oE deposit for the stock. Under the terms of the agreement the stock was to bo hold in status quo until flnal disposition, of the Wheeling in consolidation proceedings. The Pittsburg W«st Virginia proposed to use the Wheeling as a link in a "through route" between two ftreat Lakes and the Atlantic Seaboard. Tho proposed route would comprise the Wheeling lAke Erie, Pittsbur's West Virginia and Western Maryland roads, and was intended by the Taplins as a "fifth system" for eastern trunk line territory. This propoaeU "fifth system" IE part ot the proposed Wabash-Seaboard system announced in the commission's consolidation plan.

No, the judge repeated the question He was jiot mistaken. "Why, yes, judge if you wouldn't mind," said the prisoner at tho bar, hardly believing tho news. "Very well, make an order committing this man to the county home,' directed the court. But for some retison or other the prisoner didn't take kindly to the county home. "Couldn't you make it workhouse, judge?" pleaded Charlie as he was led away. "Next" dhected the judge. The "next" happened to be William Douglass, negro ol liuerssne township, who had been stealing chickens almost as regularly as Fox has bean breaking window glaas panes.

A1, present firemen are locati d at the corner of West Crawford avenue and Seventh street, West Sid \ and at th« corner of Fairview avenue and South Pittsburg street. Under tho arra/iKezneu's which are to be brought fo the .attention of the school, public and parochial, authorities, there will be patrol3 -established at every school building in tluj city. It was cited that in places two streets leading to the structure are in need of added protection. While serving aa police head at TJn- iontciwn, Chief Wall in reduced tho system In tha countyseat and it is still !n vogue. Other communities have tried out the plan and it !s working 1o perfection. It was said that there it, r o reason why the mi ttw couldn't work favorably in Conne lavilje. Six or eight boys woul 1 be selected at, each of the schools, ui der tho plan. If all arrangements ar \ worked out satisfactory, the ymmgiers will be selected and trained for I wo weeks by Chief Wall and then pu! to work.
