IN WTEHDMAS IINE
Sinca the last of the direc
tors of the Commercial Club, at which
time a committee was appointed to
look into the proposition to aid in es
tablishing' the Alamance, Durham &
t Orange Railway Company, interest in
the matter in this city has steadily ia-
creas'jJ. Many cf the raty’s finattciars
in spenkinff of the proposition have
expressed confidence that it would pay
the promoters and also would be a
great thing for Durham county.
WorJ received from Chapel Kill is
to the effect that the business mfen and
financiers of that sectioi are also
*" greatly,interested in the proposal ana
it seenu nearly certain that the people
til Burljngrton and Alamance county
will do their snare.
The charter was passed in the last
general assembly and according tc
^cod business men offers excellent ad-
vasitag? from an investment stand
It now .seems that the matter is up
TO the promoters to get busy and pie-
sent the prosition to the three coun-
ses. The leaders of the movement live
in Burlington, but Durham and Chap
el Bill men have s%iiified their inter,-
:ir-n ol" auiins in getting the line.
One of ilie uttractivc features of
the chi'.vter 3= that townships, or towns
votiiijj bonds for the building^ of the
road U'.ny keep all taxes collected on
ihe. road in such townships, or towns,
separate from the general fund and
apply them to the payment of the
l;onds. Thus they help finnticc the
mad, and the road pays the money
l;ack to them.
That the road wou.d be pi-caU'ft
niiuns ever ilcri.ed for opening up
ihe country Ijotwecji Huriinjjton and
liurhani is thouirhl eertain by local
vAipit^ilists, They slate that oi’.e prom
inent OraERe county man has already
announced that he would erect a big

line iHoVu At the present
lime fit,* .slat£.i there are no facilities
for getting the manufactured materl-.
al. uway from the .’rite on which he
pr'-.posi^s it> build.
There have been many other rea
sons offered as to why such a road
would be a nucccjs, II is pointed out
that Ourham would profit by the road
more than any other town, city or
county, as it would brinir thousands of
dollar.s of trade hero monthly. It
would al.M cause the population of
Purhara to grow and would bring this
city in dh^t toudi with Chapd Hill,
making that town the same as a sub
urb of Durham.
According to all cipilalLsts who have
;«-> estimated ir.to the nronosition, it
seems that it should be a paying prop-
Mition from the very start. No one
can .see why the road diould not pay a
good dividend and also be the means
of bringing the tiiree counties men
tioned into close communication.
lii every way the road is expectsd
to prove profitable to Durham and a
convenioTice to tlie 30,000 population
of this citi'.
