Land Owners In Some In

For Their Property.
Concord : s threatened with' exclus
ion from the new line of the Pied
mont & Northern Railway. This be
came known Tuesday lyhen officials
of the company came here to confer
with officials of the Chamber of Com
merce who have been working for the
past six months to Ret the extension
of the system from Charlotte to Win
ston-Salem via Conbord.
' The line is to be built. Chamber* of
Commerce officials have been .assured,
but it wifi not touch Concord unles
come landowners in the county are
....convinced that the railway eompany
will not pay, the price they are de
manding for their real estate.
The matter, now rests with these
landowners. They can bring the line
to Concord by offering right of ways
for reasonable sums, or - they pan force
the I*. & N. officials to build their line
through the Poplar Teat neighborhood
by demanding a thousand dollars an !

It has been learned on good author
ity that the interurbau company now
has its surveyors at work on a line
going direct from Charlotte to Kan
napolis-via Poplar Tent, and this
line will be used unless owners pf the
property along the route from Char
lotte to Concord are willing to make
It has also been learned on author
ity that cannot be questioned that the
line via Poplar Tent would cost less
than the line via Concord, and for
that reason P. & X. officials are in
clined to adopt it. However, at the in
sistence of local citizens, headed by
Chamber of Commerce officials, they
have held the-matter open so that an
effort can be made to secure the right
of ways through Coneortl at reason- 1
“The P. &X. is not going. to pay a
thousand dollars an acre for right of (
ways," one Chamber of Commerce of
ficial stated in discusieng the matter. |
"and it is up to the citizens of Oon- !
cord who want to see tlfe line brought
here to persuade property owners to
give the : r land at a cheaper rate. Con
cord is vitally interested in this prop
osition. It means much to the busi
ness interests of the eity, blit we are
goiifg to lose it unless we can get the
co-operation of every one.
"Lack of co-operation has always ]
been a handicap to Concord. The,
growth of the city has been hampered!
by men wbo have been unwilling t?k
make concessions for the common good. I
Surely, in this instance, we are not i
going to let this proposition fall
through because of selfishness."
One official of the P. & X. who was
in Coneotd this week, told Chamber
of Commerce officials that in many
instances property owners had given
the right of way through their lands.
They asked nothing, it was pointed
out, realising that the building- of the
line through their land would increase
its value, and at the same time would
serve to build up the entire section
served by the line.
This official also told Chamber of
Commerce 'officials that several land
owners on the route via Poplar Tent
were so anxious to get the line that
• they had voluntarily offered free right
of ways. Some of these land owners
live in Mecklenburg and some in
Cabarrus, it was said. In no instance,
it was said, had property owners along
this route demanded anything like a
thousand dollars ap acre for their

Arab Says “Needle’s Eye” of Bible
Refers to Wall Gate.
1 Pittsburgh, Kan., Oct. 21 — UP)—
The “needel’s eye” referred to in t’u'e
New Testament is a small gate in the'
Wall of Jerusalem, not a . sewing
needle, at least in the opinion of Job
N’egiem, 23-year-old Arab guide in the
Holy Land, who is studying music at
the Pittsburgh State Teachers Col
The Biblical passage to which th's
modern Job has adduced a new mean
ing is in Mark 10.-25, wherein Jesus
chided those wlyo “trust in riches,”
saying: “It is easier for a camel to
go through the ejukof a needle, than
for a rich man to enter the kingdom
of heaven.” ,
“The needle's -eye,” says Xegiem,
“commonly misundnerstood as the eye
of a sewing needle, is known to Jeru
salem as a small gate within a larger
gate in the city walls. It is for the
use of pedestrians after the larger
gate is closed for protection. The
gate is eo low that an average-sized
