' T 111 | ' ASSOCIATED i PRESS ' DISPATCHES ' I VOLUME XXV Extension Os Lines Os P. & N. May Miss This City By Several Miles ROUTE VIA POPLAR TENT CONSIDERED Officials of the Company Unwilling to Pay Prices Demanded Now for the Right of Ways. * SURVEY MADE OF THE NEW ROUTE Land Owners In Some In stances Are Demanding Thousand Dollars Acre 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 ! acre for their lands as they are noV doing. 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 . eoueession.4. 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 able prices. “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 land. ~ One business man of Concord who has been untiring in his efforts to get the line through this city, said it "seems' to me we should have learned | | Today and Thursday ] ; KENNETH HAJtLAN AND | HELEN COSTELLO in I “Ranger of the Big Pines” Vitapraph Feature -vj X Also Our Gang Cqmedy | “JUBILO JR.” ,’ SoOWOffWQOOOOOOOOfItOOOfI - , iv v.- fikmk . • ....: i- At .. •. iVi.* The Concord Daily Tribune North Carolina’s Leading Small City Daily v • ♦ our lesson from Knnnapolis." ‘ "Kannapolis would be n port o’ Concord today if property ownet-< had not tried to get unreasonable prices for their property when the late James \V. Cannon sought a site for new mills," he said. "We nil realize now the great loss that came to Concord when Mr. Cennon was* forced to sock property elsewhere. Laud owners here then nppaijfntly thought Mr. Cannon had to build here. He show ed them that lie did not. "The P. & N. officials are going to show us 'the same thing unless we co operate with them in-getting right of ways. They are not going to be ‘held up' because they have unlimited re sources. It will be a distinct reflec tion on Concord if wc force the P. & X. to come no nearer to Concord thau Poplar Tent, which is about six miles from the city.” Dr. T. X. Spencer, president, and other Chamber of Commerce officials •are redoubling their efforts now to get the line for Concord, Individ uals who arc not officers of the Cham ber hut who want to see Concord grow and prosper, have volunteered to con fer with property owners who are de manding what is described as “unrea sonable prices,” with the hape that they can assist in straightening out the problem that confronts the eity. The problem is n real one and un less it is settled in the near future Coneortl persons de-iring to ride the P. & / X. or ship freight mid express over it, will hnve to go to Poplar Tent to do so. POLES TALK OF HAVING KING; HENRY FORD IS MENTIONED Others Would Offer Throne to Duke of York or Some Other Member of Rlitish Royalty, Home, Oct. 21.—According to some l\)!isti politicians who ha,vo been pass ing through Italy, the Poles find their republic a heavy burden and are seri ously thinking of finding a\king. As usual with Poland, opinions are di vided as to the kind of-king to seek. One sect ion of the Nee-Monarchists wants the Duke of York, or at any rate, a member of tile British royal family. "The other, 'however, is in favor of an Ameriean business man. Henyy Ford has been seriously talked of as suitab'e. His supporters point out that he would still be able to carry on his vast automobile business, .as his presence would not be needed for every month in the year. And even ,if he retired from car making, lie could well afford to do it: the honor of kingship would make lip for any pecuniary sacrifices. The Fordites say t'hat Poland is in stieh a bady way financially that only a genuis in business can pull her out of the muddle. I *■ KILLED BY EXPLOSION OF DYNAMITE CHARGE ,W. A.

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 lege. 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 man must stoop low to go through it.” nr _ INVEST YOUR DOL- i LARS with us—r* i —BECAUSE our meth- | l ods., 1 management and plan give you unques- ’ tioned safety. | ; Our.
