TABLE No. 2. Magnetic Bearings Between Monuments on the Maryland

West Virginia Boundary Line from the Potomac River to the Pennsylvania line, for October, 1910.

NOTE: The original observations were reduced at the office of the Coast and Geodetic Survey, Washington, D. C., by courtesy of the Superintendent of that Bureau.

If values for shorter intervals are desired, it will probably be best to obtain them by interpolating the declina

tion. The value for the line between Nos. 20 and 21 is probably less reliable than the others, as it depends upon only two results which differ by 10'.

We return herewith a financial statement showing in detail the money actually expended by the Commissioners for surveying and marking the boundary line under the decree in this case, including the per diem compensation of all the Commissioners. We also return herewith the several exceptions made and filed before the Commissioners by Mr. W. McCulloh Brown, one of the Commissioners, during the progress of the work, together with such explanations, observations and notes as we have thought proper to make concerning said exceptions for the information of the court.

We also return herewith a number of photographs taken upon the ground illustrating the monuments erected by us to mark the line as run by us, showing the character of the work, method of construction and location of such monuments. Respectfully submitted,

JULIUS K. MONROE,
SAMUEL S. GANNETT,

Commissioners. And this cause coming on this day to be heard upon said motion and upon the said report of Julius K. Monroe and Samuel S. Gannett, and upon the separate report of W. McCulloh Brown, one of the said Commissioners, including his protest and exceptions in respect to said report of Commissioners Monroe and Gannett, and also upon the supplemental report filed by said Commissioners Monroe and Gannett; and the court being now fully advised in the premises:

Mr. Isaac Lobe Straus and Mr. Edgar Allen Poe for complainant.

Mr. Wm. G. Conley and Mr. G. E. Price for defendant.

It is thereupon adjudged, ordered and decreed that the

said exceptions filed on behalf of the State of Maryland, as aforesaid, to said report of Commissioners Julius K. Monroe and Samuel S. Gannett, be, and they are, hereby overruled, and that said report be, and the same is, hereby in all respects confirmed.

It is further adjudged, ordered and decreed that the line as delineated and set forth in said report of Commissioners Monroe and Gannett, and upon the map accompanying the same and referred to therein, which line has been marked with permanent monuments, as stated in said report, be, and the same is hereby, established, declared and decreed to be the true boundary line between the said States of Maryland and West Virginia, and said map is hereby directed to be filed as part of this decree.

And it appearing that the total expenses and compensation of said Commissioners and the expenditures attending upon the discharge of their duties amount to the sum of $17,154.60, it is further adjudged, ordered and decreed that the same be, and they are, hereby approved and allowed as part of the costs of this suit, to be borne equally between the parties to this cause. And it appearing from said report that the State of Maryland has already paid $5,038.40 of said amount, and that the State of West Virginia has already paid $12,116.11 of said amount, it is ordered that said amounts be credited to said States respectively in the settlement of the costs of this suit be tween them in accordance with the provisions of this decree and the former decrees entered herein.

It is further adjudged, ordered and decreed that the clerk of this court do transmit to the chief magistrates of the States of Maryland and West Virginia copies of this decree, duly authenticated under the seal of this court, omitting from said copy, however, the map filed with the report of said Commissioners Monroe and Gannett above mentioned.

May 27, 1912.
