Baltimore police say they've solved the Bolton Hill doorplate mystery.Someone had been stealing ornate doorplates and doorknobs from Victorian homes along Eutaw Place and Park Avenue. Last Friday, a man sold the pieces to an antique dealer for $40."He spoke well, and didn't appear to be an idiot by any means," said the dealer, Barr Harris of Harris Auction Galleries on Howard Street. "He brought in a carton of about 13 plates. I [thought] they would bring about $15 or $20 apiece."As a matter of routine, Mr. Harris photocopied the man's driver's license before purchasing the carton and its contents for $40.Three days later, Mr. Harris read in The Sun that a thief had been unscrewing the fancy brass door fixtures from homes in Bolton Hill.

In Bolton Hill, where a former president and famous author once lived among the expansive Victorian homes and broad oak trees, residents say they have a lingering quality-of-life problem: prostitutes. The neighborhood has organized citizen patrols and clamored for increased police presence. But on Wednesday night, their demands for increased assistance swelled at a public meeting that included several public officials, including Baltimore State's Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy.

Brown, chairman of the Board of Liquor License Commissioners, who has fallen out of favor with the senators because of recent board decisions.Those include the board's vote to give a $10,600 pay raise to the liquor board's deputy executive secretary and the panel's failure to act on the senators' recommendation that former state Sen. Nathan C. Irby Jr. be named to the $59,000-a-year job of executive secretary -- a post that has been vacant since December.
