AS FUTURE LEADER
Secretary Daniels Dwells on
Need of Men of High Ideals
; in Public Service.
EDUCATION INVOLVES DUTY
Wilson, Jefferson and Otbers Are
Praised, and Jackson, Bryan and
Tom Johnson Come In- for
' Share of Laudation.
CLEVELAND. April 18. Secretary of
the Navy Daniels addressed the stu
dents -of Western Reserve University
today on the future of the scholar in
politics, and at a "dollar dinner" of
the Cuyahaga County Jefferson Club
tonight eulogized not only Thomas Jef
ferson, but President "Wilson. Secretary
Bryan and Tom Johnson, Cleveland's
Speaking to the students, Secretary
Daniels made an appeal for the enlist
ment of well-trained, scholarly men in
the cause of clean politics and better
government. The. leader of the future,
Mr. Daniels said, would be the scholar
the man who stood fearless of the
sneer of "the boss."
Education la Public Trust. '
Mr. Daniels took a the keynote of
his remarks "the Scholar in Politics,"
and as an illustration of the need of
men with high ideals in public life he
cited the achievements of Woodrow
Wilson, Thomas Jefferson and other
men who won distinction .because, he
said, they yielded the necessary qual
ifications. "One reason why we have been at
a loss for educated public leadership,"
he said, "is the educated men and
women of our country have not fully
realized that their study should have
been for the benefit of the people and
not merely for the gratification of their
own minds, or for the advancement
merely of individual ends. A good edu
cation is a public trust."
Addressing the diners at the Jeffer
son Club affair tonight, Mr. Daniels
said the tariff, currency and tax laws
were in thorough accord with the prin
ciples of "our great mentors. Jefferson
and Jackson." These statutes already
are enacted, and the proposed anti
trust laws, he added, showed that the
"Democratic party in the past year has
done more in the way of constructive
legislation- than the Republican party
has in the past decades."
Ton Johnson Eulojrlzed.
Mr. Daniels paid a glowing tribute
to the memory of Mr. Johnson. "Hu
man liberty was threatened from a dif
ferent direction when Tom Johnson
was raised up to champion the weal -of
the masses. He incarnated the spirit of
Jefferson. Jefferson was not more
forgetful of himself in his thought of
his countrymen than Johnson and in
the latter's use of his wealth for the
community," said the speaker.
Discussing the effect of the new
tariff law, the speaker said that "con
trary to the predictions of the apostles
of privilege, we are not flooded with
'pauper' goods from abroad. Our im
ports have been increased; our exports
have grown greater. What is true of
the. tariff applies with equal force to
the currency. - The bill which the last
Congress enacted embodies the best
thought of the Nation on the subject.
It rears no overshadowing central
structure to regulate the fate of the
"In the accomplishment of these
Democratic and truly American pieces
of legislation, I would not withhold the
credit deserved by those members of
Congress who differ with us politically,
yet who, in the liberality of their views,
have rendered us their party support.
It is seldom that two such vital issues
are determined with so little party
' spirit, and I regard it as most auspi
cious that the time has arrived when
men of high station disregard the ele
ment of the party and lend their sup
port for measures for which their op
ponents are responsible."

BRICK ROADS FAVORED
SAV1XG IX NEW YORK WOULD BE
GREAT, SAYS GOVERNOR.
Glynn Advocates Use of Convict Labor
to Manufacture Bricks and
Reduce Building Cost.
NEW YORK. April 18. (Special.)
No more significant good roads mes
sage ever has been delivered by a state
executive than that by Governor Glynn
at Albany a few days ago.
He said that New York must either
change its road policy or prepare to
levy a perpetual yearly road tax of $2
on every man, woman and child in the
state. Instead of roads that wear out
in ten years and cost $1000 a year per
mile to maintain, he said roads must
be built that will last from 20 to 30
years and cost only $10 to $50 a mile
for repairs. Even if New York were
compelled to pay $25,000 a mile for
brick roads, he said it would be econ
omy to build such roads instead of
macadam roads in all places where the
state highways are subjected to heavy
Under the 50-year bond issues the
12,000-mile state road system will wear
out 40 years before it is paid for un
less durable construction is adopted.
Although the first cost of concrete
roads is from $2000 to $3000 more per
mile than the best macadam and
brick roads-cost from $10,000 to $12,000
more the saving in yearly main
tenance of the brick road would
amount to $10,000 a mile.
The Governor proposes to cut the
cost of building such roads to a figure
little higher than that of macadam
roads by employing convicts in the
manufacture of vitrified brick In plants
to be erected by the state.
