A NATIONAL COMMISSION.
The agitation for good roads has re
united in a bill being introduced in the
house of representatives looking to the
"betterment of our road system'. The
.bill, which hag been referred to a com
mittee, provides for the creation of a
special commission on highways. Sev
eral different departments are recognized
in its make-up, the commission to con
sist of one senator, two representatives,
the chief of engineers of the army, the
director of the geological survey, and the
chief of road inquiry of the department
of agriculture. It is provided that the
life of the commission shall be cotermin
ous with that of the present congress
and that it shall make reports by bill or
otherwise of the progress that is made.
The specific objects of the commission
are to inquire generally "how the gov
ernment may promote the improve
ment of highways by the scientific loca
tion of roads on the public domain, the
employment of the geological survey in
the discovery of road materials, the
free testing of these materials, the con
struction of model roads and instruction
in road-making at agricultural colleges
experiment Stations, the Military Acad
emy, and, when practicable, at all in
stitutions having a military instructor."
An important part of the commission's
work will be to arouse interest in the
subject among the different states, and
by communicating to the proper au
thorities the technical knowledge ob
tained by the commission to enable the
states to do better work in the construc-
tion of roads. Already tangible results
have been obtained by government in
vestigation regarding road building, and
it is believed the passage of the bill
creating this commission will be a
move towards more intelligent efforts in
securing for different sections of the
country better systems of roads, the
lack of which is sorely felt by farming
communities everywhere. The subject
of road building has grown to be a
science, such as it was in the days of the
Soman Empire, when the world saw
the most complete system of highways
in its history, and the investigation of
the subject by a competent commission
seems to be the best way of obtaining
The Victoria Club of Chicago, through
Senator Cullom, has presented a resolu
tion to congress declaring that a con
gratulatory communication to the Trans
vaal republic npon the repulsion of the
Jameson invasion would be nnadvisa
ble and an indignity to Great Britain a
power with which we are at peace. The
"Victoria Club can hardly expect con
gress to coincide with its viewe, since if
the' Jameson invasion was purely a pri
vate undertaking and one entirely dis
claimed by the English government,
a congratulatory dispatch could be ot no
possible concern to Great Britain. If
Dr. Jameson's attempt was sanctioned
by the home authorities," and Great
Britain did participate in the move
ment, then she has forfeited all claims
to have her sensitive feelings respected.
Sach communications as that of the
"Victoria Club an American organiza
tion of English name and affections
are impudent, and the time of a busy
senate should not be taken up in listen
ing to them.
Congress is not wholly bereft of good
judgment and patriotism. At the close
of a recent prayer, in which he prayed
fervently for the success of the Cuban in
surgents, the house chaplain was greet
ed with a burst ot applause from appre
ciative members. Even these signs are
reassuring. - -
