national platforms. We have not
been elected for that purpose. The
function of revising national plat
forms belongs with conventions
chosen for national purposes. Our
function so far as national questions
are concerned, begins and ends with
an unmistakable identification of the
democratic party of Ohio with the
democrats of the republic
"That can be done In good faith
only by acknowledgelng the authority
of the latest national exposition of
party doctrine on national questions.
"In my Judgment this convention
ought to recognise the Kansas City
platform. It ought also to pay the
tribut of Its respect to the great dem
ocrat who has In two national cam
paigns brilllanty led us against the
republican party and Its nllled hosts
of non-partisan monopolists."
The plftform contains the follow
"We, the democrats of Ohio, here

party of the nation, and on national
Issues reaffirm and indorse the prin

One of the most Instructive papers of

In September was by Lewis M. Ilaupt.

"Every foi ..id tnrn of a wheel," he
said, "Is a revolution and typifies prog
ress. It Is Immaterial whether It be a
wagon wheel or a car wheel, a fly
wheel or a wnter wheel, a turbine or a
propeller, a ptiion or a pulley, a bicycle
or a mobile, it Is always fascinating
to see the wheels go round.
"But behind the wheel to make It re

crank there must 1h? n motor; behind
the motor nil artisan; behind the arti

Is the great Creator of mind .ami mat
ter, the Incomprehensible God, the
mainspring of all activities and possi
bilities. "Intuitively the mind Is carried back
In the spirit of the days of old, when
the prophet Ezeklel stood on the banks
of the river Chebar, In the land of the
Chaldeans, and, looking into the opened
heavens, beheld the four living crea
tures which hod the likeness of a man
going upon wheels.
" "The appearance of the wheels and
their work was like unto the color of
beryl, and they four had one likeness,
and their appearance and their work
was, ns it were, a wheel in the middle
of a wheel. The spirit of the liv
ing creature was in the wheels. And
whithersoever the spirit was to go they
went, thither wns their spirit to go.'
"From thnt day to this the earth has
trundled around her course In yearly
laps, bearing to the children of the
present csutury the fruition of this
prophecy of the spirit and the wheels, j
Well may It be said today that every
thing goes upon wheels, but there are
wheels and wheels. Some turn more
easily than others nnd do more work
at less cost, and thus we are brought
directly into contact with the surface
or roadway which the wheel harnesses

mechnnlcs and physics.
"In addition to tho wheel nnd Its
way there are obstacles of various
which Impede its progress.

There may be a mountain in the pnth
or cataract In the stream, a chasm in
the plnln, or It may be that rain has
converted an earthen road into a
slough, that a cyclone has drifted sand
across a railway or a blizzard has fill
ed a cut with snow.
"Such are a few of the contingencies
which obstruct the highways of com
nierce and which It is the work of the
engineer and roacmaker to remove
"What better and more condensed
Instructions can be fonnd for this than
those which came from the prophet
Isaiah as the voice of him tbat crletb
from the wilderness of Asia, 'Prepare
ye the way; make straight in the des
ert n highway for our God.'
"Today Russia is literally carrying
out these specifications in extending
her nrea of steel from the Baltic to the
Japan sea that civilization may ad
vance by the peaceful revolutions of
the wheel nnd not by tbe arbitrament
of the sword. Romnn roads sub
jugated and controlled tbo empire.
Truly the wheel Is mightier than the
sword as a civilizing agent"
Following this preamble Mr. Ilaupt
showed the relation of the rate of
transportation to the profit to tbe pro
ducer and the influence severally of
the highway, the railwny and the ar
tificial and national waterways In lim
iting or extending the market range.
In conclusion he said:
"Very little of the 800,000,000 of tons
of freight carried annually on the rail
roads of tbe United States has Its
origin on the line of tbe road, but
mnst first be moved from farm, mine
or forest over earth roads at an average
cost of 25 cents per ton mile. If the
average distance be but four miles
the expense of transportation before
delivery to the railroad would be $800,
000,000, while tho charge for distri
bution may swell this to over $1,000,
(00,000 annually, most of which goea
to cover wear and tear.
"The cost of transportation on our
common roads may be greatly dimin
ished by reducing the resistances and
improving the grades, alignment, sur
face and drainage. If reduced to even
one-half the effect would be to double
tbe area of the territory tributary to
tbe railroads and so Increase their ton
nage as well as tbo margin available
"As It costs much less to Improve
roads than to open branch railroads
as feeders, It would bo good policy on
the part of railroads to unite with
counties, townships nnd boroughs In
developing systems of Improved trunk
roads with laterals as feedcru to their
own systems. Numerous .precedents
for such n policy exist In foreign coun
tries, where the results have proved
Its wisdom nnd economy."
