GOOD ROADS MAN
WITH SOME IDEAS
Ir DVAC/Í/» M. SMITH
Mr. Earle of Michigan has landed on
the Oregon a soil for the pronouaced
purjiose of telling ue Low to have good
roads. He hails from a state that
seems to have one of the tieat mad laws
in the country. We lis’ene I to his ad
dress a couple of weeks ago arid were
deeply intereste»! in his narrative of the
fight for good roads winch he and * few
fellow patriots put up in M .chigan sever
al years ago, and of the law which they
have produced. Some of the leading
th ught brought out is tbat Mr Earle
does favor local road building first. He
approves of the construction of good
roads from the towns in various direct
ions under the supervision of a compe
tent state engineer, who draws plans
and gives advice. He tell« us tbat the
state of Michigan then allows each
county or precinct f'»«* for each mile of
gravel road or $100<i for each mile of
crushed rock water bound road, built
under the direction- of the state engi
neer. That is all well and good. Then
he telle us he is in favor of a crow state
highway arnl a great system of high
ways leading across the nation. Ac-
cording to bis plan he would have four
i f tne highways lead east and west and
eight span the country nortL and south.
A sort of national gridiron, built at

but let us not forget that the portion of
the public who stay- at home would
pay most of the bill. Why? Because
in this as in all other indirect taxes it
is intended that all the people shall as

some of this by collecting an expert
