GOOD ROADS IM GEORGIA.
Talk of a Seven Hundred Mile Road
Between Atlanta arid Washington.
The (iood lioads club of Georgia has
started a movement fur the construc
tion of an Improved highway between
Atlanta and Washington, about 700
miles. The plan ts that each of the
counties In the different states should
agree to maintain the highway after ,lt
has been completed. The rapid spread
of Interest In automobiles has aroused
the Georgia men to the urgent need o'
better roads In the south, and they be
lleve,that .an improved highway from
At hint n to the national capital would
give a great impetus to the good roads
movement all over the south. .
It has been suggested by the project
ors of tf pnyiosed highway that the
authorities . of each county agree to
round up, roll and ditch one of the ex
isting connecting roads from border to
border and improve It with a macadam
surface as soon as possible. It Is be
lieved that this plnh can be carried out
so that motorists will be able to rnvcl
over a continuous stretch of fairly
good roads by the middle of the com
ing summer. It Is suggested that the
dirt roads which must be included In
the highway be kept In condition by
using split log drags similar to the one
devised by D. Ward King of Missouri.
The farmers of Georgia are just as en
thusiastic over the plan as the auto
moblllsts of the stnte.
Irrigation and Good Roads.
J, C. Osgood, honorary vice president
for Colorado of the seventeenth na
tional Irrigation congress, which will
meet at Spokaiv. Wash.. Aut. 9, re
cently wrote rt i ' ; r to i ho secretary
of the board cf control in which,
among other things, he said:
"I think a good roads convention
would add greatly to the interest of
the coming congress, but I go further
than wanting merely good roads. I
want the'' very best roads, and I be
lieve that the people of the irrigation
states "have a claim on the government
for large expenditures In the building
of the principal roads through the
mountainous and sparsely settled sec
tions of the country equal In charac
ter to the best roads of France, Eng
land and Germany." '
