MUST KNOW GOOD
ROADS FROM BAD
P. O. Young, professor of economics
and sclology at tne Univeristy of Ore
gon, is the author of a recent bulletin
entitled "Tendencies in Recent Amer
ican Koad Legislation. " The bulletin
is published as one of a new series by
the state university. The press-work
was very creditably done in the ofllee
i 1 1. . I.1. . 1 1 : i
Professor Young in his bulletin
shows that satisfactory progress in
the building and maintenance of
good roads requires first of all an ap
preciation of what good roads mean
for the welfare of the people and
the development of such an organi
zation of their resources as will furn
ish road improvement money and
brains. People must realize what
thoy have at stake in the difference
between good roads and bad roads
and then get such a system of laws as
will indue the largest measure of
effective effort in building good
The bulletin is made up of two
parts. In the first Professor Young
points out the conditions that led to
the most remarkable awakening of
the people of this country during
the last 15 years to the interest they
have at stake in their public roads.
A great national movement has
been organized. The support of the
general government In Its ofllee o
Public Koad Inquiries has been enlist
ed. The agency under lion. Martin
Dodge is rapidly extending its work
It is disseminating most helpful liter
ature on road construction and road
laws, it is testing free of charge road
material and has built object lesson
roads in nearly every state. The very
eminent national uood Koads associa
tion is supported bv about half i
dozen kindred national organizations.
ijvory state probably and many sec
tions and counties are organized to
promote the cause of good roads.
It is clear that the laws that emu
Date from a movement of such spirit
and earnestness have significance and
are valuable as models.
Having shown that the hauls of the
good roads movement lies in the far
reaching importance to a people of
their roads and pointed out the fact
that in the long run good roads are
not whit harder on the pocket book
than are bad roads. Professor Young
goes careruiiy into the laws that have
been the outcome of this movement-
lie gives tabular digests showing
me provisions in the law of the differ
enc states and territories bearing up
on the characteristic foatures as they
were in lHSi); secondly the changes
maue by im ; tnirdiy, those made be
tween that date and 1104. The tend
encies oieany revealed in this new
road legislation are summarized.
Blnoe the meeting of the first cost
of the permanent roads Is the crucial
part of the road problem, that system
of road laws is best which secures the
most equitable distribution of the
burden of road improvement. State
id with state supervision has been
adopted by nearly one-third of the
states as a solution of the problem
01 oosi. inrougn tuis state aid very
satisfactory results have been obtain
ed. New Jersey, Massachusetts,
nectlout and New York have
this policy thorough tests and are rap
idly increasing their state appropria
tions. Among the other new features
in road laws that the bulletin notes
are more serviceable classifications
of roads j provision for skilled super
intendence in the location, construc
tion and continuous repair of roads;
substitution of the money tax for the
labor tax and the rapid Increase of
taxation for road purposes ; work done
under contracts publicly let ; recourse
to bond issues j utilization of convict
labor in constructing roads and pre
paring road material; protection of
roads through favoring use of wide
tires; convertion of toll roads into
The phenomlnally rapid dovelodment
of the sentiment in favor of national
aid for road improvement is noted
and the "toning up" elfoot on state
systems that such national aid would

In answer to the inquiry as to how
work on the portage road is nroirress-
lng, contractor Nelson says all is going
smooiniy and satisfactorily, the cold
weatner causing practically no delay.
About 100 men are now at work, says

states C. A. Hamilton in a lnttnr
of inquiry to W. J. Maker & Co.

ilton wants to know if there is an
opportunity to get work in a Hood
Kiver orchard, andwhether the stories
he reads about this wonderful country
are all true. Continuing he says :
"I find in our market, and when I
say our market I mean our Washing

"Eastern products go at three for

but just as juicy, but have a hardm
climate I presume to buck against. "

Make Fine Maps f (he City.
Murray Kay was recently employed
to draft a map of the city of Hood
Kiver for the Light and Water Co.,
for the purpoco of locating the pipe
and wire system of tho company. The
map is a splendid piece of workman
ship, and excells anything of its. kind
ever executed in the citv before. The
map indicates the diiiereut additions
of Hood Kiver, each of v. hich is
shown in different color. The width
of all streets and lots is accurately in
dicated by ligurcs.
Ned Henderson, tho real estato
and insurance, agent, has nmdo a copy
of the a map for his ollico. It is also
in colors, and is a vory creditable
piece of work for an amateur. While
it is Mr. Henderson 's first attempt of
tho kind, ho may well ho proud of it.
Tho map is a valuable addition to his
real citato ofllce.
