LLNCOLN AND TODAY
The Glacier is glad that it can afford
its readers today an interview from E.
L. Smith, who was present for the
nomination of Abraham Lincoln by the
National Republican convention in
May, 1860. The spirit of Lincoln, pre
server of the Union, who sprang from
the great mass of the American people,
is happy, we know, today aa be sees
the strong bonds of American citizen
ship lightening from Maine to Califor
nia and from Michigan to Louisiana.
Lincoln, the great helmsman.steered the
mighty Ship of State clear of a wreck,
although a terrible internecine warfare
was necessary. The wounds from
Mars' lancet have all been healed, a
reunited people stood shoulder to shoul
der two decades ago, and again, when
it seems that the contagion of a world
war must inevitably be visited on the
land of Columbia, Americans are speak
ing as one. We have been accused of
a trend toward easy going indifference,
of having become worshippers at no
shrine but Mammon's. But the hidden
fire of patriotism has been kindled in
hearts the land over, and today with
millions of American flags flung to the
winds, the chinooks of Oregon, the soft
breathing Spring zephyrs of the South
landthe more wintry blsst of the Inter
Mountain districts and the salt laden
breezes coming in off the Pacific,
American citizenship, her men and her
women, with prayers that his decisions
may be wise, await in calm readiness
the action of President Wilson.
In Hood River, as in numerous other
American communities, a portion of
our citizenship, our best citizenship, is
made up of natives or sons and daugh
ters of natives of the Fatherland. We
see them answer the call of duty from
their adopted land and just as with us
who are imbued with an added inborn
love of the land that gave us birth
they, too, have accepted the American
flag, and if necessary, these Germans
so many of whom have come among us,
tell us that they will give up their
lives, if need be, in maintaining from
the blot of dishonor the Stars and
Stripes. It is but natural that those of
the Fatherland should have a feeling of
sympathy for their old home, and the ex
pressions of American loyalty that we
hear coming personally from the lips of
our local citizens of German ancestry
and as voiced by the German-American
press of this country, arouses our deep
est respect and admirtion. While the
posmbpiitics of diverting an actual war
with Germany are diminishing, a con
templation of what it may mean keeps
alive the hope that some means may
arise whereby American honor may be
maintained and a conflict avoided.
If fight we must, American spirit is
ready.
If the state of Washington had not
abolished the law providing capital
punishment, E. W. Olsen, chairman of
the Industrial Insurance Commission of
that state, would probably not have
been assassinated last week by John
Vandell, a logger maddened because of
a failure-to collect a claim for injuries.
The existing law can save the life of
the murderer but can not bring back
one of Washington's foremost citizens.
Vandell committed the cold-blooded
deed with a revolver which he had pur
chased a few moments before the
shooting from a hardware store.
Washington.s legislature is now in ses
sion. The tragedy should point at
least the way to one bill needed in
that state, namely legislation that will
prohibit the sale of revolvers.
If the groundhog, following time
honored custom, emerges from his win
ter burrow at the moment of high
noon, to ascertain if the sun is shining,
the Mid-Columbia is due a respite from
the grasp of Boreas soon, for the heav
ens were thickly clouded last Friday at
the stroke of 12, and a heavy rain was
falling. The ground hog could not
have seen his shadow. At intervals
during the morning, however, the sun
gleamed fitfully through the mists.
Friday morning's rain followed a
three inch snow the previous night, and
the prophetic marmot, engaged in his
annual prognostications, necessarily
had to tunnel up through a blanket of
the beautiful.
Senator Wilbur, it must be remem
bered, is captain of our artillery eom
panv, and has an eye to business. His
bill, providing for a moratorium on sol
dier's debts, will have the effect of
making all of us recruit.
A freindless, age unknown, tattered
old man passed away in Oregon yester
day. It was John Barleycorn. More
of jov than of weeping follows the
death.
Us a wise legislator who knows when
to withdarw a bill and Senator Wilbur
has wisdom. Oregonian.
Save the Oregon Experimental Sta
tion appropriations.
Our boys. Company 12, C. A. C, 0.

SMITH CONTINUES
ROAD DISCUSSION
(By Roy D. Smith.)
Our article on this subject two
weeks aco save a brief history of
road building in the past, reaching
far back In the history ot nations and
peoples who have been gathered to
their fathers. Nothing but a memory
U left of many of those countries
which were builders of roads. Thus
we find that Home was the master
builder of roads among all the na
tions of antiquity. She borrowed the
art from a conquered nation tuo
Carthagenians. From them, too, she
learned the art of ship building. With
these arts Bhe was able to rule and
dictate the politics ot the known
world for over a thousand years.
When Rome reached the highest
place in the niche of fame under the
reign of Augustus Caesar she had a
magnificent system of national mm
tary highways extending to every
part of her vast empire.
It is stated by historians that Rome
had as much aa 50,000 miles or mag
nificent roadway reaching to the
remotest parts of her great empire.
'Tis said that no less than 29 of
these great military roads radiated
from the imperial city itself.
Roman construction was extremely
massive. The Appian Way is said
to have been in good repair after 800
years of neglect.
Now let us move down the corri
dors of time a little. The modern
Impetus was given road-building just
about the close of our great Civil
War. The rock crusher was invent
ed by EU Whitney Blake of New Ha
ven, Conn.
The first steam roller used in the
United States was Imported from
England in 1868 and was used tn the
arsenal grounds of Philadelphia.
Auto Brings New Problem.
Thus we see the real beginning of
road building in the united States.
The macadam waterbound rock an
swered all purposes, but with the
coming of the automobile there was
presented an entirely new problem
n road construction. The world
awoke to the fact that the roads
which had stood for a century or
more soon went to pieces under this
new traffic condition. The solution
of this problem la not entirely set
tled as yet. Warrenlte is beyond the
shadow of a doubt the best and most
durable road material under these
new conditions, and they guarantee it
for only about 10 years. So we can
plainly see that the pilgrimage t.v
wards the Mecca of the perfect road
has not ended yet.
Let us reason together on this
vital question, remembering that we
are all vitally interested. The que
tion is not to be solved by the master
stroke of some genius, but it is my
humble judgment that it will be ac
complished by hard reasoning mixed
with good common sense and patient
endeavor on the part of those in
authority bb well as the people them-
solveft. The old saying that Rome
was not built in a day is quite true,
And so is this question one which is
economic and to be solved in a col
lective and community way. It can
not be the work of one day. -Laying
Out the Roads
In considering this subject it Is
well to not lose sight of some well-
known principles which will of neces
sity have to be considered. One of
the very first is cost. Next is the
geography and topography of our
county, also the lines of traffic. The
maxim should be followed after this
rise, "The greatest good to the great
est number." Now in order to fol
low this rule it may become neces
sary for some persons to sacrifice
what may appear to them as a per
sonal benefit. For example, the
County Court may perhaps build a
piece of hardsurface road, but we
cannot all expect to have it built In
front of our individual property nor
on the road which we may travel to
town. This matter must, of course,
have to be settled by our Court and
they will be forced to build it in a
place to accomodate the largest
amount of traffic and where best suit
ed to that) kind of construction.
We of the West Side are perfectly
willing to let the East Side be the
pioneer in this manner of construc
tion as we did in the matter of the
first macadam that was built in the
county. So far so good, and we hope
that the East Side will join hands
with us and show the same willing
spirit and forget self interest.
Old System Is Discarded.
About seven years ago we emerged
from the antiquated system of work
ing the county roads with a poll tax,
each person going out at a stated
time, doing a little work and lots of
visiting with the net result that our
roads seemed to begin at no particu
lar place and run in any old direc
tion, always following the line of
least resistanace. But just about thib
time a new system was inaugurated
all over the county. Each district
was alloted a certain amount of mon
ey and men were hired by the day to
perform road work the same as work
ing for any private individual. I will
say that a marked improvement was
noticeable throughout the county and
I feel that everyone will admit that in
the past eight years our county roads
have shown a marked improvement.
This was a step in the right direc
tion. I am not asserting that we are
out of the fog, but we are a little
ahead of where we were then.
(Continued next week.)
Tweedy Nay Get Pension
Judge A. C. Buck has received a
communication fiom Representative
in .J. Mnnott, who announces that the
Ixwer House of Congress has passed a

here with the family of his son.
Indian George Again
Lest it spoil everything by shouting
too early that "Spring has came," the
'Donald Record cautiously remarks:
"Old Indian Georsre is the subiect
of much criticism just at present on
account ot his predictions of a hard
winter ; but it must be borne in mind
that it is not too late yet for some real
nasty weather. It will be remembered
that eprinsr came at least six times last
year before it decided to remain with
us."

MAYOR ASKS FOR
DISPLAY OF FLAGS
Following the example set by the
members of Twelfth Co., C. A. C,
who have flung to the breezes a huge
American flag over the Armory build
ing, Stars and Stripes big and little,
were unfurled here today with a great
er spirit of partiotism than has ever
been displayed on the Fourth of July.
The display of flags followed a procla
mation issued by Mayor Dumble.
The Mayor's proclamation follows:
"To the Citizens of Hood Rive:
"At this critical juncture in the his
tory of our great Union, it behooves
the municipality of Hood River, and
its residents as individual American
citizens to make public expression of a
firm stand in support of the policies of
our President, and to me, it seems that
this feeling of patriotism may well be
evidenced by a display of the Stars and
Stripes, the beloved emblem of free
dom and liberty.
. "Therefore, I proclaim that the
Amercan flag be displayed from the
buildings of all loyal fraternal institu
tions, puolic buildings and from as
many private homes as possible.
"But with the issuance of this pro
clamation I would warn our citizens
against any hysteria, against any un
guarded talk that might tend to stir
racial animosities. Citizens of America
are fancing one of the gravest situa
tions ever confronting them, and their
expressions should be guided by calm
deliberation. II. L. Dumble,
Mayor of Hood River. '
COURT CONSIDERS
INSPECTION FUND
The time of the Hood River county
court was taken up yesterday with
a discussion of an appropriation for
use of the county fruit inspector the
coming season. LeRoy Childs, acting
superintendent of the local branch of
the Oregon Experiment Station, de
clared that funds expended on an in
spector's work formed good insurance.
While a sentiment in favor of increas
ing the budget of $600 for the inspec
tion work prevails, most of the numer
ous orchardists present seemed to think
that the sum already set aside would
be sufficient.
While two applicants, G. H. Robbins
and Elmer Lafferty, presented the
court with formal petitions, numerous
others have expressed an aspiration for
the job at $600 per year.
Prof. L. F. Henderson, who recently
tendered his resignation as fruit in
spector, has proposed to the court to
retain the office, provided the sum of
$2,000 were made available for the
work of inspection. In case this offer
was not accepable to the court, Prof.
Henderson stated that he would work
for 10 months at $100 per month, if the
county would pay his expenses. An
appointment will be made today.
William Kennedy is Dead
The funeral of the late William Ken
nedy, a pioneer orchardist of the East
Side community, bavinsr formerly own
ed what is now known as the Mineral
Springs tract of the Davidson Fruit
Co.. will be held today at the ETave-
side at Pine Grove cemetery. Mr. Ken
nedy passed away luesday at hts home
in Vancouver, Wash., where he has re
sided for the past several years. Mr.
Kennedy was 58 years of age.
The funeral will be conducted by C

HIGH SCHOOL NOTES
By Betty Epping
The basketball trip to White Salmon
last Friday was hardly a success as
the score was turned against us 16 to
15. The game was a non-league affair
so we are hoping to "get their nanny"
on their return here on February 16.
The players making the trip were
Floyd Wright, Selman Gassaway, Lee
Spaulding, Robert Henderson, Leon
Bentley Charles Johnson, Roy Dark,
Karl Vondei Ahe and Coach Cohoon.
Lowell Nickelsen was not able to play
but gave the team his moral support
by accompanying them It might have
been different, White Salmon, if Nick
had played.
Hood River plays a non-league game
with Stevenson on Saturday, February
10. Game starts at eight o'clock Bharp,
admission 25 cents.
The local quintet will play The Dalles
team a league game next Friday, Feb
ruary 9, at that city. We hope to bring
home the banner of victory on this
trip, as Goldendale defeated them 59 to
9 and us only 30 to 9.
Last Thursday the senior girls de
feated the sophomore girls 10 to 8. On
the same day the senior boys beat the
soph boys 30 to 11. Today at 3:30 the
freshmen and juniors will clash. The
dope sheet says that the Junior boys
and the freshman girls will be victori
ous. The frosh girls will probablv
capture the championship of the school.
A week ago last Thursday the Soph
Frosh girls' score was 5-3 in favor of
the frosh instead of 55-3, which was a
misprint.
Tonight the Literary society is in
charge of Miss Sheridan, a play,
"Blundering Billie," being the chief
attratcion. The rest of the program
follows: vocal solo, Lillian Brock;
piano solo, Viva Andre ; Vocal solo,
Toivo Annala. Admission will , be 10
cents. The proceeds will be used to
furnish the dining room.
The silver cup for the highest honors
in debating during the 1916 school year
was awarded to Floyd Mason, '19;
Mattie Jensen, '17 ; and Pearl Florer,
'17. We now have a collection of five
silver cups. The cup was given by the
students body.
Jessie Lewis, '19, Helen Brosi, '19.
ad Clara Hass, ,20, have received the
American Penman certificate of pro
ficiency in hand writing. Letters writ
ten by the Palmer company say that
their work was highly commented on
by the judges, who said that the work
was an exception.
Certificates for accuracy in typewrit
ing were awarded to Karl Vonder Ahe,
Sydney Carnine, and Alfred Thomsen,
all of the senior class.
Tuesday the fourth grade from Vi
ento visited us and were properly
thrilled over the event. They were
served a warm lunch by the domestic
science class.

The Springlike weather of Sunday
aroused the fraternity of anglers of
Hood River. W. B. Small spent Sun
day morning on Hood River. On Sun
day afternoon J. H. Fredricy visited
his old familiar haunts.
Paying the death penalty for the
trouble they caused, three muskrats
temporarily closed down two of Hood
River's largest industrial plants last
week and O.-W. R . N. trains, all of
which usuallv stop here for water, were
forced to fill their tanks at Wyeth and
The Dalles On Tuesday of last week
the ditch of the water power system
constructed a number of years ago by
Joseph A. Wilson but now owned by
the Apple Growers Association broke
and allowed the reservoir on the
Heights where the family of amphibi
ous rodents made their home to run
dry. The penetrating cold weather
apparently drove the animals into the
outlet pipe and when the water was
again turned on the rats were impris
oned. From the reservoir to the level of
the business and factory Boction of the
city is a drop of more than 200 feet and
the bodies of the muskrats had been
driven through two inch pipes. The
bones of the animals had been crushed.
At the blacksmith and wagon factory
of W. G. Snow one of the plants
stopped when the water power was
shut otf a part of the crushed body of
a muskrat being driven a distance of a
half foot into a half inch pipe.
The Hood River Apple Vinegar Co.,
where five big hydraulic presses daily
squeeze the juice from Hood River ap
ples, was the other place of business
closed by one of the unfortunate ro
dents. D. C. Kautz, superintendent of the
water system, has been on the watch
for further trouble from imprisoned
muskrats.
L. J. Butterfield, of the composing
rooms of the Hood River Glacier, has
a big torn cat that he says he will
match against all comers. The cat has
licked all other felines of the portion
of the city in which his owner resides.
Mr. Butterfield reports a battle royal
one night last week in iB basement,
when a stray, gray cat, larger than the
black, invaded the latter's domain.
"I was on the point of going down
and taking a hand myself' says Mr.
Butterfied, "for the noise of the fray
had awakened the babies. But the
noise ceased, and I had forgotten the
night battle until the next morning,
when I found a dead gray torn cat as I
was gathering up an armful of wood.
Mrs. J. R. Nickelsen, of Alderbrook
farm, iust west of this city on the Co
lumbia River Highway, when she
belled her pet cat to prevent him from
catching China pheasants, thought she
had solved a problem that might be as
useful to the Portland City Council,
the members of which have recently
been involved in a discussion of the
cat-bird question. -
"But my method has its drawbacks,"
says Mrs. Nickelsen. "While I be
lieve it would suffice as a warning to
the birds, the tinkling of the bell on
my cat worried a neighboring family
almost into distraction,
i "1 was reporting my method of pre
venting my cat from slaughtering Chi
nese pheasants to a meeting of neigh
boring women. 'Well, I know now
what that was in our attic for the past
several nights,' said Mrs. E. E.
Schmocker, one of our near neighbors.
'I had been leaving an outside win
dow to the attic open, in order that our
cat might reach the place from a back
porch roof and clean up the mice there.
For the past several nights, we have
been awakened numerous times by a
mysterious tinkling of bells. Your cat
was our ghost."
H. I. Byrd killled an enormous cou
gar ncar one of the Oregon Lumber
Company's logging camps last week.
