A Few Facts
Aug. 9 Good Roads Day
Chicago, Aug. 7. Headed by Gover
nor Hiram Johnson, of California, the
governors of the Lmted States are tail
ing recognition o? national touring
week by setting aside Wednesday, Aug.
0, as Good Koada day.
Governor Johnson, seizing the occa
sion to bid the citizens of the Cali
fornia commonwealth sally forth in
their motor carB, nnd try out the new
$18,000,000 state highway system, issued
his Good Roads proclamation directly
upon bis return from a campaign a In
If there is one governor in the Vnitod
States who knows the joys and comforts
of motor touring when the roads are
good and the directions are accurate, it
is the governor of California. He has j
campaigned by automobile from one end
of California to the other "Siskiyou
to San Diego," as the California poli
tician and spellbinder usually puts it.
When one considers that California is
the longest state in the Union, some
idea of what Governor Johnson knows
about motor touring may be gained.
For a week emissaries of the B. F.
Goodrich company and national touring
week partisans trailed the governor to
catch up with him and induce him to
proclaim a Good Roads day. Governor
Johnson, however, proved too adept and
too speedy an automobile tourist to be
caught. He was reached at least on bis
return from his campaigning, and
promptly enlisted with the national
touring week movement.
Charge Is Smuggling
Whiskey from Canada
Portland, Ore., Aug. 7 While Charles
J. Bertelsen, former cafe proprietor,
and Charles T. Robinson, boatman, were

the supervision of secret service agents
delved into the banks of the Columbia
river near Flavel, hunting buried treas
ure. In this instance., the treasure consist
of 70 bottles of whiskey, which the aris
oners are suspected of trying to smuggle
in from British Columbia. When United
States officers halted the launch and
searched it, they found only half a doz
en flasks. Wet sand on a shovel in the
boat convinced detectives the remainder
had been buried. Bertelsen and Roliin
son have been charged with smuggling.
