State Engineer Lewis
Wants New Road Laws
State Engineer Lewis has issued a
statement in which he advocates a gen
eral overhauling of the road laws of
the state. He points out that the coun
ties of the state are expending from
$4,000,000 to fi,000,000 every year on
about 37.000 miles of road. This money
is expanded by 105 county judges and
commissioners, 35 county surveyors,
four roadmastcrs, 802 road supervisors
and the highway commission. There is
no organization or definite system in
the matter. ,
"We must have a definite clan
adopted by the legislature defining
the principal routes for. intercounty
and interstate traffic as state routes,"
he says in suggesting remedies. "When
ever a section or portion of a Btnte
route has been permanently improved
by the state it should thereafter be tak
en over and maintained as a state road
at the expense of the state, the county
to care for such a road prior to its be
coming a state road. The main county
roads .should be built and maintained
under the general direction of the coun
ty courts. These ronds will serve as
feeders to the main or trunk lines which
will carry the concentrated traffic. The
local or district roads should be large
ly under district control. Different
standards should be provided for each
class and sufficient overhead super
vision had to insure that these stand
ards be followed at least on intercounty
and interstate routes."
Meeting Called Monday at
New York to Investigate .
New York, Sept. 19. Housewives
from every corner of the United States
have been asked to meet in New York
next "Monday at tho session of the Na
tional Bread committece of the Nation
al Housewives League In an effort to
determine what steps shall be taken to
meet the increased cost of bread.
Gloom bungs over New York bakers
today for, despite the fact that they
have shown figures intended to prove
that an increase in the price of their
product is necessary to their existence
they face investigation by the federal
trade commission and ordinance -enactment
by the board of aldermen prcscrib
ing the sale of bread by weight rather
than by tho loaf.
"Tho situation looks very critical
both for the producer and the consum
er," snid Mrs. Julian Heath, president
of the Housewives League today. Mrs.
Heath has been investigating bread
prices for the past three weeks.
"From the figures presented and
from my investigation it would seem
mat perhaps an increase is uistified
but we want to be shown and we want
to bring about some remedy which will
lessen the burden on both the industry
and the consumer, " she declared.
Big bakers today presented figures
to show that either a higher price or
a smaller loaf ia inevitable.
Coal has gone up more than ten per
cent, the bakers state. Paper for wrap
ping bread has gone up. Master bakers
throughout the country nave been in
strumental in seeking an inquiry, ac
cording to Mrs. Heath, and hope that
it may suggest a solution for the prob
lem. J THE TATTLER

The name of E. E. Coovcrt will not be
put on the ballot for the next general
election as the republican candidate for
senator from the Fourteenth district,
which comprises the counties of Multno

was determined by an opinion handed
down this morning by the supreme
court, which opinion sustains tho demur

It is stated in the opinion, wbicn was
written by Justice Harris, that the di
rect primary nominating elections law
provides for the election of precinct
committeemen and then specifies the
powers which they can exercise, and
consequently no power can be exercised
by them unless it is granted by statute.
The statute must be taken as it is
written, says Justice HarriB, regard
less of its' results; and if there is need
for enlarging the powers of precinct
committeemen the right to enlarge the
authority of party representatives is ex
ercisable by the legislative and not by
the judicial department.
