WHERE WILL THE ROAD MONEY GO?
. The proposed $10,000,000 road bond program is brief
ly as lollows: .
The money raised from sale of bonds is to be aug
mented by tne government until it is estimated that a total
sum of $16,000,000 will be available for-road construction,
The ten million bond issue is to be taken care of by vir
tually doubling ,the automobile tax, and by a tax of one
cent a gallon on gasoline and half a cent a gallon on dis
Of this $16,000,000 road fund $7,500,000 is roughly
-estimated to be necessary to complete the pavement of
the Columbia river highway and the Paciiic highway
from Portland down both sides of the river as far as
Junction City, and from that point on down to the Cal
ifornia line. The remaining $8,500,000 is to be expended
upon lateral roads or secondary highways to be selected
by the state highway commission.
This is one point where every member of the legis
lature should demand a show-down. They ought to know
where this money is to be expended in road-building, be
fore they vote to exhaust , the entire bonding resources
of the state to provide a road-building fund. The neces
sity for knowing about this is emphasized by the demand
of Portland boosters that the Mount Hood loop be placed
on the program as one of the roads to be constructed and
Now the Capital Journal has often expressed confi
dence in the personnel of j:he state highway commission.
It has not changed that view, but these men may find
Portland influence for the big city is now in complete
political control of the state too strong to resist. Take
the $6,000,000 bond issue of two years ago; the lion's share
has gone to the Columbia river highway which is a Port
land tourist road and millions more of the next issue will
go the same way. Marion county, for instance will re
ceive about $120,000 of state money out of this $6,000,000
fund when the Salem-Aurora road is paved this year, the
the remainder of contract price coming from the govern
ment funds. Of course, Marlon county voted against the
road bond issue, but it is the second largest county in the
state with the second largest number of automobiles in
the state, and these automobiles are taking care of the
interest and are expected to repay the principal some
time. Naturally Marion county should have received more
than $120,000 out of $6,000,000, but the fact is only men
tioned to show the danger of allowing Portland to dictate
the expenditure of the bond money on purely tourist
roads. Other counties fared even worse than Marion.
The commission may try to play fair but the least it can
do is to throw out some big sops to the Portland crowd,
even if it does not grant all that is asked for the city's
scenic system of highways.
Worst of all there is no assurance that the present
highway commission will serve until the entire $16,000,
000 is expended. As a matter of fact one member is serv
ing very strongly against his personal inclination. Mem
bers may resign, or die or fan" to be re-appointed by the
governor, so that the present personnel of the commission
can be regarded as anything but a permanent safeguard
guaranteeing the proper expenditure of the millions en
trusted to the commission for the building of good- roads
where there is the greatest need for them.
The roads that Oregon wants are those which will as
sist in the business of the state and the development of
the country. Many of these roads are needed in both
eastern and western Oregon. We can get along without
the tourist roads like the Mount Hood loop, and we need
the money too badly elsewhere to spend large amounts
of the money realized from bond sales upon it.
If we are to go into this great road-building expendi
ture the members of the legislature owe it to their con
stituents to find out before they provide the money where
it is to be spent. A general road system should be map
ped out and adopted and it should be enacted into law so
that the commission will be bound by it. These roads
should be located where they will benefit the people who
live in the state instead of those who drive into or through
it on pleasure tours.
The disquieting rumor is prevalent again that the
boats may be taken off the river, because the peo
pie operating them are short of capital This should be
prevented if possible, and it ought to be possible if a guar
antee of business will keep the line open. Salem and the
other towns along the river need the boats and need them

married as long as Germany paid the bills; but when
it comes to supporting a wife and children himself, that's
a different matter.
There is a bill before the senate to appropriate $40,-
000 for additional land around the state prison. Whether
it is proposed to lay out golf links or poto grounds for the
use of the convicts the bill does not explain.
If it is possible to talk anything to death the paving
trust might just as well be measured for its casket.

YOU HAVE ALL HEARD SOMETHING ABOUT
By Walt Mason
Old Booze is dead, so toll the knell for this old maudlin
knave; the mourners raise a joyful yell as they stand by
the grave. Old Booze hung on with teeth and nails, he
tried to dodge the tomb; he hoped to sell his gins, and ales
nutil the crack of doom. He hoped to do his ancient task
till Father Time is gone? but we've outgrown the jug and
flask, outgrown the demijohn. Old Booze is dead, at rest
he lies, cashed in beyond recall; he never helped a man to
rise, but made a million fall. Old Booze will sleep beneath
the loam until the bright sun pales; he never built a toil
er's home, but he filled many jails. Old Booze has cross
ed the great divide to see what's doing there; and we'll
have less of suicide, and less of black despair. And we'll
see less of woman's tears, of children needing bread, of
wages gone for foaming beers, since Old Man Booze is
dead. He'll dish no more the poison drink to knock the
good man down" ; his funeral would make you think a circus
is in town. The sextons chortle as they work and dig the
clammy clay, and in the shadow of the kirk the pastor
yells "Hooray-" The undertaker is on hand, with festive
lilts and runes, and by the fence the village band is playing
ragtime tunes. - .
