Refused Transcript. The wireless annnun cement that Acting-Governor
Mott-Smith has refused Consul General Miki Suite
a transcript in the Lovell trial where the officer was tried on a
charge of murdering a Japanese seems a bit peculiar on tbe face
of it and some are asking why this was refused by the acting Gov
Court trials here and in every part of the United Slates are pub
lie and are kept above suspicion by this method.
It seems to us that a friendly nation or its representative should
be accorded the courtesy of being furnished a transcript of the
evidence in any ease in which the life of a citizen of that country
was involved and we can hardly imagine a case that it would be
improper to do this.
The Acting-Governor probably has some reason to refuse the
request of the Consulbut we doubt very much the wisdom of his
course unless it be that the Consul wished the Territory to pay for
tbe cost of the transcript as they did in the Douse case; If this is
the case we feel that the Consul should lie willing to pay for the
transcript or go without it.
Improvement of The need of building better public roads
the Public Roads, throught the United States has lonir been
felt by the farmers of the uation but has never be n taken up by
the wealthy class until the automobile came into general use by
them. After this class of our citizens took tbe matter up the cause
has been greatly advanced for the benefit of all and in time the
nation can boast of having the best roads of any nation on earth.
It was but a few years ago that the ollice of the Director of Pub
lic Reads was created and while the need of better roads tlren was
greater than it is now it was difficult to secure the necessary funds
to make practical demonstrations for the education of those whose
duty it was to look after the roads. This condition has changed
however and for the past two or three years the authorities have
been able to do much toward awakening interest in this much
At the present time the townships, counties and states are an
nually expending' $70,000,000 on the public roads and while much
of the work is being done by persons who are ignorant of the best
methods of road building there is being awakened much interest
in the subject and in time all of tbe roads will be built by intelli
gent authorities skilled in this branch of work.
Much educational work in the methods of building roads is be
ing done by the engineers of the Oflice of Public Roads who give
practical demonstration of road building which is known as object,
lesson road building. Its purpose is to instruct local road build
ers in the principles of road construction, to demonstrate the ad
vantage of a properly built road, and to ascertain the best local
material available for road building.
The office maintains a crops of highway engineers, expert road
foremen, and machinery operators for field duty; and also chemists,
geologists, and engineers to investigate by labatory and other tests
the properties and relative values of road materials. When a
county or community desires to improve its roads, application is
made to the office on a form which is furnished upon request. This
application provides that the local authorities shall guarantee right
of way, all materials, common labor, teams, and fuel, the Ollice 'to
furnish engineering, advice, surveys, esriinates expert supervision,
and road machinery.
In all one hundred aud thirteen roads have been built in this
way by the government and uielude roads in nearly every state
and territory in the Union.
Tbe average depth of the macadam used and approved by the
Office is seven inches and the widnh that is now used is eighteen
feet and the average cost of the same is sixty-seven cents per
square yard or $0,612.80 per mile of macadam road.
These figures taken from the report of the Office may ba found
of interest to those who criticise the board of supervisors and road
men in its employ for the extravagant expeudknre that they ima
gine is being made.
It is evident from the above that we in this county are building
roads of the same width and depth that is considered the- best by
the most expert road builders in the world and ot a less coast here
than is being done by the experts of national reputation.
