A Scheme of the Bridge Combine.
An effort is being made to work up
sentiment to repeal the Dunn road law
and abolish the state highwey com
mission, on the plea of "home rule"
for the various towns. If we under
stand the proposition it is to have
road work revert back to the old town
ship system, which was' a miserable
failure. The good roads of Minnesota
are largely the result of the state
highway commission and the Dunn
law. The money is now expended by
the county commissioners, under di
rection of a state highway engineer,
and the plan has been a great suc
cess. There are rumors that the

I Burton Don't Appeal to Edwards.
We have been receiving considerable
literature of late urging the claims
of Theodore E. Burton, of Ohio, to
the republican nomination for the
presidency. Mr. Burton appeals to
I us in just about the same way that
a dose of seven-year itch would appeal
to an armless man. In short, we
can't "see" Mr. Burton as president
o_f these United States, and we be
jlieve there are enough voters who
feel just as we do to make his
nomination a remote possibility and
his election an impossibility.Breck
"Highway Home Rule."
There is a movement on foot, backed
by an organization calling itself the
"Minnesota Highway Home Rule as
sociation," to repeal the Dunn road
law, abolish state supervision of road
building, ard return to some anoma
lous, anarchic state of township con
If any such move as that should
succeed, it should be paralleled by the
absolute repeal of every penny of
state aid. The state should never
spend a dollar on roads the routing
and building and maintenance of
which it has no say.
Roads can't be built without system
any more than any thing else. Min
nesota could no more expect to ac
quire a correlated road system by
township plan than a man could ex
pect to build a house by putting a
crew of unskilled workmen on the job
without plans or directions.
The township should do township
road work, with the work of the sev
eral townships correlated by the coun
ty. The county should do county road
work, with the work of the several
counties correlated by the state. The
state, with its broader vision, should
generally supervise and suggest uni
form methods promoting efficiency
There should be more centralized
organization of road work, not less.
If anything is done to the Dunn road
law it should be in that directionthe
direction of more coherent and better
planned workrather than in the di
rection sought by this "home rule"
movement, which is the direction of
anarchy and waste and inefficiency.
The Herald notes the charge that
this "home rule" movement is backed
by a conspiracy of bridge contractors,
but it knows nothing of that. It is
very plain, though, that it is a stupid
movement with stupid aims, and that
it ought to be defeated at all costs
if Minnesota is ever to have a real
road system.Duluth Herald.
