$100 imposed on Swift & Co., meat
packers, by City Court Judge Joseph

by the higher courts, according to
their attorneys. It will save this sum
to the customers.

rate as for the meat they contained.

ham weighing 11 pounds 6 ounces in
containers weighing 6 ounces and
charged for 11 pounds, 12 ounces of

Minnesota and Good Roads..
The Des Moines Register regards
Iowa's lax policy, or lack of policy,
in tl)e building of good roads with the
utmost impatience, and at the same
time holds up Minnesota as a shining
example of what can and ought to be
done by the Hawkeye state itself.
While acknowledging ..with becoming
modesty the complimentary references
to this commonwealth, we cannot but
commiserate Iowa for the unfortunate
position she finds herself in as far as
road building is concerned.
The great handicap the sister state
to the south of us labors under is that
the roads question there has been
shanghaied into politics. No deeper
misfortune could attend it, for as long
as the problem of good roads is the
sport of the politicians no highways
will be surfaced with gravel. The Reg
ister is doing its best to arouse the
press and through it the people of the
state to the importance of hard, per
manent, all-weather roads, and for the
sake of Iowa herself as well as those
numerous Minnesotans who motor
southward every year we wish the Des
Moines paper every success.
The Register is not the only daily
and Iowa is not the only state that
holds up Minnesota as a model in the
matter of road building. It is fortu
nately true that this state has made
a beginning, and a fine beginning, in
solving this great modern economic
problem. But neither Minnesota nor
any other commonwealth of the Mis
sissippi valley has really caught a
vision of its real duty with respect to
highway construction. We have here
no such vision as the countries of the
old world, or of California, for exam
This latter state is going about the
building of roads with something of
the same energy and the same spirit
as the pioneers of transcontinental
railway construction displayed a gen
eration ago. The state of California
and the towns of California are bond
ing themselves for millions upon mil
lions in order that every street and
every main highway and every side
road may be easily passable in all
kinds of weather. And it will pay our
Pacific coast brethem to expend money
freely in this way.
It may be said that California is
making this stupendous effort because
she is the great winter playgrounds
of the West. But California is no
more inviting as a winter resort than
Minnesota would be as a summer re
sort if we people here would take hold
of this problem boldly and build good,
hard roads all over the- state, rami
fying to every one of our incompara
ble lakes. Nor can the benefits to
the agriculture and industry of the
state be measured if such a course
The time for Minnesota to pat her
self on the back is not yet. That time
will only come when the people of
this state become aroused from their
lethargy and go at the problem of road
building with the largeness of outlook
and generosity of expenditure which
the gigantic nature of the task calls
for.St. Paul Pioneer-Press.
