j y To Tiir. EutTon oy The Scn Sir- In an
j! - article, tbe most Interesting paragraph of
' J which was nuoted In TltESL'iof Monday, the
1 1 ft Srntlti'lof Indianapolis said that McKlnley will
M be the third Methodist President of the United
j States, eight of his predecessors having been
j ) Episcopalians, six Presbyterians, two Unlta-
j? rlans, one Christian, and oDe a freethinker.
I j c Tbe ,SVn((ncI Is usually an accurate paper, but
j .' 1 It has fallen Into some mistakes In this matter.
:i f Mr McKlnley will not be the third Methodist
W W President of the United States; he Is the fourth
Methodist, and. In fact, all the Presidents In
it S office from 1801 to 1881 were Methodists, dur-
I ,' , log what waa perhaps the most eventful period
! L f r of the nation's history. Gen. Garfield was a
I , ' member of the Church of the Disciples. Gen.
I . ! Harrison and Cleveland are both Presbyterians.
I it Oen. Arthur, like tbe early President, with
I ; R very few exceptions, was the son of a Baptist
! ', r minister, but himself was classed as an Kplsco-
I ( ( ? pallan. The Adamses were Congregatlnnallsts.
i ( I Jackson, Polk, and Buchanan ware Presbyte-
i ', rlans. Martin Van Iiuren was a member of the
J -1 , ? Reformed Dutch Church. There has never
j ) ' been, so far as I know, a Baptist President ef
.' J ' the United States, though the Baptists ot this
i" ftj. country are a numerous and public-spirited
i i body of clttrens. There has never been a Lu-
J j If tberan President, and there never has been,
'i i s and probably will never be, a Catbollo or
i Jewish President. In deference to the crowded
j I conaltlon of the columns of Tne Sun with in-
1 ,' il terestlng Information, accurate news and phll-
' , u oaopblcal dissertations, I refrain from any
' ' , allusion to the religious or Irreligious views of

(i ' P To the Editor or The Hn.v Sir: Various re-
1 J, ports say that Spain may accept the "good

r' i k' present Administration will consider It a
si I j W triumph of Its diplomacy. If the Government
j I p ot Cuba Is a "paper Government," or If It has
I it, not enough stability to warrant onraoknowl-
jjk mlgment; If It Is the belief of the Admlnlstra-
f a tlon that a ante ot anarchy exists, between
! S whom and bpaln Is Mr. Olney to exert his good
-j f ij, offices? The very word Intervention either
J W carries with It the Idea of the equality of the
1 5 fy opposing parties, or at least signifies that the
l( flit weaker side has Indisputable rights. Now, the
J j," very first rights of a people struggling for free-

I fe" present laws the people of the State work out
1 fj their road taxes without Intelligent supervision,
J S j, and often not only Is tho labor wasted, but the
J " roads are spoiled.
3ft The faults of our roads which could be reme-
f n died without extra expense la labor are moiuly
i Is these I
n f 1. The roads nro too narrow and too high In
J,' the centre. On account of tbe narrowness the
j !; wheels all run In tbe same tracK and the ex
't if treme curtature of the roadbed compels the
. " J wheels to run on tho edge Instead of tbe surface
1 J of the tires, the combination of tbe two faults
. H causing tbe formation of deep ruts.
f H t .. ,J- Ioose stones are allowed to remain In tbe

In different parts of the tate to serve as ob

from this the length of time that It would take
to develop any general system ot Male roads In
We must, therefore, while doing what we can
for the cause of Slate highways which certainly
should be hullt develop a system of supervi
sion over the rosd work as done at present.
Our legislators should aim at some plan far

the State with a reasonable number of first

method of working roads.
A money road tax Is apparently not practi

The Important reasons for road Improvement
throughout the Slate are three: Klr.U, the Ue
slratlllty of reducing the cost of hauling: sec
ond, the Importance of making most of our
roads fit fortdeasuredrlvlng, thereby attracting
to the rural districts In summer thousands of
people who create a local market for various
farm products: third, tlieecnnomlr principle nf
preventing the great waste of labor which Is
now fruitlessly expended In making bad roads.
In order to meet these rnj ilretnenta ll Is sue
gistnd that a bureau of road Improvement be
Lrrattd by the "tnte. with nt first, a small ap
prnpritlon nf (i bo lit 310.000 fur the practical
hiily of the road problem In Now York, and

a friend of tntno has killed eleven foxes, Ave of

this that they are not confined to the northern part

These foxes are a pest as they do not lend on, as
does tbe red fox. but circle around In a thick swamp
and when hard pressed take to a tree and unless
the dog continues to give tongue the hunt Is tip.
Our most successful hunter. John K. lUcon. has

with an Intermediate tunnel 000 feet long.
The present tunnel Is a mile lo3g. Tbe com
pany owns a right of wiy through tbe hill

the now thoroughfare without having It di

asked to acate several unused streets, and
as compensation the company will lay out
two new street' alongside the western cut.
This will necessitate rnxny chance In the
street system on the Heights near the cut. It
will bo nece'Stry to build bridges, and the

The latest development In the Ohio bitumi
nous coat war Is a call for a meeting ot the
executive and standing committees ot the Ohio
Coal Traffic Association for next Tuesday to In
vestigate charges of rate cutting by tho Haiti
more and Ohio Railroad. The meeting will be
held In Chicago. In advanco of the meeting
Receiver Murray of the Haltlmore and Ohio
Railroad asserts that there is no foundation for
the charges. Similar allegations have beon
made against tbe receivers of the Haltlmore and
Ohio Railroad regarding Ita transportation of
bituminous coal to the seaboard. Formal
charges have not. however, been made. Re
garding the alleged cutting of Eastern coal rates
the receivers of the Haltlmore and Ohio Com
pany have Issued an official statement.
In their statement tbe recelveis call attention
to the fact that some years ago the Pennsyl
vania and the Baltimore and Ohio companies
carried practically all of tbe steam coal to the
seaboard. The consteut development of bitu
minous mining Interests In other localities,
notably along the lines of the Norfolk and
Western and Chesapeake and Ohio railroads,
has, according lo tho receivers, cut Into the
business of the Ilaltlmoro and Ohio road with
out affecting perceptibly the percentage of truf
fle carried by the Pennsylvania Railroad. Tbe
receivers nt the Haltlmore and Ohio propose to
recover a part of this traffic, and the) claim
that they are doing so, not by cutting rates, b it
by furnishing lirtter and more ample facllitiis
than heretofore, and by energetic cnnvasiig
for basinets. Ther den) that tbe cutting uf
rvtes Is part of their campaign
They call attention tn the fact that 4.123 coal
cars have been added to tbe equipment of the
road, that a number of mines tributary tn It
that were closed have been reopened, and that
others have Increased their output. It Is not
anticipated that with new competitors In the
Hold the Haltlmore aud Onlo coinpan) will re
gain Its fnrmr proportion of the seaboard coal
traffic: but It Is proposed to Increase the traftld
naturally tributary tu tbe company's lines. At
tention Is called tn the fart that during: the
four months ending Oct. .11. the company ban
a'ed 12,000 tons of coal les than dur
ing the same months of 18115; yet upon
this reduced tonnage it derived a rev
enue lstv.000 larger than during the cor
responding period of tbe previous year. The
statement says In conclusion : " Tbe Haltlmore
and Ohio Railroad has arisen from Its somno
lent condition, and Is an active highway for the
traffic of the country; and it Is positive!) true
thai It Is obtaining any position It seeks by
thoroughly legitimate methods, and expects to
obtain greater results from Ita present policy
The company has not been remiss In the de
velopment of Its local industries. Those which
are alretdy located on Its line without other
outlets have been eucouraged, and the road has
been opened tn the settlement nnd location of
others whose business is desirable."
