END OF BIGEIM'S
Pledges Assure Retirement
of Commissioner Conncll
a rossible ouccessor.
One of tho first official acts of Dr.
Martin O. Brumbaugh when he becomes
(lovcrnor of Pennsylvania will be a com
plete reorganization of the State High
ways Department, It was admitted by
political leaders today. Thev added that
when he carries put his pledge to place
tho department on n highly clDclent
basis, Governor Urumbaugh, Instead of
being hampered by the Republican HtaU
lenders, will have their united support.
The first Btep In tho reorganization, Jt
Is expected, will be the retirement of B.
M. Hlgelow ns Highway Commissioner
This Is generally admitted by nil of th.
Republican chiefs, Including flenatq
Penrose. Penrose admitted that Blgel
must go as early as last October, whi
the Republican State Committee met Iri
Pittsburgh. Tho Senator at that time-
roruscu to permit tho State Commutes
to Includo In tho Republican platform
nn Indorsement of tho Tenor admlnlsl
trillion, because of the 111 repute In
which Hlgelow has placed the Stntt
Highway Department. I
Tho Governor-elect pledged "100 cents'
worth of good roads for every 100 cents
of taxes paid for roads" frequently duri
Ing his campaign, and at CochranvllU
(luring tile week previous to election. In
answer to a direct question as ,to
wneuior ne would oust Illgclowj lie
Pledged himself to "completely" reor
ganize the State Highway Department.
Many political leaders expect that Blgjo
low wltl resign before Doctor Brumbaugh
Is Inaugurated. The Highway Commis
sioner has been In extremely 111 healWi
recently, and they point out that he couli
resign for that reason, and thus avoid a
public repudiation of his administration.
Talk of UIgelow's successor has cen
tered so far around only ono man. Hi is
William H. Conncll. chief of the Highway
Bureau of Philadelphia. The Govcrnor-
elect knows Chief Connelt personally, and
Is known to consider him an clllclcnt road
builder and a good executive. In support
of their assertions that Chief Connell-ls
being considered as a possible successor
to Blgelow, politicians today pointed tf
the letter sent last week by Dlrec I
Cooke to Chairman Connelly, of Counc I
Flnnnco Committee, in which Directd
Cooke asked an increase of (2000 to ChH
Conneli s salary.
Director Cooke In his letter Intlmat
that the city might loses tho services
Chief O'Conncll, nnd asked that the
crease be granted in an effort to ke
him In his present position.
The Governor-elect, however, has novyl
committed hlmseir as to wnctner ne at
sires n "road-builder" at the heau or tr
State Highways Department or not. Born
of his friends have said that he favor
first of all a good executive for the pos"
Hon, a man who would give a good busi
ness administration of his duties, anc
politicians are today discussing the prot
ablllty of the Governor-elect appointing rj
"business man" in Hlgelow's place, an
relying upon his nppolntee to employ tn
engineers to do the road building, prcjb
ably under civil service regulations. u
