PROPOSED By BACON
EMERGENCY CfiEW TO
By GEORGE H. GALL.
"With no malice toward those who
arc advocating p. roadway to Gettys
burg as a memorial to Abraham Lin
coln, and solicitous only that an ade
quate memorial be erected to -the mar-1
tyied. President. Henry Bacon, noted
architect or New York and author or
the design selected by the Lincoln Me
morial Commlsiion tor a monumental
building on Potomac Park, is in the city
today and disclosed to a representative
of The Times an entirely new idea with
reference to the memorial, which may
receive favorable consideration by the
House of Representatives when the
matter Is taken up this afternoon.
Mr. Bacon suggests to those who
would honor the memory of Lincoln
with a roadway, that two highways be
built, both forming avenues leading to
the monumental structure which is pro
posed to' be built at the western end of
the Mall as a terminus. Incidentally,
If Mr. Bacon's suggestion be carried
out, it ' will realize two of the most
Important features of the Park Com
misgloif plan for the development or
Washington, the construction of the
Memorial bridge and the parkway con
Mctlon between Potomac and Rok
Creek parks and beyond.
"If a monumental roadway is built,
one of its essentials is a terminal that
shall be monumental," lie said.
"An examination of the plan of the
city of Washington discloses the fact
that if the Lincoln Memorial recom
Tiiended to Congress is built on the site
in Potomac Park, It win be an appro
priate terminal for two possible monu
mental roadways, one leading to the
north through Rock Creek Park, the
other leading to the- south by means of
a bridge across the Potomac, directly
connecting the memorial of the man
who saved tho Union with Arlington
Cemetery; where those are burled who
died on the battlefields.
"This bridge, joining Virginia with
the District of Columbia, would, more
over, be a symbol ot the reunion of the
North and the South, augmenting the
Importance of the Lincoln Memorial.
"Few persons have controversy with
lhose advocating good roads for gen
eral use, but many heartily believe that
a roadway would not be an adequate
memorial to Lincoln.
"A Lincoln Memorial on the Potomac
'Park site will help by means of its Im
portant position the building of monu
mental roadways, and those advocating
roadways should realize this proba
bility. On all the plans showing the
development of Potomac Park the begin
ning or the two roads above mentioned
are indicated, and on the plans of the
Lincoln Memorial submitted recently to

monumental highways And so monu
mental a place, and one so capable of
majestic treatment as Is this point on
the great axis, of the Capitol and the
"Washington Monument, to have the two
highways begin. It is proposed to raise
the ground at the site, xormlng a ter
race 1,000 feet in diameter, and the Jloor
of the memorial Is proposed to be on a
level forty-five feet above the present
2Rows of trees on the outer edge of
Iher terrace will partly Inclose the space
in which the memorial stands, and will
give to it the character of a sacral
grove. Wide avenues are planned lead
ing from It to the broad waters of the
Potomac and to the Washington Monu
ment. On this site in all directions is a
free and large field for landscape treat
ment. It is the best site in the United
States for a memorial to Abraham Lin
coln." Recalling as an illustration the Appian
Way as a memorial, Mr. Bacon declared
that the one feature of the road which
partakes of a purely monumental char
acter Is the terminal at Britidisi, where
the road ends on the brow of a bluff
overlooking the sea and where stands
a lone column, erected by the Romans
to mark the place where Roman leg
ions embarked for war.
Would Be UsefuL
The architect declares that In respect
to usefulness tile proposed Lincoln
Memorial would be far superior to any
roadway that might be constructed.
"What could be more useful," he asked,
"than a great monumental structure
inspiring all who behold It with the
Ideals for which Lincoln lived and died?
There can be nothing more useful than
an inspiration to good ctlzenshlp."
Mr. Bacon is a contender for good
rouds, and bees ahead the time soon at
hand when, through the operation of
the parcel post, it will be necessary to
deliver parcels by automobiles to rural
districts. Against that time ho would
have adequate roads built. But these,
lie points out, should not be built under
the guise that they are for some me
morial purpose. They will not be built,
lie bays, to do honor to anv great man.

Hatfield, former Senator George L.

Johnson, authorized the chairman to
give out the following in reply to the
statement made by Matthew Hale and
printed In the Sunday newspapers:
Matthew Hale, assuming to be, or
at least to speak for, the Progressive
party, again flouts the suggestion of
Frank A. Munsey for an amalgama
tion of the Republican and Progressive
"He abandons the charge of 'hypoc
risy' against the Republican State com
mittee, so carelessly made In his previ
ous statement, and takes new but by
no means more substantial ground
from which to dismiss the suggestion
for a. united party. He now says that
the Progressive party is not willing to
betray a large number of its members
to get Into office. The Progressive party
was not asked by Mr. Munsey to 'be
tray' any of its members. Nothing was
suggested by the Republican State com
mittee except a willingness and a desire
to meet Progressives and discuss a plan
whereby the two parties can unite for
the common welfare.
Worked for the Cause.
"And It is well for the public to
bear in mind that that suggestion
originated with the man who, in the
campaign last spring for delegates to
the national convention and in the na

the enthusiasm and the great publicity

which to work did as much. If hot
