GOOD ROADS FOR
Answer to Question How to Get Them

Spend it Intelligently.
Mr. M. L. Shipman, commissioner
of Labor and Printing, North Caro
Aina, addressed the Good Roads Con
j ?ress recently held in Asheville, in
the following clear and pointed sug
gestions, which we print iii full as
helpful in the great campaign of f lu

"Mr. President and gentlemen:
The object of this meeting has
been clearly and tersely stated: "How
can we obtain good roads* in ,the
Southern Appalachian Mountains?*'
To this the obvious answers are:
lit've the will to get them; get the
money to build them; spend the mon
ti' right. These things mean, of
i coarse, the collective will, the con
certed action, the unselfish purpose
of the whole people. And that is an
idle ideal without education. The
iirst step therefore is to preach, to
demonstrate, to insist; to advertise
and Illustrate; to repeat and and re
iterate. There will' be need too of
tact, need' of statesmanship, need of
ratience. The instruction must be
concrete, in words of one syllable, In
examples of dollars and cents. Before
the collective impulse is obtained,
there will have.to be individual con
viction-conviction und conversion,
too. of a people who are strong in
the tenacity with which they cling to
old ways, cautious before they are
led to accept new doctrines. There
will have to be a propaganda of
unity among a people prone to ?dl?

mountain character for that.* The
thing is to make them see that they
want. them. Among the experts that
are gathered here it would be worse
than useless for me to attempt to set
.forth thc advantages of good roads ,
over'bad ones. It would be idle for me
to go into the question of how the ,
reids should be built, when the time
conj es to do the actual work of con
struction. In this respect I know that ?
I sm not an expert. I know it not ,
from innate modesty but from sad ex
per:ence. In common, I take it, with ?
many another who ls here today, I ?
have built roads, or assisted in con- ?
structing them, myself. And I have ,
ric?den over my own handiwork af- j
terwards-hub deep-and cussed it as ,
I rode. The bitter ?umor of the old- ?
fashioned method or road, building ,
h'is already sunk eeep into the un- .
deistanding of the people. When the ?
.time for the great revival comes, the
work will' be in able hands. And the i
I.? opie will not regret their sweat.
But let us in the spirit of confi- j
dence that should characterize this
meeting, confess that old prejudices
are slow In dying among us. In spite
of improvement here and there, in
spite of healthy and slowly leavening'
agitation now and then, the work
yet almost awaits its start. Among
other things, some of us haye inciden
tally-now and then-"dabbled" in
politics. When we haven't gone In
swimming ourselves, we have observ
ed others sailing their unstable crafts
on the s?a of statemanshlp. And we
hace also observed that the easiest
way for any ambitious servant of
the people to commit legislative har!
kari by means of political shipwreck,
bas been to pass a road law for his
ceunty. This question of good roads Is
one calling for the broadest states
manship rather than any brand of
poliiics. but even measures of states
manship must be executed by politi
cians. In any handling of this ques
tion, therefore, the politician must be
considered and protected-not only
for his own good, but for the good of
the cause itself. For politicians are
not good martyrs unless there is an
Issue in the role, and we must not
expect to pave our roads with thu
political corpses of self-sacrificing leg
islators. Under such a system, even
those roads that we have would
speedily fall into a state of sad dis
repair-not to say inocuous de
Out of Politics.
The matter of roads, therefore,
should be, In as large measure as
possible, taken out of the hands of
county determination. By this I do
not mean, of course, to advocate a
centralized system under the complete
control of either state or nation. But
there should be given an incentive to
tho counties and townships to declare
for, and tax themselves for, good
loads in return for and In considera
tion of assistance from the state al j
large. To tho end of highways that
shall be properly constructed, thal j
shail be judiciously planned and thai I
shall be the logical parts of a s.;st^ir I
dpstined tn not-wnrlr tho state witt I
Ity of conception; and construction.
Once the state is as thoroughly com
mitted to the principle of good roads
aa the people are to good scho'ls.
there will be at once the end or '
hazard method and ill-defined v
The old religious conception of the
moral advantage of a rough and "nar-,
row" way has been relegated finally
to the realm of allegory, That is
where lt belongs. "Facilis descensus
averni" may have once bern true. Our
aim now ought to be to make the way
to market.equally broad and equally
smooth. It is to an industrial and
commercial haven that we must look
for the broadest measure of moral
e.Tpansion. The road that is narrow
ls mow the road preferred by vice
and shunned by virtue. Thc church
and the school house seek the high
way. Heretofore, the very vital need
V-jo'ch every resident of -our dountry
districts has felt for improved high
ways has, in a sense, contributed
through jealousy and contention to
postpone and hamper the good work.
Who of us has not ,sickened at the
spectacle of county wrangles over
road routes? Who, if he has ever
yielded so far tb ambition as to sit
on a county board, has not prayed
fervently to be delivered? Or, if he
has been merely a spectator of their
troubles and an auditor of the abuse
und scandal heaped upon their de
fc-.i.eless heads, has not, taken sat
i-'action in the thought that his trou
bles, at 1er ~t, were not complicated
by the laudable desire to shoulder
those of, his friends and neighbors?
From, the very nature of the case, the
county unit ls too small an one to
permit of the proper mapping of even
Its own roads.
, Individual Work
However weil the work may be
done in the 'individual county-and
there are brjAWojit examples-it must
inevitably, if performed with sole re
gard for such a unit, not only result
In discord and lamentable dissension,
but it must also fail of its best op
portunity, in scope, in purpose and in
progressive economy. What we need,
therefore, in these comparatively
cmaller counties of the west, is a sys
tem of road building, declared upon
and endorsed by the state, which will
aid the county m. its work, while at
the same time giving full scope
for the exercise of county enterprise
and the enlistment of county pride.
Already there ls In the state policy
towards schools a feature that it seems
to me is a dlroct precedent and jus
tification of the general plan that I
have in mind on this road matter. I
refer to the fund fwm which we are
establishing the rural school libraries?
I have not the figures at hand, nor
am I proposing to deal in figures,
(even a statistician must now and
then take a day off in the interest of
truth) but we all know the gratifying
success and extension which has fol
lowed thc execution of that policy. In
short, the state sets aside a fund,
raised by taxation out of tne whole
people, and says to every school dis
trict in) tho state: "See here, do you
want a library In your school? Then
go to work to get one.

by tho people with voluntary dona

wanted to get the benefit of the state

measure the volume or gauge the
mrrent of the swelling flood of In
fluence for good set in motion by this
one simple device, the beauty of which
is Its utter democracy o? operation,
from centralized charity or patronage. .

Suppose the state were first to com
mit itself to a great tnountain-to-the
3ea turnpike, beginn*n,?, say at Ashe
ville and terminating at Wilmington.
Suppose that to encourage the con
struction of feeders to this great ar
terial highway it wera to issue ita
bonds in adequate amount, and de
posit them with the ?tate treasurer to
be delivered in proportion to bonds
lssutd by the several counties for
road? . within their borders, planned
and surveyed in accordance with the
comprehensive suggestion and advice
of an expert and far-seeng highway
commission? Would not such a plan
stir thi- local pride iii eael'. county?
Would Miere not be a rush on the
part of Tie people to obtain t':cir pro
portions a benefit of thut to.' which
they world all be proportionately
taxed? Would the counties ."nd the
people ntU catch the. fever 01 doing

tight thing to do while neglecting to

It would mark the end of bickering

vote, each township would have its
say, each citizen would have his
voice. The. result would be the results
of the majority-Vox Popull malting

Hope of West.
It is out of some such policy as
this-which I have roughly suggest
ed-that I conceive must come
the hope of Western counties for ad
equate roads. We have here the rich
est heritage of nature, but nature
"seems to guage the measure of hex
rewards to men by the measure ol
men's toil. Through the years in this

own Herculean task, forgetting in the
realization of the. work the infinite
.quality and quantity of thc infinite.

Railroads and Manufacturing.
Here and there a railroad has
burrowed into our'mountains. Along
the i-ailroads /wc have prospered in
manufacturing, in mining, in the
smallest proportional way in the
transportation of oar products. The
railroads are the arteries of trade,
leading from the mountains to the
plains and to the sea. Where are the
veins of that trade, the lateral system
wherein must circulate the blood of.
our body of . civilization? Shall we
keep them clogged, as now, with hu
mors and misgivings? Or shall we
take a physic for our health? It is to

No policy such as has been hinted
could, of course, escape two classes of
critics who are always with us. We
might safely count, I am sure, cn the
objection of some constitutional law
yers and on objection, on the same
ground, from some legal laymen fond
of referring to Magna Charta and. the
Bill of Rights as tne ''greatest doc
kyments ever written." We might also
count, to a surety, on the vociferous
objections of certain parties at home
and elsewhere, who, at the men
tion of bonds for any purpose, are
apt to froth at the mouth between
loud cries of "pay as you ge," and
gasps of "Putting a burden on pos
In answer to the constitutional stu
dents it might be suggested that state
aid to roads is founded on precedents
running imo and behind the "Dark
A^es," and so good that some of the
roads that resulted stand today aa
nmdels after the passage of time so
vast that not even hieroglyphics can
record its beginning. Also that the
constitution of the United States
would be a better working document
did the present government do moro
toward extracting the usefulness out
i of the "Post Road Clause" and that
' the state certainly contains nothing
prohibitory and much oat of which
the power could be logically con
strued. While to our friends of the
"pay as you go" morality for the
poople (they without exception are
willing to take credit for themselves)
might be answered their gasping sollc

The President reserves to himself
the right to decide what those poli
cies are. He has said in public ad
dresses that he, more than auy other
man, perhaps, had been in a position
to know just what Roosevelt did or
did not believe.
"Mr. Roosevelt's chief policy." he
has said, "was the determination to
make the great corporations of the
country obey the law, and those cor- j
porations included the railroads and
the great industrial corporations that
do a large industrial business and
that have shown a tendency to mon
opolize that business and suppress
Mr. Taft has indicated clearly
enough in his speeches what his mes
sage will be.
It will recommend an unusually
long program for Congress and one
that is likely to revive a goon deal
of the hostility shown to tho Roose-1
felt Administration on the score of

made at once, j
! part of the
.. _. except to the Supreme
Court. This is to make the Hepburn
rate bill effective. He will peint out
that the Ave judges, having no other
business before them, can not only
expedite legislation, but naturally'
will become rate experts.
There will be also a recommenda
tion of a tribunal that will pass on
how many bonds and how many
shares of stock every interstate rail
road may issue, to prevent the water
ing of stock. At one time the Presi
dent said: "This is important, be
cause when you water stock you only
do it to deceive people and get them
to pay more than the stock is worth."
? Further, Mr. Taft said, it is wrong
because it builds a false foundation
on which to reckon what reasonable
freight rates are.
To further expedite the work of
making railroads obey the law, the
President will recommend a reorgani
zation of the Bureau of Corporations,
the Interstate Commerce Commission
and the Department of Justice that
the three may work progressively and
not be stumbling over one another,
as they are under the present sys
tem. But the Tresident will make it
clear that he is not attacking: corpor
ations that work legitimately. His
own expression on that subject is:
"We could not get along without
corporations. They are a necessary
instrument in the business of the
country. But as we give them privil
eges, so they must recognize the re
sponsibility with which they exercise
power, and we must have the means
of compelling them to recognize that
responsibility and to keep them with
in the law."
The President will recommend an
amendment to the anti-trust law that
he thinks will make it effective. The
present terms are so broad that in his
mind it is not enforcable, as it makes
no distinction between a reasonable
and an unreasonable restraint of trade
-a difference that is recognized by
the common law. He will recommend
that the law be amended to narrow
and confine it to combinations and
conspiracies to suppress" competition
and establish monopolies, ard to leave
out the denunciations of general re
straints of trade. He will not recom
mend that labor unions be specifically

The President's position on the
subject of honesty in business is as*
summarized by himself:
"It takes some time for a series, of
courts to make a decision which shall
be plain to the business world. But

President Taft will recommend con

that these subjects include also reten

On the subject of waterways the
message will recommend continuance
and extension of harbor work,- such as ;
the San Pedro Harbor, on the Califor

for work on the Inland waterways
will be most conservative. The Presi

Mississippi River, but his conclusions .
did not encourage the inland water

Regarding the Mississippi thc Pres-V

Government have been spent the pro

the commerce will justify the expense,
and that the shippers will not c:esert

conditions fulfilled, the President will
state he is in favor of the Government
