i The Improved Roads.
' Of the 153,682 miles of improved
reads in the United ' States, Indiana
.[ .'has the largest mileage-that is, 23,
" 877 miles. Ohio occupies the second
place, with 23,460 miles. Wisconsin
ls third; with 10,633 miles; Kentucky
fourth, with 9485 miles;' California
fifth, with 8803 miles. Illinois, Mas
sachusetts and Michigan have over
7000 miles each; Minnesota over
6000 miles; Kew York over 5000
.miles; Tennessee over 4000 miles;
Connecticut, . Maine, Missouri, Nsw

In about two-thirds of the States,
.gravel has been the principal surfac
ing material used in improving the
roads. The largest mileage of gravel
roads was found in Indiana, Ohio,
Wisconsin, "Massachusetts. Michigan,
Minnesota, Illinois and California. In
eight States the mileage of macadam
roads exceeds that of gravel, and in a
few others it is nearly equal. Ken
tucky has the largest mileage of road
surfaced with stoned-over S?00 miles
-and Ohio is second with a little
Ey comparing the percentage of
reads' improved with, the population
per mile of road, it will be noticed I
that' in most cases the States which
have the, highest percentage of im
proved roads have' the largest popu- .
Jation per mil? of road, and vice
versa. While it cannot be claimed for
improved roads that they invariably
lead to increase in population, good
roads are certainly a powerful factor
in encouraging immigration, especial
ly in sparsely settled regions.
The percentage of improved roads
in any community or State depends
upon a variety of causes, the most
Important of which may be summed
up as follows: (1) Availability of
suitable road-building, material; (2)''
wealth of the. State in agriculture,.:
manufactories, transportation, etc.;
(3) requirements of traffic. Prosper
ity promotes a desire for the advan
tages and benefits, to be derived ^rom
the improvement of the roads; but
whether a community is rici in agri
culture or otherwise, if lt has to de
pend on materials Imported from dis
tant places, progress In the improve
ment of the roads will be ranch
flower than if local materiais are
There : are several other reasons
whyjthe percentage of Improved roads
is higher in 6ome of the States than
in others. The high percentage of
, improved roads in Massachusetts,
Rhode Island, Connecticut and also
New Jersey is due principally to the
facts that suitable road-building ma
terials abound, that these States are
densely populated, and that many of
the roads have been built through
the aid of the States and under the
direction of competent State authori
ties. Indiana and Ohio have an un
usually high percentage of improved
roads, because these States are abund
antly supplied with good road-build
ing stone and gravel and because the
social and economic conditions were
favorable to the making of public im
A comparison of the percentage of
roads improved with the acreage
values of farm lands in the United
States shows that the average per
centage of the impend roads in all.
States where th^Wand is worth less
than $20 per acre is 1.9 per cent.,
whereas in the 'States showing an
acreage value of more than $20, im
proved roads constitute an average of
nine per cent, of the total mileage.
Expressed inversely, the States show
ing a. high percentage of improved
roads have on the average relatively
high acreage values, while those
.showing a low percentage have low
The Highway Commission has ex
perimented with macadam roads cost
ing from $3000 to $4000 per mile,
fine gravel roads costing from $1000
to $1500 a mile, sand-clad roads at
$800 per mile. Wherever good reads
have been constructed farm lands
have increased from twenty-five to
100 per cent in value. The Govern
or declares that no expenditure of
public money brings such immediate
benefits as for good'roads, not to men?
tion the comfort and pleasure it gives
to landowners and everybody dwell
ing permanently or transiently within
the States. There has been a great.
educational awakening in Virginia of
late, farm values have been wonder
fully enhanced, and outside capital
attracted to an astonishing extent.

Senator Crawford Calls on Seer
Statement of the Facts Beg?
Necessities-If Data Fai
Washington, D. C.-The alarming
increase in the cos; of living, due to
the rapid and constant advance in the
price of necessities, is to be investi
gated by the Government.
Senator Crawford, of South Da
kota, has asked Secretary Nagel, of
the Department of Commerce and
Labor, for a conservative statement of
the facts. Should the Secretary, from
data in his possession, fail to give the
desired information, Senator Craw
ford will press a resolution in the
Senate, ' directing the Commissioner
to investigate and report to Congress
early, that there may be prompt
Senator Craviord purposes to get
at the bottom facts as to the advance
in prices. There is suspicion in his
part.of the country that combination
and : community of Interest:: have
something to do with conditions that
are alarming and fast growing intol
erable. Senator Crawford is an op
ponent of all monopolistic trusts and
corners in farm and dairy products.
Preliminary investigations show
there have been no reports from the
Commissioner of Labor on the costs
of living, the advance in. price of
necessities and the value of labor
since, 1907.. At tliat time a report
was made that labor was not able to
purchase as much as in previous
years. The report was severely criti
cised by Republican statesmen, be
cause a political campaign ,was about
to open. An amended report soon
appea/ed, and its comparisons, more
exhaustive than in the first report,
explained some of the most damaging
statements previously made.
Increased Cost 37 Per Cent.
Since 1907 there has been a sharp
increase la the cost of living, and a
gradual increase for a dozen years.
In a special dispatch to The American
from Trenton, N. J., it was stated by
the State Board of Labor and Statis
tics that the cost of living in New
I Jersey has increased in thirteen years
37.13 per cent. . .
These facts have been brought
home to a number of Senators by
their constituents. The people want
to know whether combinations and
price arrangements have raised cost
to consumers; what the farmer nnd
the middle man get, to determine
whether the margins of profit are too
great. Senator Crawford will have
Tittle difficulty in getting his resolu
tions of inquiry passed.
Senator Bristow, of Kansas, be
lieves combinations have something
to do with the advance of the cost of
necessities, but thinks that the desire
for luxuries has more.
"The people have grown accus
tomed to luxuries," he said. "For
years they got the best of everything
at prices lower than now. When
prices were advanced because of de
mand, they had to take the next best.
The result has been a general advance
of all grades of necessities. I believe
the combinations have had much to
do with it, but not all. .
"When the wholesaler advances
slightly, the retailer advances, and
the two or more advances made be
fore the article reaches the consumer
makes the general advance a burden
on the wage-earner. I would like to
know the relationship that exists in
all cases or in large communities be
tween wholesaler and the retailer.
I have heard, but do not know, that
in some instances the wholesaler con
trols the retailers and fixes the retail
"I do not think the tariff can be
held responsible for these advances.

There can be no defense of the
woolen schedules, no justification for
the sugar tariffs except to insure per
petuity to the Sugar Trust.
"I cannot see what good results
would flow from an investigation of
these conditions at this time."
Senator Perkins, of California, be
lieves the. advance is due to the law
of supply and demand, that produc
tion has not kept pace with the
growth of population.
"Many years ago, I was a cattle
raiser," he said. '"'We got $12 to
$15 for a steer. To-day that steer
brings $45 to $50. I sold sheep at
$1.50 a head. They now bring $5
for mutton. Wheat has sold at fifty
cents a bushel; it is now more than
$1 In Chicago. The cattle raiser and
the wheat grower get a large per
centage of this increase.
"Formerly the cities could be fed
in large part by the product of sur
rounding territory. Now the neces

Cost (o Go Still Higher.
That the cost of living soon will be
greater than ever before, is indicated
by the December report, just Issued
by the Bradstreet Company. The re
port shows that the prices of com
modities to-day are within a small
.'raction of the record.
Up to date the highest prices ever
known in this country for commodi
ties was March 1, 1907. According
to Bradstreet's table of index num
bers, on .December 1, this year, the
level stood at $9.1262. On March 1,
1907, the level was $9.1290. That
?3, the price of commodities to-day Is
within a small fraction of one per
cent, of the highest record.
Bradstreet's report shows that,
theoretically, a man going to the
wholesale market place to purchase a
pound of each of ninety-six articles
would have had to pay on December
1 of this year .about $9.12%. On
Ma/ch 1 last like goods might have
been purchased for nearly ninjty-one
cents less, while on December 1,
190S, they were cheaper by 91.35
Bradstreet's Index numbers are tho
totals of the prices per pound of nine
ty-six articles, quarterly or monthly,
which is ur.ed as a standard of com
The groups that make up the Index
numbers are set out in the following
