GOOD ROADS DEPARTMENT *
By the Good Roads League. *
* * * * * * * * ** * * ** *
We determined at the outset to run
is campaign for roads along broad
ies and in a liberal spirit. The issue
volved is of such far-reaching im
)rtance that any other kind of dis
ssion is unworthy of the cause and
tirely out of place. No man has a
-ht to trifle with the public weal.
knew there would be strong oppo
ii. We expected that opposition
xpress itself as it is its duty to do.
-hole people have never been unan
1s on any subject. The opponents
ny cause have as much right to
opinions as its advocates, but
ore. What we did expect and
a right to expect is that in this
ssion there should be no ques
s about motives.
The following statement of facts
ould remove all misapprehension
hat may exist in t.he minds.of any.
(1) No man sought membership on
is commission. Ev&rv man who has
epted a place has done so with re
tance. The commission was named
E. H. Aull and the writer who
e appointed by a committee from
Good Roads League to draw a
1. It ought to be a source of gratifi
tion to the people of the County
tt there are men like these who are
illing to assume such large respon
ibilities of a public nature from a
igh sense of civic , ide and duty.
e don't claim that another commis
ion just as good cannot be had. We
are not infallible. But we do claim
this is -a good commission. We claim
that we were seeking the highest good
of the entire county in naming it. We
repudiate as utterly' groundless the
thought that we were trying to serve
he interest of any particular com
unity or institution.
(2) Five men were named on the
m3ission from the town of Ne-w
ry. This was not done to benefit
ewberry but to facilitate tihe trans
etion of business by the commission,
as the bill very properly provides
hat a majority of the commission
hall sign every cheek. But for this
act the commission would have been
ore scattered. This phase of the
ubject had careful consideration. It
s possible we made a mist,ake but we
on't think we did. What we want to
sist upon is tihat we were not try
g to serve the interest of Newberry
t tihe expense of the other parts of
he Coutny. O.ther provisions of the
ill show this. If we had desired to
raw a bill in favor of No. One
ownship we would have opposed a
ond issue altogether.
We would have advocated a levy of
mills. with each township receiving
s own money. In this way No. One
ould have gotten enough money to
mild her roads and pay cash for them
n not more than six years. On the
ontra'ry No. One will give orther
ownships not less than r$75,000.00 for
While all this talk is going on just
emember what No. One will do for
ihe other townships under the bill,
d that she pays more than one-third
f the total tax.
Let us say in conclusion that if the
other towvnships ever expect to get
ood roads this is their opportunity.
hey can 't get t:hem any other way.
o to the Auditor and find out just
hat your part'ieular township will
ceive under the one mill levy which
11 be made this year if the bonds
e not voted. Find out for yourself
st where your township will stand.
AN EDITOR'S HOPE.
For our part, we .hope wve are now
adays seeing t:he last of the excessive
ly slim, willowy and severely straight
ine girl. Perhaps as a winter propo
sition, she was not overwhelmingly
acking in attractiveness; and even as'
n early spring product she may have
ier good points. But with the stealthy
approach of the June time we would
that. a change might come o'er t-he
'irit of her dreams, and that she
gsht get her own consent to array
herself in lawns. and organdies. and
-er. things of that sort, you know,
~.litle more along the erstwhile most
turactive and1 bewitching lines.
There is nothing in all this wide
-wide world quite so satisfying to look
uon as a sweet summer girl. S-he is
thing of beauty. and. verily, a joy
forever. She always has been a little
prettier eacih year: in dharm, and
gace. and .winsomeness she has niev
r been known to retrograde. Fathers,
ig brothers and husbands. too, for
at matter--for we have seen sum
er girls with husbands: bless vou,
es. indeed--may storm and fret at
he fprice of t his hat and that fr ek:
a; if it looiks goo)d to t heir eV.es wh'~en
is tinally tashioned and donned.
ey foa mnuch and forgive more.
A summer girl must he plump, and
s, and dimpled' You cannot get
y from tat. Extreme styles were
1~t me:m! P or 1 er. leeks, and boos.
a nd :ranspjarent sleeves, and all t,bat.
Must she sacrittee that to a foolish de
cree that says she should seek to imi
tate nothing on this mundane sphere
so much as a broomstick when it
eomes to the matter of herself adorn
ed for dress -parade, or the quieter
phases of her benign endeavor? She;
is resourceful--oh, well we know it!
She can accomplish mu.ch that man in
his all too poor sartorial philosophy
reeks not of. But she cannot reconcile
those aforesaid peeks and boos, and
all that with a figure sternly held to
Iet anlgle, anid a costume construct
ed only on precise perpendiculars,
horizontals. and so forth! She cannot
get by with tihat sort of thing. and
hold her reputation as a. never-more
lovely creation as the years go by.
BiF modern vessels are as helpless
as older and smaei(r crafts wheil
great gales lash her waters. As long
ago a5 1882, vessel men declared that
ships were getting so large on the
Great Lakes that their chances of
losses or serious disaster were remote.
Bit the big and little, ancient "hook
ers" and the finest and largest of t-he
modern leviatihans all look alike to
the eold, beautiful rock and forest
brimmed inland sea.
It is slow to anger, but its fury
at times is irresistible. The salt wa
ter sailor who makes his first trip
on Lake Superior in calm weather is
prone to sneer. at its dangers, but
once he has ridden out a northwast
ern gale and witnessed and felt the
great shouldering seas, which carry
the twisting motion of the ocean, he
is silenced. Lake Superior is now
called tihe "port of missing men"
with Whitefish Point as "the grave
yard of the lakes."
The Adella Shores is the latest vic
tim of the greatest of the Great
Lakes. She vanished from the surface
with a crew of 15 men. That is all
that is known and perhaps all that
will be known. The other day a pad
dle bearing an inscription "Adella
Shores," was washed ashoire
at Whitefish Point, .indicating that
the ship and its crew are some dis
tance from that point, but further
than that the mystery of the disas
ter is locked in the icy breast of the
mighty lake. A sailor lashed to a
plank or to a spar may drift ashore,
but no man expects that the incidents
surrounding the foundering of the
craft will ever come to ligtht.
There is something exceedingly
tragic in t'he loss of any ship in any
circumstances. but when one goes
