per Hudson valley, the'Mohnwk valley j
^ and the northern arc! western parts j(
of New York State all day today, j j

ceased in many districts, only to be j *

the last four days. I:
Four deaths were caused in this }'
city by the storm and the total fatali- !'
ties due to the cold spell and stormy j1
conditions numbered 17 tonight. I;t
While the snowfall in the metropolis j #
was on'y 10 inches, at other points !
phenomenal falls for those sections ! ^
were reported, and snow ranging from '
HLl24 to 36 inches in depth. Reports ,
tcnight from points near Albany said :
hfc further decided drop in 1empera-i
Hire had taken place and that a biting !
Bind, reaching in some places a veloc y
of 70 miles an hour, was adding ,]
PPV the discomfort and suffering.
Conditions in New Jersey were al- j'
. most as bad. thor-gh the fall of enow? iJ
was not us heavy tlfre, ranging from
eight, to 12 inches. Only one train was !'

^P^he Seabright N. J.,\ peninsula, and ;.
placed it unaer iwo ieet 01 water, ,
^ causing the population to seek safety ,
a-n the mainland. Conditions in Sea- j j
bright, it was said, were worse for .
a time than in January, when many . j
buildings were demolished. Today ,
part of the Eeach club building was j
torn down bv the waves and three cot- .

v 'I HE WAY TO GOOD ROADS. *
rv ' t> * y ? t> i> <$> - v
In a recent issue ci' Collier's, Ewing
Galloway tells the singulariy interest.ng
story of how Massachusetts >.as
evolved, and is still developing, its
iamous system of highways. The
ncvement and methods he depicts are
;ruly described as "a big chapter in
he country's vital progress," and they
tre rich in suggestion to eve:y State
;hat is concerned with the deeply important
problem of good roads.
Massachusetts is credited with the
lighest percentage of improved roads
)f any State in the Union and, in
.iropo* tion to its area is said to have
?one furthest in highway construction.
tVhilp pxnpi'ditnres in this work
im:unt to millions of dollars, it is
iistinguished also for economy in the
milding and maintenance of the
roads; every dol'ar appropriated
wrings due results.
Such an example is well wor h
studying, particularv in the South
ivhere good-roads enthusiasm is now
more widespread and inter.se than in
my other" part of the Union and where,
in the next ten years, great sums of
money will be spent frr highway ex:ension
and improvemert. What is
:he basis of Massachusetts' distinctive
success? In t>.e first place, says Mr.
3-alloway. quoting t':e chairman of the
State highway commission, there is a
throughly awakened public opinion:
'the people want good roads and are
willing to pay a reasonable price for
Lno:n." Furthermore, successive legislatures
have boon responsive to public
wishes and needs in this regard and,
beside grafting liberal appropriations,
have enacted well consideded laws.
Most important, perhaps, is the fact
20 years ago Massachusetts established
a State highway c-ommission, thus providing
"a centra! aut-ority to collect
statistics and other information about
roads, and to furnish genera! engineering
advice to various authorities in
nf hiffhwitv wnrlr "
These ar*-1 th**ee determining factors
ir the Bay State's roadway devoloprrent.
So far as public opinion goes,
Georgia compares most favorably;
there is no margin for doubt that the
majortiy of cur people heartily appreciate
the worth of good roads and
"are wi'Iing to pay a reasonable price
far them." 0:ir legislature contributed
i vast doa! to the good roads cause
ivhen it abolished t'_e leasing of convict?
t~ private interest and placed the
prisoners a: the disposal of the counfcr
public highways. It should be
loted, however, that this is as far as the
^fa'e aroverir^ort has gone toward encouraging
highway devolopment. The
:ask of planning roads, of linking them
intD strong, useful chains, of building
t':era scientifically and maintaining
em economically has been left en
:irely to the individual counties. And
[i!Ft there Hps the peculiar weakness
Georgia's method as compared with
The pupose of the Cvi&ssacnusetts
highway commission is not to interfere
wi:h local authorities and communities
but to assist them and increase
the value of their individual
efforts by bringing them all into cooperative
action for the development
a State-wide system cf good roads,
rhe highways, we are lold. are divided
iLto three classes
"State roads, county roads and city
)r town ways. City governments
provide money for the improvemneus
)r repairs in their jurisdictions, and'
:he small places appropriate funds at
own meetings. County commissioners
lot only look after county roads, but
ilso have authority to direct work
>n highways in cities or towcs.
"The State highway commission may
ay out as a State road any new or
jxisting way in any city or town upon
petition of the local government. When
i road is so laid out the commission
issumes full jurisdiction over it."
The noteworthy feature of this plan
.-i its Drovision for a central authority !
thereby the separate communities
nay be united in roadway undertakings
and a well connected system of
oads thus built up. Some of its deails
would doubtless be unsuited to
Georgia, where conditions are disinctly
different from those in Massa- !
ihusetts; but the principle itself is |
idmirable for any State.
"The commission keeps trained men
>n every job of work," Mr. Galloway's
itory continues. "There are four div- (
sion engineers, each of them having a
ixed territory for which he is respon-'
lible. There is a large staff of men at
he main office in Boston, but most of j
heir work is done indoors. Under
"he division eng^eers there are assistants
and resid'int engineers, who
ire assigned to pa:?icular pieces of.
work. The commission employs about ?
">0 engineers regularly, and during the
busy season it has from 7."> to 100.
hvery piece of w.irk is sized up before
the contract is awarded. Estimates
of large jobs are made at the main
office; and it is known just about
what a fori tractor's nr fits are soing
to be before bids are advertised for.
The division engineers inspect all
work under their jurisdiction or have
it inspected by trustworthy assistants.
: Tne peop'e get a fair return for practically
every dollar that is speot."
To this businesslike system, is due
the high quality of Massachusetts
roads. Whatever it may cost taxp
vers to maintain the commission a.id
the corps of competent engineers is
more than repaid in the money saved
through good management and efficient
work. A road built by scientific
methods and carefully inspected
every detail is a dependable public
investment. Ten thousand dollars
thus spent will yield larger and more
lasting returns than a 100,000 loosely
it is gratifying to kn:w that the
Friso:. Commission of Georgia has
recently inaugurated a plan of State
aid and supervision for county roads.
It has appointed a State road inspector,
a competent engineer, waose service
and advice are free to every
c.unty that asks for them. Many re1

and it is likely that before summer
is well under way, the need of an additional
inspector will be urgent. This
is a hopeful beginning 101* the establishment
of a well organized system
of Siate highway supervision in
Georgia. It mariis generous consideiation

Secretary Bryan today praised the

t-hey were doing in training boys in J
