The Good Roads Association feels
that the welfare and growth of the
county imperatively need the con-
struction at as early a date as possi
ble of a complete system of hard sur
face permanent roads, hard in win
lei as well as in summer—serving
every settled portion of the county.
There is no need to point out the
economic value to the community of
good roads. Every sane person nowa
days admits the enormous import
ance of cood roads to the city dwell
er not less than to the farmer,—for I
produce transported over hard roads
to the city can obviously be sold in
the city at substantially lower prices
than when the condition of the roads
makes the haul difficult or impossible.
:To the farmer hard roads mean mon
:ey in his pocket.
Hard roads through Snohomish
county would attract new settlers and
encourage the opening of new farms
more than any other influence with
in the reach of the present residents
'of the county. These improvements
i will rapidly add to the assessable
valuation of the county and to that
; extent lift the general burden of tax-
I ation off the shoulders of those who
; now pay it all.
The present movement for building
hard roads by bonding the county
originated not with the county offi
cials, but with public-spirited citizens
from all sections of the county. Sev- j
eral mass meetings were held at Ev
erett a month or two ago attended
by delegates from every town and
district in the county at which the
proposition was discussed, and a spe
cial committee of eighteen men, six
from each road district, put in maay
hours of hard study and discussion
of the subject, with the result that a
plan of location of hard roads was
evolved that has met very nearly
The bond issue, if it is supported
by the voters, authorizes the County
Commissioners to sell the bonds in
such portions as they can use to good
advantage each year, and no more.
This means, for instance, that the
first year they will sell perhaps $400,
--000 or $500,000 worth of bonds; the
second year possibly another $500,000,
the third year another $500,000 and
the fourth year a further installment.
It is variously estimated that it will
require from three to five years to
build the system of roads contemplat
ed, and as no bonds will be sold un
til the money to be raised by them is
needed, interest will not begin to ac
crue on the total issue of bonds until
the last of them are issued and the
work is nearing completion.
: In former campaigns for road bonds
j much has been said against their is-
I sue on the ground that taxes would
be raised to an oppressive degree to
carry the bonds. There is no sound
reason to fear such a result in this
j instance. The County Commißsion
' ers have given their written pledge
to reduce the road district levies in
the event the bonds carry from their
present figure of ten mills down to
six, and to cut the road and bridge
I levy from the customary levy of a lit
; tie over three and one-half down to
two and one-half mills. This reduc
tion will aggregate approximately an
' amount equal to the annual bond pay
! ments of principal and interest if the
interest is to be 4V2 per cent. The
, reason the Commissioners can make
! this cut is because the paving of the
roads will cut out the greater part of
| the present annual cost of up-keep
of dirt roads In the belief of the
good roads committee the bonds can
be carried to final payment with no
increase at all of taxes in the road
districts and a very small raise else

The Right to Work
By Ambrose Bierce
What shall a sturdy man do who
has not the price of a meal? Clearly,
he must go to work and earn it. But,
if nope will give him work? Right
here we impose the death penalty for
his failure. We sentence him to
He can escape this punishment in
no way that is lawful. We have had
the foresight to see to that, by laws
against robbery, theft and mendican
cy. Mere vagrancy, too, is a crime;
if without visible means of support
a man may be sent to jail. If, like the
Son of Man, he "hath not where to
lay his head," he will be safer from
the rest of use if he pack it about
with him, remaining awake or sleep
ing afoot. He might sleep in the park
or on a wharf or in some other un
considered place. That would be no
great hardship to society, but it would
do him good, and we have provided
Laws against robbery and theft are
just and necessary; those against
begging are necessary and unjust.
What makes them unjust is that we
do not assure work to those able and
willing to work. To say to a penni
less and hungry man, "You may ask
for employment, but if it is refused
you shall not ask for bread" —that is
a monstrous and shameful tyranny.
There is only one way out of this
moral impasse. Since the state can
not permit the individual to rob or
steal, and will not permit him to beg,
it should provide him with employ
ment; there is no other way to pre
serve his life and his self-respect.
So plain is the duty of society to
the individual that it is no less than
astonishing that it could ever have
been overlooked or questioned when
The employment should not, of
course, carry a wage that would
tempt the recipient to withdraw him
self from private industries, but it
should be sufficient to keep the wolf
outside his door—to tide him over
the period of his sharpest need.
This is not an anarchistic proposal;
no proposal can be that if it aims to
move an imperative compulsion to
lawlessness. If it is Socialistic, then
Socialism may claim the glory of ad
vocating an indisputable reform —the
adding to the Ten Thousand Com
mandments thundered from the Po
litical Sinai one with a negative that
is not prohibitive, but benevolent, car
rying not a threat, but a promise—

Other counties and other states are
■ stirring themselves to build paved
roads. Snohomish county must not
|be relegated to the backwoods. This
I movement Is not, as some persons
have thoughtlessly charged, merely
to afford joy rides to automobile own
: ers. The age of the automobile in
I its various forms is here and here to
stay. Transportation by horse is now
almost replaced by machines just as
i the ox team was replaced by horses.
The auto stage is destined to furnish
every farmer on a main highway the
equivalent of a street car passing his
own gate. The economy in haul of
produce, merchandise, and passengers
by auto-driven vehicles is beyond all
reckoning. The sooner Snohomish
county gets into shape to take ad
vantage of modern methods of doing
business the quicker it will inure to
the prosperity, comfort, happiness and
thrift of all communities and all
classes of people in the county.
Even by beginning now it will take
perhaps five years to get the hard
1 roads. Why wait?
The bonding plan includes no "scen
ic" roads, no ornamental highways,
!no bridges, not one mile that does not
serve the everyday business, family
and school needs of the populated sec
tions not a mile that will not directly
enhance the growth and prosperity of
the entire popnlation of the county.
The experience of Snohomish coun
ty has proved what other communi
ties all over the United States have
found to be true: that graveled and
macadam roads are of very short life
under automobile use. A graveled
surface on well-traveled roads now
has to be rebuilt every two or three
years. Graveling is at the best a very
Some citizens have the impression
that the. Pacific Highway, being class
ed by the legislature as a public high
way, would be eventually paved by
th* state anyway, and that therefore
to pave it by county funds would be
needlessly doing the state's work.
This is not so. The State Highway
Commlsslen has recently announced
that the state will not do any paving
on any of the public highways.

CITY PAYS LOW WAGES
TOPEKA, Kan. —Over one-half of
the 298 employes of this city are re
eeivine either a bare living wage,
which allows them to lay up nothing
for emergencies, or they are getting
less than a living wage, declares the
Topeka Daily Capital. One hundred
and twenty-three employes receive
less than $64.75 a month, "which is
$10.25 less than a living wage."
The average wage, including all the
officials who receive salaries of $100
a month or over, is $70.52, which is
$4.48 less than a living wage.
"Many investigations have been
made of living conditions of labor
ers," says the Daily Capital, "and they
have revealed that $900 a year is the
least a family can live comfortably
and protect itself against emergen
cies. That wage means $75 a month."

an argument against them, insofar
as their usefulness from a working

the very last word in the way of
graft and exploitation. At best they

"Their business is chiefly done with
the poorest class of laboring men,
whom they make pay heavily for the
privilege of getting a Job to keep
body and soul together."

Work in the Future
Thomas A. Edison
Not individualism, but social labor
will dominate the future; you can't
have individual machines and every
man working by himself. Industry
will constantly become more social
and interdependent. There will be
no manual labor in the factories of
the future. The men in them will be
merely superintendents watching the
machinery to see that it works right.
The workday, I believe, will be eight
hours. Every man needs that much
work to keep him out of mischief to
keep him happy. But it will be work
with the brain, something that men
will be interested in and done in
wholesome, pleasant surroundings.
Less and less man will be used as an
engine, or as a horse, and his brain
will be employed to benefit himself
and his fellows.
WHY WE NEED AN ARMY
Ex-President Taft it frank, to say
the least. Speaking at Chicago, he
plainly told why a standing army is
wanted, as follows:
"We need an army for its moral in
fluence, if for nothing else. In a na
tion of 100,000,000 there are liable to
be riots, mobs and insurrections
which cannot be regulated except by
the presence of an army."
Like a true Bourbon, Mr. Taft has
learned nothing, not even that with
economic wrongs removed there
would be no danger of riots, mobs, or
insurrections. Not even that it is bet
ter to remove the cause of popular
discontent than to suppress it with
armed force. Ldke a true Bourbon
he haa forgotten nothing. He remem
bers that exercise of predatory pow
er by privileged interests breeds dis
order. Impervious to all suggestions
of substituting justice for injustice,
Mr. Taft. innocently betrays the real
cause for which armies are every
where maintained—S. D. In The
