of This Plan Fow the Retterment
of Publi.o Iighways.
The question of road improvement in
the United States seems within the
past year to have resolved itself into
the question of national aid. When
any one is asked to say 4nething. on
the road question, he takes it foi grant
ed that you want to know whether he
thinks the government should help
build the roads. Many leading men
have recently given their indorsement
to this new idea, or rather old idea, for
it .is now nearly a century since Jef
ferson signed the first national aid bill.
Some of these views are interesting. In
a recent speech .ex-Senator Butler of
South Carolink said:
"There is -ample constitutional war
rant for the improvement of the public
roads out of the United States treasu
ry, as large as there is for the Improve
ment of rivers and harbors or for the
support of the agricultural colleges. It
is an appropriation from which we
would all get benefit and to which we
would '. .gtribute a share. The con
stitution of the t,.lYi -confers
upon copgress the right to establish
postofices and poetroads. Every high
way is a post route if the government
chooses to use it. Evon in ' the days of
John C. Calhoun he recommended the
distribution of the surplus among thc
several states, and it was done. I think
the best thing for us to do is to go to
our representatives and senators in
congress and say to them, 'The great
demand of modern times is the im
provement of -the public highways, and
the federal government should con
tribute.' "
Governor' Montague of Virginia Is do
ing everything in his power to secure
state legislation for road improvement,
and he is also in favor of national
aid. He says:
-"We should not, however, overlook
national aid. I believe this in time will
come. The so called constitutional
barrier against national approprIation
must fill to the ground. The national
government has constructed public
highways unopposed by .the strictest
constructionists of the federal consti
tution. Moreover, if the national gov-.
ernment can appropriate money to
build harbors and to irrigate lands of,
the states, how much greater is the
roson and the right for national aid
to public highways, the primal and
abiding factors of transportation, both
local and interstate."
Speaking on the same subject, Gen
eral Nelson A. Miles says:
"The United Sttes government has
appropriated $480,000,000 for rivers
and harbors during the last twenty
two years and only about $8,000,000 for
the improvement of the country roads.
Now it appears to us that it is a fitting
time to draw the attention not only of
the people that are immediately inter
ested, but of your representatives both
in the United States and the state leg
islative bodies, because it is one of the
projects that are bound to contribute to
your welfare and happiness."
General Fitz-Hlugh Lee, referring to
this subject, says:
"If you improve the roads, you begin
at the foundation of prosperity for the
people. The government of the United
States appropriates now a large sum
every year for military purposes. It
appropria tee money for our mechanical
and agricultural colleges. Now, inas
much as good roads are the basis of
prosperity both in country and city,
wihy should not the government appro
priate an adequate sum of money an
nually for road improvement?"
Assistant Secretary of Agriculture
Colonel~ -3. H. Brigham recently ex
pressed himself as favorable to na
tional aid. Among other things he
"I believe the general government
can help in this work of improving tile
highways. I am one of those who be
lieve it is always right for .the strong
arm of the government to be extended
to help her people in every section of
the couintry. The government could
appropriate a certain sum to be supple
muented by appropriations from state
and county and then ask the locality
where the road is to be constructed to
contribute a certain amount and bring
these funds all together. Then it would
not be burdensome upon any one, and
the work would be started here, there
and everywhere, and in a few short
years, withourunduly burdening any
body, without' impoverishing the na
tion or the state, -we would see good
highways extending all over our land,
beautifying the country, enriching the
people and adding to thleir intelligence
and happiness in, many ways."
MAfchinery For R40ad la'serovement.
The tendency of the present age is
toward the use of iachinery wherever
possible, and In the improvenlent of
highways of every kind the use of
ditching and roadnmaking machines and
of heavy road rollers Is of tile first im
portance if economy and efileiency are
to go hand in hand. The use of ptoper
apparatus for the shaping up of the
roadbed and the subseqtuent hardening
of its suirface is of paramont impor
tance, and every stipervisor of public
roads should have at his disposition,
at least during a part of each year, the
machinery above referred to. In con..
uidoring the building of roads in rural
districts the, inatter of low first cost
must always be kept in view. While
this may appear somewhat high on ac
count of the purchase of machinery, if
several townships join it the, purchase
of the required outfit the cost of. eachi
will hardly be fet, land the results ob

nahand'.1 Waldo family, .repre
sented by oh sholm or
New York city.
Prior to the American revolution
the. English Hazzard's were a
prominent family of Bristol, Eng.
Benjamin Hazzard, a scion of this
family, receiving a royal commis
sion from King George II, came
over with a Britisli regiment to
the colonies. He wits the great
grandfather of Mr. J. P. and Capt.
Win. M. Hazzard. At the out
break of the Revolutionary war he
threw up his commission in the
English army and took sides with
the American patriots in the cause
of liberty.
In the meantime the Hazzard's
in England had" waxed wealthy and
heirB apparent and presumtive
were few in' numbei. B-mjamin
Hazzard, on account of his politi
cal afliliations, was disinherited
and his inheritance confiscated by
the government. The property
was at a later date restored to the
remaining heirs, the last of whom
was a Miss Hazzard, who .married
a Scottish nobleman. The union
was without issue and the lady
died without making a will,
The English government subse
quently took charge of the estate,
and efforts were made to diacover
the rightful heirs. It was known
that a member of the family came
to America several generations
back, and advertisements seeking
information as to his descendants,
if any, were inserted in a .number
of American .Aewspapers.
As a result the claim to the es
tate was matde by members of the
family in Georgia aud South Caro
lina, and strong proofs submitted
as to the inheritance being in the
above parties. The matter, how
ever, is still in statu quo in the
English pourts, but steps are now
being taken to hav~e the case adju
dicated and brought to ,a conclus
sion. September next has been
named .as the time for the final
hearing in the case, and it is prob
able that one of the heirs here will
go to England at an early date
carrying incontrovertible pruoof to
the rightfulness of their claim to
the estate.
Mr. J1. P. Hazzard has the family
silverware with the family coat of
arms upon ii, which was brought
to this country by his great-grand
father. He has also in his possess
ion a number of famnily papers
which prove beyond a doubt that
his family are direct descendants of
the Hazzard's of Bristol.
