VAST SYSTEM OF
All Hut Six States to bo Connected
With National Capital?South Caro
A gigantic syBteni of seven great
national highways radiating from
Washington to all sections of the
United States Is proposed In a bill In
troduced In the senate by Senator Cul
loia, of Illinois, at the request of form
er Representative J. Floyd King, of
Louisiana. Immediately after the In
troduction of tbo bill Gon. King Inau
gurated a movement to further the
project. The bill was referred to the
committet? on posloffices and post
roads, of wbleb Senator Dourno is
It the project is successful, tho Dis
trict will bocome the center of a wheel
of roads passing through practically
every State in the Union. Hack of the
project are a number of prominent
members of Congress and business
men who are preparing to push the
bill to passage as quickly as possible.
Opposition Is expected from some
quarters, hut Oon King announce!1,
last night that he is confident of over
Included In the system proposed to
the Senate by Senator Cullom are
many of the projects for great roads
'1 ready launched at different times.
The roadway from .Montreal, Can
ada, to Miami. Fla., tho Lincoln mem
orial road from Washington to Gettys
burg, recently indorsed by Speaker
Champ Clark, of the House, are among
tho projects Included In the scheme
Would Cost $148,000,000.
The seven great national roads pro
vided for in the plan all have; one
terminus in Washington. The other
extremities proposed are Portland,
Me.; Buffalo, N. Y.; Seattle. Wash.;
San Francisco, CnL; San Diego, Cal.;
Austin, Tex.; and Miami. Fla. It is
proposed that they be called, respect
ively, the Washington national high
way, the Lincoln national highway, the
Jefferson national highway, the Grant
national highway, tho Monroe national
highway, and the Lee national high
As estimated by Gen. King the sev
en proposed highways would not px
coed n combined length of 12,000
miles, which at the estimate of $12,000
ii mile, would bring the cost of the
system up to the figure of $14S,000,000.
It is proposed that this money lie rais
ed by tho issue of bonds, as in the case
of the Panama Canal. After the roads
have he.>n built, it is proposed lo pay
their cost of maintenance by the col
lection of tolls.
The bill introduced by Senator Cul
lom provides mainly for the ap
pointment of a commission, to be
known as the national interstate high
ways and good roads commission, to
determine the location and cost of the
proposed seven highways. An imme
diate expenditure of $2.000.000 is pro
vided for the preparation of maps, the
making of surveys, and other work In
cidental to the work of actually be
ginning the construction of the great

AUTO FATALITIES INCREASE.
Col. Kohn Suggest* MSafe and Sane"]
Campaign in This State.
Columbia, August 15.?A day does
not pass that does not give occa
sion for a funeral notice as a result of
an automobile accident. The New York
papers record several accidents a day.
With the Increasing ubc of automo
biles in this State it may bo a good
Idea to have an early start in a "safe
and sane" campaign. In New York
city tho pedestrian Is given a chanco
for his life?that's about all.
There Is no need for legislation, as
there is now nmplc law on the hooks.
All that is wanted is an enforcement
of the existing laws. Every city and
town has a law against speeding and,
wlille it may not be known, there Is a
State law against fast driving.
In effect the main features of the
present law read:
Section 591. "No person shall oper
ate a motor vehicle on a public high
way at a rate of speed greater than
is reasonable and proper at the time,
and place, having regard to the traf
fic and use of the highway and its con
dition, or so as to endanger life, limb
or property of any person, or in any
event at a greater rate Iran fifteen
miles an hour, subject, however to the
other provisions of Sections .V.>2 to
Section f>92: "Upon approaching a
crossing of intersecting public high
ways, or a bridge of a sharp curve, or
a steep descent, and also traversing
such crossing, bridge, curve or de
scent, a person operating a motor
vehicle shall have it under control,
and operate it at the rate of speed no
greater than six miles an hour, and
in no event greater than is reasonable
and proper, having regard to the traf
fic then on such highway and the safe
ty of the public."
Other sections relate to cars stop
ping upon signal. The automobile
Clubs and organizations cannot take
up and encourage anything that will
do the automlbllists as much good as
to discourage speeding and fast driv
ing. Reckless driving is not general
among automobil ist S, but the many
will suffer for the few if the "safe and
sane" idea is not impressed.
At the recent term of the Court in
Spartanburg the grand jury in Us pre
sentment to .liu'.ge Watts said:
"We desire to call the attention of
the owners and drivers of automobiles
and otiier motor driven machines to
the law regulating their operation on
the public roads. In no case are they
allowed to run more than fifteen miles
an hour, and on curves, bridges, etc.,
the rate of speed is limited to six'
miles an hour. We believe many vio
lations of the law are from thought-j
lessness, but the danger of accidents
Is very great, and wo call upon all
officers if the law to enforce same in
tho Interest of the public, safety.
"It has also been called to our at-1
tentlon that a great many automo
biles and motorcycles are being op
erated Is this county without having
such motor registered In accordance
with the law, and by not having such
number placed on tho rear of said ma
chine in a conspicuous place, with
the name of the county In which said
motor vehicle Is registered."
These are the beginnings of damage
suts and extreme legislation!
Some months ago there was in Co
lumbia a break-neck automobile race.
A flue young man from Greenwood |
was Injured In the preliminary spin.
He Is now dead as a result of the ac
cident by which his back was Injured.
It may be locking the door after
the horse is out, but some one will,
no doubt, propose a statute, at the
next session of the General Assembly
outlawing speed and endurance con
tests with automobiles. Henj. Briscoe
and other leading automobilists argue
that nothing is now to be gained by
such contests and that they should be
AutomobilistS generally should sup
press the speed maniac and it is best
for it to be done by those Interested in
tho new motor machines.--August |
