To the Voters ot Caledonia County:
As a candidate for County Senator asking- your support in th
approaching- primary you are rightfully entitled to know how I stati
on the question, that are liable to come before the next session o
the legi .lature in one form or another.
1. T am heartily in favor of woman suffrage. As a member o
the Hoihc in 1!U! 1 supported and voted for the eo,ual suffrage bil
that was passed by the legislature but vetoed by the Governor. I
elected to represent the county in the General Assembly of 11)21
shall favor the ratification of the equal suffrage amendment of th
Conslitu'ion of the United States. I regret that the appeals of th
women of Vermont for a special session to consider earlier ratilica
tion have been denied by the Governor, who alone has the power ti
is.- ne such a call.
2. While tl-.e liquor question has ceased to be a real issue in statt
politics, 1 realize there are those who desire to know how candidate;
stand o:i this question. I take pride in the fact that I am on recort
ns voting' for the She-paid Amendment. No thoughtful person cai
now doubt the wisdom of this amendment. It has emptied the jaili
and workhouses, greatly reduced crime and poverty, and has brough
happiness, and prosperity to a multitude of homes that formerl;
knew only orrow and want. The Federal enforcement act, knowi
as the Volstead Act,, is a mattir beyond state control. It very like
ly has imperfections that will be collected by Congress in due tiniiO
What tattttc of its kind in its original form has ever been foun
ts, be ii-rfee much le.-s to-Tneetf the srpprornl of those "who feel thi
halter dr;ivV" i. L it. be amended in the light of experience aftc
a fair triad with a view to the honest enforcement of the constitu
lional amendment. Any other course would be futile, and one il
public position who would counsel otherwise would be unworthy o
the confidence of his fellows.
:!. Ar.iong the important questions co come before the next ses
f' '.-:. of the legislature is the matter of highways. Those who an
familiar with our road problem realize that our present patch-worl
system of constructing and maintaining the main lines of highways i:
not all that is to be desired. The present system does not make fo
economy and cdicieacy, and leaves here and there stretches of poo
road that practically spoil many highways for through- traffic
The slrcrr-lh of a chain is its weakest link. So it is with roads tha
are required for haulilig heavy loads . To secure the best results th
main roads . -hould be taken over by the state ami become state road
.'u fact -is well as in name. By relieving the towns from the buidel
of caring for. the through lines of travel, in which the whole stat
has an interest, they can give their whole attention to the up-kce;
of the town roads in which (lie people of the locality are chief!;
interested, an improvement that is sadly needed in a majority of th
towns, but now impossible without an excessive burden of taxes
Under state control machinery could bo provided to take the plac
of the more expensive and slower method of work by hand and wit'
teams. Trucks, tractors and stone crushers would solve the difficul
ties of towns without suitable gravel banks near at hand.
Some nay ask how the state can do this without bonding. I ar
not in favor of an extensive building- of expensive trunk lines sue:
as some oi the advocate;- of a bond issue favor. For the present, a
least. I would continue the policy of building substantial grave
roads, except where soil or traffic conditions make a more expensiv
construction necessary, paid for as they arc built. Such loads pro
perly cared for would reasonably meet the requirements of th
state. If the money derived from the state highway tax, the autc
mobile fund, and Federal aid was expended by the state upon th-.-elected
higiiways, proper attention being given to repairs, and th
balance of the fund expended each year where it was most ncedec
we would soon have the state loads in proper shape.
1. The automobile tax law should be revised to increase the in
come of ihe state from that source and to make a more just distribu
lion of the burden. Our antiquated method of ...xing- automobiles o,
the basis of theoretical (not actual) power is manifestly unjust an
irrational. Why should a small and light car, like (lie Ford, pay ;
larger road tax than a larger and heavier car, like the Studebakerfo
instance? To be equitable, the automobile tax as a road tax shouli
be proportionate to the wear to which the particular type of vehicle
whether car or truck, subjects the highway. It is a matter of com
mon knowledge that the heavy and powerful, and so more speedy ca
takes much more out of a road than the lighter car. They should h
taxed accordingly. For the same reason the amount of the road la
should not be governed by the age of the car, but a reasonable rat
should be ii&cd, the same for the first and each succeeding year.
If motor vehicles are to continue to be exempted from loca
taxation, which many of the states do not do, the automobile ta;
should consist of two elements, a certain graduated road ta:
measured by the weight and actual power of the car, and an addi
tional sum depending- upon the value of the car. There is sligh
justice in the owner of a Ford being required to pay as much, if no
more, for the benefit of good roads as his more fortunate ncighbo;
who enjoys the luxury of a Packard or a Picrce-Arrow. Automobili
owners should not complain at paying for the benefit of the high
ways at lca.t as much as they would be required to pay if their can
were taxed as personal property. A little figuring will show thai
many are now paying less than half of what they should pay on
that ba. is. With the automobile tax properly adjusted, the highway
fund would exceed .31,000,11(10 per year, which properly cxpendeo
would soon give us the good roads that all so much desire.
If nominated and elected, 1 hope any voter will feel free to
come to me with any legislation that he or she thinks is for the
best interest of Ihe cwunty or state, and the same will receive my
