Programs In the Counties
Should Be Decided
Co-operation Is Necessary to
Obtain The Best Possible
Nearly twice as much money
available now lor Improvement of
county and town roads as is pro
vided regularly for use on the trunk
highways in Minnesota, Charles M.
Babcock, state highway commission
er, this week urged early good roads
conventions in all counties of the
state at which county commission
ers, town supervisors and tne coun-
ty highway engineers can agree on
a definite program of co-operation to
get tne biggest possible results lor
county-town road expenditures.
“Blue Earth county can secure a
complete system of good local roads
In the shortest time and with the
least expense,” said Mr. Babcock,
“by adopting a definite plan ot sys
tematic improveimeni covering sev
eral years and then pooling- town
with county funds to carry It out
under modern road-building meth
ods, with the right equipment and so
lorth. Funds for local road purpos
es—exclusive of trunk highways—,
in Blue Earth county last year were
about $350,000 'and the importance
of prompt action is obvious. Ren
ville, Carlton and some other coun
ties already are working with suc
cess in this direction but 1 believe
that good roads conventions in these
counties will accomplish much as in
all counties. The plan will end
patchwork road development and the
public will gam in ever| way.
Consider Road N’ Als
“County and town road authori
ties and the engineers can consider
at these meetings the needs on ev
ery county and town road and make
provision tor them in the longer
term program. Township lines
should be ignored, just as the state
disregards county, lines on trunk
route plans. Counties will assist
the towns as the state department
advises- and works with me coun
ties on state aid and other import
ant undertakings. The town iunds
may be pooled with those ot the
county and used under the direct io a
of the engineer. - .Heavier machinery
and better methods can be employed
generally to get bigger results at
less cost, and farmers can be given
more jobs than in the past.
“Public road officials are aJI work
ing to get the best results now, and,
1 am confident, will co-operate to
adopt the new plan and make it
yield maximum results. The fault
has been with the old-time metho-is,
not with the efforts ot our present
local road autbrities." *
View of John H. Mullen
John H. Mullen, deputy commis-
sioner and chief highway engineer,
supported the co-operation proposal
with official figures showing the
large funds now provided tor road
work in Minnesota.
Current funds last year in Min
nesota totalled >18,790,U00 for local
roads and ’>8,690,000 for state trunk
highways, Mr. Mullen said, and tl\fc
greater local funds prove that the
to-called Babcock plan is mainly a
farmers’ road plan.
Taxes brought >10,843.682 of
county and >6,862,560 of township
funds and >2,084,000 of state aid tor
local road purposes, besides >1,308,-
794 of city and village street an*
road funds outside of SL Paul, Min
neapolis and Duluth.
Regular State Funds
Regular state trunk funds were
up of motor vehicle taxes and
>2340,000 of federal aid. Consider
able bond money was used last year,
but laws under which it was voted
are no longer in effect, and it in
cluded the trunk fund total still
would be smaller than that avail
able for the local roads. The local
road mileage is the greater, it was
explained, but that is fairly offset
by the higher cost of improvements
apd maintenance necessary cn the
trunk system.
With the liberal funds provide!,
Mr. Mulen added, county engineers
will carry out the programs agreed
upon by county commissioners and
town supervisors in systematic plans
and greater efficiency and economy
will follow to Rive the maximum ot
good results. '

Upon the fate of the Briand gov

on the Anglo-French agieement, has,
if anything, increased the irritation
of M. Briand’s opponents, aqd the

Executions At Is-Sur.Title.
[Associated Press Dispatch.]
Washington, D. C., January 12. —
Repeated denial that more than two
military executions occurred at ls-
Sur-Tille, France during the Ameri
can occupation of that town as a mili
tary center, was entered today before
' the senate committee investigating
1 charges that American- soldiers had
I been hanged without trial.
Former officers’who had served at
| Is-Sur-Tille in various capacities flat
|ly contradicted testimony given by
soldier witnesses, who had appeared
at earlier sessions of the committee,
declaring without exception that had
other executions occurred, they would
' certainly have been informed as a
matter of routine official business.
Described Two Hangings.
Colonel Samuel V. Ham. who was in
command of the post from March to
July. 1919, described to the, commit
tee the two executions which he said
had been carried out after formal
sentence by court martial for partic-j
ularly heinous crimes. • ■
The military police were directed
i "to throw a cordon sround the scaf
fold,” he said, and the mavor and
town authorities were asked to at
tend. Colonel Ham added, however,

in was the mandate from the high

was net present at the trial."
The second soldier, a white man,

Btod. There were 20,000 men at Campj
at the time and by Colonel Ham’s di
rection, the cause of each hanging
was publicly stated from the scaffold
as a warning that there must be law
and order.
No Other Executions.
"The man hanged was convicted of
rape of a nine-year old girl,” said
Colonel Ham. “There were no other
Ringings, no lynchings, at Is-Sur-TU
le, while I was there.
\ Asked about the testimony of for
mer soldiers, that men in the Ameri
can army were tried by French court
martial, Colonel Ham speaking with
great emphasis, declared: "That is
not possible."
The hearing was adjoined until
next Tuesday.
Senator Willis, after presenting his
resolution stated that he had received
today thirty-six betters, all from pu
pils of a sixth grade school, all urging

Watters Blames Politics.
"My boy, it’s politics, it’s politics,”
said Mr. Watters. “That is what
brought me to jail and I know who is
back of this business.*’ Asked who
was responsible for his plight, Mr.
Watters answered, "Beach. Yes, sir,
Mayor Beach. You know anything is
apt to happen in politics and that is
all this is.
“Why there is an aiderman, Chris
Steiner, living right across the street
from me who "hasn’t got an inside
toilet and you don’t see them arrest
ing him, do you.” On the interview
er’s disclaimer that such an action
had been observed, he continued.
“The Free Press won’t publish the
facts as they are, but I’ll tell the peo
ple." "Some of these days you'll h
me telling ’em from the street cor
ners." "
The prisoner explained at length
that he was In jail at this time be
cause his counsel had neglected him.
On his first call to his attorney he
prefaced his remarks with "What the
n- are you doing about this case
against me?”
Eats With Evident Relish
,at noon today Mr. Waiters was
served the regular prisoner’s fare
and he ate with evident relish. The
menu for his first meal in jail consist
ed of spaghetti, rice with sugar and
milk, bread and maple syrup and hot
tea. There was no distinction made
between the latest arrival and the
more seasoned prisoners.
Following the meal, each prisoner
washes his own dishes and places
them where they will be available .or
the kitchen force at the time for the
evening meal. - Dishes for the prison -
oblong in shape and a cup. Eating
is done with a spoon.
The former mayor made no state
*ment as to his opinion on these reg
ulations but offered no protest and
Mrs. Oaten said this afternoon tliat
he is a model prisoner.
It is reported that a friend sent
the former city executive a choice
cigar, which he accepted with thanks.
“That’s all there are to it,” remarked
Watters as he puffed away apparent
ly as unconcerned and at peace
the world.
Bond Is Prepared
This afternoon Attorney Regan pre
pared a bond for >IOO which was de
posited with the municipal court This
released Mr. Watters from durance.
The case will be appealed to the state
supreme court. Attorney Regan in
formed The Free Press that he under
stood Mr. Watters "was to have thirty
more days of grace, making sixty days
in all. “The jailing of Watters was a
great surprise to me,” remarked Mr.
Regan. "1 was hardly looking for such
drastic action.”
Shortly before three o’clock Watters
was back on the job at the People’s
Ice company plant undaunted, irre
pressible as ever, and determined to
fight it out if It "took all winter.”
Said Mr. Regan: "At the time Mr.
Watters was sentenced by Judge Goff,
the judge suspended the sentence for
thirty days in which time Mr. Watters

hsked for a%tay of execution of thir

stay expired on the 12th day of Janu- I
