-PLANS FOR ROADS
URGED BY EXPERT Programs In the Counties Should Be Decided BABCOCK GAVE OPINION Co-operation Is Necessary to Obtain The Best Possible Results Nearly twice as much money available now lor Improvement of county and town roads as is pro vided regularly tor 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 t 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 <ounty-tx>wn road expenditures. “Blue Earth county can secure a complete system ot good local roads in the shortest time and with the least expense,” said Mr. Babcock, “by adopting a definite plan ot sys teiiiat&c improveoueni 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 forth. Funds for local road purpos es—exclusive ol 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 i 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 gain in every way. Consider Road Needs “County apd town road authori ties and the engineers can consider at these meetings the needs on ev ery county’ and town road and make provision for 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 the coun ties on state aid and other import ant undertakings. The town tunds may be pooled with those of the' county and used under the direction of the engineer - .Heavier machinery I 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 all work ing to get the best results now, and, I am confident, will co-operate to adopt the new plan and make it yield maximum results. The fault has been with the old-time methods, not with the efforts of our present local road autbrities." 1 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 for road work in Minnesota. Current funds last year in Min nesota totalled $18,790,000 for local roads and ’58,690,000 for state trunk highways, Mr. Mullen said, and the greater local funds prove that the fO-called Babcock plan is mainly a farmers’ road plan. Taxes brought $10,843J82 of county and 16,862,560 of township funds and $2,084,000 of state aid for local road purposes, besides $1,30.3,- 794 of city and village street anff road funds outside of St. Paul, Min neapolis and Duluth. Regular State Funds Regular state trunk funds were made 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 if 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 provided, 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 xwill follow to give the maximum of good results. •* Minnesota Lake, January 10. —Miss Agnes Langan returned from Manka to Thursday evening after spending the forepart of the week visiting at the Hruska home.

C., became ill while on a visit to Duluth, and January 2 he was oper ated on here for appendicitis, after the operation had been postponed two days because of his _ weakened heart. This heart ailment made his con oition precarious, and for several days he was reported “critically ill,’’ qntil last Sunday, when hospital at taches renorted a marked improve ment in his condition.

I am bringing you what you have been demanding for three years, and it is up to you to say whether you want it or not.” Premier Briand, in the course of his speech, said the United States had agreed to participate in the Genoa con ference. "As far as I am concerned," he con tinued “I am merely making these ex planations to you and do not your approval or refusal. Here is France's security. Take it or leave it.” The premier next turned to the sub ject of the Genoa conference. "It is inadmissible,’ he said, "that France should be absent from this con ference, which is purely financial and economic especially when such a pow erful financial and economic as the United States, without whose co operation, work is impossible, has agreed to participate.” “Do you wish France not to be rep-, resented there,”, he asked. “If so say so. I for my part, wish France to take part” Unrest Crisis Weakens France. Upon the fate of the Briand gov ernment today rests not only the fu ture policy of France, but perhaps Europe itself, it is believed here. French opinion, both that opposed to M. Briand, and that favoring him, is unanimous that, jn the words of Le Journal, “the crisis of unrest which weakens the positions of France both with her allies and her former ene mies must be ended. ’ The memorandum made public yes terday outlining the British viewpoint on the Anglo-French agieement, has, if anything, increased the irritation of M. Briand’s opponents, and the newspaper L’Eclair, which untik-re cently was the principal supporter of Briand among the Paris press has now become his most vociferous critic. ' According to some of the morning newspapers, President Millerand shared the uneasiness displayed bv the parliamentary commission regard ing the course of the negotiations at Cannes and telegraphed personally to Premier Briand to that effect. Rathenau Before Commission. Cannes, France, January 12. —Dr. Walter Rathenau, head of the German delegation, was before the reparations commission for three hours last night to explain Germany’s request for post ponement of reparations payments. He made no new offer on behalf of his governr e”- general conditions previously made known and protesting the good faith of his government On leaving the cabinet meeting Pre- MANKATO FREE PRESS I mier Briand, replying to inquiries from the reporters, said he had in formed his colleagues not of what was being said in Cannes, around the con ference, but of what had been done at the conference, which he would ex plain in the chamber this afternoon. Entire Cabinet Resign* Premier Brland said the reparat ions commission had agreed to grant a moratorium for Germany on her reparations payments. Premier Briand submitted his res ignation to President Millerand at the Elysee palace after making a lengthy statement before the Cham ber of Deputies, justifying his atti tude at the Cannes conference. M. Brand’s intention to resign was announced to the chamber at the close of his hour’s speech. The an nouncement came as an entire sur prise as he had apparently won the sympathy of the chamber. •His col leagues of the cabinet were filled with amazement at his sudden de termination. M. Briand, after making his an nouncement left the chamber alone. The members of the cabinet.followed as soon as they had recovered from their surprise. Groups of deputies and government officials speedily gathered in excited discussions of the seriousness of the situation, seeking a way out of the difficulty The entire French cabinet went out of office vhith Premier Briand. The resignation of' Premier Briand was accented hv President Millerand. Millerland Accepts Resignations. The contest in the cabinet meeting centered upon the advisability of the premier going between the chamber. Premier Briand himself, however, favored the plan to have him appear before the chamber. President Millerand today accepted the resignation of Premier Briand and his entire cabinet and Indicated he would not ask any one to form a new ministry before tomorrow. Minister of War Barthou .and for mer President Poincaire were men tioned prominently in parliamentary ' lobbies as likely candidates for the task of forming a new government. President Millerand. according to I custom, summoned M. Bourguls ana ‘M. Peret, president of senate and chamber of deputies, respectively, for , a coiuerence on the situation. But 'M. Peret was delayed by the neces - sity of the chamber’s reconvening to adopt its program without the pres ence of a government. The Gerau delegation, head by Dr. I Walter Ralhenau, was received by ' the allied supreme council this morn ing, the reparations commission hav ing reported that lastnight's confer ence with the Germans had been without.-result. Regret Briand’* Action Secretary Hughes announced offici ally shortly after?noon today, the fact of Premier resignation to the beads of several of the armament delegation who were in conference with him at the time. The news was received with expressions, of dismay. “It is a very grave event,”’ said the head of one delegation. There was no immediate comment made for publication by those parti cipating In the conference who in cluded Arthur J. Balfour, of the Brit ish delegation; Senator Schanzer of the Italian group, Baron Kato of the Japanese, and M. Sarraut of the .French. Briand To Speak This Afternoon.

The cabinet meeting was concluded at one o’clock after a two hour ses sion. The premier,' it was indicated,- had explained the situation with the result of removing such doubts as his colleagues may have had oeer the situation. M. Briand upon his arrival went di rectly to the foreign office and tnence to the Elysee Palace, where he had a long conference with President Miller and. Washington Officials Shocked - Washington D. C., January 12. The resignation of Aristide Briand as premier of France' was received with almost bombshell effect in arms conference circles, the action being considered likely to have a great ef fect in arms conference circles,’ the ! action being considered likely -to have a great effect on decisions al ready reached or about to be reached. I The belief also was expected in con- I ference circles that the overturn of ..the Briand ministry would greatly af fect the Genoa econorjic conference in which American parcicipation had been invited and also on the present conversations at Cannes. Conference officials declared that as customary during cabinet crisis in France, the resigning cabinet would remain in power for continuing the administrative work for the govern ment and in the same way M. Sarraut would remain in Washington and would continue to attend the work of the conference but would not feel entitled to make 7 any definite decis j lons or to pledge « the action of France on any question until the new | cabinet is appointed.

Execution* At l*-Sur-Tille. [Associated Press Dispatch.] Washington, D. C., January 12. — Repeated denial that more than two military executions occurred at Is- Sur-Tille, France during the Ameri can occupation of that town as a mili tary center, was entered today before 1 the senate committee investigating 1 charges that American' soldiers had j been hanged without trial. Former officers’who had served at I 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 Hanging*. 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 parties ularly heinous crimes. • \ The military police were directed i “to throw a cordon around the scaf fold,” he said, and the v mavor and town atithorltles were asked to at tend. Colonel Ham added, however, that nearly all the French worn m and • - r • t children In the neighborhood were present. Senator Watson, democrat, Georgia, questioned the officer regarding the sentence of the first man .hanged, a negro, at Js-Sur-Title for murder and rape. "The only thing I was concerned In was the mandate from the high command/* said Colonel Ham. "I was not present at the trial.*' The second soldier, a white man, was put to death a month later, he There were 20,000 xren at Camp 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 Hangings, 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 adjurned until next Tuesday. Senator Willis, after presenting his resolution stated that he had received today thirty-six Jetters, all pu pils of a sixth grade school, all urging him to vote against the seating of Mr. Newberry. The letters were identical in phraseology, the genater add ed, and were written In the childish hand of school children of that age.

"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 thv interview er’s disclaimer that such an action had been observed, he continued. "The Free Press won’t publish the facts as they are, hot I'll tell the peo ple.’’ "Some of these days you'll tr ine telling ’em from the street cor ners.” ' The prisoner explained at length that he was in jail at this time be cause bls counsel had neglected him. On his first call to his attorney he prefaced his remarks with "What the h— 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- 'meat as to his opinion on these reg ulations but offered no protest and Mrs. Oaten said this afternoon that 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 IL” remarked Walters as he puffed away apparent ly as unconcerned and at peace the world.

The case will be appealed to the state supreme court. Attorney Regan in formed Thb 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. “I was hardly looking for such drastic action.” Shortly before three o’clock Watters was back on the job at the People’s Ice company Dlant 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 was to connect with the sewer or pay fine imposed. His counsel then hsked for a %tay of execution of thir ty days for time to perfect and appeal to the Supreme court which Mr. Wat ters saw fit to do so. The time of the stay expired on the 12th day of Janu- * ary 1922. The suspension of the sen tence will expire on the 12th day of February 1922.” (December 30-January 6-13.)
