ing to do both at the same time might ;
, make confusion in the minds of the
M people, and the work of the associa- I
[? ? tion would come to naught,
f.; George. A. Richer, former lirft I
t deputy of New Vork State highway
??' department, spoke on "Road Building: ;
un Engineer's Function." He dec.ared j
that between tho State Highway Com- i
? ^ mission and the county supervisor j
^ there should ?bo tho closest, most ;
: sympathetic ro-operation. County
highway officials should bo. in a largo j
measure responsible to tho State High
; way Commission and should welcome
aid from them.
Care of the improved roads by th<*
county Is unsatisfactory, he said. In '
I; XewPTork State the^raveler at one time
i knew when he went from one county [
into atiothrr by the difference in the
r' surface of the road, but since the.State
ha6 taken over the supervision of the
maintenance of roads, that condition
i has been eliminated. Such a condition
I', will eventually confront Virginia, is
*? his opinion, and the method used in
' j Xffw York will be the most suiisfac
lory solution.
Work of Morning Session,
j*: .. At the morning session V. M. Pierce,
of the United State Office of Public
Uoads. expressed his opinion that the
concrete road, when properly con
? structed. is far euperJor to the maoi
' ' u-tlam or any other surface, and advo
cated that the permanent system which
??. is to be built In Virginia should be
I of this material.
a - A resolution was offered by Henry i
3K Roberts, of the Bristol Chamber of j
Commerce, urging that the tax on au- 1
r*-vtomobiles be raised to ?1.00 per horse
Si >iower. The income from Mils source
S<1 the one mil! tax on property
tf . juld he used to maintain the hijrh
>'? way commission and construct roads.
tj He estimates that ?5,000,000 will be
raised annually from these sources,
which, with the Federal appropriations ,
r of >2.000.000, will give the State J9-.- J
?jOO.OOO in the six years after January i
*. 1021, for the building of permanent
roads.
He favors a bond icsuo, not more ;
than $60.000,000 to be outstanding at
any one time. The plan suggested will i
be continuous until the present State (
highways and nuch of the principal
highways of the State as the General |
Assembly may deem proper, arc in- .

i Manhattan Begins 48-Hour Celebration of Demise of
! King Booze?Hysteria and Recklessness Characterize
Conduct of Crowds?Sleep Off Final Spree Sunday.
BY AKU STI.V LAltUV.
XKW YORK. Jan. 15.?At midnight
tonight John Barleycorn, reeling up and
down Proxil vay, 'hiccoughed to the
vv!iol?? world that the news regarding
his death tonight had been again pre
maturely announced and greatly ex
aggerated.
When all the lights in one famous
Broadway liostetry hud been extin
guished save the tall tapers ilaring at
the head anil foot of a silver-mounted
casket reposing on a dais in the center
of the huge ballroom: when every head
of his devotees was bnved in solemn
meditation upon the demise of tho
merry old gentleman ho sat up sudden
ly in his coffin and shrieked a peal of
wild laughter.
There was hysteria, recklessness, In
finity e.'en and fear?yes, fear?in that
echoing outburst of merriment. Tho
puffy face of the "dead man" was pale
as the cerements that swathed him;
his hand trembted as he seized a t'agon
renr his bier and drained it at a gulp,
but his eyes were twin caverns of flam
ing defiance. Then he bounced out of
his casket, flung the black velvet nail
swaggeringly about his fat old shoulders
and staggered out of the room, his
I bloated body shaking with his screams
i of crazy lauKhter.
The iiKhts went up; the orchestra
began jazzing Chopin's "Funeral
March." and the seared New Yorkers,
pale t<"uomselves, despite tho evening
of vinous revelry, forced a laugh and
[ drank apain ? drank to tomorrow
;*nitrlit and the second night of King
I Barleycorn's wake and funeral?drank
.deeply, for-nil New York knows that
i at 12:01 A. M., January 17, 1020, the
j lving will bo dead, the prohibit ion i.-'tic
| heir to all his realm and little
I eighteenth aniendmont will be born.
| And so it came to pass that all Man
| hattan, yea, even llarlom and the
| Bronx, realizing that King Booze was.
indeed, about to die, began its wake
and-funerai celobration tonight, with
the intention of continuing it tomorrow
night, hangover or no hanger, and
those worshipers of the ruddy soul of
the grape who have private collars in
?tend to carry on the festivities far into
Saturday ntyrht. Cynical, case-hardened
