second federal aid good
I roads convention, to be held in
I this city, March H and 7. under
Jg, I fie auspices of the American
Autouiobile Association, prima- 1
rily to concent-ate the thought and '
crystallize ihc good roads sentiment of 1
the country at large along practical and '
equitable lines of federal participation in '
read building, promises to be the largest J
affair of its kind ever held in the National
Capital. ^
It is expected that more than a thou- i
sand delegates will be in attedanee at (
the convention, which will be held in the J
Hotel Raleigh. Every state will have j
official representation through a delega- j
tion named by the governor, which in 1
many instances includes the highway
I engineer or member of the highway coin1
mission of the state. The business organ- ]
izations of the countrv will be represent- I
! ed b.. delegations appointed by the lead- 1 '
' ing chambers of commerce and boards of j
trade. The farmers will have representa- (
tion through delegations named by the ]
various state granges and tlie "organized ]
motorists and road users throughout the
country are alive to the importance of }
! this nation-wide gathering of good roads j
The federal aid "boosters" will arrive
in Washington just as the inauguration |
! crowds are departing for their homes.
Every member of Congress will be invited
to attend this comprehensive con|
vent ion. The evening of March t> the
National Grange, the Chamber of .Com- j
merce of the 1'nited States and the Ameri- j
< can Automobije Association will supply
their most prominent highway advo- I
rates. Senator Jonathan Bourne, chair- j
man of the joint committee of Congress J
which is now investigating the subject
of federal aid, lias been invited to preside
ai the gathering. This will lie concluded
with an Illustrated talk by Warden
i Thomas J. Tynan of the Colorado state [ 1
penitentiary. No man in the 1'nited j
: States, ii is said, lias accomplished so .
much as Warden Tynan in the use of i I
prison inmates in the building of roads, j I
j and all this with methods that embrace
an honor system, an absence of guards ;
and the wearing of citizens' clothing.

Other Speakers.
The chairman of the National Grange, j
C. S. Stetson of Maine, chairman of its j
executive committee, is another man who j
has given much thought to the good
roads question in its relation to the men
and women living in the country and will '
deliver at) Interesting anaress. n :s ca-j
peeted that President Harry A. Wheeler f
will speak for the Chamber of Commerce,
and the interest of his organization in the
improvement of the highways lias been!
tin invitable development. The automo- j
bile industry, the growth of which has j
been a business wonder, is well representwill
speak for the chamber of commerce,
Among those who are prominently identified
with that organization are H. A.
; Meldrum. former president of the Automobile
Club of Buffalo and now the
j president of the local chamber of com!
merce of that city, and C. C. Hanch,
J president of the Indianapolis Chamber of ,
Commerce and identified with one of the j
! largest motor car manufacturing con- ;
cents in the west.
The lirst convention under tlie auspices |
__ of the A. A. A. was held in this city j
- in January of last year and was a pro- i
nouneed success. The 1912 convention J
placed the proposition of national highways
officially before the country, and It |
Is expected hy the good roads promoters j :
that this year's convention will result in j >
obtaining from the next Congress definite | <
legislation upon which the actual building
of the national roads may soon begin.
As the result of last year's affair Con-,
gress was stirred up to the point of appointing
a joint committee of ten to considrr
the whole question of national road
building and incidentally brought forth ,
an appropriation of $500,000 to he spent
on the post roads of the I'nited States.
Tlie disbursement was under the super- ,
vision of Postmaster General Hitchcock
! and Secretary Wilson of the Department
! of Agriculture.
* * ? *
The Joint Committee.
The post office appropriation act provided
.for a joint committee of five members
of the Senate and five members of !
the House to make inquiry into tlie sub- ,
ject of federal aid in the construction of
post roads. Tlie committee is composed
of Senators Jonathan Bourne, jr., of Ore- .
gon. Boies Penrose of Pennsylvania, Asle ;
J. Gronna of North Dakota. Claude A. >
Swanson of Virginia and Leo S. Overman 1
of North Carolina, and Representatives
Dorsev W. Shackleford of Missouri, Gordon
I-ee of Georgia, Daniel J. McGillieuddy
of Maine. Martin B. Madden of Illinois
and Richard W. Austin of Texas.
The secretary of the committee is A.
W. Prescott; assistant secretary, John
Shackleford; statistician, J. E. Penny)
backer of the American Highway AssoI
elation and Richard R. Nixon, disbursing
The joint committee iias accumulated
a vast amount of data concerning good
roads, and a large number of members
from both the Senate and House have
introduced hills providing for federal
aid in one form or another. It is not
expected that many of the bills will
Several of them contain little or
rothing that is good in the eyes of the
good roads enthusiast and will not be
seriously considered, but what the
delegates to the convention desire is
to pick out the good features of all
the proposed legislation and have them
incorporated in one bill or in a formal
report of the joint committee. To this
end most of the- speakers before the
Washington convention will be senators
or representatives who have introduced
federal aid bills. They will
be asked to go before the delegates
and explain their measures and have
them discussed.
The leaders of the good roads movement
declare they are seeking to im- <
press upon Congress the necessity for
I starting right in establishing a government
highways policy. The leaders
want to avoid the old "pork barrel"
methods of distributing the highway
funds. Senator Burton of Ohio recently
asserted that more than one-half of
i the $o0< ,000,000 spent on the improvement
' of our waterways had been wasted in
political patronage to members of Con|
gross, and it is declared that the same
: story of squandered millions in high!
way building will be told unless this
sort of waste is made impossible at the
; outset.
Therefore, the organizations behind the
national roads propaganda have mapped
out a program and are going to Wash
ington with certain ideas, which, if put
| into the government's highway laws, they
believe, will obviate possibility of jiolitical
i graft in road building. First, they want
; the federal government to lay out, build
and maintain a comprehensive trunk line
system of highways, connecting, so far as
J possible, state capitals and the larger
? centers of population, these lines to take
over, where practicable, all established
*r interstate routes.
y They want state roads which are to include
all highways connecting county
sr seats with the state capital. These roads
g would be tributary to the national trunk
it Hues and built at the expense of the
state alone, although it is stated that at
first, in some sections, a part of the federal
funds might be apportioned to or
loaned to the state for its own roads.
They want county roads to be paid for
d at the joint expense of the state, county
!?- and towusldpt in such proportion as would
best suit the needs of the various states.
They want township roads to be jointly
' bt lit by the state and township, the ex!*
pense of construction and maintenance
li* i to be divided. Thus the township roads
d j would tit into tlie county, roads t ?
! cuntv into the -tat-, tic i bu
' **^vW/^IE^
national highways, forming a. perfect r
system. I
* ^ ^ * r
Working Out System. t
Greatest attention is given to working j
jut the idea for the national roads. It is
estimated that a complete system of na- i
tional highways traversing the most pop- '
liIous sections of the country would in- 1
dude not to exceed 30.0U0 miles. It is fl
rurther estimated that these roads could c
>e built for about Slo.OOt* a mile, bringing s
he total cost of the national system up to <
sKVO.tWHi.tioo. The pivotal point, however, is e
lliat some fixed policy be established by t
Congress whereby federal funds shall be
jsed for the building of a co-ordinated r
system of trunk line roads, instead of i
laving the money scattered indiserimi- \
lately among the congressional districts, g
ivhich could have 110 other result than the 1
juildfng of a disconnected, patchwork sys:eni
of roads involving great waste.
The leaders in the government roads 1
propaganda assert that they feel that the
ight from now on is going to be comparatively
easy. They declare that the senti- n
merit of the whole country is substantial- y
ly with them and that now it is only a
question of being sure about getting the s
ight start. They declare that most of the I'
persons who a few years ago were tight- e

ing the good roads agitation are now the e
strongest'boosters. This is especially" true e
of tlie farmers, they say, who now, indi- a
viduaily and through their national and 1j
local granges, are doing all they can to
help along the good roads campaign.
Wherever improved highways have made J
their appearance the farmers have found
that the money expended is paying large
dividends and they are eager to see the t
work extended. h
Where good roads have supplanted the o
old mud roads farmers have found the 1
value of their lands greatly enhanced and h
they have found that they can move their p
produce to market at about one-fourth the h
former cost. Statistics from the i'nlted i
States office of public roads show that
the average haul of farm products in the
I'uited States i.- nine and four-tenths J
miles, and that the average cost a ton
a mile over American roads, gopd, bad
and indifferent. is 2'! cents, while '
over the improved roads of Hoi- i '
land, for example, 1 lie average haul cost. j d
is S cents a ton a mile. Taking the distance
r>f nine and four-tenths miles as the aver- ^
age haul, there is shown to he a loss of
81.41 on every ten of produce raised and
marketed in the I'nited States because
of bad roads. .
* * * * h
Many Benefits Derived.
Hut the farmers have discovered lhat ?
good roads have not benefited them in a
financial sense alone. Good highways i ^
have enabled them lo get away from <_
home and get hack again with comfort
and speed. They have made it possible j
for their children to go to school with
dry feet in all kinds of weather. They
have brought people from other parts of
the country past their own <loors. In
l'avt, the good roads have put the localities
"on the map." V few years ago
these same farmers were using shotgun
arguments against the automobilists. 1
Now a large number of them own ears
themselves and tire among the most
active allies of the American Automobile *
Association in carrying the good roads ,
campaign into "Washington. ^
While no definite system of national i
roads has yet been established, several j
routes have been much discussed in the r
last decade. Among these are the
"Ocean to Ocean stone highway," the
"Meridian road" and the "Montreal to *
Miami highway." The last named
route, which will extend from Montreal,
Canada, to Miami. Fla., is well under 1
way and a considerable part of it -has i
been completed. l'
The "Meridian road" is projected to t
run from Winnipeg, Canada, directly to i
Galveston, Tex., touching many of the
large towns in the Dakotas. Nebraska, /
Kansas and Oklahoma.
The proposed "Ocean to Ocean stone
highway" at present is attracting a .
great deal of attention. To build this
great transcontinental thoroughfare it 11
Is proposed to have all of the larger
manufacturers of automobiles and motor 1
car accessories pledge 1 per cent of
their gross income for one year. It is *
roughly estimated that the road will
post $25,000,000 and up to date a eonsid- Ji
erable number of the prominent automobile
makers of the country have pledged
their 1 per cent share of the fund. t
The project for the ocean to ocean road v
was set in motion hv a group of enthusiasts
in Indianapolis at a banquet of auto- 1
mobile men about a year ago. and before 1

subscribed by those at the dinner. ^
Influence Enlisted.
Scores of strong influences not directly
embraced in the group of road using interests
are enlisted in the national aid J
movement, and one of these interests is
the large group of men and women who
have formed associations for exploiting
the old pioneer trails and want to see p
these historic old thoroughfares included s<
in the system of national highways. There
are the Santa He Trail. Association, the J,
Old Oregon Trail Association, the National
Old Trails Road Association. Inter- Sl
mountain Good Roads Association, San
Diego-Arizona Auxiliary Highway Association.
Pacific Highway Association and a
the Omaha-Denver Good Roads Associa- 11

Mrs. Olive Schultz Drove
"Scout" Car From New
York to Capital.
One of the most interesting: characters
connected with the suffragist "army,"
which arrived in the National Capital
yesterday, is Mrs. Olive Schultz. who
drove the official "scout" car for "Gen."
Rosalie Jones' pilgrims from New York
to Washington, always being in advance
of tlie "hikers.' Mrs. Schultz piloted a
Buick roadster all the way. through mud
and rain, pulling into Washington none
the worse for her strenuous run. ifer
car was covered with tings and pennants,
all bespattered with mud. showing that
the roads were in a horrible condition in
places between the two cities.
Mrs. Schultz's duties consisted of moOUT"
ft ->
iaucr of the "hikers'' on trip from \cw
toring ahead every noon and night and
arranging for meals and accommodations
for the "hikers" as they continued on
their journey. Each day since the party
left New York she would drive ahead to
notify the various hotels of their approach
and more than once she returned
to the marchers to inform the "general"
of the difficulties to be encountered in the
road, or to advise tlie "general" that the
longest way around was the shortest wayhome.
She hail to stop once without an escort
alone on a dark road and replace a tire.
Quite often- she would go hack at nightfall
and look up the stragglers wiio hud
fallen by tiie wayside temporarily. Coming
through the muddy stretch between
Elkton and Perryville her machine floundered
around in the mud up to the axles
and through those fifteen miles she had the
worst experience of her life. With
the exception of replacing two tires no
road troubles were experienced. Mrs.
Sehultz is a sturdy little woman, a pluckydriver
and very entertaining. She told
of the details of her trip from New York
to this city and of the hardships experienced
on the trip from New York to
Albany, when" she accompanied recently
the "hikers" on their visit to Gov. Sulzer.
