now leave, at 8:43, 7:59 and 2:02, re

Candidates Urged to Declare Agalhat
Republican Convention Resolution
Against State Highway Department
Which Would Preclude Ohio From
Securing National Aid and Militate
Against Good Road.
Non-partisan organizations Inter
ested in the better highways move
ment are said to be planning formal
protest against the G. O P. platform
plank to abolish the state highway
department. This is being done, not
only because of the demonstrated effi
ciency of work under the central head
working with a definite system, but
because it would take away all hope
of Ohio's sharing in the funds that
will be given by the national govern
ment under the terms of the Shackle
ford bill, now pending in congress,
with its passage practically assured.
The spirit of protest has developed
in preliminary discussion of this par
ticular plank in the Republican plat
form, which proposes that funds f oi
construction of modern highways be
turned over to county commissioners
of the various counties, and that the
highway commission be done away
with. It is declared to be not improb
able that the Republican candidates
may be asked to repudiate the decla
rations of the platform In this regard,
for those who have followed the work
ing out of the highway plans assert
the proposed change would undo
much of the work that has been done,
setting the state back many years.
Auto Body. Protests.
Organizations which are now merg
ed in the Ohio Good Roads Federation
brought about the creation of the
ttate highway department, and the de
partment since has been supported
generally in its progressive work by
chambers of commerce, boards of
trade; civic societies and by the Ohio
State Automobile association. ' It ' is
declared that ppne of these bodies ap
prove the suggestion to turn froni the
state-aid policy and will voice strong
ly tneir protests. Even Republican
eaders, it appears, do sot sanction
the abolition of the state highway de
partment Editorial utterances of the
Marion Star,, which is owned and ed-
ited by Warren GJ Harding, are cited.
In regard to the projects under way,
The Star editorially speaks of them
as "simply amazing, ana cans tae
work that has been done "a remark
able showing." General R. B. Brown,
Republican gubernatorial candidate
two years ago, in a letter calls the
highway bureau "a great depart
ment " and wishes it success. "in the
plans for model highways in dear old
Because of the platform's proposal,
State Highway Commissioner James
R. Marker has Issued a statement, in
which he asserts that backers of the.
proposal appear to have overlooked
the fact that the department was cre
ated under the administration of for
mer Governor Myron T. Herrick, arid
that "the first appropriation for its
maintenance was made by a Republi
can legislature." He further points out
that, while a partisan body In the be
ginning, the bureau has been made a
non-partiean organization. (
Sees 25-Year Setback.
"The suggestion that all Ohio's pub
lic ronds shall be constructed, main
tained or repaired by the county au
thorities instead of by a regularly con
stituted state highway department,
means that Ohio's road program will
be set back twenty-five years," and,
continuing, Mr. Marker says: "Under
such a plan roads will be built 'that
begin nowhere and end nowhere,' and
will result in a system 'costly; im
practicable, meaningless and , futile.' "
No othfr state that has gone to
state control, Mr. Marker says, has
returned to the local system, and the
ranks of states with highway depart
ments constantly are being swelled.
especially since the federal govern
ment has gone on record as favoring
the, centralization plan.
$120,000 This Ysar.
Under an act that appropriated
(500,000 for the benefit of post roads
throughout the country, Ohio , receiv
ed $120,000, or nearly one-fourth of
the totaL This large share for Ohio
was in aid of the restoration of the
old National pike, whicn became -a
state project rather than a local one,
Ohio, this year, will ACTUALLY
IMPROVE 360 miles of public roads,
It will contract for a total of 900 to
1,000 miles. The cost of the work will
compare ,, favorably with the cost of
similar work in 'other states and is
considerably lower than the cost of
the same kind &f work in many states
-&fia- the Kenaral plan of operation
has met with the endoriement,of nu-
Mix'tutomoblls associations, all
of the NaUouirWwaf aasOdaUons,
many of ths state's civic bodies, many
local chambers of commerce and hun
dreds of the state's best known bust
ness and professional am, rgardlu
of political party. '
N the days when fighting was done with short range rifles,
it was a familiar command that defenders of forts heard.
It was, "Hold Your Fire." The strategy of this step was f
attested by columns of Red Coats flying down Bunker Hill
and retreating in confusion from many a small isolated for-
tress invested and besieged 'by superior numbera.
'Hold Your Fire" is very good advice to Democrats in I
these days of 1914. when the contact is to be close and where
there will be plenty of "in-fighting," as they say in the boxing
ring. Charge after charge will be made by the enemy on
reams and reams of white paper that ought to be used for the
dissemination of fact and truth. All the falsehoods that will
be started can not be disposed of at long range from a distance.
Wait till they get near and a single volley will clear away
their foul presence as the noonday sun clears away the mists.' 2
Official records continue to refute the baseless and pur-
posely deceitful statements that are made about various phases
oi governmental activity. For instance, it was said that the j
state liquor license board and the county license commissions
that have brought such restrictions to the liquor traffic as were
never known before are a burden to the general taxpayers.
Official records show on the contrary that not even remotely ft
does the general taxpayer bear the burden. To the general 5
revenue fund, itself raised by special taxes and license fees, 2
has recently been transferred the sum of $600,000. Who paid
it? The answer is easy. The licensed saloonkeepers each paid
a special tax of $1,000 to maintain the regulatory system i
which was placed in operation by demand of popular vote,
and which is protecting the law-abiding men in places where
the people want the traffic. Careful and economical supervi
sion has kept the cost down to such an extent that the annual
report of the license board shows a balance of $000,000.
blown out of water by the official records. There will be other 1
attempts to deceive. May they meet the safne fate ! I
HARDING'S INCONSISTENCY EX
' POSED. .
Warren G. Harding says that to re
store the rule of the state to the peo
ple is the great issue in Ohio this year
and he is endeavoring to poso as a
great advocate of that principle. In
1912 HardingVas one of the Taft lead
ers in the primary fight between Taft
and Roosevelt. When Roosevelt ca.
rled the state by over 100,000. The
people having expressed their wish to
have the delegates' from Ohio vote for
Roosevelt, Harding led the fight in
the' state convention for Taft, and
through political manipulations man-
" V .
aged to secure six delegates at large
from Ohio for Taft, and he was one
Of them. ; At the Chicargo convention
he placed; Taft In nomination and
voted for him. By a majority of 100,
.000 the Republicans of Ohio had said
they wanted Roosevelt, and' Harding,
who would now have you to think he
was an' ardent believer in the people
ruling, voted for Taft. Jn this in
stance he thwarted the wish of the
people so emphatically expressed, and
If elected United States senator he
will in the same manner carry out the
wish of the people. Do the people .
Ohio want such a representative In
