STATE ROCK ROAD IS PIJflDi
COVER 400 MILES OP TERRITORY
Bin. WILL BE PRESENTED TO
SESSION OF LEGISLATURE
NOW IN SESSION.
Counties May Use Prisoners on the
Roads New Road to Connect
State Institutions Original
Plan Will Include Use
of Convicts.
Topeka, Kan. A rock road that will
cover nearly every section of Kansas
built In a network of paved highways
from one state Institution to nnother,
ts the plan that will be explained soon
to the state senate. A bill will be in
troduced calling for convict labor on
'this road, and an authority for coun
ties and townships donating money
and Jail labor in the Interest of con
nectlng highways. If the legislature
approves the Milton plan as outlined.
It will give Kansas the greatest sys
tem of permanent roads of any state
,-" Itf the west.
, It Is 'furthermore proposed that the
counties In other sections of the state
be encouraged In the proposition by
legislated power to place their prison
ers on the highways. He believes that
within five or six years the state will
be covered by solid stone ribbed mud
less thoroughfares.
. The Btate-btiilt road a highway con
structed by convicts from the pi i .'
tentiary would cover from 300 to 400
miles of territorv. No preliminary es
timate of the cost has been made.
Here Is the proposed route for the
rock roads through Kansas from one
state institution to another:
Lansing to Kansas City, Kansas
thence to Kansas University at Law
rence, westo Topeka ard northwest
to Manhattan. From Manhattan it
would lead straight west to liays City
in Ellis county and northeast to Be
loit with a probable connection again
with Manhattan.
Another route would lead from Kan
sas City, Kansas, to the state hospital
- at Rosedale, thence to Olathe, Osawat
omle, and south to Parsons and Pitts
burg. From Topeka would start still an
other highway southwest to Emnoiia,
on to Newton into Hutchinson, straight
west to Larned, southwest to Dodge
City. A connection either at Larned
or Hutchinson would bring the road in
to Ellsworth with a possible second
link at Hays City.
"Wichita would be given a line from
.fJejvton directly south and on down to
VVVield. A road from Wintield to
Pittsburg through the larger towns
of the southern tier of counties would
serve this part of the state. A strip
from Lansing to Atchison would han
dle this territory.
The main road mentioned would be
built by three hundred state convicts
wtih modern road building machinery.
It would be supervised by state drain
age and road experts. The counties
through which the road ran would
pay for the material and the fwn
ships would pay for the cost of haul
ing this material to the ground. The
construction work or the greatest part
of the saving in expense would be
done by the state.
Later the county seats and larger
towns could build connecting roads
with county jail labor.
The plan is supported ardently by
enthusiastic road builders in the state.
HE FINDS BIG LOSS.
Sealer of Weights and Measures Says
Scales Incorrect.
Lawrence, Kan. Every third load
of produce bought or sold in Kansas
passes over Incorrect scales and re-
suiting losses to the farmer mount
up Into the million dollar column an
nually. That Is the substance of a re
port to the legislature completed by
Edwin F. Stimpson, assistant profes
sor of physics at the University of
Kansas, and deputy scaler of weights
and measures for the state.
'Of the 100 wagon scales inspected
by me personally this year 33 were in.
accurate," says Professor Stimpson.
'A scale is considered correct If it
does not vary more than 10 pounds to
the ton from the true weight. Of
those I found faulty, nineteen were
lightweights, recording less than 2,000
pounds for a ton of produce, and four
teen were in the heavy class., The
slow scales averaged 1,975 pounds and
the fast one3 2,024. For when a scale
goes bad it usually is very bad.
"One Kansas city was found to be
buying coal for its schools and munici
pal buildings over a city scale which
recorded 2,031 pounds to the ton. And
it had been doing this for five years
until we discovered the error last
month. Coal dealers and merchants
of the city who were using these 'offi
cial' scales were losing five per cent
of their 'product."
Tho legislature will be asked to
make an appropriation for six Inspect
ors at $1,200 a year to work in con-
unction with the board of health with
authority to put out of commission
any scale pff more than 10 pounds to
the ton.

In, by blocks of ten.
One of the most Important and far-
reaching bills of the session was In
troduced in the senate by Senator
Nixon of Sumner county. It would
place counties under the commission
form of government the same as cities.
It does away with all county officers
except probate judge, county attorney
and superintendent of schools and
three commissioners. The commis
sioners are given supervision over all
ounty affairs. The commissioner of
health and safety looks after the du
ties of sheriff, coroner, surveyor, and
health and poor officers. The com
missioner of records looks after the
work of county clerk, district clerk
and register of deeds. The commis
sioner of finance and taxation does the
work of treasurer, assessor and all
taxing officers. All are to be elected
to four-year terms. The plan may be
adopted by counties by petition of 10
per cent of the vote and a majority in
its favor. It is urged as more econom
ical and better business than the old
county officer system. The plan has
a strong following in the senate and
it is said the bill will pass.
Blame for the high cost of living
was placed upon the Republican tariff
by Senator M alone. The new Demo
cratic senator introduced a resolution
to the effect that the Kansas senate
shall petition Woodrow Wilson, "the
greatest man of the age," according to
Senator Malone's resolution, to call
a special session of congress to lower
the tariff. Senator Malone's resolution
declared that the cost of living ha3
become almost prohibitive.

set another precedent. Perhaps for
the first time in the history or a
Kansas legislative session, there was
applause following prayer. Rev.
Charles M. Sheldon, who offered pray

the sentiments of Rev. Sheldon's gray

Salina, Kan. Robbers entered the

Locked in Big Steel Vault.
Ottawa, Kan. While half crazed
friends ran about town trying to dis
cover the combination, Frank Baldwin,
county clerk, remained locked In a
big steel vault for three hours. Only
the memory of John Bell, who served
as couirty clerk eight years ago and
who gave the combination from Salina
over the telephone, saved Baldwin's
life. Bell and Baldwin himself, were
the only two men who knew the com
bination and Baldwin could not make

Women Will Fight Inheritance Tax.
The new voters of Kansas, the wo
men, will aid in the abolishment of
the Inheritance tax law. This has been
made plain by Mrs. Lilla Day .Monroe,
president of the Good Government
club. The women's organizations have
named a legislative committee which
will come to Topeka during the ses
sion and make a fight for and against
legislation. Among those who will
take part in the fight will be Mrs.
Monroe, Miss Nan Herron of Topeka,
president of the Business Women's
club, and Mrs. Mary A. Horton, presi
dent of the Federation of Women's
clubs. One of the things the "women
are particularly Interested in is the In
heritance tax law, and they are op
posed to it. They hold that It is un
constitutional in spirit, that it discrim
inates against the women. "Why,"
asked Mrs. Monroe, "should a woman
whose husband dies be taxed upon an
inheritance when she labored beside
her husband to accumulate the little
amount of money that Is left her? Un
der the law she is joint owner of all
the property and we fail to see how
it can be looked upon as an inherit
ance." The women will ask for
"white Blave" legislation, although the
details have not yet been worked out.
It will probably- be similar to legisla
tion of that character enacted in oth
er states. The women will ask for a
law simplifying the probate court prac
for women and for a minimum wage
scale for women. They will ask for a
law simplifying the probate colrt prac
tice. They want the practice made so
plain that the widow may be able to
understand all about it without em
ploying legal assistance.
