Biggest Problem Before Association is Crossing of Bitter Root Range He Says. Rockies and Cascades Are Taken Care of. Following is the report of F. W. Guilbert of Spokane, executive secre tary of the National Parks Highway association, who, with Lawrence H. Brown, the Spokane good roads en thusiast, motored from Spokane to , Butte last week and was entertained I by the Butte Hotary club. Secretary : Guilbert'» report, which was printed j in the Spokesman-Review of Spokane, [deals with three roads from Butte to Spokane as follows: From Missoula and Wallace, Missoula and Thompson Falls, and Missoula and Kalispell. By F. W. Guilbert. It is a very difficult thing to bring one's self to be fair to a stretch of road over which on»» has been obliged to run for miles and miles in interme diate at the rate of not over five miles an hour in order to avoid harm to the ear or occupants. Lawrence H. Brown and I traveled 800 miles from Saturday noon, a week ago, to Thursday noon, and we esti mate that 100 miles of the entire dis tance was driven in intermediate. Finds Dust Holes. We drove to Butte in the interests °f the National Parks highway and to assist in arousing more interest in general read matters in Montana. Our outgoing trip was by the Coeur d'Alene-Wallace-Missoula route — the shortest of the three possible cross ings of the Bitter Root range of moun tains. The Fourth of July canyon be tween Coeur d'Alene and Wallace is in exceedingly bad condition owing to bad dust holes, poor culverts and the well-known existing grades. These last are not prohibitive, in the least, though one's car must be in first-class condition in every detail. There are probably 20 miles of this very bad going before reaching Ca taldo, some very bad parts of the road • ~ - being found along the shores of Lake ('m-lir I 1 ' A lenn Rnttf/.on TT- . I In __.1 Coeur d'Alene. Between Wallace and the east Shoshone county line the road is good, with some very bad hills. The switchback grade beyond Mullan is dangerous, particularly to descending cars. A specific warning sign promi nently placed should he provided at the top, advising the strange user or this road to go into low and descend on compression and brake, and calling attention also to the abrupt turn. Tip to Coeur d'Alene. In Mineral county. Montana, we es timated there were some 30 miles of detestable roads. The Nigger hills and St. Regis pass are dangerous, because of steepness and sharp curves, but the footing is good. From Alberton to Missoula the road i» fine, with almost no exceptions. This is 35 miles. It is too bad that Missoula and Wal lace should suffer on account of de ficiency work in adjacent counties. I assume there are good reasons offered for the existing conditions. Surely some method can be worked out to overcome these obstructions. Coeur d'Alene holds a bond issue election soon, I believe, and every good citizen should see the value to them in get ting behind a sensible plan of com pleting this important transcontinental connection. The sample of about eight miles already nearly done In the canyon should develop the public de sire for a completed road of this char acter. Dangerous in Spots. Now as to the other two of the three main routes across the Bitter Root mountains: Our reports show the Kal iapell route to be almost impassable between Sandpoint aSd Troy; between the east Lincoln county line (east of I.lbby) to Kalispell and from Poison to Ronan. These reports come from reputable cltlxens of Libby and Kal «spell. I have not personally inspected this last named route, but know from reports of actual observers the con ditions are not exaggerated. Now as to the Missoula-Ravalll Thonipson Falls-Band point route. Mis soula to Ravalli is good except a neg ligible portion. Ravalli to Plains is good and bad in spots; about 40 per cent good. Plains to Thompson Fulls is average. Thompson Falls to Clarks Fork is 75 per cent bad. Clarks Fork to Hope is fair. Hope to Sandpoint is mostly dangerous going and neg lected road. For 17 miles toward Hpo kane from Sandpoint the going is bad. Nov/ then, what about it? Advises Short Route. My advice to tourists will be to go the shorter route under present con ditions. because the agony will be sooner over. The poorer stretches on the shorter route are worse than those on the middle route, but the last named is about 53 miles longer. The Kalispell or Glacier park route has probably not as much bad going as the middle route, but is about 140 miles longer. The facts are that some of the very had roads are due to a desire to have better roads, and l>ecausc of lack of the usual moisture the new grades ha\e not packed. After the moisture of this fall, winter and next spring many miles of the middle route, par ticularly, will be bettered. Touching Up Efficient. There is too much of a disposition on the part of the authorities with small road funds to move great quan tities of earth or rock. Many times a little touching up of the old road will make an excellent betterment. The hillside roads need widening out; most of them; and the ordinary grades could be in many cases one - hi aui-H i-uuiu ue in many cases one half the width, which would mean al —. ...I . I .. must twice the miles. The biggest problem the National Parks Highway association has to solve, or help in solving, is the cross ing of the Bitter Root range. The Rorkies are taken care of, as are the Cascades. One route should be Im proved at once, if possible. The direct route should be the one to be im proved first, if it can be worked out, although construction, it seems to me, would be easier on the middle routé and this route should be open for travel for a longer period of the year than the others after a bridge is com pleted at Clarks Fork. I hope the Coeur d'Alene people will work out their problem on election day. It seems to me the Sandpoint residents must wake up and get busy. Black Eye From Tourists. it is easy, if any one will do so. to figure that there is money in the tour ist trade for all of us at »12 a car a day or mure. But the tourist will avoid any such conditions us exist in the Bitter Root this year. It has set us buck a full year, as the reputation gained now will be heralded broadcast and we are all going to suffer from the loss of this valuable business. We cannot misrepresent the condi tions. We must have the roads through there, all three of them. soon. If the road Is there the tourist busi ness will pay for It. GIRL FOR ADOPTION.

Surgeon Genera! Blue Is convinced tiiai such edible knickknacks as are .-ibove mentioned should be accurately set down on the public menu as "trash'' and he will, therefore, strictly segregate any of the ubiquitous "pop and peanut" men Who might hover about the various can tonments many miles from their objec tives. Soldiers, as a rule, have pronounced "sweet tooths" and. as a consequence delight in spending their loose change at stands which fly popular colored ad vertising pennants and are heavily armored with tin soft drink emblems. These same soldiers, General Blue maintains, generally have more or less stomach trouble and are manv times tem porarily Incapacitated from their routine of duties. It Is with the object in view of keeping the soldier lads in perfect physical trim that the surgeon general has issued this health order. The surgeon-general's "pop and peanut" edict will reach every army cantonment and camp in the country, but meanwhile the government Is preparing to handle all the soldier trade" through post ex changes. and at the \ »ry best the venders of hot do*s" and the like would have only a short time to operate even If Surgeon-General Blue had not taken a hand in the game. 8.—Venders will get within yelling distance of MARY MACLANE IS GOING INTO MOTION PICTURES According to a published interview in the Chicago Examiner, Miss Maty Maclaute or this city is quoted as stating that she has completed a con tract with the Essanay Film company to appear in a series of moving pic tures. scenarios for which will be 1. .tit sround Miss Maclaine's writing.
