ARE STUDENTS OF LAW JUST OW County Commissioners Are in Quandary Over Washing ton Tp. Road. NO REMONSTRANCE YET. VERY PROBABLE THAT THERE WILL BE NO OBJECTION TO THE ROAD EVEN THOUGH IT WILL COST $18,000 OR MORE. TTTTT Local members of the T. P. A., are enthusiastic over the efforts this or ganization is to make in securing na lion al legislation which will compel all railroads In the United States to do away with the wooden passenger coaches. W. If. Qnigg, chairman of the press committee, of the local post, has Issued the following statement: Frank W. Crandell, chairman of the national railroad committee and John S. Harwood, chairman of the national legislative committee are in Washing ton working for the passage of a bill denta for whJch inere is not and nev will entirely abolish the present sys tem of train dispatching; and what we believe to be of more Importance, at least for immediate adoption, is the use of passenger cars, to be construct ed of steel, which, therefore will pre vent both the collapsing of the car in event of coliision. and its subsequent destruction by fire, which is usually incidental to such an accident. The members of the Travelers' Pro tective association appreciate the fact that a certain percentage of accidents in the operation of our extensive rail road system is unavoidable. Partic ularly is this true when In addition to the natural hazard is added that inci dent to hasty or over economical con struction of roadbeds and bridges, and tho operation of fast trains by men not familiar with the peculiarities of the curves and grades Qver which they are running as it is apparent to every one that it is Impossible to elevate the outside rail of a curve so as to suit all I speeds but there is one class of acel- lntroduced in congress, which promises to do away with wooden passenger coaches. Coaches Dangerous. These gentlemen consider wooden passenger coaches one of the greatest menaces to travelers, and believe that the Travelers' Protective association composed of 37,(KX) members in every state In the union, whose vocation makes imperative the continued use of ail means of transportation, is greatly concerned in the enormous death rate which the railroads of this country are piling up year after year. L'1,000 persons have sacrificed their lives on American railways during the last five years; In 10O3 the totals were 3,554 dead and 45,787 Injured; in 1904 hey numbered 3,78 i dead and 51,o4.5 Injured; in 1005 the roads killed 3,708 persons and wounded ro,433; in lOOti the death roll had grown to 4,235 and the injured numbered 00,707; in 1!07 the list of deaths reached 5,0 and that of the injured 71,000. Like Great Battle. These figures read more like the casualty list of some of tho great bat tles for the world's history, but even they do not tell the whole story, for tke Interstate Oommerco Commission vcporta great difficulty in getting ac curate statistics of casualties from tho railroads. In the nineteen years since tho luterstate commerce com er can be an excuse, and that is a col lision, either rear or butting. Since it is apparent that the railroad companies cannot discipline their em ployes as to prevent accidents of this nature, it does not seem inappropriate to insist that they shall at least, spare no expense to minimize the effect of the accidents which they cannot avoid. By far the greatest loss of life from collisions is due either to the splinter ing of the cars or to their collapsing in such a way as to make impossible the scape of the inmates, who are fre quently burned alive in the fires which Inasmuch, as the application for the construction of a new road in Wash ington township is the first which has come before the board of county com missioners since the new law became effective, it has placed the board in a quandary. Tho commissioners are now thejrough students of the law, and the assistance of the county attorney is Bought repeatedly. To construct this road it will cost more than ?1S.M and although the petition haB been on file with the county auditor for more than two weeks, there has been no re monstrance presented. It is not be lieved likely one will be presented. The entire cost of construction must be borne by the township and the auditor must issue bonds to cover the pay ments. Bond Necessary. It will be necessary to appoint a su perintendent, who shall have charge of the construction work. The name of Fred Davi3 has been suggested and unless the petition be killed by remon strance, he is likely to be accorded the position. It will be necessary to place the engineer, who shall superintend the construction, and the superintend ent under bond. There are but -very few public improvements which the law specifies shall be conducted by bonded superintendents and engineers. What Law Says. The law on this point which is self explanatory, reads as follows: "It shall be the duty of the county commissioners to appoint a compe tent superintendent to supervise the construction of such road or roads ac cording to the plans, profiles and spec ifications filed by the engineer and viewers, on which the contract to con struct such road or roads was let. He shall be a resident of one of the town ships in which the road or roads is lo cated and his compensation shall not exceed $2 per day for the time actually employed, to be paid out of the con struction fund of said road or roads, and he shall render an account of his time to the commissioners monthly at the regular term of their court, sub scribed by oath. He shall give bond in the penal sum of $5,000. The en gineer shall give bond in the penal sum of $0,tx).

In anoth er case, where a train was being oper ated at high speed in a subway, the cars were derailed and dragged for a considerable distance, thrashing back and forth between the stone walls of the subway, until their former occu pants were strewn the entire distance, unrecognizable as humanity, and the car3 themselves totally demolished. With fireproof cars the first accident would have been much less fatal, and with cars having greater resistance, the loss from the second accident would have been materially reduced.

The Democratic Party Must Merit Support Before It Can Win Elections Should Be a Party of the People. A STRONG ARGUMENT FOR PARTY BETTERMENT. Politics, considered from any viewpoint, is a plain, every day business proposition, subject to the usual vicissitudes and changes incident to the good or bad management of business concerns. Party declarations, the selection of candidates, the conduct of campaigns and the discharge of official duties than Mils for noniilar favor. If they accord with ( W C 11 7 1, 1 1 1 i 1 fS l""1 1 v 'lJ 1 .v. 1 i - - I taining success, wealth and influence public sentiment tho party will grow in strength and influence, otacrwise inc. The remedy is yours for tho asking. Dyspepsia bars tho way to your at- niean a strict application of business principles to party campaigning. Hon esty iu politics is as essential to party success as it is to the prosperity of a business concern. After having restored harmony in the de mocratic ranks and placed th party management in the hands of capable, worthy loaders, the next thing to be done is to augment the party strength. That strength must be gained from the labor vote, always remembering that voters will not support a party when it is wrong. Democratic principles should 1? strictly adhered to, and the den trines and policies of the party should be so clearly defined an l so zealously guarded by conservative methods that public welfare will not be neglected or jeopardized. There would be fewer socialists and less discontent if the demo cratic party would indeed become a party of the people and devote its legis lation and official energies to benefiting the masses instead of allowing itself io be manipulated for private gain. The truthfulness of this criticism is demonstrated by the developments of the present Gubernatorial campaign. Having once merited and acquired the labor vote what is to prevent the . democratic party from t'ontrollinjj public affairs for an indefinite period 7 Nothing but its own moral weakness aud the failure of its leaders and public, officials to faithfully perform their duties. Voters have had the honey of democratic promises dropped onto their tongues so many times that It now tastes bitter. Tin; party must then make good in order to win future favor anrl become more popular. When that is dono democrats may truly boast of belonging to a party of the people, and the masses may justly feel proud of a political organization devoted to their betterment. The thoughts above defined prompted my candidacy for the democratic Gubernatorial nomination. I have been a wage earner and was once employ ed at the princely sum of I.00 a week, and I know what it means to work and suffer privation. My sympathies are entirely with the laboring classes ii their struggle to rise above want and a dependent condition.

Why not make a fresh beginning, and at the expenditure of only 50 cents in the purchase of a box of Stu- .,nnnrt from tho vntine nuhlie. Prosperous business concerns deal m iun suffer neglect while political organizations continually are adding to the good fortune of those already abundantly able to take care of themselves. For that reason, as democrats, we should convert our party- organization into a medium for public betterment, rather than allow it to be used by those whose sympa thies and inclinations are not with the masses.
