Editor The West Virginian.]?I want !
o aay a tew words to the voters of

o set myself right before my neighors
and fellow cltlsens. There was '
. petition presented to me by Dr. Mil- ,
sr. asking that the good roads be ex- I

, chance to vote for bonds, or no ,
londs, at an election that was to be i
leld In the future, and said election is 1
o be held fair and square, a thing that i
las not been done for perhaps fifty
ears; and said petition had no refer- <
ince to voting for or against bonds as ,
>r. Miller will bear me witness, and :
signed it because 1 thought it was i
lght and I still think so. Now be- ;
anse I signed the petition that Dr.
dlller presented, my best friends come i
it me like thiB: "Uncle John, what *
las changed you to be for bonds when <
ou once opposed them?" Now you
an see at a glance 1 have not express
id myself for nor against bonds beause
of signing a petition. As to bond- i
ng our district 1 am of the same opin- |
on that 1 was before when I tried to i

iow. That debt, I think, is very un- j,
ust, and all the harder to pay.
It seems to me the way to do would i
ie to levy a tax each year all we can ,
itand, and make our roads good as
ast as we can. Much ot it can be j
lone with our own rock laying along i
tur road side. Many ot them need not!

There have been hundreds and thou-1 i

I was out in Indiana to visit my i
riends, and the Veach's out there are I
ill Democrats, and in their town they i

wonderful complaint of their "ring ]

n our county. I told them that was i
vhat they were charged of doing, i
What perfy did they belong to?" i
'Unfortunately for you they were 1
Democrats," and they had no more to i
lay. Now In this new era it wo live i
ly the rule laid down in these scatterng
remarks wo will never hayo bucIi '

wo old parties are charging each othir
with. Now certain roads are to be

In the midst of all this turmoil.
"The fall of empires and tbe fate of
Itings," we would be pleased to have
a fuw illuminating chunks of worldly
wisdom from Joe Cannon.
The Clarksburg Excornponent recently
stated that Voltaire was born
in month of February. This is about
is near the truth as many of the state
nents we bare heard concerning the
great Frenchman. As a matter of
fact, Voltaire was born November 21.
L684. Perhaps the Clarksburg cauliflower's
years at college resemble
those of Voltaire's, who, referred to
the results by saying be learned "A
little Latin and a Tast amount of nonsense."
When the war is orer, when the
3olden Rule becomes effective, when
cruel codes are repealed and the sermon
on the Mount begins to sway
mankind; when officials use their consciences
during business hours and
hypocrisy is not regarded as one of
the necessaries of life, then, and not
Jutil then can civllliation be regarded
;s something that really exists.
Something like a century a So It
was a common saying In Paris that
"Nations will never be happy until
tings become philosophers or philosophers
kings." How many of the reigning
kings of Europe are philosophers?
Were It not for the accident of birth
how many of them could command attention
by their Intellectual force?
How many of thoic. could be elected
to the West Virginia Legislature?
'The statement that this Is a dry

he was alone.
While at Fulrmont a few days
Binco wo received the important Information
that the weather would beconio

that the new moon In June will be succeeded

high temperature.
From the autobiography of Thomas
Henry Huxley we Belect this gentlo
gleam ot sentiment and sense:
"I lmve been obliged to content myself
through life with saying what I
aiean in the plainest of plain language,
than which,.I 'suppose, there is no habit
more ruinous to a man's prospects of
advancement. Why I was christened
Thomas Hcnr* 1 do not know; but it
Is a curious chance that my parents
Bhould have fixed for my usual denomination
upon the name of that particular
Apostle with whom I have al
ways felt most sympathy."
Elbert Hubbard once gave his
definition of what constitutes greatness.
Here it Is. and if you can improve
it, you should Immediately add
to the Joys of nations by performing
tho task: "He Is great who feeds
ither minds. He is great who inspires
others to think for themselves. He
Is great who tells you the things you
already know, but which you did not
know you know until he told you. Ho
is great who shocks you. Irritates you,
affronts you, so that you are jostled
out of your wonted ways pulled out of
your mental ruts, lifted out of the
nlno ot the commonplace. That writer
is great whom you cannot forget."
Three hundred and seventeen
years since Bruno was burned for
heresy in Rome. Well, we have advanced
some since then, instead of
showing our love for those whose
ogic wc are unable to refute by burning
them for heresy, we employ Billy
Sunday to sit in Judgment and consign
them to eternal woe. Think of
Lhe sublimity of employing a Billy
Sunday to enlighten mankind as to
tho eternal dwelling place of the wisDSt,
bravest and best- As for Bruno,
his perpetual warfare was with darkless
and voluntary blindness and soldiers
to engage in that warfare are
yet urgently needed.

Bat what we hare to think of today is bi
our present conditions. The railroad oi
systems of the country are not suftl- d:
cleat to handle a situation which has
been developing nnder our noses for ft
two years. Their equipment Is lnade- cr
quats, and the whole country 1b suf- ac

inadequacy. It Is as If some necessary jc
function of the body was suddenly nr- cl

in spue or me trememious business I
done by the railroads since the revival!
after the ante-war and war depression,
fewor mllee of track were built
last year than In any year of depression
since 1893. Arizona, Colorado,
Iowa, Missouri. Nebraska, New Mexico,
South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and ?
Wyoming had no additions made to
their trackage, and the increase for i I
i the year In the entire country was less I
than ofie-balf of 1 per cent, of the to-,
tal In operation. Rolling stock ana
equipment were not increased or even
maintained.
Railway securities fell off In prleo
as If business had collapsed and largo
net earnings have not brought them up.
New capital was not flowing Into tills
Industry because there was a general
feeling that Investment In /ailway securities
had a dubious future. Regulation
by forty-eight states and by the
nation, heavy taxation and multiplying
exactions, fear of labor pressure,
and uncertainty as to public policy
checked Investment. The railways In
this vital respect were starving.
If our railways are to bo privately
owned this is an impossible situation.
Capital for expansion must be assured
or the result is deterioration of transport
facilities which will mean deterioration
of all American business.
The railway problem Is the most Important
economic problem before us.
