REPUBLICAN CONGRESS MARKING TIME
TOPICS 14 BRIEF
"Joshua commanded the sun to stand still in order that he
might fight the battles of the Lord, and the sun obeyed. Will Hays,
the chairman of the Republican National Committee, has command
ed this congress to stand still for the purpose of political expediency,
and it has obeyed."
This was the assertion made on the floor of the house by Rep
resentative Robert L. Doughton in attacking the failure of the Re
publican majority to aid the farmer to feed the world by carrying
out the rural good roads program initiated by recent Democratic
Mr. Doughton pointed out the "vital connection between good
roads and farming and the still more vital connection between farm
ing and the high' cost of living," and denounced a "penny-wise and
pound-foolish- economy bound to work great injury to the entire
country," asserting that "what we need to do is to encourage and
stimulate and not discourage those engaged in the most important
of all pursuits, that of raising food for our own people and the
hungry nations of the world.
He pointed out that the Democratic sixty-third congress in
augurated a comprehensive good roads program providing federal
aid for states that agreed to stand a proportionate share of eon
struction, and that the last congress, also Democratic, had increased
the total to the extent of $275,000,000 being available during the
period of 1917-21. ly contrast he asserted that the present Repub
lican congress has done nothing, and in addition has held up a bill
directing the Avar department to turn over to the highway authori
ties of the various states road making material, machinery, etc
"It would be interesting to know why this legislation has been
so long delayed," said Mr. Doughton. "Is it possible that it is be
ing strangled for political expediency, or has the Republican nation
al chairman given orders that it musf be killed by long delay! If
this kind of tactics is to be continued by a Republican congress, then
Mr. Hays will need to offer more than $10,000 for some one who can
write a satisfactory platform, and need to appoint a larger advisory
committee than that already appointed, containing 171 members.
You need not be deceived, the people will not be mocked.
"The farmers of the country know what party has given them
substantial relief by the enactment of .numerous pieces of legisla
tion and so forth, bringing more favorable conditions to those en
gaged in agriculture. But when they ask relief or help in any way
of this congress they are confronted with the response that every
thing most be subordinated to 'economy.' When the people ask
bread they are given a stone.
"Political expediency is the governing policy of this congress
and has been since the day it first assembled. Instead of consider
ing first the needs of all the people, the needs of the Republican
party in the coming campaign are given the right of way.
"As the matter now stands the last appropriation for carrying
on the work of road building expires at the end of the fiscal year
1 1921, and the department of agriculture and the bureau of roads do
1 not know whether to go ahead with plans for the future. If this
I congress intends to continue the splendid work now in progress it
j should by appropriate legislation extend the present road, building
plan, or one similar, for a period of at least three years so the burr au
j of roads can go ahead with its work.

SUFFRAGISTS NEED THREE MORE STATES
Thirty-three states have 'ratified the woman suffrage amend
ment, and thirty-six are needed.
The matter came before the house of delegates of West Virginia
yesterday, and as that state is favorably disposed, the amendment is
expected to pass both houses early this week.
Sentiment is favorable in the state of Washington, and strong
hope is entertained of favorable action in Vermont, Connecticut,
Delaware and North Carolina. Tennessee, which has granted wom
an's suffrage in presidential and municipal elections, is prohibited
by its constitution from acting on the amendment for another year.
The states that have rejected the" amendment, or which the suf
fragists regard as hopeless, are Mississippi, Alabama, Virginia, South
Carolina, Maryland, Georgia, Louisiana and Florida.

There is no merit in the contention that there is no road at
present across the state of Nevada to enable westbound tourists to

able for its improvement the present year.
A comprehensive advertising campaign for this route should be
undertaken without further delay. :PIacerville Mountain Democra.
