What the expenditure of $2,000,00-0 on Wayne county roads in Michigan did for the city of Detroit is being urgej locally as an example of what the Lincoln highway will be able to do for South Pend. Fifteen years ago the country roads out Michigan, Grand River, Gratiot and even Wood ward avs. were simply horrible at all seasons of the year, and virtually im passable in the spring. Extensions of E. and W. Fort sts. were similarly effected. Eighty miles of good roads have been built on these thorough fares, some strips 2 3 miles in length, and it Is reported that they were the beginning of Detroit's big boom that started with their completion. The old roads were due to a mucky soil and the vicinity was without available Band, say nothing of gravel, with which to remedy it The Im proved roads are accordingly of con crete, similar to that proposed for the Lincoln highway through this county. It makes of Detroit a great center for automobile tourists, adding greatly to the patronage of Detroit merchants and hotels, and due to the easy travel ln getting to market, the farms about the "City of the Straits" are said to have increased in value all the way from 15 per cent upward to as high as 50. South Pond's Rotter Chance. So far as tourists are concerned, it is insisted that South Rend would profit more from the Lincoln highway than Detroit does from its efforts, the Lincoln highway being a cross-country thoroughfare, while Detroit's good roads are local and not connected up with any long strip leading to any where for the present not even to Toledo. Detroit was recently guest for a week to good roads advocates from all over the country, who came there to see how they did it, and how it was lasting. Some investigators came from as far as California. Fully 5.0 0Q are reported to have been at the meet ing. A letter urging believers in good roads to get out and vote has been sent out from the Chamber of Com merce, and every effort is being mado to have the project carry. Farmers along the 11-mile strip are said to be equally active among the farmers, but it is asserted that it will probably de pend upon South Bend as to whether or not the proposition will pass. When you read the proposition on the bal lot, the thing to do is to vote "Yes," according to these advocates, and they are brim full of reasons "Why."

June, 1917, Un der Heavy Penalty. An , ordinance requiring that all Carolina poplars ana willow trees along the streets in the city of South Bend where there are sewers shall be destroyed by June 1, 1917, under penalty of $50 fine; an ordinance ap propriating $2,000 to the cemetery fund of the board of public works, despite that the sexton is now em ployed on a salary, and the board in making the change, asserted that the cemetery would be self-supporting; these and a resolution directing the board of public works to provide pro tection for the public on Vistula av., where sidewalks are being built, or the street is torn up, were the chief accomplishments of the common council at its Monday night session. An ordinance establishing sewer districts and providing for making and enforcing sewer connections, and a resolution directing that all streets within the fire limits and all paved streets throughout the city be flushed every night during the summer months, were sent to the committee in the "hole." Aside from this Councilman Buech ner has raised the question, and President Lang has sustained him, that the common council has no right to suggest things to the board of public works, or any other depart ment of the city government; virtual ly that the representatives of the people, elected as councilmen, though vested by law with the power of Im peachment, making appropriations, approving budgets and contracts and meeting in the "hole," are to serve as mere "mummies" with regard to noticing a department's mistakes. City Makes Ills Iroiit. "Sexton Urey of the city cemetery, in addressing the council two weeks ago," said Councilman Hagerty, "told us that the city is now buying grave vaults in carload lots at $8; that dig ging the grave, placing the vault and filling the grave, perfecting a burial, Is worth about $5 more, making a total of $13. Then the city sells these vaults, and tho work for $28, a profit of more than 100 percent. I think that is too much. The amount should be reduced." "We have no right to dictate to the board of public works ln such mat ters," said Councilman Buechner. "And, anyway, that profit went to the sexton under the former administra tion." "I am not presuming to dictate to the board of works," said Councilman Hagerty. "I merely suggest, or would recommend it." "I agree with Councilman Hagerty." said Councilman Seifert, "that $28 is too much for a city to charge; that $15 is too large a profit on an invest ment of $13. It seems to me that $20, which would be $7 profit, would be enough." "I agree with Councilman Buech ner." said Pres. Lang. "We have no right to dictate to the board of work's, and besides the sexton under the previous administration charged $2S and put the profit in his own pocket, under the fee system that employed him." "It is true that the former sexton took his pay in fees; collected it from cemetery lot owners, and maybe he was not limited in his charges as he should have been, but I would like to know if it is any worse for the in dividual to overpay himself than it is for the city. If it "is graft ln one case it is in the other," said Hatrerty. City a Inferred" Grafter. "I don't think it is as bad for the city," was the president's comment. Everything is measured by what the former administration did; to suggest an improvement by anyone connected with that administration, is labeled by the "citizens" in the Hurwich Gash Grocery The Place to Save Money r, Specialist In Chronkj Disease? of Men and Women.

"I movf von," Councilman Hagerty then came back, "that the board of ; works investigate the pitfall? alon ' Vistula av., where sidewalks are be- insc built, and no railings or red- j lights belnsr displayed, and see that the negllcrence Is corrected." The board of public works has an inveterate defender in Councilman Buechner and Pres. Lang. "I under stand that the situation of which the councilman complains is the work of the street car company. Why don't he go after the street car company?" said Councilman Buechner. "I am not Koing after anybody," said Hagerty. "I merely offer a reso lution that the board of works, which haa charge of such matters, correct the error wherever it lie?." By some "happenstance" this reso lution carried. "Now the council minutes, as ap proved by this body, show that two weeks ago I made a motion here that the board of public works Feo that the city hall is kept clean, and that the clerk inform that body that such is our wish," Councilman Hagerty went on. "The records of that body show that on the following day that body passed a resolution to the effect that I had charged 'Michael Thomaska with being inefficient,' and that there fore he is discharged. I never said anything of the kind; never charged Mike Thomaska with anything, and tho statement ln these records are not true, and I move you that this body request of the board of works that the records of that body be correct ed." "The motion Is out of order," said Pres. Lang, and that ended it. He commented that he would hence forth hold that the council had no right to interfere with the other de partments of the city government. Try NEWS-TIMES WANT ADS FSA'tLORS GREAT- BARGAINS!
