The eyes of the State an- turned
towards Spotsylvania. After next
Tuesday she will either be adver?
tised through the State press as pro?
gressive or behind the times. If her
citizens, after all that has been said
jwxd .published on the subject, go to
the polls and a ma?k>rity cast their
vote against the bond issue, then the
county will be eliminated from the
good roads movement and those in
terested will turn their attention to
other counties mon1 alive to the
spirit of the times. Between now
and election day ?.'very prominent
m in in Spotsylvania. whose opinion
and influence carry any weight,
should declare himself on the bond
isaue. There should be no dodging,
no shirking, no indecisiveness. This
is a time when Virginia eapeela every
public spirited Spotsylvanian to do
his duty. To vote down the bond
isaue will be. to use the language of
Fouche, Napoleon's celebrated chief
of police, "worse than a crime, it
will be a mistake." And it will
be a mistake n??t easily reme?
died, because all over the Common?
wealth the cry will go forth that the
county of Spotsylvania has proved
herself a stumbling block in the
march of the good roads movement,
which is the march of progress and
prosperity. The pride of the people
should be aroused.there should be no
hesitation, no apathy, no staying
away from the polls, but every man
in favor of the proposition should
be a volunteer worker for its success.
As we said in a recent issue, it is the
"paramount issue" of this fall's cam?
paign, so far as Spotsylvania is con?
cerned. This is the last word this
paper will have an opportunity to say
on the subject. For five years or more
we have hammered away on the neces
aity of doing something to secure
permanent roads. With what suc?
cess our efforts and those of others
interested in the subject have been
expended will be told in next Tues?
day's vote. Our final advice to coun?
ty voters is to vote for the bond issue
and not retard your county's welfare
by lack of nerve. Remember, the
eyes of Virginia are turned in your

Was Six Hours Late and Start?

The Twenty-five Governors snd 177
Congressmen Deserted Boats For the
Railroad to Overtake the President.
Again Left in the Lurch at Green?
Vicksburg. Miss.. Oct 29.? President
Taft ran away from the Mississippi
deep waterway ileet. and part of the
crowd tried investigating the Misais
sippi from the windows of a railroad
train. The twenty-live governors and
Iks 177 congressmen were among
thos?? who deserted the fleet for seats
In Pullman parlor cars. The whole
trouble arose through the bungling of
t)he St. bonis Business Men's League
In arranging the schedule for the trip.
They totik the maximum speed of the
fastest boat In the Taft fleet and the
mlroimum of the slowest, added them
together, divided by two and accepted
the result as an a\*?rage speed for
their running schedule, It never oc?
curred to them that this average was
greater than some of the old stern
wheelers could do.
The governors and the congressrm-n
found themselves hopelessly behind
the president's boat. The president
was scheduled to reach this city at 3
o'clock in the afternoon, and when he
had started out to make his own way
he was six hours late. The governors
and the congressmen knew that Vicks?
burg had made big preparations for
their entertainment, and they were a
mighty peevish lot until after the rail
toad suggestion ?-ccurred to several of
them At that time the governors' boat
was the last In the line. The twenty
?es executives had the pleasure of
watching ea?h of the big tubs pull
past her. The congressmen, however,
were not in a much better shape.
Congressmen as Strap-Hangers.
The governors, congressmen and a
boatload or two of the deep waterway
rooters were dupmed out upon the
Greenville levee, and then there was
a fifteen-minute trolley ride into the
town. Congressmen were hanging by
straps, while many a rear platform
was loaded with governors
Greenville won't ever get over the
excitement. She was not expecting
any distinguished visitors and she al
most tumbled over herself to get a
good look. The special train was wait
ing. and the entire'crowd of congress?
men and governors were landed In this
city. The president arrived on the
lighthouse tender Oleander, seven
hours late. The congresamen and mpf.
ernors had carried out the early pirt
of the program here, and the president
arrived In time to attend a dinner and
deliver a brief address.
The president left again at midnight
on his boat, and at that time the con
gressmen and the governors were
standing on the levee straining their
eyes to catch a glimpse of the lights
on their boats up the river Most of
the congressmen and governors allow?
ed that they would try the water
again, but they were several shades
less enthusiast!?- over the Mississippi
as a deep waterway than they were
before the Junket started.

hoped tli?' executive, Taft, would bring
to the fron.ier a regiment of soldiers
spleinliilly dressed, a good battery Of
artillery and a resplendent staff, but
i.h. tbsre \v.?n a sad I'ontrast. While our
' nt went adorned In his grand
uniform of a general, made In Paris

?hoes and well brushed clothes. Those
of our neighbor were In leggins, yel
low shoes, khaki clothes and. what Is
the worst of all. In 'undershirt.'

opulent wltii the splendor of the poor?
or. might It not have been to signify
the little Importance that they con?
ceded to the ceremony?"
