Albany, Feb. 11. At tho nftcrnoon
cession of the good ronds mcotlng of
the wheelmen, Hon A. It. Choato of
Minneapolis was tho principal speaker.
"Our highway laws contain ovldonco
of all stages of civilization from tho
Elovcnth century down to tho present
"It Ib, of course, Impossible for mo to
particularize In regard to all hodgo
bad patchwork of highway legislation
throughout tho United States. I tako
pleasure, however, in paying rny re
spects to ono law in particular because
It Is probably responsible for mora bad
roads, nnd is more generally In forco
In tho United States than any other
road law. I refer to tho law permitting
tho farmers to work out their road tax
Instead of paying it In money."
The speaker then went on to explain
at length tho origin of the toll tax.
"This Ill-fated old law has been
patched In my own state, and in sonic
other states so as to permit, but not re
quire the farmers not to paytholr road
tax In money. In somo states, I under
stand, the law has, through tho Influ
ence of tho League of American
Wheelmen been abondoncd, very much
to the profit of tho states so doing.
Thcro Is no more vicious law In exist
ence. I would urge that the Leaguo if
American Wheelmen enter politics.

Washington, Feb. 11. As nn illus
tration of tho unfnlr and conscience
less methods that a certain clement
among British millers aro using In tho
effort to stop tho growing Importation
of American flour, United States Con
sul Taney at Belfast has forwarded to
Mio department of stato oxtracts from
Irish trado papers making tho broad
chnrgo that all of tho American flour
Is adulterated. According to this ro
ranrknblo statement tho adulterant Is
cornmcal, which is so finely ground as
to defy detection when mixed with
flour. Tho very whiteness 'and purity
of our flour is cited In proof of tho
chargo, for it is said that as the Brit
ish millers can make only yellow flour
from Indian wheat, tho Americans
must add tho cornmeal, which is of n
blulBh tint, as a corrective" to make
their flour white. The consul sayB this
sort of argument Is used In different
