SEEK AGAIN FOR GOOD ROAD LEVY FEDERATION DISCUSSES PLANS, BUT THINKS SPECIAL TAX BEST MEANS. DESIRE- FOR GOOD ROADS IS STRONG Ohio Leads All of the States In Valuo of Its Clay Products Car Short age Facing Mine Operators. Columbus. Aids through tlio state legislatures 'by tho means of a direct levy for tho Improvement and main tenance ofthc wagon roads of Ohio waB advocated at tho annual mooting of tho Ohio Good Roads federation held in this city. There was a disposition expressed to continue tho fight for road improve ment despite defeat of the constitu tional amendment. While various plans were proposed to raise money, including that of J. S. Coxey of Masslllon and Mt. Vernon, to issue bonds of ?100,000,000 bearing interest not to exceed one-half of 1 per cent per annum, exempt from tax ation and to be held as legal reserves of banks, organized under state laws, the concensus of opinion was that the plan of a direct levy through legisla tive act was tho most feasible. Desire for Roads Strong. In his retiring address, President A. H. Huston" of Columbus made a state ment that no other state has a so well founded desire for good roads as Ohio. The following officers were elected : Jesse Taylor, Jamestown, president; P. A. Selberllng, Akron, vice presi dent; Henry Vottreld, Toledo, second vice president; A. P. Sandles, Ottawa, fourth vice president; John N. Willys, Toledo, fifth vice president; David Dunham, Lebanon, sixth vice presi dent; H. K. Laird, Columbus, secre tary; B. S. Humphrey, Cleveland, treasurer; W. A. Alsdorf, Johnstown, state superintendent; Smith W. Den nett. Columbus, counsel. The Ohio State university and other institutions of tho stato containing engineering departments will be urged to put into their curriculum a course of study relating to road building and maintenance. Ohio Leads In Clay Products. Ohio led all of the states in the value of its clay products during 1911 by rolling up a total of $32,603,895. Pennsylvania was second with a total value of $20,272,033; New Jersey was third with ?18,178,228; Illinois was fourth with $14,333,011, and New York fifth with $10,181,370. Of these five states only Ohio and New Jersey showed a gain in value of output over 1910, the Increase in this state being $1,687,573 and in New Jersey $343, 919. The total value of all clay prod ucts marketed In the United States last year was $162,236,181, a decrease of $7,879,793 from the value of such products for 1910, when it was $170, 115,974. Of the two great divisions of the in dustry, brick and tile and pottery, the pottery trade showed an Increase. The decrease In the brick and tile Indus try wbb $8,613,075; the Increase in the pottery industry was $733,882. Shortage of Cars. Columbus. Shortage of cars is the main agency tbat is preventing the coal mines of the state of Ohio from operating full time at tho present, ac cording to President John Moore of the Ohio miners. All of the mines are working -part time, ho says, and the majority of them would be work ing full time If the railroad companies could furnish sufficient cars to move tho coal. In the eastern part of the state Mr. Moore says that there Is a 'scarcity of miners to man tho mines, but ho deolared that the' total output of the Ohio mines this year will equal, If not exceed, that of last year. Will Start Branches. The liability board of awards has decided to establish a branch office in Cincinnati. This move, In the opinion of tho board members, marks the be ginning of a big increase In tho 'busi ness of tho department and it Is ex pected that branches will soon be started In tho othor large cities. Branches are considered necessary for tho convenience of contributing em ployers, tho holding of board sessions, tho providing of adequate facllltlqs for proof of claims by Injured workmen, nnd far tho effective prosecution Qf tho board's work. Cincinnati. Conrad Plund, aged 52, a baker of Mt. Healthy, O., died In a hospital in this city from a stab wound, said by the man shortly be fore ho died, to' havo been Inflicted by hla falling Fn a knife. His wife was arrested nnd charged with cutting, but wns released Bhortly afterwards on $1,000 ball. Want Board Wiped Out. Secretary W. C. Arthur of the state liability board of awards has an nounced ho had positive Information Unit Indemnity insurance companies were backing a bill to be presented to the next goneral assembly wiping out tho state board and making it compul sory for employers to buy insurance from corporations engaged in that business. The plan, it; is contended, would provide compensation for in jured workmen, but it would rial bo handled by tho stato and the stale '.control would be thus wiped out, To Fight White Plague. Columbus. In a proclamation just Issued by " Gov, Harmon, Sunday, Oct. 27, is designated "Tubercu losis Day," and tho peoplo of Ohio are asked to observe it as such. Phil anthropic organizations and individ uals are urged to aid tho movement to stamp out this disease, which an nually destroys 200,000 in tho United States. Tho governor's proclamation is aB follows: "Tho terrlblo ravages of tubercu losis in tho United States, destroying, as It does,. 200,000 persons each year, has led to organized fight in tills coun try looking toward its extinction. Sci entific research has disclosed Its pre vention, and, under favorable condi tions, the curOj Societies havo been formed over the' world to. combat this plague, rightly called tho greatest of nil the ills which destroy human life. ''This should bo followed by general Information 'on tho part of our peoplo as to Its cnuso and methods by which its fearful work may ' bo conquered. In tills way alone can this monster, which every year consumes thousands of lives, millions of money, untold physical suffering and misery, be finally stamped "out. "To tho end that Ohio may earnest ly engage in this most laudable ef fort, all philanthropic organizations and all individuals are requested to observe Sunday, Oct. 27, 1912, desig nated as Tuberculosis Day, In spread ing every form of information as to the character, prevention and cure of tuberculosis." ' Circulars Sent Broadcast. Columbus. Through a state-wide campaign, tho Ohio Society for the Prevention of Tuberculosis Is carry ing out a policy of health education by which it plans to reach personally each pupil in the public schools of the state. The preliminary work was be gun two weeks ago and tho .malls have been flooded with circulars which are to'be posted in all public schoolrooms in the state. The details of the work have been arranged at the local office of tho so ciety under the supervision of Dr. Rob ert G. Patterson, executive secretary. Co-operating with him are school su perintendents of the Btate. Posters will be mailed to the cities and the county districts and distributed by teachers. In all counties when there are tuberculosis leagues the members of these organizations also will be asked to assist. Advice on Placards. The placards proclaim In huge let ters that consumption is not Inherited, but is contracted mainly through the spread of germs by persons afflicted. A list of "don'ts" reads: Do not put pins In your mouths, put anything in your, mouths but foods and drink, put pencils in your mouths or wet them with your lips, swap apple cores, candy, or chewing gum or any thing that is put into your mouths. Do not spit except In spittoons, or in a handkerchief which can ie burned. Never spit on a slate, floor, sidewalk, or playground. Never cougli or sneeze without covering your mouth. Koep your hands -and face clean and wash your bands before- each meal. To kep your health you should havo plenty of fresh air in the room where you sleep. When you do not feel well or haVe been hurt report to the teacher. Miller to Aid Camplagn. In all, 16,000 posters aro being dh tributed and the members of the so ciety hope, with these staring from the walls of the schoolrooms, to inter est tho children in taking be'tter cave of themselves. Other plans are to be worked out from time to time, while instructions in hygiene will be given. School Commissioner Miller also has taken an active part in the new campaign and declares he will do everything he can. to further it. May Test Opinion in Court. It has been learned that suit muy be started soon to test tho correct ness of Attorney General Hogan's opinion to State Insurance Superin tendent Moore and the state liability board of awards, that an Insurance company cannot contract in Ohio to indemnify an employer from tho result of injuries occasioned by his willful act or' from his failure to observe tho laws for tho protection of tho life and safety of employes. Nearly every company operating in tho state has protested that tho opln ioni3 not correct and that adoption of tho requirements as broad as embod ied In the order would drive them out of the state and preclude many mil lion dollars' worth of business. Gas People to Fight. Natural gas companies probably will resist In tho courts obedienco to an opinion rendered by Attorney General Hogan to the state tax commission that gas piped Into Ohio- from other states, and distributed in this state shall bo considered intrastate com merce and bo taxed. The companies distributing West Verglnla and Indi ana gas havo claimed exemption on tho ground they are doing in Inter state business. The attorney general's ruling, if sus tained, will add many thousand dol lars to the tax duplicate. Young Soldier Arrested. ' Columbus. Kelly Robinson, 22, of Jackson, Ky., was arrested at the Co lumbus barracks by city detectives and held for Kentucky officials on four charges, which include jail breaking and murder. Escape of tho young man from a Kentucky Jail is said to havo been spectacular. Whllo visited by his father, ho was allowed tho free dom of the corridor and, taking ad vantage or tho situation, ho overpow ered hio jailer and went to West Vir ginia. He was detained ut the bar racks Tending. Inquiry, THE HIGH COST MEN MAKE IRES PROSPERITY CAN BE ADVERSELY AFFECTED BY DEMOCRATIC FREE TRADE LAWS. PLAIN TRUTH FOR FARMERS Statement That Good Times Will Con tinue, No Matter Who Is Elected, Is Shown to Be False, Because Legis lation Affects Prices of Farm Prod ucts. In a recent lsuue of Successful Farm ing, under the heading "A Popularity Contest," there appeared among oth er things this paragraph: "This Is the year of our Lord 1912, when the farmers push back the ex cited and noisy politicians and say 'Go chaso yourself. You can't mako prosperity any more than you can make rain or sunshine. Tho goods you are talking about are adulterated with ninety-nine jor cent selfishness and political rot. We've got tho gen uine .over In our tent. Good-bye.' " Tho paragraph was written in good faith, doubtless by one who honestly believes tho prosperity of this country will not bo In any way affected, no matter how tho election goes in No vember. That was precisely the position taken by the Democratic orators and newspapers In 1892. That was a year of most, bountiful crops, It will be re membered, and good prices. Facto ries wero running full force, capital was eagerly seeking Investment, labor was fully employed. In a word, It was tho most prosperous year the country had known up to that time. The Re publicans tried to make the people be lieve that they ought not to endanger that prosperity by changing political management. But they were jeered then as the above paragraph In Suc cessful Farming Jeers them now. "Prosperity is a gift of God nnd not of politicians," the Republicans were1 told, and thoy were accused of a sort of blasphemy for attempting to argue that a Democratic "victory might bring disaster. As a matter of fact nobody expected a Democratic victory, so business went booming right along un til election day, But when Ifbecamo known that Cleveland had been elected and would havo a Democratic congress with him pledged to reduce tho tariff, there camo about an Immediate change over the wholo face of (ho business world. Manufacturers did not daro fill their warehouses full of goods which might havo to compote with similar articles of foreign make. Jobbers and whole salers .restricted their orders to im mediate noods, whllo all over the country retailers bought from day to day becauso they did not want their hhelvcs filled with high-priced goods when tho low-priced' flood came in. And so It happened that although the now tariff bill was not passed for more than a year after Cleveland's election, the panic began nt once. Not what the Democratic party actually did but what it was threatening to do brought about the condition of uncer tainty in the. Industrial world which simply paralyzed the business of the COL. ROOSEVELT'S TESTIMONY Wilson's Election Would Mean Nation wide Ruin, According to Former , President's Prediction. In tho Outlook for July 27, 1912, Colonel Roosevelt predicted that Woodrow Wilson's eloctlon would pro duco a panic nnd a disaster that would bo nation-wide. Ho said: "If Dr.' Wilson wero eloctod, would either have to repudiate tho promises m&do about the, tarlftin tho OF LiVING-IN 1904 : country and from that paralysis It did not-recover for four years. Can Successful Farming give a guar antee that the history of 1892 would not be -repeated In 1912 It a Demo cratic victory should come? Tho Dem ocratic house In the present congress passed tariff blllB affecting the duties on thirteen billion dollars' worth of American products in the making of which aro employed .four million American worklngmen. Fortunately for the country these bills were vetoed by a courageous Republican president. But If a president should bo elected who would not veto them and con gress should again pass them, does Successful Farming think the bUBlnesB of the country would go booming right along just as If nothing wore im pending? Would manufacturers go ahead piling up goods for future sale witli the certainty that they would have to meet competition from goods made In other countries under a wage scale one-half or one-fourth that of our own? "Prosperity Is a gift of God," says Successful Farming. If that Ib true, why was God's grace withdrawn from this country from 1893 to 1897? In point of fact it was not withdrawn. The earlier and the later rains fell as usual, the soil was just as fertile, the peoplo were Just as industrious and the crops wero just as bountiful as in the preceding four years,, and yet the price of farm products during theso four Cleveland years fell off in tho aggregato to four billion five hundred million dollars compared with what the same crops would have brought if sold at tho prices which provalled during tho preceding Harrison admin istration. That 1b to any, tho penalty which tho farmers of America paid for four years of Democratic administra tion was equal to one and one-half times tho cost of the Civil war. Bountiful crops are Indeed in a very largo measure "tho gift of God." But God does not look after tho mar kets. That is man's business. And It ia markets which really determine tho prosperity of tho farmer. It ia not what he pays for what ho buys, but what he gets for what he sells that determines his success or failure, and the price the farmer gets for the things he has to sell depends la larg est measure upon the purchasing pow er of his customer. Men who are sleeping in city halls and eating at public soup houses do not make profitable customers for tho farmer. Nobody can say absolutely, of courso, that Democratic victory in 1912 would mean the same as Demo cratic victory in 1892; and nobody can absolutely guarantee that Republican success will mean a continuation of the good times prevailing now. But' on which sido do the chances Ho? Is there any particular reason why Domocratlc victory on a similar plat form to that adopted In 1892 should not bring about eondltlons that pre vailed then? And can any plausible reason bo given why a continuation of tho Republican party should alarm UubIiiobb or In any way affect tho prosperous conditions that now pre vail? When Successful Farming positive ly declares "No matter which party Ib f victorious tho good ship of state will ride the seas in safety bocnuso of bountiful crops on farms," It Ib giv ing its readers assurances for which there Is no moro substantial backing than one man's opinion and upon the validity of which tho history of the past casts gravo doubt. Democratic platform or elso bring ev ery Industry In the country to a crash which would mako all panics in our past hlBtory seem llko child's play in comparison. In short, were Dr. Wilson elected on this platform, he would bo obliged at tho vory outset of his administration to faco tho al ternatives of dishonesty or disaster, tho alternatives of refusing to carry out tho exprosaod pledges of tho plat- he ! form, or else of causing such disarm ter to every worker in tho country as would, mean natlop-wldo, ruin."
