Congress Will Pass a Good Roads Meas ure if People Will Push Their Good Cause Highway conditions in the United States are deplorably bad. Everybody at all capable of thought realizes that in compar ison with older countries, over whose civilization we boast su Derioritv. we stand in a most disgraceful attitude in the mat ter of road building and improve ment. The reasons why we have bad roads almost univer sally are that the people of the rural districts have been forced to bear the whole burden of road making, and this they have not been able to do in any better way than has been done. The time has come in the history of our country when the govern ment must take hold of the mat ter, and the Brownlow-Latimer good roads bill points the way: The conclusion is irresistible that to secure a permanent and ade quate system of highway im provement the national govern ment must lend its substantial aid to the states, following the same principle (of necessity and justification as the support given to railways, waterways, postal extensions, irrigation, exposi tions, national parks, experi mental stations, weather bu reaus, and many other useful internal improvements. It is too much to expect, as we have been doing, the local communi ties to construct and maintain permanent roads. The burden is too great and wholly unjust. The public roads are the com mon property of all, used by all, and their cost ana maintenance should be shared by all. Noth ing can be truer than that the towns, cities and commercial and industrial interests share equally with the rural districts in the benefits derived from per manent roads. Congress meets again in December. The bills ' for national aid will then be again introduced. Representa tive Brownlow, Senator Latimer, Senator Gallinger and others are , as much in earnest as can be, but they must be supported by popular appeals to other senators and representatives individually and to congress as a body. Right now is the time when every commercial body, every highway commissioner, every farmer and agricultural organi zation, every church, school and and university, every business • man, every labor union, every member of the press and every transportation interest should get to work in organized and in dividual effort for an adequate and permanent system of roads. If this is well done, the coming congress will act on the nation al aid bills, and we shall soon have beautiful highways, bring ing in closer communion the the church, the school, the store the postoffice, the place of social concourse and amusement, mak ing easier the way for righteous ness, intelligence, contentment and prosperity. A. postal card request to a United States Senator will secure to any citizen a copy of Senate Document No. 204, Second Ses sion, Fifty-Eighth Congress, and a similar request to Hon. W. P. Brownlow, Washington, D. C., will bring a copy of his bill, his and Senator Latimer’s speeches, ahd other literature on the sub ject of good roads. J . .COUNTRY . . t J CORRESPONDENCE, i _ ELGIN.

Gould Roads to Be Merged Under One Name of Missouri Pacific as Recently Forecasted.
