MEANDSEE ! BODYCO BY CHANCELLOR D. L. LANSDEN To my mind there is no other subject, unless it is -that of education, that so vitally affects the, interest of the State as a whole as that of good roads. Ten nessee, and especially that part of Ten nessee which is least developed, must depend upon its agricultural develop ment for itKaf&ure prosperity, and the greatness of the State will depend upon the thrift and happiness of the small farmer in the rural districts. Good roads will contribute, more to the happi ness and convenience and, consequently. the contentment of our rural population, than any other one thing. It removes the isolation that usually makes the farm life unattractive to the farmer's boys and girls. It relieves farm life of its ordinary drudgery, and makes inter communication between members of tho country neighborhood easier, and, therefore, more frequent and natural, and necessarily permits social inter course between the country and the town. In fact, good roads will give the country resident all the conveniences of town life, and, at the same time, pre serve to him the comforts of the country Of course, in addition to these matters, there is the business view to be taken of good roads. The saving in the cost of transportation to the country farmer, as well as the saving in time for himself "and his teams and wagons is something enormous. I daresay but few people have an adequate understanding of what his amount would be to the farmers of Tennessee if it could be expressed in dollars and cents. In commerce transportation is every thing. We have the markets, we have the products, but in the majority of Tennessee counties the profits are all given in the effort to bring the products to- the market. A small margin saved in the price of any product very often represents the difference between a profit and a loss, and business men all understand the importance of having every transactio" show a profit, however small it may be. When the savings to the people on these lines are compared with the cost of building the roads, the expense of road-making is inconse quential The only difficulty that has been in the way is in 'bringing the people to know that these savings are real, but4ndirect, and not money di rectly out of pocket. - It has been more difficult for the people to appreciate the real loss sustained by inadequate trans portation while to- build good roads must be done by taxation, and that. taking money directly out of pocket, makes them hesitate to vote money for roads. I think the building of roads, the ini provement of our schools, and gener ally, the advancement of the conditions under which the great majority of our people must live, are the questions that should, and will, engage the thought of our real statesmen.

The Census Work. No one can doubt that President Taft is desirous of having the sensus of 1910 made as accurate as possible and that the census work should not in any re spect be affected by political or partisan influence. His letter to the Secretary of the Department of Commerce and Labor indicates this desire and his de termination to divest tho census work of political significance and bias. He says in this letter that tho census sys tern "can easily be perverted to politi cal purposes if the supervisors are not forbidden to use it as an instrument for iiirl uencing local and general elections and primaries in the interest of partic ular candidates or parties," and he orders that in the regulations for tak- ng the census prepared by the Depart ment, a provision shall be embodied that "any supervisor or enumerator who uses his influence with his sub ordinates or colleagues to assist any party or a candidate in a primary or general election, or who takes any part, other than merely casting his vote, in politics, national, State or local, either by service upon a political committee. by public address, by the solicitation of votes or otherwise, shall at once be dis missed from the service." This is a highly commendable order and should be rigidly enforced, but it seems apparent that while it represents the true spirit and desire of the Presi dent, it was suggested by the fact that the President had been swerved by lead ing men of his party from his original intention of making the appointments of supervisors less narrowly confined to one political party.' In other words, it seems that the President has been in duced to take more into consideration the accustomed party policy in making those appointments than he would have done had he followed his personal inch nations without the pressing advice of party leaders. Nevertheless, in follow ing more closely the party custom, he feels it necessary to emphasize his idea of non-political influence in the census work, and to impress upon the super visors he has appointed and will appoint that they should not misinterpret the favor he has shown them as calling for any party service whatever, and to warn them that they will subject themselves to immediate dismissal if they make themselves active in any way in politics while holdin? their offires The President's letter, however, would have been more strongly to the point and more in line with the true idea -of a non-partisan service if he had advised supervisors, in making their appoint ments of enumerators, to select the most capable men of character, with out regard to their political affiliations, A supervisor may avoid taking any active personal part in political cam paigns and selections and yet show po litical favor and work for political or factional ends in making appointments of enumerators. The men who per form the important work of enumer ation and gathering statistical informa tion should be selected solely for their personal fitness and efficiency without regard to political affiliations.
