Building Program
Bloomington, 111., Aug. 4. Illinois, i
rt,; month h Inunrhed the most stu-
pendous program of rqad building in
the history of the world. It com
prises 5,000 miles of vast trunk line
. vstpm. connecting nil of the impor
' . ...... i
tant cities, and the cost will be $60,
000,000. Not a cent of it will be
borne by public taxation. The tin li
cense tags at the front and rear of
every motor vehicle tell the story of
the financing. There are now 600,000
automobiles and trucks in Illinois.
The license fees will produce aboiit
$7,000,000 per'Vinnum. In 20 years it
will be sufficient to pay off the princi
pal and interest of the bond issue of
$60,000,000, which guarantees the pay
ment for construction.
Plan Attracts Attention
The Illinois plan, first suggested a
year ago, and which was approved by
the voters at the polls November 5
last, a majority of 509,000 being given
the proposition, has attracted nation
wide attention, and similar move
ments have been launched in Arkan
sas, Missouri, Georgia and other
States, with liklihood of favorable ac
tion. .
In years gone by Illinois expendod
about $7,000,000 per annum for road
improvement through the medium of

ary in character. The same old mud
holes received these millions, and the
THililic waste became the subject of a
campaign of reform launched by the
.good roads and motor vehicles asso
ciations. The advent of the automo
bile brought a new understanding of
highway problems. It was realized
that the city man, driving his car for
pleasure or on business tnrougn a ru
ral community, should bo made to pay
a part of the expense of maintaining
the roads traversed. It was argued
that it was unfair to saddle all of the
expense upon the townships.
Patchwork Roads Before
Illinois boasts of 96,000 miles of
highway. Seven years ago, 16,000
miles of the most important were set
aside for improvement by co-operation
between the State and county.
The legislature agreed to pay one-half
of the cost of building hard roads and
also permanently maintain them af
ter construction. This was the first
movement in behalf of good roads,
but there were disadvantages through
lack of uniformity and co-ordination,
and it wu found that thero could be
no stretches of trunk lines across tne
State, but simply a patch-work sys
tem of good and bad roads. A tourist
who found a stretch of good roads in
one county was apt to find that it
connected with a bottomless mudhole
in the adjoining.
In this crisis the proposal was made
that a higher unit be established un
der State control, that it be construct
ed by a State bond issue, and that the
routes be selected by the legislature.
Gov. Frank O. Lowden opposed a bond
issue which would require additional
taxation. A compromise was then
effected by which the license fee for
motor cars was increased sufficient
to take care of the bond issue. The
owners of automobiles and trucks ap
proved the idea and there has been
no opposition.
Bond Issue Popular
The campaign in behalf of the bond
issue was supported not only by the
motorists, but by bankers, merchants,
farmers, workingmcn, women's clubs
in fact, all interests. Now, one year
after the campaign was first launched,
tangible results are being seen. There
has been delay, due to the scarcity of
labor and the high price and scarcity
of materials. With the return of the
soldiers, the former handicap has
been alleviated, and the work is ac
tually underway. Illinois will soon en
joy the unique distinction of a com
plete highway commission, with the
State building and controlling the
main roads, the counties and town
ships controlling the feeders or later
als. The cost is borne by all of the
people, those of the city as well as
those of the country, but only by peo
ple who own motor vehicles. The
State realizes that the city and coun
try are interdependent, and that each
contributes to the well being and pros
perity of the other. The social, edu
cational and healthful advantages of
good roads are so apparent that this
point requires no exploitation or dis
cussion. Their economic worth is a
thing that Illinois has just learned.
Amortization Plan Safe
Financiers assert that the amorti
zation plan by which the bonds and
the interest are to be liquidated is
absolutely safe. What Illinois has
done, other States can do, with, of
course, varying modifications to con
form to local conditions, and to meet
local requirements. The Illinois plan
holds fair to. become universal as its
merits are realized. The distinctive
feature is the scheme by which the
motor license fees take care of the
principal and interest. This year,
cars of 10 horse power or less pay a
license fee of 84.50. Next year and
thereafter it will be $6. Cars of
horsepower between 10 and 25 now
nav SR. Next vear the fee will be $8.
A proportionate increase is fixed for
larger type of machines. Motorcy
cles have been taxed $3. Next year
the fee will be $4. The smaller type
of electric cars now pay $10. Next

year they must pay $12. The larger
typo of electric cars now pay $20.

Next vear the rate will be $25. Own
era of cars have cheerfully acquiesced
in the increase when they found that
every dollar would be devoted to a
permanent system of road improve
ment. Much Credit Due Edcns
To William G. Edens of Chicago,
president of the Illinois Highway Im
provement Association, is due a large
measure of the credit for the success
ful campaign in behalf of a State-aid
road system and the payment through
license fees.
Through his understanding of the
local sentiment in all of the counties of
the State, his wide acquaintance
among all groups of citizens and his
ability to eliminate all semblance of
politics in his selection of committees,
the good roads campaign was general
ly conceded to be the most thoroughly
organized and most successful and
important volunteer movement in the
history of the Commonwealth. The
association, of which he is the head,
is one of the most disinterested and
unselfish bodies of men ever banded
together in the furtherance of public
interprise In Illinois. Every semb
lance of special interest has been rig
idly excluded from active participa
tion in the organization. It has no
ax to grind, no one interest to further
and is under obiigntions to no one.
Officers Serve Without Pay
Its officers serve without pay. In
addition to President Edens, there are
numerous other faithful promoters of
the good roads movement, and they
are receiving the gratitude of a united
citizenship and will be honored by
posterity.
The bulk of the roads now under
construction will be of concrete, laid
unon crushed stone. In many instanc
es, for a mile or two adjoining the
principal cities, where the traffic is of
the heaviest, bncK win De used ior
the upper surfacing, with a bed of
concrete. As yet, there has been no
convict labor requisitioned. In 1913,
the legislature adopted a law, request
ed by Gov. Dunne, permitting the em
ployment of prisoners under the hon
or system. One day is commuted
from the sentence of each prisoner for
every three devoted to road work. In
miscellaneous road work for a num
ber of years, several thousand con
victs have been utilized and it is ex
pected that a large number will be
employed in building the $60,000,000
trunk iiM -system just inaugurated.
The utilization of convicts will be
governed to some extent by the labor
situation. If it is found that the work
is lagging through scarcity or men,
the Drison doors will be opened. Ev
ery effort will be made to complete
tne D,uuu miles as exjieuiuuusiy ua
possible. The main lines will be con
nected with other stretches of hard
roads bv laterals extending to adja
cent towns and hamlets. In 20 years
it is hoped that 50 per cent of the
roads of tho State will be improved,
equalling the record of Massachusetts
at the present time. Illinois is now
forced to admit that only 10 per cent
of her highways have been macadam
ized.
TRUE ECONOMY
IN ROAD BUILDING
In his office near the top of the
Woolworth building, New York, Mr.
Clifford Richardson, for many years
the Kederal Asphalt Expert of the
District of Columbia and prooaoiy tne
greatest living authority on Asphalt
Pavements, threw added light on the
question of good roads constructipn
today.
Mr. Richardson has for several
years made a special study and in
vestigation of roads, both in this coun
try and in Europe, and has reserved
any comment on the Bubject until he
felt that all his statements could be
borne out by actual facts and his opin
ions substantiated by experience.
"The ideal road," said Mr. Richard
son, "is not obtained by the use of
any one material alone, but is the
combination of the best known road
building materials, devoting each to
the purpose for which it is intended
by nature."
"In other words, the base of Port
land Cement Concrete of whatever
thickness traffic demands, and the
top of Native Lake Asphalt and fine
mineral matter, known as Asphaltic
Concrete or Sheet Asphalt.
"It is easily appreciated that such
a road is eminently fitted to carry all
types of traffic and is the true eco
nomic solution to the road problem.
"The top; is dustless, resilent and
durable, providing not only an 'easy
riding' highway, but protecting the
Portland Cement Concrete base from
the damaging effects of frost, wea
ther and traffic, the first two causing
the heaving and cracking so usual in
roads built entirely of concrete. The
Portland Cement Concrete base forms
a firm and unyielding support for the
resilient 'easy-riding' top and forming
a bridge over the soft earth of the
sub-grade, prohibits pot holes and de
pressions from appearing on the road
surface and thus the two materials,
Asphaltic Concrete and Portland Ce-
ment Concrete form the perfectly bal
anced road.
"This method of construction has
been used extensively all over the
United States and has provided many
miles of durable roads, some twenty
years old and still in perfect condi
tion. "This'same principle is embodied in
Riverside Drive below 113th St.. New
York, probably the heaviest traveled
park driver in the country. -

2.75 Per Cent.
Beer Selling
Acting on the advice of an attorney
of this county, John Cook, George
Brand and Bert Thurman, of Bonne
Terre, on last Monday began the sale
of beer containing 2.75 per cent alco
hol so-called non-intoxicating beer.
Those who imbibed had a hilarious
time that night.
When Prosecuting Attorney Coffer
was in Bonne Tqrre Wednesday he
learned of the sale of this beverage
and straightway proceeded to make
an investigation at the places of bus
iness of the three men above men
tioned. He found at the restaurant of
John Cook 250 empty bottles, but no
beer on hand. Cook readily admitted
that he had been selling beer, but
thought that ho was within the law
when he did so, as he had sought the
advice of an attorney concerning the
sale of the same. Stocks of beer were
discovered in ice chests at both
Brand's and Thurman's. who also
thought that they were not violating
the law..
Information was filed by Mr. Cof
fer against Cook, Brand and Thur
man yesterday. Mr. Coffer is
thoroughly determined to bring to
trial any one who is guilty of violat
ing the local option laws of the coun
ty. He pointed out that while 2.75
per cent beer could be legally sold un
der the Federal restrictions, the sale
in this county of beer containing the
smallest per cent of alcohol was a
strict violation of the local option law,
which specifically classes beer-,, and
wine as restricted beverages. . . - :

Spirit of Good Roads
Building Increases
The Times management is especial
ly pleased to note that the spirit of
good roads building appears to be
constantly on the increase, not only
throughout St. Francois county, but
through adjacent counties as well. If
this paper can be of any assistance in
bringing about the great work of im
proved roads it will feel that its misr
sion in the affairs of men has not been
in vain, as it is our belief that there
is no local question now crying for
settlement of anything like the im
portance of good roads.
The St. Francois County Court is
not only ready and willing, but anx
ious, to call for a good roads bonding
election just as soon as the necessary
petition containing only 200 names
is presented to them, asking for
such action. Under the existing con
ditions in this county, good roads
bonds would be practically a gift to
every resident citizen in this county,
as they will bo called upon to pay not
more than one-fifth of such indebted
ness. Is that not sufficient reason
for immediate action on this great
proposition.
Action in this matter should not be
longer delayed, as each succeeding
year is likely to show a diminishment
in the product of the great mining
companies, who should be pleased to
leave to St. Francois county a good
roads inheritance, for all the untold
millions of wealth they have already
taken out of this county. The Times
dues not uclicvp that even the lead
companies would oppose such a bond
issue.
With much pleasure Tho Times
notes that the County Court of Ste.
Genevieve county on Tuesday of this
week ordered a vote on, a good roads
bond issue for $385,000, said, election
! to be held on September 6th, next. The
one thing about this action that we re
gret is the early date of the election.
We believe it would be beneficial,
both to Ste. Genevieve county as well
as to St. Francois county, to make
such a call simultaneously. In that
way each county would, we believe, be
able to very materially assist' the
other in the carrying of such an elec
tion. If it were known that the build
ing of a road to the county line meant
that it would be continued on through
the other county, would that not be a
strong incentive for the building of
such road to the county line?
In this connection, The Times be
lieves it would be a wise move to hold
a mass meeting at some central point,
for the discussion of the best meth
ods to be pursued to solve for all
tim h good rokus vjuealkrfl. At
such -a meeting enthusiastic good
roads men from the counties of Ste.
Genevieve, Perry, Madison, Reynolds,
Iron, Washington, Jefferson and St.
Francois, should be invited to parti
cipate, thereby making it a District
Good Roads Association. In this way
one county could help all the others1
not only in valuable suggestions, but
in valuable work as well.
This is given only as a suggestion,
but if it should be accepted in the
same spirit it is given for the ulti
mate good of all we know that it
will bear fruit abundantly. There
will perhaps never again be a time so
seasonable as the present ior the pusn-
lng forward of good roads- worn. It
is true that labor is high at this time,
but is it not also true that labor must
live? Who can better afford to pay
the wages that are now necessary than
the whole people? Public vforks is the
best method for easing the country
over the reconstruction period. Is it
not so? Then who will start the
work of organizing a District Good
Roads Association?
Work BeingPushed
at Iron Mountain
The Times is please 1 to note that
the work of pumping the water from
the immense reservoir, or lake, at
lion Mountain continues to go for
ward uninterruptedly, and that the
15-horse power pump keeps chugging
away day and night, drawing an un
ending stream q water of considera
ble size from that Immense body, the
effect being that tne reservoir is bcir.g
rapidly lowered.
When this work is completed, then
minin? operations will be pressed for
ward on a better regulated scale than
it has ever before been carried on in
Iron Mountain, and the hope of Capt.
Elledge, the new owner of that great
property, is that very soon ho will be
able to keep a large force of men reg
ularly employed in taking out that
splendid iron ore, of which there is
every evidence of being unlimited
quantities. - .
