President Schurman,of Cornell, Un-! iversity, is an optimist. . He sees in the airship the solution of 'the road question. Noting the rapid progress made in aviation, he predicts that the time is not far off when the rich will abandon the automobile, pur chase aeroplanes, and leave the roads to the public. To add emphasis he concluded: ''This will give the roads to you and me.' President Schurman's enthusiasm blinds his eyes to some very irapor tant iacts. me modern bicvcle was the result of 150 years experiment and wheelmen started the good roads idea. It took a hundred years to de velop the automobile, which forced the good roads idea to successful is sue. ne uicycie is now the poor man's machine, the automobile the rich man's, and they are both neces sary to further development of good roads. President Schurman ought to realize that the roads of today are the result of the very machines he wants to see vacate them Now, if the automobile is aban doned by the rich who pay, or should pay, the larger portion of taxes ap plied to roads, beside donating large sums to good roads associations, will there be the same incentive to main tain good roads? The taxes can be counted on, so long as there is some one in every community to push the good roads idea. But who have been pushing it? Will the general public continue the work? Will "you and me" give the necessary inspiration? Can President Schurman wield suffic ient influence so that the roads will continue to be improved? Taking the bicycle and the auto mobile into full consideration, have the roads been denied the public? As a matter of fact, hasn't the public been given better roads? If this is so, hasn't President Schurman's op timism and enthusiasm led him into an implied mistatement of the facts? We believe he has, and further that if there was prospect that aviation will result in leaving the roads to the public, to the' extent that thev failed to show further improvement President Schurman would be among the very first to regret this progress What He Stands For. When President Taft left Tacoma he headed south, and had completed 5,000 of the 13,000 miles of his jour ney. Up to that time he had made eight speeches, of first importance which have clearly set forth his view: on nearly every question or impor tance. In making these eight speech es the President selected in the diff erent cities visited, the subjects which he believed to be of greater in terest to his hearers. Starting from Boston, he made the first of his set speeches on finance and currency legislation, speaking es pecially of the work the monetary commission appointed by congress has undertaken to do. At Chicago he discussed labor and injunctions. At Milwaukee he approved the es tablishment of a postal saving's bank- system. At Winona, Minn., he made plain his position with reference to the Pavne tariff bill and the new tariff commission. At Des Moines, Iowa, he outlined his ideas of needed amendments to the interstate commerce and anti trust laws. At Denver he devoted his remarks to the corporation tax and dwelt upon what he deemed its advantages in preference to a direct income tax At Spokane he discussed the servation" of natural resources the reclaimation of arid lands. con- and At beattle he gave his views re garding the future government of Alaska by a commission, and pro nounced unqualifiedly in favor of a shipsubsidy law. Since leaving Tacoma, his speeches are entirely extempore in character and consist largelv of reference to and amplifiation of those lie has al ready made. Dr. B. G.
