Florida Man Reaches Asheville After
Lng Trip; Says Report of Bad
Roads Greatly Exaggerated.
Mr. and 'Mrs. W. B. Powell and Miss
Maxine Powell, of Clearwater, Fla.,
arrived in Asheville Saturday, finish
ing 6,290 miles of an automobile trip,
which they began June 7, and of which
they spent about seven weeks in the
rain. They are stopping for three
weeks at Mountain View with the Flor
ida colony.
Mr. Powell is president of the cham
ber of commerce of Clearwater, and is
former secretary of the commercial
bodies at St. Petersburg and Tampa,
Florida, and Columbus, Ga., and is
also founder of the St. Petersburg
Evening Independent and the Clear
water Evening Sun.
He made this long trip in the inter
est of good roads and to pick out the
best route from Florida to the eastern
Seaboard, traversing the line of tour
ist travel, and naturally struck Hen
dersonville and Asheville, as most of
the South Florida tourists linger at
these plaees both going from'and com
ing to Florida.
The trip was made via Vadosta,
Macon and Atlanta, thence to Chatta
nooga and Nashville, Cairo, St. Louis.
Chicago, Detroit, Toledo.. Cleveland.
Akron, Wheeling, Hagerstown, "Wash
ington, Richmond, Raleigh,. Charlotte,
Greenville and thence on to Asheville,
The party made many side trips in va
rious cities and to many points of in
terest en route.
Mr. Powell said yesterday:
"Hundreds of motoring parties kare
diverted their course and gone other
than the Asheville region on account
of the stories prevalent as to the con
dition of the roads leading to this sec
tion. "We were told at Washington, at
Richmond, and at many other places
that it would be impossible to get
through. We were told that they
charged $15 to $23 to ferry cars over
the streams were bridges were wash
ed out. That teamsters would dam
age roads so that they could 'soak'
motorists fabulous sums for use of
their mule teams.
4'0n "the contrary we found men
willing to help without cost, and the
ferries never charged more than fifty
"Coming from Washington we had
to make a detour through Dumfries
and Joplin to Garrisonville, on the
other side of the Chopawamsip pwamj .
as the water had covered the eleven
miles of causeway; and the detour was
a frightful trip of thirty-nine miles
over impassable roads. But this con
dition is only temporary as a few
sunshinny days will make the swamp
route of easy access.
"This is the only bad place of road
to Richmond. The balance of the road
is a delight to the motorist. From
Richmond to the South Carolina line
the roads are excellent. At Charlotte
you are obliged to go via Mt. Holly and
cross the ferry there, twenty-five cents
and thence to McAJensville where you
ferry at fifty cents cost. At Gaffney
there is a bad approach to a bridge
whose approach is wrecked and which
you have to climb at a bad angle at
your own risk. The first few miles in
South Carolina are slippery in wet
weather. At Gaffney you have to
go via Thickity mountain to get to
Cowpens. a detour of five miles, but
the roads are excellent. The road
from Greenville over the mountain is
not the best but a few dry days will
put it in shape.
"Asheville should give the lie to the
reports in the eastern press of TOad
conditions to this section. Motoring
parties are changing their plans on ac
count of the stories which seem to en
large as they pass from one to the
'other. Naturally each motorist de
sires to impress his friends that he has
broken records and he adds excess to
his talk when recounting the perils of
his trip. I am writing to the Wash
ington Star today to my friend Fisk.
the automobile editor, and next Sun
day that paper will tell the motoring
public that they can get here without
any great exertion.
The route Mr. Powell followed was
not the National highway, except in
spots. When he returns to Florida he
is to start a campaign to route the
route he traversed from Tampa
to Washington signboards with
through mileage from these two points,
and by marking each telegraph post en
route. This marking of each telegraph
pole is used in many central states,
and is done by local aid each com
munity marking half way to the next
town. Mr. Powell stated that there
is not a reliable good book in existence
as quite frequently they advise to turn
right when the correct routing was

correct routing, and he has been gov
erned mostly by local markings in hi3

North Carolinians who have iust re

Hughes' Speeches on Low Plane.
Candidate Hughes is severely criticis
ed for the "misstatements" made in
his speeches in the West the last few
days, concerning the alleged removal
of Republican officials not coming
within the civil service law "protec

Ever since Candidate Hughes open
ed his mouth he has exhibited a mar
velous knack of saying things ho
"hadn't ought to." Indeed, it seems
that he has a special penchant for
getting tangled up (probably the rea
son he kept so quiet pending the do
ings at Chicago) and if the rope hold;;
out before the more astute party man
agers grab it, he probably can be de
pended on to duly hang himself politi
cally by the time the hour arrives for
counting the votes in November.
Meantime, the real issues of this
campaign will soon be properly pre

ing public in President Wilson's letter
