HAS CONFERENCE WITH GOVERNOR Road Would Be 3,700 Miles in Length and Pass Through Many Southern Capitals 480,000,000 Would Be Re quired for Plan. NASHVILLE. Feb. 8. Dr. 8. M. Johnson of Phoenix, Ariz, delegated by Gov. Locke Craig, of North Caro lina, to call upon the governors of tbe fifteen Southern states which may be traversed by the great Southern high way, planned by the Southern Na tional Highway Association, was a visitor at the executive mansion yes terday afternoon, and he later stated that Gov. Hooper had given him as surances of most hearty support. According to Dr. Johnson Gov. Hooper has already appointed more than twenty delegates to the South ern National Highway Convention, which is scheduled to meet at Ashe ville, S. C, Feb. 12-15. It is proposed according to Dr. Johnson, to interest congress in the project of the Atlantlc-to-the-Paclfic highway, and In this manner secure a portion of the $80,000,000 necessary to build tbe road. The road is to begin at Moorehead City, S. C, and end at San Diego, Cal., but the route between these points has not yet been eslected. Three routes have been proposed. First to pass through New Orleans, the second through Vlcksburg and the third through Memphis. Ibis latter plan appears to strike the pop ular fancy, according to Dr. John son, as the BrlBtol-to-Memphls high way could be stag. From San Diego to Little Rock, Ark., an excellent road Is already in operation. This is 2.200 miles la length, and only a moderate sum would be used In improving Its ted. The remainder of the road would be about 1,500 miles in length. The second route would be known as the capital city route, and would pass through Atlanta, Montgomery, .Jackson. Dallas and Phoenix. This l plan also baa its warm supporters. Several weeks ago representatives sent by many governors of the south ern states met St Raleigh to discuss plans, and a second meeting to ba held at Ashoville was decided upon. Gov. W. C. McDonald, of Arizona. Is a warm supporter of the plan nad has delegated some of the best men of that state to attend the convention. Col. D. C. Collier, president of the San Diego-Panama exposition, and Dell H. Potter, of Clifton, Ariz., pro visional president of the Southern National Highway Association, are devoting their entire time to making the venture a success. According to Dr. Johnson, an ex cellent road connects Dallas and Lit tle Reck, and it would require little expense to widen this into a trans continental pike. The roads of the Southwest are not in good condition and it would require considerable ex pense to put the highway through that section. SAM YOUNG INTHE FIELD COMMISSIONER OF ELECTI0N8 WANTS TO BE UNITED 8TATE8 MARSHAL. COOKBVILLB, Tenn., Feb. 8. Judge Sam M Young, of Dixon Springs, chairman of the state board of election commissioners, Is an ap plicant for appointment as marshal of Middle Tennessee at the hands of President Wilson. He was one of tbe Wilson leaders In this state during the contest for the nomination and was a delegate from the state at large to the Baltimore convention. WAR CLAIMS UNSETTLED I NO ACTION LIKELY TO BE TAK EN UNTIL THE NEXT 8E88ION. WASHINGTON, Feb. 13. The con ference on the claims bill, which In cludes the Southern war claims, held a meeting today without result. An other meeting will be held tomorrow. Representative Sims, chairman of tbe house committee, and Senator Craw ford, of the senate committee, rep resent directly opposite viewa oa the Southern war claims question, and as Mr. Sims has repeatedly declared that he will oppose all clams unless the civil war claims are allowed, it Is probable that no action whatsvsr will be taken on the bill this session. The next senate will be democratic and the Southern claims will un doubtedly receive dot from ttet body
