MUST KNOW GOOD ROADS FROM BAD P. O. Young, professor of economics and sclology at tne Univeristy of Ore gon, is the author of a recent bulletin entitled "Tendencies in Recent Amer ican Koad Legislation. " The bulletin is published as one of a new series by the state university. The press-work was very creditably done in the ofllee i 1 1. . I.1. . 1 1 : i Professor Young in his bulletin shows that satisfactory progress in the building and maintenance of good roads requires first of all an ap preciation of what good roads mean for the welfare of the people and the development of such an organi zation of their resources as will furn ish road improvement money and brains. People must realize what thoy have at stake in the difference between good roads and bad roads and then get such a system of laws as will indue the largest measure of effective effort in building good roads. The bulletin is made up of two parts. In the first Professor Young points out the conditions that led to the most remarkable awakening of the people of this country during the last 15 years to the interest they have at stake in their public roads. A great national movement has been organized. The support of the general government In Its ofllee o Public Koad Inquiries has been enlist ed. The agency under lion. Martin Dodge is rapidly extending its work It is disseminating most helpful liter ature on road construction and road laws, it is testing free of charge road material and has built object lesson roads in nearly every state. The very eminent national uood Koads associa tion is supported bv about half i dozen kindred national organizations. ijvory state probably and many sec tions and counties are organized to promote the cause of good roads. It is clear that the laws that emu Date from a movement of such spirit and earnestness have significance and are valuable as models. Having shown that the hauls of the good roads movement lies in the far reaching importance to a people of their roads and pointed out the fact that in the long run good roads are not whit harder on the pocket book than are bad roads. Professor Young goes careruiiy into the laws that have been the outcome of this movement- lie gives tabular digests showing me provisions in the law of the differ enc states and territories bearing up on the characteristic foatures as they were in lHSi); secondly the changes maue by im ; tnirdiy, those made be tween that date and 1104. The tend encies oieany revealed in this new road legislation are summarized. Blnoe the meeting of the first cost of the permanent roads Is the crucial part of the road problem, that system of road laws is best which secures the most equitable distribution of the burden of road improvement. State id with state supervision has been adopted by nearly one-third of the states as a solution of the problem 01 oosi. inrougn tuis state aid very satisfactory results have been obtain ed. New Jersey, Massachusetts, nectlout and New York have Con- given this policy thorough tests and are rap idly increasing their state appropria tions. Among the other new features in road laws that the bulletin notes are more serviceable classifications of roads j provision for skilled super intendence in the location, construc tion and continuous repair of roads; substitution of the money tax for the labor tax and the rapid Increase of taxation for road purposes ; work done under contracts publicly let ; recourse to bond issues j utilization of convict labor in constructing roads and pre paring road material; protection of roads through favoring use of wide tires; convertion of toll roads into public roads. The phenomlnally rapid dovelodment of the sentiment in favor of national aid for road improvement is noted and the "toning up" elfoot on state systems that such national aid would undoubtedly have. Work on the Portage Koad. In answer to the inquiry as to how work on the portage road is nroirress- lng, contractor Nelson says all is going smooiniy and satisfactorily, the cold weatner causing practically no delay. About 100 men are now at work, says ne I'uuoa (jnroniofe. Contractor Tlliortson has two pile drivers at work and in four days will oe tnrougnt driving tbe piling at Ce lllo. Of the 1100 feet to be driven. about 800 are disposed of. On the long trestle at Cape Horn one-third will be completed about the 20th of March, it is expected that all the piling will be ilulshed by the middle of April. Contractor AJleu, who has charge of the grading of 50,000 yards, has half oi tne worK completed, or ffii.OUO yards. Steel for the Incline track is on its way and should it arrive iu time the work of laying the track will com monoe on the 10th of March. Celilo is now a village of tents and among them a large two story mess house Is much iu evidence. It has just beeu built at a cost of 11000. Obenonlth People Send Thanks.

HOOD RIVER APPLES AT 75 CENTS DOZEN Hood River apples are selling for 75 cents a dozen in New York city, states C. A. Hamilton in a lnttnr of inquiry to W. J. Maker & Co. local real estate dealers. Mr. Ham ilton wants to know if there is an opportunity to get work in a Hood Kiver orchard, andwhether the stories he reads about this wonderful country are all true. Continuing he says : "I find in our market, and when I say our market I mean our Washing ton market, covering a whole bloc one firm offering for sale Hood River apples at IX) cents per dozen and on an outside stand, a larger sized apph , culled Spitzenbnrg (but 1 doubt the variety! somewhat) at four for a quar- tor, or ib cents per dozen, and they sell them. "Eastern products go at three for five cents. They are much smallor but just as juicy, but have a hardm climate I presume to buck against. " Annual ItanijiiAt Hoosier Noel My. Eighty-five natives and former rewi- dents of Indiana were seated at the banquet of the lloosier society of Hood River in the Odd Fellow's hall last Wednesday nigth, the 22d of February. 1 ho banquet was a siinituous till air. After the dinner there were several spoeches, and some musical numbers, Leslie liutler of ilutler St Co., bank ers, was reelected president of the local lloosier society, and Miss lilad dys Hartley was chosen secretary. 'resident Uutler Is anxious that the state lloosier society now being formed in Portland be secured to hold their first annual gathering in this city. Among the addresses was a talk bv Rev. J. S. Rhoads of the United Brethren church. This was followed by a duet by Miss Hartley and Miss Orr. Two little girls, Katlirvn Hartley and May Stewart, then wing Uolly s JVlumam. ' Miss Wright gave a condouced report of the happeniugH in the state of Indiana since the In ft meetlugs of the 1 loonier club. There was then a song, "Mr. and Mrs, M alone. " George Wilson amused the Itoosiers with a humorous reading. II. W. Wait, the inimitable story toller nw songster, rendered his "Zanzibar" in graphic style. The house applauded to the echo. Other recitations were delivered bv Nina Hoilowell, Marie and Aldine Rartmess, Helen Stewart and (larnett Hayner. The Napkins used at the banquet were the present of Mrs. L. llenrv. who sent all the way to Columbus, Indiana, to get some of home manu facture. RADISH THAT IS RECORD SMASHER Mr. Porter of Sears & Porter, the East Side apple men, has a radish story that is equal to any of the Hood River apple stories. While plowing last week, a radish of the California White variety was uncovered in the garden which Has I.V.j inches long; !i-l?4 inches in 'circumference, and weighed 11 pounds. The radish had been planted last spring and contin ued to grow until the snow three weeks ago. Make Fine Maps f (he City. Murray Kay was recently employed to draft a map of the city of Hood Kiver for the Light and Water Co., for the purpoco of locating the pipe and wire system of tho company. The map is a splendid piece of workman ship, and excells anything of its. kind ever executed in the citv before. The map indicates the diiiereut additions of Hood Kiver, each of v. hich is shown in different color. The width of all streets and lots is accurately in dicated by ligurcs. Ned Henderson, tho real estato and insurance, agent, has nmdo a copy of the a map for his ollico. It is also in colors, and is a vory creditable piece of work for an amateur. While it is Mr. Henderson 's first attempt of tho kind, ho may well ho proud of it. Tho map is a valuable addition to his real citato ofllce. Woodmen .Ileum Their Commander.
