Deputy Sheriff H. H. VV hitson aud Policeman Wick Adair made a t . id on the drug store belonging to F Z. Holley on East Main street yesterday afternoon, taking in charge various and sundry so-called medicines, beverages, etc. The goods taken are now stored in the sh riffs office and will be used as evidence when the case comes up for hearing, and will be confiscated lf found to be contraband.
Dr. Holley had nothing to sa> concerning the action ol the sheriff’s department. He was ordered to appear at 9 o’clock Friday morning. June 13th, when the case will be heard in Justice IL J. Brown’s court. |
Among the articles taken by the officers from Dr, Holley s drug Flore were: 3 barrels, 48 bottles of! iVpsinol containing 20'* alcohol,
1 barrel. 24 bottles Tanola, containing 18r, alcohol; 3 dozen bottu s Wine of Pepsin, 17 ', alcoh-1 ol; 3 cases Panola, 15f* alcohol; I dozen butties l’eruna, 2'* alcohol,
2 dozen bottles Iron Tone. 7 Ms alcohol; I dozen bottles Wine of Beef and Iron with 30', alcohol. The goods taken, the officers sa>. are worth in the neighborhood of $600.00.
“In view interest in this country, it is interesting to note that both France and England are far ahead of us in their administration of road funds,” said Mr. Chapin.
“France, for example, has recently apropriated $152,000,000 for the repair and upkeep of 65,000 miles of roads and the national government, w'hich has always retained full control of the construction and maintenance of main highways. has gone a step further and has taken over the secondary system as well. This is in direct contrast to our present plan of operation, which in effect, distributes a sum of $273,000,000 over a three-year period or any part of 2,500,-000 miles of road which local authorities may deem advisable, thus dividing control and spreading expenditures over an enormous mileage.
‘A technical committee has been; appointed to determine the kind of material necessary for each type of road and it is also probable that there will be a reclassification of highways according to recent advices from France.
“The French problem is, of course, more acute in a sense than ours since thousands of miles of roadways were demolished during the war and must be replaced. But thir very need which has caused the French government to assume full control in order to provide for the most efficient expenditure of every penny, is an indication of the
course which the United States government should take. This it cannot do as long as we have a law’ which apropriates monies among states and does not legally recognize the actual need for a national highway system which is now confronting us as a consequence of the enormous increase in interstate highway traffic.
“English authorities have also adopted an advanced stand in their treatment of the highway problem. The national government has appropriated $50,000,000 for use on national highways, requiring therewith a measure of local aid, but always holding national policies and purposes in the foreground. The entire subject of transportation has been made the subject of an elaborate investigation and it is not improbable that out of this will come sweeping changes in policies of administration, operation and construction of highways.
“In this country w'e have been content to treat the problem as one for sectional rather than national consideration instead of taking into account both elements.
“We can no longer continue this course without waste and inefficiency and the more quickly we adopt a plan of administration calling for a national highway system and a federal highway commission, the better off the country will be.
“The subject is one which should be brought tq the attention of every congressman for enactment into law at the next session of congress.”
