Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 9, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta |�^E FOUR Xetbbrit)flc, alberta IJAIUY AND WEEKLY Subscription R�- basis, so far as President IWiisott's government is concerned. Offers of p'eace have been made by Germany to both Russia and Japan, j)ut these offers have been rejected. The British in Mesopotamia are folding a strfktegical position at pres-isnti and are well re-lnforced. Canadian military author'ties announce themselve.� as hel-jg not at all worried by the sensational newspaper yams coming out of New York regarding a German invasion of Canada from the south. Worrj- doesn't seem to be at all at home in Ottawa these days. A New York divine says the policy of some newspapers is moulded in the counting houses, and when asked for an explanation, says he has It on "reliable authority." Yet the same divine would be wrathy if the New York press were to say on reliable authority that his faith was measured by ,the amount of salar>- he receives. The positions, however, would be analogous. THE- LETHBRID6iErDA1LY HBBAt-D .,.'1.. J: . . II III .1.1 :,.

GOOD ROADS W. MUIR EDWARDS, Professor of Civil and 'Municipal ..Engineering. ZEPPELIN RAIDS DM.DER FIP.Ei The New York Times, along with Ihe majority of American newspapers, ican see little to justify the Zeppelin raids. In fact, Zeppelin raids being ;the Subject under discussion in so many quarters as a result of the recent visitations on Paris and I^n Hon, the New York Times waxes sarcastic at the expense of the Huns, expressing Itself this way: The achievements of the Zeppelins In Paris Saturday add new glory to the history of these humane and effective military instruments. Twenr ty-four persons were killed and thirty wounded. The present population of (Paris can only be guessed at, so many-are the absences caused by the war, l)ut putting It at the 1911 figures of 2,888,110 ie�ls clear that if the war lasts long enough and the Zeppelins are as lucky as they were on Saturday, and if they raid once a day, they might kill or wound the entire poi>-ulatlon In 150 years or so. There can be no doubt of the genuine German Kecht Deutsch) efficiency of Zeppelins. The German airmen must be thor-bugbly familiar with the cartography of Paris. There was a fog Saturday, and if this prevented the French aeroplanes from seeing the visitors it did, not prevent the latter from dropping lioinbs "near the fortiflcations in the populous tenement district," which has no business to be near the fortifications. Indeed, ample military justification for the spirited performance of Saturday can be found in the tenement district Itself. A Paris dispatch 3n yesterday's Times says: "The worst case of all was a five-Btory tenement at the end of a cul de sac *  � Here the family of a ^ouave, Auguste Petitjean, were cele-�bratlng the father's leave from the iront. His wife and 15-year-old daughter, Lucie; his old father-in-law, Jos. IFrlchtl, and his sister, Mme. Leriche, �with her two little boys, Raymond and Andre, had gathered around a table to hear stories of the war. Suddenly the war struck them. All sevjen were killed Instantly." This proves the military value of the raid. A soldier was killed. The "humble -workers" who were the targets may have been making muni tlons. More obscure, but doubtless clear to the German mind. Is the Im mediate military advantage gained by killing a girl of 4 and a babe oti5 months. But children and women are often the victims of the Teuton heroes of the air; they are more susceptlisle to Schreckllchkelt. The student of military history, the lover of heroic empires, will dwell with fondness on these characteristic Zeppeltnltes. There is a touching rivalry between the submarines and the Zeppelins as to whether from under water or from the air women and children can be killed In the t greater number and with the most :: neatness and dispatch. J ;, Where, even In the chronicles of li: the KnlghU of the Table Round, can I s there bo found a nobler picture ot I knightly deads than the tale of the *a i:Zeppelins? And remember that this (i.rwavfara'la effectual.

The above remark :was drawn from the Moose Jaw Times as a result ot sharp criticism of the Moose Jaw press by an alderman of that city who held that the newspapers had done much tarm by their stories regarding the coal shortage. It is to be presumed, of course, that the Moose Jaw Alderman knew - more about coal shortage conditions than did the press, hence his right to criticize.

To the casual observer It might appear that as the network of railways becomes closer, the outlay required for public roads should decrease. The exact opposite is the true state of affairs. The construction of branch railways means a more dense settlement of the country, Increases, therefore,'the burden on the tributary roads, and thus Justifies an increased expenditure on public highways. Improved financial conditions coincident with, or following closely upon railway expansion results In an Increased use of motor driven vehicles' both for business and pleasure. The increased speed of this class of traffic requires Improvement of roadways already In existence, introduces new. factors in:the construction of projected highway's and make more dimcult the maintenance. of all public roadways. In cvmstdoring the economic principles governing, highway Improvement and maintenance, It is well to dlstlngtilsh between the several classes of both roadways and traffic, considering first the former, we might make the foUoWlng division, confining ourselves, for the sake of simplicity, to four subheads, e.g., (1) Roads with a hard surface passable at all seasons for any type ot traffic; (2) Roads passable at all seasons only tor slow moving traffic, and fij? the remainder of the year for fast traffic; (3) Roads impassable at certain seasons of the year for all but light traffic, and for the remainder of the year passable for both slow moving loads and fast traffic; (4) Roads as above, except that for the remainder of the year slow moving loads only can be accommodated. Any passageway to which we apply the term road should come at least under the fourth ot these classifications. Such a roadway can be sue cesslvely raised into the higher classes at a cost for each improve, ment capable of definite estimation. The cost of such Improvements, to gether with the cost in the first place, is affected greatly by local conditions, but in general It.might be said that the cost of obtaining the first type of roadway is miich greater than is In volved In any.of the other three. The raising of the fourth to the third is a matter of upkeep. To obtain the second from; .the third may require some additional. constructional work, the main question, however, being upkeep, but the construction of a road with a hard surface serviceable for all traffic at all seasons. of the year is a comparatively costly piece of en gineering work. T)ils cost, together with suitable methods of construction win be considered in the third article of this series dealing with highways The economic problem with which we are faced is to determine to what ex tent we are Justified In making the expenditures necessar}' to obtain one of these types of roads. All will agree that a road connecting each quarter section with the point where delivery of produce may he made and at which supplies may be obtained Is essential and should be provided What we must consider Is just how much expenditure is justified In order that roads of the third, second or first class may be obtained and equal ly imponant how shall the required expenditure for any of these types be allotted.

Local trafTic might' consist of any ct the four classes, liut except in the neighborhood of large centres where conditions are peculiar and deserving ot special treatment, .would in the main be comprised In the first two divisions with .an addition of a small but growing percent-a>te ot the more moderate speed of the fourth class. Through trafhc would be almost entirely of the fourth class. On.the basis, therefore, of the requirements imposed by the tralUc and of the nature of this.traffic we might broadly classify the roadways of the province into main highways, .branch highways and country roads. The main highways would be those required by conditions in the neighborhood of large centres and bv .through traffic. The cost ot these might therefore be very well borne by the province at large, such revenue being obtained from the users thereof as may be deemed advisable. The branch highways would be the main arteries con-\'Erglng on the local centres. The-type of construction might not be ais heavy as in the ot the main highways, aiid the cost might be borne by the surrounding district, with possibly provincial assistance.

The benefit accruing, from Improved roadways is not alone directly financial, :but also that .due to Improved social and domestic conditions in the community. It Is well to emphasize this latter benefit since it Is not possible to demonstrate to a farming community that, on a purely financial basis, they arie justified In spending any considerable sum In road improvement except In so far as such expenditure is devoted to the elimination of features which would otherwise unduly limit the maximum load which may be hauled at any season of the year. For example, : an expenditure might be made to reduce a grade which>t all-seasons affects the maximum load, but would not bo juetlfled if applied to making passable at all seasons of the year a road which for the .greater portion of the time is passable with reasonably heavy loads.

CHASE & SANBORN, MONT^EALf MeCutcheonsNot Fairly Treated Toronto, Feb. 7.-The McCutcheon trial entered Into its fourth week to. day, when Marshall A. Cook, former sales manager for McCutcheon Bro; there, who was Included In a fonnor indictment, but who is not accused in the case now being heard, was called to the witness stand. He is the 34th witness to be called for the crown. Before adjourning the court for luncheon, Mr. Justice Mlddleton announced to the Jury that he would be unable to sit on the case next week, so that when the oohrt adjourns on Friday next, it will hot sit again until February 21. "I'had set aside three wesJts tor this,case," said his lordship, "but It Is .now In the fourth'week, and still there Is no sign of dec^y or loss of vigor." Crown Prosecutor Davidson ques tloned Cook this afternoon regarding the circumstances under wh^bh Great Falls property was turned over to him. The defence argued -thpt the crown should produce documentary evidence, hut Mr, Dfiyldson' said ;he could not find .any.
