A convention of far reaching Im
portance is to be held from Sept 30
to Oct, 5 In Atlantic City, N. J On
these date* the American Road con-
gress will gather for the first of what
will become an annual event, and
plans are already under way to bring
every one of the forty or more road
Improvement associations in this
country into a united effort to accom-
plish results. President Taft and
dozens of congressmen and senators
are scheduled to make addresses at
this convention, which undoubtedly
will be the biggest boom for better
roads yet undertaken in this conutry.
The I'nited States office of public
roads has arranged to have on exhi-
Ition at this meeting a unique ex-
hibit, showing, in miniature, the con-
struction of every known form of
mad building There will also b
tiny working models of road roller.?,
stone crushers, etc., showing the va-
rious ways of building and repairing
roads, together with maps and charts
showing the cost of building and up-
While the men who are actively interested In road Im
provement will gain greatly by the convention, Its great-
est value will be to the people of the farming communi-
ties. This convention will give a tremendous amount of
advertising to the good roads movement, which for the
first time in the history of this country, has obtained a
foothold, as It were, In congress. Thanks to the demo-
cratic house of representatives a start has been made to-
ward doing something along this vitally Important line,
and now that the trail has been blaaed it is expected that
less and less trouble will be met with in stirring up in-
terest and enthusiasm among the law makers. Congress-
man L>. W. Shackleford of Missouri, who ranks as one of
the ablest men in congress, and who has attained a plac ■
of leadership because of his long and faithful service,
has placed his shoulder to the wheel in this movement,
and from now on he may be expected to be heard from
Mr. Shackleford already has introduced a bill calling for
road Improvement, and the chances of passing this bi'l
will be much better after the road convention this fall
stirs up Its expected Interest.
The United States is paying $1,000,000 a day for Its
roads, more than $300,000 of which is wasted. It Is to
find a way to atop this tremendous drain on the country's
road revenues that the nation's best road engineers, chem-
ists, constructors, financiers, educators and legislators
will meet in Atlantic City.
The good roads program is based on common sense
inasmuch as It proposes to spend money for road im-
provement which is now wasted. Those who want bet-
ter roads do not Insist on saddling a new burden of ex-
pense on the country.

This man Root, temporary chairman of the republican
national convention, is a real wonder. He began speak-
ing in the convention hall at Chicago shortly after S
o'clock Tuesday afternoon, and by 7o'clock a cold wave
swept in on Houston from the north.
Wo have often heard it said Boot is a hurttkn Iceberg,
but we never fully realised the truth of It before.
Even more than the victory of Taft over Roosevelt,
the victory of Root over McGovern, In the first roll call
of the convention, proves that the great corporation*
control the party.
Root is accurately described by the Philadelphia North
American as follows:
"He is the master architect of the big trusts, chief
deviser for legality of the unpunishable crimes of Big
Business, acolyte of court worship, with justice sub-
ordinated to technicalities and alien to all humanitarian
legislation and political change feared for any reason by
privilege and property.
"Coupled with all his wisdom and high ability, there
is ingrained in his nature a conservatism which puts him
out of harmony with the progressive policies which the
people and the party and the times demand.
"Reverence for vested rjghts Is part of Root's charac-
ter. In all matters of economics, finance and the regula-
tion of corporations he Is temperamentally a reactionary,
and the man praised publicly by a trust-maker and Wail
street law-breaker as 'the first lawyer who could always
tell me how to do legally whatever we wanted to do.' "
Root's selection by the republican national convention
was logical. He was the right man to sound Its keynote,
for 1912. If his party has the virtue of consistency. It
will now nominate Root for president. He Is as reaction-
ary as Taft, and has a doaen times as much* Intelligence

two months later a neater uamed Har-
