Judges of the Superior Court
State Treasurer,
Auditor General,
v For Jury Commissioner,
Boise Penrose, chairman of
the Republican State committee, has
been requested to designate a plan of
nominating a candWat© for congress in
the twsnty-fonrth district, which in-
IS . Washington, Beaver & Lawrence
counties. Congressman Acbeson's eup
porter* from Waihington and Lawrence
, favor the popular vote system,
while Braver people demand the confer
ral) system, which is now in vogue.
Mr. sayq that unless the State
chairman recommends the popular vote
system be will take the matter to court
No matter whom the conferrees select
be «!■<"»* the fight to go before the peo
ple. He aays he will take out nomina
tion papers in the three counties, abide
by the roles at the Republican organi
sation and fight the slated candidate.
If he wiqs py a majority, he feels confi
dent the courts will sustain his posi
t. v tton.
At Greensbnrg last Thursday, the
I conferrcos of the Westmoreland —Butler
, OmgHaßUirnl district endorsed the ac
* jj -is Hon previously taken by the two county
committees. giving WestmorelsndCo the
v first three terms. Butler the next two
and so on. The man we nominate in
this county for congress, next year will
be rare of not getting there, l>ut he will
probably control the Butler postoffice.
The Washington Pa. "Observer"
v commenting on Congressionsl affair?.
| says—
"The 22nd congressional district has
decided that one republican has a cer
' tain right this year cr next but that it
is abridged and diminished four years
from now—and why T Because repub
lican leaders or politicians have so
Sfe made the deal. Is there mnch wonder
that the republicans of Washington
county who have for almost 20 years
worked to bring nominations closer to
the people will not recede from their
position when they see to what limit
and to what absurdities and injustice
any other system will lead ? It will be
|£j surprising if the 16.000 voters of West
morel and county will allow them-
stives to be bartered, traded and di
vided up in tbtir just and legal rights
in order to haye the matter of congres
p sional nominations settled harmoni
ously for the next seven years. Popu
lar government and the rights of the
people received a hard jolt when the
congressional representatives of West
moreland and Butler counties adopted
their three to five reversible, flexible
and jumping- jack method of nominat
ing a candidate." —'
The Uniontown News Standard
voices the; sentiment of every fair ra
il publican voter in tbe state when is
i|i says that county lines should be abol
* ished in ths making of congressional
nominations. "Treat the district as a
unit, let every republican have the
■ame voice as every other republican
and wipe out the sys
'•:v: tem which has disappeared from every
state in the Union but Pennsylvania."

district, notifying them that the taking

Comments and SiifjßWitlonK
the New IC«M»d LJ»».
In responee to many inquiries. the
Legislative Committee of the State
Grange issues, to the Grants of Penn
sylvania the following brief i-ommenta
upon a few of the more important pro
visions of the new Road Law.
The new Act <soes not disturb the
present township road law
The new law becomes operative in
those districts only that apply for State
aid in road improvement.
Petitions for State aid for assistance
in improving a main traveling road in
the township may be made either by
township supervisors, or by the owners
of a majority of the assessable real
estate valuation thereof through the
County Commisioners.
In case of same desire by two or more
adjoining townships these petitions are
to be singly made out and presented col
lectively to the County Cmmisiuners.
The owners of a majority of the
assesable real estate valuation in a
township may block action in that
township by sending a petition against
it within thirty davs to the County
All work dyne under this law shall be
by contract according to the plans and
specifications to be prepared by the State
Highway Commisioner.
Townships are eligible through their
Supervisors to become contractors.
As showing what is meant by an
"Improved Road in materials that
may be used, by whom selected, and gen
eral condition of the road we cite entire
the 23rd section of the act.
Section 23. All highways improved
under the provisions of this act shall re
quire the construction of a macdamized
rohd, or a telford or other stone road,
or a road constructed of gravel, cinder,
oyster shells, or other good materials, in
such manner that the aarne of whatever
material constructed, will, with reason
able repairs thoreto, at all seasons of
the year be firm, smooth and convenient
for travel. The County Commissioners
shall have the authority to select the
kind of materials to be used in improv
ing any ifead .under the provisions of
this Act. Any difference of opinion
that may arise between the County
Commisioners and the township road
authorities, as to the kind of a road to
be built, shall be decided by the State
Highway Commissioner. The State
Highway Commissioner shall furnish to
the County Cmmisioners and township
road authorities information as to the
probable cost of improved highways, as
defined in this section.
"No section of Highway improved
under this Act shall be less than one
fourth mile in length nor shall the im
proved portion thereof be less than
twelve feet in width.'
The State coold well have afforded
an appropriation of $1,000,000 or more
per year and should have done so.
There is, however, but $500,000 per year
for the next two years. It is to be dis
tributed to each county on the basis of
the road mileage in each county ascer
tained by townships. This is a wise
feature of the Act as it gives equal con
sideration to every mile of public road
in the State, in the poorer as well as
the more densely populated richer dis
It is provided 'That the County Com
misioners shall furnish, under oath, to
the State Highway Commisioner. the
total number of miles of township or
county public roads by townships.'
This mileage can be obtained in va
rious ways that will be inexpensive but
yet would, we think, be satisfactory.
This data should be locally preserved and
be available for the various townships.
If the amount to which each county is
entitled is not apjflied for this year it re
mains in the State treasury to the cred
it of that county and may be drawn
next year along with the amount for
that year.
Of the expense incurred in improving
a road under this law the State bears
two-thirds, the county one-sixth and
the townahip one-sixth payable in cash.
It is permitted, however, for a county
and township or townships to mutaliy
agree to bear different relative propor
tions of their combined third, but in no
case may either pay less than 5 per
cent, of the total cost.
