Hon. William C. Sproul, whose
friends are booming him for Gover
nor of the State Is justly entitled to
be called the father of the Good
Roads movement in Pennsylvania.
He Introduced the first bill In the
Senate to Improve Pennsylvania
roads, and last year he introduced a
bill providing for a complete system
of main highways to bo built and
maintained absolutely at the cost of
the State, also introduced a resolution
authorizing the State to Issue bonds
for "fifty million dollars ($50,000,
000), for highway Improvement.
These suggestions met with the ap
proval of nearly all of tho leading
members of the Legislature and al
most fifty thousand signatures to pe
titions in favor of these bills were
presented to the House and Senate.
Senator Sproul has represented
Delaware county in the Senate con
tinuously since 1896 and is looked
upon ns the Republican leader of the
country members. He has yielded
great influence in the Senate, has
been elected President pro tem of
thnt body and has served on all of its
important committees. His friends
believe that his legislative experi
ence and great business interests, to-
gether with his past record which
has proven his leadership make him
a most suitable candidate for Gov
ernor. Senator .Sproul was born In Lan
caster county in 1870 and came to
Delaware county when a young boy;
he graduated from .Swarthmore Col
lege. He has always been a Repub
lican nnd one of the youngest men
ever sent to the Senate In this state.
His business career started In the
publication office of the Chester
Times of which paper he to-day
owns a controlling Interest as well
as the Morning Republican of that
city. He Is identified, with many
other enterprises in Chester and in
different parts of the State. He is
the President of the Seaboard Steel
Castings Company; President of the
Chester Shipping Company; Director
in several banks, and has always
been found ready to assist both by
his efforts and money In the ad
vancement of his home city and

CANNONISM IS DEAD; LONG LIVE
Cannonism consisted of enforcing
rules which had governed tho House
of Representatives for years and
which had been used by Democratic
and Republican speakers. These
rules wero necessary to tho making
of laws and shaping of legislation
which otherwise could be delayed
and hindered by nn irresponsible)
minority. Just as soon as theso rules
conflicted with tho personal .alms
and ambitions of a number of Con
gressmen of the dominant party, each
believing that his district was tho
"center of tho universe," and that all
legislation should ho for the benefit
of their constituents, rather than for
tho whole people, they Imitated tho
"thirty pieces of sllvor charactor" of
old, and joined forces with the enemy
to overthrow rules which onco they
were loud In their praises off.
Enough of them reponted In
