Jnrlpe W. TV Oreen of Audubon county
will be elected to contrress In the Ninth
district on Monday Is the confident belief
of representative republican who have
famlllartied themselves with the situation.
While the district I somewhat removed
from this political center a pret many
republican! here, especially among state
offices, have gone Into the district, or have
by correirpondenre accured Inside Informa
tion aa to conditions In the varloua coun
ties, and the general impression la that
the district will remain, as for many years.
In the republican column.
"The controlling element." said one state
fflclat who has been In the east end of
the district, "will be the facj that Juflire
Qreen la personally and In his political life
an Ideal man to send to congress. He has
the confidence of the people to an unusual
extent. Ills service on the bench In all
but two of the counties of the district ha
given him a very wide acquaintance and
It all helps, for ha has mado no enemies.
He has always been a staunch republican,
a man believing flrmty in republican prin
ciples and in congress he could be de
pended upon to do the right thing. This
la the factor that Is going to make for
his election. The only question there is
now before the voters of the district is to
get out a reasonably full vote."
The democratic committee is not as con
fident aa it was at the start. It had great
hopea of the success of raising an Issue
on reciprocity, but It seems that that Is
ue baa dwindled bofors the larger one
of having tha district so long represented
by Judge Walter I. Smith represented by
democratic member. All reports agree
that there ia no talk at all about reci
procity, that tha people are not excited
about it, that the farmers are indifferent
and. thai they are neither very anxious to
defeat It nor fearful of results. It is found
that among both democrats and repub
licans, especially adong the farmers, there
la wide difference) of opinion and that
roost of tha farmers are now admitting
(that with their present knowledge they
; are hardly prepared t6 decide' the question
j aa to (ha) pending bill In congress.
DestoenUi Change Plan.
Thar la some evidence of a change of
I tactics on tha part of tha democrats from
! tha fact that la the rural district they
I are resorting to personal attacks upon
1 Judge Oreen. The campaign la so short
that ft la figured, tha facts cannot very
Iran ha tnada to overtake the falsehoods.
I Senator iW, P. Cleveland, the democratic
(candidate la a man of great ability and
ba has tha confidence of the democratic
j rotarw ata ah own by tha fact that he held
i VP tha Tots high last year when there was
l general slump -all over tha state. But
! Cleveland lacked nearly 4,000 of polling the
highest democratic vote of tha district
I which bad, been cast - a dozen years ago.
Ha did not receive as many votes as did
tha democratic candidate for congress in
tha aame district three' years ago. The
low vote for the republican ticket laat year
waa due to a large stay at home repub
lican vote largely due to tha unpopularity
of tha republican state ticket.
There la, of course, on,, the part of both
parti ea a fear.tlutt t&ere will ba a light vote
because of it being a special election. There
are nearly 0,000 votes In the district when
all are cast but It there are JMOO cast it will
ba surprise. For one thing, the weather
In tha western part of the state has not
bean aa favorable for corn cultivation aa
In tha central part of the state, It has
been too wet and tha weeds have got a
good, start and this will Induce the
farmers to remain at home that they may
be working in tha fields, as every hour is
precious at this aeason of tha year.
The fact thai Judge Oreen has been for
fifteen years on the bench has made It
Impossible that ha ahould take any part
tn tha factional -.troubles which have
disturbed that district as much as any
then Ha baa simply gone on with
judicial work and left political matters
alone, but It Is known that he has been
keenly alive to political Issues and Is un
usually wall equipped for a political career.
But his enforced Inactivity in the past will
bo aa asset la tha present campaign.

Tha fact that a great many horses are

own account, but at 23, was warned
by his physician to take open air em
ployment or he would die. At that
time Colonel Woods, Ohio general
agent of the Manhattan Life, was
vis, ting In Henderson and suggested
life Insurance ss a fine open air oc
cupation. Mr. Powell went to work

SOLUTION OF RACE SUICIDE
Excessive Mortality Due Primarily to
Ignorance and Improper Care.
VIEWS EXPRESSED BY DR. BAKER
Kays with Campaign of Prevention,
tarried on by Medical Science,
Many Deaths Can lie
NEW YORK, June 4. (Special Tele
gTam.) Dr. 8. Josephine Baker, chief of
the division of child loglene of the De
partment of Health of New York and one
of the best known women physicians In
the country, made the statement today
that the waste of Ufa among children
which we are deliberately permitting In a
manner which Is well-nigh criminal, Is the
real "race suicide." She says:
"In conserving the resources of a nation
It seems to me that we ought to start at
first In the conservation of human life
rather than the conservation of the more
"Tne problem of infantile mortality Is
one of the moat difficult we have to meet
in the division of child hygiene of the De
partment of Health In the city of New
York. I believe that the excessive mor
tality is- due primarily to ignorance and
Improper feeding and care. This fact ap
plies to all the cities In the United States.
The death rate of Infants throughout the
country generally has decreased 60 per
cent in tha last three years. This Is due
to-the. campaign of prevention, so-called,
that has been carried on by medical sci
ence, and Is due really to th knowledge
we have acquired that the large part of
these death are absolutely preventable.
Two Thing Needed.
'The two thing needed to prevent the
large Infant mortality la the education of
mother in the providing of prepared food
for the bablea, where the another cannot
'In this country th federal government
has not taken up the question of Infantile
mortality, but practically every large city
has, because they realise tha enormous
detriment to the community itself that
thl tremendous waste of life should go
on. We who are really engaged in this
work know that fully 60 per cent of this
mortality can be prevented.
"As tha greatest proportion of Infantile
mortality la due to Ignorance, therefor
the most Important means taken to pre
vent it must b education. It Is necessary
In this kind of educational work to make
the personal appeal to the mother.
"In connection with the reduction of In
fant mortality a movement has originated
In the division of child hygiene in the de
partment of health of New York City
which has attracted a good deal of atten
tion and which in my opinion is one of the
greatest factors In the campaign. This is
ths establishment of our Little Mothers'
league. We find in thl. as in every city
In the country, that in large families the
care of ths babies is delegated tn most In
stances to an older child.
Taoarht to Care for Bablea.
"Lst year la doctors In this division
gave lectures in New York City to girls
over 12 years of age on 'How to Care for
Babies.' Then they formed In every part
of the city, where it was svldent that the
girls did look out for the babies, the
Little Mothers' leagues.
"Th children wers taught at their school
meeting exactly how a baby hould be
dressed, bathed snd the easiest way of pre
paring baby's bed. We have aeventy-ons of
the leagues with a membership of 22,000
girls. They are not only a help to the
babies who are taken care of by these girls,
but when they have their own children
they will know how to take care of them.
I think thl is one of the most valuable
parts of this work.
"Ws need not get excited In this country
over the possibility of a decrease in the
birth rats so long ss ws view with com
placence an Indefensible death rats among
the babies, and it is just a question of the
importance the country attachea to this
child problem as to whether or not It shall
be solved. It rests with the people them
selves, Th mlnuts they sre willing to
make a provision for saving of life, as they
are for the prevention of crime. Just so
oon will they find th death rat among
these preventable diseases being reduced
to a minimum."

MILLION A DAY FOR ROADS
Every ' State in Union Aronsed to
Importance of Work.
MORE THAN EVER IN HISTORY
Director Page of United State Office
of Public Roads Tell of Result
of the Great Cam
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, June 4. (Special Tele
mllllon dollars a day Is the record that
will be established throughout tha United
States as the expenditure for improving
and maintaining public roads. Never be
fore In the history of the country has
there been such Interest in the Improve
ment of highways and with the legislatures
of the states appropriating millions of dol
lars for this purpose, the good roads move
ment has received Its greatest Impetus
since the foundation of the republic.
The-money that will be expended on the
roads of this country during the next six
months will be more than ever before
In the same period of time. In 1904 the
total expenditure for the construction and
maintenance of roads and bridge In the
United States amounted to about 80,000,000,
but ths expenditure for this purpose tn
1911 will aggregate about 1140,000,000. Ex
clusive of Sundays and legal holidays, the
outlay for roads will amount to $1,000,000
a day during the present road building
season. This includes . all moneys raised
by local taxation, bond tsues, state appro
priations and private subscriptions.
Every State Aronsed.
"Every state in the union," said Logan
Waller Page, director of the United States
office of public roads, in telling of the re
sults of the great campaign for good roads,
"seems at last to be thoroughly aroused
to the benefit derived from Investments
In good hlghwajs. In California the state
has Issued $18,000,000 in bonds with which
to build a system of state highway. Thl
work will begin during the present season.
In the state of Connecticut about $2,260,000
will be expended this year out of the state
treasury for trunk line ' and state aid
toad. Of the $6,000,000 bond issue recently
authorised in Maryland over $1,250,000 will
be available this year for trunk line and
state aid roads. Massachusetts will expend
from state revenues over $1,000,000 for the
construction and maintenance of state
Five Million la New York.
"It is expected that at least $5,000,000 will
be expended i on atate aid roads and on
trunk line systems In the stats of New
York, In addition to $7,000,000 already raised
by local taxation. More money Is being
devoted to road Improvement in New York
than in any other state In the union, and
the percentage of improved roads in that
I state baa Increased from 7. per cent in
1904 to 60 per cent in 1900.
"Over $2,000,000 is available in North Car
olina from bond Issues tn the various coun
ties for road Improvement this year and
the legislature has authorized the con
struction of a road from the Atlantic ocean
to the Tennessee line, a distance of 426
"In 1910 thirty counties In Ohio voted
$2,000,000 In bonds to be expended this year.
Ohio will also expend about $500,000 from
atate revenues for road Improvement. In
Pennsylvania the state-aid appropriation
will probably amount to over $1,000,000 and
a $50,000,000 bond issue is being considered.
Various counties in Tsnnessee will expend
$1,500,000 from bond issues. Over $1,500,000
will be expended from bond Issues in var
ious counties In Texas. In Virginia $2,600,
000 has been authorized by various counties
to be expended this year, while over $250,000
has been appropriated in the state of Wis
consin In accordance with the state aid
The prospect for a complete system of
public roads through ths United States is
better now than ever before In the his
tory of the country, and a uniformity of
recent good road laws gives promise that
this country will eventually take Its place
with Francs In having ths most sensible
system of road supervision and main
