welcomed by a delegation of d opart men t

was drawn up at tho curb, each bearing

of tho Coontry.
When . two novernors, one from ths
north and the other from the south, a na
tional senator second to none In prom
inence, and. a senior stats senator, par
ticipate In a dinner (riven by leading; offi
cers of the American Automobile associa
tion, which function resolved Itself Into
a general discussion of good roads, some
substantial results are assured in the
fairly Immediate future.
During- the overnlKht stop of the Amer
ican Automobile association reliability
tour In Philadelphia, President Ilobert P.
Hooper, Chairman Howard Unngstretch
of the touring Information board and
Powell Evans, president of the Automo
bile club of Phlladelpla, gave a dinner at
the Union league with a Hat of guests
which Included Governor Tenor of Penn
sylvania, Governor Smith of Oeorgla,
Vnlted States Senator Holes Penrose and
State Senator Bprou. On the same day,
In the ride acroia New Jersey, Oovernor
Wilson had been the guest of Oovernor
Smith, who was a contestant In the Amer
ican Automobile association tour. The
next day Governor Tener, In his own car,
carried Oovernor Smith to historical
Gettysburg. When tho tour entered West
Virginia Oovernor Glasscock became the
oompanlon of Georgia's chief executive.
It wss a source of disappointment that
Oovernor Mann of Virginia could not find
It convenient to accompany the motor
cavalcade through the Shenandoah valley,
especially on the mountainous jsurney
from Staunton to Roanoke and then over
the Blue Ridge Into North Carolina. The
"old dominion" governor, throUKh per
sonal experience, would have realised the
great need and value ot a first-class
Interstate highway through scenery re
markable for grandeur and beauty. Uut
Oovernor Smith has a remedy which he
will undoubtedly seek to apply when he
takes his seat In the senate at Washing
ton, for he believes that a large part of
the aiountainous sections of Virginia and
North Carolina should be Included In the
extension of the conservation work of
the federal government. This would
mean up-to-date roads with provision for
their very essential maintenance which
must follow. '
Make tJettrsbnra; Accessible.
In the talk at Philadelphia, It de
veloped that Pennsylvania Is greatly
concerned in the building of roads that
will - make Oettysburg more accessible,
though there Is a pronounced feeling that
the Uncoln Memorial Highway should be
built from the National capital under
Federal supervision. This gradual Unking
of north and south by roads deserving
of the name unquestionably received a
decided Impetus at the Philadelphia gath
ering which In time they may come to
be looked upon as having been of mo
mentous weight In the progress ot high
way Improvement. One of those present
was P. J. Walker, president of the Cali
fornia State Automobile association, who
made It clear that the Paclflo Coast
strongly believes In national highways
which shall connect the Atlantic and Pa
clflo seaboards. Charles J. GUdden,
lonor of the touring trophy bearing his
ame; Henry K. Walton, ex-speaker of

among the other guests.
One thing which greatly Impressed the

George Coffey Wins
a Hollow Victory
. George Coffey won his habans corpus ac
tion to compel Chief of Police Donahue
to release hlra from custody Saturday
morning before Judge Day, but It was a
hollow victory. Donahue released him and
Deputy United States Marshal Hays ar
rested him on a warrant, charging aiding
the escape of a prisoner. The warrant
had been sent up. from Leavenworth.
Kan. After Coffey was acquitted !n dlr
trlct court Thursday, J. M. Macfarland,
Ms attorney, started habeas corpus ac
tion against Sheriff Tlralley, who was
holding him for the federal authorities.
When the case come up for hearing
Bralley had turned Coffey over to Chief
Donahue. By the time Macfarland got a
hearing against Donahue, the warrant
had arrived and the chief was perfectly
willing to let Coffey go.
