Sends Extract of Address Outlining
Scheme to Marion County
Board of Trade
The secretary of the Board of Trade
has received from Mr. W. A. McRae,
commissioner of agriculture of the
state, an extract from an address
made by the commissioner at the Palm
Beach County Fair, March 5th, in
which is proposed a plan for building
good roads in Florida. Commissioner
McRae requests that his proposition
be given close study and that sugges suggestions
tions suggestions be made concerning it.
The extract is as follows:
The citizens of Florida have never
consented to vote for a state bond
issue for good roads. A number of
states have voted large bond issues
for road building, these bonds to be
liquidated by a direct state tax on
real estate and personal property.
We have come to the time, however,
when good roads are a public neces necessity
sity necessity in all of the counties of Florida,
and we should have them. The agri agricultural
cultural agricultural development, 'and, in fact, all
rural development is dependent on
good roads.
The following is a plan I wish to
suggest for raising a sufficient amount
of money to give the whole state of
Florida a system of good roads with without
out without placing a penny of tax on real
estate and personal property.
The oil inspection division of the de department
partment department of agriculture, with of a
cent per gallon on gasoline, kerosene,
etc., will put into the state treasury
this year approximately $50,000.
Change this tax to 1 cent per gallon
and the sum would be $400,000. The
automobile license tax will approxi approximate
mate approximate this year $400,000. If properly
regulated, this tax would reach $600, $600,-000,
000, $600,-000, thus making a total of $1,000,000
per.annuni from these two sources.
The average of eight hundred state
convicts on the public roads, at a
value of $500 per annum, is equal to
$400,000 in labor. Bond the state for
$20,000,000. The United States gov government
ernment government would supplement for an
equal sum, th sugiving $20,000,000
more to meet the state's bond issue.
Counting the $20,000,000 that would
be derived from a state bond issue,
hnhor VoillP af thp Rtnr.P rnnvirts. for
a period of'ten years will ffive a grand
total of $44)000,000 for a system of
cf040 u;u,oc
By abolishing the lease system of
county convicts, we would have an
average of 1600 laborers, worth $400
each per annum. This would add
$u,400,000 worth of labor for the
period of ten years.
If all of this $40,000,000 in money
and the $10,400,000 in labor was
avaialble for use under the state road
department, we could have at the end
of ten years a system of public roads
in Florida not equaled by any state in
the Union.
The S1.000.0U0 tax on motor ve
u:rlps anH rry, w;ii nav an annual
interest of 5 on the S20.000.000 of
gov-Ltlltp homis. Tne increase in notiula
thi& $20,000,000 in 25 years. This plan
would do awav with the two.miii state
tax we ow have and there
would be na state tax reauired on our
real estate and personal property to
- j
pay the interest on the bond issue, and
liquidate the same in the period of 25
There are 70,000 farms in Florida.
From these farms we market, in per perishables,
ishables, perishables, staples and live stock, 70.000
carloads of products, or approximate
ly 1,400,000 tons. Counting excess
labor, expense and delay, it would
cost at least $1 per ton more to get
these products to market over poor
roads than over good roads. This
means a direct cost to the producer of
$M00,000 per annum. This cost must

I J m
Cood roads, then, means a direct gain
to the producers of the state of not
less than $2,000,000 per annum in
marketing farm and rove products
alone. This $2,000,000 loss is enough
tc pay every farm mortagage in the
state in three years, to say nothing
of the moving to market of many
millions of dollars worth of poultryt
live stock and other products that
would be hauled annually over a sys
tem of good state roads.
Education is the transforming in
fluence of the world and the basis of
aH progress. Agriculture is also
basic. Upon it rests the commerce
of the world and even civilization.
Good roads are the veins through
which flow the very life's blood of
education, agriculture and commerce.
Good roads are one of the great
sources of life to any country, and
with better education, better agricul agriculture

With the Passing of "Small Business Business-Went
Went Business-Went Also the Feeling of Com Community
munity Community Interest
Not many years ago something hap happened
pened happened which changed the relations be between
tween between employer and employee. That
happening has had a marked effect
upon Industrial discontent. Something
wit lost out of the relation between
the owner and the men who worked
for hlrn. The human element, the per personal
sonal personal touch, between the boss and the
workers stopped. With Its passing tin tin-rest
rest tin-rest grew with great vigor. It was a
new kind of unrest, too. It was a last lasting,
ing, lasting, determined, resolute discontent.
This came to pass in the day that
small business entered the twilight.
In the day of the small plant, busi business
ness business was owned and run by a man, or
number of men, doing business as a
partnership. These men lived in the
, community iu which their men lived.
They worked with their men. In the
front of the plant was the office of th
Boss. He was on the Job. He wasn't
a hired boss, either he was the real
boss the owner. The sign under
.which the-business was run bore his
-name. It' Identified him with the busi business.
ness. business. The Boss had his home in the
city in which the plant was located.
His children went to the public school,
frequently to the same school to which
the children of his workmen went. If
he was a church-going man and gen generally
erally generally he was he and his family went
to religious services on Sunday to the
same church that many of his men and
their families attended. The men who
worked for him knew him, at least to
the extent of recognizing him when
'they saw him. He knew many of them,
'and recognized them with a nod or
"Good morning, when he saw them
on the street. Few people realized
,-how much this meant to harmonious
; relations in the Industrial world.
When working men had a grievance,
or thought they had, they took It di directly
rectly directly to the Boss. He talked It over
with them. He was reasonable and
fair. If the complaint was Well found founded
ed founded it was given consideration a rem remedy
edy remedy was found. The working man was
satisfied. He had had his say. He
was treated as a human being by a
human being. He felt he was part of
the business so did the Boas.
Regulated by Public Opinion.
In the day of small business, the
owner of a factory or plant who paid
his men an unliving wage was a
marked man In the community. Pub
lic opinion chastised him for his self,
ishness and inhumanity. The people
said he was a sweater, a slave driver,
and held him In contempt They con contrasted
trasted contrasted his good clothes, the style of
his family and his fine mansion, with
the rags his working men wore, the
hovels In which they lived. He wai
pointed out, hated, despised. The
thought of the community was that It
would be better for him and his to
give up some of their excess luxury
and give the men living wages. The
disgrace fell not only upon his head,
but It followed Ms wife and children.
When they went to church they were
looked upon as hypocrites, for all the
people knew that every day In the
week he was Insulting the Christ he
pretended to worship on the Sabbath.
Few men are so thick-skinned as not
to feel the lash of public opinion. It
isn't easy to bear the hate of one
neighbors. It -Is natural for men to
want the good opinion of their fellows.
In the day of small business, public
opinion held a lash over the inhuman
and greedy, kept hirers of men human,
but In the progress of the world the
small employer was doomed to go.
The partnership passed off the stage,
and with It the personal touch between
employer and employees. The corpo corporation,
ration, corporation, a soulless body, was born of
the law. It absorbed small plants and
small businesses. It collected under
a single roof thousands of men. The
corporation, the combination, the trust,
bad come. This new order of doing
business n fa large scale was efficient
economical. It eliminated waste and
duplication. It was a great, smooth smooth-running
running smooth-running machine. It represented prog progress
ress progress In doing the world's work.
The corporation name did not dis disclose
close disclose the owner of Big Business. It
whs an Impersonal, inhuman thing.
Frequently the stockholders did not
live In the cities where the plants were
located. The real owners were un unknown
known unknown to employees and public. Many
of the large shareholders had never
seen the plant. The men who worked
in the plants had never seen the men
for whom they worked. The man actu

ally running the business was only an
employee. He was paid a large salary
and It was made plain to him when he
was hired that his salary and his Job
depended on his ability to make profits.
The corporation was organized for mil millions
lions millions of dollars. The manager was ex ex-pfetetl

the dividend cheeks, the higher he was

Illinois Traveler Carries His House on
His Back.
The amphibious turtle has "nothing

on" Milton 11. Baker, a unnstian

Science nurse of Highland Park, 111.,
who recently started on a 5,000-mil ej
motorcycle trip through Florida. Llkq

the turtle, he carries his house on hlaj
back and can travel with equal ease

on land or water.

On his motorcycle he carries a;
twelve-foot folding boat of a type used
by explorers. When he comes to aj

lake he simply unfolds the boat, places

the motorcycle in it, attaches the mo

tor to the propeller shaft and goes

skimming over the waves. If the gas,
runs out or the engine goes dead, he
has a paddle. If the paddle snaps he
has a sail.
He also carries a tent, which he can
place over himself and the motorcycle
at night If on land, or over the boat
if on the water.
As a protection against swampy
ground he carries a waterproof floor-j
ing for the tent and an air mattress,
which may serve the double purpose
of a life preserver or an air tank to
beep the boat afloat.
But this does not complete the
equipment. There is a camping outfit,
a complete assortment of tackle for
catching Florida's famous green trout,
and a mosquito tent The whole outfit
is balanced on a motorcycle side car,
which folds up when in the boat.

of Its capitalization was wind, water,

fake a lie. The law that gave the
corporation a right to exist forgot to
keep It under control. The stock
was sold, shares representing fiction

as well as those representing value.

The Captain of Industry spoke of the

$400,000,000 of overcapitalization as a

"melon." The law should have writ

this stock was nothing more or less

Individual no longer had a chance to

was utterly meaningless In such a
large scheme. When he complained
he was told, "Take thing as they are,

men waiting to step Into your shoes."
. One of the first things the corpora corporation
tion corporation did was to deny to men the right
the law gave it the right to organize.
In defiance of their attitude the men

did organize and forged the strike as a
weapon with which to fight for their

rights. The law had not kept pace

with the times. It failed to furnish

protection. It failed to provide a rea

sonable control over these powerful

big combinations. The men asked for
the privilege of collective bargaining.

It was a simple request, a Just one;

Its meaning Is clear. The men wanted
the right to appoint a committee to

represent them and discuss with the

ployment. The directors, generally

men who never saw the plant, tele

graphed the employee boss, the man

ager, a direction to refuse the demand

for collective bargaining. There was
only one reply the men could make.

They made It. It was force the

Capitalistic Duplicity.
When the cost of living forced men
to ask for an Increase In wages they
were often met with the answer, "We
can't afford it." The men could not
afford to work longer for the wages
they were getting, because they were
unable to make both ends meet. The
pay envelope was not large enough.
The men pointed to the fact that the
answer given by capital was not true.
To show their good faith the capital capitalists
ists capitalists told the general public, "We are
only making 3 per cent on our capital ;
men who loan money get 5 per cent."
They did not tell the people they were
receiving 3 per cent oa $500,000,000,
while the real capital invested was
only $100,000,000. The sweat of men
was being used to pay dividends on
$400,000,000. If the dividends earned
