Small was one of the principal speakers at tl^e Southern Appalachian Good Roads Congress, at ABbevllle.* " yesterday. Th? Mawh MinhMrv^MVfchin ad dress was one of the features. The ~Kews gives ~belpw thr extract: "Congressman Small addressed the congress at the afternoon session on 'The Mountains afid Seashore, Con nected by Good Roads.' Mr. Small made a splendid which, he intelligently discussed the problems, of securing construction of roads.' He declared thst~he was in favor of a general Appropriation by Congtess for road Construction r and- wottld-ve*? for such; but advised the people not to depend upon such appropriations,' re citing the difficulty to, establish an Appalachian forest. He was hopeful that within a few years Congress would decide to mal:e appropriations for the National forest, as well as for road construction. The only ^ray that State aid could be utilised, he said was by having a fund from whl(& a certain amount of aid could be exT tended those counties which voted bonds for roads; only .the deserving one, those which, showed a desire, sharing in the fund.w He firmly de clared his position that taxation for road "bullying was necossary and rights thai where large HIBV of mon ey was demanded at once, bonds should be Issued. This matter should be laid before the people. 'I believe that high taxes for schools and roads ls~VheThighe8t condition of any pontl^ cat party,' he declared. After statng that much better connection betweea ;the East and West Is not only de sirable; but it would mean much for the social and commercial develop ment of the State, Mfr. Small declared, 'If we are to bring this great move mcntto a fruition, then pypmtioi. . |egate must go forth as a miss^jfca^ and preach the doctrine of good roads and taxation."

The fire was gaining constantly, tonight, and while it continues there is little hope of the rescuers being able to reach the imprisoned men. All the men rescued were badly in jured. The men employed In the collierres on Vancouver Island are of the bet ter class of British miners, are well paid and have comfortable homes.

I ?The rescuer^ hoped the flamea would die^down so as to permit the rescue of {the entombed, but their chances seemed hopeless.

The difficulty ot se curing competent and faithful enum erators 1s very great. The length of service: Is very Short 13 days in the cities and 30 days il< the' country dis tricts.

Zurich. Oct. 7. ? Edgar W. Mix, the only American contestant In* the In ternational balloon race for the Gor don Bennett cup. In which 17 bal loons started from here October 3, has won and will take the cup bark to the United States. He Is from^Co lunjbi'3, Ohio. _ . . '.Mr. Mix. landed north of Warsaw, In- Russian Poland, at 3 o'clock Tues day morning- He won with plenty of time to spare from Alfred Leblanc, the French pilot, his companion in 4ho Str l^ouis Face of 1907, -who came down at Kubln', irungkry, Monday af ternoon. The first news of Mt. Mix's landing was conveyed in a personal despatch to- the Associated Press dated Ostro lenka. The aeronaut said: , . "I landed In the midst of a large pine tree iirtfce forest of Gutova, west of Ostrolenka<- ami" worth of Warsaw at 3 o'clock Tuesday morning. I en countered a heavy rain. My ballast was exhausted when I came down. At present I am in the hands, of the police, .but All la going well; "I had bad weather Sunday, night. It was cloudy and rain fell and 1 used half of my ballast before morning It is evident that ineplte of the discouragement of drifting onward without knowing his location, the American aeronaut husbanded his ballast and kept his balloon afloat, un 111 the last ounce of sand was genu. He made his journey through fog and blinding rainstorms which compelled all the other pilots to descend. After crossing the Swiss and the Austrian Ainu. Qaataln Messner, one of the Swiss pilots, reported that his clothes ' were covered with ice to a thickness of half an inch. Meesner reached an altitude of IS, 000 feet. Of the division of balloons which were carried more to the southward. LeBlanc, ope of the French pilots, reached the farthermost point. He covered a distance estimated at 1,015 kilometres ? 630.31 miles). ~MessnerT distance was about the same as Le JJalnc's and Col. Schaeck, a Swiss en trant, covered 493.69 miles.

Ittjs Impossible to explain why Mr. Mix should have been molested by the- Russian |K>li<e, as In anticipation j of a landing in Russia, each of the | pilots was proVTd'^a_at Zurich. before , starting, with A special Russian pass port guaranteed by the Russian mln - ' lster to Switzerland to protect them | against annoyance. The American embassy at St. Pet WlbBTg 1ms been ad vised of Mr. Milt's predicament and asked to take tha matter up at once with the Russian authorities. The committee sitting at Zurich has Issued an unofficial gstjmfltp _ oL the distance covered by Mlx? which it states to be 1.120 kilometres ( about 69 n miles) or 3290 kilometres (198 miles) more than LeDlanr. the IBBIB'ifiUBr. An exact classification of the per formances of the, contestant* will be Impossible, until their log books ar rive, but Mf. Mix Is an easy winner. Alfred LeBlanc. representing France, and Captain Messner, representing Switzerland. each of whom made slightly over 80Q Kilometres (apou t 496 miles) are both naftied for sec ond placc, but this probably will not be determined until the official an nouncement is made. .
