LEVY ROAD TAX
j County JuiIro Ton Velio mnl Com

the mow county court, visiU'il Atli
liuiil Knlunlny for the purpose of
holding conferences in n ltuHinc wny
with tho rrftMcntH of Itoiul District
No. 1. The trip was successful
Jicnrly every prominent citizen of the
district Imviiij been Been nml they
wero picnscil to hnvo tho new offic

Messrs. Tou Velio and Icevor cnllcl
on Qcoivo W. Dunn nt his fnnn nud
dismissed tho situation with him n
well ns with mnny others and beforo
rcturuinR homo pot in touch with
hcvcrnl angles of tho road niluatian
in that section. Ono fanner. Charles
Homes, informed tho court that there
was one hundred miles of road in tho
district. Petition wero circulated
calling for a rncctini of the tnxpay
ors of tho, district for Saturday,
December L'8. at 12 o'clock p. ui. at
Neil crcok school houe, for the pur
jhjso of settling tho question of levy
ing n special tax for the district. All
tho citir.cus of tho district wore in
favor of BiRiiinj; tho cnll and there
was n general sentiment in favor of
lovyinj; tho tax though beveral were
opiwscd to it subject to changing
their mind after considering tho pro
The only discordant note seemed
to be tho attitude of K. I). Uripjs
who was energetically certain that
thn tux levy would be. turned down
ghing as his reason the theory that
tho most of tho residents in the dis
tricts lived near Ashland and had
good roads and owned valuable pro-
lIHirlic and wero satisfied with the
situation as it was and wero not
concerned very much about tho peo
ple who lived back in tho Dead In
dian and Green Springs mountain
and other less populous sections of
the dixtrict. Asked if ho had any
affirmative t-uggestions to offer
Hriggx pniM)-cd dividing the district.
Mr. Icovcr pointed out that the dis
trict could not bo divided until Jan
uary, while tho state law compiled
the additional tax levies 'to bo mtule
by the people in the dUtriets during
the month of December, hence Mr.
llriggh' proposal would merely delay
Ihu district in gelling any benefit
from any additional levy until the
year 1014. One of the back wood
district residents humorously de
scribed Mr. IJriggs' pruxsul by com
paring it to Ihu plan of the Arkansas
Traveler in roofing hU beuse: "when
it ruined he Couldn't do it, and when
it didn't ruin he didn't need it." The
new members of tho court tried to
get Mr. ltriggs to rearrange his pro
gram so ho could get the horse be
fore the cart believing the roads
could bo traveled better that way.
They left the suggestion with Mr.
llriggs thut tho issue of tho taxlevy
took jilaco in December, and if the
district would vote the levy tn
money would be expended in the dis
trict as it was formed at that time.
Thou in January the citizens of the
district could take up the matter by
changing the district and that mut
ter could be taken up with the people
of tho district with a new of arriv
ing at u jiiht and reasonable adjudi
cation of thut pnijxiMtioii. in this
way n start at better roads could be
jnado at onco by co-oiopjting to
gether in plcco of placing oWneh's in
tho wny if progression.
Messrs. Ton Velle und Lecvcr were
well pleased with the general interest
manifested by tho pcoplo of tho dis
trict in their affairs am took an
optimistic view thut tho December
meeting would evnlvo n forward step
satisfactory to nil concerned.
