Roads and Economics.
The condition of the common roads
has a very interesting economic hearing
of u direct nature, and an indirect one
not less important. In the matter ot
the earning capacity and value of horses
and other draft animals the common
roads have direct eti'eet. If a horse can
do one-third more work on a good road
and be in a working condition one-third
longer than he can on a bail road, then
his earning capacity, and hence his
value, is increased just one-third. This
assumption is based upon a very low os
mium, in it 1 1 prouHDi my , u it were
possible to make an exact calculation,
it would be found that the earning ca
pacity and the total length of service
able life of draft animals would be more
nearly doubled than increased only
The census enumerators of 181H)
found that there were in this country
1 4,213,s:?7 horses, valued at GS each;
2,331,027mules, valued at $78 each, and
36S4y,024 oxen and other draftanimals,
valued at ?1" each making a total of
r3,393,SS8 animals used on the roads,
at a total value of $l,721,o3',798. All
these homes and mules work at somo
time on the roads, and indeed much
the greater part of the total work done
by them is upon country roads and
If all the work done by them was
upon the roads, the increased valua
tion, based upon the above hypothesis
of earning capacitj', would be $ 73,84-V
i!GG, but as all the work is not done on
the roads it is only fair to reduce this
by one-half, and then we would have,
by a general improvement of the roads
of the country, our property in horses
and mules und other draft animals in
creased in value !?2,S(,)G,l)i2,C33. 1 feel
safe in assuming that with good roads
road vehicles would last one-half long
er and their value be increased at least
$2."0,m0,(mh). Taking these two sources
of increased valuation together we
should have an enhanced property
valuation of $".".(;,l22.r:i3, all brought
