Bepresentalive Stocking's Country
Road Bill is Inadequate,
AS WAS THE GOVERNOR'S PROJECT.
If Would Cost $2,500,000 in this County,
Nearly Ten-Fold More.
WHY JOT LET CRIMINALS BUILD BOADS
Governor Beaver in his inaugural ad
dress echoes the conviction frequently ex
pressed in The Dispatch during eeveral
years past, that "the civilization of a coun
try is marked by its roads," and refers to
the "soldiering" indulged in by the granger
and his sons, nephews, uncles, etc, public
money being expended almost fruitlessly
from year to year iu the filling up of a hole
here and there. The Governor says:
It is safe to say that no expenditure of public
moneys yields so little in return as the road
taxes of Pennsylvania. Onr entire system of
road laws or rather our road lavs which lack
system should he thoroughly revised and cod
ified. They served their purpose when tempor
ary roads were to be laid out and cheaply mad o
through unbroken forests and over lands
which had but little value. The time has come
when it will be ecouomv. in every way, to
build our roads permanently and substan
tially. A thorough system should be devised and
authorized by the Legislature which conld be
put into immediate effect by onr older com
munities, and adopted by those which are
newer as their ability and the wants of their
people might require.
Representative Stocking has incubated a
bill to carry out the recommendations of
the Governor and it is said it will pass. It
In addition to the taxes already levied and
collected in the several boroughs, townships,
towns and cities of the State, the Board of
Commissioners shall have power to assess and
collect a tax not to exceed one mill on the dol
lar on all property taxed for county purposes,
which tax shall be disbursed by the Commis
sioners for laying out. grading, macadamizing
and otherwise impioving their roads. The
Commissioners shall attend to the work of
locating and all the other work preliminary to
the laying out, grading and macadamizing of
the roads and shall let the contracts for the
latter in the same manner as the contracts for
bridge building are now let.
The bill is a good one, so far as it goes;
but its inadequacy will be seen at a glance
when the situation is laid bare. For in-'
stance, it has become an imperative necessi
ty that the borough of Coraopolis shall have
at least three miles of road that will cost
55,000 a mile. The assessed value of the
borouch would vield under such an assess
ment $240 a year. The interest on 515,000
would be, at 5 per cent, S750 a pear, so that
the millage would pay less than one-third of
the interest, and unless three miles are made
the work would be useless, as less than that
amount would afford no relief whatever.
The present road tax is scarce sufficient to
keep the Jamestown weeds and poison vines
down and fish lor swamped inhabitants on
the rest of the roads in that borough: and.
were the three miles proposed to be made
built on the 1-miil assessment, the borough
might at some time be knocked down under
the hammer to satisfy creditors.
In the purely farming districts, where
land is assessed at but about $60 per acre,
it would be still worse. In Allegheny
countv at least 500 miles would be required
to be built at once in order to give any kind
of satislaction, and this
WOULD COST $2,500,000.
The millage proposed would yield but
$300,000 a year, of which $125,000 would go
to pay interest. It isn't likely that the
cities of Pittsburg and .Allegheny and sur
rounding boroughs, that would be required
to pay more than half the tax necessary to
carry out Legislator Stocking's idea, would
be willing to be thus assessed, after they
have spent many millions of dollars to grade
and pave their streets, and partial work
would create dissatisfaction. "It wouldn't
be a square deal, and they would, in all
probability, say to the honest granger, "we
can get along without your potatoes,
cabbage, hay, milk and scores of other
products, for we can have them brought by
rail 2,000 miles as cheaply as you lurnish
If a farmer didn't live on a line of rail
way, he could content himself by consum
ing his own products, or get them to the
city unassisted. He must buy in the city,
and railways have knocked his market into
a cocked hat,
FORCING HIM TO COMPETE
with Florida, Georgia, Alabama, North
and South Carolina in one direction aud the
entire territory between Pennsylvania and
the Rocky Mountains in another, and even
It will be evident to the most obtuse in
tellect that Legislator Stocking's plan will
But there are other ways of effecting the
object aimed at. The turnpike law of Ohio,
though not giving absolute satisfaction, in
that stock raisers are not benefited to the
same extent as grain raisers and market
men, works more satisfactorily-than would
the one proposed in this State. By the
Ohio law, farmers lying nearest a road," and
presumably most benefited by it, pay a cer
tain amount per acre annually, and others
in proportion, much in the same manner as
benefits are assessed in this city for sewerage.
The Ohio law has worked hardship, but. on
the whole, it has been beneficial.
LET TELONS MAKE EOADS.
A proposition has on several occasions
been urged m this paper, and was proposed
in the Legislature two years ago, which
would afford partial relief. It was that
criminals in onr jails, penitentiaries and
workhouses should be put at making roads.
They cannot be profitably employed in in
stitutions where work is furnished them,
and humanity revolts at the cruelty of keep
ing them unemployed, thus destroying their
health and morals, if they have any; and it
does not seem that the State should be
forced to teach them trades when honest
American boys can get scarce any oppor
tunity of learning them. Where is the
justice of teaching an outlaw a trade when
honest vouths are forced to accept the
crumbs that may be left?
The most radical trade unionist cannot
object to the employment of criminals at
rondmaking, and 5,000 able-bodied felons
might be furnished profitable employment
for all time to come without taking the
bread out of any honest man's mouth. In
the case of an honest man awaiting trial and
acquitted, he ought to be paid for the work
extorted Irom him.
The County Commissioners evidently have
not had time to digest the matter, for Mr.
Mc Williams had no opinion to express, or
at least didn't express any.
