It was considered the best policy to
ask the board of supervisors to take
immediate action in the matter of the
issuance of a call for a bond issue for
road purposes the call to cover at
least 100000 A vote was taken on
the motion and it was the unanimous
opinion of those present that such
action be taken
It was also voted to call a meeting
of delegates from all the counties in
the north of Arizona to meet in King
man on the 28th day of January 1913
and organize the five iorthern coun
ties into an association to be known as
the Sauta Fe Grand Canyon Needles
lioute Association that as soon as the
business for which the meeting was
called was complete that all the mem
bers go on to Needles and San Bernar
dino where a complete organization
covering the whole route from the
New Mexico line to that city be form
ed the meeting at San Bernardino to
be held on the 30th of January
Notices of the call are now being
prepared and will be sent out the first
of the week
Gen E S Clark stated that Pres
cott and Yavapai county were in hearty
accord witn the movement and a large
delegation would be sent to Kingman
to take part in the organization of the
counties association
The whole range of bettering road
conditions in this county was covered
by the members of the association and
big results will soon be apparent It
was considered best at this time to
have a survey made of the various
outlets from Kingman west and select
ou3 that presented the greatest possi
bilities to the people As soon as this
survey is made which will be within
the next two weeks work will be done
on the route to make it passable for
automobiles to the Topock bridge the
grading up of the road to the proper
level to be left until money from the
proposed bond issue is available This
work is to be done by private sub
scription In the meantime the ferry
opposite Needles is available for auto-
