CHESTERFIELD, VA., February 24.?
Tho Board of SupervlsorS held tho flrst
meotlng of thls year hero yostorday. One
of the maln toplcs eoming up for dls
ousslon was tho ? worklng of Uio eounty
rouds, whieh nt thls tlmo nro In oxtrome
ly bad condltlon ln many plaeea through
oul tho county, nnd tho piopor nppllco
tlon of tho fund rectulred by a speclal
act of tho Loglslaturo for thls county to
bo eot aslde annually and dovotod lo suoh
work on tho roads an shall bo ot a por
rnnnont naturc. By thls act. whlch waa
passed ln April pt last year, each.fluper
vlsor Is nllowod ono-half only of tho road
lovy colloeted In hls lndlvldual dlstrlot,
and thls ono-hnlf ho appllcs ln patch

Judgment ho may thlnk proper', tho other
oiu.-h.alf Is requlred by Che act to bo set
apnrt and deposlted Into what ls known
as tho general fund for permruiant lra
provoments. , ,
Ovor thls goneral fund tho BUpcrvlsors
as a body have control, and no lndlvld?
ual momber can uso any part of tho
monoy wlthout tho consent and dlrectlon
of tho wh'ole board. The'suporvlsor from
Bcrmuda Dlstrlct argued agaltiBt tho now
low aa an unfortunato ono, atatlng that
tho one-half of tho road lovy ovor whlch
he ihnd control was not enough for our
rent domands for neeessary ropalrs to the
roads, but tho scntlment had been long
growlng ln this county that too much
monoy ls spent ln dolng work of such a
liifilng nature that no nbldlng good re
sults are obtalned, and as a rule tho new
law meets the approvol of the peoplo.
Tho supervlsors declded to hold nn in
formal consultatlon at tho Courthouso on
next County Court day ln rcgard to tho
best means of applylng the permanent Im
provemcnt fund, and steps havo been
taken to induco many repicsentntlve clt?
lzens of the county to appear at bhe moet

gestlons, that tho best thought of tho
pooplo may be drawn out, thus materially

llevhig them of the entlro responslbillty
for their aetlon ln the now work to bo
