A CITIZEN'S VIEWS
ON BOND MATTER
Gives Some Reasons Why He
Thinks Issue Should Be
Opposed
Editor Iron County Record:
I sec by the editorial on the
bond election that you are in
favor of the proposition, and as
there are always two sides to
every question, f want to say a
few words on the 6thcr side of
this one.
Of course good roads- are vkery
nice to have, ,and where they are
really needed by the general
public are a matter of great im
portance and as sucn should ap
peal strongly to our consider
ation and support but in the first
place can we afford them, that
is, are we able to pay for them.
There are some people in this
world that can always afford
all they can get, for the question
of payment does npt trouble them
at all, thoy always let the fellow
who puts up the money for them
bear that burdejn, and in this
case if we could arrange it so
that the "bloated bondholders"
should carry the load we could
undoubtedly afford the remark
able system of county roads that
are indi:ated in the nctice of
bonding, but as the bord holder
is liPely to see to it that wo
shall pay the bills, and that with
good interet, it s plainly evident
to many, in fact I am safe in
saying, to the majority of
the taxpayers of Iron County
that the time has not come for
the incurring of a debt of fifty
thousand dollars for something
that experience has taught us,
YXe-...yfh travel in the ;pid
can get along tolerably well
without. There may comjfc a
time in the "sweet bye and
bye," when we shall have money
to spare for such an investment,
but at present we "have other
fish to fry."
At Cedar City we have very
urgent need of a twenty thous
and dollar school building to re
lieve the condition so cloquenly
set fourth in The Record a week
or two since. Wo also havo
urgent need of ten or fifteen
thousand dollars to buy good
iron pipe to repace the old rot
ton wood pipes that experienco
Ksc. 3 The Secretary of Stntc is
hefuby ordered to plvo this prbposi
tlon to ho published In at least one
newspaper In every county In the Stnto.
where a newspaper Is printed and pub
lished, for two months preceding the
next general election.
Section 3. This proposition shnll
be submitted to tho electors of this
State at the next general election for
their approval or disapproval. A. I of
ficial ballots used nt such election
shall have printed or written thereon
the words, 'For the amendment of
Section 2, Article 13, of the Constitu

of property," "Yes," CNo." and shall
otherwise be prepared and sub'ii tted

has taught us are very poor I
make shift for our vejfter system. .
There are also qujc a lot of us
that need consider sums of ff
"the needful" to W cur debts
with, especially Me four and A
three fourths per-cent tax, that f
becomes delinquent next month,
and which is a strong object' '
lesson on the inexorable charac- J
ter of the debt we should incur f
in case we listen to the alluring jL
picture which the advocates of SI
this bonding measure present
to our view. And last and also jf
least in the estimation of the
writer, the urgent need we may 1
have if some very generous 1
persons have their way, of a
few thousand dollars to pay
our coming legislature- double
wages. Though as far as this fi
last proposition is concerned I J
think we are in but little danger j
of having the bill, to meet if
the electors will only take the
trouble to voice their sentiments 1
on election day. This proposition
to double the wages of the legis- I
lature seems about as unreason- - 1
able as was the amendment to -
the state constitution passed a mk
few years since increasirig the
salaries of a large batch of state - ,j
officials. Where on earth is the ,
sense cf paying the legislat
ors more, wages, when the ablest
men in the state are doing their
best to get the job at the pres
ent price? sv
But to return to the situation
! in the county on the ability to i
afford this road question. In
j Parowan the people are install-
ing a twenty-five thousand dol- ijr
1 lar water system, they have also M
a higher tax to meet this year jjj
than we have in Cedar City, m
and thqre is not the least doubt ffl
in the world that they also have "m
a due proportion of personal
debtB to liquidate. Another Hra
thing; the merchants in the m
county have discovered that they i-
carv no loriKorafford?, to. supports Tm
tho main reliance of so many of rifSf
us, and it is cash down, or see t-
the managr, which, with us poor I m
fellows who it is known are very 41
slow pay. amounts to the same i
thing. Under all these burdens J
it seems like adding insult to '
injury to suspect us of the 1
ignorance of being willing to 1
vote foi any measure that will : 1
add to our troubles. ,
In conclusion I just have this I
to say to my fellow taxpayers 1
let us bo sure that our senti-
ments on this and its relative, J 1
