Here's wishing you a happy and a
p]osperous New Year.
THE PROPOSED ROAD LAW.
We reprinted in our last issue the
proposed road bill, submitted by the
chamber of commerce committee, and
060 the present road law and inspec- t
tor' law, so t h e readers might C
-ook over both and see in what ri-e
sPectz the two differ, and in what re
)Peots they art shilar. You will note
ihat the present road law does not 3
Provide for expert supervision. It "
does not provide for permanent work
by the chaingang. It does not provide
for 'work by a regularly organized c
force for the maintenance of the roads b
in each township. It does not pro
vide for the use of machinery neces
sary to the building of permanent
roads nor does it provide for the
mantenance of existing highways. a
The proposd bill provides for levying v
a two-mill tax and a $3.00 commuta- &
tion tax, which money shall be used
exclusively for the building and main
tenance of the roads, none of it to be
expended for bridges and ferries. Un- 0
der the presant law, the proceeds of
the 1 mill tax could be used'for build
ing-bridges and repairing bridges and 0
Manintaining ferries, and as a matter e
of Tct, it is counted into the general 0
ordinary county fund. d
Under the proposed bill the two mill
tax and the commutation tax are to
be kept as a separate fund and, after
providing for the maintenance of the
ha.ingang, it is) to be apportioned 0
among the townships in proportion t
the public road mileage in the respec
tive townships. In this way, the per- A
manent work to be dcne by the chain- I
gang will start in the centre of the ~
sounty and go out as rapidly as it cani
be done, and, in the meantime, each
township will have a fore of hands
under an efficient road builder work- 14
ing for several months in each year .5
in the ma.intenance of the roads.
We believe if the ideas contained in
the proposed bill are properly car
ied out, it would be only a matter of
a. short time when there would be good b
roads throughout Newberry county, t
and that at minimum of cost.
