A friend of ours who has "been
thoro" asks us to pour out the vials of
wrath upon tho head of the overseer
of the road district In which Ilea tho
road from tho brldgo over Culvro to
Alexandria. Wo would do so very
willingly, for wo nro not slow to
speak our mind on the subject of bad
roads, did wo know that official to bo
in fault. Tho road in question is
disgrace to tho county. It has
never boon worked since it was cut
out for a private road. In most
places two wagons cannot pass each
other. Thcro is not n sluglo cultlo-
post on tho whole road, whllo luiiu
inorable other roads cross it, render
iug it Impossible for strangers to
traverse it without mistakinir the
way. When Culvrc Is past fording,
as has been the case sovcral times this
season, thcro Is considerable travel
over tins roua. miio universal ver
dict is that it is tiucqualcd uiuouir
bud roads. This Is not the first time
that our attention has been called to
the matter. Tho county has placed a
costly and substantial bridgo over
Cuivre, but it has failed to provido
decent road by which to reach it; so
that tho usefulness of this structure
Is greatly impaired.
Wo uro not advised as to where tho
blamo should bo placed. AVe don't
know whether or not this is a public
road ; if it is not, wo think the county
court Is culpable; if it is, tho fault
lies between the overseer ot tho dis
trict and tho detective system under
which our public roads aro worked.
Most likely tho overseers has accom
plished his whole duty, under tho im
perfect working of tho present law.
Most of tho overseer of the county
havo proved themselves faithful and
efficient officers. This is due to tho
fact that better men than heretofore
havo been selected, nud that the
county court has weeded out, as far
as possible, all incompetents. Wc
contend that tho law is dcfcolivo In
Its results, becauso under its system
the proper amouiitof work canuot be
put upon tho roads'' A most serious
objection is tlmtlt. allows persons to
work out tholr road tax instead of
paying It to tho collector. Export
once thus far has demonstrated that
this cluss of work will not accomplish
one-fourth as much as hired labor.
Wo hope tho legislature at the coming
session, will apply tho proper remedy,
and perfect a system by which our
road can be improved.

Not Oub Fault. Tho secretary
