lour road tneory appears
pretty on paper, but we " opine it
put to practice it will be a horse
of another color. Issuing4 'the
bonds would be a light job.
Enough bonds could be issued in
a very short time to bankrupt
the county. Issue some to start
the ball to rolling, and then oth
ers to complete the good begun
work, on and on indefinitely un
til your one hundred thousand
dollars would be but the entering
wedge, while there will be more
and more to follow, and if ever
completed it would be a case of
robbing Peter to pay Paul. A
few would be benefitted at the
expense of the many, until the
men owning farms had better
sell them at half the present
Drice, and emigrate to avoid the
tax. No one would want to in
vest money in land with such a
debt hanging over it, and of
course the price will depreciate
until this could all be completed,
and then it would be likely to
advance some after they had
paid out almost what their farms
were worth in taxes. We have a
road tax already quite sufficient
ifproperlv expended, to keep
our roads in good condition.
They have been greatly injured
by the heavy loads of logs and
mmoer, out tms win soon oe a
thing of the past. Most of the
time our roads are better than
v. 1 1 i i i n
rougn rocK roaas, excepting a
few chug holes and ruts made by
log wagons. Of course to have
macadamized roads, and all of
us have automobiles and nothing
to do but ride in them is some
thing to be desired by many of
us, but if wishing would buy
horses beggars would all ride.
Bfb. Harris don't be obstreper
ous or write flippantly of the few
toiling farmers who have tried
to lay aside a small pittance for
a rainy day. When they get old
it may be handy with which to
pay for "little things at the store,
and if there was no,- property
owned by our citizens, where
would we get meansrwith which
to run our county affairs. ..Whenl
jw oppress theL.yepmanry of our
country,, we destroy its prosper
ity. We have known many to
regret their extravagance, but
few if any, to regret their econ
omy. We close lest we weary
you with our much sound doc
trine. Very Truly,
