The report from all over the
county show noted, improvement
in relation'to the gooi road move.
Voters are telephoning, writing
and coming into headquarters to
offer what ever assistance possible
to promote this great move.
Good Road speakers have been
going day and night for the past
ten days and from every section
comes most flsttering reports ex
cept one precinct that of Brodhead,
where the sentiment is very strong
against the Bond issue. A poll
of the county has iust been com
pleted which shows conclusively
that the bond issue is going to
pgrrv aud by a good safe majority.
However we want to urge upon all
good road advocates to keep up
the faght, don't gefc over confident
and lose any ground that has

just as certain as that .the day

roads movement. Now. I am for
good roads and the bond issue to
build them, becanse it is the only
way to get roads. I will try to
tell you in a few words whyl a'm
for good roads. I think we are' as
much entitled to them as we are
the gold paved streets above and
as responsible if we fail to get
them. Without the effort we
are sure in both casestofail. Now
dear taxpayer before you cast'your
vote agaiust this issue, think how
little it will cost you and what, a
relief it will be when the burden
is lifted from the poor poll tax
payer and the man who by reason
of his .six days wor,c on the road
pays the largest road tax of any
other class of people in the county
Nearly every man says give us
good roads aud if you waut good
roads, you are certainly not voting
what you preach, if you vote
against the Bond Issue.
Now my friend tax paver, if we
don't vote' for the bond issue. I
feel like we have not voted our
will, for our will is for good road.
aud it we fail to vote .that way the
almighty dollar in view must have
swung us to the left on the issue.
My dear friend poll tax payers;
Iicts. to 45 cts. tax payer, who
are more benefitted than any body
and who counts in number 2i8a
persons, who as a whole would
only pay $390.94 tax and to value
six days work each year at $1.00
each, makes a total of $13,134(00
that this same class o people pay
road tax. Now can you stand for
that? No, 1 see that we are
benefitted and I believed that our
people will see it that way on
