IMPROVED COUNTRY ROADS;
Since the meeting of the mayors, in this
city, to consider tho matter of improved
country roads, the press of tho state havo
united quite generally'in calling public at
tention to tho question. It is agreed that,
bucauso of our deep and porous soil, Illinois
has the worst roads in tbe Union. Outside
of tho cities there are not 50 miles of good
road in the state. Wo havo 0,000 miles of
railroad, costing not less than $250,000,000,
and yet we have invested scarcely a dollar
in good, permanent highways. But now,
with an almost complete system of rail
roads, it becomes necessary to have good
highways in order to make thorn thorough
ly available. Then again, having these
largo and expensive lines of conveyance
completed, it bocomes possible for tho
pooplo to turn thoir energies to securing
improved highways, which are of more gen
eral use and ditoct benefit. Heretofore
they have boeu tolerably contented with
such roads as nature provided them with,
but with the distinct mental purpose to
havo butter ones just as soon as their con
dition would justify tho expenses. ' They
begin now to feel that tho time for a
change has come. They are willing to
grovel along in tbe soft mud no longer.
Such an embargo on their business and
prosperity cannot be tolerated. They want
good country roads. How to obtain them
is the quostion.
They can obtain a good macadamized
road-bed, 16 foet wide, it is estimated,
for 4,000 per milo. A good white cedar
pavement, of the same width, can bo laid
for 4,500 per milo. It would seoin that
such an expense was within reach.
Many years ago the Legislature of Ohio
passed a road law which has been effectual
for socuring a large miloago of good roads
n that atate. A writer gives the following
"The line of the BroDoaed martin anro.
ed, parallel to which on each side to the
distance of 2 miles lines aro also surveyed,
aod the lands on either side are taxed for
the purpose of improving the road, tho tax
per aero being apportioned according to tbe
proximity of the lands to the roads. These
free turnpike roads were mado under a law
enacted by the legislature of that state, and
Ohio to-day is blessed with cood roads in
nearly every county in the state, made under
mis law. Alter ttie tax was levied for build
ing a certain road, the people taxed for such
purposes were given 6 years in which to pay
it, making it comparatively easy upon the
"These roads were first eraded and rlitrh.
ed, after which broken stono to the depth
of ten Inches in tho center Hnd eitrht Inches
on tbe sides, was laid, the width being six
teen feet. Upon this stone basis gravel to
tbe Bame depth aud width was laid, which
made a most permanent and durable road
bed. The expenses of keeping these roads
in repair was very liht, and done in
the ordinary mcde of repairing the high
way by tbe usual road tux. It was found
that the ditching of the road w;w a great aid
to the drainago of the lands along the lines
of these highways."
On the principle adopted in Ohio that
of taxing the land for two miles on each
Bide of a macadamized road an improve
ment costing 4,000 per mile would entail
an average of f 1.55 per acre. If the adja
cent land was taxod $3 per aero and that
more remote $1, the improvement could be
accomplished, whi lo tho burden would be
It is estimated that in consequence of
railroad improvamenu in this state, 35,000,
000 acres of land havo been increased in
valuo $5 per acre. It is also stated, that
under the operations of tho Ohio road law,
lands ia the interior counties of that state
advanced from f 3 to $10 per acre in value.
The reasons for a similar or greater advance
in Illinois lands in consequence of im
proved roads, are too many and palpable
to be recounted. They are real and prac
ticable. Wo believe that rural communi
ties are ripe for tho advance. Lot the legis
lature this winter give tho poople a good
law on this subjact, aud before ten years
rolls around every county in this state will
have a system of excellent macadamized
