THE TRIBUTARY REGION IN KEN
TUCKY , ,
In discussing tho lmportanco of good
wagon roads tho Padueah 'Kentuoklau'
"No city over did, ever can, or over
will flourish and' prosper without' good
roads ponotratiug the lmmodlato section
of country on which it is depending for
supplies of fresh meats vegetables etc.,
and"" from which It must draw tho
local trade that sustains the mass of its
population. To make a city then, it is
necessary to mako good roads that will
developo the surrounding country."
Our citizens have become deeply im
pressed with tho truth so woll expressed
by our cotempora'ry, and will sanction
any movement of our authorities that
has In view the construction of tho
roads that will placo the surrounding
country in easy aud sutllclont commu
nication with our city. Chief nmoug
these thoroughfares wo regard the con
templated extension of the Cairo and
Bland vlllo road to Hlnckleville and
Mayllcld. The region of country It will
traverse is one of the richest, in an agri
cultural point of view, in Kentucky, and
already peopled by an intelligent and
thrifty population. These peoplowill give
labor and money to secure the road, In
accordance with their means, and when
placed in communication with ui
bysuch means, will prove the mainstoy
of our tobacco market, and most desira
ble patrons of our grocers, dry goods
dealers aud business men generally.
One of tho objects of the IJIand vllle meet
ing was to dcvlso means for the opening
of this road. A number of our citizens
purposed attending, to hear to our "Ken
tucky friends the assurance that Cairo is
deeply interested iu the project, and will
manifest her Interest in a substantial
manner. The unpropltlousness of the
weather forced a postponement of tho
meeting, but only for a short time. The
call for the conference still remains, and
i-linn i i!n- U flrmt fnlrn mint find will
respond. The road toMaylleld is worth

value of a business connection witli our
Kentucky friend, uml W wllltni: to bear

ROADS INTO KENTUCJCy.
The 'KentucViau' says that the ques
tion with Padueah Is "roads or no roads."
If the auswer is "no roads," then the
ebb tide will How back aud leave tho
towu stranded In a thousand times worae
condition than before; "for this same
tide," continues the Mventuckiau,'
"has been taken by Cairo and
will assuredly lead her on to fortune by
giving her a trade that of right belongs
to Padueah. The magnificent tobacco
trade of north McCracken as well as of
north and south Ballard is not all thatjis
in danger. Cairo has determined to push
her roads ou to Mayllcld, and no doubt
but that other rouds will branch from
there to Murray, Calloway county, aud
to other points south and west." ' '
What is true of Padueah is true of
Cairo. Good wagon roads to the sur
rounding country are ludlspeusable re
quisites to tho growth aud prosperity of
tho city. What we may accomplish by
striking quickly and determinedly for tho
trade of the neighboring counties In
Kentucky Is plainly indicated by our
cotemporary. A richer goal wo wot not
of. Shall we win it while we may?

When persons selected for high office
