The urgent need of better roads
throughout the county and also of
better country school buildings has
been thoroughly demonstrated the
past winter by the fact that weath
cr rendered the roads so bad chil
dren could not get to and from
school in several communities, and
then in many instances buildings
are so badly construsted it was al
most impossible to make the chil
dren comfortable therein, much
sickness among pupils resulting
therefrom. Good roads and good
schools go hand in hand.
We notice that other counties
over the State have taken steps to
issue bonds of from $50,000 to
$150,000 for the purpose of con
structing good roads, and we see
no reason why such a move should
not be made by the people of Ben
ton County. Fifty thousand dol
lars would be profitably spent i
the country roada wrere improved
and we believe the increased value
of farming lands and the numer
oua benefits to be derived by both
town and country people would be
worth at least $100,000 to Benton
County inside three years. This
is a matter the county court would
do well to investigate, and while i
is too late to secure authority from
the general assembly to make sue
a bond issue, it is not too early to
agitate it for two years hence. W
would like to hear from some of our
country citizens on the subject.

but must, as a result of his defeat
in Cleveland by Mayor Johnson.
mre his dictatorship with Sena-
or Horaker and George B. Cox of
Cincinnati. This information is
of especial interest because of the
act that the Ohio Republicans
lold their State convention in June
o select a candidate for governor
and Mr. Hanna has already select
ed his candidate, Myron T. Her-
rick. In selecting Mr. Herrick,
Senator Hanna turned down Gen
eral Dick of Akron, now a member
of Congress. General Dick has
ong had gubernatorial aspirations
and there are those who believe he
will land the plum this year de
spite Senator Hanna. Meanwhile
the mere suggestion of a factional
fight in Republican ranks strikes
terror to the Ohio Republican pol
iticians because of the recognized
strength of Tom Johnson.
