If the money was loaned to the bank at 5 per cent for only six months, it would go to the customer at 7 per cent, or If it was loaned to the banks at 54 or 6 per cent, with priv ilege of renewals up to three years, it would be loaned to the customers at an advance of 2 per cent above the rate paid. Mr. Flannigan said that they are loaning 95 per cent on Liberty bonds and par on Victory bonds. Property statements are obliratbrv with all . notes turned in as collateral by banks. 1 he following resolution was adopt ed by the Alliance Lions club at its meeting Thursday evening, and was immediately read to the bankers: Whereas, it is a well known fact that the recent restriction of credits in western Nebraska, as well as other localities, has resulted in serious in jury and financial harm to this entire territory, and Whereas our progressive bankers have shown their spirit of helpfulness and their desire to be of material aid and assistance by their recent action in organizing to secure federal aid for our stockmen and our farmers, and Whereas we understand that they are now in session, therefore be it Resolved that we. the members of the Lions club of Alliance in regular session, do hereby endorse the work al"-fiv done hv our bankers, and be it Resolved that we extend to them our expression of hearty support and approval and be it Resolved that we urge upon them the necessity of prompt and immedi ate action and that we urge them to continue their efforts, in order that needed funds be brought into our ter ritory for the stimulation of business and the restoration of our spirit of progress, and be it Resolved that we tender a copy of these resolution at this time to the bankers now in session, GET TOGETHER ON ROAD PROGRAM FOR THE COUNTY ' (Continued from Page 1.) they would meet this road at Letan, on the county line at the place where the tracks enter the county. , The matter was regarded as settled. Then, a week ago, the Morrill county commissioners, over the protest of an Alliance delegation, designated a to tally different route. The road as des ignated goes north from Angora to Bonner, some nine miles west of Alli ance. Under this plan the Box Butte commissioners would have to build a road to a point out in the middle of the sandhills, some twelve or fifteen miles out of Alliance, to connect with it To Call in State Engineer. The commissioners decided that in asmuch as they had Been asked to go on record as to the Morrill road, and. had agreed to meet it near Letan. they wouki stand by their agreement A letter from the state engineer a office was received by the commissioners thisi week, asking them to make plans to connect with the Bridgeport road. Division Engineer .Gaddis was in Alli ance Wednesday, and urged them to designate the route desired by the i neighboring county. I It is planned to ask State Engineer Johnson to come to Alliance to meet with the Box Butte and Morrill com-i misaioners, and see if the track road cannot be used. It is pointed out that the sate engineer's office wishes a ScottbblufT road, and that the road to connect with the Bridgeport road can not be used for but a small portion of this. It is thought that if the fctate en gineer will come ,and give a definite statement of the roads the state will approve, some definite action can be taken. The commissioners made it plain that if the Morrill county commission ers insist on a connecting road with the Bonner strip, which ends in the sandhills, they will see if, as a com promise, the Broadwater road cannot be built It is declared that the Bridge port road, as placed at present, will not serve any gre at number of people in either Box Butte or Morrill coun ties and that a possible compromise, whereby the Broadwater road and a road through the western end of the two counties, giving a straight route from Bayard to Crawford, should prove acceptable. A point in favor of such a compro mise is that the North Star highway, if not dead, is slowly dying.. It orig inated in Colorado, and according to Commissioner Carrell, who has been over that route recently, the Colorado organization has ceased to exist The Broadwater route, on the other hand, is a part of a national north and south highway, the G-P-C which is going to go through. Objections to Bonner Route. The designation of the Bonner route is meeting with considerable objection, not only in Alliance, but in Morrill county. It is understood that Hall & Graham, through whose ranch it goes. will contest the routing and fencing of it tnrougn tneir ranch, and while the right of the state to condemn land for road purposes it not denied, there is some question whether a road can be condemned unless it follows section lines. This is an added reason why the track road from Angora to Alli ance should be followed. It is under stood there is now a remonstance being circulated in Morrill county, which ia being lagely signed. According to statements made by Division Engineer Gaddis, the next road to be luilt must be a north and south connection, and after that the state authorities are in favor of a road between Scottsbluff and Alliance, It Im planned to take the matter up with the head of the state bureau, and see exactly what roads will be accept able. It is believed that with the commissioners and the Alliance and Box Butte county road boosters work ing together, real progress can at last be made in road construction. There are still some $48,000 of federal aid funds available for use in the county, and this is believed sufficient to Ut.e care of the present program. , Plenty of County Roads. The Hashman road will be kept up as a county road, under present plans, and a series of feeder roads will be built over the county, connecting all parts of it If the state authorities Insist on making Box Butte connect with the Bonner route, it is believed that a county road can be built saving state maintenance for Scottsbluff and Broadwater routes. A proposed county road will go through the western part of the county some of the.e days, to connect Bayard with Crawford. This road has already been marked with red and wnite by Crawford and Bayard Jjuidid uoji jo 69)b iq-MAag naooq will be placed along ,the entire route, i All thre of the Bor Butte commis sioners spoke and acted in a way which "showed that, so far as they were con cerned, there was nothing to do but ret together. The session was noted by an entire absence of acrimonious discussion. Chairman Duncan of the hoard produced map. made four years ago, at which time a road pro gram for the county was framed. This map showed that the commissioners ut that time favored a road to Heming ford along the Burlington right-of-way, and from Hemingford to Craw ford. It showed also that a road had been designated north from Alliaace, angling toward Hay Springs inste id of Chadron, as it has been constructed. The map also showed the Potash high way and a designated strip along the Burlington tracks to the southwest, to ward Angora, reaching to the county line. The agreement reached i3 in line with the road program as origin ally planned, when state and federal aid first came into existence.
