The reason that some of the people in I'helps county are excited over the cost of this road is due to the fact that the County Engineer, who at one time was enployed by the State Highway department and after being informed that he was no longer needed by the department, was employed by Phelps county, ami he has continually made statements creating dissatisfaction and trouble in regard to this project After the work was completed and turned ever to the county for maintenance the county did not maintain the road for several weeks and then the County un( It &4tVi a Inrcnt orrnflintr moxltlnA ami inni tin the road to its i Will AXS I . original condition as finished by the contractor. In regard to the roads constructed in Sherman; county about a year ago, our division engineer arranged for the county board of Sheridan county to be shown over the roads in Custer county that had been constructed by this department with a blade grader at a cost of approximately $22.00 per mile; after which we turned over to Sherman county a grading outfit that in every way possible in making such an investigation.

The canals serve as thoroughfares, and fences in this country, which has 3,000 miles of nav igable rivers, 2,000 miles o frailroads, 2,000 miles of canals, and 12,000 square miles of area, about a fifth that of Illinois. The population is six mil lion. The chief industry is in the rais ing of Hoi stein cattle, the country being famous all over the world for its stock.

Under the direction of our division engineer, tne counvy run ptrueed the Rockville-Ravenna road and other sections of road that have been referred to in articles as only costing one-thenth of the amount of money that it cost to construct state roads'. These roads were constructed by shaping up the surface with a blade grader, and not transporting any p.ny tarth excepting from the side ditch to the center of the road, leav ing all the lower section at the foot of the hills to be flooded and cut to pieces each time we have heavy rains. In comparing the cost of heavy const ruction work on the roads in Sherman county, I find that on two contracts Ut in the county about the amc times one contract let by the county board west of Litchfield, the grading on the project cost $1,H04.00 per mile, while on the project con structed by the state highway depart ment the grading cost was 2,359.00 per mile. This is for the cost of grading, exclusive of drainage structures, as a greater part of the cost of the drain age structures on the state aid road was included in contract let to the county board and constructed in ac cordance with their wishes, I do not believe there is any complaint on the cost of that part of the work. 1 do not know what memler3 of the board were present when the resolu tion condemning the cost of the work done by this department was pas.d, however, when the contract was awarded there was a full meeting of the county board present, and they recommended that the contract be awarded and instructed their chair man to sign the contract with this department - The county also had the opportunity to take the work and handle it with county forces at the time. This pri vilege has been offered to every county In the state when state and federal aid roads are awarded. Several articles have appeared in papers in regard to statements made by Mr. Bowring of the Cherry county board at the annual convention of the county commissioners and supervision in Omaha last month. In answer to these articles I have to state that I met with the county board and the county clerk of Cherry county while the county commissioners' convention was in session and expained all their ques tions in such manner that I considered they would be satisfied after furnish ing an itemized statement of the cost f the project to thera.
