A' special to the Courier-Journal aaya: Frankfort, Ky., March 18. Ken tucky's road programme for the year was saved today by the opinion of Judge Thoiataa, refusing an Injunction to County Attorney D. L. Thompson, Lawrence County, who sought to re strain the Fiscal Court from appro priating 125,000 to meet the Federal appropriation for construction of the Mayo Trail through . the county. - Lawrence ami the other counties In the Sandy Valley offered to contribute the State's share of the expense of construction. Lawrence had, voted a bond issue, the' call for the election designating- as one of the roads to be Improved with State aid the ; Mayo Trail. When the State aid law was repealed and Federal aid approved, the Fiscal Court voted to donate the )1 25,000 to be expended under State and Federal supervision. Several questions were raised by County Attorney .Thompson. Including which waa the right ot the Fiscal Court ta donate money for construction of'a State primary system highway through tho county. . Judge Thomas said that the money was votwd forthls particular highway. it Is to be expended on a county In ternal Improvement and the State will relieve the county ot the maintenance when the road ia constructed; so the county Is receiving a direct benefit.
