Jt bad long been the In tention of tbs original owners of the company here to build a finishing mill and to make out of tha property here ne of Ui eAuntry greatest steel ven ters. That this plan will be put Into affect la a part of tbs agreement in the sale, it Is believed by many. On good authority It Is axpectsd that In two years ths purchasing com pany will have spent more than ten millions of dollars In the construction of a finishing mill and In ths comple tion of other plans that ths Ashland company laid out One of these Items may be the Inauguration of a large line connecting tbe A. C. st L railway with Uis Detroit Tolodo A Ironton at ronton. What la more likely, some declare. Is the extension of a barge line to Cincinnati, there to connect with the Cincinnati, Hamilton A Day ton to Middletown, where ths rolling nun company's largest plant Is locat ed. The combination will make Ashland sne of the largest centers In the Amor- j Iran Rolling Mill system, which has 11.77 miles of penetration 11.11 miles of concrete; l.M miles of brtok; 1.1 miles of cinder surface, and 10 miles of widened roadway, Kentucky now has 106.05 miles of paved highway and 1.170.4 miles wf hard-surface roads.

Of the construction work pllsbed 111 miles was on ths primary system of Stats highways, much of It wltb Federal aid, and tha department In addition had made plans, specifica tions and estimates for hundreds of bridges, and taken over for malnten anca 421 miles, of which 167 miles were old State aid projects brought up to standard by the counties and It mUes of tbe new construction. The maintenance cost waa I2tl.t0t.il. The roads are under the patrol system, The fact that only 167 miles of over l evv mues or lormer utate aid work. ancts In excess of 150,000,000 and has left to county maintenance, was token over by tha State and'then only after resurfacing affords ths . only data on county maintenance. BetweemmNovem- ber, 1120, and November, 1121, the State spent 15,425,104.85 on roads, maintenance, overhead, engineering and reimbursement of counties for State aid advances. It Is estimated that ths 120 counties spent at least a like amount on their roads. The State in the twelve months turned out It miles of paved roads, 178 miles of hard surface roads, sur face treated 204.1S miles. . graveled 40.10 miles and constructed the grad Ing and drainage structure on 173.1 more. What the counties accomplish ed with their money Is not known. plants at Mltldlotown, Zanesvllle and Columbus, ' Ohio. It Is believed the conMoiidatlon will take place as soon as tlio necessary legal details hava been completed. It would bs safe to predict, therefore, that ths actual pass lug of the property Into the rolling mill ityntom will be well underway be fore the close of the present winter. It Is understood that ths deal will moan the construction of the long contumnlatod finishing mill at the Ash land plant as well as other develop ments, representing an expenditure In Aehland of several millions of dollars within the next few years. . The Aahland company's capital stock is $5,000,000 of common stock and no proforred.

The significant fact remains, how ever, that Kentucky is one of the lead ing oil producing States of the Mad continent field, and that its old poole, notably those of Lee, Estill and Allen counties, are not only holding up re markably well, but that the new pools discovered in Warren and Simpson counties In the Western field, . and Johnson, Magoffin and .
