ing widely as to the powers which
they possess in this respect Th law

shall receive petitions for'laying out,
altering or continuing roads, and shall
determine the same with such award
for damages as may be just and accord
ing to law, and shall file the records of
all their actions with the county
auditors. Roads between towns may
be laid out, altered or discontinued by
committees from the two boards of
supervisors acting fffr their respective
boards, and these town line roads shall
be divided into districts, alloting to
each township as wholly belonging to
it sections which will require like ex
penditure to construct and keep in re
pair. Roads between town and city or
village shall be arranged for between
supervisors and town or village coun
cil. Appeals from board of super
visors or town boards, or a board
and common council may be brought
before the district court within thirty
days, by notifying chairman or chair
man and president, and by filing bond
for costs, if appeal fails. The board of
township supervisors have supervision
of roads and bridges within the town
ship. They shall regulate, superin
tend and care for construction and re

districts and report same to the town
clerk, in order that town meeting may
