Speaking of the plans for the Bum- n
mer Col. Richardson said that the ap- 8'
propriatlon of $125,000 would have to
be used exclusively for repairs and e
maintenance of the present roads a
hence there could not be any new work
undertaken. "The tax fund will be
reduced and the loss of the poll tax
will make the general road fund less
than that of any previous year," he
said, "but I am hopeful of getting a
large appropriation for the next year.
The construction of the railroad will
call for the building of more and bet- Xl
ter wagon roads to provide tonnage. 8(
I am glad that Skagway will get a
road to the summit. It means much
to the town and will also bring better 0
business to the railroad company. ^
