O'BANNON, Hnrtford, Ky. Carload Every Seven Seconds. During the year 1915 the Now York Central railroad handled 4, 607,759 carloads of freight, or c carload every seven seconds. The! combined length of tho trains Into which this number of cars was mado up was 34,160 miles or 9,000 miles more than the circumference of tho earth. was a large crowd present, Includin members of tho Flscnl Court. Mr. Alnoy Tichenor was chosen chair man of tin meeting. Some lively speaking and comment wn3 In.ln)3 oil In, both or and against tho Court's nction. A committee on res olutions was appointed who retort ed ns follows, tho same being adopt ed: We, your committee on resolu tions, beg leave to report as follows. Wo have carefully examined the order of the Fiscnl Court entered at its February teini, IMC, wherein it' is attempted to work the roads of Ohio county as provided by Sections 435G-0, 435C-P, 43.-G-E, 435(3-11., Carroll's Statutes, 1915 edition. We nre of tho opinion that this is not a practical plan, that it would bu to the detriment of tho county to adopt tills system of road working; wc are, therefore, unalterably opposed to the proposed system. Be it there fore Resolved, That we, the citizen.? end taxpayers of Ohio county in convention assembled, do hereby 1 b Jcct to and protest against the adop tion of the plan as outlined In the order referred to above for the working of the roads in Ohio coup- ty, and would respectfully request the Fiscal Court of said countv to icsclnd said order and to work the roads under the system heretofore ndopted, wherein they were worked by teams and graders. Second. Be it therefore Resolved, That we believe the proposed plan is a backward step and not a progressive move; that if tliis plan should be adopted and put into operation under the law as out lined in the sections referred to, it would bankrupt the county, as tho law compels the overseers of tho va rious precincts to keep the bridges and roads free of obstruction and in good condition for travel, nnd If they fall to discharge their duty they may be punished by indictment in Circuit Court or warrant in tho QuarterlyCourt;that by the provision of this law all of the county over seers would have power and author ity to employ wagons, teams, plows, scrapers and other implements nec essary to work the roads, as requir ed by law. This being true, we be lieve that the road overseers would be compelled to put the roads in condition as described in the Statute and that in order to do so. It would bo necessary to employ wagons, teams, plows, scrapers and other im plements necessary to carry out this law. Mn doinc tills they wouhl cre ate an Indebtedness that the Fiscal Court would not be able to pay, and thereby bankrupt tho county. We believe that if the Fiscal Court would carefully examine the sec tions of the Statutes referred to In Its orders, that It would find upon proper Investigation that tho Statute gives tho road overseers too much power, and tho requirements of the statute are too great. For that rea son wo recommend that the order be rescinded and that tho plan of work ing tho roads with teams and gra ders bo adopted Instead of tho pres ent plan. Third. We believe and so recom mend, that If the present plan of working tho roads is adopted, ns outlined In the order above referred to, that It will only bo a short tlmo before the roads will bo In such n condition that it will bo Impossible to keep them up, unless the over seers adopt the plan as suggested in resolution 2; that tho court will fi nally adopt some other system of working the roads; that during this tlmo tho roads will get In such con dition that It will require largo sums of money to repair them or put them In as good condition as they are now; that the only way the roads can be maintained or kept In good condition for travel Is by the uso of teams and graders, and when this plan is not used, the roads will necessarily bo damaged and largo sums of money heretofore expended on them, lost. In Justice to the Fis cal Court and tho taxpayers of tho and take In exchntige other good stock or real estate. And when you want a nice, gentle, fresh Jersey cow, let me know.

The War College and the General Staff of the Army have made plans for the use of the organized militin in the Mexican campaign If It is found Li ter that tile regular troops are rwi strong enough to carry out tho plans of the President.
