At a recent meeting of the Uiard of supervisors of Pinal county a petition til. rnerously signed was presented ak intf establishment of a county road from a point on the railway near Casa (ramie, along the north line of the Arizola townsite, I hence In a north easterly dinrtiou. on a nearly st raight line to Florence. The board has given tln notice required by law that the mattiT will be considered at a special meeting on tlie twentieth of May. A great deal of the necessary work of opening the promised road has al ready Ih-cii done, at no cost to Ibe county whatever, and they will com plete t lieeiit he line. All asked is t hat the supervisors adopt the same as a public highway in order that it may lie kept in repair w ith public money, which is contributed in part from the road tax levied upon t he property of the petitioners, (who will use the pro posed road more than all others in the county), and will not absorb the full amount of their contribution to the road fund. The wants and needs of Arizola in this matter are worthy of considera tion by the county authorities. At this place is an enterprise that has already great ly increased the assessed valuation of Pinal county, added tot ho imputation, and is projected to con tinue doing Ik it li in an eer increasing ratio. Those who have settled and invested here, and those they an- in ducing to do likewise, are entitled to a direct road to the county seat, have asked for such a road, after const met ing the way. and their retpiest should be granted. It w ill harm no one. and greatly convenience the new colony. Last inonth Colonel 1). S.
