While tb dealraoillty of good roada m apparent (every period of wet weather restricting the movement of produce to market), Uie question nat urally arises: Why should tbe gove- ernment and tbe state contribute di rectly to the farmer's welfare?

The principal difference between the Quay bill and the ' bill in troduced by Dolognto McGulre, so far as thoso bills iertalli to pklaliomn, aro Uio provisions rel ative to the sale of tho school lauds. The Quay bill provides that till school lands shall be sold at a figure not Utm than $lo per acre: tho McGulro bill profiles for the sale of the school lands at public auction.
