Many of the arguments brought for ward in regard to this loan question jections to the present form of county government has always been that it did not carry with it the right to levy a tax. In this way an extravagant administration of a county is not felt by the taxpayers and does not react against such an administration. On the other hand, an economical set of officials who reduce the expenditures and relieve the taxpayers receive no credit for such a course.

Attorney Collins, who was extradited molds the argument. You mow. a shovelful of dirt taken out of the gut ter and thrown on the road can be -considered as "new" work; it Is "new" in the sense that It has never been done before. It was argued during the last ses sion that certain districts with a small -population and long distance would re quire assistance in their road work. And there was considerable talk of the Territory maintaining the belt roads around the Islands as Territorial. But nothing could be done with any certainty at that time, and In my opinion it is absolutely necessary that the Legislature should declare just wha roads axe to be Territorial roads, and whether or not the Territory is to "be responsible for their maintenance well as construction. I know of no authority by which the Executive could settle such a question. Yon argue that road extensions are loan fund to buy so perishable an artl cle as road machinery; In other words, this community has gotten to a point where they appropriate loan money to eke out what they ought to pay out of their own pockets. It Is very easy to borrow where you have .a credit, but when you borrow it has to be paid back, and our children will groan and complain when it becomes necessary (as it surely will) to increase the taxes in order to pay the interest and principal of our debt.
