STATE HIGHWAY IS
ROUTE FOR CONTINUATION OF
NORTH AND SOUTH ROAD
W1L ALSO TOUCH FERDINAND
Commission Determines Which Way
Highway Shall Go When it
Continuation of the North and South
highway from Orangeville to Lewiston
will pass through Cottonwood and Fer
dinand, to Ho, and then to Lewiston.
This is the decision of the state high
way commission, announced from Boise, j
late last week.
The decision of the highway commis
sion settles a long contest between Cot
tonwood and Nezperce, each of which
towns was determined that they should j
b * included on fhe route of the proposed
road. It is deemed probable that a spur
will be built from Ho to Nezperce.
Preliminary surveys have been made,
T1 >a Cottonwood highway district will
take care of construction work f'r four
miles on either side of the town.

^ construction at Cottonwool was
begun at a time when the commission
wSs considering the two routes,
work in the district has been performed
in accordance with the plans and speci
fications of the state highway commis
sion so that the state commission can
take over the work in the district and
cooperate in its completion without the
necessity of anv ehnnyes. It is estimat
éd about $23,060 has already been ex
pended within the district and a fund of
$28,000 remains with which to complete
the work. The assistance to be secured
from the state will be sufficient to com
plete the construction through the Cot
tonwood district, it is said.
