VOLUME VII NUMBER 42 OROFINO, CLEARWATER COUNTY, IDAHO FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, JOINT MEETING HELD TO BOOST STATE HIGHWAY. A joint meeting composed of the North Fork. Orotino and Clearwater Highway Commissioners, the county Commissioners, and several farmers and business men, met at the Com mercial Club rooms Monday after noon. The meeting was called to order by Samson Snyder. John R. Becker of Lewiston ex plained the four agencies thru which funds are received for high ways—Fedeial government, state, county, and other outside organiza tions. It was explained that when the county and t'he state put up one dollar for these trunk highways, the Federal government meets it with a dollar. The state highway com mission, thru the state engineer, su pervises the survey, the letting of contracts, , id the handling of all moneys. he state highway com mission ti n takes over the road and main 1 .ns it. not. hand!, commission no money can be ob tained from either the state or the federal government. Nor will the road be accepted as a state highway and maintained. thus showing plainly that the county or highways in a county must act thru the state highway lif any outside help is to he expected. If the people in the local highways are willing to pay all the cost and later maintain the road, then they may ignore the state highway commission. There was considerable discussion but the meeting seemed to drag for in fact the meeting was called to And out If the highway districts in our county, bordering on the pro posed Lewis and Clark highway had signed the resolution asked for by the state engineer, was "That the State Highway Com mission was ready at once to make survey if the various highway dis trllcts would stand the expense and the state refund one-third late 1 as funds were avaiilable. The North Fork and Clearwater highways had already signed the resolution, but the Orofi.no commissioners, Doosou. Jim Blake and Pat Griffln, seemed to want to do their own surveying for some reason, which they didn't explain. Their apparent desir> ap peared to be an itching to hand!'' the funds. Jim Blake talked to tri-, «uni. and lost all Interest ln tu; meeting and left when it parent to Jimmy that there was no | ■chance for him to handle the funds, j It seems funny, when some one ' offers to pay at least 60 per cent of the cost of a road and then 1 maintain it when built, that the Or nflno Highway want to do alone. After about two hours of talk th, Chairman of the Oroflnn Highway board said that if all the meeting was called for and was waiting for was to see if the Orofino Highway board was going to sign the resolu tions asked for by the state, that his board was ready to sign. No mention of bonds was brought up except the statement by the Oro flno and North Fork districts that If the money is thru the state highway This resolution now was up uiiimiiiiiiiiiiiimmimimiimiiiiimiiitiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiHiiiii uiiimiiiiiiiiiiiimmimimiimiiiiimiiitiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiHiiiii Capital and Surplus During the past year we have added * $10,000 to our Capital and $2,000 to our Surplus, a total of »12,000 added by the stockholders to secur ity and working funds of the bank.

It was shown very positively that so far as the Orotino highway dis trict is concerned bonds could not be carried in the highway district unless the money is to be handled by the state highway commission. And this is the proper way to have the funds spent for the state will then maintain the road after com pletion, besides paying one-third of the cost of construction, no matter whether trunk or lateral.
