The board thereupon proceeded to the
consideration of sundry claims against the
county, as hereinafter set lorth, pending
which the board adjourned until 8 a. m
TUESDAY MORNING, 9 O CLOCK, JONE OTH,
The board met pursuant to adjournment
All members present.
The report of the viewers heretofore ap
pointed by this board, to view the route for
the proposed new road through the town of
Elco, etc., is before the board for its con
sideration, and comes also Mrs. Hartline
and objects to said new road running
through her land, claiming it will be a
great damage to her, by almost ruining her
farm. She also presents to the board a re
monstrance signed by J. R. F. Standard
and 39 other citizens of the immediate
neighborhood against said new road run
ning through said land, and it also appear
ing to the board that one ot 6aid viewers
did not sign the viewer's report, but did
sign said remonstrance. And the board
being now fully advised of, and concerning
the same, it was on motion, ordered that so
much of said report that relates to said
and be not concurred in.
The balance of said report, viz: Com
mencing said road at the intersection of
the Cairo and Jonesboro road
and Mary Street in said town
of Elco, and running thence a distance
of about C7U rods on the land of
Nancy J. Whitaker, until it strikes the Ul-
lin and Cape Girardeau road near the resi
dence of Miles Cauble, was, on motion,
approved, and the road supervisor is hereby
instructed to open tho same.
The report of viewers appointed at the
last session ot this board to view the ground
for the proposed re-location of what is
known as the Ullin road in section 17,
township 14, range 3 west, is before tho
board for its consideration, but on motion,
said report was not concurred in, for the
reason, as the board is reliably informed,
said change will incur a greater expense
than tho funds of the county will justify.
The report of viewers appointed to report
upon the expediency of changing a portion
of the East Cape Girardeau and Ullin road
was presented, and the board being in
formed that said change will be made by
the owner of said land, and at no expense
to the county, snd at the same time will be
for the public good, was on motion, ap
proved. A petition was presented to the board
signed by G. W. Freeze and fifty other citi
zens of Alexander county, praying for the
re-location of a portion of the Ullin and
Cape Girardeau road, as follows: Com
mencing near the southeast corner of north
west quarter of the northeast quarter of
section 20, township 14, range 1 west,
etc., running we6t about 30 rods, thence in
a northwesterly direction to 4he west line
of the northwest quarter of the northeast
quarter of said section CO, thence along the
north line of said section, until it again in
tersects the said Ullin and Cape Girardeau
road,' through land owned by G. W. Freeze.
And tho board, after inquiry, being satis
fied that all the requirements of law hud
been complied with, and that the public
good and convenience require said re-location,
it was ordered that the court issue a
warrant to the following named persons to
view Baid proposed route, and make report
thereof at the next Bcssion of this court,
viz: Geo. R. Herrick, Moses Lentz and
Whereas, it having come to the knowl
edge of this board that John Bishop, road
supervisor ot district No. 7, has failed to
perform his duties as such supervisor, he is
by order of this board removed from said
position and John M. Dorton is hereby
appointed to take his place.
It also having been represented to the
board that Geo. W. Lee, heretofore ap
pointed mad supervisor of district No. 2,
has removed from said district, II. B. Wil
lis was, on motion, appointed to fill said
And it also being represented to tho
board, that Eli Douglass, who, at the lht
December session was appointed supervisor
of rood district No. 10, refuses to accept
the same, whereupon on motion, Horace L.
Caldwell was appointed in his stead, and
the clerk is hereby instructed to notify him
The petition of James II. Mulcahy, duly
signed according to luw.toeetlicr with bond
in the sum of $3,000, praying that a license
issue to him, to keep a grocery at Commer
cial Point, in the Gooso Island precinct,
was presented to the board; on motion, ap
proved, and tho clork ordered to issue to
said Jas. II. Mulcahy tho proper license,
upon his paying into tho county treasury
tho requisite amount. .
Tho petition of William Wilbourn, to
keep a grocery at Olive Branch, in the
Unity precinct, was presented to the board
aud rejected, tor tho reason, in the opinion
of the board, thero are at present as many
groceries in said precinct as the public good
The bill of II. T. Gcrould, amounting to
$1, tor connection to meter was rejected, for
the reason that meter was taken out with
out any good reason, and without giving
the board notice thereof when in session.
Tho following claims against tho county
were allowed, but inasmuch as the county
has drawn warrants against and in antici
pation of the taxes already levied, to as
large an amount as the board thinks safe to
draw at present, it is, therefore, ordered
that tho clerk is hereby directed not to
draw any warrants for the payment of said
claims until tho further order of this board.
Excepting those drawn against the special
road and road and bridge accounts, there
being in the funds out of which said bills
arc payable unexpended balances.

equitable claim exists.
Asa GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
