LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Dear Sir: I bolievo tlmt ilia tax pnyors aro greatly interested in the good roads movement and Binde tile nmeiulmonts were carried at the late election, it behooves all interested to try and work for the best interests of all and have these roads constructed along the lilies that will benefit the major portion of our tax payers. There has boon reconlly a lot of propaganda issued concern no: the proposed menndorings of roads from Virgin in into Kotitucky and there seems to lie a very wide dilToronco of opin? ion iis to which route should be selected. lipon going into the qllostion very fully, it has developed to my mind, that the most logical and economic way would be to leave Ihe proposed state high? way from Pig Si one Gap to Coebtirn, Virginia, at Kent Junction, Virginia .and follow Ihe present highway, which was recently opened lor Ira flic und which has been construct? ed on lines approved by the Si.iio ami County Highway Commission. This highway has been admirably located ami ail of iho bridges are of concrete and ol a very permanent char acti r, much butter than most of tho Btrticturoa recently built. Krom Kent Junction to the Kentucky line at PardeO, Vir? ginia, is approximately 10 miles and ihe Hoard of Supervisors of Wise county have already appropriated $2:1,000 to extend the present highway toward Ihe state line at Low (lap in the Big Black .Mountain, this being the lowest gap in this range of mountains ami therefore is well adapted for the route of the proposed road. From this point the highway would descend to the waters of the Boor Kork of tho Cumberland via Smith's Creek on a very desirable grade, and the citizens' of Lotcher county havo from tirao to timo signified thoir williugness to cooporntu in tlio construction of tliiB rood. This road would pass through tho best section of southeastern Kentucky and at Bolia, n point approximately 5 milos from l'nrdoo, tho connec? tion would be made with tho old state rood crossing Pine Mountain to Whitesburg, the county seat of Letohor county, approximately 12 miles distant from rSolia. This part of tho highway is quite extensively travelled and as the grading haB mostly been done, it would not require n great expenditure to put it in good condition for modern trufllc. At Whites burg, which is on the Kentucky River, connectinn would be mode with the stato highway leading from Jenkins to Haz? ard and on out toward the blnegrass country. 1 rusting that I have made thyself entirely clear in this matter, and inviting any in? quiries. Very truly yours, t). Kl 1.1..Ml Kit. Black wood, Va,, Nov. ?_?:>, 1020.
