Pendleton, Oregon, May 28, 1917 1 have talked with nearly all of our local citizens who are fighting the road bond bill and i find that they all make wry fucea and declare that the bill is wicked and every one as sijens a different reapon for opposing it. I have talked to some of these citizens more than once, and ever one assigns a different reason every time he explains his opposition. Near ly every objector admits that the ob jection he assigned was not well ta ken, rtome of them keep on object ing, apparently without making an effort to learn the truth. is a Jut plan. The proposed bund proposition is the most just of alt the plans that have been offered for the building of roads. It provides J that the bond should be retired within twenty years, commencing six years after 11 issues, In other word, til roads ate paid for during the time they are bein used and by the people thut are using them; this bond measure is not like some bonding propositions which In volve the borrowing of money and it repayment In a lump sum at sometime in the dlstHnt future. Such a scheme is unjust because It places the burden of paving for road construction upon the next generation after this genera tion ha-s enjoyed and worn out the roads. The suggested plan to build roads by direct tax is equally If not more, unjust. A direct lux would have to be uniform, and would require contri bution by every property owner with out regard whether that property owner owns an automobile or horse or not.. What la yet worse, it re quires that this generation build and pay for roads to be used by the next I earnestly hope that the public sense of justice and f:tir play will assert it self and that we will adopt the bond measure so that roads can be built so far aa possible by the people who use them and be paid for by the people who use them during the time they are In use.
