X O . 4 » MERIDIAN PEOPLE SEEM TO FAVOR SMALL BOND ISSUE Many have approved the suggestion for a bond Issue to improve the mile of Meridian state highway, made in the Times last week, but some have protested the making of the bond 1 b sue more than Is absolutely necessary to put crushed rock on the mile of highway. This could be done for from $7,000 to $8,000. Those who sug gested $12,090, Included the building with the same material of roads along several blocks In town that are arter ies for the main highway, thought that the mud might be pul led from the streets onto the new road and damage the new construct ion while if all were fixed there would be no reason for not having a perm anent road. One thing was noticed by the Times man in talking with Meridian people that no one wap found to oppose a bond issue at this time, but the sentiment is to make it as low as possible, and to be sure that the money will be well spent. It Is cited, that several years ago the town put in about three thousand dol lars for graveling Idaho street, and that there were imperfections both in the construction and in the quality of the gravel used. As to the work necessary to be done outside of the mile of state highway the idea seems to l>e that this can be handled in the shape of a special road levy. ley ing It is be his as ■F. by at GOOD COMMERCIAL STAND ING OF OUR BANKS The Times has recently published the statement of the condition of four banks in this vicinity, The First Nat ional and Meridian State, in Merid ian, the Bank of Eagle, and the Far mers Bank of Star. These statements prove that the banks are all in splen did financial condition, and the dark forebodings of a few pessimists, made a few months ago are disprov ed. They show a good surplus on hand, the depositors have increased, and considering the fact that this is the time of year the banks are asked for credit, the showing is better than one would naturally expect. A good deal of this is due to the careful and conservative way in which the banks are managed. All the paper that the banks handle nowadays can be rated as gilt edge and when it is considered that a great many are being helped, with loans, it would indicate that the people of this section have a good commercial standing. of he of is SUGGESTION TO PARK POR TION OF STATE HIGHWAY A Meridian man suggests that the state highway in the north part of town be parked along ts length, extending for the half mile north of of the street near the rural high school. The street Is very wide, and would permit a parkway, would thus be divided, and the new rock gravel highway would be better protected from over-crowding, which means deep ruts and a bad road.
