A resolution we offered requesting
the members of the pretest legislature
from this county to have paased a
bill au&oriztng a bocd issue of nsl ex
ceeding $53,000 to meet the present io
debtodness of the eewUy. The resolu
tion evoked eociidere&e discussion, but
waa defeated by a very decisive vote.
A petition for an appropriation of
$2,000 for a bridge over Wolf river on
LeG range and Holly Springs road in the
thirteenth district earn in for its ebare
of discussion. It was brought out dur
fog the discussions that the amount
asked for amounted to about $3 per
foot while the average price was a
round $1.60. The difference in the
price was said to be because of the
pile-diving necessary in building this
bridge, A m otion carried authorizing
a committee to buy material and build
the bridge with the labor of workhouse
bands, a competent superintendent be
ing employed to look after the work.
The work of Wednesday wss mostly
on the regular docket. The most of
the day was taken op with routine
matters, issuing warrants for bills
already made and other such matters.
The item in regard to ue appropri
ation of $500 toward the demonstration
agent's salary came op Wednesday
morning and was passed with only a
few votes against It, the court stand
ing almost a unit for the appropriation.
