Initial Movement Afoot for Road
to Reelfoot Lake.
A very large and representative crowd
of citizens met at the courthouse, last
Monday to devise way and means for a
good roads campaign in Obion County.
Tho specific purpose of the meeting was
to develop plans for the building of a
hard road to Reelfoot Lake. W. G.
Reynolds was elected permanent chair
man of the association. W. L. White
was elected seore'ary.
Chairman Reynolds stated that , the
object of the meeting was to arrange
for tho building of a good road from
Union City to some point on tho lake.
Ti. R, Marshall made a talk in favor
of the building of the road by Fre
mont. Mr. Glover talked in favor of
going by Rock Springs. .
W, L. White suggested to get the
sense of the people living Jn the dis-;
tricts in the radius of the proposed
route to be established in order that the
best and most desirable" route be de
R. L. Lockert thought that a com
mittee should be selected and this com
mittee first get subscriptions in the way
of money, work, right of way, material
and then fix upon the best route as a
more practical plan. Of course this
plan will naturally involve the taking
of interest in the road according to lo
cation. That is, if a subscriber gets
his choice he gives more than if some
other route should be adopted.
Mr. Selmo Harris thought tnt the
whole county would be intereilVd in
this matter, that it is a big undertaking
and that the committee should be made
up with members from all the districts
in tho county.;
Mr. Lockert made a motion to ap
point a committee, with two or three
members from each civil district, and
ibis was amended by having the chair
appoint a committee of fivo who are to
Select the committee on ways and
means, as follows: R. L, Lockert, E. A.
Glover, R. B. Marshall, Dan Word, J.
A. Cloar. - .
These gentlemen arc to send in two
or three names from each civil district
who are to compose the committee on
plans and ways and means for a road
from Union City to Reellobt Lake..
Many substantial citizens from Vari
ous parts of tho County were present
and interested. . . -
- F. J. Smilh, R. A. Fierce, Mayor
Coble and quite a number of people in

There is no doubt that it is a popular
movement, one which will extend to
