Union City cannot afford etreet paving at $60,000 a mile, or a matter of half a million dollars for paving the streets of Union City. We can , manage a system, however, which will provide for standard pav ing in the strictly business sectors and railroad track crossings, and less expensive construction on the resi dence streets. We have always stood for that plan. But the Board took a different view and provided for" an xtension of standard paving to some of the preferred resident streets. Now, if this residence section is done on the abutting property plan as planned we have no objection to make. But if some few of the resi dent streets are to be paved with standard paving and others with heap paving then the objection made y some of those present Tuesday .night to the abutment plan is not well considered. To levy a general property tax for this sort' of an ar rangement would be altogether un reasonable and unjust. A general tax to improve one man's property with paving at five dollars a foot and another one's at 50 cents a foot, would be class legislation of the rank est character and illegal, no doubt, if tested by law. Therefore the only fair way to make improvements on the resident streets under general taxation is to make them all of the same cost. The people certainly would not stand for anything else. Good Roads Corporation of Kansas City, to Build Streets. On Tuesday night the Board of Mayor and Aldermen of Union City let a street contract to the Good Roads Corporation of Kansas City at an average price of $2200 a mile for an unlimited amount of street' work in Union City. The specifications are as follows: The improvements are known as the penetration system, comprising the scarifying of streets to a grade level with additional surface mate rial, etc., as are needed. Then three coats of oil are laid, consisting of a sixty per cent asphaltic content. Then comes the rolling process which is one of the scientific measures. Then again an application of liquid as phalt 90 per cent test, with a sand gravel binder. The contract is made with a five- year bond for maintenance. This contract is for street work outside of the district where the as phalt-concrete work is proposed. The estimated cost is 13 cents per square yard. Gen. Hannah to Speak Here. Gen. Harvey Hannah, candidate for the Democratic nomination for Governor, will speak Monday, June 26, at the Courthouse in Union City at 2 p.m. in the interest of his can didacy. - Everybody should come and hear this forceful speaker discuss the vital issues of the day. EN-AR-CO BOY For State Senator. Senator Ben F. LeDuke, of Lake County, announces this week as a candidate for re-election as State A Musical Fellow Our reporter has found the most musical fellow in town. He is a boy, six foot tall, has wonderful eyes, a broad smile and is considered an au thority on music. When interviewed he was at the Senator from the Twenty-eighth Sen-1 Motor Sales & Service Co. place of atorial District, composed of the j business. Our reported asked this re-counti-es of Weakley, Obion and Lake, ' markable boy to sing a song. The boy subject to the action of the Demo- replied "One doesn't need to be a cratic party. j singer to keep the even tenor on his There is no better known citizen . way." So our reporter then asked of Lake County than Mr. LeDuke. j "What is the sweeteset music in the He is a citizen of the highest type; world?" Everyone should know and a Democrat who has never known j that," replied the boy, "why a ba- how to forsake his party. Se served the people in the General Assembly with the very highest order of ability and integrity. His record shows that he stood for the interests of his peo ple against the inroads of treasury Taiders. He is a progressive and at the same time a man who under stands the importance of financial economy. He is withal a man ex ceptionally fitted by nature and ex perience for the work of legislation. Mr. LeDuke is seeking a nomina tion for the second term and he be lieves his services entitle him to the consideration of his fellow citizens and voters of the district. The Com mercial takes genuine pleasure in presenting the name of Mr. LeDuke for State Senator. ENDORSES CRAIG FOR CONGRESS. The writer was in Brownsville Sat urday visiting his brother, Paul Sims, an employee of the Brownsville States-Graphic, and had the opportu nity of hearing Hon. W. W. Craig's opening address in nis campaign for Congress. Mr. Craig's speech;i'was printed in Sunday's Commercial Ap peal and is a masterly effort in the presentation of his claims. The News is proud of the record of Mr. Craig on Capitol Hill where he fought for the "best interests of the citizens of this State. He has climbed from the bot tom round of the ladder and now comes "before the people hoping to realize the ambition of a life time, a seat in the Congress of the United States. Mr. Craig Is a native of this town; this county the place of his youthful endeavors and his friends here are anxious to see him attain this high position. The opposition to Mr. Craig does not discount his abil ity; it relies principally upon the plea of Mr. Garrett's position as a party leader. This Issue was dis cussed by Mr. Craig in his opening address, and should be read and con sidered by all impartial Democrats The "News supports Mr. Craig upon the grounds that he is able to fill "with credit the high office to which he aspires and also for some of the many exalted principles in his plat 'form and as a home grown product, a man w'ho has achieved remarkable success. Should the Democrats of the Ninth Congressional District see fit to return our representative, he will have our loyal support as the party nominee, but in this campaign, we feel that the neighbors and friends of Mr. Craig in Crockett County are going to show their inter est in their fellow-citizen by rallying to his support. Tri-Connty News, adv. j by's first chuckle is the sweetest mu sic in the world." "Give me a few definitions of Jazz," pleaded our re porter' and here is what the boy handed out: "Jazz delirium tremens made audible." "Jazz puts the 'harm' in harmony." "Jazz knocks the 'L' out of mel ody." "In jazz saxophones are played so you won't hear the rest of the mu sic." "After jazz people may take up music as a fad." "Often one gets harmony by play ing second fiddle," was a terse mu sical epigram that the boy quoted. Knowing that no one likes too much chin music, our reporter left after first ascertaining that this monster boy is here to stay and his job is to keep everyone in good humor and to keep motors in tune also. Motor Sales & Service Co. have hired the boy to help them sell En-ar-co Motor Oil an oil that is re fined with such scientific accuracy and painstaking care that it is con sidered everywhere the best motor oil obtainable. It will make your motor run smoother, keep it remarkably free from engine trouble, repair costs and similar annoyances. Tractor For Sale.
