In the Stale or Missouri there nre
three separate and distinct road
funds, known ns follows:
ltoad fund stamp net.
(lood road fund.
flenernl state road fund.
The "road fund stamp net" Is de
lived from the snlo or stamps by the
mate auditor and Is apportioned to
tlio counties as tlio school money is
r.ow apportioned. This apportion
ment Is based on the school euumcro
lou, and Is paid to the county trea
surers, on a requisition authorized
y the county court and certified by
tho county clerk.
The ' good rond fund" Is derived
rom the automobile license law. Out
of this fund Is paid the expense for
Iragglng roads connecting county
Tho 17th (ienernl Assembly np
iroprlated $21'., 000.00 for mi 3 and
1011, nml under tho law counties
"mi draw $112,300.00 In 1913, and
ho same amount In 1911; provided
tlio license collected from nutotno
ilku amount to that much.
The law provides that tho county
highway board shall let contracts
for dragging roads before any thing
Is paid ny tne Mate. Tho county
highway board of Hal Inn county, Is
made up of the following members:
.Mine K. King, S. 1'. Houston and
frank Latimer, county highway en
gineer. Tho law also provider Hint the
Btntc pay $13 per annum for each
mile dragged. '
The fund known as tho "general
state road fund," Is money transfer
red from tho "good road fund.' No
money can he transferred to this
fund until $112,300.00 lias been ta
ken from that fund for road drag
Ring purposes. However it is esti
mated that there will bo about
$100,000.00 to apportion from the
general statu road fund this year. The
apportionment of this money Is based
(li the assessed valuation and the
apportionment Is made on July 1st.
It was estimated by tho state audi
tor, that the amount In the various
funds this years will be us fol
