legal means for the better im
provement of public roads.
T. T. Rodes: -Have always
been and expect to be in lavor
of good roads.
John F. Smock: I have al
ways been an advocate of good
roads and my nomination or
election to the office to which I
aspire, will not in the least
change my sentiments on this
question, except perhaps to in
spire me to greater action.
O. T. Guthrie: Am heartily
in favor of good roads and su;:
gest township organisation and
let the roads to contractors.
Thos. F. Hard: I assure yon
that should I be elected to the
