Input between now and the itit pi unary to discuss every phase of this pleat pioblcin. I have been ipformed that the old railroad bonds Live tarn paid. We fan now put tbii millage of our taxes (four Bills) that ne hive been paying on in two hundred thousand dollais rsilroad del t into at one hundred md fifty thousand public road bond or millage or present taxes need not be changed at all. Certainly if our forefathers could sea the point and I do oot question the wisdom of JjsI transaction at that time for a railroad through this county must tare increased the vlaue of properly lure than double that amount, oer ainlr with twice the population ot tbeir time and twice U.e real value uf property we can now bond for leu amount ana build for ourselves public highways inasmuch as tbey till be our roads. This railroad bond was all paid to individuals out side of ibe county, the money has left us, the property is owued by others sow, here is the comparison: Tbe dirt roads will be curs, the oney will remain with us. Not more than two thousand dollars needevur leave the county. We have the labor and the material, I n it will be with us during "the t thirty vears, cheap snoney at '"or six percent. It will circulate sDong us our money and our roads. D. II. Yatm. Show? Why yea-at Taylor'a. IMnetta News.
