Slvwnk THINKS EVERYBODY SHOULD VOTE FOR GOOD ROADS CON STITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. The following article written espec ially for the lianner-News by a local man who has long been a thorough ami consistent advocate of good roads will be of value to some of our read ers who would like more information n the amendment which is to be voted upon at the coming election: Thinking perhaps some of the vot ers do not thoroughly understand the reasons for the present change in the constitution authorizing the legisla ture to issue up to $50,000,000 in hirfrwav bonds, a few facts may help ito enlighten some of you. In the first place, it is not tne in tention of the legislature to issue the entire $50,000,000 in bonds at any one time. The amendment simply gives them the authority to issue up to $50,000,000, and the plan is that this shall be issued in small amounts as the highway department need them to work to tho most economical and efficient advantage. Probably at no time would the issue exceed in any one year $5,000,000, and these pay ments will undoubtedly be arranged serially so that the bonds will all be paid up and taken care of at the ena of the 25-year period, payments being made yearly after the first five years. There has been some question as to the advisability of issuing bonds in preference to making a direct tax each year covering the needs of the department, but unfortunately one legislature cannot make an appropria tion covering the period beyond the two years. that they are in office, and this does r.ot give the highway department sufficient assurance that the next legislature will do the same in the way of appropriations, o they can plan or lay out a comprehensive prngram covering a period of 10 years which is what they desire to do. It is the intention of the highway department of the state to fill in all of the missing gaps in the present trunk line highway system with the most serviceable type of road de manded, which will be governed of course by the amount of traffic on the particular section that is being made Some of the trunk line systems re quires hard surfacing or pavement while in other sections the traffic ts sufficiently light to enable them to use jrravel to advantage. The Aldrich bill which has recently been passed puts the road building expense in the different counties on an entirely different basis. As it stands new .the state bears a percent age of the actual cost, whereas in the Tast it has simply allowed a stipu lated amount per mile regardless oi the cost of the road. This percentage varies according to the wealth and population of the dif ferent counties, the poorer counties getting more help than the richer ones. In Inia county the state pays one-half the cost. This is a very material increase ove the ol rpwarvl which we used to get on trunk line hiehways of 71.700 per mil, and in addition reouirrs that a patrol sys tem be maintained at all times cn the trunk line roads to insure the proner maintenance of the road bed. This should have a decidedly beneficial ef fect on the rounds as it will not permit them to deteriorate ?nd become worn out ns is the case oftentimes new on an improved road which in many cas- ei lacks the necessary attention at the time it fonM be given. Trie United States .government in offering to help in their road building program, requires that the indidivual state raise an equal amount of mo ney for highwav purposes to the amount offenyl bv the federal gov ernment, and should some future leg islature refuse the necessary appro priation and we had no right, t bond we would loe this federal id r- cpnse we could not mrifch dollar fo dollnr the funds they offered. This together with the fact that it is impossible for the highway depart ment to arrange aco mprehensive pro gram covering a period of vears i the strongest argument in favor of tihe bond issue, and arranging these bonds as they Intend to do. serially, keeps the expense to a very small amount. Figures compiled by the insurance department at Larsring show that the state can issue $50,000,000 at the rate of $5,000,000 per year and pay off the entire amount at the end of 25 vears at a tax cost of f8c on each $1,000 of assessed valuation. This is uing the present state valuation which naturally before the expiration of 25 years will very materially in crease and as a consequence reduce this tax rate, so that a man today who is assessed $2,000 would have to pay $1.3G toward this highway im provement. This constitutional amendment will give the state funds and place them in a position to take advantage of all county and federal aid to the extent that instead of being able to improve roads to the extent of $50,000,000. the amount received will total approxi mately $100,000,000, and not add any thing to the state expense beyond the original amount, so that by support ing this bond issue you are getting practically $2.00 for $1.00 and it will all go into permanent highway im provement and at the end of . ten years Michigan will stand as one of tho first states in improved high ways. Every voter should support this constitutional amendment. Ntw District Ltadars. Grand lUplds. Western Michigan thfyear will be imder new leadership la the War Savings campaign. Car roll F.
