Mr. John Rogers, of Olympia, Wash, sends us a copy of resolutions adopted by the Four Mound Grange These resolutions attack some of the unnec essary legislature supposed to be in the interest of public roads and pub lic schools, and are as follows: "Whereas, Tho taxes collected for the maintenance and impro\emont of the public roads should be expended on the roads in tho locality where the taxes are raised and Whereas, People of tho locality who pay taxes for the improvement of tho public highways should have a voice in the expenditure of the money thus raised and a voice in choosing a road supervisor lor their respective dis tricts. Therefore, ho it resolved, That tho Legislative committee of tho State Grange be instructed to use all honor able means to induce the legislature of the State of Washintgon to repeal the present road laws out of harmony with this resolution and to enact a law dividing the county into local road districts and giving the qualified electors of said local districts the right of choosing a road supervisor for their several respective districts whose duty it shall bo to see that the road taxes shall be judiciously ex pended for tho purpose for which they are levied and collected.
