churches in our country con tribute to Christianize the heath en as much as all the States in the Union expend for public school education It is unnecessary to discuss the road question from the standpoint of value Everybody believes in good roads but the question is how to get them At the last session of the Ken l trickYLegislature two bills were introduced to amend our State Constitution in the interest of good roads These two bills were consolidated into one and passed almost unanimously both houses and the question of amending the Constitution in the interest of good roads is to be voted on at tie November election this year r J3 there are two separate pro visions incorporated in the amendment I will discuss them pseparately One of them amends n where a county i is allowed to vote a bonded in debtedness of 2 per cent of its sassessed valuation This amend n1 ntqfr the Constitution if effectiverin counties where it is submitted tothe vMers and a majority of J them vote for

Quriornycounty in the jIiXj y f r r b Bluegrass section for the reason that you have a system of turnpikes and a bonded indebtedness is entirely unnecessary But the amendment was submitted by the Legislature for the benefit of those counties who have few or no turnpikes and where the val uation of property is so small that the 2 per cent now permitted by the Constitution is entire ly inadequate for the demands of these countiesIASSESSMENT INADEQUAT- have taken the trouble to go over the report of the State Board of Equalization this year to show you that what I have just stated is absolutely true From this re port I find that there are twenty eight counties in the State whose total valuation averages between 1500000 and 2000000 These counties are Clinton Gallatin Lee Martin Rowan Cumber land Greene Leslie Metcalfe Russell Edmonson Hancock Letcher Owsley Pike Elliott Jackson Magoffin Powell Trim ble Estill Knott Lyon Rock castle Wolf Two per cent bonded indebtedness in these counties would Only yield 40 000 which would be inadequate build anything like the num IIto of miles of turnpike roads they would need while the 5 percent proposition as provided in the amendment would probably give them what they would need peaI IThere are twentynine other where the assessment is lover 2000000 and under3J 000000 and in these county the maximum debt under the Constitution now would be only 60 000 which is totally insufficient theyJample nearly every case These counties are Adair Cald well Grayson Lawrence Meade Allen Carter Greenup Living ston Monroe Ballard Casey Johnson Lewis Muhlenburg Breathett Crittenden Larue Marshall Taylor Butler Floyd Laurel Menefee Trimble MANY COUNTIES IN NEED There are in all fiftyseven counties or nearly onehalf of the State which need this anyIa the purpose of constructing a system of turnpike roads These counties are nearly all destitute of good roads There are twenty or thirty more counties of larger valuation which would also be benefited by this amendment if passed It cannot be expected that many of the towns will immedi ately avail themselves of the privileges granted under the amendment but in the course of time a great many of them would and the valuation of their prop erty would at once increase more than the bonded indebtedness for the cost of turnpike roads- I cannot see why any patriotic citizen in any of the Bluegrass counties where the county valuation runs from 8000000 to 20 000000 and that have good turn pike roads would vote against an amendment which would give rto the poor counties of the State which have no turnpikes an opportunity to have them at their own expense The other section of the amendment strikes out the clause in the Constitution which prohibits State aid to good roads and puts Kentucky along tr J r the line of other more progress ive States so that at some time it may provide foi State aid MOVEMENT NOT NEW tThis question of State aid in is no new question Thirty States in the Union have already providedit and every year others are falling mAine In several States the Constitutions have been amended like it is proposed now in Kentucky- Of the Southern States Florida Georgia Maryland Virginia and West Virginia have granted State aid and in consequence these States are rapidly forging ahead of our own Commonwealth The great State of New York has but recently issued bonds to the extent of 60000000 for road building and other States are coming along with smaller contributionsIn the penitentiary convicts are being worked on the roads with good results If this amendment should be adopted and Kentucky when she is able should provide a tax to assist the counties in the building of turnpikes instead of being a tax it would turn out to be an in vestment Every dollar that the State would contribute would be brought back into the State treasury with interest in increas ed valuation of property It would be the very best invest ment that Kentucky could possi bly make and in ten years in stead of having only fortyone revenueproducing counties there would be seventyfive or eight As the proof of this statement let me give yon a few facts from my own county of Hardin This county is neither rich nor a poor county It lies neither in the Blue Grass nor Pennyrile Fourteen years ago Harjiin county appropriated 100000 to road building and since that time it has been working its roads by taxation and every year adding to its turnpike mileage When road building began in Hardin county its assessed valuation was 3535507 now with its good roads and improvement in them from year to year the valuation is 5371947 Here is an in crease in value of 1800000 in roundnumbers and I want to state to you people that at least 1000000 of that is due dircetly to the construction of goodroads What has been true in Hardin county would be true in the poorer counties of the State if in order to get the benefit of State aid they levy a county tax for road construction FINE INVESTMENT reI Roads Departments of the United States Government I am satisfi ed that the changing of a mud road to a good turnpike road in creases the value of land along side of it not less than 25 per cent I do not believe that you farmers in Bourbon county or anywhere else in this favored section would have your turn piles torn up and go back to mud roads for 25 per cent of the present value of your farms Let me tell you that the Blue- Grass people live in revenue pay ing counties largely because they have turnpikes I have careful ly gone over the Auditors last report and I Sould name you ten Blue Grass counties which would not be revenue paying counties if they did not have turnpikes and 1 could name you twenty V ai I nonrevenue paying counties which would yield more to the State Treasury thanthey draw out if they had turnpikes There is another reason why we should have State aid in Ken tucky And that is that Federal aid depends on State aid The sentiment for good roads in this countY is growing so rapidly from year to year that it is only a question of the very short time when the United State Government will appropriate many mill ion to aid in the construction good roads It is not necessary to discuss the wisdom or justice ofthisThe roads are entitled to as much consideration as the rivers and harbors and the farmers as much as the people who live in the cities Several bills have already been introduced into Con gress carrying handsome appropriations to road building Every one of them provides that the money shall be distributed only among States which grant aid Adopt this amendment and Ken tucky is in line to get its share of this money when it comes Defeat this amendment and Kentucky isforever barred from sharing in Federal aid WANT STATE AID We want State aid to help cou nties which are too poor to build good roads without it for the establishment of rural routes in these sections of the common wealth and to put them in this way into close touch with the world We want State aid to help the cause of public scho 91 education Many States have adopted the consolidated schoolI district plan where brought to school at county expense This is impossible except where there are good roads But you ask me why we who live in Bourbon county or else where in the Bluegrass section vote for this amendment when we already have good roads I answer not because you are c iti zens of Bourbon county but because you are Kentuckians and I did not come here to appeal to your selfishness but to your State pride a n d your patriotism Everything that you do in Bourbon county that is good helps Kentucky as well a s Bourbon county Everything you do that- is wrong reflects on the State as well as on the county Outside of our borders we are known on ly as Kentuckians We in Western and Southern Kentucky share in the honors which have come from your Clays and your Breckinridges while you share inthe honors with us producingI Davis No great man can grow in our State that all Kentucky does not share in the lustre of his name No great crime can be committed in anysection that shame does not fall upon us all It is the part of the rich to help the poor and part of the fortu nate to help the unfortunate Some o fyou remember that many years before the present Constitution was adopted undef the old Constitution which permitted State aid appropriating nearly 1000000 for building turnpiker n tuckyThat one of the great turnpikes extended from Maysville towthe Tennessee line another from Lexington to Winchester and still another to Cincinnati That wsoltheState aid which made rti these great roads and laid the foundation of your turnpike sys tem and now having received that material benefit from the State is it unfair to ask you that it may be extended to the rest of- Kentnckyunder the present Con stitution EDUCATION AND TURNPIKES You people of Bourbon pay twentytwo and onehalf cents on 100 for pUblic school educa tion and less than half of that comes back in your schools The rest goes to educate the poor children most of whom would not be educated if the rich coun ties did not help in this way You do not object to this for the good of Kentucky A man who would run for the Legislature on a platform of repealing the State school tax because some counties paid more than they got back would get a very few votes if he would not be hooted off the stump Why should not the State aid inroads as well as in school Its value would be fully as great It would advance enlightenment encourge education and would add materially to the greatness of the old Commonwealth Under the school law each county receives its per capita over if it does not contribute a cent to local taxes for schools and until recently most of the counties did not contribute any thing I take it that the propo sition of State aid to roads would be on a different basis The State funds would only go to those counties which levied a special road tax and for every dollar that the State spent the counties would contribute 3 or 4 There are seventyfive counties in the State noW which levy no road tax and are pretending to work the the roads under the old obsolete and worthless system of warping in the hands under the road su pervisors These counties prac tically have no roads They are mere trails Pleasure vehicles arev almost unknown to them and the ox teams outnumber the buggies and surreys Just as s oon as the State grants aid to road building these coun ties will in order toget help from the State abandon this old system and levy a road tax It will be the greatest incentive to road building that could be im agined BACHELORS AND CHILDREN What would you think of a rich old bachelor in your commu nity who lived in a handsome home and owned several of your bluegrass farms who declared that he would not pay a city school tax because he did not have any children to educate You would say that he was not a publicspirited citizens and took no interest in the welfare of the community What would you say of the man who because he had a turnpike road in front of his door refused to pay road tax to build other turnpikes in the county What will you say of a county whih would act selfish on this proposition in regard to the rest of the State The great city of Louisville which pays as much money into the State Treasuryas all the rest of the revenue paying counties do combined is heartily and warmly in favor of this amend ment and will give it an over whelmingmajority in November I do not believe they are any more patriotic o r pub1i spirited in Louisville than you people of the Bluegrass and I believe that vCr c J i Lyr y a when you go to the polls in No vember you will vote for the good of Kenttcky for its develop ment its progress and its advance ment by voting for the good roads amendment Shortstops No matter how old a woman is she always turns prematurely grayGirls who become
