Road Catechism. r A representative of The News was in Jamestown the two first days of the present terra of Russell circuit court. Monday morning, before day light a heavy rain stormjstruck Jamestown, but the only damage reported was the uprooting of trees, here and there, in the suburbs of the place. The storm was so fierce, accompanied by a con tinuous roaring of the elements, many people became more or less frightened. The rain raised all the watercourses, and, as a consequence, people were late irtreaching town, and many who were expected failed to put in an appearance. Judge Carter and Mr. A. A. Huddleston did not reach their destination until about the noon hour, hence court was not organized until in the afternoon. After the grand jury had been instructed, four Republican candidates to represent Casey and Russell spoke to the dear people. When they concluded Judge J. C. Carter, made ashort talk, annonnc- candidacy for to, the iffice of Circuit Judge. He was fol lowed by Mr. Lilburn Phelps, who did lot say that he was a candidate to Succeed Judge Carter, but that he Iwas in a receptive mood, and would e the race if his friends over the iistrict thought it was the proper thing for him to do. Mr. Phelps is very I popular in his home county, and he had been assured of a strong following in the other counties of the district. By this time Mr. Phelps is either a full- fledged candidate or he is out of the L race, as the time for filing with the Secretary of State was out last Satur- , i tons in itself and Oa pulling capacity of 5 tons more on the trailer. It does seem that the Good Roads Movement have received a national help in securing this company, for if we can get the Dixie Highway through here suresell county prosper should vote for ly this machine can hold it down. the bonds. Forty thousand dollars is all that is asked, and to carry that REPORT OFTHE CONDITION amount would not be burdensome. OF THE The Rapid Transit Company was organized for the purpose of hauling goods between Columbia and offering better service, quicker delivery and better roads. The company has been operating now for over a week making a round trip daily, and the merchants and shippers are practically unanimous in their approval of the quick and safe delivery. One merchant received 120 dozen fruit jars with none broken, another 4800 pounds of bottles with none broken, which proves the reliability of the springs in this truck. The local manager, Mr. T. B. Short, stated that he had 50 exclusive orders so far and 3 wholesale firms signed for hauling. Evidently this kind of delivery is what the people are looking for and the Rapid Transit Company is pleased with the reception given them at Columbia. A trip over the road to Campbells-vill- e will convince any one of the inr estimable value the wheels have been to the pike. Autoists declare the trip can be made even now with safety, in a little over an ho'ur. The improvement on the road is no surprise to the manager of the company however, as he comes from the where all the roads are being made with this type of machine. Both Mr. Short and .Howard are products of the "Engineering course of the State University. Mr. Short has for the past five years had charge of the compulsory school law and Children's Court, of Lexington, Ky., and is also very much interested in Miliday. Mr. A. A.

The Fiscal court. But it cannot issue them until authorized by the legal voters of the county. In what denominations are bonds issued? Not less than one hundred dollars and not more than one thousand. At what rate of interest per annum? Not exceeding 5 per cent. How long can the bonds run? 1 Not less than five nor more than thirty years. Can they be sold for less than par value? No. When can they be redemeed? At the pleasure of the court after five years. When a bond is called for redemption at a certain time will that stop the interest? Yes. How is the money raised to pay the interest and redeem the bonds? By the levy of a tax on the property of the county. Is any part of it paid by a poll tax? No, What amount of tax can be levied in any one year? Not exceeding thirty cents on the one hundred dollars of the assessed valuation of the county. How is the tax when collected appropriated? First, to the payment of interest on the bonds! Second, the balance to be placed to the credit on "the sinking fund for the redemption of the bonds. Does the county get any money from any other source? " Yes, from the State aid fund for roads. How is this fund raised? By the levy of a five cent State tax on each one hundred dollars of taxable property. What counties pay the larger portion of this tax? The richer counties. Jefferson county pays into the fund over a hundred thousand dollars more than it receives from the fund. What is done with this money. It is paid the poorer counties to assist them in building roads. Does Adair county pay into the State fund more than it receives from Would this be in addition to' the cents levy? No, it would be in place of it. Thirty cents is the limit. Then the annual tax of this could not be much greater under one plan than it would be under the other? No, under the present arrangement it could not exceed five cents on the one hundred dollars. What did our court house and jail cost? Something over forty thousand dollars. Was the credit of the county strained in paying this sum? If it was no one knew it. If the county could pay this sum for a court house and jail (and they do not enhance the value of land in the county.) don't you think it could safely risk sixty-tw- o thousand five hundred dollars in good roads and not be in danger of bankruptcy? To an unprejudiced mind it would seem so. How are public improvements of any magnitude made? By a bond issue? Did the government adopt this plan with the Panama Canal and the Alaska rail road? Yes. Is it usual for counties to issue bonds to construct roads? Yes, it is the usual way. Hundreds of counties have done it all over the United States, and added to their wealth by so doing. Who will be benefitted by the construction of roads? ' Every body now and hereafter. How will it benefit them now? By putting the money in circulation, and giving employment to the unemtwenty-fiv- e Happy Gathering.

Under supervision of engineers furnished by the department of Public Roads. What is the advantage of a bond issue for roads? It enables the county to raise the money and build the roads without delay. With more mileage of construction better contracts can be made The public gets the use of the roads without waiting, and the enhancement in the value of the land comes with the completion of the road. How long will it take to build roads in the county by merely applying the taxes collected and the State aid fund received from the State, as we are now doing? It is hard to guess many of us will be buried before they are completed. How long ought it to take to build roads on the leading highways by borrowing meney on a bond issue? Probably three years. What is the usual enhancement to the real estate of a county by good road construction? It is said to be about ten thousand dollars per mile. At this rate eighty miles of good pike road in the county would increase the real estate eight hundred thousand dollars about twenty-fper cent., on the present value ive as shown by the last census. What rate of tax is now levied by the county for roads? Twenty-fivcents on .the hundred dollars. What amount would be levied should a bond issue be voted? It could not exceed thirty cents.. . e ' ' one-sixt- Following is the program for the Temperance Rally, to be held at the Lindsey-Wilso- n on July the 3rd beginning at 9:30 a. m. ' 1.

They called him Abe in those days. He became the President of the United States and thousands from far places on the earth have visited his birthplace near here to do him honor. They used to make fun of Bill McAdoo back in the home town. Of course they've heard of Bill. He dug a tunnell tinder the Hudson riyer and is secretary of the treasury now. But there are a lot of old tads back in the old home town who sort of hope that Bill will fall over something yet and land in the consomme. And Orville Wright was a regular joke in his old home town.

It Is only those who know that can give us information and the farmers of America should listen attentively to what the men who manage railproperty road Kruttschnitt, exechave to say. Mr. utive head of the Southern Pacific, has written an article dealing with the financing of railroads. He said in part: "The financing of a railroad is a function which the people, through their servants, the Railroad Commissioners and the Legislators, have never attempted, but it is a most important problem, especially to sections of a State where new railroads are needed. The placing of securities has been left entirely with the promoter and owner of railroads. "The immediate determination of what earnings the railroad shall he permitted to receive and what burdens it shall have put on it Is in the .hands of other servants of the public the Legislators and the Commissioners. "Managing a railroad is quite different from managing a government where the money is raised by taxa- tlon. When the expenditures, for good reasons or otherwise, increase, taxes can be equally increased. The railroads, while servants of the public, cannot raise money with such ease and facility. The railroads must keep their expenditures within their Incomes because while they have some control over their expenditures they have almost no control over their incomes, their rates being fixed by public authorities. "There is not a railway manager in the country today who is not fearful that under the press of increasing demands the transportation systems of the country will, in a few years, break down, unless the railroads are allowed to earn larger funds wherewith to build it up. There are vast sections of the country, especially in the West, where more railroads are needed and they cannot be built unless the railways raise new capital. "People invest money in order to make money, and they are skeptical as to whether they can make money by investing in concerns that are dealt with stringently and unfairly. Railroad securities must be made more attractive to Invite investments, and in order that they may be made more attractive, the roads must be allowed earnings that will enable them to meet the increased capital charges." of a Judgment.
