Plainfield Ind would be at our service on or before the 20th of February last but unfor tunately some of his family became ill which prevented his coming or the fixing ofa new date for the present We were convinced last summer that the farmers of Fulton county were like the man from Missouri To be convinced uhe had to be shown results Although the investment that each farmer is joining ipared with the benefits derived from it yet it is right and proper that he should be convinced by indisputableJfacts t tat these ben efits will accrue Should ho be come a member and pay his pro rata of the

Fulton Commercial Rev Hall has no doubt forgotten that the Fulton Baptist church is a board mission church and sends no missionaries except through the board The Hearst presidential boom has reached

had before itthe principal one of which being thin depletion of the treasuryand the remain ing bills that are to come before it are of little importance If for DO other reasonit is at least to be

it rather compromising to give the said nominee the unstinted support of the Courier Journal as he has promised Andwhat about the capital the opposition would make out of these precon vention attacks Mr Waterson would do the whole party a favor if he will allow the national con vention to nominate the candi date without let or hindrance Prejudging and denouncing every man whose head rises above the level is not conducive to party unison and party unison is abso lutely essential to democratic success in November The shots which the Courier has taken at som of its contemporaries recently was

Many complaints were heard and many remedies suggested but unless some organized andweil directed inovmncut be made the eds small hope of over accomplishirg tliede sired results i The past winter was

the situation yo better evidence is needed than an inspection of any one of the county roads Who is there who has not seen crowds of men working the roads their implements being garden hoes Who ever saw plows or scrapers or mules and wagons working the roads been warned to work the roads all the shovels spades picks and other tools disappear as if by magic and the men turn out upon the road to work with empty hands or garden hoes and rakes and the important feature of road building is mado a farce of we do not accuse the men but the system that permits of such slipshod methods properly teqo

that in the spring are lined with empty vehicles sunk to their axles in mud and not re coverable until the mad dries roads that in summer are knee deep in dust and seldom very seldom in such condition that a load of any proportions may be hauled on them Some may think this an exaggeration i but ask the first man you see who is compelled to use these highways at all seasons That our present system of keeping up roads is a failure no one disputes and it would seem that the only way to rem edy the evil is to change it Many plans have been proposed but the simplest easiest and quickest way out nf the difficulty is to have the work doue by con tract and paid fur with money raised by direct taxation The fiscal court we are told has power to levy such tax for such purpose and a majority of its members are said to favor this plan The county owns two good road machines and the town of Hickman one One of these machines will accomplish more in a day than a gang of men would in weeks and tho work would bo done right A road once properly made re quires but little subsequent attention to keep it in the best of repair and the results are most gratifying If the court has power to levy a road tax and we believe it has it has been suggested rnunyprominent business men and I by interestedfarmersthat it give this plan thorough consid eration at its meeting in April A uni form road tax the same as a poll tax= such as is effective in many states the proceeds to be applied only to road building would solve this vexations question in this county for all time If this plan meets with the approval of the farmers and business interests of the county we respectfully suggest that petitions be made signed by all who will to the fiscal court asking that the change in the system bo made While It is believed that a majority of the court and perhaps all of it is In favor of a change yet it will do no harm to let the court know by petition that should they see fit to levy a road tax they will know they are acting in corn pliance with tho wishes of the people and for the greatest good to the greatest number The court meets the first Tuesday in April so but little time reo mains in
