The county may raise the money to meet th fund-- , available from the state by two methods, v:;: : b r neral taxa tion, and by bond issues. In either cac the county'- - i.r;.ls and the state's funds or both ma)' be tupplemented ly do.ir.Lli::- fiom corporations or private citizens, provided such donations are paid ir cash to the treasurer of the county or state. Since the state is to aid in the building of thc-- e roa'li and since the counties' funds in most instances are veiy lii.iilcd for con-tru- e tion or reconstruction it is only just and fair that tho-- e living along the line of a road to be improved and who leccive Jic direct aul greatest benefit accruing from said improvement shall aid in bearing the expense of each improvement iii proportion to the benefits de-rithe cost, therefrom. And since the state is to pay one-ha- lf the ratio shpuld be state fifty per cent, county 25 per cent, and aLutting property owners and the private subscriptions the other 25 per cent. kst certainly the abutting property owners and private subscriptions should amount to not les than 15 per cent. In the latter event the count- - would have to ay 35 per cent of the cost. The county in no instance should be required to pay for right of waw ties and several others have rePulaski quested state aid for the improvement of certain intei -- county scat roads, stating to the abutting property owners that the county v.'iil put up $5,000, provided said property owncis and other citizens of 11 the county put up another $5,000, and have requested that the work be done under plans and specifications of the State Department of Public Roads and in accordance with the State Aid Road Law. This would in general insure $20,000 worth of road work foi the county. However, tltis depends on the number of applications for -- tate aid and the amounts requested. Few counties are so fortunate as Jefferson, Shelby, Campbell and Kenton as to be able to ask for all the s:te aid fund that they will be entitled to receive, and to be able to appropriate the necessary money from their road fund to meet state aid, without impairing or totally destroying their general maintenance fund. In no instance should the maintenance be Overlooked. seat roads, The roads to receive str.te aid are the inter-coun- t' bee.i improved, then such other roads as and after such roads have may be designated may be improved, but to build a comprehensive system such as is outlined by this law will require ten years with national aid and without it fifteen or twenty years. A county wishing to secure the completion of this comprehensive system at an early date can do so only by assuming the cost of such a system through the issuance of bonds. Usually the county's road fund and therefore the state's portion to the county is so small that only a few miles can be built in one year, but by means of a bond issue a system may be completed at less expensebecausea larger amount of work may be accomplished in a comparatively short time and the roads may be used while they are being paid for by the citizens of the county and commonwealth. The state will reimburse the county for such work done in accordance to the state aid law, to the amount of money actually spent on conthe extent of one-ha- lf struction or reconstruction of roads, payment being made annually athe county's portion of the road fund is available. Two counties have thus far availed themselves of this means of securing good- - roads, viz : Lewis and Carter. The voters of Lewis county appioving the bond issue for $150,000 on the 11th day of July bv i vote of 2,100 yeas to 140 nays. The voters of Carter county, on November 3d, ratified a bond issue for $150,000 for the improvement of their roads by 307 more votes than the necessary two-thiimajoiity required to carry the issue. taken for a bond In every oth: instance where a vote have been in favor of said issue, votes cast issue, a showiWErUsively that a majority of the thinking people thus of their roads by rapid and favor the methods. HF These ctRents are corroborate'd by the result shown from such elections hePFm the following counties: Mason, November 3rd, $200,000; Campbell, November 3rd, $150,000 to build roads, $100,000 to buy toll roads; Kenton, November 3, $200,000; Boone, November 3, $75,000; Pulaski, April 24, and again on June 26th, $300,000; War-le- n, May 19th, $300,000; Simpson, May 2, $100,000, and Menifee, September, $35,000. Unfortunately, however, for the promotion of road building, the s' of the ybtes cast on a bond Constitution requires that question shall be in favor of the same before it shall be declared carried. Every county in the Commonwealth should follow the example Lewis, Lawrejnce, Carter; Johnson, Madison, Boyd, Rockcastle, of Shelby? Warren, Jefferson, Harrison and Logan counties by applying for state aid. No county is too rich as has been shown by Jefferson county's application and no county is so poor that she cannot apply for and receive a portion nf the fund on one of the three plans mentioned above. "No .county can .afford to lose the money she is paying toward the state road fund or fail to accept the generous offer made by the state. ed -- CTaTO Am Kl HtPVV im Tft vmi 1 Mnm Uf iU IU8J 1 LJiAllL IK i-ii-SJ : In the greatvi number of counties in Kentucky, the present method of ;oad building is the same as that which obtained in England in the days ot Oueen Elizabeth. The result is that we have been spending some 5,000,000 a year for roads in Kentucky with no roads to show for it.

It will add not less than 5jL0 to the value of every acre that fronts it. It will increase the value of every product of farm or mine. It will make for good schools, good churches, good citizenship. It will substitute prosperity for pauperism. All that is needed to make actual these' possibilities is that the of State aid. They can do counties in Kentucky avail them-elvof bonds "as ha e Lewis and Carter, by popular subthis by an scription as has Rockcastle, or by local taxation as have Jefferson, Mercer and eight other counties The county which fails to avail itself of State aid will be contributing money for the building of roads in other counties. Thcrcare only four counties in the State tltat, under the State aid plan will pay out more money than they receive. They are Jefterson, Fayette, Campbell and Kenton. The law g was enacted to force the richer counties to help the poorer. There is no county that the State does not stand ready to help provided it will help itself. The State road tax of 5 cents on the $100 has to be' paid whether the county builds roads or not. The county that refuses to accept from the State one dollar in addition to eery one that it puts up, is not going to escape paying the general tax. It is simply giving to other counties the money that ought to be spent on its own roads. If the Fiscal Court of any Counli ty fails to act, the intelligent citizenship and the commercial organiMlHiaBMKJ zations of that county should force it to act. "The time is now. The opportunity is here. What is vour coun- fv going to do with it?" that reduces the cost considerably y. El. Owens, near Conway, last BKOJIHtiAD.
