From rumors afloat there has been more or less confusion in the public mind relative to the route to be followed out from Livingston. Mr. Wiley's state-meat the opening of the meeting clarified that: The Fiscal Court of Rockcastle has designated what is known as the "river route," I as Commissioner of Public Roads, shall in my application for Federal aid to be used, in connection with other funds, in the construction of the road in Rockcastle, approve of and recommend to the Federal authorities, that this route be followed." Before such acceptance it will be necessary to gain the consent of postal or Agricultural (road) Department to designate or create this route road. Mr. Wiley as a post pointed out to interested parties how he thought best to proceed in the matter and the said parties immediately put a movement on to carry it foot and promised forward. The road Commissioner added that to fecihtate mat ters, and save possible delav, in case the Government didn't endorse the river route, it would be well to have the Fiscal Court of Rockcastle, at its setting, on Friday Mareh 8th to so amend its former order of routing to read in such a way that Gauley or some other routing could be fol lowed; one that was satisfactory to the Federal government.
