The Observer basing its hope
on what Uuion county has ac
complished in other lines, be-
neves ma at no aisiau uj - iup
county will have the best coun
try roads of any county iu Ore
gon . No country on earth has
bettpr, material, and lew. .auj
thing like as good1 for making
first class and endurable coun
try rpsds as this county has The
.oeii is pone lo gouu ir ur
people and therefore the Obser
ver favors the making of Maca
dam roads. We have before us
Partners Bulletin No 05 publish!
edby the U 8 Department, of
Agriculture,' prepared by - Man-,
rice 0 EHridge acting director
of the Bureau of Public Road
Iuquiry, which shows a two
mule team drawing a load of
ten bales of cotton, 5000 pounds
on a macadamized road in Meck
linburg county, N Carolina,
where formerly on earth roads
. in fairly good weather the same
two mules onld have hauled
tint tarn halflfl. The can now
haul the ten bales 5f cotton in
any weather and all seasons of
, me year.
Objectors may meet our plea
for pood roads in Union county
with the statement that ' Meck-
older and richer than Union
county let as see about that.
That there may be no guess
ing we will take the following
cold figures from the U S cen
sus of 1900 and from them de
termine bow much more able
North Oarolnia is to build good
roads than is Oregon Iu 1000
Oregon had a populatioa of 413,
530 on an area of 96,030 square
miles; North Carolina had 1,893
810 people on an area of 62,250
square miles. This gives NO
.about four times as many
people as Oregon. N Carolina
like Oregon is an agricultural
state, deriving primarily its in
come from the soil.
Table CXXIII on page CXXX
I vol. V. U S census "report of
1900 gives the gross farm in
come of 1899, including annual
additions to value of farm pro
perty in N Carolina and Oregon
and number oi persoua engageu
in agriculture on Juue 1, 1900,
as follows: In N Carolina the
gross fatui income including
additioua to value ot farm pro-

to farm property being $1,712,
719. The number of persona
engaged in agriculture was 465,
767. These figures give the
annual per capita incomg to
those engaged in agriculture at
117314. in Oregen the total
gross farm income for the ssme
period including additions to
farm property was $343,869,891
The increase to value of farm
property , being $2,973,649 or
nearly twice the increase in
NO. There were . engaged in
agriculture that year in Oregon
65,SC9 persons If the total
gross income from the Oregon
farms bb equally devided among
the ' persons engaged thertin
the share of each cue wuld be
$624.80, or . $151.66 more than
i be Carolina farms produced per
capita to the, persons who, fork
ed them ' From the above figur
es it would seem that the own
ers of Oregon lands, were to
have' the whole' expense of
making good roads placed upon
mem, which ii. c: ;uo cs:?,
