As listed some time ago in tbe Herald,
tbe pro,weed district road construction
plsn as it is to be applied along the
Base Line and Section Line roads, will
prove a hardship on the property
owners. Many of the farmers oot that
wav are coming to see it that way now.
They have contributed already to tbe
general road tax, not only for that part
which may be expended along the Base
Line but they have borne their part
also of tbe large sums that are being
expended along tbe Columbia, and
which is not supplemented by a local
district fund. On top of thia it ia
proposed they shall build a large part
of their local road.
Another matter that hurts is that the
road to be constructed will wnen com
plete. be an extremely bard one for
horse* to travel upon.
It will be ex
tremely slippery in cool weather, par
ticularly, and that means at least eight
months in tbe year. It will be so slip
pery that only by constant care can an
ordinarily shod horse stand np on it.
In warm «nattier wagons and machines
• ill be liable to pick np tbe surface and
leave it full of small bole* which will
grow with use and the road will soon be
ready for repairs. The adoption of this
pavement has caused unfavorable re
ports over in Washington, near Heattie.
