been received by the Enterprise In
favor , of a more systematic plan of
road building In Clackamas county. .
The articles are gladly given apace lni

that other tax payers and citizens of
the county may be inspired to send
In their views of this -rery Important
question. Let the agitation go on;
good will come out of it. . When It U
generally understood that a half mil

roads and bridges of this county dur

of the question becomes at
once apparent. The question at once
becomes bigger than any man, and
all this talk about ita being a flgbt
between tho city and country will be
put aside and we must and will look
at It from a business and economical
standpoint. The articles follow:

T. P. RANDALL
Editor Enterprise: A few reasons
why road construction in Clackamas
county has not been a auccehs.
It hag been stated that from 33 to
50 per cent of all moneys spent upon
the county roads of Clackamas county
has been wasted, and the statement Is,
without doubt, true, for It proves It
self. One -has only to know the amount
of money-ao-apent and iho-cot- per
mile of macadam road, to at once real
ize the truth of the statement- .
The present so-called monev ryatem
was Inaugurated In ' this co'inty In
1892, and since that time the money
appropriated for, and spent upon the
roads In this county amount. to ap
proximately the enormous sum of two
million dollars; this at $10,0(V) per
mile, which is a liberal estimate, would
give 200 miles of first diss, scienti
fically built macadam trunk road,
whereas, the fact, Is, there Is not. one
continuous mile of such road In the
At 12000; which amount should clear
and turnpike a mile of ordinary dirt
road, wo should have on thousand
miles of uch roads In the county.
We fall short of the realization of
either proposition; probably even the
60 per cent la too small.
Road building Is a science, which
has been jriadually bun' up and de
veloped through two thonsii.l years;
the lawa governing the science of road
building are laid down In numeroua
text books and can be studied and un- -derstood
by those bavin? thu time and
Inclination to learn.
It is only reasonable to stale that
one who has studied an I demonstrat
ed these laws for a number of years
is better qualified to build a road.
than one who has never read of, or
seen demonstrated the proved best
method of road construction.
The essentials of a good wagon rond
1. Easy grades, i
2. Thorough drainage.
3. A hard and smooth surface.
These essentials cannot be secured
without an Instrument, or without a
man behind that Instrument. This
man should also be backed up by
enough money to make his serlces
worth while. ,
Last year there was spent on tho
public roads In this county, approxi
mately, $170,000; but this money was
so scattered that It was sadly Ineffect
ive; the same can be said of the $V
000.000 spent In the last eighteen years
In thla county. . ' '
The reasonable deduction Is that an
engineer, with the proper backing by
the County Court, would show a great
