of all road taxes must no Into the dis
trict funds. Counties such as Clacka
mas, with hundreds of bridges and
thousands of miles of roads, find it
difficult, with such a small margin
left in the general fund, to keep up
the bridges, put in culverts and meet
other expenses that must come from
the general road fund.
Permanent road work, which Is nec
essarily costly, is hampered by this
condition, and tho taxpayers, as well
as the committee of IS which checked
over tbe county budget, recommended
a general levy of two mills for hard
surfac. Judging from the inquiries from
other counties, tbe problem is not con
fined to Clackamas County.
