bewail is a lamentable lack of means
by which to transport our surplus pro

of egress, no less than half a dozen
projects of roads to the Coast ure being
agitated by zealous advocates, each
claiming superiority for their particu
lar route. Of course such a diversity
of opinion and lack of concert in action
is productive of no good and will be
fatal to all in the end. Wo must know
what wo want. The best and most
practicable route should be ascertained
and a united effort made to securo its
construction. This is the only method
of overcoming the disadvantages un
der which we are laboring, and tho
sooner this fact is appreciated the bet
ter will our mutual interests fare. Sec-
tional and individual interest must be
laid aside, for the more universal the
benefit produced by any one road so
much greater is the argument in favor
of its adoption.
