County Board in Session
Yesterday the County Hoard convened
and will probably be in session for the
rest of the week. An unusually large
docket will he passed upon and some
matters of more than passing import
ance will come up for consideration.
Yesterday much of the time of the
Hoard was taken in passing upon and
undoing the claims which are outstand
ing auaiiist tlie rouiiiv. These will be
carefully examined before they are al
lowed or rejected as the case may Ihi.
The question of the Kiddle road was
again before the Hoard and il was found, j
upon investigation, that more taxpayers
had signed the remonstrance than were
on the petition which was circulated In
favor of the proposed road; accordingly
the Board could do nothing but decide
to reject the application.
Today a number ol matters are lieing
carefully considered, Including some
road petitions and like matters.
Tomorrow the Board will go in a Ixxly
to look into the Hall Creek road trouble,
near Oakland. It Is an appeal from the
damages which have been awarded hy
the appraisers, and reuires the personal
investigation ol the members of the
It is ex peeled that the sessions of the
Board will last uiitil atsiut Saturday,
unless some unexected matters of un
usual importance come up.
