Good Roads For Coos County
THERE will ho n meeting ht the Odd Fellows' Hall In Mnrshfleld
tomorrow ovenlng that Is of great Importance to every resident of
this city. It is a meeting of the Coos County Good Roads Associa
tion to secure a more active Interest In tho construction of good roads In
this county. Every man on Coos Hay should ho there. If you can't
get Iu show by your presence that you are Interested in tho movement.
Hotter public roads Is ouo of tho crying needs of tho entire country and
especially In Coos County, -where tho crying need has become a weep
ing and walling necessity. In other parts of the country tho fight for
good roads hns been going on for soma time, but hero wo have been
To secure Immediate results along this lino it Is first necessary to es
tablish a local pride and n progressive spirit In this movement In tho
community. Thnt Is tho purpose of the meeting tomorrow evening and
Tho Times congratulates President Morrison on his activity and enterprise
Iu promoting this meeting.
Road making is a science. It Is also an Investment, nnd an nssct
to the towno and cities as well as the farm lnnds adjoining. Whllo
something tins been done in Coos County, thoro Is yet a great deal more
to bo done. Our County Court has been liberal In tho mutter of machin
ery and In encouraging the building of roads, but It has neon handi
capped by lack of system. Great responsibility rests upon tlio Individuals,
and the community. If there Is no pride and no desire for better menus
of travel, then there will he no development. I'llces of farming lauds
have advanced more rapidly than road building has developed, and un
less more attention Is glvon to tho highways, there will bo a deteriora
tion in values.
Our rord laws may not bo perfect, and doubtlesH can bo improved
itpnu. but If rightly applledwlth a little grit and determination Coos
County will develop" more rapidly in the future than lu tho past. Every
mini nnd woman Interested In the future f this section should secure If
possible, a copy of these laws, study them, talk thum over with tho
uelgl'bors.nnd then go to work nnd build good roads.
