Pt'iiusylvaiila In Bail Predicament As
Result of Recent Klectiou,
Because of tho doreat of tho pro
posed amendment to tho state consti
tution authorizing a bond Issue for
road building, Pennsylvania may havo
to abandon its state highway system
and turn 10,000 mllos of stato high
ways back upon tho 1200 townships
from which thoy wero taken.
Under tho Sproul Act of 1911, tho
stato of Pennsylvania took possession
of 8600 miles or roads that form
connecting links botweon county
soats nnd other Important communi
ties. In 1913 1400 miles wero ndded.
When tho leglslnturo created this
system of main stnto highways It was
oxpectod that funds for Improving
and maintaining tho ronds would be
provldod by a bond issue. At tho
election of November. 1913, howovor,
an amendment to tho Constitution
providing for an issue of $50,000,000
bonds wns voted down, nnd under
the terms of tho constitution another
such amendment cannot bo voted on
for at least flvo years.
