money for market roa'ds, and we are
opposed tothe tine of this fund for

In other worda, we want to use the

their statements showed, but
wheri it became evident that to faeild
roads which are even now being clnm-
r ored tor by different communities,
moretnoney than th small sum socur
ed by taxation must be secured, The
question of th advisability of seeking
to float a bond Issue was raised.
No attempt definitely to authorise
such s move was made by the federa
tion Itself, but statements mad by
u majority of the delegates in attend
ant indicated ' that they thought a
bond lesue conld be put over. Finally
a motion was made which authorised
each towns organlratlon, to take up
th matter of the advisability of
launching such a move. 1 The next
meeting of the federation will be held
Yor the purpose of hearing report
from- every community in the county
