Failure of Voters To
Pass Increased Bond
Bill to Cripple Work
Ship's Officers
Accused Of Death
Of Two Are Heard
' Failure of the voters of the state to
approve, the measure providing an In
crease from two to four per cent in the
state indebtedness for road purposes,
will serious handicap the state high
way program, accordingto the legisla
tive committee named to prepare an
argument in favor of the measure for
publication In the official voters' pam
phlet.. The argument which la pre
pared by Senators B. L. Eddy and
Xuls Lachmund and Representatives
W. H. Gore, 1 M. Graham and Jos.
S. Stewart reads as follows:
; "As the constitution now reads,
bonds of the state may be issued for
the purpose of building and maintain
ing permanent roads, not exceeding
two per cent of the assessed valua
tion of all property of the state. If
the people adopt the amendment now
proposed, the limitation will be fixed
at four per cent of the assessed valua
tion of all the property of the state.
Under the constitution as It now
stands, and under the present assessed
valuo of the property of the state the
limit for bonds for road purposes is a
little less than twenty million dollars.

"I can readily be soon that no direct
property tax whatsoever will be neces

of this amendment. The plan is to con

wo are now doing, by requiring the

uf this year the registrations are 17,000

period lust year; and as they exceeded
83,000 In 1919, evon without any pro

If no new cars nt all should be sold
luring the ten mouths' period between
March 1st and the end of the year the
number of registrations would bo more
than 100, 00Q for 1920.
,"It Is far more .likely to be over
110.000, but the committee fels that it
is better to underslute than to overes
timate tho Income. Tho estimated In
crease of motor vehicle, and income
from year to year has also been placed
on nn Sxtremoly conservative basis.

greater than these figures show.
. "It should be borne In mind that to
adopt the amendment now submitted
to the people does not mean In Itself
a new bond Issue except for the ten
million Issue (chapter 43, Laws of
1820) recently authorized by the spe
cial session of the legislature which
urgently neded In order to keep the
road program under way; also to en
able the state to match both the fed
eral aid funds now available and funds
which may be authorised by pending
congressional legislation.

"So much has been suid from the

between means of communication and

To our regular customers we need say nothing more. But if you have
never been present at a Season's Opening of Stetson and Mallory Hats
please consider this your invitation.
There are two reasons ivhy two out of three men come to us for their
hats. "
One is that we have the best choice of Stetson and Mallory in this
community. Soft Hats and Derbies.
The other is the taste which would almost make us lose a sale rather
than have a man go out with a hat that does not suit him just to the dot.
You do not take a chance to lose if you purchase here.
