This meeting met for the purpose of

The above paragraph is false.
Simply false, a many statements
of the R"utfr generally are. The
BboadAxe ha earned its living
and ha not called for charitable
contribution to the amount of

or otherwise. The RroaivAxf. has
always given an equivalent for all we hnve pan! to Wie railroad corn

th in an outrage.
There is no doubt als.ut tin com
pany having iuwirporat.-d to con
siruei a roai iu 111.11 me k!
pany has ever complied with
j law so as t give it the shadow of a .
right to charge toll on the r ad, or
in any way to interfere with the
travel over the road wp the McKen-1
ie, which was first ojicned by Fclia I
Scott, as-ist.,1 by the p,,.pie of;
Lns eiiw44T thr-i-es-tlainly nn
ipjestion. It Is-ing a fact that the
company has imt "rlenred the road
way of standing t imlx-r for thirty
feel in width, nor have they a trm k
in the center not c thin sixtstu
feet wide, finished and kept in good
traveling condition, except wher
cutting on said road ia six ft or
more di'i i un nither side, in whieh
cas. such track need not be more
thin ten f.-et wide with turn outs of
IGfeet i i width for every quarter
of a mil'-of such uarrow track, as
the law require. Any p-rson who
has been ovet the road will have
seen thiil no part ol the law ha
Is-cn complied with in clearing it
of standing timber for 30 feet in
width, and having a track in the
center 1 ft wide finished and
kept in good traveling condition.
And that this company has been
allowed to h arras and aunoy
and cxt'rt off the public in
the way tiny have rs simply out
ragcou' and the county court is
greatly at fault, that it has eon
nived at thowj wrong and assisted
and protected this quasi rorisra
tion in well nigh rubbing the pub
lic, (rood roads, and freo road
are w hat tho p-ople and the pro
gress of the age demand. Toll road
and toll bridges, and toll ferries'are
la-hind tha age, and w herever and
whenever we see one of there anci
ent institutions we are reminded U
the daya when civilisation was in
its larva state, so to SH-ak, being
only the cata pillar, and not the full
grown butterfly. This pteudn
corporation road company might
a well praps 'e to get out of the
way t lie re, for the increasing d.
ttiand of the settlers np the Ma
kttiiie and tho of the public who
ever year w ant to visit the apringa
and the mine and to pata over
lb Cascade cast, will surely ace
to it that the law will be invoked
in th-tr protection and 'hat soon.
