This amendment was carried by a
small majority but when the amended

Cary, who has consented to act.
That the “croakers” who know but
little about the truth of the stories
they repeat, would bear none of the
investigation expense, while those
who are better posted and find no
fault with road affairs would have to
stand the expense, was the point most
frequently made by the many men

little delay because of their non-arri

morning that he had been promised a
raft of poles this week and that the
work of setting them will begin im
mediately upon the arrival of the first
raft. The new foreman of line con
struction, J. A. Hammond, arrived
Saturday and is now in charge of the
work. All the wire for the line has
now been received and is ready for
the poles. Replying to a question re

new line is up Manager McKenna
stated that a new unit is now on the
way for the power plant at the Smith
mill which will carry as big a load
as the two units now in use and that
in the event of the failure of one
plant the other will be immediately
switched on so there will be little or
no danger of a failure of power. Also

It strikes me that it is not neces

against County Roadmaster Murdock
seriously for County Judge Watson’s
statement several weeks ago showed
that Myrtle Point roads were getting
a large share of county money.
The Myrtle Point “port” scheme
that was put across is proof enough
that the interest there, is all a local
interest, not an interest for the coun
ty as a whole. Isn’t that “port” a
stinger ? I have not read or seen any
one who knows what the Point folks
are kicking about. Why did they not
