PIUNEVIL1.E. Dec. 8.-From near
ly every port or tho county tho tax
payers gathered Saturday to attend
tho meeting hero called for a discus
sion or tho budget of expense for
tho coming year. A expected, tho
rnilft Ifnm wna p(vn tliA ntf ..-
been proposed waa mndo by tho Coun
Judge Springer proponed that tho
eastern part or tho county bo given
$60,000 for road work and the west
aide only $1S,000. It wna planned to
peud $6000 on tho "high desort"
road from Ucnd. $6000 on Uie Mc
Konxlo and $5000 on the Iloegli
grndc. The $60,000 waa to bo used
on tho roods between Prlnovlllo nnd
Mitchell, Prlnovlllo nnd Dear Creek
and Prlnovlllo nnd Paulina. Thla
$76,000 wna to bo raised liv a 7-inlll
levy. Vlgoroua opposition to such a
Bchemo canto from tho western dele
gatlon, the chief spokesmen of which
were J. W. Ilrowcr of Redmond and
George Altken of Sinters. Tho east
aldera trlod to mako it appoar that
tho biggest and the grentest number
of taxpayers live on tho eaat aide, but
thla waa effectually contradicted by
tho figures or tho laat election.
Springer's .Idea was that the east
aide did not nave railroad transpor
tation and therefore nhould get tho
county roads, nnd he was strongly
auported by Isadora Myers and Wm.
Congloton as spokesmen of the eaat
alders. The Judge trlod to force n
vote on hla propositus,' but waa met
with audi ahnrp opposition that ho
let the matter drop.
F. King spoko ImjUi as an Indi
vidual and .aa .secretary of the Good
Roada Association. In the course ot
hla remarks ho mado tho atatnmont
that It you draw a lino north nnd
aouth approximately 5 miles eaat of
Prlnovlllo you would have nearly
$2,000,000 of assessable property on
tho cast 8ldo of tho lino and $0,000,
000.000 on tho west slda; thai It you
draw a lino north and aouth 7 in Ilea
- i r
wcat or I'rlnovllle you would hayo
approximately $3,000,000 (oxclu
alvo or l'rinovlllo) cast or thla line
and approximately $6,400,000 (ex
clualvo or Doiid) west or the line.
Enforcement of tho atato weed
law waa dlacunscd and it waa the sen
timent that a strict enforcement or
thla law would bankrupt the county.

tho county scaler waa taken up and

dellrercd beforo January 1. to which
dnto the company naa been granted
an extension or time.. The finishing
of tho flume Is being done In Port

even if the flume arrives by Janu

couple of months later, as tho camps
aro being shut down and will not be
reopened until spring work starts.
