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 ty Court. 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 Page 8 - 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 Item In the nudget regarding tho county scaler waa taken up and II. C. Kills ot Ucnd suggested that this offlclal be placed on a lee. baala. Tho suggestion met with approval.
