cently reprinted by Uio Oregon Voter,
Oregon spends more for roads per
capita than any stato In the Union.
While this Is In a great mensuro

comparative figures aro somewhat

eral hand Oregon tax payers havo
been footing road" bills. And a good
manypecJple believe wo haven't got
ns much In roturn as should be.
Tho Federal figures show a total
expenditure by state and counties In
Oregon for 1914, for road work, or
$7,062,631, or $10. 49 per capita.
The pur capita average for the entlro
country Is $2.61. Oregon Is the
highest of all.
Oregon has two third? heavier ex
penditure per capita than does Cali
fornia and nearly half as much as
California for tho year's total. Wash
ington, according to tho flguies,
spent about threa quarters of a mil
lion loss than did Oregon, though
with n population double ours.
In actual total, sajs the Voter,
Oregon ranks thirteenth of tho 48
stntea. Wo spent nbout one fourth
nBmjirh as Now York, and about as
much as huge Texas and rich Minne
sota nnd Illinois, and more than
Massachusetts and Kansas,
