Twelve Hundred and Fifty Good
Roads Boosters Sign Petitions To
The County Court, Asking Bond
BANDON LEADS WITH
FOUR HUNDRED NAMES
Judge Hall Favors Having Road
Election At The Time of The
Regulnr Primary in May. Others
Favor Earlier Date.
Coquille, Feb. 3. Mayor A. T.
Morison, of this city, president of
tho Coos county Good Roads associa
tion, filed the good roads petitions
yesterday with Judge John F. Hall
of the county court and there were
1250 names on the petitions, 400
of which were obtained in tho Bnn
ddon district. Mayor Morison had a
lengthy conference wth Judge Hall"
and the date for holding the election
was thoroughly discuscd . Judge
Hall said he thought it would be best
to have tho election called for the
date of the primary election in May
but this did not meet with the ap
proval of Mr. Morison, as he holds
it will delay proceedings so noth
ing could bo acomplishcd in 1914.
Mr. Morison is asking for the elec
tion to be hold nt the very earliest
date, so that the matter can bo set
tled, and in the event of the bond
issue carrying, bonds can be soli!
at once and the money ready for use
It in held by those who are boost
ing the election that the survey of
roads will occupy considerable time,
and it might be thatno actual hard-
surfacing could be done during
1014, since the grades must be given
time to settle. However, there nre
places where work could bo accom
plished and the hope of the good
roads people is to get the election
off their hands at the earliest mo
ment. Judge Hall, in desiring a
postponement until May, probably
had the thought in mind tho county
could bo saved expense.
Mayor Morison pointed out tho
Jackson county bonds had brought
above par and when they were open
ed there were 15 bidders for them
It is believed Coos Co. would do
well to follow tho proceedings which
Jackson county put into execution,
for their bonds were sold and their
money is 'now available, and grading
is being done this winter.
Judge Hall has set Friday morn
ing of this week for the considera
tion of the petition and to hear what
tho good roads advocates have to say
about tho dnte of the election.
Mayor Morison sends out a gener
al invitation to all who nre inter
ested in the bond election to be pres
ent at tho county scat on Friday
morning to advance ideas and appeal
to tho commissioners for no delay.
