FOR COlhvi'V CLERK
I horohy announce myself as a dum-

The following is from n letter which
Charles Hall of Marshfield is sending
out to people interested in good roads
throughout the county. The "extracts
from the minutes referred to may be
found in another part of this paper.
"At this time, I wish to call tho at
tention of the Executive Committee of
the Coos County Good Roads Assn.
to the highway situation. Enclosed you
will please find extracts from the Min
utes of tho State Highway Commis
sion of Oregon which aro self explan
atory. The writer attended each of
these meetings and state officials nrc
disposed to give us considerable as
sistance. As their nvnutos state, no
extensive appropriation may bo ex
pected by Coos county before 1917.
However, recent developments have
made it room possible that our com
pliance with their conditions, name
ly, tho voting of bonds for permanent
improvements, at an early date, would
enable us to receive SuUo Funds dur
ing the present year for road building
in addition to the survey.
At their meeting for November 11,
1915 when tho funds for this year
were appropriated, the largest single
allotment wns ? 15,000 to Hood River
and Wasco counties, contingent upon
the latter voting bonds.. Wasco coun
ty has not called its election and re
cent advices I have received nro to tho
elfect that they will not call an elec
tion at a very early date, because of
tho inability of the citizens of the
county to ngree upon tho rondo whoro
the money is to bo spent.. If they fail
to vote bonds there will bo $15,000 a-
vailable for the commission to allot to
other sections. Individual members of
that body told us that if Coor. county
should vote bonds this spring, it was
their personal feeling that at least a
part of the Wr.cco allotment for 191(5
could bo diverted for the benefit of
This is nn opportunity which we
should not overlook, as prompt ac
tion will enable us, not only to receive
tho definitely promised aid for 1917,
but to get some immediate assistance I
this year. It is my idea that things
should be set in motion for a success
ful bond election to be held nt tho time
of tho primaries this spring. The state
commission has been asked to begin its
survey of tho proposed trunk routes
in this county at the earliest possible
date and wo hope to have this work
under way within thirty days.
