Tour year* ago C. E. Spence, Master
of the Orange, advocated the Orange
bill which proposed the Issuance of 6
per cent bonds by counties for oon
struction of perm anent roads, the
bonds to be paid by direct tax levy.
Mr. Spence is now vigorously op
posing the road bond bill which pro
poses isuing $(¡,000,000 twenty-five-
year 4 per cent bonds for hard surfaced
roads, A direct tax is not imposed for
the retirem ent of these bonds. Ample
revenue to pay the interest and retire
the bonds at m aturity is already pro
vided by law from the increased auto
mobile licenses and the existing one-
fourth mill state road tax which has
been a fixed tax against all property
In the state for the last four years.
In other words, the bill to be passed
upon by the voters at the June elec
tion will not increase the general
taxes of the individual.
If Mr. Spence was right In 1912 he
is wrong now.

Good roads are indispensable to the
progress and prosperity of any slate
or community. Such Iniprov einents
attract the tourist, encourage local
development, promote social life. Im
prove m arket conditions and stimu-
late thrift. Rural life is made more
attractive and agricultural develop

cessible roads are established and
maintained. The further settlem ent

consequent incrense in assessable val
