f"3evenuo Provided for Interest
and Principal on Road
Opponents of the road bond bill
'ntend that the proposed bond Issue
become an added burden to the
3renerl taxpayer. As a complete an
wr and refutation ot this argument,
abe Legislative Good Roads Commit
"ttea has Incorporated the following
statement as a part of its argument
la support ot the bond bill which will
fee published in the official state pani
"Wo have ascertained from the rec
ords of the offico ot the Secretary ot
State that the Income from the pres
ent quarter-mill tax Is $220,000 per
annum; that the income from auto II
cerises, based upon the present mini
"ber of automobiles at the increased
-3lcense rate effective August lBt, will
bs not less than $310,000 per annum
to be used in paying interest and prin
cipal of bonds. Tho above funds will
sufficient not only to pay me in-
Merest and the principal ot the $6,000.-
woe. Bonus auinonzeu oy mis a. uu
-win also pay the luterest and prftcl
jpal of the $1,819,280.55 in bonds author
.tied tp meet the government road" ap
propriation. After paying these bonds
stuere -will be a surplus of 'it least $2,
V793,402.6. Slnco 1911 the Increase In
"the number of automobiles In the
State of Oregon has been 33 per
cept per year. With the completion
of good roads this Increase will natur
ally be larger.. However, we have not
"taken any increase into account but ;
'Qtave based our figures on the present-,
Slumber of aiito'Uiobiles."
GOOD ROAD POINTERS
Good roads will make Oregon tho 4
greatest dairying center In the world.
Remember this when you vote on the
. load bond bill In June.
'The proposed bond issue will pro
vide good roads at no greater cost
than the state Is now paying for poor
"The action of the recent Legislature
-In doubling the annual license on au
tomobiles and making the funds de
lived therefrom available for road
instruction Is Justified by the rea
soning that It Is the automobile that
destroys the road and It should bear
.the burden of road construction.
""When publie money is honestly
'aipent on a road every dollar becomes
three dollars," says the Portland Jour
3naL "First, there is the dollar In the
xxi Itself. Second, there remains in
She community the dollar which has
"3een paid out for labor and material.
'Third, there Is the dollar of economic
Tralue added to the land adjacent to
ahe road. This Is a real value, not a
speculative ono. It Is an Increase In
Better reasons for supporting the
zoad bond bill June 4th could not be
offered. It may be depended upon
that Highway Commissioners Benson,
"Thompson and Adams will see to It
3thnt every dollar of the road fund is
3&onestly expended and full value re
amed In roads honestly constructed.
The personnel of the Highway Com
fission, appointed by Governor Withy
Qombe, is in itself a guarantee that
"jse money derived from the proposed
'45.000,000 good roads bond issue will
'3be wisely and economically1 expended.
- St Is a further guarantee that every
srent of th money will be spent in
practical road construction. There
will be neither waste nor extrava
gance in the expenditure of the fund.
'In voting the good roads, bonds June
4th, the voters of the state are taking
absolutely no chances. The bill au
thorizing the bonds specifically de
ascribes the roads to be Improved and
t defines the general character of their
- construction. Dids will be invited and,
jII the proposals' are excessive, the
"Highway Commissioners have an
nounced that they will do their own
slaving. What more could be asked?
None of the money to be expended
Hor good roads under the bonding act
will be expended In Multnomah Coun
ty although that county pays 40 pet
cent of the automobile licenses of th
r-atate and a proportionate share of the
.aregular quarter mill road tax.
