Billings' Exorbitant Claims fer Dam
ages Leaves That Stretch of Pa
cific Highway Untouched.
As n resuit of threatened injunc
tion proceedings, damage suits mid
perH;tual controversy over tho Pa
cific highway right of way either side
of Ashland, the county court Satur
day unanimously decided not to im
prove thc-c stretches of rond. but to
stop the grading nnd pavement be
fore the disputed sections arc reach
ed nnd, unless the city of Ashland
straightens out the matter, use tho
money in the other parts of tho
county, there not being sufficient
funds to waste in condemnation suits
or legal controversy. Tho snmc rule
will probably bo adopted for any
stretch of rond in dispute.
"We have no mouey to spend
fighting for what should be donated.
WV: cannot afford to expend funds
forcing improvements upon people
that benefit them and enhance tho
value of thoir property. The state
highway engineer select tho Pacific '
highway route, subject to the ap
proval of the county court. If the
approved route means n law suit or
n hold-up, we simply will use this
money on the other portions of the
rond," is the court's statement.
This decision followed the protest
of a delegation of Ashland people
over the proposed rond through tho
Hillings properly, eliminating the
railroad grade crossing and tho
steep hill this side of Ashland, which
has been viewed aud approved hy the
Mr. Hillings stated that he would
demand four bonds of the county
court ns follews: To prevent damage
from tho retaining wall; to insure
ii continued flow of water from his
spring; to prevent dnmago from
flood water and siphon it tiway; to
provide a way for him to get out
with his hay and for his son to get
in nnd out of the Myers tract. Then
if these four bonds wero satisfactor
ily provided, aud $4000 in gold laid
ou tho table, he would still refuse it.
As a result tho improvement of
the highway will stop at Hear creek,
north of the Hillings' place.
