Th following notice has been sent out
by the Commission.:
"You will please take notice that

this resolution originated here, and
The Herald is particularly glad that
the firht move of its program for a
Greater Klamath County has been
made. When the Question of road
construction was raised. The Herald
saw that it would be impossible to do
anything until an amendment was se
cured to the constitution, permitting '
the voting of bonds for a greater sum
than 2 per cent of the assessed valua
tion of the county .and It took Imme
diate steps looking towards the
amendment of the constitution rais
ing the limit to 10 per cent. Senator
Ilaldw in gave his earnest support to
tho suggestion, and introduced a reso
lution calling for this amount, but op

resolution placing the limit at 6 per
