"The commissioners of Grady coun-
ty never were cited for ontempt and
tliero isn't any danger of their going
to Jail whether they put in culverts out
at Taluer or not" was the comment
of Judge Will Linn of the district
court at noon today in commenting
upon a story that appeared In a met-
ropolitan paper this morning.
After an agreement had been reach-
ed a year ago between commissioners
and people of Tabler to put in cul-
verts following a petition for an in-
junction . the commissioners did not
put thctil in. They were merely cited
to appear .before the court .and show
yvhy the culverts were not put. in.
They did it. The reason given was
that they didn't have the funds.
"And that is all there was to it"
Judge Linn said.
Commenting on the mutter one of
the commissioners said: . .
"The reason we did not build the
culverts was that we did not have the
funds to build them with. All road
work was a topped last October except
the grading of the Verden road which
was done chiefly by subscription. The
county commissioners are working un-
der the state highway laws and no one
else is attending to Grady county road
