$300,000 WASTED ON BRIDGES
Shall This Policy be Continued and Taxes
Imposed Every Year for Temporary
SINKINGIFUND WILL ALMOST PAY INTEREST
Commissioners Want Expression From People
Before Calling Election. Location of
Bridges Must be Made Before
Election is Called
Politics—Modern politics ' would |
dictate that the Tribune oppose the
County Commissioners in the pro-
position to bond the county in the
sum of $300,000 for the purpose of
constructing alfout 300 permanent
bridges. Just see what an opportu-
nity we as democrats have of put-
ting they, the republican county
commissioners up against a hard
The commissioners are levying
road and bridge tax to the amount
of $30,000 this year. It will take one
half of this amount, pertiaps more,
to make repairs. ,
That will leave but $15,000 or less
to fix the roads and build new
bridges. About eight or less new
bridges could be built where 300
are needed. People where the ten
bridges are built would be satisfied
and where the two hundred and
ninety are needed and not built they
would he dissatisfied. The ratio Is
one to thirty. Modern politics would
dictate thnt we array against our
political opponents thirty to one
voters by opposing their policies and
few politicians would feel any mor-
al restraint In doing It.
The Tribune Is a democratic paper
hut it is more than a political sheet.
It stands for the best interests of
all the people and while, by oppos-
ing the building of bridges, we|
might defeat the republican jcom-|
mlssloners, we would retard Hie de-
velopment of tlte country and the
convenience of the farmers..
$300,000 is a goodly sum of mon-1
ey and would build n fine set of per-
manent bridges. More than tills am-
ount of money ami energy has al-
ready been wasted upon our roads
and bridges and is now washed away
or rotted away.
More than this amount will be
wasted in the next twenty years if
we pursue the same makeshift
policy we have during the last
Should the sinking fund be invest-
ed according to law, at the end of
twenty years, the people will have
paid about $340,000. Should we do
as has been done this year, we would
at the end of the 20 years have paid
300,1)00 in repairs and would, dur-
ing the time have done without the
bridges and at the end of that time
still he without them.
For these and many other reasons
we propose to not consider political
expediency but to help the commis-
We reserve to the Tribune the
right to sound a warning at any
time. We will make a kick if the
contract for bridges is not properly
let to the lowest and best bidder
and we want the bonds sold to the
highest and best bidder. We believe
thnt if the bonds bear 5 per cent
that we should get at least $30,000
premium which) if invested at 6
per cent would make a big hole in
tlie final payment
There is one thing that we admire
about the law and that is that every
bridge must be located before the
election is called and every man will
know what benefits he and his town-
ship will receive. We venture that
there is no township but what will
receive more value in the cost of
bridges than they will pay in taxes!
for the Rail Roads and towns are
taxed for this fund and no bridges
can he located in any town. We hope
the commissioners will he success-
