stieets have run from six to fifteen
thousand dollars a year. It is safe to
say that $250,000 has been spent on
the streets, and with the exception
of those on which brick has been laid
they are not much better off than they
were twenty years ago. Our streets
run on such lines that every heavy
rain urns the gutters into creeks, and
every little .break in the roadway
makes a rivulet that washes the sur
face into the gutters, so a street that
was in good order in the morning may
be as pitted as no man's land by
night. Almost the same may be said
of the county roads.
Several gentlemen, experts in road
building, met with the good roads
committee of the county commission commissioners
ers commissioners yesterday, and with the city
council in the evening. These gentle
men were M. M. Smith, chairman of
the state highway commission, Major
Brown, chief engineer, and Gaile
Brown, assistant engineer.
It will be remembered that some
weeks ago, Alderman Thomas, chair
man of the street committee, and a
good deal of a roadbuilder, was fav favorably
orably favorably impressed by the method of
steet paving and repairing which con consisted
sisted consisted principally of laying a coating
of asphalt on the foundation of lime
already down on most of our streets
and county roads. One virtue of this
preparation is that it binds the lime
together and protects it instead 'of
leaving it to be washed or blown off
by the wind or rain. The roadways at
Camp Johnston are prepared in this
manner, and in the last two years
have stood up under the weight tot
three-ton trucks. Another great all-
vantage of this species of roadbuild roadbuild-ing,
ing, roadbuild-ing, is that we have 90 per cent of
the material in our county, enough of
it near town to reduce hauling to a
minimum. An article in the Star
some months ago told of the superior superiority
ity superiority of Marion county lime, which had
just been tested by the Pittsburg
Testing Laboratory of Birmingham,
and pronounced the best, which is
further proven by the fact that our
lime plants, tho worked at the limit
of their capacity, can't supply the
demand on them.
There is a strong feeling among
the members of the council that the
city should abandon its unbusiness unbusinesslike
like unbusinesslike manner of building streets to
have them blown or washed away as
fast as laid, and that it would lighten
taxes as well as immensely add to the
popular comfort to put down thoro thoro-fares
fares thoro-fares that will stay. There are only
two ways to do this. One is to de
vote the entire street fund to paving
the streets. To take a street and
build on it, leaving the others alone,
until it was finished, and then take
another. This would have worked
very well two hundred years ago, but
we doubt that it would please any
The other is to vote a small bond
issue, put the streets down at once
and let the people have the use of
them while paying for them. This
method would cost just about as
much as to keep the streets in their
present ragged state of repair for
five years. At the end of the five
years we would have the streets, and
could either hold up and save taxes
or go on building more streets. And
