in this the fingerprints of consummate

creation of the state road department,
state aid roads were intended to be
located with a view more particularly
$of connecting the various county
seats. As late as Oct. 8, 1919, the
state road department sent out the

You are entitled to this informa information:

You inquire: Your position on

ton Blitchton dread the fire. In passing, we
fear the sea of disappointment will
engulf us. S. H. Blitch.
Our good friend Dr. Blitch seems
to have been misinformed. The Star
on Nov. 7th printed the resolutions
which the state road department
adopted on July 29 and 30, of this
year, in apportioning the state and
federal funds to the various counties
to be used on the state roads. The
resolutions specifically stated that to
get the $280,000 Marion county must
put up enough money to complete
state roads No. 2 and 5 through the
county. The law places the spending
of the state and federal funds in the
hands of the state road department
and the road department has acted as
The act referred to by which the
county commissioners are empowered
.to borrow money was enacted to per permit
mit permit the commissioners to borrow
about $30,000 to meet state and fed federal
eral federal funds of a similar amount that
was to have been spent on the Dixie
Highway. These state and federal
funds were later withdrawn by the
state road department in view of the
new proposition of $280,000 now
made. The act provides that the
county commissioners can borrow the
money ofr a period of four years only.
Does Dr. Blitch think the county can
borrow $500,000 and pay it back in
four years? It would take a sinking
fund of $125,000 a year.
We think the doctor is mistaken
about the Citra road having been
made a state-aid road. He also over overlooks
looks overlooks the $80,000 that is to be spent
on the Blitchton road under the pro proposed
posed proposed bond issue.
SPEND THE COIN
(From the Weekly Star, Nov. 27.)
Editor Star: It has been rumored,
and, in fact, freely discussed in the
county that if the bond issue now
proposed carries, the moneys will be
expended under the supervision of the
advisory committee to the board of
county commissioners and the board
of bond trustees.
This report is misleading, and as
one of the many who are opposed to
the issue of the bonds because of the
unwarranted waste of funds in build
ing roads in the past by the board of
county commissioners, I have had my
attorney advise me in regard to this
particular matter, his letter being as
In reply to your inquiry in rela relation
tion relation to the duties of the trustees and
the advisory committee, as to the con construction
struction construction of the roads if the bond issue
carries, I have to advise:
1. The advisory committee con consisting
sisting consisting of Mr. Munroe, Mr. Mayo, Mr.
Blowers and others, have no powers
whatever, except as delegated to them
by the board of county commissioners,
and of course this board could not
delegate any of its powers, and the
committee is therefore advisory only,
and as I understand was selected to
lay out, or rather point out, the best
routes, and the proper places to build
roads. They have nothing to do with
the expenditure. of the funds, nor the
construction of the roads.
2. The bond trustees have no pow powers
ers powers except as given them by the sta sta-ttue;
ttue; sta-ttue; these powers are to receive the
funds and hold same subject to the
orders of the board of county com commissioners;
missioners; commissioners; they receive from the col collector
lector collector the moneys collected as taxes
under the levy for retiring same, and
are charged with the duty of investing
this money from time to time; they
neither have charge of the road con construction,
struction, construction, nor do they pay for it; this
is left wholly with the board of county
commissioners. This question was
discussed in Suburban Investment
Co. vs. Hyde, 61 Florida, 809, and the
court there discusses the powers and
duties of the board of county com commissioners,
missioners, commissioners, holding that the such
board cannot delegate its authority to
the trustees. The court said:
"The requirement of Section 796 of

proceeds from the sale county bonds
shall be paid to the trustees of the
