In their effort to create an impres impression
sion impression that "Florida is Backward," and
non-progressive in road building, ad advocates
vocates advocates of the constitutional bonding
amendment have- repeatedly Btated
that "the little bonding some few of
the counties have .done amounts to
nothing," and that the additional
LonJ3 they ask will not be felt. The
Tribune, knowing the-contrary to be
true, asked M. M. Smith, chairman
of the state road department, to fur furnish
nish furnish this paper with a statement
showing the district and county bond bonded
ed bonded indebtedness for roads and the
number of miles of roads built in each
county. Mr. Smith readily and cheer cheerfully
fully cheerfully set to work collecting this data
from the different counties, and sends
the Tribune the statement asked for,
except as to the miles of road built.
In his letter of transmittal he regrets
that he cannot give the mileage built,
because fewer than ten counties re responded,
sponded, responded, even in part, to that ques question

Analyzing this report we find that:
Florida is already bonded for $27, $27,-211,703
211,703 $27,-211,703 for good roads, a greater
sum than the bond amendment men
are seeking to have put on the state
the first of the year, and which, if
they succeed, will make tne total
bonds about $50,000,000 for good
roads, with any amount added they
may ask for in future years.
It shows that the eleven South

v ENRICHES FARMERS
Kansas Farmers are Gathering a
Bumper Crop from "Deserted
Topeka, Kans., Aug. 24. Stories
of sudden wealth in the Kansas wheat
belt are numerous this year, due to
the unusual acreage of "volunteer
wheat," a crop grown from seeds
which fall in the previous harvesting.
Officially estimated there was 1,500, 1,500,-000
000 1,500,-000 acres of volunteer wheat in Kan Kansas
sas Kansas this year, or about a sixth of the
total .harvested acreage. This wheat
yielded probably 40,000,0Q0, bushels
or representing a monetary value of
about $100,000,000. The total -Kansas
crop of wheat is estimated offic officially
ially officially at 150,000,000 bushels.
-The large acreage of volunteer
wheat is due to the fact that a great
deal of this acreage was deserted as
wheat land by the owners, after last
year's none too bountiful crop had
been harvested. The 1919 acreage
was in excess of 11,000,000, by far
the record for any state in the Union.
A wet fall caused the kernels of wheat
which had fallen to the ground dur during
ing during the harvesting to germinate.
Finding the "volunteer" crop mak making

the growth and, with ideal wheat
growing weatehr this' spring, the vol volunteer

bountiful as the rest of the crop.
Innumerable stories of "deserted
acreages" producing $5000 to $25,000
worth of wheat come from western
Kansas where the bulk of the volun
teer wheat was grown. Others tell
of farmers who purchased farms thi3
year and paid for them with the re

Illustrating the "sudden wealth" gen general
eral general throughout the western Kansas
counties, whjrre land has been cheap
and favorable seasons few and. far
between, a recent canvass of wheat
yields in the vicinity of Oakley, a
small town 60 miles east cf the ol ol-orado
orado ol-orado line, in Logan county, showed
at least 50 farmers whose wheat
crop sthis year are worth more than
$50,000 each; at least 25 have more
than $75,000 of wheat each and every
farmer has a good crop. Thirteen
counties, most of them of northwest
Kansas, this year are yielding .43, .43,-701,637
701,637 .43,-701,637 bushels of wheat, according
to the latest ofHcial estimate by the
state board of agriculture.
The one big drawback to the Kan Kansas

year is the lack of facilities in which
to transport his wheat to the market

ially especially in the central and western parts
of the state, but the situation i3 not

oats and barley crops which have
been harvested. The state raised
20,000,000 bushels of barley four
times the average annual yield of the
last 20 years.
Alfalfa and grain sorghums, to
which millions of acres are devoted
in Kansas, likewise are producing
bountiful crops. Kaw valley potato
growers report one of the best crops
ever known. As one editor of western
Kansas puts it: "The horn of plenty

affairs to say the least, for we are
convinced that the move, is so much

editors in this respect. It is not our
intention to find fault with their
convictions. Rather would we appeal

our glory is greater. But let us help
our brothers-who are poorer!
It is no argument to be able to say:
"Florida is free of bonded indebted indebtedness;
ness; indebtedness; let us keep her so." It would be
just as sensible to say: "Now that I
am out of debt I will let the house go

gressive progressive city in the world, has a bond bonded
ed bonded indebtedness of over two hundred
millions. The city has oyer four
times the population of the state of
Florida and yet thinks nothing of
bonding for ten times as much as the
proposed bond issue for Florida. We
have seen ,no good and substantial
reasons why we should not take this
, step, and as our authority we are
going to quote some of them: "It will
cost every taxpayer .in Florida $100";
"This is only a move by. the Florida
Auto Association"; "The move is only
one to establish more roads for joy joyriders";
riders"; joyriders"; "We don't believe in placing
such an amount in the hands of the
legislature"; "How do we know "this
money will be handled juSiciously ?"
"Only a convenience for autoists."
In contravention to these silly ar arguments
guments arguments digest this: Here is a chance
to open well-nigh inaccessible places;
thousand fold; to place our lands in
the hands of settlers who will engage
in an industry which is and ? always
willbe the basis of values agricul agriculture

bring the markets closer to the pro

beauty spots; to spread the fame of
Florida and her good roads to the far
points of the world. Is there a man
and taxpayer in the state of Florida
who would not be willing to pay $5
a,r year for a term of years for all
this ? We wonder. ; Strange to say in
all these arguments against 'the pro proposed

ulation. population. Are the opponents of the
opinion that Florida is going to stop
where she is? And isnt it a fact that
the advancement we have made, has
been due directly to good roads? Axe
we going to stop and wait for each
separate 'county to line up ? Again we
wonder. Florida Grower.
There will probably be a great
many people who after reading the
foregoing well-written article, will
fail to realize that the Grower has
not even mentioned the main point at
issue if the bonding amendment car carries;
ries; carries; namely, the ability, of the legis legislature
lature legislature to put another sawlog onsthe
camel's back every time it meets. We
might not object to one $20,000,000
bond issue if we knew the money was
needed and would be honestly spent.
But if this amendment ; carries it
gives power not only to the next leg legislature
islature legislature to bond for twenty million
dollars, but the next legislature after
that to bond again, and so on and on
and on, thru not only the decades but
maybe the centuries. No us to say
the legislature won't do it. ";. Only a
foolish people will give its legislative
body 4;hat : much power. Seldom it
is that men or women give up power
once placed in their hands. The his history
tory history of ages shows that power has to
be wrested from them. And with the
power to make a bargain with the
next legislature, by bonding for five
or ten, or maybe another twenty mil millions,
lions, millions, it will be in the opinion of al almost
most almost any legislature, no business to
give the people a chance to repeal this
amendment, once it is saddled on the
state, It; is not that we consider the
average Florida legislature to be made
up of dishonest men.' It is made up
of average men and will in future
years be made up of average" men and
women, and average men and women,
world over and world from begin beginning,
ning, beginning, and probably world without end,
have been loath to give up power,
privilege or graft.
This argument alone is worth more
than all the Grower can bring up on
the other side which is probably the
reason why the Grower has carefully
abstained from mentioning it.

place in the history of Florida" when
it comes to spending the people's people's-money.
money. people's-money. It's like the patent medicine ;
faker, who holds out his medicine to
you at a dollar a bottle as he assures
you that you will never again have
the opportunity. But as long as you
have a dollar you will always have ai
chance to buy a fake, patented or
otherwise, and this $20,000,000 gold
brick is the biggest fake .- anybody
has ever had the nerve to try to hand
the, people of Florida.
The Grower dwells heavily on the
brotherly business, inferring that it
is the duty of the big, strong counties
to chip in to help the small, weak
ones. Says it thinks' the good ex example
ample example will make for enterprise. We
think it will only add to damlazine'ss.
The people in some of those counties
are not going to do anything they can
induce the big brother counties, the
state or : the government to do for
them. Marion county has spent about
a million and a quarter dollars on its
roads in the last twenty years. It
will spent $60,000 on them this year,
and has bonded for $560,000 to build
its part of two important highways.
We are going to pay about 5 per cent
in state and county taxes this year.
When you consider that the state and
the governing already J- is offering
these backward counties a 50 per
cent bonus oil what money they raise,
you may very well ask what do they
want anyhow. That twenty million
dollar amendment will be like brib bribing
ing bribing a man to ; help support his own
family. A-Vy'-- : -;----:
The Grower speaks of f California.
Aside from .the fact that Calif ornia is
nearly three times as big as Florida,
has three times, the population and
ten times the taxable wealth, have
the voters of California by an amend amendment
ment amendment to their constitution' bound
themselves to cough up twenty mill million
ion million dollars every other yeari if their
legislature says so ? We trow not.
Also, we trow that the people of Flor Florida
ida Florida will not.
The Grower holds up, to us as an
example the city of New York, the
gateway to North America, with, trade
from the entire world pouring into its
harbor, and trade from all the United j
States and Canada pouring out, with
four times the population pf Florida
and more taxable property m any one
of' several of its business blocks than
there is in our entire state. And
doesn't it know the people of New
York, with all their wealth and en enterprise,
terprise, enterprise, are loaded down with and
bitterly complaining of their taxes?
When you come to talk about build building:
ing: building: 6ads, Florida has most of the
northern states beaten, for there the
roads are lanes thru a country set
thick with.' cities, towns, villages and
f arms not for a minute is a motorist
out of sight of a house; where in
Florida he can drive for miles and
never see a human being, let alone a
house.; It's a wonder that we have
any roads at all. v
. Then this argument about Florida
having no bonded debt. We believe
the state is free from this burden.
But the counties and towns and sub sub-districts
districts sub-districts for roads and schools are
nearly all in debt and paying out a
large amount every year t in interest
on their debts. Florida probably; has
a bonded debt of fifty million dollars
right now on its counties, etc., and is
it easier to pay a dollar on a state
debt than. on a county debt?
The Grower argues that if we r do
not vote on ourselves this twenty
million dollar a year amendment that
progress wil stop. How is it then
that progress has proceeded in Flor Florida
ida Florida for over forty, years ever since
the yoke of the carpetbagger was
taken off its neck ? How can a man
progress best with a moderate bur burden
den burden to steady his steps, or with a
crushing load of debt, forcing him to
the ground every furlong, only to be
scourged with the dragon -whip of
interest until he. rises to stagger
painfully onward? v i
Bonds and indebtedness for public
works are good things in their place.
But sometimes a good thing is too
much of a good thing and one of such
things is this twenty million dollar
perpetual bond amendment.

W. B. Young, for a number of years
judge of the Jacksonville circuit court,
and one of the most able men in the
'state, gives his reasons for opposing
the proposed amendment authorizing
the, legislature to issue twenty million
dollars in bonds for "building state
highways, in the following communi communication
cation communication in the Times-Union:
"Jacksonville, Aug. 13. 1920.
"Editor Times-Union: Those of us
who have lived over seventy-five
years, have learned that the people
now and then are seized with a craze
for certain improvements and do not
stop to consider, what will be the ulti ultimate
mate ultimate cost to them.'
- "Ifl the state where I was residing
fifty years ago," the people were wild
for railroads. Railroads are highly
improved highways, and are excellent
things, if their cost does not impov impoverish,
erish, impoverish, the community.
"In their desire for these improved
highways they caused a law to be en enacted,
acted, enacted, requiring the state to endorse
the bonds of such roads for a given
number of .thousands of dollars per
mile, and authorized ." counties and
towns, upon a vote of the people, to
subscribe for stock in the roads, and
pay for the' same by an issue of bonds.
"The railroad .enthusiasts convinced
the people that the roads would bring
increased prosperity and population,,
and that the earnings of the roads
would meet the payments on the en endorsed
dorsed endorsed bonds and the dividends -.on
the stock would meet the interest on
the county and town bonds issued.
"A number of roads were,-commenced,
built for twenty-five or thirty
miles, and when they could sell no
more endorsed bonds," they stopped,
and could not earn 'enough to meet
the interest on the bonds.
"The result was that the state
found itself liable as endorser of some
