Tuesday. July II, 1916
I'lie carting of coal which
formed the cargo of some of
the vessels that have visited
our port, has had the effect
of darkening down the thor-
mghfares through which tbe
carts have passed. With all
due deference to the opinion -
of those who cpnsidei our
white roads one .if the beau
ties and attractions of Nas-
sau, we think that this has
been a decided improvement,
itj'ias had the effect of
softening down ihe in toll i
able glare of the white sun-
baked streets.
Whether our white streets
are really an advantage is a
moot point. In winter they
are dusty and that fact, cou-
pled with the glare, seems to
L he one of the greatest i auses
of complaint on the part of
our visitor-.
In our opinion one" of the
best and most economical
methods of road ke ping is
that of tar spraying. It maki s
a reallv good surface that
wears well and is com para
tively free from dust, and in
the rainy season is less liable
to damage by abrasion.
Roads treated with tar at re
gular intervals need far Irss
ll the Streets within the
City boundaries, therefore,
were thus treated, and the
treatment was kept up at re
gulai intervals, we venture
to think that even hardened
sceptics would soon be
brought to see the benefits
accruing from the innovation
Visitors who really desire
white roads could have them
by taking a drive to tbe out-
lying districts, and the busi
ness people ol the City who
now have to suffer from the
intolerable dust nuisant e,
would find that their i rouble
has all but vanished.
