othfT to the issuing of
such bonds, whether it be fourulhon
i j ri.
wiu investigate the situation serious-
Iy wil1 likewise opposed to it
It is erroneously stated, not only
by the press but generally, that the
legislature will have the power to ex expend
pend expend this money, and that Its expen expenditure
diture expenditure will be under that body, but
this is clearly a mistake, as the legis legislature,
lature, legislature, as it now stands, has already
made provision for the expenditure
of this and all other road money by
the state road commission.
This state road commission was
organized under chapter 6883 of the
laws of 1915, but never really became
a serious body until the act of 1917
amending, or re-enacting the law with
modifications, authorinzing the expen-
hat-'diture of state moneys" with the
moneys received from Congress for
such aid, and the body has been quite
a factor since the first of the year
be-!l918, when the state funds bezan
pouring in. It was the last cited act
rthat authorized the use of convicts on
the state roads and since that time,
or rather since the first of the year
1920 when the convict leases expired,
convicts have nspd n iho BfQf-
04U.70, and while I am not able to
state positively as to the work done
two persons who ought to know told
me in Tallahassee last week that with
the expenditure of this $2,073,540.75
and with the use of the state convicts
for ten months, they had built less
than one mile of road. Think of an
(expenditure as gigantic as this with
absolutely nothing accomplished. So
1 think it can be authoritatively stated
that the state road commission has
expended this sum of money without
a dollar of corresponding benefit to
the state. At this rate twenty million
dollars would not build ten miles of
road. t And where has this money
been spent? What has this honorable
commission to show for it? It is easily
answered, if you will investigate it;
the money has been expended in draw drawing
ing drawing maps, for hotel and traveling ex expenses
penses expenses of. the commission, who thru
the fault of the law getTio compensa compensation
tion compensation other than their expenses. The
state had better allowed them a sal salary
ary salary of $25,000 a year, and get a few
good men to run it, as they would
certainly have done more than expend
the money in this way. But as it is,
we have spent more than two million
dollars to" ferret out schemes (on pa
per) that are worthless.
Examine for a moment what they
did m Marion county (and I am re reliably
liably reliably informed that the same, has
taken place in many other counties).
They, dug up the shade trees on each
side of the road between Ocala and
Reddick, and dug huge ditches in their
place, but not a penny was expended
on the surface of the road, where it
was neded. These ditches have large
ly filled up with the heavy rains that
fell during the summer, and the em
barkments made on the sides of the
road are a nuisance to the traveling
public, and we need not expect an
other dollar spent in : this county
So our state railroad commission,
into whose hands it is proposed to
place this sum of twenty million dol dollars,
lars, dollars, has already provea its inability
or unworthiness, and it seems to me
that it would be the wildest and most
freakish tax the people of any state
ever voted on themselves; to give them
twenty million more to play with, for
this is all they have done. On this
basis it will cost us fifty billion dol
lars to build a common sand road from
the state line to Fort Myers! If they
cannot build one mile with two mill
j ion dollars, how far would twenty
million go with them? Therefore, with
only a few maps, receipted hotel and
traveling bills, and the recollection of
good times they have had on state
money, the state road commission
must make its report to the people at
the polls in November, and it is only
upon this can they consistently urge
the people to vote for the. amendment.
If the taxpayers of Florida wish to
perpetuate such a body, and eive
them more money, then a vote for the
amendment to the constitution an
thorizing the legislature to issue
bonds for road purposes is a step in
that direction. It is all nonsense to
say that we will have roads if we is issue
sue issue the bonds, for we won't have
enough roads out of that little twenty
million dollars to go to Silver
Springs, even if they spent every
dollar 01 it in Marion county.

informed us that" the fact that the

bearing on the dplay. If the bond
amendment carries, it is by no means
unlikely that Marion's bonds will
never be sold. This bond amendment
would at once double Marion's debt,
