a nis law was passed xj me last .legis
lature, and applies only to Mecklen
burg and two other counties. The chief
pointaf difference between it and the
old Tawiare.Jbaiefly) tbat.it requires the
townships to be divided into road dis
tricts; provides for the appointment
of supervisors of all the roads in .j;he
districts: empowers the board or coun
ty commissioners to impose a special
tax for the maintenance of the roads
and bridges; allows the commissioners
to administer an oath to supervisors
and to punish them for a failure to dis
charge : their, .duties with a fine not ex
ceeding $20; and, finally, requires every
male citizen of the county to work the
road four days in the year, or, to pay
for a hand to take his place. ,
The board fixed the tax for the main
tenance of the roads and bridges at one
J A. ill A1 4k. nA . 11
ana one-quaixer muis on tne$iuu worm
of property, the one mill tax to be de
voted to the roads and the quarter mill
tax to be. used in, reparing and building
bridges. The revenue derived from this
tax will be about $6,500.
It iadesignedthat this' fund shall be
dev&tedtothe purchase 'of tools, rock,
etc. ; a portion of it will be required to
pay the supervisors, who receive a com
pensation of $2 per day for every, day
they work, except the four days they
owe to the county, under the provis
ons of the law, as citizens thereof. ;
