Stopped Working the Roads.
A citizen here this week from
Peter's Creek says that there is
a strong sentiment in that sec
tion against working the roads
by free labor any more, and that
many persons declare that they
will never work any more with
out pay, and will contest the
matter in the courts. They deny
the right of any one to force
them. One overseer returned
his road order, flatly refusing to
serve. This report comes from
all over county. There are many
roads in the county that have
not been worked in twelve
months, while some have not
been touched for years.
Free labor has had its day.

j John G. Vulton Calls Alien-j
tion to a Very Important
Point In Reference to Good
Roads Bond Issue.
I Editors Reporter :
Since the act making it pos
sible for the citizen* of our
township (Sauratown) to cho-e
■ between good roads or the pres
ent system of no roads at all
has been passed by the General
Assembly of our State it now
becomes the duty of very citi
zen to begin thinking over the
situation with an eye to advanc
ing the general interest of the
c >mmunity. All will acknowledge
that a po>d road v\i 1 add
much to the material growth of
■ our county. No one will make
a claim that g-.«>d roads are nor
much to be preferred. For my!
part I have a very simple prop-;
. osition to put to the citizens of i
Sauratown township; those
them who reside in the country; ;
I landlords and tenants alike. All
| such citizens know that the
citizens of Walnut Cove have
I I never contributed a cent towards
' the up-keep of our roads and
> that our citizens in this little
- Burg are not liable for road
'duty. They know also that the
' non-residents of this township
pay not a cent for the up-keep
|of the miles of road that go
" through and by the broad acres
■ i they possess. Further, they
i know that we get but little, such
■ a little indeed, that it is of no
• ; noticeable consequence from the
t two railroads that traverse
■' the southern border of the town-
I ship. Now my proposition :
3 If you good people in the
country will submit to it and go
right on and vote for the law,
(we agreeing to help you with
our votes) the three factors:
The citizens of Walnut Cove
who are doing nothing for road?,
' the miles of railroad track and
j the land owners of the township
who reside entirely out of the
county, will be compelled to
| pay from half to two thirds of
the bonded indebtedness. This
! is a fact.
The argument that I don't
. want to vote a debt on my
children is not at all significant.
| What will the average son's tax
j amount to as compared to six
i days' hard labor on the public
, roads. This law if ratified at
I the polls eliminates free labor.
I I The thing that looms up be
' fore mv vision overshadowing
every other consideration is the
:, fact of its ratification meaning
good roads. Make good roads
' i the slogan, work for good roads,
[ I talk for good roads, vote for
2 I good roads and the pleasure
f i will be ours in using good roads.
3 One more idea in conclusion: you
good citizens who pay no tax
3 1 except a poll tax, don't you be
1 j led to believe that this change
f1 of front in road system will
J i work any hardship on you. It's
1 the opposite. It places the
obligation largely where it be-
I longs: on the railroad property
: owners and the land owners.
] Citizens of Sauratown, take
j the case.
