FOR MEADOWS BONDS
Township Commissioners Re
ceive Bids From Several
ALL WANT 6 PER CENT.
tieo. Lewis, One of the Meadows
Commissioners, In Favor of
Making: Six Per Cent. Rate
—Thinks Work Should
Now Be Postponed Un
til Spring Much
Tobacco Still Out.
Mr. Geo. Lewis, of German
ton Route i, was her a on busi
ness Tuesday. Mr. Lewis, who
is one of the Meadows township
road commissioners, informs the
Reporter that a number offers
have been received from bond
buyers offering to take the
Meadows bonds, but that ail
want six per cent. Mr. Lewis
is of the opinion that the bonds
in the first place should have
been made to bear six per cent,
and that they should now be
changed to that end. While Mr.
Lewis is of the opinion that the
bonds should be sold as early as
possible, he does not think it
advisable to undertake to build
roads until after the severe
weather of the winter has passed,
and that the operations during
the fall and winter should be
confined to securing proper sur
veys, etc., for the correct lo
cation of the roads.
Mr. Lewis says that the late
storms of wind, hail and rain,
together with the horn worm 3,
wrought immense damage to
the tobacco crop in his section, j
and that it is an unusually sorry
crop as a result. A large pro
porportion of the crop is yet
uncut in his neighborhood,
though it will be taken in largely
this week. All farmers who!
have been to market are well
pleased with the prices.
