representative Prank Limerick's
road bill was roundly denounced in
l)n)..inL 1- . . i
i.ait-Kll uriore me committee on
roads and turnpikes by Major W. C.
nfm last r riday afternoon. He de
clared that the bill was a duplicate
vi me present law with the exception
that it places road construction Into
the hands of the county commission
ers; that it was inspired bv personal
animus towards him. and that it does
iwt represent the wishes of the people
of I'nion county.
Appearing with Major Heath be
fore the committee was Hon. U. L.
Stevens. He. too. spoke against the
bill, his chief argument being that It
was not Justiee to legislate men out
i mure until alter the expiration of
tN ir terms. The terms or the pres
et members of the board of road
bt torate, he said, do not expire
: til Dep. 1!22.
Ma lor Heath was introduced to the
members of the committee by Mr.
Limerick as "one of the most patri
otic citizens of I'liiou rouniv during
the war." The Union county repre
si illative also declared the chairman
i uie roan commission to
his very closest friends.
Mr Limerick was the lone advo
cate of the measure. He raid that
the bill was endorsed by the people
! the county in u mass meeting held
in the court house here sevetal weeks
a.o. and (hat he believed It provided
lor a change that was acceptable to
a majority of his constitutents.
Major Heath, when he took the
floor, paid a tribute to Hon. Tatu
Fiuwie. the vtteran h.eiuhiin.. -v.,.
was chairman of the committee on
roads and turnpikes. Turning to
wards Mr. Limerick, he declared that
the bill was not in accord with the
expressions of those present at the
muss meeting "They voted in fa
vor or a township unit plan." he said.
mere mere isn't a d n chance
made In the present law except that
ii piaces road construction in the
na:.as or tne county commissioners,
ar.d provides for a remunerative sal
ary of the chairman of that board "
The bill, said the JIaJor. was a
s.il.terfuge. Its whole purpose is to
deceive, he declared. "The people
buck home," he continued, "are un
der the Impression that Mr. Llmeii-k
is passing a bill which will place
road construction back into the hands

.Major Heath this morning said
that he delivered a letter to Mr. Llm
,erlck from his colleague, Mr. Earl
Kzzell. which In effect, declared his
opposition to the road bill as Intro
