BREVARD, N. C. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1923
RALEIGH, N. C., January 29.
The bill bearing the names of Dough
ton, Connor, Bowie and Moore, en
titled: "An act providing for the con
struction and maintenance of a state
system of hard-suurf acc and other de
pendable roads," has passed the
House exactly as it was written. On
the final roll call two republicans and
five democrats voted in the negative.
The bill carries an additional issue of
fifteen million dollars of bonds and
contains a provision advancing the
tax on gasoline from one to three
cents per gallon.
Three amendments were offered to
the bill on its final reading. Burgwyn
of Northampton, who vigorously op
posed the highway bill in the Senate
two years ago, wanted to amend this
one by giving the first district an ad
ditional appropriation of $1,000,000.
Quickol of Lincoln proposed to amend
by providing that the entire fund be
distributed by counties on the ratio
of their' contribution to the income
of the Highway Commission, and
Coward of Jackson offered an amend
ment providing that an equalization 1 town and county and the "Teat pro
fund of $3,000,000 be set up to help rrisive state of North C arolina. In
needy districts. These amendments tendy proud of North Carolina's mil-
