Letters To The
MORE HIGHWAY FACTS
Editor The Mountaineer:
We have noticed in the papers of
the state, what State Senator
James S. Howell, of Buncombe
county has had to say relative to
E. L. McKee, a member of the
State Highway and Public Works
Commission. Building a ribbon of
concrete from Sylva to his High
Hampton Hotel, at Cashiers, a dis
tance of 35 miles; and neglecting
certain roads and bridges in Bun-
is rarely worth the effort, and may
hurt where least expectes,
"Pay no attention to ill-natured
remarks about you. Simply live
so that nobody believes them. Dis
ordered nerves and bad digestion
are common causes of back-biting.
"Don't be too anxious about get
ting your just dues. Do your work,
be patient, keep your disposition
sweet, forget self , and you will be
respected and rewarded." San

We are in favor of building nee
essary and proper roads in any
county in North Carolina, and
think that they should be built
for the benefit of the traveling pub
lie generally, not for Jackson or
Buncombe county, but to accommo
date the traveling public between
Maine and Miami and between Can
ada and Mexico, and not for the
purpose of advancing and prompt
ing the interest of any one man
or his business associates.
Senator Howell seems to have
not observed the several other roads
and bridges recently built by High
way Commissioner McKee. We
are informed that he caused to be
relocated U. S. Highway Nos. 19
and 23 between Sylva and Dillsboro.
at a cost of more than fi 100,000.00,
cutting through two mountains and
building a bridge that cost more
than $50,000.00, said relocation
along the side of or on the Dills
estate of which his wife is a one
third owner. We are in like man
ner informed that he caused an
expensive bridge to be built across
the Tuckaseigee River at Dillsboro
leading a State and Federal
Highway into and over cer
tain lands, business lots, and
the residence of the Dills
tate oi whicn his wife is a one
third owner, and that the road
leading off of the bridge at South
end makes a sharp curve at almost
right angles a thing that both State
and Federal authorities have been
trying to avoid for fifteen years.
And we are informed that Mr,
McKee is having engineers relO'
cate U. S. Highway No. 23, leading
South from Sylva through Webster
township passing through or by an
other farm owned by him and also
another farm owned by the Dills
estate just East of Webster, and
also through a farm owned by his
sister near Webster, and by and
through two farms owned by the
Sylva Supply Co., of which we are
informed he is a one-third owner,
That Commission McKee is now
promoting the relocation of more
than a mile of highway in and just
East of Sylva, changing old No,
10, now U. S. Highway Nos. 19 and
23, thereby taking traffic and high
ways from a number of businesses
permananently established at great
cost to the owners; and in said re
location lengthens the distance to
be traveled by the public, puts in
two railroad grade crossing, and
adds 2 new concrete bridges across
Scott8 Creek, and we are informed
that he, his relatives, and associates
own at least one-third of the prop
erty on this new proposed reloca
tion, and that contracts are being
made for the erection of filling sta
tions and other businesses on said
new proposed highway, the build'
mg of which has been and is being
held up by the citizens in the com'
mumty who have filed protests
with the btate Highway Com mis
sion at Raleigh.
And we hope that the State High
way Commission will go into the
matter of grade crossings and other
hazards on said proposed route be-
I fore wasting the taxpayers money
to increase Hazards on these U. S.
