H. Blackwood, chairman of ihs highway commission, In an Interview here today. Mr. Blackwood stated (hat under the law the stale was forced to buy up any highway district bonds covered by thc Martineau act that were offered It, and that if more of the North Heights bonds were purchased than, of other improve-, ment districts It 'was simply because more were offered, and nol because of Justin Matthews' connection with the districts, as charged by Hays. By the provisions of an act of thc 1929 legislature, Blackwood declared, $800,000.'was set aside annually to take, up any bonds lhat were ottered at par. of any road district that was payable under Ihe provisions of the Marllneau road aw. By taking up oonds of districts the state VI only saves n arge sum In interest on the bonds which they would ulturu/cly pay off anyway, but the .4tate also I' protecting^ its bond market, the ximmlssloner declared. Holders of bonds of a number of the improvement district*''were slttjjttcal-j; their investments and were offering them on the. market at discounts. In order to protect the market of state highway bonds Ihe legislature passed the act allowing'an appropriation to take-up bonds of any Improvement district offered at par. • ; More Pulaski Bonds O fit red The North Heights' districts were not favored in the taking up of Improvement bonds, . Blackwood pointed out, but more of those district's bonds were offered at par than of other Improvement districts.-Bonds of Mississippi county Improvement dlstrlcls, valued at approximately $35,000. offered at par, were taken up by the highway department as well os a number of bonds of other districts. Bond holders of districts in Pulaski coun- ly became timid because of adverse publicity about the districts In the 1928 campaign and consequently more ol their bonds were- offered at par and taken over than any others, the commissioner declared. In a statement Issued today Blackwood answered the charge of favoritism for certain districts made, by Brooks Hays: 'The highway department nas nolhlng to da with whai bonds are paid off: In fact thus question rests solely with the holders of the bonds. Under thc provisions of this bill, any bonds offered lo the stat\ treasurer through Ihe regular paying agent can be paid off so long as funds arc available.
