None of I lie projects is in Mississippi county, nor, :w our i-u.'idei's will recall, has there beni any slntc road construction work of real cnnsi 1 - (|iiencc in this county sinri: enactment of. llic Martineui] law, mulcr which many millions have liccn spent in giving Ark:m-iiij ;'. moileni I'oad system. Probably ll;ere is no good reason lo complain about (hat. The main highways of Mississippi county were paved before I lie Martineau act wns passed, and under llial act the staie iigreed to meet interest charges and retire the bonds that were i.-sucd to finance their construction. Other counties were to got new roads and we were lu be relieved of the debt incurred in -building our roads. That was the bargain and it seemed a fair one. It wns a fair bargain but il has not yet been fulfilled. And there is a danger thai insofar as our local road'dchl is concerned il will nol be. Governor Futrcll is standing firm in his insisl- encc that highway improvement dis- tricl obligations which became Ihe moral obligation of the state under the Jlartineau law must be placed on the '• same basis as direct slate highway obligations, but as yet he has been unable to roach ar, agreement wilh the bondholders. In the meantime the old improvement distinct debts still stand as liens against lands in this and other counties. And yesterday holders of I'nlaski county road improvement bonds filed suit lo pul Ihe mail improvement district taxes back on the land. If that action succeeds similar suits will no doubt be filed in this county and elsewhere. No properly owner needs to be told what return of (be road lax would menu.
