I have every confidence^ that eveh-. before that time the Franklin county, road will he finished and wlien that is donejall this part of Kansas will be on the good roads maps eve^-y- wHere." In this connection comes an interesting rumor' from Topeka that Governor Paulen probably .*lll ap- poiht .Mr. James A. Alleii of-Chanute as one 'of the six members of the State Highway Commission.
