There should be no question in the
minds of the voters of Welwter county
as to voting the bonds providing for
the building of bridges across tho Re
publican and other rivers and streams
in the county. It is a well authentic
ated fact that for the last eicht years
at least $45,000 have been spent in
repairing bridges, culverts, etc. In the
various precincts, which as fast as built
have been washed away and the peo
ple's money with them, all for the
simple reason that there have not
been substantial structures erected.
The chance is now open to stop this
enormous yearly expenditure by vot
ing bonds to build bridges over the
various streams that wilt stand for all
time to come. This matter should
not be looked upon as a precinct affair
but a well matured pian of the county
commissioners to stoo wasting county
funds on worthless bridges. The ques
tion of saving the county finance is a
matter that should interest everv voter
in Webster county and should not be
looked at from a parsimonious stand
point as only benefitting the ew.
when on the other hand the saving of
county funds benefits the entire peo
ple of the county more or less. The
idea of spending money on bridges
that fall down and are taken away
with every flood is too preposterous
flrfr any man to advocate who has the
wellfare of the county at heart. Good
substantial bridge should be built
over the streams of the county, and we
believe that it will be for the benefit
of all to vote for the bonds.
