net all one wwy by any means and between the two classes for and against with positive Uone is an equally large class that still wants to be and that didly eays it has not light enough to warrant taking a stand Among the Roscoe merchants there will be mostly opposition for the reason that a Main street bridge wonld divert travel away from their stores and lose them a large amount of trade they hold when Coshocton is isolated by high water Jn Coshocton itself there is ent a division of opinion those dis- posed to view the enterprise being many who are simply property owners or manufacturers and not di- interested in Coshocton trade conditions The Daily Times has many readers ror the proposed bond issue It also has many ers who will conscientiously oppose the scheme The paper itself will not undertake to sit as judge be- tween these two elements to con- demn the one and the other to a matter the Times es its duty to be to serve as a public forum in which the matter may be out before
