Saturday March 4, 1911. The Board of supervisors of acco Mae meet next monday and the following is presented for their consideration a the Board of supervisors of Augusta county monday considered the question of holding an election to Bond the county for $1,000,000 for roads. The Board directed petitions to be circulated announcing that an election will be called if a considerable number of substantial men sign it. Asking for an the supervisors of Accomac we believe will make no mistake in acting upon the information contained in the above item of news from the Baltimore Sun. The initiative in every movement for the betterment of our condition must be taken by some one and the article is suggestive that it is the right and perhaps the duty of our supervisors As the Legal representatives of the people to take the step which will put it. Up to them to say whether or not they want better roads and Are willing to Bond the county in a sufficient sum to secure them. The Board of supervisors in fact in authorizing the circulation of petitions a announcing that an election will be called if a considerable number of substantial men sign it a assumes no responsibility other than putting the machinery in motion As it were to up an expression of the will of the people. The demand for better roads and the willingness of the people to incur the necessary expense for them indeed we believe is too Universal for our supervisors to refuse to act upon the suggestion presented to them by the Board of Augusta county. They will at least make no mistake in having the petitions circulated As upon their return it will be with them to say whether or not the demand is sufficient to justify them in calling an election nor for that matter could they be blamed even if an election is held upon their own motion As the people and not the supervisors would be responsible for the result. Other counties in the state have issued Bonds for the improvement of the roads in sums from $250,000 to $750,000, Wise county one of the smallest in the state for the latter amount and surely Accomac said to be the richest in the United states can afford to put up the much smaller amount which it is estimated is needed in a level county like ours than in a Mountain District. Good roads mean a saving in vehicles decrease in the Cost of the transportation of our produce to Market increase in the value of our lands Progress in every line of business. Surely we would not be lacking alike in the progressive spirit and Good business judgment of the citizens of other counties of the state.

Daniel is so intimately linked with the history of Virginia that a tribute to Ltd one necessarily includes the other. This View was taken by senator Lodge of Massachusetts in a recent address on the life of Daniel an extract from which appears below. As the virginian Pilot says a it will repay perusal for Noble sentiment and lofty language have Seldom been More felicitous by joined than in the following sentence a the civil War brought Many tragedies to North and South alike. None or Fater certainly than the division of Virginia. To a state with such a history with such memories and such traditions there was a Peculiar cruelty in Suc Fate. Virginia alone among the states has so suffered. Other wounds have healed. The land that was rent in Twain is one again. The old enmities have grown cold the old friendships and affect 3ns Are once More warm and Strong As they were at the beginning. But the wound which the War dealt to Virginia can never be healed. There and there it alone the past can not be restored. One bows to the inevitable but As a Lover of my country s past i have Felt a deep Pride in the history of Virginia in which i As an american had a right to share and i have always borrowed that an inexorable destiny had severed that land where so Many Brave and shining memories were garnered up. That thought was often in my mind As i looked at senator Daniel in this Cham Ber. Not Only did he fitly and highly represent the great past with All its memories and traditions but he also represented the tragedy As great As the history which had fallen upon Virginia to the cause in which she believed and to which in her Dev prion she had Given her All even a part of herself the maimed Soldier with scars which commanded the admiration of the world finely typified his great state in her sorrows and her losses As in her glories and har Pride.
