The state will sell $20,000,00$ next monday. Of this amount $$�-125, will be Highway Bonds authorized by the 1923 general Assolin Bly a too too More will be asked for the schools but these were authorized by the 192&general Assembly. There will be another $5,000,-000 for highways which the 10t5 Assembly caned tor. And $3,000,00$ will be sold to replace the $5,000,-000 notes issued tor permanent inn prove ments by the legislature of 1923. Thus it will be seen that the state is still Selling paper which it ordered in 1923. I Here is $10,000,000 of that. The state has kept its Bond off the Market and in doing so has been Able to Trade Well but to that time there had been no count lending. The state had taken Over Many stretches of roads and maintained them but counties had paid for them. There has been no Wesalo dealing in county Loans. Good business men declare that these must cripple the state s credit in time mad commissioner John Sprunt Hill of Durham first tested the act under which these county Loans Are approved. Or. Hill carried the attorney general with him and he now appears to have the state but the Law is unamended. Governor Mclean has been quoted As disapproving More county Loans but the Highway commission has not heard any recommendations that he will make. Perhaps the result of the Bond lain monday will determine future course As to county Loans. But the state expects to sell its Bonds. It places i Hopes in governor Mclean who has kept the Bonds off the Market and hurried North Carolina paper As Little As possible. The buyers like his budget and the evident purpose of the state to live within its income. It did not care so much about that when the state was $20,000,000 in debt for Bonds but it does care now and it likes the Mclean Way. President c. P. Barringer has joined president r. W. H.
