Accomac Court-House, Va. -? ?g? ? Saturday, November28,1891. Entered at the Postoffiee at Aeeoinac C. H., Va., as second-class matter. An article of Senator Blackstone in this issue merits the attention of all interested in the improvement of our roads. The Senator is right in say? ing, that "it is expecting too much of the members of the Legislature, to think that they can draft a road law to give satisfaction to the people of the county when the only sutrsroFtion made is a change." He is right, too, in suggesting that the people meet to find out what they want, and his call for the officials to he present, is, too, equally correct?but to that list we would suggest that the names of the Senator and our other representa? tives be also added. Indeed, as rep? resentatives of the people, we suggest that it is their duty, perhaps, to be present at such meeting, to hear the suggestions tobe made for a road law, to participate in its deliberations, to assist in drafting their resolutions,...

tmmi ?rptisc. accom ac court-housk, Va. Saturday, December 12, isni. Entered at the Postoffioo at Aecomac C. II., Va., as second-class matter. Hon. Charles P. Crisp, of Georgia, was nominated as Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives, on the thirtieth ballot, last Monday. ? The road convention which meets here next Wednesday, it is to be hoped, will be well attended by dele? gates from every section of the coun? ty. It is a question which calls for thoughtful and intelligent considera? tion, if we would secure a road law adequate to our needs and which will not impose upon us greater burdens than we are able to bear. That a change in our road law is needed no one will question, but it is equally true that it is better that it should remain as it is. rather than the wild and visionary schemes of some should prevail. To frame a road law, which, while not conforming to the narrow minded views of some, will at the same time place restraints upon the visionary schemes of others, i...

One featxire, at least, ap? pears to be so objectionable, that hardly a doubt exists that it would be defeated if submitted to a popular vote,to wit, the clause requiring four days' labor or a tax of two dollars on all male persons over IS and under CO years That clause modified on the other hand in accordance with the popular demand, creates a deficiency in the road revenues, and the ques? tion then recurs, can property boar further taxation?
