JUDGE H. L MS
TELLS OF BONDS
The representatives of The Dully
i'ourler-Gazette nnd Tho Weekly
Democrat-Guzette are frequently ask-
ed: Why hasn't work begun on tho
good roads In Collin County? It will
be remembered thut In the Issue of
The Dully Courler-Gnisotte of Mon-
thly, April 27, there uppenred nn ar-
ticle from our llehl man In regurd
to this matter in which he stuted to
the public that the farmers who re-
side In these good roads districts
were exceedingly unxlous for the
work to begin, nnd wished to know
why It hud not already begun, und
what course the County Judge nnd
Commissioners were pursuing in the
A Courier-Gazette reporter visited
Judge H. L. Davis this morning, and
found him to be quite busy In his
court which is now in session, nnd
which Just ut the present demands
the greater purt of his attention.
Judge Davis und tho county commis-
sioners are nlso unxlous for work to
begin on the rouds.
Judge Davis had the following to
sny in regard to this mutter, which
will fully cxpluln to every one Just
why the work hus not commenced:
"I wish you would sny for myself
and the commissioners' court that the
court haa not been In any sense
Idle or negligent In the matter. In
the first place tho bonds could not
have been sold until their legality
was determined and approved by tho
Attorney General of Texas, which
was not until about two months ago,
speaking now of McKinney road dis-
trict bonds. Tho Celina and Farm-
ersvllle bonds were not approved un-
til about two or three weeks ago, and
the others have not yet been approv-
ed. but I am expecting every day to
receive notlco of their approval. We,
however, did not wait for their ap-
proval beforo wo advertised tho
bonds for snle but wo commenced In
a very short time ufter they were
"The commissioners' court hus hud
offers for the bonds and all tho bids
were less than par, but It would not
accept the same hecnusc to have
lone so would have been contrnry to
the law which provides that they
shall be by said court (commission-
ers' court) sold for cash, at not less
bun their pur vnlue, and wo would
not agree to do any act to ovado tho
plain provisions of tho law. Wo un-
derstand that bonds In somo other
counties luive been reported sold at
pur but In truth nnd fact were not
so sold, but commissions were allow-
ed certain bond brokers for produc-
ing the purchasers which In effect
wus selling the bonds at a discount.
"In the nggrcguto ono million dol-
lars of bonds have been voted In
Collin County. A commission of four
per cent on this sum would be 140,-
000. A commission of two per cent
would be 120,000. I do not bcllevo
thiil we should evade In nny such way
the plain provision of the law and
do In un Indirect wuy what we can
not legally do directly,
"The commissioners' court Is very
anxious to sell these bonds and com-
mence work on tho roads nnd to that
end Is actively pushing tho snlo of
our bonds. Wo hnvo somo negotia-
tions now on foot through which wo
hope In a short time to effect a sale
