MEN'S CLUB MEETS AGAIN. Technical Matters of Highway Con- struction Discussed. New High- way Law. Explained. Relative Im- portance of Work of Town Supts. The meeting of town officers called by C. E. Putman, county superintend- ent of highways, was held at the court house Wednesday afternoon, with every town superintendent ex- cept one present, in addition to which there were twenty-live justices, a num- ber of supervisors and altogether an audience of over a hundred persons interested in highway work. Work of Four Years. This was the fourth annual meet- ing of the sort and in calling the meet- ing to order Mr. Putman reviewed the work of the past four years, show- ing that in addition to the 15 miles of slate highway that have been built, there have been built 165 miles of town macadam, not quite' so well grad- ed, perhaps, but as to construction and metal, the equal of the state roads. Mr. C. B. Perry, of Deposit, one of the district supervisors, was present and explained the provisions which the department of highways has recommended to the legislatuv, • and which are embodied in the measure which as passed the state senate. Provisions of New Law. The most important of these recom- mendations are that the state shall contribute $500 per mile to the con- struction of town macadam roads and make further contributions for town bridges and that the term of office of the town superintendents shall be in- creased from two to four years, with provision for removal upon charges, to be filed with the state department instead of the town board. It is also proposed to increase the compensa- tion of town superintendents, the min- imum to be .$3 per day with $5 as the maximum. Town System Praised. It was pointed out by thes peakers that.if the $180,000 which has been spoilt in Lewis county by the state for which the county has 15 miles of roads, .had been spent by town super- intendents for the macadam roads 'which 1 they are 'building, 'the \couritj' would have 120 miles of roads for the money instead of 15 miles. It was also shown that after the ex- penditure of the entire hundred mil- lion dollars, the town superintend- ents would still have more than 60,000 miles of roads to build as against some 12,000 miles which will have been built by the state. John Gyer, of Watertown, district supervisor in charge of this district, paid superintendent Putnam a high compliment, declaring that the Albany records showed him to be one of the most efficient county superintendents in the state. Mr. John Gick, of Sara- toga, another district supervisor, also spoke. The question box was one of the principal features of the meeting and most of the discussions hinged on the practical questions brought up by those present. PERSONALS. Henry S.
