For many weeks the public highway from here to Montgomery was agitated in a lively manner, some wanting the road to go on the upper route, that is by the way of Thompson, Fitzpatrick, and Mitchell, and others preferring the lower route, by Shopton. After two or more hearings, the State Board rendered a decision in favor of the upper route, pleading economy as the deciding factor. A plea for a rehearing was granted Monday of this week, at which time a large number of representative citizens from this county went to Montgomery, and laid their arguments before the Board. A decision has not yet been rendered.
