The report. which as- dated, 1910,  is for the year- 1*90*,-.^at contains  much information relative to the  work done sincef the'enactment of  the Highway Improvement Act in  1001. This ,1aw, though, differing  in many respects from the state  aid laws of several commonwealths  in this country - is an application  of the" same principle. Its objects  as stated in. the report, are, "To en  courage a businesslike system of  road management, build a system  of main roads and create an object  lesson, in- management and construction for town3hip municipalities." It is- further stated that a  fourth object in view is "the (more  equitable, distribution, of cost  whereby, through the provincial  grant and, general .county tax, cities and towns ih some degree contribute to the cost."  The act appropriated $1,000,000  from the consol'dated revenue fund  of the* province; for the aid ,of the  counties availing themselves of it  in the prescribed manner.

The work of improvement is car-"  ried out under the direction of the  county council but subject to the1.  regulations of the department pf  .public works. 'These provide that  each county council shall appoint:  a capable superintendent or engineer to have direct charge of the  work in the county.
