returned to Bogalusa Sunday ac

Bennie of Nashville Tenn. Few of P

knew when he left Bogalusa a few
days ago that he had any idea of b
becoming a benidict. The marriage
was solomized at the home of the
brides parents in Nashville last I
Thursday, the wedding being a quiet
home affair. The bride is one of
Nashville's most popular society
ladies and it is needless to say she
,receives a warm welcome here.
After a short honeymoon the couple
arrived in Bogalusa and are making
their home at the Pine Tree Inn
where they are receiving the con
gratulations of their many friends.

Says-The Proposition Is Ip wil
I o1 The Voters-Election in
Aug. 31 is
A wuy has now been made for an
Washington Parish to pay up her prt
indebtedness, the special session of
the Legislature passed the act
authorizing Police Juries to set
aside 2 1-2 mills per annum. for the he
purpose of paying indebtedness in
curred prior to May 1915.
The Police Jury of this Parish
are unable to do this at this time
because there is not enough money
received above actual running ex
penses of the Parish There is but
one way to overcome this situation
and that is to vote a special tax of
1 1-2 (one and one half mills) for
bridges. if this were done the
amount now used from the general
fund for bridges (five thousand dol
lars) could be applied on our in
If the people of the Parish vote N
favorably on such a tax on Aug. 31; o0
the money collected from the tax
would lawfully be used for no other
purpose, the 2 1-2 mills (two and I
one half mills) would be set aside bi
each year to apply on our indebted
ness and could be used for no other
The election called to vote 'on B
the proqosition was set for August
131st., because that is the date set
"to vote on the Constitutional Con-' e
I vention and there will be no ex- e:
- pense incurred to hold the election
e for the special tax.
By taking advantage of this
e method of paying the indebtedness
each tax payer would scarcely feel
the increase and we would have
twenty five years to pay it in. To 1
Ia man paying $12 last year the in- d
crease would only be about 75 cents
e per year
When I accepted the office of t
Police Juror last February I was re
quested to try to arrange to care
for this indebtedness, by many of
the business men of the Parish, II
d have shown the only way that I be
s lieve can be pursued and the mat
1s ter is now up to the voters of the
Parish, if they do not vote favora
a bly on the proposition I shall feel
e, that the blame rests entirely with
y them, but I am quite certain that
- the tax payers generally want to
d see the debts paid. While circulat
:h ing the petition asking the Police
at Jury to call a special election, I
y, visited about two hundred and fifty
h- of the leading men of the Parish
r, and over 95 percent of them signed
n. the petition and all but two or three
s, promised to work among their
. friends in favor of voting the one
r and one half mill tax for bridges.
I shall be pleased to explain any,
paints that are not clear to anyone.
Yours very truly,
F. L. Sanford.
