CLI WOMEN VOTE1 so
Yes! The ensuing election in this is
:pariashon 80th inst., is a non-political
.election. The Act, No. 35 of 1t86t,
permits all property tax payer-
without regard to sex-the right of PI
voting. The object of the law is to bi
obtain the sen ie of the tax payers on
the que~tiomof wth' :her their proper- is
,ly shall Ie taxed or not. fil
The law requires a "majority in bi
:numbers and in value of the propelty hi
tax payers" of the parish to be in
favor of said tax before the same can
adulies, who own prqperty and who tic
flgure.on the tax rolls, not only have PI
the right to vote, but it is their duty Is.
.to do so. ye
There must be a majority in num- eil
ber and value in favor of tihe levy- Ti
those whu are in favor of seeing our at
parish supplied with another road
:and fail to cast their ballots in favor er
of the. aid, really and in fact vote lei
.against progress. tel
There has never been a period when Al
the women were behind in building to
•up the resources ofaeountry, and it is
believed by the advocates of this great sa
enterprise that they will not stand idly n
by and have their property weighed in lai
the scale against progress and im- In
.provement, when by the simple act of O't
going;to the polls they can vote In
favor of it.
It is stated that many ladies who J.
,own property are in favor of the rail W
;road but are averse to going to the
polls, and Inquired if there is no other S.
way by which their property can be
.connted In favor of the road. There Ca
Is none. The ladies must vote forthe
road or their property will be count- A.
ed against it.
A LAW UNTO THEMlELVEIS.
We quote the following from the A.
report of the Grand Jury of East Ph
Carroll Parish. at the last session of
the )Distrlet Court:
"We had a large numberofeases pre.
sented to us against persons for riding of
and dlving on the public levees, and
;:ne-teuths of said cases were against of
our most ignorant citizens: many of A*
whom, we are satisfied, did not know
of the existence of this law until arres- Pa
ted by the levee guard. For this rea
ason and for the further reason, that the
public roads of the parish are impassa
'ble in many plces, and becauae the
Police Jury of the parish has been so ref
remiss in the matterof fixing our roads
we hbye ot indicted any person for fre
.breaking the levee law,
We respectfully call the attention of
bsr lion. Police Jury to the present
bad condition of our roads; many of
;which are impassable after every big Or
rain, and urge upon them the import
ce ,of action therein as soon as poses
The law making riding, driving or
hauling on the public levees reads as
