TIllE TULLIE LINI.
The election hell ito Braux
Bridg-e Mondi in favor ,of the
Southwestern Traction and Power
Company, was cart isd by a unani
ruiins vote, which is a sure indlica
tiomi that the peoplte f this section
are in favor this lIie.
l'h-l next electionr will be in La
fayette ii a shoit time, where, we I
learn thereu will bI, sume ,op posi.
tion, but if Lafayette was to vote
agatant thils proposillun it wiuld
be pelrhaps better for us as Ar
naudvillle, Leoiville andl Opelou
sase, we ItIarII ale anxious to Kgt the
linle atn are ready to vote a tax in
favor of thisa line, and this, we be
Iitve wonil In us uch better for us
as it \unld iuln the entire length
of St. Martin parish and through
one of the finest sections of Lou
isiana.
W\ wulil Inu(ih prefer to see
the lini run to thoset places than
to Lafayette as it would be of
gisater beieftit to this entire seo
ton, anti we .-ven believe it would
be wise fit our people to take this
matter up aith the railroad Com
pany and with the people of the
townes menltlolied above. Our con
nection with New Iberia would
put us in close touch to the
Frico tand all trainb ou the S. P.
main line.
