There will be two elections to
be voted here next week, on Mon
day September 23rd will be the
election to vote a 3j mill tax for
ten years in favor of the Louisiana
Electric Railroad and Power Co.,
of Lafayette, La., to raise a bonus
This Company has deposited
with the Mayor, a bond of $750 as
a guaranty of good faith, with a
condition that this bond is valid
only when New Iberia. Lafayette
and Abboville have voted the tax,
Breaux Bridge having already
voted the tax.
On Thursday Sept. 26th., an.
other election will be held to vote
a tax of 5 mills for a term of ten
years to raise a bonus of $25.000
in favor of the Southwestern Trac
tion and Power Co., of New Iberia,
which Company is now operating
the eleotric railroad between New
Iberia and Jeanerette.
We are now placed in the em-.
barrassing position to know which
Company to vote for, we surely
want an electric railroad anid want
to make no mistake, and after go
ing over the situation in all its de.
tails, we believed the best solo
tion is to vote both taxes, we feel
that we will not get both roads,
when one will commence building
we ieel satisfied that the other
will abandon the project and the
town autboritie, can give the fran
chise to the Company that will
offer the best inducements and
guaranty of immediate building
and will not give a franchise that
will tie up the town for any spe
culative scheme in case that each
should prove the case as many of
our people seem to fear.
It is a matter, we consider of
great importance for St. Martin
ville and this entire section and
we would much prefer to vote both
taxes rather than lose this oppor
