The following from the Morehouse Clarion shows conclusively that the ,eople af that parish are in earnest in their efforts to procure the North and South railroad and we hope that the people of this parish will do likewise : The requisite number of petitioners to the Police Jury for an election on the railroad tax will be secured this week. We hope now the President of that body will deem it proper to call a special meeting of the Police Jury who will give the people of Morebouse an opportunity to show their hands in this all-important matter. President Ford is an ardent advocate of the railroad project and we know he will Act judi. ciously in the premies.An enormous list of tax-payers are asking for the election Gentlemen of the Police Jury.
