The election held. here Monday, submitting'to the votets of the town the proposition of a 4_mill tax for ten years to aid in the building of a railrood from Eunice to Abbeville by way of Lafayette, resulted largely in favor of the tax. One hundred and fifty-one votes cast with 140 cast for the railroad tax, representing taxable property valuation of $286,848; one vote was cast against representing $2,000 worth of property. A great many voters who favored the tax were denied the privilege of voting on account of failure to register. A similar election was held in the Fourth ward of the parish. In the Fourth ward the tax carried easy by a vote of 85 for and one against. Property value $76,480 for tax, and $240 against, this should ensure the building of the road. Favorable expressions are heard on every side for the new road, and the day that the first train reaches Abbeville over this road is looked forward to with absorbing interest. Birthday Party.
