New Mayor and Aldermen for Farmerville

The Gazette
May 4, 1898

The newly appointed mayor and aldermen for the town of Farmerville qualified Monday. The election tickets failed to arrive in time to hold an election, and so a petition was forwarded to Gov. Foster asking that the members of the old board be appointed to fill their respective positions, which was down. The town officers are: W. P. Chandler, mayor; R Haas, C. H. Jameson, D. Stein and W. J. Turnage, alderman. The old board deserve credit for their economical and satisfactory managements of the corporation’s affairs during the past year. By doing away with a town marshal, which has been for many years a useless officer, the city was saved about $400, and in consequence the corporation debt is very materially decreased. Another year of such management will put the town out of debt.
