Railrod Tax – A petition is being circulated among the voters and tax payers of Farmerville asking the town council to order an election to get the sense of the property holders of Farmerville relative to levying a tax of five mills for ten years in aid of our contemplated railroad.

All of our people recognize that method as the fairest way in which to raise a bonus for the railroad enterprise, as every property holder will then be made to share the burden in proportion to his holdings.
