The Caddo Herald
July 28, 1911
The Board of Trustees met Wednesday night attended to some unfinished business and passed three ordinances which are published in this issue.
One provided a tax on autos operated for hire; to resident auto owners the tax is nominal, while to transients the tax is $100 a year, or prohibitive. This is made necessary by foreign cars coming here during carnival time and operating in competition to home cars. The home cars stay here, pay taxes all the year, and buy their supplies here and are entitled to protection.
This protection policy might with profit be applied to other lines of business and The Herald commends this action of the board.
Another ordinance relates to the size of advertising signs and is needed legislation.
The third ordinance relates to a definition of fighting.
