  2.  The question shall be submitted in substantially the following form:

Shall there be a one-fifth mill tax on the firemen's pension fund?

  3.  If the majority of all the votes cast in such city upon such proposition for or against a one-fifth mill tax for the firemen's pension fund shall be for the tax, the tax specified in such notice shall be levied and collected in like manner with the other general taxes of said city, and the proceeds of said tax shall be known as "the firemen's pension fund"; provided, that such tax shall cease in case the voters of such city shall so determine by a majority vote at any election held therein; provided further, however, that when a majority of the voters of such city shall have voted for a one-fifth mill tax for the firemen's pension fund, the authorities, officials or representatives of the city whose duty it shall be to fix the tax rate for such city shall have the tax for the firemen's pension fund at the rate specified in consideration in fixing the tax rate, and shall so fix said rate that with and including such tax for the firemen's pension fund the constitutional limitation upon the taxing power of such city shall not be exceeded.
