THE NEWS-STAR VINDICATLD.
The expected has happeuned. The
Honorable John M. Parker, the
wetnurse father and mother of the
alleged Democratic Good Govern
ment League, has proved true to his
predilictions, and has "gone off'
with Teddy Roosevelt in his wild
and wooly scramble for office and
Many times during the State
campaign the News-Star made the
prediction that while the Honorable
John M. Parker umi iltt..vote the
Democratic ticket in the April State
election, he would be found outside
the Democratic ranks in the Novem
ber presidential election, and in his
announcement that he will support
Roosevelt in opposition to both the
regular nominee of the Republican
and Democratic conventions is in
line with our predictions.
It seems that the Honorable John
M. Parker is an alleged )enmocrat
when it serves his purpose to pose
as such before the people, but at
heart he appears to be a Repub
lican. He acknowledged that he
bolted the Democratic nominees in
certain elections and would prob
ably have done so in another in
stance but had not paid his poll
tax. This is the man who essayed
to lead and direct the Democrats of
Louisiana. This is the man who
posed as the savior of the State.
The News-Star said last fall and
winter that the Honorable John M.
Parker was not sincere in his pro
testations of fealty to the I)emocrat
ic party, and his action has verified
the assertions made at that time.
We also declared that we believed
the Honorable John M. Parker had
an idea that he could disrupt the
Democratic party in Louisiana, and
that we looked upon his leadership
as the entering wedge to such ac
tion. Roosevelt and others of the
same ilk have long sought to break
up the "Solid South," and it was
so maid that the Southern Com
mercial Congress, of which the
lHnorable John M. Parker was the
chief sponsor and president for sev
eral years, had that very object in
view. We are glad that the mask
has been torn off and that the lion
orable John M. Parker has gone
back to "eddy" and his henchmen.
We hope, too, that the Honorable
John M. Parker will stay in the
Republican ranks and not endeavor
to lead good and true Democrats.
The daily papers bring us the infor
mation that the conference committees
of the Senate and House have agreed on
the points of difference hetween the'
bodtie in regard to the Rivers and llar
boes Bill, including the appropriation of
$6,000,000 for the Mississippi river, and,
at this writing, that Bill has probably
The Bill provides that $4,000,000 of the
$6,000,000 shall be devoted exchsluively to
levee building and the Missiasippi River
Commisdon may devote the whole of it
to that purpose.
This is far and away the largest appro
priation ever made by tihe Federal gov
ernment for levees and is an indication
of the growing sentiment in Congree and
in the nation in favor of the national
goveroment taking complete nontrol of
Well may our distinguished friend,
Hon. Jo.. 8. Ranedell, be proud of this
crowning achievement of his usefiul and
hobarable career in the lower House of
Cogreses. In season and out of season
Mr. Ranadell had tirelemely labored in the
levee conseand he has aright to feel
gratified that as he is on the point of
leaving the lHouse for the Senate he seen
the fruition of his great work in the pres
ent Rivers and IIHarbors Bill.
And well may Mr. Ranzuell's grateful
eonstituency say to him, "Well done,
thoau good and faithful servant."

To thu l uter, of the Fifth Conlgressional District:
Born, and having resided all my

has been. elevated to the United
States Senate. And in this public
utterance I covenant with the peo
pie of the Fifth Congressional Dis
