anything were needed to r,
strate the absurdity of n
charge that Jastremski and e
Sshouters have circulated ti
ghout the State that Blan- n
rd stands for boss rule while t
Tretaki stands for the peo- b
Se, that evidence was given on b
-S'aturday, .when Messrs. Par- t'
kerson, Fenner and. Buck spoke t,
in support of Judge Blanchard's h
" candidacy at Shreveport. If t
• there are three men in New Or- n
leans who have stood out more t
conspicuously and more consis- d
tently against boss rule than
these three gentlemen, their .
names are not known to the pub- c
Neither of the three gentle- c
men who addressed the demo- t
crats of Shreveport in the inter
estof Judge Blanchard is a par
tisan, an office holder, nor so far
as we are aware, an oflice
seeker. They are gentlemern
distinguished in their respec
tive spheres of action, men of I
ability and of personal and pro
fessional standiag, nor have
they any desire for public office, 1
nor any personal interest, be
yond that of all good citizens, in
the success of any candidate.
And yet these gentlemen saw in
the fight being made upon J3 udge
Blanchard a reason sufficient to
justify them in going to Shreve
port to correct the erroneous
and made-to-order slogan which
has been the chief issue in Gen
eral Jastremski's campaign.
They hailed from New Orleans,
which Jastremshi has repre
sented as being in the throes of
a great fight in which the people
on one side were struggling des
perately to be released from the
tyranny of bossism, they went
as men who have c-nsistentiy 1
fought the bsscs, and they clo
quently advocated the election of
the man whom the Jastremski
shouters have falsely declared
stands as the representative of
These leaders of the anti-boss
movements in past campaigns
declared that it is not true that
the fight is between the bosses
on one hand and the people on
the other; that this fake issue
has been concocted by the oppo
sition to Judge Blanchard in or
der to deceive the people of the
country parishes and to excite
factitious opposition to him, and
that so far from that being true
nearly all the men prominently
identified with the movements
against the bosses in the past
are ardently supporting Judge
Blanchard now. Discussing
these things some of the Shreve
port speakers stated some very
plain facts. For instance, MIr.
Parkerson is reported as follows:
"The bosses of New Orleans
nor any other set of bosses could
control the votes of the men who
were behind Judge Blanchard.
They embraced representatives
of the best elements of New Or
leans citizenship. The speaker
had been fighting the bosses bor
years. He had fought them in
1888. WVhere was General Jas
tremski then. He had fought
them in 1000; and 19u02. WVhere
was Gene-ral Jastremski then?"
SThe answers to these ques
tions may embarass Candidate
Jastremski somewhat, for as a
matter of fact while ŽMr. Parker
sonwasfightingbosses Candidate I
Jastremski was cheek by jwl
with them, fighting for them,
eulogizing them, and holding
public positions almost conti
nuously. It will be noticed that
in all his speeches Jastremski
never refers to these things.
The Blanchard orators and the
Blanchard press have shot Jas
tremski's pretensions of antag
onism to the bosses full of holes:
they have exposed Ihis hypocriisy
and have answered his present
attacks upon the bosses with his
own words of eulogy of them, ut
tered when he was holding office
by their influence and before he
turned State's evidence against
his former comrades, Jastrem
ski never attempts to answer
Sthem. His silence upon the sub
Sject, while unquestionably a con
fession of guilt, is, nevertheless,
the very best thing he could do.
I;: He can not impeach the record
-:hehas made, but he is doing
w hat no man in history, so far as
Swei have ever heard or read, has
e and that is, asking the
le to repudjate his past and
unish him by electing him to
- highest office within their
respect the attitude of
Jastremski is aeton
isbhig in its audacity. Coming
before the people with a record
reeking with everything that he
now denounces as vicious, intol- t:
erable and corrupt, he affronts c
the intelligence of the honest o
manhood of Louisiana by asking t
them, in one and the same
breath, to condemn his record
but to reward the man who made t
that record, with the supreme f
token of their confidence and C
honor. Such a spectacle of ob- d
tusity in political morals has 1
never before been presented to
the contemplation of the honest
democracy of any State or peo
ple, and to imagine that it can I
win is to assume that the dem
ocracy of this State has either t
gone stark mad, or that it has
deliberately concluded to en
throne raucous and blatant hy
iocrisy above common political c
honesty and good morals.
