Interesting Letter from Mr. AswelL
Natchitoches, La., Sept. 30, 1912.
Editor Colfax Chronicle:
Permit me to express through
your columns my gratitude to
the people of the Eighth district
for,the high honor of being the
Democratic nominee for Con
gress.
I am asked to assist in the Na
tional Democratic campaign for
Woodrow Wilson throughout the
month of October. A Demo
cratic nomination in this district
M considered equivalent to an
election, as all Democrats who
participated in the primary feel
honor-bound to support the Dem
ocratic nominee. I feel it, there
fore, my duty to go and do all I
can for the success of my party
in the Nation; but if my friends
think I am needed in the district
before th Ogeneral election I
shall come at any time to do
whatever work seems necessary.
My duty is to serve my party,
but my first duty is to the Demo
cratic party in the State and dis
triet. I am anxious to represent
and serve all my constituents,
and I shall welcome suggestions
and advice from any citizen in
the district. Before I begin my
term in CQngress I expect to visit
all sections of the district to get
first-hand information as to the
needs of the people.
I shall go to Congress recog
nizing that my platform is a sr
cred contract with the people o~
the Eighth district. I shall lose
no time in presenting to Congress c
a bill carrying out the will of the i
Louisiana legislature in directing i

the Secretary of the Interior to
hasten the settlement of all con
tested land titles resulting from
the New Orleans Pacific land
grants. I shall do all in my pow
er to restore for settlement all
lands secured by defrauding the
government. I am now collect
ing data on this subject, and, in
addition to the information ob
tainable from official records, I
shall welcome information from
any citizen.
I shall work to transfer the
burden of levee building, mainte
nance and drainage from the State
to the Federal government, and
for a revision of the tariff down
ward, in the people's interest.
I shall do my part to secure
more Federal aid for ,road build
ing, agricultural education, and
for tie immediate and rapid im
provement and extention of the
rural delivery service, and for
the improvement of country life.
I shall devote myself unreser
vedly to have the Commissioner
of Labor made a member of the
President's cabinet, and give him
the same rank as the Secretary
of war. The battles of the fu
ture are to be fought, not with
guns, but the real victories for
the people are to be won in our
industrial enterprises. The Sec
retary or Commissioner of Labor
placed in the President's cabinet
will give proper and due dignity,
representation, and organization
to labor. I am committed to such
recognition for the laboring men
of the country. There can be no
real prosperity, no contentment,
no happiness, no promise for the
º Nation until the men and women
" who produce the wealth of the
= country are given the proper rec
I ognition, and participation in the
products of their labors.
Restlessness and discontent
ment are seen on every hand,
and all thinking men recognize
the imperative need of immediate
relief. The remedy is not far to
seek.
The Republican party has been
thoroughly tried, 1hd it has ut
terly failed to give the people re
lief.
The Bull Moose party is a fash
ionable circus, parading the coun
try to the extreme delight of the
rollicking crowds.
The Socialist party believes in
and stands for equal franchise
between the whites and the ne
groes, which fact alone makes it
an impossible party in the South.
The one party that stands for
the man on the ground, that
stands for equality and mobility
of opportunity for the poor man
as well as the man more fortu
nately circumstanced, the only
party that can and will protect
the interests of the consumer and
control the corporate interests in
the country, and thus bring to
our people peace, prosperity, and
contentment, is the Democratic
party, the party of -the great
plain people, now being led to
victory by Wilson and Marshall. I
Respectfully
