WHERE WILL THE RESPONSI
BILITY REST I
The outlook of Democracy in Lou
isiana has for nearly a year been bad
enough to vex and harass the hearts
of all the t:ernest and devoted metn
hers of the Democratic party; but
the tevelopmcniits of the past mouth
lIhae adcded mattCria.ly to the danger
andl distresu. We refer to the d(1
fection of pronminernd members, the
organ;zation of the People's party as
a political venture and the serious
division in the Fifth Congressional
district, which district since the re
cent approval of the bolters by Chair
man Wiklison promises tohave two
candidates in the field claiming to be
Democrats. In other words, a house
divided against itself. We may also
mention the fact in this connection
that every effort possible is being
(and will certainly be) made to unite
the Breaux and Leonard factions of
the Republican party in the State,
and syne of our most astute party
friends honestly believe that these
efforts will be a complete success,
because orders to those in the lead
in the State have come from the 1
National Republican Committee at'
Washington. saying 'all divi-ious
must be healed in the State of Louis
This calmly considered, makes the
Democratic outlook serious enough
to claim the thoughtful attention of
the party and cast ahout with the in
quiry, Where will the responsibility
rest? What makes us so anxious at
this juncture, we find some of the
redent most prominent leaders on the
Foster side differing diametrically in
the Fifth district matter with regard
to the apportionment, as well as with
regard to the real status of the negro
in the matter.
This is what baffles and badly both
ers us. If the old factional lines
were observed and no material dif
ferences ha4 arisen between the I
v4ctorious Fosteritea, there would be
no great difficulty in defining the
several positions of those at variance,
and laying down the necessary steps
to insure unity of action in the near
future; but when those who are to
possession of the reins of the State i
government as the recognized leafirs e
of the Democracy differ so material- I
ly on important questions so as to I
threaten the disruption of the party, 4

We are writing this after over four
decades of service in the party traces.
The hotly contested battles with the
-grand old Whigs, and more bittert
contests with the Knownothings in
18M4 and thereabouts are quite fresh
in our memory, while the dark days
of reconstruction in Louisiana called
forth the courage, fidelity and en
durance of every true Democrat un-t
til military rule had ceased to exist
as a political factor in our Pelican
State, and Demooracy once more
was duly represented in the person
of Francis T. Nicholls as Governor
over fifteen years algo. With true
pride and often with throbbing pleas
are, not unmixed with fear, we per
formed our part in those days; but
never since Governor Nicholls' re
oyvil from Odd Fellows Hall to take
f-ormal posaession of the State dtIise- t
on St. Louis street., have we known
the Democracy of Loaieiana in such
a tanigled up condltlin.
There was a reokless pletureas..in
leading a Democratic forlorn hope
amid the thickest of the carpet-bag
adventurers for the protection of our
ownrights. Butalasi Havinaggained

WORSE AND MORE OF IT.
When the. four parishes bol'ed
r from the c .venti . of Executive
CommitteesI t i4t ifthh Oyres
ional district at rDmr&i on the 5tih
of August, we earnestly expressed
our regret at the occurence, and in
a few words fore.shadowed the evils
that would necessarily grow out of
setting such a .pronounced majority
at defiance In contradiction with
party usages at regular business
gatherings. We regarded the bolt
then as a remnant of the factional
leaven that had fermented the Dem
ocracy of the State for several
months, and had strong hopes that
the bolters would soon calmly re
consider the unfortunate step they
had taken and give in their adhesion
to what was done bythe convention;
but we have been badly mistaken,
for now comes Mr. T. S.Wilkinson,
Chair. of the Democratic State Cen
tral Committee, in a letter to Hon.
A. Currie of Caddo, and in a man
ner pats the four bolting parishes
on the back and virtually giving
them the endorsement of whatever
authority he may possess as chair
man of the State Cen'tral Executive
Committee. Mr. Wilkinson says :
I have seen with great regret the
split in the Fifth District, and it
will be one difficult, if not, impossi
ble to heal. I consider that the
agreement between the two factions
of the uarty last spring had settled
this apportionment business for
four years to come in all conven
tions. In a few days I shall call a
meeting of the State Central Com
mittee for New Orleans, either on
September 8 or 12, and I hope you
will be sure to -attend. We can
then consult on wha:t may be best to
be done. You remember, I sup
po~e, that you were appointed chair
;iuan of the harmonizing committee
i of the State Central Committee. If
you come to New Orleans soon let
me see you. Very truly, your
friend, TEuo. S. WTILKINSON.
We sincere!y trust that the State
Central Committee when they meet
in New Orleans will speedily find a
possible way to heal the difficulty
that Mr. Wilkinson seems so des.
pondent about, by recognizing thei
right of district conventions to make
their own apportionments according
to previous usage, and without any
regard to the temporary emergency
argument, the necessity for which
having passed away.
The free, unbiased and plainly
expressed will of the majorty in
parish, District and State Conven
tions amust be respected and sub
mitted to by the minority in order
that hsrmony may prevail.
We have headed this brief article
'-worse and more of it," because we
find among the majority in favor of
the population apportionment many
men that were prominent in the
Foster ranks. We need mention
but one, Heon. F. P. Stubbs of
Ouachita, who stood fearlessly in
the front ranks, facing ' the brunt
of every battle offered until the
faction fight was over andi the Fos
ter wing was victorious. Citing
tits one instance out of the many, the
far-reaching tangling up of the par
ty interests by the bolt and the
publicly expressed views of Chair
man Wilkinson thereon, becomes
plainly evideat, and the end is not
When the faction fight was on
the lines were clearly drawn and
well defined, with the promise of
peace and quietade when the contest
was over; but this new departure
from the line of harmony and unity
extends its ruinous ramifications in
to the very vitals of the party-into
the Foeterites and McEneryites
that were enqually alike. Starting out
with a small ground work of dis
gruantled sectional jealousy against
the river parishee because of the
many darkies within their bound
aries, they have. recruited from the
Alliances, Farmers' Union, Third
party and other new fangled. com
bines until four parishes or rather the
majorities in said parishes, think
they are strong enough to rule the
district over the other eleven, and
failing at that, their Insubordination
points directly 4o mnevitable raina;

Where then is the difference in the
status of the negroes, provided they

in the piney woods where they are
few, or in the river parishes where
they are quite numerous? How can
white supremacy and its principlep
