The division in the Democratic
ranks in this, the Fifth District, is a
thling much to be regretted by all
faithful members of the party; but
while regretting the party divisions
and declenslons, our duty is plain
before us. We must fall into line
steadily and work the more faithfully
to make up as far as possible for any
losses we may have sustained. A
close scrutiny will show that the
much talked of division is a very
one sided affair. The dividers can
safely be styled a mere corporals
guard compared to the' Democratic
army of the district that will he duly
represented at Monroe on Tuesday
Judge Gunby's political course in
the past six months or more, has
been of such an equivocal character
that it was difficult to determine
what he was driving at outside of his
Congressional mania, which he has
been troubled with for lo these many
years. He coquetedwith the Third
party by adopting the salient points
of the Ocala platform, and would
likely have remained within their
ranks up to.this time if he had not
been Webb-ed out. The following
of Judge Gunby, as a camalidate for
Congress, from among the straight
Democracy, is as it were, a mere
drop in the district bucket, and his
iohtical position as now presented,
is a complete ;burlesque and carica
ture on office seeking pretentions.
We have no desire whatever to be
little or misrepresent the talented
aspirant for Congress, Judge A. A.
Gunby, yet we ,well remember..his
vindictive speech at the Ruston Con
vention that nominated Heon. C.
Newton of Morehouse over J. Floyd
King. He there and then, without
oause or provoaetion, proceeded to
antagonize the Ouachita delegation;
and from that day to this he has
been assiduaosly engaged swapping
around and digging his own political
grave, until it is now about deep
enough for him to decend into it, and
The Banner-Democrst has been,
and is a sincere and staunch sup.
porter of Chas. J. Boatner for Con
gress from this district. We believe
in the man because he is a splendid
specimen of mascullne humanity
morally, socl'dly and intellectually.
As a representative in Congress, his
superior we honestly believe, cannot
be found among the assembled intel
ligeunce of the.Nation in the House.
HIis aptitude for business and his in
dustry is unquestioned. Not the
islightest blur can be breathed upon
the brightness of his idtegrity, while
hi'devotisn to the interests of his
constituents from one end of the
,listrict to the other, is eager, watch
ful, persistent and untiring. "Suo

We find the following extract
from the "-National Republican" in
a recent' issue of the Appeal-Ava
lanche, with accompanying corn
ments, which we earnestly commend
to the attention of our readers:
,"With the Lodge national elec
tion law in full force over the South
and various Democratic strongholds
up North, we my confidently look
for a different state of political
affairs than now exists. New York
city will then return several more
Republican Congressmen than at
present while more than 20 negro
representatives from the South will
render the Republican control of the
future Congress absolutely safe and
-'Heavy taxes should be laid upon
the property of the whites to develop
and extend the public school sys
tem of those States. Seperate schools
for the two races should be abolish
ed and the plan of bringing the
youth of both colors into close and
equal relation in schools and
churches given a fair trial, as one
of the most potent elements to
break down the detestable bourbon
ism of the South. The State laws
against the inter-marriage of the
races should be repealed, and any
discrimination against the blacks in
the matter of learning trades or ob
taining employment should be a
criminal offense- while the colored
man's rights to hold office should be
sacredly protected and recognized
A fe years of this policy will solve
the race problem satisfactorily.
Take this extract up and keep it
rolling. It ought to be placed in
every white household in the Sduth.
It shows the spirit of some of 'the
members of the Republican party.
It shows that a section of that or
ganization will never be contented
until the civilization of the South
has been negroized, until the white
girl marries the negro, until the
white man marries the negro
woman, until the white people are
"heavily taxed" to support mixed
schools, until white society in the
South is compelled by law to merge
with black society, until in short
the people of the South are trans
formed into a race of mullattos.
Read this extract to ,the Populists
around yon; tell them that the Na
tional Republican of Washington
City is an earnest supporter of Presi
dent Harrison. Read it to all your
neighbors and: friends, and tell them
to spread it wherever they go.
