Mlr. Chan. .!aivier, head of the
Citizen"' Le'ige in Newv O(leans, in
an in!ervicw with the lha:!y States
rupon the re.:ilt of the convetinl o
that mret at Baton llougv' last week,
'-In my opinion, the ticket nom
inated yv the convention at Iaton
Rouge wi!l ,ommamln the lharty I
support of every true I)etnocrat in
the State. It nety tot be in every
respect a perfect ticket, and the
over-capt ious nu'vy fid suficient
flaws in it to sateify their fault-find
ing proclivitie.. In some particul
ars (and they are by no means few
and far bet ween) the ticket cannot
hoe improved upon. As a whole it
is an excellent ticket and fully wor
thy of the litarty support of every
white man in Louisiana, who earn
estly desires to absolutely insure the
supremacy of his race, and to elim
inate from our politics the vicious
and degrading influences which per.
petually threaten the peace, pros
perity and safety of the State.
"'It cannot be denied, but must on
the contrary he cheerfully admitted,
by every just and fair-minded citizen
that the ticket owes its excellence
largely to the zeal and courage of
Governor Foster. his course at this
momentous cotnj:tcture has won for
him the warm commendation of
every Democrat who loves his State,
and honestly and earnestly cares for
the weltare and happiness of her
"I am convinced that the Demo
crats of Louisiana will rally as one
man to the support of the ticket, and
that the vote in favor of the conven
tion will be overwhelming."
