THE CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIOIN. tey tI
Several weeks ago we spoke of balf b:
the Republican-Populist convention it tlI
which met in Monroe and uomina- <*Th
ted Henry E. Hardtner, of Catahou- bigger
la parish, for Congress, in opposi- blese
tion Hon. Jos. E. Ransdell, the
Democratic nominee. We spoke of TOW]
the national election last week.
Perhaps there are some who may The
not be cognizant of the fact that the 8 o'clh
- congressional election takes place on Thn
the same day as the election for Fraul
president. The election for Rail- Pittm
road Commissioner also takes place 'L,
, on the same day; but as there is no follov
it opposition to the Democratic nom- adopt
inee, W. L. Foster, nothing fur- To
ther need be said, except that our Coun
people should not forget to cast dc
their vote for him. bgm
While the election of William J. Tax
Bryan is of the most vital interest 4how
to the nation, for the reason that his For ti
election may mean the perpetuity of For Ii
our republic as handed down to us Tae:
by our forefathers, yet the congress- Taxe
ional election comes nearer home to Al
us, especially to the people of the Tres
Fifth District. It is of the greatest po
importance that the voters of the r
district should turn out in masse and we
cast their ballots for the party nonimi
nee. While the Republican-Popu
list candidate cannot possibly win,
ng yet they expect to make an active Dr
nd canvass in the western parishes, and v ,
n may draw some strength from our ini
sh- ranks, especially amopg that class w E
of men who are half Pops and half wI 6
We also understand that the Re- to
ert publican national campaign corm- D '
er mittee has sent a batch of speakers E L
of into almost every congressional dis
ho trict of the State to work up a good
od Republican vote. While we do not
apprehend any danger from these
stump speakers, should they invade D]
our territory, yet it behooves the wor
wary Democrat to be on his guard, IJhi
and to see that the full vote of the )l
district is polled. We make this una
suggestion, not because we consider
r the Democratic sentiment of our ed t
people too apathetic, but becaus3 of insl
the fact that when there is an appar- .s
e, ent walk-over for the party nominee, by
test a great many men do not consider it adi
the necessary to vote, and therefore stay 1Bt
a- away. This should not be the case. Prc
the 1We especially urge the voters of or
of East Carroll to see that the full vote at
13,. of the parish is polled. Parish pride DSa
should be an incentive to this end, anc
for the Democratic nominee, Joe. E. jou
,Ave Ransdell, is one of our citizens-a of I
ste, man whom the people of the entire am
the district bave seen fit to nominate by lid
iow a general primary, and a man who we
die. has faithfully represented the inter- Ida
uch ests of his constituents in congress. on
nby I This he will do again, and in a bet- sai
ter manner,. for he will have had the col
experience of the last term of con- lia
"grss to guide him in his futurea w
Sof work. ief
ny, So remember that the congress-r o
ak- ional aid the national elections come sls
d a on the same day, and that the pi
not Demnocracy of the Fifth District is to
sley expected to poll an overwhelming an
ronr vote for Wmn. J. Bryan and Jos. E. to
rom R1aasdell. se.
