St. Tammany parish has had
remarkable political coincidences
in the past few months. It has
lost within that short time two
public officials unusually popular,
both men of high integrity. As
sessor Crawford died while an
unopposed nominee for re.elec
tion with a part of . his term uu
expired. The Parish Executive
Committee nominated Warren
Thomas. Sheriff Brewister died
an unopposed nominee for his
office with a part of his term un
expired. Last Monday the Par
ish Executive Committee nomina
ted Walter Galatis, who had been
chief duputy under Sheriff Brew
ster for eighteen years.
But aside from the peculiarities
of these happenings, the most re
markable fact is the nomination
of Mr Galatas by acclamatlion,
there having not been a dissenting
voice. In the meantime under the I
law Coroner Bulloch became act
ing sheriff and Mr. Galatas was
sworn in as chief deputy. In a
day or so Mr. Galatas received
his appointment by Governor
Pleasant as sheriff for the unex- a
pired term, In the meantime
Sheriff Bulloch had drawn up pa
pers as Coroner addressed to him.

The nomination was made by
the members of the new Parish
Fxoutive Committee on motion of
Judge Thomas M. Burns.
The committee at this meeting
proceeded to elect delegates to
the State Convention which will
elect delegates to the National
Convention which meets in San t
Francisco. This action was tak. U
en to avoid the expense of an ex- f
